Holiday Wishes.. 2009

Seasons Greetings all!!

My name is Kelli.. I'm in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario Canada.. I am currently on disability trying to cope with multiple medical issues, incl CFS, FMS, Endo, etc..) Some days are easier than others, but getting something in the mailbox other than the bills would definitely brighten a day!
I've been doing this since '04.. This is a great community.. Some years I participate more than others.. I already have notes made for 70-some wishes and I hope those get send a few more :)

My Wish List

  1. Snail mail.. Be it a letter, post card, a seasonal card (I do the Christmas thing), art work, or something creative.. I'd especially like stuff from from across the world, and I live in Canada
  2. Coins.. I know there are collector coins in Canada and the States, so those would be great, especially the recent Canadian ones or any American ones, plus any foreign (non-Canadian) currency, preferably coinage..
  3. Plushies.. any type of stuffed toy.. Yes, for me - I am addicted.. Even one of those little McDonald's TY plush toys if gently used or still in the bag..
  4. Memberships.. to the Endometriosis Association, and/or the National Fibromyalgia Association preferably the 'online membership'
  5. Donations to the Endometriosis Association, FMS Canada, and/or the National Fibromyalgia Association .. Or other charity of your choice..
  6. Cookie recipes.. I do cookies for some of my gifts every year & try to mix it up, so I was hoping for some good & preferably easy ones that I can make for Gifts. And Diabetic ones.. I have two people that are diabetic on my list.. esp Shortbread!
  7. Handmade Christmas Ornaments or decorations.. Over the years, I have made some for my tree.. and I am making some to go out as wishes.. I'd love to get some back. :) Or regionally/religiously ethnic ones would be cool too!
  8. Books.. from the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, or the third in Left Behind End of State series titled Necessary Evils by Neesa Hart.. from any sort of Christian or semi-christian novels.. & the Christina ones... (when I remember what the heck I mean by this, I'll let ya know! :)
  9. A grab bag.. A surprise of anything in my mailbox would be awesome!
  10. Click to help! Please add the animal rescue site link to your browser so you click everyday. Then click on the rest of the charities there helping the Rainforest, Literacy, Child Health, Breast Cancer, and Hunger.. You can also buy a gift or nine for some of the special people (four-legged or two) in your life this season, as each charity has its own store..

If you plan to grant a wish, pls comment below with the link to your own wish list :)
Thank you in advance to everyone for their consideration..

Remember ~ if you receive a gift, Say Thank You!!
And imo big items deserve a Personal Thank You.. do so after you receive the item so the sender knows it's been received..

I have been disappointed with the few thank yous I've received for gifts I sent, esp the DVD I sent to England a few years back.. So for those whose wish I am able to grant, esp anything more than a card within Canada or the US, I prefer a thank you to me directly or on my wish list, not in the thank you community.. :) How else do I know if you received it or not?!

Request about tags.. pls include your country & continent.. I dunno about others, but I search by country & for those over the pond, by continent. Also include, as listed, your wishes, like mine will include stuff like cards, coins, recipes, etc..

**Also keep an eye on your spam boxes, so far, I've had three wishes go awol via my spam filter..**

I will be keeping updates on my progress with Wishes on my own Journal :)

My Holiday Wishes
Cool.. Glad some ther eare people out there besides me who do it.. :)
I used to read the Left Behind Series, up until Book 5 or so. I read a bit of the later ones, just to see what they'd come up with. Pretty interesting stuff.
I will totally send you some snail mail! I love getting mail too, so this is awesome lol.
My Holiday Wishes
Awesome it is.. I love to get mail too.. :)

What's the link to your wish list?
Hi! I'll be sending you a card and some foreign coins.
I have your address from last year and was wondering if West Hill and Scarborough were the same? I've never heard Scarborough called that so just wondering before I mailed it out!
My Holiday Wishes
West HIll is a section of Scarborough,, Just like Don MIlls, Willowdale, The Beashes, Chinatown.. etc.. just not as well used or known :)
Kelli I just emailed you about the Canadian Guiding badges and would love to send you some stuff in return. I can send you a nice grab bag of stuff from the UK :) PS I have Fibromyalgia too.
I got it!

A fellow Fibromite?? My condolences, but it's nice to know I'm not alone.. :)
If you'd like a gigantic stocking, I can send you a handmade one that my mother and I made several years ago. I really have no place to hang it, and I'd love to send it to someone who likes giant stockings with an old Victorian-esque collage on it...

Sound like something you might like?
My Holiday Wishes
Um, how Gigantic is Gigantic?? 3 ft?? 6 ft?? While sounds very cool, I'd have to know the size before hand.
Hey. So, years ago, I got the 3 Left Behind movies on DVD. But they just sit on my shelf, I've never watched them.

Interested? If so, I could possibly throw in some random stuff to cover 1, 9, and even 2 or 3.
Holiday Wishes!!
I can send you a card back.. I'll check my DVD's see if I have anything I think you'd like.. I don't guarantee anything tho.. My Disney stuff is pretty much on vhs..
