Update

2/22/2020 - My cancer has returned. I always knew it would so it wasn't a big surprise. My doctors want to wait a while before they start treatment. They are afraid that the side effects of chemo would be worse than the cancer at this stage. The day after I returned from the cancer center, I found out that I had a Melanoma and a Dysplastic Nevis. I had the Melanoma removed from my arm on Tuesday and will have the Nevis removed next Tuesday. Due to my particular cancer, I am more likely to get another type of cancer (especially Melanomas). March is Multiple Myeloma Awareness month and our motto is "I am resilient!" I certainly am that! I am living my best life...

I am a cancer patient diagnosed in 2011. I have Multiple Myeloma. There is no cure but I am in remission.

I am a Certified Zentangle teacher and I like to draw and give (and sell) my work. I am also a card maker. My style is usually clean and simple but sometimes, I will get carried away and add layers and embellishments. I also enjoy watercoloring, colored pencils and jewelry making.

I enjoy most crafts have and gotten into ATCs big time! I really enjoy working on little works of art. I am not too particular of what I get, however, I do not have any use for children's themed things and I do not like action heroes and gory things. I do like Tim Holtz style. I would also appreciate it if you would not put too much tape on the back of the envelope. It makes it very difficult for me to open!

I am a Christian but use to be Jewish. Anything faith based is fine.

I also like to sing and I enjoy traditional Christian music, show tunes, new age and classical music.

I am big time into rubber-stamping and die cutting. and I love all colors! I am also an old cat lady. I LOVE CATS! ๐Ÿฑ

I am interested in swapping anything related to card making, ATCs, stamping, die cutting, anything Zentangle (not doodling) including Zentangle Inspired Art. I am serious about my art and I always try to send things on time. I also rate as soon as I get my swap and I would appreciate the same from my partners. If for any reason you have not received something from me on time, please notify me! I have some issues with my memory, but I check Swap-bot almost every day. I also try to thank you for my rating ASAP. It is common courtesy!

If by any chance there is not enough postage on what I have sent you, please message me and let me know so that I can pay you back! Sometimes I have to drop my mail after hours because we don't have a post office where I live. Thanks.

Looking forward to swapping with you!

Comment: 1. I keep busy by working Full Time and I have been Sewing Face Masks for Family, Friends and Co-workers. Soon Garden time with Planting Veggies. 2. I like the cooking but not the Clean up. Soups are easy and Tasty, I don't like to use a lot of Seasoning, just let the natural flavors of the Veggies come through. Veggie soups, with Beans and Lentils, Split Pea Soup is a Favorite. 3. I enjoy sewing, Crocheting, Cardmaking, anything Creative. Took Art in Highschool and some Watercolor painting Classes and Lettering with Pen and Ink, lately I like to collage and use decoupage on Bookmarks . Thank you for Asking...
Response: Great answers! Thank you for sharing and for the heart! Stay well and stay safe. ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ˜ท

Comment: This is beautiful! Thank you so much. It's so wonderful that you had a cross in purple. I absolutely love it! Thanks for the extras too. I'm actually in a swap for altered tickets, so I may use the one you sent as a guide. :)
Response: You are so welcome. The cross is actually cut from one of my dies. When I saw that you liked purple, I just knew that was what I was going to do. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to put 3 things on a card that had 4 distinct areas. Then I thought of the flower sequins directly on the cross. This was a fun challenge! Thanks for the rating and heart. Blessings and take care!

Comment: I love this adorable ATC!! It looks like the whale is spouting a little tree, and I imagine that his tail hitting the water looks like a feather splash! Thank you so much for all of the fun Halloween extras too! :D
Response: You are very welcome. I am glad you like it and appreciate the humor. Enjoy the extras. If you are my partner again, I have plenty more where that came from! Thank you for the rating and the heart!

Comment: sorry I thought I rated you but I guess i forgot to hit the save button. I also eat cinnamon and raisins with my oatmeal. But it seems you really are a raisin lover.
Response: I have done that myself. No problem, thank you for the rating. Now I can archive the swap. ๐Ÿค—

Comment: Barb... as always, a beautiful ATC! I love the background... The bicycle is a perfect representation of spring. Since I save all mine, I am going to write your swap info on the back of it. Thank you for the extra sleeves too... I am very low on them!
Response: Thank you. I really thought it represented spring. If I could only ride a bicycle...my husband had me stop riding a few years ago due to my cancer. A fall could actually kill me! Anyway, I am glad you like it. I will try to remember to send you more sleeves the next time you are my partner. ๐Ÿ˜˜

Comment: Love that you are counting the distance to the mailbox! I'm missing my cleaner - not allowed here because of social distancing/lockdown!
Response: It is something I really need to do to keep healthy. I get that about your cleaner. We thought about hiring one and then the virus started and we made the decision not to do it. My house is a mess because I am not supposed to do it and my husband only does it when he feels like it which is maybe once a month! I do wipe down touched areas with my Clorox wipes...๐Ÿ˜ท

Comment: i loved ur atc! was just perfect for me! thank u!
Response: I'm so glad you like it. I had 2 rainbow swaps that I was doing around the same time. I was trying to figure out which one I sent to you. I always scan them to my computer but I never add which swaps they are for. I think I figured it out...Lol. I guess I will start naming the pic in the future. ๐Ÿ˜‰
