Update

Another new update: I am going to start some very intense chemo on March 17th. I will try to continue with SB but I am not sure how I will react to this chemo. It will be an 8-9 hour infusion every week for 8 weeks and then taper to every other week. If you don't see me around for a while, you will know that I am just not feeling up to it. Please remember that March is Multiple Myeloma Awareness month.

New update: Please do not feel the need to send extras to me. I rate people on how much effort that they put in to whatever they are making for me. Right now I have so much "stuff" that I don't know how I will ever use it up. I could open my own store! My life expectancy is maybe 2 years tops and I feel sorry for my husband to have to figure out what to do with everything! I am not being negative, I am just being realistic. With my cancer, there is no cure and I am already on borrowed time. Thanks.

I would like to mention a pet peeve of mine with SwapBot. I really dislike it when you review a person and they don't thank you for the review and heart (if given)! I feel that it is common courtesy to thank someone that goes out of their way to rate you. Just saying... 😞

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: Hi Barb! What a cute ATC! I love the little owl and I'm crazy for anything with mushrooms. Nicely composed ATC ;+) Thanks, too, for the adorable bear card and envelope--SOOOO cute! Nothing's cuter than a baby bear. Thanks so much for sending such a special swap.
Response: I am so glad that you like everything. I had to do a lot of searching for the mushrooms but very happy with what I found. I used a piece of grass designer paper for the background. I looked at your profile and saw that you liked bears. I happened to have a card with the bear and knew that you would appreciate it. Thanks for the rating and the heart!
