Okay. That’s a total lie. But this is the 2013 Christmas list of things you should buy for the people you love.
Last year, I offered you my Christmas wishlist and I didn’t get ANYTHING from it, BRIAN. But I did get a Keurig. And it was wonderful. And just this morning I was obsessively organizing all of my K-cups like a good little OCD gal. So it all worked out in the end.
This year, I’m not putting out a Christmas list for myself…except for the toy dinosaurs.
Because there’s really not a lot that I need, and very little that I want, I thought it would be fun to offer a list of things that we can all appreciate. And that you should want too. Because the following items are awesome. Or I really like the person who makes them and am sharing their awesome with you. Or both. Obviously.
OKAY FINE. Aside from the dinosaurs… this list of gifts comes from people I know and love.
If you’re Brian, you’ve been redirected here because I don’t want you to see your Christmas present. Obviously.
Oh and on a side note, for those of you waiting patiently for a Christmas card from Brian and I…there’s been some sickness going around that has deterred us from a proper photoshoot, so they will be coming closer to Christmas time. That also means if you haven’t e-mailed me your address, you can still get a Christmas card (and possibly a surprise Scrabble ornament) from yours truly.
The Random and Ridiculous Christmas Wishlist
Because you know you want this stuff!
OK, this one isn’t for you. It’s for me. I really want a bunch of toy dinosaurs of varying sizes. Please don’t ask me why. I don’t want you to steal my brilliant idea. And I do have. A. Brilliant. Idea. Trust me on this one.

Random Gifts for Everyone!
I couldn’t have a wishlist post without sharing my own Zazzle store…where you can find silly things I say on tee shirts.
Do you have a small business online? Etsy? Zazzle? Deviant Art? Share it in the comments section!
What do you think, Blog Friends?
Well truthfully I don’t think I have any friends that would appreciate toy dynosaurs or hand painted wall art. I do occasionally buy something from Zazzle. I like their tee shirts designs and got one for a rockabilly concert. Lillian Connelly’s prints are cool too!
I love random Zazzle stuff. I made a mug for Brian last year. It was awesome. Also, I totally use to roll with a rockabilly crowd. Not that that should or would surprise you.
Thank you for sharing my art! I love that picture of you wearing my necklace. You are so cute! I am dieing to know what is going to happen with the dinosaurs. That word art is calling me. I am off to etsy. Also, that Zazzle shirt is going to make me giggle all day long. I think zazzle was invented for witty people like you.
I love to share your art! And I’m glad you liked my shirt!
I LOVE your wishlist. Had i known before that you wanted dinosaurs, I would have saved the 5 i JUST gave away to goodwill! (they were uber cute- but in a state of mania, i went through my studio and made one of 4 choices: Keep, Toss, LISTIA, Goodwill.)
I usually spend the better part of the year collecting things that would “go well together” in a piece of art (with people in mind). By christmas time, most of my presents are almost done… 🙂
I don’t have much of a wish list (however, i DO put up plenty of helpful hints on my FB page) 🙂
Aw man! Dinosaurs! LOL
Helpful hints are always good for our loved ones!
I have Brian’s mug and I can vouch for what a wonderful gift it would be for anyone on your list!
Yay! I’m glad you like it!
