|Page: Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
This is where we post things we would like,(except money request or books by name). Please remember that we do not offer money for items we wish for because PBS frowns upon that. It also lessens the spirit of this thread and the forum. If you receive, try to give. Sometimes the littlest things can bring a smile.
Note: If I write to you about something you have requested, it is only to inform you that the request is not what this thread is about. If you wish to leave your request in this thread, that is up to you.
First: Remember: this is the place to wish. We all have wishes. If you feel someone has asked for something too large, expensive or extravagant, just ignore. Please be kind. Don't make someone feel badly. None of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this is NOT a place to stock pantries, get all our presents for others, etc. It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family. Also, PBS rules do not allow one to ask for money, even for charities, here. You may ask for other items, such as stamps and boxtops, etc.
Here, you list a few things you like/collect/can use. Obviously, we all like certain things like credits, wish-list books, etc. This is NOT for that kind of thing. This is for things others might have around the house that you can use (for instance if you collect postcards, bookmarks, Coke codes, or if there's a candy you love you can't find in your area, etc). ** Please remember that books, by title or genre, should not be requested in this forum(I Wish thread). There may be other places for that. If someone sends you a book, please receive it and thank the member sending it.
Please limit your list to about 10 items (Remember, you can edit your list), and if someone PMs you for your address, please acknowledge and thank them when you receive whatever they send you. There is a separate thank you thread so we can keep this one clean and easy to read. It can get jumbled and hard to read with extra clutter so if we can do our best to keep it to our requests and the rare bump, that would be awesome :) It's important to thank everyone who send something either by PM and or the thank you thread so that we know the item arrived. Members do not want to send things, continously, to others who do not let them know the items have arrived.
I'm wishing for:
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Happy July everyone! I'm 2 weeks into treatment now, and when I'm not hooked up to the IV at the clinic I am sitting in the car to/from or I'm sitting on my couch resting and trying not to go crazy! Here are some things that would be such a blessing:
-DVD's to keep me occupied (there is a TV at the clinic, I will be donating DVD's to their collection!)
-K-cups, any flavor
-Extra board game pieces for my craft project- anything from scrabble tiles to monopoly houses
-Greenies or other grain-free treats/chews for my patient dog
-Plant seeds or cuttings- especially houseplants (Most vines or succulents would easily survive the mail). REALLY want a Monstera Deliciosa :o)
-Green beads, ribbons, or string for making bracelets... also would like letter beads of any type. especially need L, Y, M, E.
-Long shot: I would love some PICC line covers that are cuter than "Hospital Gauze" lol like this. It has to have elastic, my line is in the crease of my elbow and the sleeves are always rolling down :/
-MORE THAN ANYTHING..... please please PLEASE watch out for ticks this summer! There are more this year than usual, and practically no one understands just how severely sick you can become if you contract a tick-born illness and it goes undiscovered, untreated, or misdiagnosed & mistreated! Check your family, check your pets, and EDUCATE YOURSELF!

EDIT July 9, 2012
Added this one, if anyone makes address labels or has a program to make ones with graphics...I'm in need of some personalized ones. Thanks!
Scrapbook stickers, or any themed stickers of any kind, left overs are fine.
Scrap aida clothe (cross stitch material) just looking for small sized pieces you may have left over from a project, book mark sized to about 4 x 4...I do swaps and just stitch small items so the left over cloth will come in handy. 14 to 18 count is preferable.
scrap cardstock..the harder paper from scrapbooking you use for card making, preferable 4 x4 squares..any color or theme..just left overs are fine.
lean cuisine reward codes
My daughter is learning to cross stitch so if you have any kid type patterns...the teaching kids to learn to cross stitch patterns, having a hard time finding these, maybe you have some.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES!!!! Anything helps, I have a school list, can give you specifics if you are able to help. I apperciate anything..being limited income, and they demand so much for them, it is just hard to sometimes get them everything they need. I mean seriously what child in school needs 24 yellow highlighters? So if you can help with anything I apperciate it greatly!!!
Last but not least...the kids birthdays are coming up, if you have anything small that your kids don't play with or don't use that I could give to mine as a gift I appercaite it, my son loves books, computer games, and transformers. Daughter loves crafting, books, and dressing up her build a bear....also a big one for her, is playing salon with our 6 month old chiweenie pup...she dresses her and the dog just soaks up the love...any size medium to large dog outfits (or that fit a long 15 pound dog) or doggy ear bows...she would love. If you have extras your dog doesn't wear, my daughter and pup will put it to good use.
