Favorite Music

I am still listening to the same music I grew up with...oldies but still the best! I am a huge Rod Stewart fan and have seen him up close and personal in concert four times. I also love Journey, Josh Groban, Elton John, Neil Diamond,Stevie Nicks,Keith Urban,Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Tina Turner, Laura Branigan, Abba, and am still an Osmond fan at heart!

Favorite Books

Reading is my passion! I adore it and would have my nose stuck in a book all day long if I could! Not only do I enjoy reading the old fashioned way...I also love listening to audio books. My favorite authors are Nora Roberts, J.A.Jance, Stuart Woods,Laura Childs, Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark, Leslie Meier, Debbie Macomber, Stephen King,Kate Collins, Sue Grafton, Janet Evonovich, James Patterson, Christine Feehan, Carolyn Keene,Robyn Carr, Sherryl Woods,Marilyn Ross and much more. Some of my very favorite books are the "cozy" mysteries!

Favorite Television

I'm not a huge TV fan but I am loyal to some shows. I have been watching "General Hospital" for over 40 years now. I also really enjoy The Good Doctor, Bob Hearts Abishola, FBI, Last Man Standing, Big Sky, The Connors, The Rookie, Supernatural and CSI -Vegas. I love the older shows on DVD and have quite a collection of those. My most favorite ones that I enjoy watching over and over are Bewitched, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Murder She Wrote, Charmed, Everybody Loves Raymond, Ghost Whisperer, The King of Queens, Diagnosis Murder, CSI, Friends, Emergency and Dark Shadows.

Magazines

I love magazines, especially all the ones geared at women. I'm always buying one here and there and my favorites are Woman's Day, Family Circle, Ladies Home Journal, Taste of Home, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Woman's World, First, People, Oprah, All You, Redbook,Dr. Oz, Soap Opera Digest and alot of the cooking magazines.

I am also a huge Halloween fan! My fascination began when I was just a kid and loved dressing up in costume and going through the neighborhood with my friends "trick or treating." When I grew up and got married, two of my kids were born in October...one on the 17th and another on the 30th...just 27 minutes away from midnight. When they were growing up we always had Halloween themed birthday parties! When my daughter turned 16 we had a "Sweet 16, Halloween" party for her and it was amazing! We decorate our house and yard with everything Halloween and we usually start in mid-August! I love the stickers, the stationery, the decorations, smells, colors and mood of Halloween!

Things I Like

Any kind of stationery - the old fashioned letter kind or computer stationery of any kind

Postcards of scenic things, especially state map post cards

Stickers

Candles - spicy kind, not flowery

Bubble bath or body wash

Souveniers from your state in exchange for something from my state...especially T-shirts and refrigerator magnets

Journals...any size, shape, color, texture, lined

Pretty or cute blank notecards

Anything dealing with Snoopy, Thomas Kinkade

Cat figurines or cat related items

Scrapbook supplies

Snowmen items

Disney items, especially those pertaining to Beauty and the Beast

Things I Dislike

Kiddie type stickers or stationery

Confetti

Not a fan of washi tape

Ribbon

Ratings

Attention to hosts...I received a recent one rating from a person who was on Swapbot for a month and a half. She apparently didn't receive a Christmas card and without any communication to me rated me a one...my first in 12 years. When I contacted her and mentioned this was not the way Swapbot worked, she called me a miserable witch and deleted her account. I offered to resend and am taking this up with the Administration but until it is resolved please don't judge or ban me on this. All my other partners for this swap received their cards and gave me 5's and hearts. I work hard at sending good quality swaps and my good ratings speak for themselves. It is just extremely unfair when someone just slaps a bad rating on you without a chance or second thought.

Comment: Hey there Denise! Nice to have had for a partner! Thanks very much, for the Map PC and your Christmas list. Sounds like, you made out like a bandit on gifts. Especially tickets to a Beach Boys concert & a room at a hotel with dinner. How nice is that! I hope it was awesome fun for you & your hubby. My hubby would love to see Beach Boys! He would be going alone. Because I'm not a fan of them. My big gift I got for Christmas, was a new dishwasher from my youngest son. Our old one went 3 years ago & couldn't afford another one. But I'm in heaven now & I love it so much !

Comment: I received the resend today! Thank you! The postal machines did try to ruin it. Paper on the address side was scraped to the point of peeling, but the important stuff was still there. THANK YOU!!

Comment: I read about 100 books a year too! This year, oddly, I spent more time reading (at least it feels like I did), but ended up with fewer than 100 books for the first time in many years. I wonder if I read some longer things, like the "Outlander" series, which take me a month to get thru. I love Liane Moriarty. Have you read her newest yet - "Apples Never Fall" yet? Man! I did NOT see the twists coming that that one!! I will have to check out some of your other titles. Also, I love your Snoopy Typewriter card - I have many typewriters and love to use them.
Response: I just received my reserved copy of Apples Never Fall from the library and am on Chapter 8. I love this author as she always has a few surprises up her sleeve!

Comment: Very much going to be checking out the top 5. I don't think I have ever read a James Patterson book...Are they really that good? I know he's popular but I just never had the yes, lets feel.

Response: What???? This is the first I heard that you didn't receive this!! Why the one? I will gladly resend it. Did you not see all my 5 ratings with hearts for this same swap? This is very unfair. This person rated me a one without any communication and when I contacted her about it she called me a miserable witch and deleted her account. I did send this swap and offered to resend it but now I am stuck with a very unfair one!
