Favorite Books

I love reading!!! I collect books way faster than I can read them. I like all kinds of genres but it must be well-written. I like award winners, drama, crime, thriller, etc. Favorite books include: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison, Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon, Phillipa Gregory Tudor series, and have enjoyed nearly every Oprah book club book I have read.

Favorite Crafts

I 💖💖💖 all things crafty!!! I add this into my pen pal letter making as well. Favorites include: CROSS STITCHING!!!!!! happy planner and bullet journal, crochet and knitting, making ATCs, painting and so much more.I just learned to Zentangle and I really like it.

My newest crafty obsession is making ATCs and I want to make high quality ones...if you receive an AT C from me and are an experienced AT C maker, will you please message me privately with any thoughts of advice on how I can make them better? Thanks!

I do have terrible carpal tunnel so this limits me! I just keep trying and plug away at whatever numerous projects I have going 😬😎😌😳


  • Gory images( creepy or Halloween/ghostly stuff is OK and I rather like...but bloody or demonic NO,just NO, zombies and horror films also a no (although I do enjoy reading Koontz and Stephen King)
  • Teas I dislike - any with licorice, berry flavors, and not a fan of chamomile
  • Anime
  • Country music
  • Award stickers *Hate or judgement, intolerance
  • Phobia: camel crickets, random, I know

Favorite Music
