Hi! This is my first year posting to this community and I've been lurking for awhile before I finally managed to put together my list.

I'm 28, disabled due to congenital heart defects, wife and loving mom to two adopted cats.

1.  Mail! I love getting things in the mail besides bills and junk mail. Postcards, Christmas cards, magazines, etc.

2.  Handmade items. I'm an avid crocheter so I love handmade gifts and things.  Just knowing that someone took the time to make you a little something makes it that much more special. I love scarves and fingerless gloves especially. I'm also a huge Star Wars fan and I know this is probably a long shot but if anybody could make me a hand knitted or crocheted Qui-Gon Jinn my muse would be extremely grateful. All Star Wars crocheted or knitted items would be awesome, but that one is way out of my skill level to make. :D

3.  Crochet hooks! Speaking of my favorite hobby, I love getting different types of hooks made out of different materials. The size I work with the most is 5mm / H8.

4.  Stamps! I love making cards for people and I collect Stampabilities stamps. :D

5.  Livejournal friends. :D I always love making new friends. Sometimes the best friendships can be formed out of the blue. :D

6.  Anything from my amazon.com Wish List

7.  Gift Cards! I love Bath and Body Works, Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart. I shop at those places regularly so I could really use them.

8.  Toys and or treats for my kitties. :D

9.  I know this one's probably a long shot, but an agent or editor to look at my writing. I will be finished with my original novel soon and I would like the chance to pitch it to a professional.

10.  Donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They enabled me to make a wish when I was growing up that meant the world to me. I really would like to be able to return the favor and make another child's dream come true. The amount doesn't matter, every little bit helps those kids.

1, 4 and 5 done.

The stamps aren't your brand, but I hope you'll like them.
I will definitely be sending you a card, but I'm working on getting a few other things together.
I can send mail, something random (I'm being seriously random this year, someone even ended up with a happy birthday card, hmmm). I'm also friending you because I love random LJ friends and meeting new people.
Yay!!!! I like new friends. :D And I like mail. :D I'm hoping I'll get my mailbox stuffed this year. :D
Friending you! I'm also a writer, and I love having new people who understand the writing addiction and all that goes with it.

*bounces off to do so*
Yay!! Writers are a special group of awesome. :D Have you been participating in NaNoWriMo?

Also, I adore your icon. That's awesome! :D
Oh awesome!!

Small world!

I really haven't forgotten you guys, I promise! Just been super busy with my own writing, illnesses, and the holidays. I'll be a better comm maintainer once things calm down a bit. :D
Well, I am working on number 1 for sure. I hope you don't mind magazine clippings. :)
