I realized that I was starting to fill other's wishes that took little or no money, so I might as well put up a couple of mine.

Step One: Make a post containing your list of (up to) 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple ("I'd love a Potter fanfic icon that's just for me") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want. If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Step Two: Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part: If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call. There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My wishes:

  1. Audible.com gift certificates

  2. Heifer International Chicken donations

  3. An icon that can serve dual purpose for "money" and "rampant consumerism".

  4. Knitting Lessons Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] the_xtina and [livejournal.com profile] soapfaerie, I can update this to: various knitting gear, like for circular things, and for doing those cable braids.

  5. Music - I'll listen to most things once if they're free, but in general I like alt/rock/pop w/ good vocals, dance music (I don't have much of this), and geek rock. Check if I already have them. This time of year I also like choral Christmas carols, Manheim Steamroller (I need more, I don't have any!), and seasonal classical music.

  6. Various other small/medium purchases from my MetaWishlist

  7. Stamps to use - I find it a pain to buy stamps, and I like interesting ones. I save old ones too, usually using all but one, and I still send old stamps in combinations to make up the current denomination of postage
