A Crafter's Christmas List...

We celebrated the first of several Christmas gift exchanges yesterday.  You know you're a bit of a crazy crafter when you receive (and are RIDICULOUSLY excited about) these...

You see... a girl always needs a good set of working sharpies in her craft studio.  She just HAS to!  And mine were in dire need of replacement.  Sharpies come in handy ALL THE TIME!

And the cupcake punch?  Well... I've been lusting after this Martha Stewart punch ever since I first saw this post over at Meg's place.  I was just THRILLED about getting it!  Do you see how adorable it is?  How you can mix and match different colors of paper for the wrapper and the frosting?  Eek!

So with that mind, I figured I'd share with you a few of the other crafty things (both big and small!) on my Christmas list this year.  Now don't get me wrong -- I'm all about using things in my stash whenever possible -- but Christmas is a good excuse to stock up the stash, wouldn't you say?!

Since we were just talking about Martha, let's start with this...


Isn't it so beautiful and sparkly?!  I was giggling uncontrollably when Natasha over at Samster Mommy launched her 30 for $30 series featuring this very set earlier this month - thus giving us all even MORE justification to purchase $30 worth of glitter!  So funny!  I love it!

Of course I have a HUGE list of Stampin' Up! products that I long for.  Being a demonstrator, I'm able to see and hear about the newest products before they're even available to all of you.  Sooo exciting!  This set isn't new, but it's right up there on my wish list.  Soooo pretty! 



Am I a HUGE dork because I asked for these?...


Not these ones specifically - but pretty much any all all see-through totes and containers in any sizes.  They're the best for storing all my crafting supplies - I can see what's tucked away at all times!  PLUS, since my craft studio is in the basement and it can get a little moist down there, I know that everything is safely stored away.

I also asked for this...
                                    
I know, I know, dream on right?  But it would be SO sweet in my craft studio.  I love the little side table that swings out and the fact that the whole thing is on wheels!  Yeah yeah, dream on...

This would be SUPER handy.  It's three tiers for goodness' sake!  Would be such a space saver in my kitchen!

I could go on forever!  There are all kinds of goodies for crafting, sewing, and baking that would be WONDERFUL stocking stuffers!  Don't you agree?  So come on, spill.  What's on YOUR crafty Christmas list this year?!

Just stumbled upon your blog tonight...it's great! And...LOVE your crafty Christmas list. Merry Christmas!

Meg said...

Love the list.... I'm so happy you got the cupcake punch!

I totally lust after that glitter too. I think I've got a Michael's 40% coupon with that glitters name on it.

I have the three tier rack and love it-although I do wish it had a bit more room between each tier. I hope you get it, I'm sure with all the baking you do you could use it.

And that table... wow... I'll keep my fingers crossed that Santa put that one in his sleigh for you!

Jenn said...

Awesome gifts! I have the stackable cooling racks and they are a dream. You can do so many more cookies and still have space to mix and blend and make a mess! Hope Santa's good to you!
