My Birthday Wish List

My birthday is in 11 days! Ahhhh! It's coming up so quickly. I used to count down to my birthdays and get super excited for them, but since I got pregnant, I just haven't cared all that much. I even had to look up how many days away my birthday was just now. So weird, right??

Just because I haven't been as excited about the day itself doesn't mean that I haven't had a wish list of some kind every year. And this year is no different.

This year, most of the items on my birthday wish list are scrapbooking related... this is pretty much what my Christmas wish list looked like too. My brother drew my name for our gift exchange this year, and he ended up having to get me some paper punches and thickers. Haha! I was super excited though!

I can guarantee you that I will not be receiving most of these, buuuuuut this year, here are some things that I'm hoping for:

This is my dream present. I've been wanting one of these for awhile. I love all the beautiful cuts that people do with them, and I think it would be SO fun to add them to my pages!

2. ink pads

I'm quickly becoming an ink pad junkie so I'm always on the lookout for new ones to try. Right now, these Hero Arts Shadow Inks look really great to me. Especially, the soft purple and this Early Spring cube pack

So pretty. Sometimes I think I just want to buy color instead of the actual product. Does that even make sense??

3. the moon

a bday wishlist 1

Cecily is really reallllllly into the moon so I've started to love all types of moon stuff as well. This necklace is so pretty, and I love that it reminds me of my girl.

And I really like this moon and stars punch too.

EK tools punches are my favorite. Since punches are typically pretty bulky, I love how compact these are.

4. the Kallax from Ikea

a bday wishlist 2

This is the one item on my list that I know I'll be getting this year. The Kallax replaced the Expedit recently, and it's super great for scrapbooking storage because of the dimensions of the cubbies. An organized workspace is super essential for me or I get overwhelmed. And since I only have a little sectioned off area of the living room to work with, I've had to be really smart about storage and organization. I'll do a blog post one of these days on the things that have worked for me... once I finally finish that is!

I could keep going and going and going with this wish list because there's always a new line or product that I'd love to try, but I'll stop here! Maybe I'll make this a monthly thing to share some of the new products that have caught my eye!

P.S. This is by no means a sponsored post, but some of the links throughout are affiliate because they're things I genuinely love. :)
