It's been about six months since I last posted, so you know what that means, right? Christmas list time! Anyone tired of this yet? I can just send out a big link-y email instead, but I do like looking at all the pictures together.
Usually I ask for a bunch of stuff to decorate the house, but the house is pretty full now and I have enough knicknacks. I'm still wearing some of the same clothes I had in college, so it is probably time to update my wardrobe instead. I'm mostly looking at accessories since clothes shopping is hard enough in the actual store and you can't really tell if something online is going to make your butt look good.
This list-making endeavor has already frustrated me since a few of the items have sold out since I looked at them last week. For example, I was searching for a ring for my main gift, something dainty but kind of edgy and cool. I had seen this first one before but thought it was too expensive for what was basically a gold ring. I found it for about $90 cheaper on one site. Guess what happened when I checked it today?
Bam! Sold out.
"No problem," I thought. "I picked a back-up ring because I'm smart like that."
Sold out. Shit! Really?
Yeah, so my main gift is TBA. I'm still looking for that elusive dainty but cool ring that doesn't cost too much.
I can't get enough of oversize black and white checks.
I love that this scarf is kind of ruffly and feminine, but is also an olive-y, mustard-y color, which totally appeals to the tomboy in me.
My phone always slips out of the pocket inside my purse, so this should protect my little friend. BFF. Update: Here's a link to the Etsy store that you can find it just in case the link doesn't work. They sell pretty fast but she makes a lot of them. The item is called "iPhone case - Grey wool felt and brown leather."
Ah, both dainty and cool. I especially love the first one, which, if you ask my husband, I seriously need to get over my teardrop-shape obsession.
Craaaap, I just lost all the progress I made since my last save since my computer up and died unexpectedly. I think I'll skip the little descriptions and just list them out. Make-up for my pasty face, a few office items, and a couple items for my (hopefully) future small home business.
To keep on my desk for sharpening charcoal pencils (or I might need to cut a bitch.)
Okay, maybe I'll put descriptions for the home business supplies. They look a little ridiculous on their own.
A Mac accounting/invoicing program. Quicken for Macs is a joke and Quickbooks is too expensive. This looks like a good program for what I'll need it for.
Self-explanatory. I like the 55 lb. capacity for the price.
Custom stamp kit $30
For making business cards like this. I already have the manila shipping tags.
I want to use this to make packages look a little nicer. 2 lbs. and 3400 yards of twine. I'll be passing this on to my grandchildren.
