Update

NEW UPDATE 8/28/2020 Well, I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy on Tuesday and found out that I have a large hiatal hernia and a couple of more issues. No wonder I was having the problems that I had! The Dr. took many biopsies and I will get the results on Sept. 16. I imagine I will have to make some changes to my already healthy diet. I just hope they don't find anything else. I can only take so much! πŸ₯Ί

UPDATE 6/1/2020 Please, please, if you are my sending partner, I would really appreciate it if you would not put so much clear tape on the envelope. I don't mind Washi tape. The problem is that I have had so much intensive chemo that I have neuropathy and it is very difficult and sometimes painful trying to open taped envelopes. When I use scissors, I am always afraid that I will cut into your beautiful piece of art. Thanks!

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! 🐱

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: Update: No, I didn't send you the paper. I'm able to read Chinese, so I figured it out by the names and dialogues exchanged :P Thank you for the cute sushi atc! It is really adorable <3 the Asian paper you use for the background is a page from a Chinese translation of a comedy play "My Son, The Doctor" by the Uruguayan playwright Florencio SΓ‘nchez :D
Response: Wow, that is cool to know. I love that set! By the way, did you send me that paper? I really like it a lot. Very useful. Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: Thanks for being in the swap. I wonder if either of us will.win. I'm so sorry your cancer has come back. It sounds like you have s good medical team. I also think people use way too much tape. I like to save the pretty envelopes and stamp and have a hard time opening them without too much damage. Stay safe
Response: Thank you for the rating and the heart. I agree with what you said about the tape. Hopefully, one of us will win! πŸ€—
