This is gonna be strange birthday as my hubby, Andy, and I will be celebrating our shared October birthdays away from home. Plus it’s my last birthday in my twenties… waaaaah!
Just forewarning you, this is the most geeked out birthday wish list yet! This year it’s all about the work tools and fun “girl-boss” apparel, feeding my Disney fan girl side, with a large splash of books (but even those have work related and Disney snuck in!)
Disclaimer: making these yearly birthday lists has just been for fun but now that my friends and family have gotten used to them, I can’t just stop releasing them. Right….? Plus they’re kinda fun to make, it’s like window shopping but online.
1. Gold Vintage Scissors
This is a random one to start this list off, but I’ve been looking for some small gold scissors to use in my greeting card photos in my shop and finally found a small pair that doesn’t have a crane on it (since birds just aren’t my favorites!).
This handy little tool is such a neat idea… with little windows to aide in addressing envelopes!
3-14. New Books
Kindle Books: It took me awhile to go the e-book route, but I am so glad I finally did! The convenience of it just on these road trips alone have made it so worth it. These books have been hanging out on my Amazon Wish List just waiting to be devoured!
3. #GirlBoss | 4. Creativity Inc. | 5. Americanah | 6. All the Light We Cannot See | 7. A Northern Light | 8. The Goldfinch | 9. Yes Please
Printed Books: There’s certain books that just need that tangible feeling…
10. Hand Lettering Ledger | 11. DIY Type | 12. The Art of Disney Golden Books | 13. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland | 14. The Hidden Art of Disney’s Golden Age
15. Peter and Wendy Kiss Necklace
I love this necklace! It’s too adorable! Love the wood acorn and the bronze thimble and that it’s like the play with the acorn. Love it!
16. walt before mickey
I’ve been following this project for sometime and its finally available for preorder! Whoo!
17. It’s Mailing Date tote
This bag is far too perfect. I love love LOVE it.
18. maker and Dreamer Shirt
After finding the Mailing Day tote, from the same shop I found this Maker and Dreamer top. Adorable!
19. Ampersand Tank
Not too long ago I started following Cake for Breakfast on Instagram. I loved following along with her wedding and then her office tour… and of course her collection of ampersand tanks and tees in her shop!
20. Wood Poster Hanger
Love these vintage like poster hangers and I love how easy it is to trade out work. Hope to use it to update some shop photos too!
21. Acacia Wood Cake Stand
It’s been really hard to find a cake stand that matches our house… for the one or two times I’ve needed one, I was quite excited to find this guy at Target!
22. Naptime Diaries Advent Calendar and Devotional
I released my birthday list right before discovering Naptime Diaries’ Advent Calendar last year. My favorite lettering artist, Lindsay Letters, created the lettering for it last year and AGAIN this year. Yay! This advent calendar is paired with a devotional for the month of December. Such a neat idea.
23. Jenny Rijke Ceramics
Jenny Rijke ordered a logo stamp from me a few months ago and I just fell in love with her clean yet textured style of pottery. I just had to include something from her shop on my list, but it was hard to choose!
24. Jerry Seinfeld Tickets
Too bad Jerry will be in L.A. the weekend of my birthday this year… too bad because I’m not in California! So maybe next season 🙂
25. Disneyland Entrance Plaque
This is so perfect for my Disneyland room. So so perfect.
26. ”Partners” Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse Statue
And what’s more even more perfect is this Partners statue.
27. Disneyland Pass
This is happening. For reals. Good timing since the passes just went up in price again though! It’ll totally be worth it though!! Yay!
28. Walt Disney World
10 years ago I stepped foot in one of Walt Disney’s last projects, Walt Disney World. And I am so thankful that to end this giant road trip, I get to go back but this time with my husband in tow!
Thanks Mama for already crossing this one of my list! Eeeek!
29. Chevy Equionox
For the last 3 years, this car has been on my list. Two years ago we ended up buying a truck, and last year a new smoker for catering, and this year another new truck… in other words: BBQ, BBQ, BBQ! Maybe next year. 🙂
Happy Birthday to Me!
Another year, another candle on the cake, another list of wishes!
