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 so this covers about 110% of what I watch but I'm totally up to date on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals and currently making my way through the second season of Reign. I have a guilty pleasure of sometimes watching music competition shows such as The Voice, American Idol and America's Got Talent. I also sometimes watch the international versions of these types of shows. I don't have cable so everything has to occur on Netflix or YouTube or some free internet TV channel site. 📺 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, Twilight, 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 mark my items as sent after I have dropped them in the mailbox so if this occasionally happens to be after the mail has been picked up for the day or on a Sunday or a postal holiday then the postmark date should be the next postal business day. Thank you for reading!

Comment: Hi Christina! Unfortunately it wasn't me who you previously sent mail to via the Postcrossing forum. Some of my postxing friends have suggested I try it, but I get so consumed with Swap-bot, haha! Anyway, thank you for the postcard of the San Antonio Riverwalk. It looks like a lot of fun!!
Response: Really?! That is so odd--I really thought I had sent you something on there before! I'm probably just getting all confused--hah! Well...thank you either way for taking the time to leave me a rating with a heart and I'm glad you enjoyed the postcard! <3

Comment: Dear Tita Christina! Finally, I got your ballet card! It has been a long while since I got a ballerina card. Have I mentioned that you got awesome handwriting? ;) I wonder where did you got this card? Hmmm... I look forward for your story! Cheers, Abigail
Response: Aww...thank you so much Abigail for your compliment! Well...I have had that card in my drawer for a very long time actually so I cannot recall too many details but I feel that I honestly probably once got that from someone in perhaps China that sent me an envelope of blank postcards. I've exchanged and written letters and postcards off and on for many years though I only collect written postcards so if I get something blank then it goes in my "blank postcards" drawer and I do eventually use them! I often don't know what to do with ones from other countries but that one seemed perfect for you! I'm glad you liked it!

You are welcome! Thank you for the note.

Thank you for the lovely postcard you sent me for the "Postcard Roulette Inter. #3". I'm glad to know you are a cat lover like me :)

Thank you for the neat postcard you sent for this swap, Lots of Postcards." I enjoyed reading your note and am jealous of where you are going this summer for your trip. I like postcards sent in envelopes when they are blank. If you write on them you can just send them naked. Your handwriting is absolutely beautiful. It is great that you have been to NM and you have visited some great spots. Thanks again for the postcard.
