About Me

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 really enjoy most crafts so 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 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 so neither of those are out of bounds. 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, 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: Hi Barbara, What a beautiful job you did on the card you sent to me! Is that embossing powder on the rose? Thank you and for the extras.
Response: Hi Bonnie. Yes, it is embossing powder, MANY layers of it. The poor thing was weak and trying to tear at the stem so I just kept adding more powder! I should have started over with a new die cut but I was determined to use the one I had started. I also changed colors of embossing powder because I didn't like the original colors. (I guess I like challenges... πŸ˜‰) I am really happy that you like it. I was a bit worried that you might not. Thank you so much for the rating and the heart! πŸ€—

Veterans Day

On Veterans Day we honor all, Who answered to a service call. Soldiers young, and soldiers old, Fight for freedom, brave and bold. Some have lived, while others died, And all of them deserve our pride.

WeÒ€ℒre proud of all the soldier who, Kept thinking of red, white and blue. They fought for us and all our rights, They fought through many days and nights. And though we may not know each name, We thank ALL veterans just the same.
