Dear Santa…

What do I want for Christmas? To be honest, not a lot. I am surrounded by love and laughter, a great family, awesome friends, space and time in which to be creative, the chance to be at home with my babies, and help out at school and preschool. When I was tagged to list five things I wish for this Christmas, I struggled to come up with anything. Or at least anything realistic – I’m not so virtuous that I don’t have daydreams of how I’d blow a good chunk of a lotto win…


1a. Nikon D4 body only $6850
1b. Nikkor 35mm 1.4G lens $1825
2. Nikon 1 J2 twin lens kit $796.95US
3. Janome Horizon MC7700 $3499
4a. Tiffany Victoria ring $15,600
4b. Tiffany Enchant Scroll band ring $11,800
4c. Tiffany Metro ring $2500
5. A trip to Paris. Approx $2300 economy, but since I’m dreaming, let’s go business. $9776. Each.

And lest my daydream window shopping give my husband a heart attack, rest assured this isn’t really my Christmas list! Somehow I don’t think Santa is going to cough up the cash for a $15,600 Tiffany ring. And so while I was on a window-shopping roll, I also made a much more realistic Christmas wish list.

1. Copic 25th Anniversary Limited Edition set on sale for $225 (reduced from $285)
2. Winsor & Newton Oil Paint box set $199.95
3. Derwent Artist’s Pencils (Box Set of 72) on sale for $99.95 (reduced from $189.50)
4. Polaroid 300 camera $77
5. Epiphanie Belle bag in teal $164.99US

Here’s hoping I made it on Santa’s nice list!!

And in the spirit of the game, I’m going to pass the baton on, and ask Car, Bee, Alley Cat, Skip and AJ what they wish for this Christmas.

    Thanks for that – I feel better about the $550 bike I *suggested* Simon buy for me *dragged him to all the bike shops in Noosa till I found the perfect one and then said ‘cough up, big fella*.
