Holiday Nook Color Dreamin..

Yes I admit it! NĂºmero Uno on my Holiday Wish list is Nook Color!

I'm in lust w this gadget! I have a Nook WiFi I got back in July (Luav it too!) but this is Nook on Hormones! Itz color, runs android (getting update to 2.2 Jan!) you can read magazines, surf Internet, use it as cookbook, view PDF craft books (need colour 4 this!), has built in night light (LCD) and B & N are going to have a slew of apps coming out next year for it! PS Pandora (which I also Luav) is a app on Nook Color!

Since I'm workin on Minimalist living I may sell my Nook WiFi, if my wish comes tru that is.

Although it takes up little room fa sure! I just don't need two eReaders!

Only thing is Nook Color is like a Laptop/IPad u can't read it outside in sun & I do likey to read outside (Nook eInk is gre8t 4 that!)
Decisions, Decisions!!!

What do want really I mean really for Xmas?

World peace, peeps getting along seeing w heart not head! I mean that would b da best gift ever!!!!!

Personally I don't real need much! I would like a Nook Color but itz not necessary like I'll die w/o it!

Toe socks to wear w my flip flops. Sunglasses that r reading glasses. B & N gift card (ebooks for my regular Nook), Michaels gift card (or Joanns), Nordstroms Rack gift card.

If I got Toe socks, sunglass readers & $30 B&N gift card that would be kewl!

Happier & more satisfied I am less I want! It really is inside job!

Holiday 2010 Dream Book

After working on & off on this, tearing put pages, redoing the cover I think it's finally done!

For me it's more cre8tiv ideas, yummy recipes 4 sweetz, and blingalingaling! Alot of the ideas are from past & present Martha Stewart Living Mags. But also vintage Mags, Crafty Holiday Mags & more. Accumulation of a years worth of selectively collecting what caught my eye! I put it on our chalkboard coffee table & look thru it daily as I listen to Pandora Radio Holiday Rat Pack Music!

I used Handmade Christmas by Martha Stewart hardcover book.
I pulled out pages & kept some for the ideas. That was back drop. I tore out alot of pages from the various mags I had & glued then in the book just like that! I didn't want it too clean, purfecct lookin!
