Favorite Music

.I tend to like music from the 70's & 80's artists like: Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, Journey, Rod Stewart, Pet shop Boys, etc. You know, music that is considered to be oldies now!! Ha Ha Ha

Favorite Television

Don't really tend to watch much tv. I love a lot of shows off of Sy-Fy. The Gifted, The Magicians, Vikings, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones, Van Helsing, Midnight, Texas, etc.

Favorite Crafts

Most of the crafting I do is with rubber stamps, clip art, recycled items. Mostly making ATCs & cards but want to learn how to journal & make flip books, too. So many crafts; not so many hours in the day!

In 2019 I hope to develop my skills in art journals & flip books & maybe even hand made post cards=)

I like making (but am slow at it) pocket letters, ATCs, cards, scrapbook pages, etc. I like going to thrift stores, dollar stores, yard sales to find goodies to craft with or recycle.

1koolkrafter rated for January Box/Envie swap on Feb 22, 2019
Comment: This is a new update...as of Friday 2-22-19. We have communicated and worked thru this matter. Colette...I never received anything from you for this swap. When I do... I will re-rate you accordingly. This is an update on 2-16-19 to my original post here. I received your message. This is not a retaliatory rating. You say it was delivered to my PO Box on 2-1-19. I will check with the Post Office on Monday to see where the delivery went but I did not get it. You should really be careful about things you say and accusations you make!
Response: This is a retaliatory rating as tracking shows the package arrived at her P O Box on February 1st. Update: 2/22/19 Package sent on 1/26 & arrived at partner's P O on 2/1.
