My Christmas Wish List

I have seen some funny blog posts popping up lately from some very funny bloggers. This is not one of those posts. While I concur with what many are saying, the common theme and one I yell throughout the year is "Can I please take a crap without the circus?" The circus being, the 6 year old coming in to wash his hands, the 4 year old who "just want to talk to you", the 23 month old unable to survive two minutes without seeing my beautiful face, the cat who isn't opposed to going as far as sticking her paw under the door to say she cannot possibly live that moment without me. I'm thankful my hubby and 15 year old understand the need for pooping privacy.

Then there is the bed. Another wish is to just get to sleep a full night in a bed, by myself. Don't get me wrong, I love waking up to L's mischievious smile and kids under my feet and on my legs, but not every. Single. Morning. SPACE PEOPLE! I know, one day I will wish they were there. Yeah, you obviously don't know me very well and how much I covet my sleep and personal space.

But I digress, this is a wish list that has me feeling old. Yet, it has me feeling somewhat accomplished, even if just a little. It will give me learning room and able to create and gift and feel skillful and important even if only to my children. My daughter thinks I can make everything she sees on TV. I'm flattered, it's just that reality is gonna be quite the kick in the pants when she gets older and those rose coloured glasses start to chip their colour. For now she can believe that I can make everything her little heart desires.

So there is a theme to my list, can you see what it is?

A rotary cutter, clear ruler and mat would definitely help me with some projects that I'd like to start on, but refraining from

This dressmakers dummy is gorgeous. I think right now I more want it for decoration, although eventually I would love to start making dresses and such.

And check out these beautiful fabrics from IKEA. Yes, we now have one in Winnipeg. I am tempted to venture in just to purchase these awesome patterns. Or, someone could just do that for me and gift me a yard or two of each. *wink wink*

So there you have it. My list. A new sewing machine would be on there, but my wonderful husband bought me one for my birthday. I can't wait to use it!

What's on your Christmas Wish List?


  1. Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a
    very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a
    whole lot and don't seem to get nearly anything done.
    Here is my site : whitening cream

  2. LOL I love that line! Can't I take a crap without the circus?! lol I get the paw under the door as well so I just leave the door open so my fluffy baby won't feel abandoned. This I can do because I live alone.
    Oh how I wish I still had those rose colored glasses hehe.
    Not sure what's on my wishlist, I'll have to think about that one.
