Favorite Music

Updated August 2018

Hi there. Although I'm not on the site everyday anymore, I'm still active.

I'm artistic and I now live in Texas after calling Virginia home for 30+ years. I've been swapping since 2004, and found out about this site on 2.22.07 and have been swapping here since then.

My first name is Felicia.

Please: Nothing edible in swap packages (exceptions being specific to a swap). I'm on a very restrictive diet.

My favorite colors include blues, golds and purples.

I love flowers (the iris is my favorite), nature (I'm a master naturalist), books, water (sea, ocean, rain), Asian culture, hearts, tigers and traveling. I write fiction, poetry and essays, I paint (watercolor), and quilt (by hand). I have a thing for handbags and tote bags. Bible art journaling and Zentangle are new obsessions.

Every November, I participate in National Novel Writing Month. The challenge is to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. So I'm usually scarce around the site, except in the NaNoWriMo Swapping group.

I'm a voracious reader and love things related to books and tea (i.e. notecards, teapots, stickers, etc.)

I collect letter openers and blue & white porcelain.

My crafting style eclectic and artsy simply because I'm willing to try almost anything at least once.

I love to read, travel and listen to music, and I enjoy puzzles (all kinds from crosswords and word searches to mystery and thriller novels), game shows, board games ... and swapping!

Favorite Music

mellow jazz, blues, instrumental, Celtic, gospel, Bossa nova

Favorite Movies

comedies, romantic comedies, and old romantic movies (preferably in black and white for those)

Favorite Television

I like 'em dead, laughing, cooking or playing games/challenges. :) So that would translate to: NCIS (love Gibbs!), Meet the Press, Washington Week, various cable news stations, Chopped, Project Runway, Top Chef, Fixer Upper, Pose on FX, game shows and late-night TV monologues.

Favorite Crafts

Bible art journaling, painting, scrapbooking, quilting, dotee dolls, assorted other papercrafts, including ATCs and Zentangle.

Because writing is a craft, I'll list it again here. :)

I enjoy receiving ATC, card and/or dotee kits or creating them for people.

I love making, buying and receiving bookmarks. (I usually have about four books going at a time -- a thriller or mystery, a romance, a self-help and an inspirational or faith-based work.)

Wish List/Flat Mail Wishlist

Big Ticket wish list:

  • worldwide eradication of zika and ebola

  • a major, breakout book contract

  • Mont Blanc fountain pen

Basic wish list:

  • U.S.presidential campaign buttons! ANY party, any year. (Every four years on the second Tuesday in November, I put on a vest and then ALL of my campaign buttons.) Would love any from this election cycle.

  • books about creative writing or writing

  • for Christmas swaps: I like the blue/white Christmas color theme; would LOVE for some items to be for my Mom (see below)

  • gorgeous stationery (for letters, not note cards)

  • Gift cards (noted below in Flat wish list area)

  • Screw or clip-on earrings

  • Wrapped and labeled surprises for my Mom (see below)

  • Pin back buttons about writing, tea, humor, political campaigns (any party/any year)

  • NaNoWriMo swag

  • Profile surprises!

  • Scarves

  • Ink pens (preferably blue ink; hearts for Zebra, Tul, or Cross brands)

  • A copy of the newspaper from your town/city

  • Did I mention profile surprises?!

Flat mail wishlist items for specific swaps:

COUPONS: Dove products (soaps, body wash, etc); Ivory Snow soap; EAS Advantage protein (shakes, bars); Atkins proteins.

FLATS: I enjoy bookmarks, articles/essays about fiction writing and the creative process, maps, postcards from/about where you live, inspirational or sassy quotes and stickers (especially stickers related to writing, books, reading or tea -- but no actual tea, please -- UNLESS IT'S SPECIFIC TO A SWAP OR FOR TEA IS LOVE GROUP swap/activity).

TEAS: See note above about the Tea is Love Group.

GIFT CARDS/GIFT CERTIFICATES: These make me happy -- Panera, Google Play, Starbucks, Barnes&Noble, Target, Amazon, Teavana, Michael's Arts & Crafts, Club Scrap, Keepsake Quilting.

Hope these lists help. :)

Favorite Books

Mysteries, thrillers, romantic suspense. See note above about puzzles. :)

Among some of my favorite authors: Jo Nesbo, Robert B. Parker, Steve Berry, Elizabeth Lowell/Ann Maxwell, James Baldwin, Kay Hooper, Langston Hughes, Jayne Ann Krentz, Paulo Coelho, Ha Jin, Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman, Daniel Silva, Martha Grimes, Jeffrey Deaver.

My mom likes...

Sometimes I join swaps where gifts/items are for my mom. She like blues and yellows, lace-edged handkerchiefs, Jesus, C-SPAN, politics, activism, non-fiction books about religion, and natural foods/eating/wellness. She collects angels, Nativity sets and loves surprises. Any items for her should be addressed to or labeled for Miss Bernice. Thanks!

Comment: Thank you for the notecards, the stickers, and especially the stamps! It's crazy that dust from Africa is blowing around in Texas, that just boggles my mind! I would be absolutely miserable in 110 degree temperatures. It's 66 here in Anchorage and I'm loving it! I hope it cools down for you in the near future! And thanks again! :)

Comment: Thanks for the story! I never thought about using water to get rid of the evidence... I might have to use that in a different story. :)

MSturgill87 rated for PW ~ Monday Mailer -- July on Aug 2, 2018
Comment: **Thank you** So much for all the awesomeness that was this swap!! I can't even begin to tell you how much I looked forward to each mailing and how above & beyond these mailings were. I had a lot of fun in this swap and look forward to future ones you may host.
Comment: I just opened day one and am so glad to get a chance to start bible journaling. Thank you for nice journal as I am not ready to mark in a Bible. I have a friend that went through chemo and radiation this past year and I think she may want to do this type of journaling as well so I can share my tips! This is going to be a fun week and then some!

Comment: Super cute tote bag. I love it! Thank you!! πŸ’žπŸ˜Š
Comment: Your book selection was well done. I have not read any of them, and even some of the authors are new to me. Thank you for the separate note in the mail. We must do an arc swap. I think I only have about 3 arcs though and I need to read them.
Comment: Creative but too hard to read..thank for the stickers
Nserviam rated for Gather 'Round the Campfire on Jul 8, 2018
Comment: Oh my gosh, what an awesome package! Thank you so much for all the effort you put into this. I love everything!
SuZignomeMoM rated for The Power of Words on Jul 6, 2018
Comment: β™₯ Thanks for all the extra words. I do not think I am up to your challenge even it I wrote about an insane man with random thoughts flowing through his mind. The words are too diverse, with no connective base. The idea is sound but wasted on me. Thanks for such a creative swap.
