2008 Christmas/Birthday List

Okay, I’m gonna let you guys in on a little secret of mine…even though I’m 33…I still write a Christmas List. No, I don’t send the letter North via the Post Office to Santa to take a gander at and hopefully, if I’ve been lucky enough not to be on the “Naughty List,” for him to delivery me all the goodies I’ve asked for. My list is strictly for friends and family, and now for the first time, I’m sharing the list with the rest of you. So every year I write my Christmas/Birthday Wish List. Since New Year’s Eve is my Birthday, I just combine the two into one complete dossier. My thought is, if someone’s going to get you a gift, you might as well let them know what you want and need. Over the years it’s become some what of an annual tradition of sorts. Now I don’t want you thinking that I’m greedy. I don’t expect to get everything on the list or to even get anything off of it. It’s really more of a goof then anything else. I enjoy putting it together and seeing people’s reactions when the printed copy gets passed around. Funny thing is, this year my 13 year old niece even took it to school and showed it off to some of her friends…unfortunately, they did not get me a gift this year…maybe next.

In this Post It Post I wanted to show you some of the Post It drawings that I used when I put together the 2007 edition and a sample of what the final pages looked like. However, first I didn’t want my Birthday to pass without me making some mention of it. I turned 33 this year and in honor of that I wanted to ask Frosty the Snowman for a very special birthday wish.

As a side note, The Frosty Post It note drawing was the last drawing that I did in ’08. The latter three drawings were sketched up while at work during several of my much talked about moments of boredom. When it came time that year to start composing my Christmas/Birthday List, I had to look no further than my little yellow stickies.

Below are three sample pages from the 2007 list. The items on the list have been blurred out due to the fact that the info is now outdated.

I liked how the list came out so for 2008, I decided to keep the basic layout, add new art, and update the items on the list and PRESTO…the latest edition to be read and enjoyed by all!

Now you are at no obligation to buy me a belated Christmas or Birthday gift, but…if you somehow feel compelled to do so, either out of a last moment burp of Christmas Spirit or out of a strong desire to congratulate a 33 year old for his day of birth…there are still plenty of items on the list to choose from. As you can see, there are also quite a few outrageous items at the end of the list as well to take a look at.

Enjoy and look forward to the 2009 Christmas/Birthday List later this year…being that it’s January…much later this year!
