This was classychica's idea! Thx CC!

Please post below 5 wild, outrageous or impossible things you would like Santa to bring you for Christmas this year.

You will then send your partner one of those 5 things --- interpreted any way you like! For example, I could ask for a 25 carat diamond ring --- and my partner could make me a beaded bracelet (which is round like a ring) using clear glass beads ( which simulate diamonds). Or I could ask for a date with Sean Connery --- and my partner could write me a long letter from Sean describing our dream date.

You cannot go out and buy anything for this swap - whatever "gift" you send must be created by you from whatever you already have at home. You can use any medium, any technique, any material, any tool, that you like. Be creative!

Please wrap the "gift" nicely and include a Christmas card (purchased is fine) explaining which thing on their list it represents (especially if it is not really obvious!).

I am making the send by date early so that international parcels arrive in time for Christmas.

The rules:

  1. This is international. Sorry, no newbies.
  2. You must have a fully completed profile (not just a few words).
    3.You must have a rating of at least 4.7, with no more than one no send in the last 6 months.
    4.You must have completed and been rated for at least five substantial swaps.
  3. You must have posted below your list of 5 items.

I ban after sign up but please pm me if you have any concerns or questions.

Dear Santa,

I would REALLY like for Christmas:

*Fresh cotton bed linen every day, and someone to wash and iron them.

*A chance to go to Australia and meet up with an old school friend I haven't seen for 43 years.

*A heated purpose built garden room ,where I could craft to my heart's content and watch the garden at the same time.

*A good looking gardener (Johnny Depp would do, or David Essex as he was 30 years ago).

*My husband to get over his fear of flying so we could visit all those wonderful places outside the UK.

Thank you Santa, I've been really good this year and promise to be even better next year.

Dear Father Christmas (as we old-fashioned souls have it!),

I've worked hard and been REALLY good this year... no, really, I say it every year but this year I've REALLY been good!

For Christmas I would like: - To come into a fortune (any legal way would be great) - my true love to propose - a neverending box of craft supplies - an ecologically friendly house complete with library, conservatory, MASSIVE kitchen and a well-lit studio. and a verandah. - a crystal ball which doubles as a time machine

I promise I'll leave a beer, a meat pie, a pack of tim tams and some carrots out for you on Christmas Eve.


MissPrincess 10/26/2007 #

Dear Santa,

I have been very good this year and would like the following items plzzzzzzzzzzz:

  1. A mansion with a bunch of land and an inground swimming pool in my bedroom and one in another room for everyone else to use! Of course my 3 boys would move in with their families when they have them, they are only 20, 16 and 15 right now, so we could all be together when we want to of course!

  2. A run through my local craft store, Hobby Lobby! Here's how it would go. I would have 5 whole minutes to run through the store and EVERYTHING I got into a shopping cart and over the "finish line" before the five minutes is up I get to keep! Oh, and I get to use as many shopping carts as I want!

  3. To find out that I am related to Julia Roberts! I love her! (And Richard Gere too for that matter)

  4. Time. Time to do fun things, not chores. Crafting, reading, anything paper crafting related.

  5. A movie theater in my house! Full screen, projector, cinema seating, popcorn machine, yep, I want it all!

Thanks Santa!

Dearest, most handsome, kind, wonderful Santa,

This year for Christmas, I have a few greedy, self serving wishes...

I would love to be a size 4 and then stay that size forever!

I want abs, arms and buns of steel!

I would love to have the most beautiful brown hair that compliments my skin color and stays that way forever and I never have to go in for touch ups!

I want to have an impressive wardrobe!

I want all mirrors to tell me that I am the fairest of them all :)

Thanks, Mr. Santa, my most favorite Claus in the World!!!

kassrose 10/29/2007 #

I would like...

  • An engagement ring from Tiffany's
  • To graduate college tomorrow and never have to go to school again
  • To make alot of money when I do graduate college (rather than a teacher's salary)
  • A cute little house in Portland, Oregon
  • A romantic trip to Italy
  • This is not an outlandish wish, but I really REALLY want a bottle cap magnet/shrine kit. I guess it's kind of outrageous since I can't get anyone to send it to me :)


beawhiz 10/30/2007 #

Dear Santa,

I would like a cure for cancer, to (finally) meet my soul mate, to be fluent in about 15 different languages, to be able to travel the world, and unlimited air travel so I can visit all my family whenever I want.

Thank you Santa! Beatrice

webdreamy 10/31/2007 #

dear santa (I am late, I'm sorry)

I would like: An endless library full of too many good books to read in a lifetime, a way to relax after a hard day at school, KIT from knightrider, a vacation to anywhere but here, happiness (without medication-- self prescribed or otherwise)

boatingbelle 11/ 8/2007 #

bf0932, your Super Santa package is in the post from UK

TerryF 11/10/2007 #

kassrose, your swap is on its way. Please be patient - mail from Canada can be excrutiatingly slow! Thx. T.

TerryF 11/15/2007 #

ALL SWAPPERS: If you have not received your swap by Dec. 19 (or even earlier if it becomes obvious that your partner is a problem child), please let me know. Thx! Terry

TerryF 12/ 4/2007 #

I have pmd beawhiz and webdreamy today as they haven't marked their swaps as sent yet. Hopefully it is just an oversight on their part and the swaps are on their way! If not, their partners will be taken care of.

TerryF 12/27/2007 #

beawhiz has sent and been rated for her swap.

That leaves only webdreamy who flaked (but only on me) so all's well that ends well!
