    That is what I would like a new camera. My camera will be 4 in June. I would like to update my camera. Sometimes we do what we call a Hand Me Down Christmas.That is when someone gets something new and someone gets the used item. We have done this a few time.
    Our 26 &14 years old daughters both asked for a camera. The 26 years old is getting a new camera.
    Mom & the 14 years old is not.:{
    That is ok because I should be getting an imagine.:}

  • Lisa C

    A new camera would be wonderful. However, if money were no object, and I could get any gift I want, I would like to have an addition put on my house so I could have a craft room.

  • Debby

    I would love a flat screen tv not for me but for hubby for christmas. He has always been here for me, never complains about my habit oops I mean addiction of crafting. If I had the money that is what I would do and I would get a smaller one for our youngest son cause the tv he has the tube is going out.

  • Teresa B.

    Wow, what a wish? I wish my Hubby could retire and we would have no $$ problems. As most people now days need to work till they drop. This is the 3rd company he has worked for in 30 years and starting over gets depressing after a while. Bless his heart. He works so hard and doesn’t say anything about my crafting. You just never know anymore how long anyone will be able to go to work. Merry Christmas.

    • Christina

      I have the LG set — so now my “big” wish item is the pedestals to put them on! You don’t think about how many times you’ll be bending down to reach the wash . . . I hope you get, and love your set as much as I do! AND waiting for the dryer is a PERFECT time to craft, so I think you can fit this in as scrap-related, too. (-:

  • Karla

    I don’t really have a “big” item I wish for this Christmas …. at least not a “material” one. What I really wish for is that my Mom would get better. My Dad has been trying to get her back on track for about a year now. Seems all the docs think the solution to anything is medicine …. and didn’t look to see what else she is on. She’s almost back to normal, but she still has a way to go. My Dad has been getting the docs to slowly delete one medicine at a time ….. it’s rough to see your mom different than she’s ever been before. (I know this was long and probably makes no sense to anyone but me …. sorry!). I hope you get your new camera, Megan …. Sean—ummm, I mean Santa …. are you listening to Megan? LOL

  • Robin Gerot

    A week off from work so I can play in my craft room! It seems like there is never enough time to just sit down and create! I would enjoy every minute of it!

  • Jane

    A cruise! I would love to go on a cruise and be pampered. Waiters, spa treatments, exotic destinations and money to shop – ahhh. You never know what Santa will put under your tree Megan. Just keep dreaming and wishing. It’s free and who knows???

  • JulieT

    My big dream wish is a family trip to Disney. That’s all my little one talks about is ” when I see Mickey I am going to give him a big hug”. Oh well, we can wish upon a star can’t we!

  • Jennifer H

    My BIG wish item…well I don’t really have one, believe it or not. Are there things I would like? sure, don’t really need them though. But I am so blessed with a wonderful, caring, understanding husband, 2 great (sometimes frustrating) teenagers, and a warm home and a good paying job that I really am truly content. The only non-material thing I would like is more time to craft. I think everyone needs that balance between their hobby and their job, family life.
    Megan I hope Santa brings you your camera…it’s definitely a nice one! Thanks for always bringing us such a great website/blog and such inspiration.

    • Mary Dolese

      My big wish would be to hit the lotto! then my husband could retire early he works so hard., and to be able to help my children so they would have to work such long hours then they would be able to spend more time with there children life moves way to fast.
      Thanks for all you do, Mary

  • Brenda S

    My big wish is for a new Van. I have had my current one for 11 years. Megan, since you have been a good girl I am sure Santa will be very good to you.

  • Alejanddra

    My big wish item is either time off from work for a staycation or a trip to Brazil. I would also love love love the Pandora charm bracelet.

  • Cath

    I have stopped wishing for things over the last few years as I know we can not afford them. My darling oh and I have not had a Christmas present off each other for 5 years now. So my wish would be to be able to get him a new computer or phone as both of his are so old and not working as they should.

  • Deann

    My big wish is a new car. Mine is driving towards 13 years and it seems that I am paying more for repairs the last couple of years than I would be a car payment. i can’t afford a car payment right now (at least for 2.5 years) and my credit cards are showing it.

  • Donna Dial

    My big Dream wish would be an Alaska Cruisetour, something my hubby and I have talked about for several years but very expensive to do all we want to do and see. Maybe someday but definately not this year.
    Good luck with the camera! Ya never know Santa could be listening and if you have been a really good girl he just might surprise you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nancy Lee

    Now that I have already wished for a new SUV how about an RV to go with it so I can travel, take my pictures with the new camera I got this year and scrapbook like crazy. So in my old age I can set and look at all the places I went.

  • Trisha

    I would wish for a private Copic certified instructor to come in to my home and teach me (hands on) Copic coloring techniques. I live in the country, about 45 mins from the nearest scrapbook store, and no one offers this kind of class in our area. I am trying to teach myself, but, it is so difficult to do. Guess I can dream on. Hoping everyone a wonderful Thursday.

  • GrannyCharlotte

    I would really, really, really like to get my room additions finished. They have been in the process in excess of 5 years. We are paying as we go 🙂 The outside is mostly finished, but now we have to do all the inside things. Everyone will probably hear the scream when I can move into it 🙂 Merry Christmas everyone!!

  • Lynn Robinson

    My BIG wish item would be to have a craft room!!!! Right now, I have to use the dining room table so I can’t just leave everything out and come back to it later. It would be nice to be able to just close the door if I am working on a project and have everything were I left it.

  • marie sierra

    good morning’s hoping santa has heard about yur wish list and is going to put that camera under your tree!
    i would LOVE to be able to take my sweet husband to the nearest corvette dealer , drop him off and say: dont come home unless you are drivivng the corvette of your dreams!! he would die from happiness! that would be my big christmas item! this is so much fun megan!

  • Cindy Adkins

    I can’t say I really have a BIG Christmas wish this year. I’ve read some of the earlier posts, and I think I’ll have to agree with the one that said hitting the lottery so my husband could retire. He’s been so great “plugging” along at different jobs he’s really disliked over the years, providing a great home for our family…. it would be terrific if we could “hit it big” and finally retire so HE could relax and be pampered for awhile :-)!

  • Sheryl Smith

    A bright red shiny Mustang! Realistically, a laptop which I think Santa may be planning. He is very good at getting me things on my list, at least the ones that don’t cost $30-40!

  • Teresa Minor

    Santa Baby,
    Just slip a Cannon Rebel under the tree
    For me and Megan
    We’ve been awful good girls
    Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

  • facsmom

    I have actually asked for a camera so I can start taking pictures of my papercrafting projects. I also have on my big wish list a Cricut Expression. Nothing is OK but the fam likes to put both the big dreams and the real stuff on the list. I didn’t make out a list until the last few years. It is sort of the emerging/transformation that has taken place for me in the last few years.

  • Jeanne

    My big wish is for an iPad but like the camera you want, it is too expensive and I don’t expect to see it under my tree. Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  • JD

    My BIG Dream list… I have my eyes on a new Nikon DSLR camera, and I would love a new laptop and the Creative Memories digital program… but I don’t think I’ll be finding either of those under my tree this year. That’s perfectly okay with me though b/c this Christmas will be the best yet as it is my son’s first Christmas and he (and my hubby!) are the only presents I need this year. 🙂

    Happy Holidays!

  • Tiffany Brummitt

    I have a nice camera but would love to have a new wide angle lens for it for Christmas. This is so I can get more scenic views in my pictures.

  • Brenda L

    I guess I will always have wants, but I am very lucky and have what I feel is everything. lol Now that’s not to say there aren’t things that I want. I would love, love for my son’s not to have to be deployed anymore. I would love a Kindle Fire and one day I will have one. I would love the same camera you want Megan, the list could go on. lol So with that said, there really isn’t anything that I feel I really need this Christmas. My hubby and I have decided not to exchange gifts with each other this year because we just did a major remodel to our bathroom and it is beautiful. That was gift enough to me. My hubby gives me a gift everyday, what is that gift? I don’t have to work. I did work and loved every minute of it, then I got Lupus, RA and Fibromyalgia and that put an end to that. So I am very blessed, don’t want for anything for long. We have one child left at home and the other 5 are grown, we have grandchildren and that is where I get my joy at gift giving time. I love to give! So keeping my fingers crossed for you to get your camera Megan, you just never know what Santa has in his mind!! lol Merry Christmas!!!

    • Shari


      I too have Fibromyalgia do I can relate to Brenda. Although, I am doing much better with a new diet that I am on. I too don’t really wish anything for myself, except for maybe a more predicitable tomorrow so things can be planned. Never really know how I will feel. I have all I need so my only wish is for all those that listed things that they need or want would get them. May our soldiers come home soon and our families be home for the holidays and everyone get some much needed time off from life to recharge and gain the peace needed for our sanity. I still love the Christmas glow in my daughters eyes (she will be 17). She still loves Christmas and I still read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and the story of Jesus’ birth to her every Christmas Eve. I hope everyone has those types of memories and traditions. God Bless, Megan and Merry Christmas to you and your family. Shari

  • Susan Rude

    I would have to say I do not have any big wishes this year. I wanted a Nook and rumor has it that it is under the tree. My wish this past year was for my husband to get better and become his old self again. He is on disability and the doctors had him on so much medicines that he just was not himself. Happy to say my wish came true and I have my husband back. Hope everything works out for everyone else. God Bless you all, your all such amazing people.

  • Ruth

    I am just so thankful that my whole will be together this Christmas. In the Christmas past our son has been in either Iraq or Afghanistan and this year he’ll be home!!! PLT So I get my Christmas wish. I do have a secret wish that my husband and I could go on a vacation for about 4 or 5 days.

  • Diane

    My big wish for Christmas would have to be a Cricut Imagine and or an Ipad. But seriously doubt I will get either under the tree. I am just happy that all of the family will be together for Christmas from all over the Country and that we will be celebrating together. That is what Christmas is all about anyway.

    • Linda

      Frani, your Mom is watching over you. If I could have one wish it would be to spend one more Christmas with my parents both of whom passed many years ago.

  • KathyH

    Megan if you get that camera you will love love love it! I have the Nikon 5000 and received it 2 yrs. ago. Can I say I love love love it!!!!! I really want a laptap this year bcuz to update my machines ( Gypsy, Imagine and Expression) I have to carry them to another room….this can be difficult for me. I know what I am asking for is a tall order so mayb not but keeping fingers crossed.

  • Marilyn

    Cameras are a wonderful gift, hope Santa has you on his list! 😉

    I would love an external hard drive and I would also love a digital picture frame. Not sure what Santa is thinking, I guess I’ll have to make certain I am extra good! 😉

  • EM

    My big ticket item that I wish for Christmas is a trip somewhere warm. My Mom is dying of cancer and we have had so many funerals of her siblings and in-laws in the past year that I would welcome some time away from reality. I take mini vacations by scrapbooking at the diningroom table but somewhere warm with beaches and sunsets would really relax me.

  • Jill

    My big dream item this year would be a MacBook Pro. My laptop is almost 5 years old, the same age my brother’s was when it died. (I have the same model he did.) Mine is starting to have the problems his had for the last 6 months or so that it was functioning. Since I’m now in school full time again, and taking some courses online, I need a working computer. I didn’t even ask for one though.

  • Judi Farrell

    My dream wish is VERY selfish, so I feel a bit bad about adding it but, here goes….My dream wish would be for a new house!! Our house is very old—60 years old—and VERY small. My married daughter cannot visit with her husband because there is no place for them to stay in the house. Christmas’ are SOOOOO crowded, it almost ruins it. I want a house big enough for my daughter and her husband (and future grandkids too) to visit and stay, along with my other daughter and her future husband and son and his future family. I told you it was a bit selfish, but there is nothing like being able to spend time with your family and I want a place to do that in. 😀

  • Kristan(Crazy4Christ)

    well i think I have already bought eveything on my big wish list, so my present can’t be wrapped (well i guess you could wrap the paper work) but i would really like my divorce to go through fast and without any hickups(it’s been 3 long years (abusive marriage) and I just want to be free!! Thanks for the chance to win

  • Mary

    I just started researching camera and then I just stepped back from the search because I started to dream about cameras. Santa if you’re listen save me from a headach and bring me a nice camera.

  • Joan

    My Big wish would be an HP photo print the small one that you use just to print out photos and you can tuck it in your tote and take anywhere….I have one that is really old and isn’t compatible with my new HP camera I got last year so I can’t use it any more for photo printing… kids all went in together and got me the HP digital for my birthday… had just come out and I really wanted this brand and it wasn’t avail. in any stores just on QVC and I knew QVC was all sold out so I thought nothing more about it as my 10 yr old camera was still working, well turned out my daughter bought it on line and oh my I was surprised and this camera is awesome I love it….I’m a scrapper and over the years have taken thousands and thousand of pics and I’m not joking, my old one which was a Sony was 10 years old actually broke the day of my birthday when I was trying to take a picture….and I got kind of upset and my sweetie told me “don’t worry you can take it to the camera shop on Monday (as it was Saturday) and see if they can fix it… I settled down and we took off to go out to eat for my birthday….but little did I know that he had a surprise party all set at the restaurant….and it was all our kids and grandkids……and then when I got my camera….double wow…but like I mentioned the HP camera is small and has tons of features on it….and I’m lovin’ it I’ve had it for a year now and abosoluteley no complaints. Ok I know this was a long story…but you asked for it…tee hee….

  • Barb A.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm! My big wish……….would be for more time to craft. Since that’s not possible, I would settle for a Martha Stewart scoreboard. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  • Martha

    I would love to have a nice big, organized craft room that is ONLY for my crafting! All my stuff in one spot and a place to spread out would be wonderful.



  • Donna

    My BIG wish list item would also be a digital SLR camera. I have a film SLR and a point and shoot digital but would love a Canon digital SLR. My father got me into photography when I was young and it is a hobby I’ve loved for many years. I only wish I had more time to be more creative with it like I was in my younger years.

  • Theresa Miller

    I guess if money was no option I would like to take my family on a vacation for Christmas. I love spending time with our three kids and hubby, he travels for a living so any extra time we can spend with him would be wonderful!!

  • Linda

    OK, something that can be wrapped, a material item? a year supply of thread and fabric and paper and ink and stuff to make all the things I can possibly make! Oh, throw in some classes, please, so I can make wonderful things!

  • grama without a pool

    First I must explainGrama without a pool. I had a pool, moved across the street, no pool. My other name to differentuate me from their other grandmother was the name Grama with the pool. The other grandmother was Grandmother with a forest. She had huge piles of leaves in the fall to get lost in. Being a Miamian I cannot imagine how much fun that must have been. BTW, my quaker parrot now immitates the sound of my Cricut machine. My wish for Christmas is food for the needy and a bagful of health to come their way.

  • Amie K

    This is an easy one! I would love a cricut imagine!!!! Total dream present, lol! I still have my fingers triple crossed that someone was able to pick one up on black Friday….

  • Bobbi Chilson

    I would love to take my hubby to Hawaii on a cruise ship. He has been so patient with me and nursed me through a rough brain surgery. He had to quit his job as I could not be left alone for 6 months. He had to do all the housework and tend to me. There was never a sharp word or even a look. I do not know if i could have been as good as he was to me. He never asks for a thing for himself but I know he would love to go to Hawaii but there is no way. It is only a wish but sometimes wishes DO come true.

  • Lisa M

    I have the cannon rebel and it is a great camera…but like all SLR’s you really have to become an expert to get it off anything but “auto” — it has so many things to learn and remember…honestly it collects dust….I prefer my nice Cannon Powershot it has a good zoom lens (under $200) and it does the same thing without all the hassle and is easy to use when out of “auto” mode without alot of work !!!

  • Sharon

    If money were no object, I’d love to have a custom designed craft room with tons of storage space and organization with lots of natural light!

  • gayle

    Go big or go home…literally. I would love to have a new house. We live in a two story home right now and my husband has a lung disease and we really need a one story home. I am not asking for it to be given to me…I just would love to have a nice house in the right area be for sale. I’ll keep wishing upon my star.

  • Barbara

    Megan, Have that camera and I love it (birthday gift from my loving Husband). check QVC they have a good deal camera, 2-lenses, case and more for around the price he paid for just the camera and one lens and it is on flex pay. Any way wish would be to go on an Alaska cruise with our children and grandchildren. My Hubby and I went last year and it filled a long time wish for me and I would love them to see the wonders of Alaska.

  • Amelia Andrade

    I would love the expression 2! ok, ok. and a full set and I mean ALL of the Copic sketch markers….not too much to ask, right! 😉

  • Cynthia Guy

    I too would LOVE a new still shot camera. I LIke my point and shoot from a couple years ago…but that replaced my 5 year old dying SLR. My old SLR took better shots than my newer tougher point and shoot. I love taking pictures…So that’s a dream of mine to get…

    HOWEVER, just this past week my car died…and it’s not fixable. So maybe if it’s affordable one day, to replace our car. We still have our mini van…but I liked my car. 🙂

    I hope you’re dong well Megan.

  • Denise L.

    Well have to say that I love my Canon Rebel. Greatest Camera. My big ticket item on my list would be a new paper cutter that cuts straight and is sharp. We will see also. Good Luck on your camera.

  • Nancy Coultas-Carol

    I would love a completed scrapbook room in my basement! That would be my ultimate dream, a place to call my own that I can go to and create. I had one in my old house and we moved, but have not had the time and money yet to start and finish it. Please Santa!! Then I can buy more at Above Rubies Studio and have fun….

  • Janet Sisk

    My BIG wish item is a joint one with my hubby. We want a Corvette! LOL No, REALLY! I don’t think it will fit under the Christmas tree. 😀

  • Mary Rawson

    My big gift, that was on my wish list, was the Nikon D3100 camera with extra lens. I got my gift early ( while there was a good deal at Best Buy around Thanksgiving). Thats pretty much all I wanted.

  • Roxane F.

    My dream gift is a Nikon D5100 camera. I’m not asking for it for christmas since it is expensive, I plan a on saving up the money and hopefully buy one in late winter or early spring.

  • penny reinhart

    My christmas wish is that I could get a full organization unit you know what I mean the desk the shelves, the ribbon holder, cabinets for all the extra’s , so that i could put everything in order that i could find what i am looking for without having to dig.

  • Jenny Naus

    My BIG dream wish is to win the lottery to have enough money to totally remodel & add onto our little house and have enough money to survive on for the rest of our lives. I’ve been unemployed for over a year now and we have learned to live on my husband’s paycheck & my tiny unemployment check each month. It’s hard when each of the 3 of us see something we want. For example, a couple of nights ago, a Disney commerical came on tv, my son says he wants to go there tomorrow. We tell him some day we will go there, just not now, we don’t have enough money. He runs into his bedroom & gets this tiny medicine holder he keeps some change in & says, “we have enough money now, let’s go!” It brought tears to my & my husband’s eyes. If only he knew…….

  • Ann Morrell

    I am so lucky..I live at the beach, I’m retired, I’m fairly health, have no money problems, belong to a great family, have great friends…so I wish that all of the listed wishes on these comments could be granted.

  • Tammy P.

    I hate to repeat what you said and other said but I too would like a new camera. I do have one but it is ten years old and is not taking as clear of pictures as it use to and some times I can not get it to work at all. Very frustrating.

  • SallyP

    I would also love a high quality digital camera! I’m not a very good photographer, so maybe a better camera would make my pictures better? LOL

  • Amy Prather-Smith

    My Big Wish item would be to have my crop/craft room totally complete. This would involve totally finishing the basement which would be a major project!

  • Sherry B

    Megan…………I OWN THAT CAMERA! I pray that you get your Christmas wish. You will LOVE it. My Christmas wish is that everyone gets the desire of their hearts. As for me, all I want is Peace and Happiness.

  • Ann Diehl

    If money were no object, I have two BIG WISH items. First one would be to put a basement on/under our house (we only have a very small crawl space so no room or storage area) and get a new furnace & central air. The second would be a trip to Egypt & Jordan to see the Pyramids & Petra. We want to see all 7 Wonders of the World & have been to three already.

  • Trish S.

    I would love a camera like that too! I guess my big dream gift would be a trip to Hawaii with my family. My husband & I got engaged there & haven’t been back since (23 years ago).

  • Debbie

    I have an old camera, nothing special. I used to have a nice one (that used film) that my dad gave me before he passed away, but it quit working several years back. He used to be a photographer, and I too have photography in my blood…. so much so, I took it a step further and became an xray technolgist. It would be nice to have another nice camera again, and I figured that one day I would invest in one. So, that is definately on my Santa Christmas List

  • Tina M

    My BIG Wish for this Christmas is a new Livingroom Set! We just finished painting and oh how nice a new sofa would look…clean & fresh. The last time we purchased a complete livingroom set was about 15 years ago and now my daughters have this piece and that piece in their apts. LOL,plus the Doggies have given it some wear.

  • Jennifer Blackmore

    My big wish is for a Bosch Washer and Dryer set! With 2 young kids and Hubby I do ALOT of laundry and the machines I have just aren’t cutting it anymore. I know it is not going to happen, but a girl can dream! I guess I will just love the set that I have.

  • Christie Johns

    A camera to a scrapbooker is gold. Who wants to miss all those great memories. My wish for Christmas is that all the soldiers away from families get to come home to them sooooooon.

  • SalLee Weidman

    My big wish list item is a kitchen remodel. We have lived in our house for 4 years and the last kitchen remodel was 1972. It is good that green is making a come back.

  • joan manthe

    I would like the book, “Now That You’ve Goe Home” Written by Hopsice. My mom passed away this past June and was under Hospice care at home. Her death has caused major uproar in my family as my 3 siblings no longer talk to me. I chose not to be there for my mom’s final days. I knew I could not deal with it, it was not the memory I wanted. I am also the caregiver for my husband who suffered a stroke 5 years ago. So because of my choice, when my mom died, I lost my whole family. My dad is still living, but has alzheimers and was just moved into an assisted living facility. They did not even let me know this, and it is about 4 miles from my home! However, I did find out and went to visit him yesterday. We had an AWESOME visit! Sorry to post such a bummer of a post, but that is my reality. Thanks for all who took the time to read this. It helped to get it out and vent!
    Merry Christmas and God’s Blessings

  • Patty Miller

    What I would really love the most for Christmas is for my son (and many others) that is under employed to get his basic bill caught up and get a chance to breath without so many worries. So many people are in such a mess this year and just wish I could help more.

    Patty Miller

  • Johanne L.

    My big wish would be to have a Cricut machine and some carthridges. The more I see your videos, the more I want one. There is a lot of things I could do with it and it would make great gifts to family and friends. Have a nice day,

  • Tinalala

    My BIG wish item this year was the Wild Card cartridge, but DH bought that on Black Friday so that made me very happy. Besides that my other BIG wish item is (don’t laugh) but an ATG and maybe a trip to Disney! LOL! Honestly I’m asking for a lot of little card making things under $20 and I always shy away from the ATG because of it’s size and price. I know it sounds silly, but as a Girl Scout leader we always talk to the girls about asking for what you honestly need and not for what you selfishly want. How can I ask for something like a trip to Disney knowing that others asking for a winter coat or a pair of shoes? So my big wish item is something basic for my card making hobby – an ATG!

  • B Womack

    Oh I hope you get what you wish for from Santa! I have to say I ALWAYS carry my camera with me. It’s a great camera, but it’s about 6 years old. I would love to get a new lenses for it. Have a great day.

  • Jeniruth

    My big item wish has just been granted. yesterday, my hubby bought me a baby grand piano! Now big wish scrapbook wise (totally differnt lists) is a place in my home to scrap. For hte past 3 years my hubby keeps saying he will create something for me, but i am still waiting. (I lost my dedicated craft room to my M-I-L who came to live with us. and now that she moved out, it will be my daughter’s room…*sigh*). I wish, I wish, I wish for my own craft area! 🙂

  • Tanya Thompson

    Oh, nice! A new camera would be a great Christmas gift…my daughters have been telling me I need a new one…but MY Big Ticket Wish Item is a Cricut Imagine…(and all the cartridges that go with it…LOL!) I know that’s not going to be under the tree this year, but’s it’s nice to wish! Have a blessed holiday, from my family to yours!

  • Toni

    If I could have anything I wanted I would love for my daughter not to have to go back to Africa on Monday. Her husband is working over there and they have been living there for 4 years. I really would like them to come back to the States.

  • Heather

    I would love to move to a bigger house. After that, a car to replace my 1999 car would be nice, although both of those items are big ticket and will not be under my tree. A new camera and an iphone are on my list also (still won’t be under my tree). Thanks for letting me dream though!

  • Chantel

    I would love a new computer, mine is three years old and getting impossible to do more then one thing at one time. but an ultimate wish would be a cash windfall, build a dream bungalow and take a trip!

  • Sara Foreman

    For a physical gift I would love a touch screen computer and a new updated Kodak camera that would work the upload thingy I have and understand.

    For a ghift that is not physical I wish my son can get better so he can live a productive happy life – he is in an intense outpatient therapy hospital.

  • Carol

    My biggest present would be for my hubby to be able to slow up. He has to work driving shcool bus and farming here on our farm just to make ends meet. There is no time for just us!!!!

  • Carolyn Hartle

    I really have everything I want, a great family. beautiful grandchildren. What more could anybody want. If santa wanted to, he could leave some craft items.

  • Dorinda

    The gift for me would be to have someone come in and decorate my home. I need something new.
    My scrapbook room also needs a make over.

  • Lori

    Like Judy, I too, would love to have my great room/kitchen area painted. I cannot handle the overhead painting. My old digital camera recently died, so I made that purchase, because I don’t want to miss any holiday shots.
    Happy Holidays to All! (I hope we all get what we’ve wished for.)

  • Kai

    My BIG wish is nothing tangible, but a wish that I could be debt free and have enough money to help my dad retire “for real” so he wouldn’t have to continue working anymore. The man turns 74 in March and it breaks my heart that he’s still working so much. It keeps him active, but I wish it was a choice and not a necessity. Hope you get your camera… I got a Nikon D5000 a few years ago and LOVE it. The only thing I don’t like is it’s too bulky to carry with me every day. 🙁

  • Sue

    I would love to see my daughters and their families, I live in Canada and they are in England. I have 8 grandchildren all under 7 with another baby coming in February, I’d love the be there for them when they need a little help, oh and a Jelly Roll from Moda would be great so I can start another project LOL…
    Merry Christmas, I hope you get your camera!

  • Connie Gage

    My main wish right now is to get my little 9 yr old granddaughter back on the mend, she has impacted bowels and dr’ isn’t doing much for her, can’t get her into specialist until April, meantime she’s lost 30 lbs and you know for a 9 yr old that is way to much to lose and dr’s aren’t doing that much but telling my daughter she is neglecting her daughter. OK whey would she evern be at the dr’s then. anyway my wish is to get her better and on the mend.

  • Shirley E.

    I was adopted and recently found out I have a biological brother and sister who were also adopted out. I have met my brother. I live on Ontario Canada and he lives in Vancouver BC, so since we are still far apart it wasn’t far enough to keep up apart. But our sister is in Amsterdam, Holland.
    My biggest wish ever would be to win a trip for my brother and I to travel to Holland to meet her. Or for her to win a trip to come to Canada to meet us.!
    Megan I hope Santa brings you a camera. Being a scrapbooker it’s an absolute necessity.

  • Michelle

    I hope you get your camera, Megan. I love mine that I’ve had for quite awhile now, and take it every where we go. I actually have it attached to my purse. Anyway, my big ticket item on my list this year is to get counter tops in my craft room. I would love to be able to organize everything so I can see what I have at a glance and have room for my cricut, sewing machine, etc. BUT I’m thinking that might not happen now since my 15 year old car just died. Ugh!

  • Sheila

    I really would love to have a new camera, but what I want most of all is a Cake Mixer so that I can fill all of these cake orders. My old one has died.

  • Diana

    I hope Santa brings you a camera! I have the cannon rebel (oder model) and we love it!! My biggest wish would be for my husband, that he would not have to work so many long hours. Merry Christmas everyone!

  • Margaret K

    MY big WISH item would be a new SUV. That is one gift I know Santa isn’t putting under the tree but if we are wishing then wish big. My relalistic wish if for a Kindle Fire and I think Santa heard that wish.
    May Santa be there for all of us and we are happy and blessed with the things we have
    Merry Christmas and avery happy safe New Year.

  • Carol E.

    A big gift for me would be to get the new Expression 2. And to make it even sweeter would be get a years supply of scrapbook kits every month.

  • Louvenia Smith

    Hope you get what you wished for. A good camera is a great thing. If I could have one big wish it would be for new furniture. I have never had a new set just new to me which is still good) but I think it would be so neat to be able to go pick out a new livingroom set and not have to worry about price lol.

  • marilyn

    I would love to have a crafting room outfitted for lots of storage…and since I’m wishing BIG… lets have it come stocked with lots of supplies. Yes, sounds good to me. Hope everyone is doing great this holiday.

  • Melissa

    I want to go on a Cricut cruise. I just ordered the Gypsy A-Z the other day. But I want uninterrupted time with my machine. I just can’t get that while I’m home. Well maybe a retreat would do. Someplace away from home where the Cricut is the focus. Snowed in someplace. yes, that would work too!

  • Kathy Camps

    I would really love a nice craft room — even if it’s in the corner of the family room. Right now I just ahve a little craft cabinet but I would like a nice desk w/ drawers and on the walls some shelves so I could organize by craft items without stuiffing them all in a craft cabinet 🙂

  • Janice

    My big dream wish is to get the screened porch roof fixed. We have paid for it but even after numerous visits they still can’t find the problem. That’s for me. For everyone – PEACE ON EARTH. Is that to much to ask?

  • Jan B

    A new camera sounds wonderful- Mine is digital and although it is about 6 years old – still works just fine. But I have already recd my Christmas present-something I did not know I needed . My youngest was in a bad car accident 2 days ago. He hit a tree going about 45 miles an hour and walked away from it. He did suffer a concussion but he is home adn doing alright. The car is a total loss but I can thank God that my son is still with us!
    Megan I hope you get every thing on your list. I truly enjoy all the videos and products that you have made available for all us scrapbook addicts. But what I enjoy most is your love and committment to your customers which is founded in your faith and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

  • Sandy Handrich

    I already got my big gift, I bought it for myself Thanksgiving Day. I got the Cricut Expression 2 at Michaels for $199 with 4 cartridges!!! That was the biggest thing on my list but I knew my husband would never search or find a deal like that so I took the pressure off for him and bought it myself with the money I make selling Avon! I’m a happy camper 🙂

  • Annette

    Merry Christmas to everyone! I don’t need anything but I would like a nice small camera to throw in my pocket. I have a ig one that takes amazing pics but hard to carry around. Sometimes on my way to work or running errands, there is an amazing sunrise, cute calves in a field, or beautiful flowers and they are just a memory. Like I said before, just a wish but not necessary:)

  • Pat L

    A home/craft organiner to come in to my home and help me set up things. (I just moved and the space is smaller than what I had, but it is enough…Just need some help with putting it together to make a lovely home. Would also like to mention the need for reseach and help for those on the autism spectrum. Resources are scarce and it is such a puzzle to determine why this affects so many. Thank you for this opportunity to share dreams.

  • Cathy Sittmann

    Megan, I hope you get your camera. My wish this year would be to get a Job. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy holidays.

  • Andrea Dixon

    Good morning! I think you should get the camera. I have one and love love love it. Since I am such a big scrapbooker and this is my hobby it was worth the investment. Investing in my family and friends and life. This is what life is all about. I got a Cannon Rebel for my birthday a few years ago and never looked back. It takes fantastic pictures and i love it.

  • Andrea Dixon

    I would like a professional organizer to come to my house and organize and set up storage and work spaces for my scrapbook room. That would be an awesome christmas. It would be a gift that would keep on giving.

  • Maggy Tronche

    Hi Megan!!! Well if I would like very very much un Ipad!!! I hope Santa this year can hear me!!! LOL! But if not ok I can wait for next year!!! Big Hugs… Maggy 🙂

  • BJ

    I’m still wishing for the Silhouette Cameo! My santa wouldn’t have a clue where to find one. Maybe Mrs. Clause will have to start leaving bigger hints.

  • Name (Required)

    My biggest wish is that my family have a good Christmas, not because of the gifts but because of spending time together and celebrating Christ’s birthday.

  • Kelly Bienvenu

    My big wish would be for a dishwasher! It’s going on 2 years since we’ve had one and everytime I come close to having the money, something comes up!

  • Darla Flynn

    Megan, I am with you…the camera would be my dream… and while I am wishing a craft room please Santa!!!!
    Merry Christmas everyone!

  • Rebecca

    My biggest dream of all is to have evrything I need to organize my craft room. My dream is to make cards for those who may not get mail. People like the homeless, the recovering addicts, the diseased and forgotten, etc. Just to let them know that someone cares for them enough to make something special for them personally. Then I would like to make scrapbooks of some of these people to share the story of their lives. So many have led amazing lives that people may never know of otherwise. And of course I would need a really good camera to do that (chuckle).

  • SandyR

    What I would want for Christmas cannot be wrapped. This is a perfectly selfish wish too. I would love to have my spare room converted into my craftroom. Shelves, work table, lights, tho whole thing. Aaahhhh, I am smiling and dreaming now.

  • Kate D

    My huge wish is to move closer to my mom so that she would move in with us. We would have to move to another state, but that wouldn’t matter. My really big “under the tree wish” other than the Silhouette Cameo is a new computer. We’re still using the almost 10 year old. Slow doesn’t begin to describe it.

    I do hope you get that camera–wouldn’t that qualify as a business expense–or at least justify the purchase? Of course that would mean a few less trips to Starbucks…..just kidding.

  • Christa Hamilton

    I too would love a new camera. I have had digital point and shoot cameras and with out fail I would or my kids would drop it and it breaks. Seriously for the past 3 years this has happened. I need a big camera that is easy to hold and takes great pictures that has a crazy zoom lens. This has been on my wish list for the past 5 years at least….just can’t justify paying all that money, especially when I don’t have it. BUMMER!!!!

  • Janice M.

    Megan, I hope you get your camera!
    My BIG wishlist item is quite a bit larger than that….I want an older 2 story house to open a scrapbooker/quilter retreat in. I have done my homework and have it named, my business plan written out, and supply list made. Just need the main piece…the house!! (Oh, and the ok from my dh to get a loan!!!)

  • KathR

    If I could have anything I wished for Christmas, it would be to have my Mum back,Don’t get me wrong, my mum is still with us, but she has Altzeimers and no longer knows who we are.I would love for just one day to have her back to her old self ,to be able to talk with her and know that she knew who my sisters, brother and grandchildren were…..But I know that won’t happen so I would be happy with anything crafty!..Hope you get you Camera Megan, and that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas…
    hugz Kath…xx…

  • Tricia

    My big wish is to finish our basement so I can have a new craft room. I share a space with my dh now and it would be so nice if I could have my own room again!!

  • Melinda

    I would love a zoom lens for my camera. I could not afford both – I have had the camers for about 2 years, just never could get the good lens to go with it. Before long the camera will be obsolete.

  • Cathy Wegner

    A cruise!! My daughter got married this year and our business is not doing well but we have been on a few cruises and they are so relaxing and fun. Maybe next year!!

  • Emmy

    My big wish is to have my son and his wife and kids be able to come to Maine from Virginia….not looking good!! But that’s what I want…

  • Rhonda Harre

    I would love to get our front porch and back porch fixed so hubby has access to both along with adding on a carport to the end of our home. This way he can get outside in all kinds of weather. As long as I am dreaming, I would added a patio in the back yard with a fire pit in the middle. That would be the cats meow to enjoy in the spring and fall. Love the smell of a “camp” fire along with the goodies that go along with it – hotdogs and smores. Merry Christmas

  • Shannon Brey

    Dreaming Big?! I would want a beautiful large craft/scrap room. Someplace where I can have all my supplies in one place and beautifully organized. But that would require an addition to my small 2 bedroom house so I guess this year it will remain a dream!

  • Stephanie

    Oh Megan,
    A Canon Rebel is the best, two of our family members have T3’s and they take amazing pictures. One of my grand-daughters brings a Canon T3 home from school. She takes fabulous pictures for school assignments. I believe with your inspiration, this camera can take award winning pictures. I would love this camera and to join our family in ownership of the Canon T3i. If I win I will let everyone know about the amazing camera tote that I purchased for them for Christmas. You will want to order one of these totes for this special camera.

  • Rose LaQuay

    I would love a new computer. My laptop is 6 years old this month and I’m having problems with storage, speed and newer programs. My daughter is editing my youtube videos, so I have to wait for her to have time where if I had a new computer that could handle my video software, I could do them myself and get them uploaded promptly.

  • Naomi

    I would like a good job for my grandson and a home for him and his little family to live in. I have faith that this will happen soon and his little family can be on their own. Gifts for me are not necessary because we are so blessed already. I hope you get your camera. Our daughter sure loves her rebel!

  • Mary s

    I’ve done pretty well on my wish list this year. I still have a job, low paying, but it sure helps. Last christmas and for my birthday, My daughters gave me a gift card towards an ipad2 so I can FaceTime my daughter and her two girls. When I got the iPad, I realized that an iPhone would be handy. I got the iPhone 4s. So I am good on the wish list. My daughter is talking about us all getting together and going to disney world. I would Love to be around my grandchildren as they experience that magical place.

  • sheila

    My crazy gift would be a 15 passenger van! We outgrow our suburban with the last baby and haven’t even shopped for a new vehicle! It would be amazing if my Hubby had time to research and pick one out for us!

  • Stephanie Justice

    My big wish item is the Cricut Expression 2. ‘Nuf said!!
    But then of course, a new camera would also be nice since mine died about three months ago.

  • Tracy Hocking

    What I would really, really like is for my husband to not get laid off every year from his job (seasonal work) Been doing it for almost 25 years and it gets OLD! Ok… besides that, for me, boy… let’s see…. I would LOVE a cricut imagine…. I’ve heard good and bad things… but I’d still LOVE one to have some fun with!!! Merry Christmas!

  • Stephanie W

    I would love a Scrapbox. My wonderful hubby doesn’t complain that my scrap area takes up 1/2 the space in our small living room. I would love to at least have it contained behind closed doors so that it doesn’t look so……jumbled. Even when it’s well organized it’s not your typical living room look.

  • Lynda Raymond

    Truly my biggest present of all would be; love, health and happiness to everyone. It is too unhappy out there. Many do not feel the excitement of living each day. Maybe if everyone just gave a smile to someone you don’t know today, maybe we can make a small difference in their life. Oh and I’d love the same camera. : )

  • Mary Ellen

    My big wish list item is to have a profesional quality digital camera and a few lessons to learn how to use it. I am on my second inexpensive digital camera and I am dispointed in the inconsistent quality of pictures I get from it. Thank you, Megan, for all of your enthusiasm and how you graciously share wonderful ideas with us. I hope you get everything on your Christmas wish list!

  • Kimberly Walker

    I would love to have a cricut imagine. But I can’t afford it and don’t have the space to place it. My craft area is already full of things. I would also love to have my own craft room.

  • Kay Goebel

    If I could have ANYTHING, it would be to give my son and “daughter” their dream…can’t mention it here, but they know what it is 🙂

  • Linda

    For a wrapped gift I’d love to find a Zutter Bind-it-All under my Christmas tree…the crafting bug has really bitten me this year! Megan, hope Santa finds you’ve been a really good girl and that you get your dream camera…

  • Karen B.

    I am thankful for all my many blessings and my big wish is something money can’t buy. I wish for a friend who loves scrapbooking as much as I do!

  • Debby J

    My big wish is for my son. I wish he could find his dream job and become the successful, happy guy I know is hidden somewhere inside him. He has been through so much-bullied in school because he was so much smarter than the average guy(IQ of 150), suffered from depression starting at the age of 13 and now at the age of 29, he could not even get a job for the holidays, and I can see the depression signs returning once again. So, even though I know it is not possible, that is my big (or rather HUGE) wish for this Christmas as it is my prayer every night-a prayer I truly hope will be answered soon.

  • Stephanie K

    I’m getting organized for Christmas…so far two new tables and DH is rearranging our office to make room for my craft “nook”. That is what I want the most…a space to spread.

  • Alice Melchor

    That is nice gift! But my gift is that the solders come home for Christmas to their family and to take the cancer pain away from my family I have 3 in my family that have cancer and those who has it also. I’m not asking for anything for Christmas. I’m just asking God to take the pain away for those who r going threw pain. Their was this woman who her Husband had shot her 4 little kids, her and them himself. They live a small town about 30 min away from where I live and that is so sad. The little kids ages were 3,4,5,6 they passed away the next day and I think the mother is still in critical. I’m not sure but he killed himself. And their was another their was an other shooting in Lubbuck I think i spelled it right but anyway a mother was denide foodstamp help and killed her kids and then herself. So I want their family pain to go away for those who are struggling.

  • Louise W.

    If I wished for myself I would wish for a craftroom makeover and a laptop computer. Mostly I wish for a better economy so that the struggles of life were less for everyone.

  • Vera Conner

    My big wish is for a Silhoutte Cameo cutting machine, and guess what, I think I’m getting it!!!! I’d love a new camera too!!!! Merry Christmas everyone.

  • Tammy B

    My crafting—non Mac -laptop computer has been so uber fab—my mom gave it to me, but it could use a bit more memory and the DVD drive has been literally growling at me lately. i’ve heard that I should check into an external hard drive? We’ll see:) He shall provide my needs according to His riches in glory! 🙂 Ultimately I truly desire that the Lord will use me as His instrument to touch others with His love—-be blessed beyond measure

  • Kim

    My dream gift would be a trip to new Zealand/Austraila! Or maybe a snazzy camera too. My goal for 2011 is to take a photograph class…I need a camera first!

  • Wanda

    My big dream wish (besides the Lynx) would be a Disney World vacation with my grandkids. I am blessed in my life and wish all of you the Merriest Christmas ever.

  • Chris

    My no money object would be to have all the kids and grandkids together at Christmas time. We haven’t all spend a Christmas together in years. I have never spent Christmas with the grandkids. Would just love that.

  • Barbara Burgess

    I just purchased the new iPhone 4S. That is my Christmas gift to myself. The camera is wonderful. It is 8 pixels…much better than my 3G and I liked a lot of the pictures it took. The only problem with the old one is it didn’t have a flash and night pictures were a problem. For Christmas,I would really like to
    go to Disney and see the light spectacular!

  • Candy

    I would love to have a sun room with a big table in the middle – just think how lovely it would be to spread out my crafts on that big table with beautiful sunlight filtering through the windows – just like in a dream.

  • Wanda

    I would really love an embroidery sewing machine! I collect fabric like paper, its an addiction!! 🙂
    The Brother Innov-is NX2000 would be wonderful!

  • Dawn Lampman

    what Ide really like would be, to finish off the needed repairs for our home.
    We have been here 6 yrs and the money has runout. Then both my husband and
    I are now on disability. ::shrug::
    I do know my husband bought me a camera. Its a nice one he found on
    black friday for just under $150.
    Dawn RI

  • Cindy Larsen

    I would really like a new table for my scraproom. I have one and I have make it work but would lile one a bit longer and a bit wider. And a paie of fingerless gloves would me nice ♥

  • Kris Blakla

    I just got a new Kindle Fire I wanted as an early Christmas gift from my loving husband. I would also like a new Cannon T3 Rebel camera and an iPad2 (64) but I dont’t think they will appear this year.

  • Glenda Hart

    That’s a nice camera. My Big dream wish is to get on a design team. I have applied to a couple but no luck so far but I keep trying

  • Mary Arellanes

    If I could have any wish for Christmas I would have my husband come home from Afghanistan, my son come home from Morocco, and my niece come home from Afghanistan. They are all serving our country overseas at the moment and the best present would be for them to be able to be home at Christmas.

    A new camera would be nice too! lol

  • MommyMe

    Yesterday, my parents were greeted in the morning by a leaking roof in the kitchen. They’ve been in the midst of heavy rains for a day or two. Further inspection revealed a damaged roof, an attic full of molded rafters and insulation, and a crack in the kitchen ceiling. My parents are both on disability. Aside from the wish for health, (mentioned on yesterday’s post), I wish I could afford to replace their roof!

  • Nanette Fodor

    I can’t believe I’m finding it so hard to think of something. 2 things I’ve had on my mind lately are a Cinch machine (not sure what I would do with it but I think it would be nice to have…just in case!) the other would be a better camera although I’m not sure that my pictures not coming out that great is the camera or me…lol.

    Hope you get your camera!

  • Betsy

    I’d love an IPad tablet! I’m thinking of asking Santa for cabinets for my craft/sewing room. I cleaning lady would be wonderful?! HO! HO! HO!

  • Debbie Clute

    My big wish is for our oldest son to come home from Afghanistan safely & that he not have to go back again (5 deployments is enough). Wishing you all Happy Holidays!

  • Crystal

    My big wish for Christmas is my RA would just go away. I am very blessed to have a wonderful husband and daughter in my life. I have allot of scrapping stuff, machines, cameras and my husband doesn’t really say anything about any of this. I would just love to be able to move, run and play with my daughter and not have to worry if I will feel bad the next day. I am very grateful for my life cause I always know it could be worse, but this is what god gave me and he has a big plans for me. I truly believe this.
    Megan – I hope you get your camera

  • Heather W

    My big christmas wish would be to be able to buy a house so we could have a yard and also to build a sensory/motor room for my son. I mentioned in yesterday’s post that my son has autism and is non-verbal. We are limited by living in a 1 level townhouse (renting).

  • Tami

    If I could have any gift for Christmas? I’d probably ask for new appliances – a stove and refrigerator. They don’t necessarily need to be replaced, but I find myself wishing I’d have gotten a gas stove when we moved into this house almost 3 years ago. And we brought our fridge from our old house, which we had lived in for about 12 years. It still works fine also, but I’d love one of those fridge-on-top-pull-out-freezer-on-bottom wonders. 🙂

    I’m sure it won’t happen. But it’s fun to “wish”. 🙂

  • Krysta

    A convection oven. Ha! How’s that for a HUGE dream wish list item? I used to have one, then we moved and I now have a wall-oven. It was brand new with the house, but I miss my convection.

  • Linda R.

    If money were no object, I would certainly opt for an addition onto the house so that I could have an entire room for scrapbooking and crafts and photography!! A total fantasy at this point, but a girl can dream!! Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂

  • Irene Mermelstein

    I am extremely fortunate to have just about everything my heart desires….the best husband ever, great children and grandchildren, time to craft, ability to travel, better health (since August of 2010, I have lost 108 lbs with gastric bypass surgery and feel great), most material possessions, and happiness so what else is there to want??? I guess my wish would be for everyone else to be where I am. Current wish..continued good health for me and my family too.

  • Jeri

    My biggest wish would be a surprise visit from my family. My husband and I are in Florida for the winter and this will be the first time in 39 years that we aren’t with our family. Makes me sad. But, I know that’s not going to happen so my next big wish would be to open a giant box with all the Cricut Cartridges that I don’t have.

  • Bobbie

    What I would really like are some custom made cabinets to put on my wall in my crafting room. I do not have enough storage space. It is a very small room.

  • Melanie Keenan

    There are many other things that I would rather have (craft related, of course), but what I really need is a different car. I’m quite sure Santa won’t be bringing me one this year, though.

  • Letty

    I am very blessed and thankful for what I have. Having said that…if i could get a big wish I think I would want the WHOLE Tim Holtz collection. i have been scrapbooking for a while but only recently discovered Tim Holtz. I have been working on my son’s graduation album and that is how I came across Tim Holtz! I am sooooo in love with his distressing inks!

  • Peggy

    My big dream item is a Pink Journey Expression. Since I’ve had an Expression for about 4 years, it would be a total splurge, but I love the pink one!

  • Elsa

    What I would really like for Christmas? To save my home from foreclosure, or at the very least to get a decent Executive Administrative Assistant–(or any) job in South Florida. Times are really hard here in Miami.

  • Anita Wills

    I, too, would love a new Digital SLR camera. Nothing beats that fast shutter speed. But, alas, this is a dream. Extra money going to son’s college expenses. Have a blessed Merry Christmas!

  • casey toney

    I can be such a total copy cat. I would love a brand new digital DLSR too!!!! SInce I am on a roll, I would love to have a portable high quality print scanner…..the dynamic duo. Ahhh…the toys…….gotta love em.

  • Judy

    My big wish is a toss up between two items (neither of which I will get, but this is a dream post, right?). I would love, love, love to get the full set of Copic sketch markers or an Apple iPad2. I hope you get your camera, Megan!!

  • crystal nichols

    My dream gift is a trip to ireland with my family. My husband & I really want to go and I think it would be a great opportunity for my boys to see another country.

  • Carmen Elrod

    HI Megan~
    I would love to have a camera with a changeable lens on it, and a GOOD instruction manual. I have loved photography since I got my first camera when I was 10! I take some really great pictures, but could really make it a full time hobby if I just had a better camera! I hope Santa is good to you , Megan!

  • Kari Meshak

    I would love to have a new vehicle, doesn’t have to be brand new but new to me. And I also need to have my upstairs remodeled so my kids can have their own bedrooms and I can have an actual crafting area.

  • Jan H

    My biggest wish would be to retire. I have been at my current job for 14 years and am ready to retire and start doing the things I really enjoy, which means more time to be creative! I would love to get a “fun” part time job, either at a craft store or doing something creative from home. Megan, I hope Santa brings you a camera. I got one last year and still haven’t figured out all of the things it does! Merry Christmas!

  • Meghan

    My big wish list item was a Gypsy and more more more Cricut Cartridges. I have such a problem. My true wish list has less gifts on it and more happiness for me and my family. That is what is truly important. I am just feeling so lucky to have my beautiful 13 month old daughter, great husband, and wonderful family. So my true wish list item is that they are happy & healthy.

  • Cheryl W.

    Would love to be out of debt, but mostly would love a new (or newer) truck for my hubby. I think in another few years, the truck he has now could be considered an antique!

  • KitnM

    By big or rather huge wish would be a craft room! It isn’t going to happen but it is a dream! It is sometimes fun to dream and wish big. I am grateful for the home that we do have and am grateful that I am able to work for His Kingdom doing a job that He has prepared for me, or rather a job that He has prepared me for!

  • Janice

    I would love to find an imagine and the Santa’s Village cartridge under my tree. Even though I know it’s not going to happen this year, I can still wish for it 🙂 I hope you do find your camera under the tree Megan ~ and I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

  • Carol W.

    My big wish is to final find a house (we have been looking for awhile but nothing that fits us, fits our budget) with a craft room! Not to much to ask, huh? LOL Thank you for the chance to win.

  • BJ

    My big wish is to be able to move to south Florida to help take care of my aging mom. I’d love to be able to have a home with a room for my mom, myself, and a crafting. One where she would be comfortable and be able to receive therapy.

  • Kelly

    My Christmas wish would be for researchers to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. I have seen too many wonderful young people die from it. I have CF, so crafting with my little Cricut brings much joy when I’m stuck in the house or hospital. May you have the merriest Christmas of all.

  • ClaireR

    I would love a craft room (I know hard to wrap and put under the tree). The dining room and kitchen is getting to small for all my stuff. Maybe by next year’s christmas….
    Thanks for hosting and a chance to win 🙂

  • Lisa R

    So, funny, Megan: I have been drooling over the ads for this same camera. Our camera is so old; it doesn’t hold the digital date and it regularly freezes up, making it hard to get some of those come and gone shots. It was a great camera in its day, but it is time for it to retire.

  • Tiffany Morkovsky

    Megan, I want a camera too! One of my children (the one named not me) droped my camera and broke the screen. I have been using my phone camera, but the quality of the pics is just not the same as a regular camera. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

  • Vicki

    I would love to do a make over in my craft/junk room. This is our overflow room. But at least I have some place to keep all my crafting stuff. It just needs some oranization.

  • Diane

    Actually my big dream present this year would be a new Desktop Computer… my processor just went out on mine and although everything was backed up I don’t have a spare computer to work with. I also doubt that Santa will be placing this under my tree, but we can all be hopeful. Thanks again for the wonderful time on your blog.

  • Cindi

    I think my one big wish would be to have a great set of copic markers. But wait…..I think i would want bunches and bunches of the Layrz papers…..Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Cheryll

    I don’t have any big gifts on my list but the CTMH cricut cartridge has been on my to die for list and since it is a little more pricey, I still haven’t allowed myself to add it to my list.

  • Sheila

    I have been wanting a new front load washer and dryer for 3 years now. My machine is a piece of POOH! But my husband and a family friend, that is an appliance repair person, keep it going. I wish it would die and not be repairable. One could only hope.

  • Charity Brown

    I would love to get a Kindal for Christmas….I hardly have time to craft let alone read, so maybe what I really need is a crafting vacation!!LOL

  • Wanda

    Megan, I will cross my fingers that soon you will get your camera. You surely deserve it! If money wasn’t a limit I could go for my own little space that I can call my craft room. Right now my stuff is in the same room as the play room. And you know how playrooms gets….. eek!


  • Judy

    I’d love to have my dad home for Christmas this year. He and his wife head to Florida in October and haven’t been around for a family Christmas in over 10 years. Hope you get your camera- you never know what Santa may leave under your tree!! Happy Holidays!

  • Deborah Mussack

    My big Christmas wish is to get the December kits from Above Rubies…my husband just switched jobs so this year is a lite year in gift giving…

  • Marla H.

    I would LOVE to have a nicer video camera to take my Youtube videos on or even a tablet computer so I could have wireless wherever I traveled.!!

  • Donna Diggins

    My DREAM item is to fly my step daughters and their families here for a big hectic Christmas….they have had an even rougher year financially than we have had and I think being together would mean so much

  • Nicole H.

    A big ticket item for me would be a laptop computer, so I could Skype with my bestie out in my studio! I hope Santa brings you your camera! Merry Christmas Megan!

  • Heather Underhill

    I would love a weeks family vacation without any cell phones ringing or deadlines looming…just being together somewhere warm.

  • Brandy

    My BIG wish is that hubby and I could retire. But that can’t happen for another 3 years. I guess that is not too long to wait. Then I could start my crafting business. Till then, I could wish for that camera you love so much. My son-in-law has one and it is AWESOME!!!! But that will never happen for me because of the $$$. I also want a Black Cat Foil Master – again too much $$$. Besides, If I got all the “stuff” I really wanted, we would have to move out of our boat to a bigger one. Hmm, that might not be a bad idea 🙂

  • Joan S.

    I would like a Nook or similar reader, but $ is tight this year so am okay without it. Gift cards or $ for Cricut cartridges or scrapbooking supplies is always a good gift- I like to shop myself as I think the biggest part of the fun is browsing and browsing some more, trying to decide on what I can buy with the money.

  • Barbara

    Since I just got my Bind-It-All from Blitsy for a super great price, seeing your wish for a camera, reminding me that I have been on the hunt for a wide angle lens for my Nikon. So, here is wishing Santa brings your camera, and still has room in the sleigh for my lens.

  • Karrie Martin

    THIS IS EXACTLY THE ONLY THING I HAVE ON MY WISH LIST. I’ve even told my husband to combine Christmas and my birthday (jan.) if he has to. I doubt it’ll happen. He just went back to work recently, and we haven’t had time to build the savings account back up.

  • Deana Hayes

    My big wish would be to take my family to Maui. I was there a few years ago and fell in love with it. I hope that Santa brings you the camera for Christmas, as I have a DSLR camera and it brings me a lot of joy to use.

  • Judie

    I am so blessed, I really don’t have any special wishes, but it would be a wonderful present if my daughter in TN an her family could be with us in Cali for Christmas. She is all alone in TN with no family, while her brothers, sisters-in-law and nieces and nephew are here in Cali. Not asking for much, Just saying.

  • Cindy Sue

    I would love a house keeper, one that also does windows. That way I could spend more time reading E-mails, making cards, playing with the dog, getting dinner on the table. and more time to spend with my husband.
    Thanks Megan for all the great ideas. I hope that you get everything that you wish for.

  • Hazel Hall

    At my age I have more than I need: love, friends, my good health, and many Blessings from God! What more do I need? I already have a lot of craft items, a camera to record memories, a lap computer, Ipad, so I really cannot think of anything else I need.

  • Rene

    My BIG Dream Wish would be for a new Van (I’m not picky about make and model) So I can put all my grandbabies and daughters in one vehicle to go places. Not very likely but I hate when we have to take two and three vehicles. I can dream!

  • Janet T

    My big wish was to finally get my laundry room out of the dungeon basement, the best part is that I got that and an additional bathroom in the process. So now that we have 2 and 1/2 baths and laundry room on the second floor their is no longer fighting over who gets the shower first! With six kids this is such a long awaited blessing! God bless!

  • Becky H.

    A stress free time off for my husband. He takes care of his father. His father lives alone and is very difficult. My husband is the best son a parent could have and I just with his dad would realize that and give him a break.

  • Karen from SW KS

    WOW Megan!! That is the same camera I am wishing for!! I always borrow my sons camera when I am traveling so it would be great to have my own!!

  • Nancy F.

    I would love to have a new camera with interchangeable lenses. I have a nice camera, but would like more versatility. I would also love to be able to give my son the 32″ TV that is on his list. He says I should be concerned about his eyesight when he plays games on a smaller TV. lol

  • Debi West

    I love using acrapping ideas for a huge variety of crafts. My work in progress is to put together a family tree, so far my book is rather large. Next I want to make a wall poster with a lot of the info on it.

  • Linda Walker

    My big dream wish is an Ipad2 but I have been doing my homework and I think the Samsung Galaxy 10 is winning right now. The Galaxy allows you to play games and stuff which is making it the number 1 in the running. Same price just more stuff on it. =) I love the canon camera that you have choosen. it looks like an awesome camera. Good luck


  • Nikki

    I know it’s not super big ticket, but it is for us, I would like a serger. I have never had one and I love to sew clothes for my kids. A trip to Disney for the family would be nice too. Something to save up for next year 🙂

  • Tonia H.

    My husband and I don’t usually get each other any gifts, but this year we decided to replace our 15 year old couch. The problem is finding something I like that is well built and at a reasonable price. I wish someone would figure this out for me and bring me the couch I didn’t know I wanted! A once a week house keeper would be awesome too. MERRY CHRISTMAS Megan!

  • Tammy Brownlee

    I would love like a few others have said, for my husband to be able to retire. He works very hard so we can play in our spare time. What’s that? Anyway, if he retired, he would have time to finish restoring my 69 Camaro that has been an ongoing project since we married in 98! In his defense, we haven’t had the $$ or time to touch it in 7 years now, so… A new camera would be great too!

  • Debbie

    I have sooo many this year. Due to our business taking a big hit when the economy when down the tubes, we have struggled to just stay above water. Sometimes we have been gurgling a little. Anyway, I would love a car that runs, mine has been broke down now for several months. It will cost $2500 to fix and that is about what it is worth. It has been a great car, 220,000 miles. I can’t complain.

  • Kelli Etienne

    I think my big wish is to have my 11 month old sleep through the night!!! I have to admit, my husband has been great and i just got my big item for my birthday early last year… I got a canon t2i and I love it!!!! You enjoy it so much more when you have to dream about it for a while. My hubby told me to research the cameras to see which brand was the best and the cost/value difference and which features i wanted and which lens I wanted, etc., etc. Anyway, I ended up dreaming and researching for about 6 months before i ordered my camera. But it was well worth the wait.

  • Tina Michael-Dahlmann

    I would love to get a car again. We lost ours due to economic downturn and it is so hard without one; especially living in the country.


  • Linda

    Hope you get your camera. My wish would be for a new house with no stairs……………Guess I better keep on wishing or win the lottery. It is fun to wish… Just think if I won the lottery I could pay off my kid’s homes without them knowing. How fun would that be.
    Thank you
    Linda in Stanwood

  • Pamela Wilson

    I would be blessed with anything that has to do with scrapbooking

    It’s been a tough couple of years so I am not hard to please
    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

  • Mary Ann Huntington

    I’ve been so blessed my married life and have almost everything I want. What I would give anything for is for my husband and some close friends to be healthy. Money can’t buy this wish unfortunately. Happy holidays everyone.

  • Nanci

    My big wish would be to finalize the adoption of my daughter. The other big wish I have would be to take a vacation with my whole family.

  • Peggy Whisenhunt

    My all time DREAM is to have a home that has a porch all the way around it. From the front door to the back and wide enough that when you sit outside and it is pouring down rain, you can sit and watch it and smell it and not get wet. It has been my dream my entire life and so far it has not come true. I also want a door to go out of on all sides also. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to DREAM.

  • Dana

    I have a good camera but I would love a good lense for taking portraits. I actually have two items I would love to have. The first is a better lense for my camera and the second is an Epson printer. I love to scrap the old fashioned way but I am new to digital scrapbooking and I would love to have the ability to print 12 X 12 layouts from a new printer.

  • CathyinMN

    My big wish for Christmas (definitely not going to happen) is for my own laptop and wireless internet. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  • Karen

    You can’t wrap the present I want.
    All I need is a ride on the Budweiser Beer wagon. (Not for the beer. Just those lovely horses.)
    I’ve loved those Clydesdales as long as my memory will serve me.
    Happy tears come to my eyes just imagining myself on that seat next to the driver and the dalmatian.
    It would be a dream come true!!!!

    Merry Christmas

  • Amy E.

    I like today’s wish list item! I want a digital SLR soooooo bad!! Oh well, I’ll get one eventually. If we’re going REALLY big, a new convertable Camaro would be nice to see in my driveway on Christmas morning!!

  • Chriss America Real

    My big dream is for my 29 year old son to find a wife! I think it might be happening, he is bringing home a girl for us to meet and he is going to meet her family. He is a P.h.D student and she is a P.h.D student so if they got married they would be Doctor & Doctor, so cute! My son had a very hard childhood, he couldn’t speak for the first five years of his life, I can’t believe how far he has come!

  • Lisa L.

    I would love my own scrapbook room, in a new custom built house… you did say dream big right? hehehe! That camera would be next on my dream wish list with all of those fun lenses they make now! Thanks again!

  • Alina

    Hi Megan,hi SHAUN…I live alone,don’t have children so I have 3dogs and 6indoor cats.I would like okay looove a canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR CAMERA with 18-55mm IS lens. So I can take pictures of my critter family.THANKS for the chance to Alina Koludrovich Battle creek MI

  • Jan Foselli

    I really don’t have a HUGE gift item, but I just want the floor in our kitchen to have the new tile put down!!!! That would honestly be the best gift of all!! Of course, if my DH bought me a new carbon-frame bike, I wouldn’t complain……

  • Sue Anderson

    I’d like for my darling hubby to be able to retire so we can spend more time together. I also wish that I won the mega lottery, so I could grant the wish of everyone that has posted on this site. THAT would be wonderful! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all! 🙂

  • Brenda L (centralnyscrapper)

    There are several things I would love to have; no real big ticket items and nothing I need so I’m just being grateful for what I have: health, happiness, a home and a job. I hope each of those continue into 2012. Merry Christmas and/or Happy Hanukkah and if do not celebrate either, happy days to you! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  • PJ Clark

    My really big wish would be to go on a scrapbooking cruise and be able to get inspiration from all the others there. Hope you find your camera under the tree.

  • Lars Anderson

    I would love to be able to get the wheelchair ramp finished. My wife has arthritis and has had to start using the wheelchair to get around. I am trying to build a ramp on the front of our house so she can go outside. I have bought the materials, I just need to grow a few more hands so I can get it finished. It is taking sooo long.

  • Vanessa Hilker

    Southwest plane tickets for my husband, son and I to be able to fly out to California for my baby sister’s wedding. I would also like to update my camera.

  • Stacey

    My “big wish” is a totally finished basement with a craftroom as 1/4 of the basement!! I have all the plans drawn up but the contractors estimate is a little on the “HOLY COW” side of things 😉
    And just an FYI, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my T3i! Rockin pics…has a HUGE learning curve if you like taking the “fanicer” pics which of course I do! But when you finally get it, you will love it!

  • Christine S

    I would love a new car or new used with low mileage. I don’t just want a new car, I need a new car. I’m not always sure we will make it over the mountain we have to cross as we travel to hockey games!

  • Lisa

    Since we’re dreaming BIG, I’d love for my sweet hubby to be able to retire and to have the time and financial freedom to do all of the many things he loves…. Cooking, fishing, camping, woodworking, and yes, even crafting with me! 🙂
    On a smaller, yet still BIG scale, I’d really love to have a large Scrap Box and the room to house it!
    Seems like I’m ALWAYS in need of better organization for all my craft treasures.
    Merry Christmas all!

  • Mary

    A big wish item for me has been the same for the last four years…a house. It doesn’t have to be big, just a place to call home. My husband, son and I have been living in a 1 bedroom basement apartment and it’s really getting to everyone emotionally. Add to that, I lost my job and haven’t been able to find another, and my husband is working 2 jobs, the stress level is high. The only thing that keeps me calm is working on crafts and trying to sell them. This one requirement for a new house, a big craft area, but mostly just a yard for our son to play in, a place where we don’t hear what’s going on upstairs…just a place to call HOME.

  • SherriU

    There seems to be a theme with the lotto….I would love to win so I could help a lot of people close to me and there are so many others that could benefit from it in a good way as well.

  • Sharon

    I don’t have a big dream item for this year. I have everything I want a loving husband, great kids, and grandkids–who are all well and blessed. Merry Christmas to all and remember the most important gift is Jesus.

  • Lori Hinueber

    I would love enough money to give my kids and husband the Christmas that we used to be able to have. I myself, would settle for a few more hours a week to scrapbook or make cards. I have all the stuff, more supplies that I know what to do with, but time is a premium. Oh yeah, and the energy to stay awake for it! Have a great Christmas Megan! I hope Santa gets you a camera!

  • Kim

    Wow, If money were no object, I would love to have a new craft room for Christmas, one that is completely decked out with storage for everything, and lots of table space to work on. At the moment, i have a tiny corner in my bedroom that just doesn’t quite cut it! 🙂
    Hope you get your camera Megan, at least it’s an attainable wish! 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  • Nikki L

    I would love to get a new car for Christmas, but since that is a little expensive, a Cricut Expression 2 would do! I have the original Cricut and would love to upgrade it to a newer model 🙂

  • Christeen Baker

    Well seeing as we are dreaming big I would like the remainder of our small mortgage paid off so that I can leave work and scrap all day. The end is in sight but the patience is thin lol. So maybe I should be asking for more patience.

  • Chris Fretwell

    The big, big wish is a murphy bed so I dont have to sleep on a fold out sofa.
    But that requires lots of savings, so maybe next year.
    I have little that I want for myself, but I’d like to get my twins strider/glider bikes.

  • Katherine A

    I would love to have enough money to retire from my job so I could go visit my daughter and grandchildren who live over half way across the country! I miss them more than I could ever express.

  • Regina

    My big dream is to have the Art Philosophy cartridge. I love all the things I see done with it but right now like everyone else, money is tight. I’m still hoping Santa comes through. I can always dream! Regina

  • Penny

    My big dream is to have a scrapbook room of my own. I share the granddaughters TV room, computer, scrapbook room. My granddaughters come over a lot and like to also do crafts. This would give us more room. I would also like to be able to spend more time at home with my family. I am spread pretty thin some days.

  • stacy Blankenbaker

    My big deam item would be to have my kitchen remodeled (When I dream big, I go all in!). I know this is not something that will happen this year (or even in the next couple of years) but its fun to pick out the paint, accessories, and all that fun stuff on our trips to Home Depot 🙂

  • Lil

    My biggest, but impossible dream is to say Merry Christmas and I love you to my Dad and Mom. Dad died in 1974 and Mom just this past January. So now my 2nd big dream is to pay rent. Being on SSDI it is hard to come up with the money to pay bills and rent and try to buy a present or 2. That won’t happen this year and my 2 sons and sister understand that. My 3rd big dream is to get a new trac fone. That is the best kind for me. It is only $40, but rent comes first. God Bless you and thanks for letting me write what I really want for Christmas. Lil

  • Sarah Joy

    My Dream would be a cruise with my husband to Alaska 🙂 We celebrated out 10th this last summer and had no money at the time to do anything so I would love to have a getaway 🙂

  • Betsy

    Megan ~ your Santa should check out that camera on QVC ~ they have a crazy good price on the bundle right now!
    My dream wish would be a trip to Ireland. My dad’s grandparents came to the U.S. from Ireland, and it was always his dream to go there to find his roots. He passed away in 1999 and never got to make the trip, so I’d like to make it for him. My son got to go there with a People to People group about 15 years ago, and the pictures he took were just beautiful! I’ve been wanting to make that journey for a long time now, so maybe when my hubby retires in a few years we’ll get to do it!
    Hope you get your camera, Megan!

  • Ferne

    I would have to say my big dream would be for my dear husband to start that craft room he has been promising me for 12 + years. We have a large barn on our property that has a hay loft that he keeps talking about turning into my “crafting area” which I would love. I think the reason that he hasn’t started on it is because he’s afraid he would never see me again. :O)

  • TK

    Hmmm… hard! Not because it’s expensive but what’s more realistic – lol! I’d love for my girls to be with me all day on Christmas (one having a baby, one just moved out, and another just got married) and now I gotta learn to share! And if it isn’t that, I’d love to see my best friend in the world — she has gone through an incredibly difficult year. We were best friends, almost like sisters, in high school and then she moved back to Oklahoma from Washington state. Since then (25 years ago), I’ve actually only gotten to see her twice and I STILL call her my best friend… So many miles, so little money and family to boot! Wish I could give her a hug! Now… realistically… I’d just really like a brown winter coat – lol.

  • Ruth G

    My big dream wish list item would probably have to be a Silhouette Cameo. Believe me, I’ve purchase enough things for my Cricut this fall that there’s no way I could ever even think about having one (still need to find a home for my Create that I replaced with an Expression this fall), but you asked for a BIG dream wish list item and I think that’d be it or MAYBE it should be a craft room and a totally clean and uncluttered house so I wouldn’t feel guilty crafting with so much work to do! Now that’s dreaming big!

  • Colleen

    My big wish item this year is a MAC laptop computer and I got it my DH gave it to me early so I could enjoy it thru the holiday season. What a great guy I married!! I hope everyone gets everything they want and thank you for all the great presents you will be sending out to some lucky people!

  • Kierstin Sykes

    I would love to have an SLR camera. I’ve long used a point & shoot, but would love to learn about an SLR and have the ability to take all those amazing shots.

  • Chris

    My big Christmas wish is to have a safe & blessed holiday with my family. Kind of boring, but it’s truly my hearts desire this Christmas!

  • Linda Wall

    I think what I would like the most is the gift of TIME!!!! As much as I love my 3 young grandkids, watching then everyday & working parttime nights and weekends leaves me little time to craft, quilt and sew. I love all the inspiration that you give Megan and I want to do it all. Happy Holidays

  • Terry Gammon

    Megan, I hope you get your camera!! I Love mine!! I really want Santa to bring me all new carpet and paint for my home. I am will Santa to do the work, I just need you to pay the bill. (Hee hee)
    I do want to wish all of the Above Rubys studio staff and family a very Merry Christmas, I hope all your wishes come true!!

  • Laura K

    If Santa were going to bring me something I would want it to be keys to our own house. We have moved every single year when our lease is up because everyone keeps raising our rent and since our income has gone down instead of up we always have to find somewhere cheaper to live. My oldest daughter is eight and she has not started and finished one school year at the same school ever. I just want somewhere we can put down roots and stay awhile. On the plus side I am great at packing and unpacking!

  • keatra

    One thing on my wish list is to take my whole family on vacation., just to visit each other its so expensive to travel and I miss them all

  • Linda

    I readly could not tell you what I want for Christmas besides being able to loss another 20lbs. before Christmas, some Help cleaning my sewing room. (painting and rearanging it. (I sew for weddings besides working). what I would wish for would be to have the money to be able to give my youngest sister ( who home schools) a cricuit.
    Karla, I understand what you are saying about your mother. I will be praying. Took care of my mother for
    15 years. she was in a wheel chair and she was my best friend

  • Eleanor

    I have no big dreams for material things–we had water in our basement for almost 2 years (underground aquifer) which is now dry, cleaned up, mold removed; and we’ve added a laundry room on our home. When the water was there I had to put on a mask, rubber boots and go downstairs to do the laundry. So, I am sooooo happy to have a place to do laundry upstairs. I hope to see my daughter and family (800 miles away) at Christmastime so that will be a wonderful dream come true. Those little grand kiddies are growing up!

  • Michelle Olson

    Like you and many others, I don’t ask for much as I truly feel blessed and content with the love of my four children and husband. I, too, think it would be great to have a new camera to capture all the precious moments in our family. My outdated little unit just isn’t performing like it used to! I have had the chance to try out the T3i and fell IN LOVE instantly! I hope you find it under the tree Megan!

  • Michelle - ya know...your Domestic Damsel

    Hey girl! One of my wishes is also that Canon Rebel!! would love it, w/an additional telephoto lens too! But, yep, just a dream here too.

  • Susan Vitti

    A good camera is an all year gift! preserving memories are gifts for the future. My wish is kinda silly – I would love a diamond ring. When we married 18 years ago I was teaching – my husband bought me a copy machine so I could do my copying at home. I felt I didn’t need a diamond – alas I secretly would love one!

  • karen Campbell

    Well here is hoping that you get your camera….my wish is not for myself but for the people that need a home or food or just a warm shoulder to lean on. For all those that are missing love ones that they have someone special come into this year that will give them reasons to smile again. Also if our servicemen can not all come home keep them safe and let them feel the love that we all have to give them for putting their life on line for us to be free.

  • Jackie B

    I usually don’t ask for much whatever I receive is well appreciated. I would love to win the lottery so that I could own my own home, make sure that my children are financially stable and that I would have enough money for my family’s health needs mainly mine. I thank the Lord for what I have (life).

  • Brenda Letellier

    Oh where to start………If I could choose one big gift I would choose an i pad. or a new digital video camera or a 12 X 12 printer, or a new Rav 4, or ,…..You see where this is going……

  • Kim Hill

    Okay, so I LOVE paper crafts! However, I’m an equal opportunity crafter, so what I would REALLY like for Christmas is a floor loom and a set of wooden, hand-turned crochet hooks. And of course the silk-blend yarn to go with it. 🙂 OR A professional quality, wide format color printer that would allow me to print 12×12 digital pages at home (and preferably laser [as long as we’re dreaming] so that I can do photo transfers more easily on my mixed media projects. *sigh* Such wishful thinking…. 😀

  • bren mano

    My crazy wish list would be the Cricut imagine. Purchased the expression last june and a new cricit machine is not in my budget :(.

  • Catherine Thompson

    My wish is not for me but a friend who’s grandma is dying of colon cancer, and she dreams of going to Graceland before she dies. 75% of my card sales from my craft shows are going to her, and we are doing cookbooks to sell in the community towards her dream!

  • April

    I would love to have a new loveseat or over-sized chair for my living room. I would also love Paper Layerz from ARS! If I could, I would wish my parents alive and well. I sure miss them, especially at Christmas!

    Hope you get at least one of your wishes! If hubby misses this, he is clueless. Ha!

  • Jen R

    I too would like a really nice camera. ( I Know for a fact not gonna happen) Been wanting one for the last couple of years 🙁 But…I have a new granddaughter and I would gladly take more time with her 🙂

  • Jody S

    My biggest wish would be to win the lotto…..I would love to pay everything off, help my children with college and help others! On a more realistic wish list I would love anything scrapping/cricut related.

  • Patricia Pent

    What I would LOVE for Christmas is to spend it with my 3 grandchildren and of course my children, hubby, mom, brother & fam. I will with everyone except for my 3 grandchildren and one of my sons, too complicated to explain, but to be with my grandchildren (especially the 2 older ones whom I don’t get to see). Bring them to my house and you will be my friend for ever!!!
    Hope you get your camera Megan.
    P.S. of course some scrap booking items will be great too! 🙂

  • Jill

    To be honest, I never think big because it just isn’t going to happen. 🙂 I guess an Expression 2 would be the most I would dare ask for, and that is not going to happen either. Oh well. Some cartridges???

  • Candice Carrell

    I too would love a new camera! I have a really old digital and I would love one that takes a much better, crisper picture with good zoom!

  • Allison

    My big request is the Teresa Collins Stampmaker! Or an all wheel drive vehicle for the snowy winter…but we are saving up our money for that one!

  • Kayla

    Hmm, as far as BIG wishes I don’t see happening, i’d really like a Sillouette Cameo or embossing machine and a Kindle Fire.. Hehe! Santa rocks!

  • Cathy Plese

    My BIG wish item is a Ipad or a laptop. In reality just having my family happy and healthy is enough of a gift for me. Happy Holidays!!!

  • Tara D

    I could wish for many things but what I would love to have more than anything is the soldiers deployed right now to be home for Christmas with their families. I ‘adopt’ a few soldiers continuously throughout the year and this time of year is the hardest for them. So if I could fly them all home, even if only for Christmas, I would! We may all complain about our families now and then but when you are so far from home and can’t see them, you realize just how precious being with family at the holidays can be. God bless!

  • Wendy Day

    I haven’t really thought about a wish list. A new camera is always good, but if I were to really dream it would have to be an organized room for all my scrapbooking stuff. I can’t seem to get anything done these days, cause I can’t find anything when I go to find it and I spend all my time looking for it and then putting it all back together to move on to something else. Ugghh LOL

  • Linda

    My BIG dream wish would be a new car. I travel over a 100 miles a day with my job and it sure would be nice to have some reliable transportation.

  • Jan Lynn

    Well I had whished for a new camera for Christmas but then my husband got me a Nikon Coolpix P500 for my birthday in September. You might want to look at it. It is a bit smaller than the Rebel but can be auto or manual and is a bit cheaper too. It does all I want it too. So I guess my big whish is that my family could be all together for Christmas but I know that we are not all going to be able to be here together. I can still whish thought can’t I.

  • patrizia boszko

    a job…it sucks not being able to buy craft stuff…2nd would be a Janone FM 725 embellish machine!

    Health and Happiness to all

  • Bernadette

    My dream wish would be a month long trip visiting a few places in Europe such as Venice, Italy and Athens, Greece and spend the last week on Tahiti. It is very unrealistic, but it is a dream.

  • DianeK

    I would love love love to have a FULL YEARLONG subscription to receive a boxful of monthly crafting stuff from Club Ruby Designers Kit!

  • Pat

    My big wish is a new Honda Accord or CR-V. My old car is a 1996 Camry. It’s been a good car but it looks awful. It has a ba-zillion hail dings in it and the front fender is off because one morning I was going down the road and the car wouldn’t stop until I hit another Camry at a light. The cops were sitting at the cross road and he even said he heard me trying to brake. I just barely hit the other car. I actually hit their trailer hitch on the back but is still cost around $1000 for repairs and a rental for them. I had no insurance to cover my car since it was 11 years old and paid off but I had liability insurance. I was thankful that the police said they heard me braking because no one ever believes that a car wouldn’t stop.

  • Marie Alkire

    I would love to have all the Spellbinders nesting dies AND a year long subscription to Club Ruby Designers Kit……I’m not to greedy am I lol

  • Valerie

    Well, I already got an Imagine. They actually had some left over from Black Friday at Walmart. What I really want for Christmas is something that Santa can’t bring – a grandchild. I guess I’ll just have to find one to adopt.

  • Joan Peters

    Big dream wish for Chrsitams, is to take my entire family (6) to NY city for Christmas and all stay at the Waldorf Astoria, see the RocKettes and just have a really great family time in NY.

  • Madeline Griggs

    I would love to have an Ipad,I don’t really need anything. I just would love to have all our troops come home for Christmas.

  • Tina

    I just want………. the Close to My Heart- Art Philosophy cartridge. You made it look like so much fun! Of course, a Club Ruby kit would be great too. Merry Christmas all!!

  • Jackiedancer

    I would just love to have a new font cricut cartridge. The only one I have is Plantin Schoolbook and would love to have an alternative font.

    Have a great day Megan.

  • Kim Allen

    My big item would be the “4 later” part of my Schacht Baby Wolf Loom! My man has a Canon Rebel and LOVES IT! Hope Santa finds one for you!
    my kemma at gmail dot com


    I WILL TAKE ANYTHING “CRICUT” RELATED! But my dream wish is to have more time to spend doing my crafts. I love Paper crafting so much–it is soothing to the soul–it is like a answered prayer–when I pray for peace–God puts me in that craft room–he knows what I need!!!

  • Linda Jamme

    Ok this will be totally greedy since I really don’t need anything. I would love, if money was no object, a cricut imagine with a bunch of cartridges. I always have problems matching papers for a project and with the Imagine, those problems will be a thing of the past. Sure hope you get the camera you want or at least a good one.

  • cheryl sibilia

    I would love santa to bring me a cricut Imagine. the Grinch stoll my christmas. thats what i really would want. thanks for asking Megan. Have a wonderful day!!

  • Duane

    Yes, a new camra is a must. I got a new Nikon last spring, and took 12867 pictures while on our 33 day trip out west. Now I think I need another new camera (lol).Digital is great. I sure you’ll get your Rebel.

  • Debby Boone

    My Big Wish would be storage for all of the craft stuff that I have been collecting. I now have a craft table and one bookshelf that is overflowing.

  • shelly s.

    My BIG dream wish would be an ABSOLUTELY HUGE dream come true because what I dream of is my own scrap room with plenty of room to grow! Probably not going to happen (unless I win the lottery) but it sure is fun to think about, plan and dream about! Oh the things I could create in such a beautiful space………Thanks for the chance to win great things to create with, too!

  • Janice DuFrenne

    I just got a new camera, not quite the model above, but, with a 30x zoom and 16.2 megapixel, I just LOVE IT! My dream gift is a new laptop, something I don’t have, with a 17″ screen, where I can work on my pix to make fabulous albums!!

  • vickie

    my biggest dream item would be for Jesus to come take all his child home, but since that may not happen then I’d like peace on earth for christmas, real lasting peace. For me I have asked santa for a wireless printer and I have been a very good girl this year.

  • Cydney Fowler

    I wish for a really good camera, but only if it will help me take better photos. I hardly ever post photos of my arts and crafts because I take such lousy photos. I am good with travel and family photos, but the cards and pendants and other glass items I make are difficult to photograph so they look good on the Internet. I have a nice Kodak point and shoot that works okay. I also tried a Sony digital SLR I borrowed from my husband but I don’t really know how to work it except on auto. My birthday is three days before Xmas and DH bought me a new laptop to use in my craft room to update my machines, work on images for the rubber stampmaker and to watch movies or listen to music while I craft. Fun! I can’t wait to get it… Happy Holidays! I hope everyone gets something they wish for be it big or small and wonderful family memories and a joyous holiday no matter what Santa might bring.

  • Jessica B.

    My big gift I would love to get this year is a Asus Tablet so I can work on editing my picture on the go! My second big ticket item is a new camera, I have an slr now but would like one I could just keep in my purse for those moments when we wish we would have brought the big one along but didn’t want to tote it with.

  • Daphne Held

    How can you not already have a good camara!!! I have to say though that I love my little canon point and shoot…

    My big ticket item is new hardwood floor for my scrapping room. I took over my daughter’s old bedroom last year and the carpet is over 20 years old!!!!

  • Mary Solomon

    My special gift would be to have my Graet Granson home for Christmas, he was born premature and needs to gain weight and to be taken off his feeding tube. would that not be the best Christmas present.

  • Maria Alcantr

    One wish come true this Holiday! I received an adorable doggy that my daughter named Flynn! He’s so cute! But one of my crafty wishes is to get a CraftBox and an EZView Desk! A girl can dream…

  • Sandra

    I just got the Cricut Imagine for my Birthday/Christmas (too much $$ for just a birthday 🙂 and I know nothing about it….sooooo… I would love to get your Cricut Imagine A to Z DVD! Now how do I talk my hubby into it??

  • robin breault

    Actually would love a new camera too! Mine is pretty old and I wanted one last year but ended up getting my son a camera so didn’t want to ask for one myself…hmm the coast is clear this year and I have hinted, but I really don’t like to ask. So there are great sales in January, I may have to just get one then, if its not in the cards for mer Xmas morning!

  • debbie

    I would love to get a new camera as well 🙂 it is fun to dream LOL. I would be happy to find any scrapping supplies under the tree though

  • Connie Smith

    If we could really ask for anything I would ask for 2 all expenses paid, round trip tickets to go visit our son in Washington. He is in the Army and stationed at Fort Lewis. He just got back from Iraq in July and still have not seen him. He is on alert right now and will not be able to come home for a whole year from now so the only way we will see him is to fly out to him. I’ve been unable to work for years due to my disability so we know there is no way financially we will be able to go to him. We live so far away (Wisconsin) there is just no way to even drive so for now, it’s text and phone calls. We miss him dearly so that would be the best Christmas present of all. Thanks for the opportunity. It was fun to just dream.

  • betty

    just bought your disc cricut a/zand love it had my cricut for3 yearsand really didn’t know that much about it now with your expert teachingmethod i will be a master at it in no time.i do need a few of the accesories you use i plan to put them on my christmas list especially the zyron sticker machine and most of all the two sprays for the mats. i’ve been thowing out the messy ones and buying new those sprays were an eye opener for me keep up the good work sincerely betty

  • Debbi

    I would love a die cutting machine. It would open new doors for my creativity. I can always dream. I do hope you get your camera. That will open new doors for you. You will have to tell u’s if you get it. Fingers crossed. Xoxo

  • Kim T

    I am with you Megan I would love a new camera, I only have a small point and click camera so would a better one. I hope santa gets to see this list of wonderful gifts we all NEED lol.
    Kim xXx

  • Monica V

    I to would love a better camera or a Silhouette Cameo. Now that my hubby is home after being overseas for 2 years (military family), I am excited to make more memories and record them. (:

  • Maria

    My Big Dream wish would be to have my entire extended family mom, dad, sisters, nieces, grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins and brother in-laws visting my little family in Ohio for Christmas!!! I haven’t had a Christmas with everyone in over 20 years so this would be a dream come true!

  • HollyK

    My big wish is to be able to save enough money to purchase a small home/farm. I am so tired of renting and just want a place of my own…oh and space for a nice crafting room instead of putting my supplies away everytine I scrap.

  • Rosemarie

    Well, if any of you live in NJ, our camera store has events throughout the year where we “buy back” your used camera for cash. We also have a web site and our prices are great if I do say so myself. Check out Oh, and Merry Christmas!

  • Christie Brooks

    Ask what a girl wants??! You will be here til next Christmas reading our lists. I love reading all the comments…I really would like some accessories to make my craft room more usable, like stackable drawers, etc. I have the plastic roller kind, but for we all know that the weight of our goodies surpasses the strength of plastic! I have a Fuji S5000 camera, never had one problem with it. Wishing you lots of fun with that camera…Santa knows you have been good!

  • Karen Via

    My wish for Christmas is peace on earth . But closer to home I want more cut rite paper it realy is just as great as you said! I have been using my Cricut so much more and loveing it thanks . To all HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Karen

  • Maxine

    Well Meagan, there’s one BIG wish I’ve had for years. The house we own is small, the bedroom even smaller. If I had my wish granted it would include adding on so I don’t bump my leg in the middle of the night. I move by feel in the dark to avoid those bruises! Oh, and a sunroom! I love to garden and New England has sooooo many grey days it would be great to have a room surrounded with the outdoors!

  • Terrie McCallister

    I have a small digital camera but my DREAM is to one day have the newest Cannon Rebel with some of the awesome lens for taking professional looking pictures.

  • Dianne Bell

    My BIG wish is for all our troops to come home permanently. So, they too, could be with their families at this wonderful holiday for our Lord or for those who celebrate in other ways. I have my health, my healthy husband and a healthy family. What more can I wish for?

    Merry Christmas to all.

    Dianne Bell –

  • Connie Lewis

    My big wish for Christmas would be peace and unity in my family – that we could all be together again for Christmas like we have in the years past. My mother is now dealing with her 4th cancer and just completed chemo and radiation. She has lost most of her mind due to chemo from her third cancer (lung) speeding up the progress of her dementia. My father died Dec. 13th, 2000 and I have cared for her since then! Things have not been the same :(. I find my solice and refuge in scrapbooking and enjoying anytime I can spend with I have all you DVD’s and love your teaching style! I love that you stand up for your FAITH Megan, always stay strong and God will continue to BLESS you. My prayers are with you as I continue to follow you (daily – if possible). Love, Connie Thanks so much!

  • Cheryl S

    I would love a nice trip with my Husband! He is 52 and has been sick for a long time. We have had a very long and exhausting journey due to his health. Through everything I wouldn’t change anything, I love him very much, but we really need something good about now! Thank for all you share with us Megan, God Bless you!

  • Gayle

    My biggest wish is for my legs to not be so painful when I walk. I’m going to a Dr. today to see if there is anything they can do for me. Scrapbooking these last few years has been a life saver for me. I don’t do many cards because I have so many photos to scrapbook that I really concentrate on scrapbook pages. I appreciate you and your love for scrapbooking and you have helped me a great deal. Best of luck to you and may your wishes all come true.

  • Danelle

    My wish list? A winning ticket to a big lottery prize!! I also would love to try a silhouette or other cutting machine that works with SCAL just to try it out!

  • Therese

    if money were no object, I would like a new car.
    Yes, I know, way over the top, but my car is not big enough to carry all my craft to and from craft camps.

  • Arlene (GrandmaTo5)

    My really BIG wish is for the money to finally finish the house that we started in 2004 and have been living in for a year and a half. In a crafting mode, I wouldn’t mind receiving the the Close to My Heart- Art Philosophy cartridge.

  • Marissa

    I really have all I need, a family, relatively good health, a job, and a roof over my head. So I really don’t “need” anything. But if I had to pick, I would ask for lots of small stuff. Mostly things to craft with! A scor-pal would be really nice!!

  • Judy Spencer

    Well my last wish was to see my grandkids for Christmas….thats the same for a really big present!! I guess the next really big wish for a big gift would be to have an organizer come to my house,,and just deal with all my stuff… yarn(I’m a knitter) fabric(I’m a sewer/quilter) paper/scrapbook stuff Cricut etc…

  • Lisa LeMay

    A Christmas family trip to Disney World!! My parents took my sisters and I to Disneyland for Christmas-twice! It was the BEST thing!!!! All the moments together being kids–it was a DREAM!!! My hubby has never been and so we want to take our children to Disneyland AND Disney World, (with a Disney cruise thrown in), when they are old enough to enjoy every moment AND remember them! Disney is the ultimate in family time well spent to us. It is something i dream of sharing with my husband and children! (I am praying really REALLy hard!!!) Take care! 😀

  • Sandy W

    My big dream is very selfish, but I will admit I hate the neighborhood I live in. I would love to have a real house in a quiet area with sober and drug free neighbors. Of course, I want to take my studio and wood shop with me. LOL!

  • Christie Harris

    My BIG Christmas gift on my wish list is to renovate a spare bedroom in my house into a craft room! Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a dream of a craft room where I can go and escape into my Crafting Heaven! I think every great crafter should have a haven that inspires great crafting ideas!!!

  • Jennifer

    My BIG wish would be to be able to go back to school to become a midwife and have my husband be able to find a job that would support us while I do that… and if that can’t happen, then at least I wish I could find a job that I LOVE, and that would pay the bills!

  • Sew Sweet N Crafty

    You know, if you would have asked me last month I would have said a brand new car, but after this past week having my Aunt’s health suddenly spiral down hill from cancer and moved to hospice all I want to receive for Christmas is recovery and a miracle for her to be healed of cancer and be herself again. I’m praying.

  • Christi Fillhard

    If I were to be able to receive a bigger Christmas gift this year, I would wish for a Cricut Imagine as I think I would really like one of them but we spend the money on our children instead of each other and we keep our gifts small.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Andrene

    OK this one is hard – my bucket want list is very long!!! I would love a one story cabin in the mountains with a stream running thru the property and lots of land so I cant see my neighbors – a place of total solitude when I need it.

  • Megan Elizabeth Post author

    Thanks so much for Participating in our FUN Days of Giveaways – Contest Entry Period is now closed and I hope to see you again at for lots more fun in the future! THANKS and Enjoy the Moments! <3 Megan
