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 badlyNone of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this  is Not a Christmas shopping list.  It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family.

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.

It's always good to check the RAOK thread before you post your wishes - someone may already have what you are looking for. (For those of you looking for them, coupons are offered on the RAOK  on a regular basis.)   There is now a separate coupon thread within the RAOK forum, if you wish to trade there.

If you post wishes, try to grant at least one wish yourself, so this place is not considered a "gimme" group,  where people post but don't send out.  PBS members can become good friends, don't abuse, please!

If you see a wish you are able to grant, just PM the poster and ask for their name and address - that's it, simple and easy and a lot of fun!

Any questions, please feel free to PM me, I will try to help.

Baby(just soft) Crocheting yarn, I'm looking into making blankets, one for myself and friends with new babys.

ANYTHING turtle. I have turtle tattoos, turtle pillows, glass turtles. =P <3 turtles but we moved and i have room for them now! lol.

Wonderpets items. My daughter loves them, but all walmart has is the $20 huge talking stuffed animals.

Easy but good recipes for a family of three. I'm not a great cook, but i have a self chosen diet that excludes sausages, very greasy foods, and i have to go very light on milk due to liver problems and minor lactose intolerance. So anything that doesn't have very much milk or those items in it that a 4 year old will eat, I would be appreciative. PM for address, or can send to email. (ibeaeptree@yahoo.com) <WoW reference ftw.

  • anything InuYasha (stickers, characters, mangas, comics) my hubby is a huge fan
  • also anything Rumiko Takahashi (same person who created InuYasha) she had a few other comics
  • anything Naruto DD is a huge fan
  • my sons have recently started watching Pokemon because of the new school schedule and I was hoping maybe someone could send then some Pokemon things like stickers or those flat plastic pencil cases. I guess it ran out of fashion and mine started late LOL
  • coupons for gum (I am a gum addict since I quit smoking)
  • recipes that children can cook (these don't need to be snail mailed), but they have to be something that with little to no adult supervision a child/teen can cook and be healthy. We are trying to put together a cookbook for all of the latch key children/ parents. Ideas for those who are left to fend for themselves until their parents come home. We had three house fires in our area last year from 12-15 year olds who were home alone and trying to cook themselves something to eat. We want to help them see recipes that are safer and easier to cook when there isn't adult supervision.

I'm wishing for ...

- blank recipe cards, any size, amount, or design, to be used for some recipe swaps I am in as well as in my own "keeper" recipe file.

- any old or extra rosaries you have, even if broken, or any rosary parts (beads, medals, etc.);  my husband has found that he enjoys making simple rosaries and leaving them in chapels for people to use and/or take and keep.

- any parts from old Scrabble games: letter tiles, letter racks, the board itself, etc. (to make quirky crafty stuff with).

- zines -- either your own or ones made by others that you are finished with. (I have some to swap, too, if you'd like.)
