Favorite Books

I like YA fiction, historical fiction, some classics, and a bit of horror/mystery, but I'm open to most genres just so long as they have good story lines and interesting characters. Some of my favorite books are: East of Eden by Steinbeck - Black Swan Green by David Mitchell - Harry Potter - Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier - Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - The Hunger Games - The Gemma Doyle trilogy - The Diviners by Libba Bray - The Sky is Everywhere by Jandi Nelson

  • Disney

  • Captain America

  • Game of Thrones

  • Bates Motel

  • Punisher

I love coffee, tea, dark chocolate and salty snacks. I like trying unusual treats from different countries. Luckily I don't have any allergies! While I like most flavors, I do not care for: chamomile or cardamom tea, white chocolate, or things with lots of artificial flavorings.

Comment: Thank you for the 2 note cards (I use them up so quickly). Please remember a square envelope -- which you made so very nicely by the way -- takes more postage. I had to pay .21 to get this letter.

Comment: Thank you for the notecard and washi! Things got a little too hectic so I took a break from week 3 of the letters. Not sure if week 4 is happening, either.

Comment: I love the way you sent this! Beautiful postcard! Lovely paper! Snow White was my mom's favorite cartoon so it is very special to me. I love the paper too. Thank you for the extras. Have a great day. I'll have to check out the museum. I just left Vegas on Friday!

Comment: Thank you for the pretty postcard!
Comment: Thank you and Happy New Year :)
Comment: Thank you for coming back to make up for this swap and even though I said you could do any theme that's easy for you, you did a Disney themed and I really appreciate your effort! Previous comment left because I didn't receive anything: I'm really sorry to be rating a 1, but unfortunately I did not receive this swap from you. After a few messages back in May and I agreed to wait further, the messages I've sent you in June and the recent one in July were unread. I'll certainly change the rating if I receive anything for this swap.
Response: Hi shelly, I recently moved so I haven't had time to log in to swap-bot and check messages. I'm really sorry this swap got lost in the mail. I actually posted a photo of it to IG, so I can assure you I made & posted it! :( I'll message now to see about making it up.

Comment: Awesome! I love the box and all of the Outlander and Scottish goodness in it. I've never had thistle tea! I really love everything. It was such a fun package to unwrap and explore. Thank you!
DaisyTX rated for Disneyland Pocket Letter on May 10, 2015
Comment: Thank you for the cute pocket letter! Very fun!
Comment: Okay. I would just like to preface this with the fact that I haven't done a Fandom Bag swap in a long time because the first/last one I did was terrible. It was all junk and didn't reflect what I said I liked at all so I was very nervous to join another swap but OH. MY. WORD. This swap was perfection. I was literally grinning from ear to ear as I opened it! First of all the box is INSANE! I will definitely be keeping it around and I LOVE that it looks like dragon scales! The pins are so great! Robb and Jon are SO pretty! Oh and I love the stickers! The tea smells AMAZING! I can't wait to try it! OKAY AND SERIOUSLY. The embroidery hoop you made is SO GOOD! I wish I could give you a million stars because this swap is SO lovely! Thank you!
Response: 😃😃😃 Hooray!! I am so happy you love the box!! I was in love with every piece of it and put a lot of thought into it, and I am so pleased it made you happy ❤️ It's terrible when you get something disappointing in large swaps like this (it's happened to me too) so I'm extra glad this one is making up for your past sad swaps. The embroidery hoop was my first one, and honestly I can't believe how good it turned out, haha. I will probably never get another to look so good. And I hope the tea tastes as good as it smells!! Thanks for your rating and kind words, xxx
