    Blogmas Day 3: Christmas Wishlist

    I am probably going to catch up because I don’t want to do the next few. I am linking up here.

    For this past birthday I put together a wishlist because I am so picky that I’m difficult to buy for. I got three things off of it!!!! I updated it and sent it out for Christmas, so I’m hoping I will get more off of it. I put things that are fairly easy to find (except the calligraphy pens) because I can get a lot of my picky stuff myself (like luxury yarns, shoes, jewelry, etc.), and I made sure I made it organized and simple with enough for the giver to be able to choose but not enough to be overwhelmed.

    One thing I want to buy this season is sparkly paper and silver cord to make snowflakes and cinnamon candy canes. And perhaps I can find the teeny-tiny white fairy lights I want on sale and Mixbook might go on sale again (although that is too much spending).
