christmas goodies week: wish list

Welcome to Christmas Goodies Week!

christmas goodies week

I have been spending some time listening to Christmas music {against my not-til-thanksgiving rule} and putting together an assortment of printables that will help you organize, decorate and make your holiday packages pretty.  Each day I’ll have something new, so be sure to come back {or you can subscribe via email and get the posts directly to your inbox. Just enter your email address over there on the left}.


For this first printable, I created two wish lists.

These are great to jot down gift ideas for yourself {add an item as it pops into your head to avoid coming up with things you’d like on the spot}.



Or, if you have kids, I have an even better use.

Do your kids have the ‘I wants’? Mine do. Especially while watching Saturday morning cartoons or walking through the aisles of Target.

A wise mom once suggested that the best way to deal with this is to have a list ready. When one of my munchkins falls in love with a new toy and just has to have it, we write it down on their list. It allows me to not have to say no so much and lets them compile their wishes – however unrealistic they may be.


I have printed a list for each of my kids and we keep them on the refrigerator.


Works like a charm.


You’ll find these wish lists in THE ARCHIVE along with all of our best free prints, templates and fonts.  If you are not an Archive member, simply add your email to the list and you’re in!

    These are so gorgeous! I can’t seem to find them in the archive though, have they been taken down? Could you please share them again?

      Try refreshing your archive page (sometimes it gets saved to your computer and doesn’t show updates). It will be in the christmas section!

    Thank you for the Christmas downloads. I’m trying to get ready for this year and would love to use there lists. When I try to download them I’m told the site is not available. Since they were from last year am I too late to download them?

    Thank you so much for these. They are so cute and so very usable! I have the same ‘Not before Thanksgiving’ rule and I’m breaking it too, this year!! Thanks again, you are so generous.

    ok! I was about to say the SAME thing! You’re handwriting is AMAZING! Did you teach yourself to write like that? Do tell? My handwriting is in need of some DRASTIC improvement! :)

  8. Sarah K November 14, 2011 at 6:47 pm #

    OK. Let me just say that after this post and your thanksgiving post, I am SO jealous of your AMAZING handwriting. It is gorgeous, cute, artistic, spunky, and classy all at the same time. *and those are only a few of the words that came to my mind.*

    So pretty! Can’t wait to see what lovelies you’ve created! :) I started taking pictures of items my girls found at various stores. We would say we’re adding it to their wish list. I just recently emailed the more practical pics to the grandmas. So easy! :)

    Eeeeee! It’s like you’re Oprah, “You get a free print out, you get a free print out!” I’m really excited for all the goodies! Love it!!! Thank you and I hope you have such a fun time this Holiday season! :)

    FANTASTIC! Thank you so much. We are overflowing with ideas and wants at our house. It will be nice to have a {pretty} place for them to go.

    Do you mind telling me what card stock you use for your printing? I have purchased several different ones since signing up for jdc monthly but it never looks nearly as nice as when you print something for me. Is there a specific one you really like?

    Thanks again for the lists. I am as thrilled about this week as my kids are about Christmas. Truly!

      I print on thick white linen paper {sundance linen 110 lb from neenahpaper.com}. I also like the 300gsm luxe from paper source.
