Make A Wish!

Hi! My name is Nashay, I'm a 25 year old artist and City Year corps member (it's a program of AmeriCorps, for those who aren't familiar with it) from Pennsylvania. For the past few years, my holiday joy has been, well, nonexistent, for many reasons. I remember a time when I really loved the holidays and I want to try to recapture that abundant joy...

I love dolls, stuffed animals, art, t-shirts with quirky or funny sayings on them, and music of all kinds. Here goes!

[one]
A Sonali doll, from American Girl. She is a limited edition, only available until the end of the year, and I'm so afraid I won't be able to get her... I've wanted one all year!


[two]
Someone to help me create a website for my art. I have created a community here on LiveJournal, an Etsy shop, and a fan page on Facebook (if you want me to link to them, just ask, and I'll do so in the comments), but most artists have a website to link all of these things together. I think it will help when I try to approach galleries about showing my work...and make me me more viable as a professional artist.

[three]
I'd like to be able to afford to take a class or two at my local community arts center, Fleisher Art Memorial. I miss having a dedicated space to make art and other people with whom I can exchange ideas and critiques.

[four]

A subscription to Juxtapoz Magazine. It is one of my favorite art magazines!

[five]
Magazines I could cut up and use in collages (National Geographic, fashion magazines, any will do, the more variety, the better!). If it helps, I prefer to use images, not text, in my artwork.

[six]
World of Warcraft pre-paid cards. It's a massive time suck, but hey, it's fun!

[seven]
A plane ticket (or unused frequent flier miles) to visit my girlfriend. We've been in a long-distance relationship for about two years now, and we've never actually visited each other due to the cost of airfare. She's about 2,000 miles away, in the Seattle, WA area.

[eight]
Art Supplies (I have a list on DickBlick.com; search under my name [Nashay Jones] and city and state [Philadelphia, PA]. I don't know why, but my name comes up twice, and one of those is a blank list)

[nine]

Gift cards (American Girl, Visa gift cards, Target gift cards)

[ten]
Anything from my Amazon.com wishlist (in relatively good condition, please!)


Oh, and if you'd like to contact me, send me an email at lilflutterbychild at gmail dot com... Happy holidays!
I can't fulfill any of your wishes, but I'd like to say that you rock for doing the City Year project.
While cruising through your Amazon list, I noticed that you would like a copy of Amelie.

Do you still want a copy, slightly used? If so, PM me a shipping address and it's yours!
ah!
i have magazines. i cut out some images for MY work, but there are still plenty left. most of them are fashion, but its something.. and i live in philly! cause it really isnt worth mailing old magazines, they are heavy...
