About Me

My name is Ashley and I'm a college student and writer. I'm 20 years old and I live in southern California.

I am usually open to private swaps - just send me a message!

I do not smoke, but I do have a cat. I try my best to keep him out of the craft closet, and I promise not to send him to you!

I reuse packaging.

Favorite Movies

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Across the Universe, American Beauty, Juno, Singing in the Rain, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

I like Alexander Skarsgard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Evan Rachel Wood, Seth Rogan, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

TV shows: Gossip Girl, Hoarders, True Blood, The Office, Friends, Family Guy, South Park, Big Love, Weeds

Favorite Books

I read a lot. My tastes in books are broad. I will give anything a chance, but I prefer fiction in general, usually with elements of romance.

Book series I like: Sookie Stackhouse - Charlaine Harris Princess Diaries - Meg Cabot Stephanie Plum - Janet Evanovich

I love family sagas even if they are cheesy, kind of like V.C. Andrews.

I collect Sweet Valley High, Baby-sitters Club, and R. L. Stine books. If you have any you don't need, I'm happy to have them!

Favorite Music

Tegan and Sara, Snow Patrol, Sarah Blasko, Florence and the Machine, Panic! at the Disco, The Beatles, Bright Eyes, Paramore, Lady Gaga, Metric, and Kings of Leon, MGMT

I really love alternative rock and music with a dance beat. I love remixes and cover songs.

Comment: HAHAHA My favourite card so far "This is not what you promised. You promise jam. This is jelly." And "A top hat made of duct tape." - if I have to re-write a part of my story to fit those in, I will. Fabulous work! Thanks so much!
Response: I am so glad that you like the cards! It was so much fun to make them! Good luck and happy writing!

Comment: Hi Ashley - I really enjoyed your letter. I'll send you a letter back soon. It is a small world isn't it. Who is your family here in Fallon? I work at the local high school doing computer work.
Response: It really is a small world. When I receive your letter I'll tell you all about family!

jennschales rated for My Favorite Book Series on Jan 22, 2010
Comment: I've read the series and I too love it! You're right...its not that its such an intellectual read, but something about it hooks you! I love Sookie! Do you watch the series?
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful stocking! I read your card and I can't wait to open my stocking. I'm going to try and wait a while, but I don't know if I will make it until Christmas! Have a great holiday!
MARY rated for Book of the Month (November) on Dec 1, 2009
Comment: You...perhaps unknowingly...selected the perfect book for me! I do like biographies, but this one is extra special because I am a diabetic (so I think this will be inspirational for me) and I was the Company Manager for a professional ballet company (and I am looking forward to the dance part of this). Sometimes the right book comes along at the right time. Thank you for helping it!
Comment: L. J. Smith is a great writer! Thanks.
