Erica (24/f/usa)'s Wishlist

Hello, super friends. My name is Erica. I just turned 24 a couple of days ago. I live in Indiana, USA. This is my third year being involved in this community, from my third username. Although I keep my blog on another server, I still wanted to be involved in this community for Christmas. I love granting wishes where I can, and I hope you can grant some of my wishes, too. If you comment on this entry please include the link to your wishlist!!

1. Neopoints! What I really want are Royal, Pirate, Desert, and Mystery Island Paint Brushes. I don't expect anyone to give me these paint brushes but any Neopoints or items that are given to me for Christmas will go towards my paintbrush funds. My screen name is everythingshines.

2. Jason Mraz! Anything Mraz related would be amazing. Any and all of his CDs (LP, singles, etc- hard copies, I already have digital versions), T-shirts (any size- if they don't fit, I will alter them somehow), Mraz-like hats, magazine articles, photos, website layouts (for my blog!), buttons, badges, patches, stickers, A Beautiful Mess DVD, and an address as to where I can send him fanmail. One more thing that's kind of out there, but I would like a local friend who likes Jason Mraz as much as I do, because I would like to have someone I can go to his concerts with.

3. Arts and Craft Supplies! Stickers (any and all), plain metal hair clips, stationery, gel pens, colored pens, fountain pens, ribbon, hemp paper, felt, feathers, water-soluble crayons and colored pencils (it's okay if they are used or reject colors you don't like), seed beads, glass beads, charms, wire, fabric, pretty pictures, glue, water colors, paint brushes, acrylic paints, fabric paints, scrapbooking elements, scrapbooking paper, digital scrapbooking supplies, fun shaped hole punches, die cuts, oil pants, and so on. Basically anything that can be used for crafts!

4. Messenger Bags! I have a thing for purses, especially for messenger bags. They're big and fit all my stuff I carry regularly, also they are comfortable to wear over my shoulder. I especially like ones that are canvas and very durable, but any kind of messenger bags would make me very happy.

5. Scrapbooks! I want an 8x8 scrapbooks that you put your pages into- not the kind with the paper already in there. I'm not really sure what these are called, or even if I am explaining it right. They have the plastic page protector things in there with an opening on the top and you just drop your page right in there. I don't care what the cover looks like, or whether or not it has a "preview window" on the cover. Hehe, I hope I explained this okay.

6. Giftcards! I sometimes have trouble affording groceries, so some gift cards would be really great. Even if they are used and have small balances, any little bit would help. My husband is in culinary school but is currently taking lecture classes so he can't bring home food like he used to. Also, he recently lost his job and his new one doesn't allow him to bring home leftovers at the end of the day, so food has been an issue as of late. Some stores that are in town where I shop are CVS, Kroger and Walmart.

7. Books! I like to read but I don't drive and have trouble getting to the library. Although I will read almost anything, some books I specifically would like are The Time Traveler's Wife, Dark Tower (series), Breaking Dawn, Rita Hayworth & The Shawshank Redemption, and so on. I don't have cable television or see movies that often, so books is what keeps me busy.

8. Jewelry & Accessories! I don't have my ears pierced but I have a Monroe piercing, 16g. I would love some labret jewelry to wear there, hair clips, headbands, necklaces and bracelets, and fun, funky brooches. I love bright colors, interesting pieces and homemade jewelry. Also, my husband would like some sort of chain to wear his wedding band on while he is at work, since it is too big on him and we can't afford a resize. Currently, he takes his band off and puts it in his pocket but that makes him uncomfortable.

9. Stuff For My Husband! As I said before, my husband needs a chain to wear his wedding band on. Also, he would like anything related to the following fandoms: One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Wolverine, Spiderman, any sort or Marvel comic toy, poster, anything WOW related.

10. Inspiration & Hope! This is what is most important to me this Christmas. My stepdad was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and he hasn't been given a lot of time. We are preparing ourselves for this to be our last Christmas with him. My mother is having a very hard time. If anyone could send some greeting cards, poetry, inspirational books and quotes, inspirational music, stories of cancer recovery, anything that will help make this a little easier on my family I would appreciate this so much. Anything I receive, cards, letters, angel figurines, anything-- will be bundled up and given to my stepdad and mom for Christmas.

I don't mind getting things that you don't like or things that have been used already. If you reply to this entry, please include the link to your wish list so I can try to grant some of your wishes as well. It would make me happy to be able to give gifts that people want. If you would like my address to send things, please include your e-mail address and I will e-mail it to you as soon as possible.

You can contact me privately at

Have a beautiful Christmas, filled with joy, love, laughter and light. I wish you all, all the happiness in the world.
Hello again!

If you e-mail me your address at, I know I can come up with at least some bits and bobs of crafty goodness.

I'd also like to help with #10, and will gladly send at least a card (are you looking for Christmas or general greeting cards? Or both?). Just let me know!

I'd like to grant one of your wishes. Email me your address: glumbumble at gmail dot com.

Edit: Whoops! Forgot to link: my wishlist.

I can help you out with the neopoints. :D
Put something worthless for sale in your shop for 200, 000 Np and I'll buy it. I don't use my account anymore and it would make your pets so pretty. <3
Shoot me an email at uncivilizedlove (at) with your address. I have The Time Traveler's Wife that I just finished reading and now have no use for keeping it. I'm sure I have some others I can send as well, I'll have to check out my bookshelf.
I can also do Neopoints if you still need them! Let me know the easiest way or send me a link when you have the whatever set up (I find it a bit odd that you can't just give someone points directly ...?).
Hey there! Can you send me your address at smallwaldo at gmail dot com? (And when you do, can you remind me of your username, so I can remember what it is that I plan to send you :)
I know we've already talked, but I want to reply to your comment so I don't forget and e-mail you again later. Also, if you would mail me your address I have something I would like to send out to you.
I don't have a lot this year, but I'm pretty sure I can get together a box of crafty things for you, and a few things for #10. I'm sending you an e-mail to get the address now.

I lost my grandmother (I was her primary caregiver for 6 years) to lung cancer a few years back. It's a terrible thing, and so difficult in the moment. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

My list is here.
I may have something Wolverine for your hubby. What size sweatshirt does he wear?
I would love to send your family a Christmas card. I will email you soon (when school is settled down) to get your address. Please email me at if you haven't heard from me within the next couple weeks.
What style(s) of jewelry do you like? I may or may not be able to make/get some handmade stuff, depending on time...
I really like any sort of style. I'm not picky. I especially love anything and everything handmade.
I need to reply to this so I don't forget that I already have contacted you outside of LJ. I looked at your list and there really isn't anything I can help you with, but is it okay if I send you a Christmas card?
I added you on Neopets (canders7) I have some items I want to give you, hope they help some...
Thank you so much, Christina, I added you as my friend over there. Happy Thanksgiving. Or if you're not in America to celebrate, have a very nice November 26th. :D
