This is where we post our wishes - maybe things we collect, something we can no longer find in our area, things we have always wanted etc, etc. No wish is too unusual (though common sense is appreciated!); you never know what will turn up.

We must all abide by these PBS rules :
You may not wish for money or money-like items such as gift cards, or for monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but you may not solicit funding. This includes donations for 'gofundme' and other fund-raising events.
No buying or selling or advertising. No spam posts.
No wishing for credits.  Credits are bought, sold and loaned only in the Book Bazaar forum, or use the PBS Kiosk to purchase.
Do NOT ask for books, since books are swapped on the site and book deals are made in the Book Bazaar. Sorry, but you may not ask for free books of any kind. (Unpostable books are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread.  There is also a Damaged/Unpostable Virtual Box in the Games forum.)

Our own RAOK rules: 
Please do not offer payment for the things you are sent, including postage. RAOKs are given freely, asking nothing in return except a thank you. You could pay it forward by granting a wish yourself.
Please limit your wishes to no more than 10. Lists could get very long. You can always edit as you go along.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PMs between members. This keeps the threads clutter-free and easy to use. When you come to this ***I Wish*** thread, you see wishes. In the ***RAOK*** thread, it's all about things we are giving away - simple and easy. And to protect your privacy, please do not post your address in the thread - it's all done via PM.
Please check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!
PLEASE say THANK YOU to the person who grants your wish.  You may use our monthly ***Thank You*** thread, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the member(s) who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Check the RAOK thread before you post wishes -- the thing you want may already be there for the asking!  If you see a wish you can grant, just PM the poster for their address.

And please remember, if one of the moderators contacts you about a posting, then we are only trying to keep the forum running smoothly and according to PBS rules. If you are asked to change, move, or delete your post, please do so. Most of you know that the PBS team does get involved to edit posts, and accounts do get suspended, if rules are broken. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!   

Feel free to PM me with any questions!

Happy New Year, everyone! I thank all of you for another year of your love and friendship, too :) all of you mean so much to me and I know God had us meet, My prayer above all else for all of you is to be happy and know always God is with and loves you as you grow to and with Him. Jesus is there and cares.

My RAOK sticker wishes, lol, if you can believe I am starting to rebuild my sticker collection. Lori (catsanddogs) for so very long has come to find Care Bear Stamp stickers for me that look like this: https://www.amazon.com/Care-Bears-72-Stickers/dp/B00415XNSQ Please, please do not spent the almost $10 on Amazon for these for me! Lori has found them at Dollar Tree, big thank you and hug to you, Lori, btw :) Any orginal Care Bear stickers would be awesome, I am not a fan of the newer versions of the bears. Always appreciate Christian stickers along with Birthday and flowers.

One hard to find item, I would appreciate all of you keeping an eye out for is these Dixie 3oz bath cups: http://shop.hgdelivery.com/product/00042000439008/dixie-bath-cups-3-oz These cups are so fun and cute with at least 10 different animal choices. I even once brought a box of them to church for the kids. I am looking for the yellow box pictured. Currently, most all stores sell a similar product in a blue box,  Please do not spend money on the blue box! That product is not the same as the yellow box as it only has 4 designs of cups.

Hugs and thank you! Happy, Happy New Year with love!

I would love a blinkie to commemorate 5 years as a non smoker to replace the x-smoker blinkie in my siggie line.  

Something where there would be a blank space where I could add/change the number of years.

"Proud to be, _ years, smoke free"   Something like that..... thanks

I would also love a winter blinkie for my siggie.  I tried and failed miserably.  Something similar in size to the rest and easy to read.  Something to show I hate winter, lol.   Brr, it's too cold!   or Best part of winter is when it's over.   or Let's Skip Winter....something along those lines.

Unfortunately, I'm not so talented to do myself.

Things I'm on the lookout for:

-- Anything wearable (or that can craftily be made wearable!) with trees, leaves, vines, acorns, or other plantish themes.  Especially jewelry, scarves, beads, buttons, etc.

-- Green fabric that's velvety, suede-like, or similiarly textured -- any amount is welcome.  Also happy to repurpose old clothes that fit the description.

-- Yarn in any version of green you want to pass along -- any amount is welcome.

-- Size 7 circular knitting needles, the longer the better, but will appreciate any length.

-- Piercing stud earrings (the hypoallergenic ones with the backs that click into place), pairs or single, or extra backs that go with them.

-- Bluejay or spider things

(Please nothing new, just things you're looking to pass along or happen upon super cheap at a thrift store, etc.)

Thanks for looking, and Happy New Year!!!  You all are awesome. :)

This month I'd be very grateful for:

Hello everyone!  First I wish that all of you are doing well.  I havent been here in months but have a few wishes due to some changes in our living situation.  

1.  Marlboro coupons to use on the cartons.......DH still smokes  frownbut he doesnt smoke in our home anymore (he has a separate porch now his smoking room) AND he doesnt drink alcohol anymore!  wink  So I can tolerate one bad habit to get rid of another.

2.  Coupons for cat food, litter, other items..........DH surprised me with a kitty for Christmas, then a week later her sister joined us.   Yes, another change in our living situation.   They are eating dry kitten food now;  I use multi-cat clumpable litter. 

3.  Full size shower caps (like the ones in hotel rooms)  I use them to cover pies.  They work!

I can't really think of anything else at the moment.   We are both retired now and have moved to Georgia since I've participated in this thread. I'll check other's wishes to see if I can help out.   Have a blessed New Year everyone!

FOUND!   Does anyone remember who was doing a mural on a wall with fox?  I just found a piece of fabric in my stash that is fox related and I thought the person might still want it.  Vicky

My request this month is for prayers for my Aunt Nancy.  So many of you sent my Uncle Ted cards for his birthday and for Veteran's Day but he lost his battle this morning with cancer.  Thank you to all who made this last year one that he enjoyed.  Your cards and thoughts meant so much to him and to me.

Prayers needed for my BIL, Josh, currently undergoing surgery for colon cancer at Sloan-Kettering in NYC. He is only in his 40's and it has spread to lymph nodes already.  I'm waiting for news once he gets into recovery room tonight.

Update: 1/12-- Josh is sitting in a chair, minimal meds so far.  They didn't take as much of the colon as they thought they would need to so that's good news.  Pathology report expected TU.

Update: 1/16-- Josh was released and got home last night.  Waiting for the lab results.
