So in order to lighten up the mood here in my writing and what I am preparing for the blog I want to tell you what's on THE LIST this year for my wish list. When I was a child I asked for crazy gifts like the both of the latest Jordan shoes or heck I can't even remember, it was too long ago, but they were things that I thought were trendy and I just needed to have. I am not sure what happened in my adulthood, but I've come to not like gifts or at least useless ones. So, this Christmas season, I thought it would be cool to sit down and put what I wanted out there this year. I really kept in mind that I wanted the gifts to be intentional + a little
- Adobe Ink and Slide Creative Cloud Connected Stylus for iPad - I actually drew my lettering in some of the prints from my first print collection - I used my hand and it took forever and a day (or at least it felt like it) on my iPad. I think this would help cut some down time and help me make better lettering at least the detail of what I letter.
- CANON PIXMA iX6820 Wireless Business Printer - My printer that I have right now is 7 years old
...I love it to death and I am surprised I haven't killed it yet, but this is the new and updated version. I will be able to print larger prints on and just thinking of it in my home makes me want to get jumpy!
- Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron 7-1/4-Quart Round French (Dutch) Oven, Dune - Okay, this has been on my list for YEARS - I want to be Julia Child and cook some marvelous dinner in it for my family or at least burn them in something nice.
- Sperry Top-Sider Women's Harlow Burnished Wedge Pump - I just LOVE these, I want them - they are almost as pivotal to me as having the Penny Hardaways in Versions 1 & 2, and the Jordans in versions 1, 2, 3. & 4. (Yes, if you presumed that I might have been the baby in the family, I sure was - there was an 8 year difference between myself and my next sister - and an 16 year difference between myself and the oldest.)
- LaCie Rugged Hard Disk Triple 1 TB USB 3.0 Firewire 800 (2x) Portable Hard Drive - This is an actual need and it's something I've put off on buying since I upgraded my MacBook Pro in 2013
- Samson Meteor Mic USB Studio Microphone (Chrome) - Podcast anyone? Yeah, it's been on my mind as something I want to do and my boss actually has one of these and I totally am in envy of him - Why? Because I want to blast community and encouragement through that
- Wacom Intuos Pro Pen and Touch Large Tablet - There is a story behind this want, my husband back in our early ages of marriage bought me a version of this and considering that we had just bought a new car and moved I said, TAKE IT BACK, not because we couldn't afford it, but I felt greedy that I was getting all of this cool stuff while he was sitting overseas.
So yeah, there it is all my wants - if I could get all of these I could have more funding to buy all of these books I want. If you ever want to know what is on my list feel free to check it out here!
