The Universal Wish List

Were you hounded on Thanksgiving for your holiday lists by family members? Or maybe you were the eager beaver asking for lists. Either way Amazon.com has a wonderful new button that allows you to add items from all over the web to your Amazon.com Wish List.

Go to the Universal Wish List page and drag the Add to Wish List icon into your browser. When you are at any website and see something you'd like simply click on the icon and a window will pop up asking if you wish to add the item to your Amazon.com Wish List.

Take a look over your Etsy favorites, add a few to your Wish List and support the handmade community. Have a nephew into vinyl figures or an aunt who collects vintage china? Send them the Universal Wish List link and get that list back without any need to drive or Google. And if you have a favorite rubber stamp, there's even a place in the pop up window to place your personalized text.

Happy listing making!

The Pumpkin Fairy

This idea comes courtesy of Laura Donkel, a Chicago Waldforf teacher, and is a wonderful solution to the mountain of Halloween candy in your house.

Set your excess candy in a bowl outside by your jack-o-lanterns at night for the Pumpkin Fairy. During the night the Pumpkin Fairy will take the candy to help grow next year’s pumpkins. Pumpkins love sugar! In the morning the candy will be gone and she will have left a small thank you gift in its place, such as a book, a stuffed animal or some arts and craft supplies.

The Pumpkin Fairy could continue with the theme of their Halloween costume. If they haven’t had enough of being a pirate, a cowgirl or robot, then the Pumpkin Fairy could leave a small telescope, a stuffed pony or a book about planets. 

It’s a lovely and healthy way to celebrate Halloween. 
Thank you Laura!
