Favorite Books

To Kill a Mockingbird, Brave New World, Anna Karenina, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Hobbit. 📖

Favorite Television

I am not a very huge television person though I have watched all of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and am currently working on Reign. I don't have cable so I watch whatever they have on Netflix for the most part! I sometimes go many weeks at a time without one single bit of television! I didn't own one for many years of my adult life but I have come to enjoy the above mentioned shows.

Favorite Movies

Movies that I REALLY like: The Sound of Music, Grease, Bridges of Madison County, A Beautiful Mind, Forrest Gump, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Crimson Peak. 📽 I actually don't typically love horror movies but Crimson Peak is just beautiful cinematography to me!

Additional Info

Most of my craftiness is based around the realm of paper though I've tried my hand at many different crafts over the years! I've really loved paper of all sorts since I was a little girl! I've been doing snail mail activities since I was about 11 which started with corresponding with pen pals. I love anything such as mail art, postcards, fun mail swaps and the like--that is about where my craftiness sits these days but perhaps soon I will be inspired to do some others! I'm just really a huge nerd for opening my mailbox and seeing something addressed just to me--that makes me happy! I enjoy mailing things to others and imagining that they must have the same feeling when it arrives to them! I believe in putting my heart into anything that I do! ❤️

Dislikes

This is so difficult for me as, honestly, I have a major passion for learning and living as full of a life as I possibly can so for me that equals there not being too many things that I truly and really dislike so let me "dig deep" and get a little creative and come up with a few! Here goes:

gory horror films

durian fruit

black licorice

Important

Important: PLEASE let me know if you have not received something from me after a reasonable period of time. Please keep in mind that mailings to certain countries can take 30 to 60 days! I would not have flaked on a swap and if you haven't received it then it was lost and I will GLADLY send it again! Please also note that I do diligently rate all swaps that I have received and typically on the day that they are received about 99% of the time--the other 1% is reserved for the case that my day just got too hectic which might cause me to rate it the following day or it could be that I was traveling in which I will mark that somewhere here on my profile if I am pending receipt of anything! So, in other words, if I haven't rated it then I haven't received it! Thank you so much for reading! ❤️

Comment: Such a pretty PC, thank you very much. I was getting Christmas cards from different countries where it’s summertime there, and I never thought of it until this point that they have Christmas in summer which just seems so strange to me. It was hard enough being in LA in December once and seeing flowers, trees, green grass, Christmas lights and Santa Claus! you being from snow country must understand what I am saying. I sure wouldn’t miss the snow, I do not enjoy snow and I’m getting tired of cold weather. Have a great day and thanks for the card.
Response: Hi Bonnie! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a rating with a heart! <3 I will say what I definitely don't miss is...shoveling my car out of the snow in the super early AM hours of the morning! I could go without ever having to do that again! Heh! I do understand though--I was so excited when we moved to Texas some years back...to not be freezing my way through each winter any longer! Wishing you and yours the merriest of Christmases!
