edge of desire

Hello everyone! My name is Gwen, and I'm a 19 year old girl from the Netherlands. "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things" by Robert Brault is quote that is pretty important in my life. And this project fits this quote perfectly. So after discovering it last year, I was determined to do it again this year. And here I am!

I've browsed my way through the entries, and already found some wishes I can grant. So now felt like a good time to post my own.

01. Polaroids
I felt in love with polaroid pictures about two years ago. I just bought my own camera, when they announced the production would stop, which made me incredibly sad. Now that I've started my first year of college, I'll be moving out soon. And in my new room I'd love to have a polaroid wall. Of course I do not own enough photos yet, so therefore my biggest wish this year is to receive polaroid pictures from all over the world. It doesn't matter what's on it, everything is very very welcome. Those who include a little story about the picture make me even happier.

02. Polaroid 600-film
Now that the production stopped, this film became really expensive. And since I'm a student it's hard to buy as much as I would like. So maybe there's someone out there, who doesn't use the film anymore. Or has an extremely old package left in de refridgerator. I'd be happy with it.

03. The Fray Articles/Posters/Singles etc
The Fray is piano rock band that formed in Denver, in 2002. Ever since 2005 they mean the world to me. They are my personal heroes. I've seen them live six times, and I actually met them after the show 5 out of 6 times. All these 5 times are in the highlights of my life.
Unfortunately they aren't as big in Holland as they are in the US. Therefore it is hard to find articles in magazines or even their cd singles (I could buy them online, but that means I'm facing shipping costs that are three times the price of the single..). I'd love to receive ANYTHING you can get me about the Fray. Even the littlest pictures will do. Or just fan stories with or without your own pictures would be amazing, too. As I said, anything :)

04. A Rubik's Cube
I've wanted one ever since I saw 'The Pursuit of Happyness". I once found one in the Netherlands (on the market), but it broke immediately after I touched it. So I'm still looking for one.

05. (Old) Nylon, Frankie or Rolling Stone magazines
These are my favorite magazines, and again you can't get them in the Netherlands. So if you have some old issues that you don't need anymore, I'd love to get them.

06. Pokémon Trading Cards
There was a time when I had all 150 cards. But some of them disappeared miracously, and I would like to get them back to complete my series for the second time. The missing ones are:
#9 Blastoise, #24 Arbok, #42 Golbat, #65 Alakazam, #97 Hypno, #110 Weezing, #135 Jolteon, #149 Dragonite.
I'm searching for the first generation cards (base set one, jungle and fossile). (click for example). So these were the specific cards I really like to get back.
But basically every card from first or second generation is welcome (that means the first 251 pokemon).

07. Postcards/Prints/Art/Photography of New York City, Paris or London (or other big cities)
I love these cities and it would be awesome if I could decorate my new room with some nice postcards/prints or whatever something that features these lovely cities.

08. Donate to the Impossible Project
Re-inventing instant film for vintage Polaroid cameras, is this project's mission. And they are going strong. But money is always needed.

09. Donate money to the Diabetes Fund in your country
I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was eight years old. It's not the worst disease you can have, but it certainly effects your life in many ways. It's a chronical disease, so once you have it, you're stuck with it for the rest of your life. Therefore, it would be great if they found a cure for it. Money can help us find that cure.
- American Diabetes Association
- In Europe pretty much every country has it's own fund/association. You can find them easily on the internet.

10. Pay it forward
and make the world a better place :)

There's actually a program you can get that turns your photos into polaroid looking ones. It's not bad! I don't know exactly what it's called by try googling it!
i know about that programme.. but there's no such thing as a real polaroid ;)
I actually just recently gave a little to the ADA. Thank you for supporting it as a charity <3
Hi! That would be so so so great! :D
It doesn't really matter if the postcard is new, or there's text written upon it. But I prefer to get in in an envelop, because of my parents ;)

And I would certainly be interested in that rubik's cube. I've been wanting one for such a long time now!
Going to email you right now :)
I have two artworks of London that used to belong to my parents, I'm not sure whether they are watercolours or prints, if you want them I'd love to send them to a new home :)

Will you send me an email at enui(dot)iune(at)gmail(dot)com with a link to this wishlist?
#7 - I have a ton of pokemon cards laying around, I am going to go look through them shortly and see if I have any of the ones you are looking for. I will let you know.
