Postby katgyrl » Sun Oct 12, 2014 10:34 pm

Yay! I'm totally in!

Lol, I wrote out all my wishlist a while back and then my computer froze so I lost it all. :evil:

Katgyrl's wishlist

Holiday:
I celebrate a traditional religious Christmas, we also do Santa and all that too. :) I admire all the holidays this time of year so if you celebrate a different on I would love to have my box themed with that. I do love wintery stuff too, especially reindeer and penguins and anything in a santa hat.

Food/candy: I am allergic to gluten, so nothing with wheat, barley, rye, malt, or oats (unless specified gluten free oats) please. I do love pretty much anything chocolate, especially dark chocolate. I also love fruity candies, like melon rings, starbursts, and mamba. I also love peanut or peanut butter m&ms, candy canes, hot chocolate, apple cider, chamomile tea. There are some really yummy gluten free goodies too, chocolate covered pretzels by Glutino, Lemon wafers by Glutino, and Pamela's Pecan Shortbread cookies are SOOOO yummy (and gluten free)!

Other allergies: not really any non-food allergies. If you get me anything scented I like christmasy-scented stuff (cinnamon especially). Coconut and lime scented stuff is one of my favorites (or pretty much anything tropical for that matter).

COLLECTIONS & INTERESTS:

LPS Wishlist: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=5201

MLP wishlist: http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,291 ... #msg117189

Doll wishlist:http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,553.msg19336.html#msg19336

I would customs of any kind, LPS, MLP, handmade doll clothes, etc, or any kind of handmade item. If my partner makes me Barbie (Monster High) sized Christmas treats I would totally be tickled.

Other collections/interests: reusable shopping totes (cute ones! ;) ), sewing buttons, stickers, bits of small/thin lace or ribbon or trim (I use it for doll clothing), Barbie sized buttons/buckles/other notions.

I do have an American Girl Christmas tree from my childhood I still set up every year, I would love to get teeny tiny ornaments to put on it, especially if they're handmade or LPS related. I would also love getting a regular sized ornament for my real Christmas tree, especially if handmade or special to the sender.

Favorites:

Animals: cats, big and small. Favorite animal of all time is a jaguar. I also love pretty much any other animal, gerbils, dogs, parakeets, horses, guinea pigs...

Colors: anything bright and cheerful

LPS: the Desert Parakeet, because he was my first set; the Baby Zebra, because I lost her for a long time and then found her again; and the Poof n' Pretty Skunk, because she was my most played with pet as a child; the jogging gerbils, because I grew up with (and still always have) real gerbils.


I'm really pretty easy to please, I just love receiving a box that someone else has put together just for me and appreciate the thought no matter what the contents. :) It's always fun to see what someone else picks out for you.

Twincheckers' Wishlist

Holiday:
Christmas... non religious... winter theme is okay too.

Food/candy: Anything sweet. No allergies but I'm not a fan of nuts in candy. STILL hunting for the fabled Red Velvet "twinkie" if you live in the Southern US.

Other allergies: no food allergies. My skin is sensitive so best to stay away from lotions and such. Makeup is okay, lip gloss is okay too.

COLLECTIONS & INTERESTS:

LPS Wishlist:
viewtopic.php?f=44&t=5138&p=30667#p30667

I have a few specific baity pieces on my list but any baity pieces are welcome too.

Other things I collect:
90s Barbie, In My Pocket, Lisa Frank (Max Splash, Dancing Dolphins are my favs), Skydancers

Other interests:
-Any animal: especially dogs (especially Cavaliers like my babies in my pic). Love whales and dolphins too.
-Reading: I love anything history related but any books are welcome.
-Geeky Stuff: World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek TNG, Star Wars.
-Disney: NEMO!! Cheshire cat, Bambi
-Crafts: especially scrapbooking and restoring my ever growing toy collection. :)

Misc:
-I have to wear costume jewelry for work now so I'm always hunting for necklaces and earrings. I'm short so long necklaces don't work well for me and nothing too big and flashy or I look like I'm a kid playing dress up. I'm not picky so anything you find would be put to good use.
-I'd love to try anything unique to your area or culture.

Its so hard to believe that we are entering this time of year. Time flies!

Holiday: I celebrate Christmas. I'm a big fan of all the typical holiday things- red, green, trees, santa, snowmen, reindeer, etc. Everything wintertime is ok as well. And if there is a different holiday that you celebrate I'm ok with that as well.

Food/candy: I like chocolate (no nuts) and most sweets. I love christmas candies like those gold coins and holiday type things. I would also be a fan of home made items if you happen to bake or make anything. But I'm not really picky- No allergies or anything

My favorite thing to receive is customs. They don't even have to even be good ones! (although all the ones I have received have been excellent!). Even if they are LPS inspired ornaments or pictures or whatever your talent is. Last year I received these awesome LPS ornaments that were created using images of LPS birds. Very cool.

But if customs aren't your thing- no worries!

In addition to LPS… I like other animal related items, especially miniature. My favorite animals are birds and turtles. I also plan on getting a pug and french bulldog after graduation; so items associated with either of those mushy faces is great. :lol: And things that are nature related such as rocks, crystals, feathers etc. I'm also a fan of most things vintage such as vintage holiday decorations and things like that. Ornaments are good too or cool bracelets. Or anything unique to your area. Really just whatever you think is fun :D

Postby Waylah » Fri Oct 17, 2014 6:56 pm

Wow, has it been a year already?
Can't wait to pack another box!

Holiday: I'm not religious but I would love any theme! It's summer here, but a winter themed box is great too, if it's winter where you're from. So basically, any theme, any season! :D

Wishlist/Interests:
- I love miniature things, all animals, science, cute things, pretty things, and anything traditional or native to where you're from.
- I really like baby animals, pretty insects, and uncommon mammals, especially if they are native to where you're from.
- If you're an arty creative type, any kind of thing you create would be lovely.
- If you make customs, that would be awesome! Particularly all those ideas that made you say "I wish Kenner had made a set with [insert animal they didn't make here]".
- My LPS wishlist is here: http://www.vintagelpsforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=5339 but I understand that they are mostly hard to find pieces (except maybe the boxes, which I will list soon), so if you want an alternative specific toy to look for, I really like Sylvanian Families, and I don't have any!

Food:
I'm not allergic to anything but I'm vegetarian, so I don't eat jelly candies which contain gelatine. So for example, I don't eat jelly beans, gummy bears, nor marshmallows. But chocolate, caramel, and hard candies are great!
NOTE:Australia has really tough customs laws, so if including anything edible, only completely sealed store bought goodies, no homemade treats, sadly!
Also, no shells, wood, pine cones, feathers, dried flowers; any kind of natural stuff like that won't make it through customs, unless it is completely inert, like a rock or a fossil. I can send them but I can't receive them!
***Open for trade!*** looking for: 1993 case collar, mail-order puppies basket handle, and boxes and back cards

Since some of our members are from countries that have already had winter, to make it a little more inclusive I have changed it to a seasonal/holiday theme instead. Feel free to change your season if you would like.

I've been working on a handmade piece for my partner yesterday and today! My baby's teething so he's not napping as well as usual which makes for very short productive times. :S Poor guy is getting two at once, and I forgot to get teething pills! -.- The piece is almost done though!
