The List for Christmas - Well, if only Santa brought it all.

The List

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 dreamy...you know, just in case Santa found that I was really worth it or thought I was really good this year. Don't laugh, I am really this super geeky so to ask for all of these things really fit me and my inner geek.  

The 2014 Christmas Wish List
  1. 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. 
  2. 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! 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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, 23. & 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.) 
  5. 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 to 1T. 
  6. 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 mic
  7. 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!
