My Wish List  
I know this usually comes with a meme. but I decided to do something short and sweet. I'm not expecting much. I'm just hoping to have a good Christmas this year. PM me for the address please.

1.) fanfic with Hermione as the centric character. Ask me for someone to pair her with because I've been expanding my pairings lately when it comes to her.

2.) A Journal Jar. You guys know I'm a journal writer so having a journal jar filled with different things that can spark an entry or two for my journals would be awesome. It can be filled with anything...random pictures, quotes, questions, one word prompts (i like writing stories), and just anything.

3.) Show the people you care about how much you love them.

4.) surprise me. Whether its a letter, a card, or whatever, sometimes getting something random in the mail is awesome. I hardly get mail.

5.) Coloring books for my nieces and nephew. Nieces love anything Disney princess, Monster High, and Tinkerbell. My nephew likes Ben 10, Transformers and Power Rangers. I'm babysitting them again and I want something that can keep them entertained.

6.) Pencils. I use pencils a lot for writing.

7.) give someone who is having a bad day a big hug.

Have you seen the Coloring Pages site? (http://www.coloring-book.info/coloring/) They have all kinds of coloring pages in pretty much all the categories you wanted, and it is all free :)

Thank you! That's perfect! I was looking for something that had every cartoon movie or show out there. This is awesome! Thank you!

I don't know how much shipping would cost but would you be interested in swapping journal jars? I've wanted one ever since I found out about them but the idea of making myself one seems (to me at least) to defeat the purpose in a sense since you already know what prompts are in it.

Let me know! :D
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 17th, 2012 04:14 am (UTC)
Sure! I would love to do that. I was thinking the same thing because I want to make one so badly but it does seem to take the fun in it when you know what's in it.

Yay! I'll get started looking for a jar right away! Well, once I reach my NaNo quota for tomorrow so I'm a day ahead which is just 700 words away :D
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 17th, 2012 04:29 am (UTC)
:D Awesome! You don't mind if I write some of the stuff out do you? My printer doesn't have much ink and I actually prefer writing words out.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 17th, 2012 04:51 am (UTC)
Nope, that's cool! I might write some stuff out too, give it a little more personal flare :)

And I'm gonna look through my vast collection of pictures as well as my mom's and see about putting in some pictures we've taken over the years along with some free stock pics I've collected. :D

Do you have any preferences for the jar? Like a twist on lid or the wire bail kind or anything? Personally I don't but I just wanted to check in case you did.
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 17th, 2012 04:55 am (UTC)
Nope. No preferences on jars. I do ask that if you make a label and only if to put Ria's Journal Jar. Other than that, I'm good with whatever. How about you?

On pictures, I may just clip some things from magazines, newspapers and maybe some pictures I took if you don't mind. It sucks not having ink for my printer.

Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 17th, 2012 04:58 am (UTC)
Oooh labels, I wasn't even thinking of that! lol If you do one, put Christine's Journal Jar for mine. That's the only preference I can think of :D

Yeah, I totally get that. The only reason I stay stocked up on ink for mine is because I print pictures for my mom to put in her albums sometimes instead of her always going to the store to print them on those photo machines.
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 17th, 2012 05:01 am (UTC)
Okay. Cool. Any favorite colors?

Hmm, I may have to start doing that then. Ink just really expensive nowadays.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 17th, 2012 05:09 am (UTC)
I like pastel pinks, purples and blues. You?

Yeah, to me it's really the way to go. You can get some really good deals at Staples on ink and photo paper sometimes - same with Amazon - and if you return your empty ink cartridges to Staples, that can help too :)
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 17th, 2012 05:13 am (UTC)
blues and greens.

I'll have to start looking at then.

I'm really excited about this. I might not decorate it much but I'll make the jar simple but pretty. Is it okay if I use some green in with the colors you like?
Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 17th, 2012 05:15 am (UTC)
Me too!

And absolutely, that's fine :D

I'm really excited too, it's gonna be so much fun!!!! :D

And I am using way too many smilies and exclamation points haha

You're excited!!!! I am too!! I've been wanting one of these for so long! Its fun to actually exchange one with someone! :DD
Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 17th, 2012 05:28 am (UTC)
Same! It feels like forever that I've wanted one, but at the same time, when it comes to making up wish lists I never remember to add it because whenever I'm trying to come up with stuff I really want, my brain goes blank. Which then results in me using wish lists I've posted on LJ in previous years and looking through stuff in my completely unorganized Amazon wish list XD
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 17th, 2012 05:32 am (UTC)
Same here. I really don't know what to think of when it comes to those things. But journal jar has been sticking out in my mind lately. That and pencils since i seem to go through a lot of them. I used to ask for journals but I got a whole bunch for my birthday so I need to start writing some more soon.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 17th, 2012 05:38 am (UTC)
Haha yeah, I have a ton of notebooks and journals I've never written in - or wrote in for a few pages at most and then stopped. The notebook I started writing my non-NaNo novel in back in March I've had for at least 12 years. I know this because it's a Mead Five Star notebook with a page of calendars for 1998, 1998 and 2000 in the front XD
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 18th, 2012 02:08 am (UTC)
that's cool. I have a lot of notebooks too. I use them most for fanfction than anything. I'm really excited about this journal jar exchange. If you like we should do this every year. That way we don't have to always fill one ourselves. But that's up to you.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on November 18th, 2012 02:33 am (UTC)
Oooh that'd be cool! We could send like little refill packs :D
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on November 18th, 2012 02:40 am (UTC)
Yep. We just keep the jars and send each other refill prompts that way. its always filled up. :D

Journal Jar Update!
Just wanted to let you know I have all the prompts written out and have gotten about halfway through folding them but between the fact that I used cardstock and not regular paper and the way I folded them, not all of them are going to fit in the jar. What doesn't fit of the regular prompts I'll be putting in a plastic bag so whenever you run low you can refill it and the photo prompts I'll be putting in an envelope for you to take out whenever you want something more than just a word or phrase. I figured that's the easiest way for me to do it so it'll still last you the whole year :)

Re: Journal Jar Update!
Www. thank you. I hope you like yours.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on December 10th, 2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
I'm sure I'll love it! I just go overboard with crafts sometimes because they're so relaxing for me XD
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on December 10th, 2012 11:13 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
Let me know when you get it.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on December 11th, 2012 01:20 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
I actually got it yesterday, after I made my last comment, but I'm waiting to open it until I send out yours - got an idea for a quick ficlet last night to go with your card so it'll go out tomorrow :)
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on December 15th, 2012 07:45 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
:D I was curious. Should we wait until Christmas to open them? I think it would be more fun if we did it that way.
Christine D.snowflakie06 on December 15th, 2012 09:06 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
Sure! And I still haven't been able to get yours to the post office because of my parents' schedules but since I know they're both available on Tuesday, that's when I'm shooting for now. Which also gives me time to make the ficlet even prettier in terms of paper and my handwriting and draw a little something to go with it :D
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on December 15th, 2012 09:14 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
Awww thank you. Did you read my letter?
Christine D.snowflakie06 on December 15th, 2012 10:19 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
You're welcome! I don't really have anyone (excluding my parents) to give a Christmas present to this year so I'm kinda going all out for it - not to mention handmade stuff is awesome haha

Not yet, no, I was going to save it for when I opened the journal jar unless you want me to open it sooner?
littleriri1148littleriri1148 on December 15th, 2012 10:37 pm (UTC)
Re: Journal Jar Update!
no that sounds cool. Opening it at the same time as the journal jar. :D

Re: Journal Jar Update!
