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, Manifest, FBI, Last Man Standing, Single Parents, The Connors, The Rookie, Supernatural and American Housewife. 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

Noah's Ark items

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

Ratings

I feel the need to address this in light of having received two recent three's and a few in the past. In fairness, everyone who joins Swap Bot does so because they enjoy swapping and receiving mail. I have been a member for many years, am not a kid, have pen palled for over 40 years and enjoy what I do. I always send quality swaps and 99% of the time I send on time. I am, however, not perfect, naive or a flaker. Sometimes life happens - illness, death, Mother Nature or unexpected emergencies. This has happened to me a few times in the past year and because I was late in getting a swap out I was rated a 3. I always contact my partner that I am going to be late and explain why. You can see by my ratings that I am not irresponsible. However, many people feel if you are not at the mailbox by midnight on the day your swap is to go out, there are no excuses and no explanations. I find this unfair and uncompromising. Unfortunately, when many hosts are checking your profile, they won't notice the 200 hearts and 5's you have...they will zero in on the one 3 you have. Most of them don't bother even reading why. They just ban you from their swap. I find this very insulting. I will never do that to any partner of mine. You will always have a chance with any swap I host and I will work with you if something comes up. If anyone is flaked, I will angel that swap. Let's all just practice a little kindness in what is supposed to be a fun place and hobby!

Comment: You have the nicest handwriting! And I LOVE the Snoopy paper. I'm a big fan of Snoopy. I went to Knott's Berry Farm a lot growing up, and the Charles Schulz Museum is about an hour away from here. That's funny you went for 10 days to WDW. When I was in younger, my family would go every summer and we'd go for 10 days. Living in CA, I have for many years had an annual pass to Disneyland and go several times a year! I'll be there again in September when I go see Elton John. Disneyland is my happy place and fav. place ever, in the world. :)

Comment: Thanks for another nice letter. :) I'll have to look for Graphics Garden. :) When I used Face Book (I quit 3 years ago) I used to be in a few groups that posted free printable stationery and I saved a lot of my favorites and still use them. :)
