Birthday Wish List

My birthday is vast approaching in a few weeks and I am already starting putting together my ultimate birthday list.   My dear sweet hubs isn't the best at going hunting for gifts.. if I didn't give him a list I think I would end up getting a big bundle of bulk socks or maybe a new toaster.  I know he means well but why not give him a little help. :)
Aren't these the cutest shoes ever? I am normally more of a converse girl but I found them a few weeks ago and I can't stop thinking about them.  I am a sucker for houndstooth.
I finally decided which instant camera I want to purchase.  After must thought and consideration I finally picked the Instax 50s.  I am so excited for this one and I can not wait to get my hands on it!
I go through a ton of journals through out the year and I really want to make my own.  So what do I need to make my journals? a book binder? what else! They started selling these at the paper store in my town and I think I might need this too!  If I get one of these for my birthday- I promise I will make a couple and do a fun giveaway.
This is Japanese decorative tape- I wish I would have brought home more art supplies while traveling through Asia a few months ago.. but a girls suitcase can only hold so much. Isn't this cute bears and cupcakes!
I think I need to this little clip for my birthday get together. :) I am so loving this mustard color.

The only thing I don't like about birthdays is the getting older part- when do we get to go in reverse?  I think this is a pretty good list :) .

What a lovely B-day wish-list list, an eclectic mix of useful and fun presents! I love surprises, but I'm a firm supporter of the approach "make clear what you really like"...

My husband is the same way when it comes to gift giving. If he doest get a list, I'll get something like a dvd. boo.

Love the camera choice! Those Toms are awesome too!

Anya Zhovmiruk said...

What a fun wish list! I always make one too :) And I like the Toms... I might have to get a pair now! I always thought they were ugly when they were just plain colors but now that they have prints...

I've never seen a book binder like that! crazy. I bind books by hand, and it really is so rewarding. I want to check that contraption out though!

Danielle said...

My birthday is soon as well! I wouldn't mind having everything on your list ;)

Jessi said...

Love the bow!

~BB~ said...

those Toms are beautiful!! Such a fun list - I may steal a few of these ideas for my own b-day wish-list :). I'm especially loving the book binding tool - too cool!

Katie said...

I'm a big believer in making lists too ;) I love the hair bow and instant camera! xo

Kristin said...

Those Toms are on my fall list too, I love the pair I have now, so much more comfy then my cons. I can't make lists for Randy - he wants stuff to be a surprise, so if I drop a hint about something it's a guaranteed not getting it.

Ajax said...

I vote for reverse birthdays starting now!

randomcreative said...

I have to be pretty specific with my husband when it comes to gift ideas, too. Nice picks! I hope that you get some of them.

What day is your birthday? Mine is September 17th! If we had the same birthday, how exciting that would beeee !!!!!!!! But even if it's not the same, I hope you get all these wonderful birthday presents! I adore the little bow, and the bookbinder looks so awesome! I didn't know those exist! I want to get one for my haiku book! ;)

How cute! My birthday is fast approaching as well! August 27th to be exact.

I actually have been wanting to get in touch with you . . . my hubby and I are thinking of going to Portland for our anniversary next month and I was hoping you could give me some suggestions on where to go! You're the only really Portlander I (sorta) know! We love to eat really good food and I love a good craft shop. I'd love your advice if you have time! Feel free to email me or just hit me up on the blog. amyloustokke@gmail.com

Thanks! And Happy Birthday!

Great list ... I would go for the camera and the book binder. Hope you have a wonderful day when it arrives ... and, actually, it is not that bad getting older and can be quite 'freeing'.
