For years it was nothing but Stephen King and Dean Koontz but I am expanding to psychological thrillers now too. I always find the book is better than the movie, but still have high expectations when I do decide to check out the movie too, only to be disappointed. As time permits, I try to get through at least 1 book every month.
Again with the horror theme, although so few have made me feel the horror. Also action and thrillers too.. and the occasional Disney one as well. Jason Statham, yes I'm a big fan. Definitely not into the girly dramas at all, but since hubby is, I've seen more than I care to admit to. The last few years I've found myself enjoying watching movies at home, with the freedom to chill out in my pjs and pause the movie as I wish. Sometimes technology is great.

Really, I'm not much of an avid crafter (although I keep buying more supplies) --except in the kitchen (if cooking counts as a craft). Used to do scrapbooking but not enough time/ambition now, so I use my supplies and skills to decorate outgoing mail or add little surprises to my letters. I am however totally inspired by all the amazing skill and craft ideas being presented here and want to explore that creative side again. I really enjoy the junk journal styles. For those who know, I do swap slams on a regular basis. I've been penpalling on an international scale for over 30 years now and enjoy travelling to meet the friends I've made through this hobby.
Moved from the big city to become a farm girl. Loving the different pace of life, being my own boss, and enjoying the quiet and open space. The long hours are so rewarding knowing we're helping to feed the world. I'm very calm and easy going by nature, love to send letters and notes all over the world to learn about different places/perspectives/ideas, and just enjoy the little things in life. It's tough enough out there without adding your own stress to the mix. Fun mail totally makes my day!
I might have a slight mail addiction. I'm a stickler for deadlines and just love sending mail, so know that my items will always go out on time. That being said if you don't receive your items in a timely manner, please let me know because something obviously went wrong after I sent it on its merry way. I will happily resend so you aren't left hanging. We all know the postal system isn't perfect. We also have our specific likes and dislikes, even ways of interpreting the same ideas. I will never mark you down if you met the swap requirements. I am happy you took the time to invest in the swap and fill my mailbox with something interesting. I am very patient and know that mail service takes time, especially with the recent changes thanks to covid. I will mark my items as received within 24 hours of it arriving.
