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: Love the rose ATC. You are so talented making your own stamp. I like all the extras especially inspirational card .
Response: I'm glad you like the ATC. It is really easy to make your own stamp. I use fun foam and die cut it and add to another piece of (sturdy) fun foam. Easy peasy! Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: Hi Barb, love all you sent, but especially those stamped images. The cool thing about that is I can make copies and use them again and again. Love stamped images.
Response: Hi Coleen. So glad everything worked for you. I wanted to send more but I didn't want the postage to go up because we just had to drop it in the box. Please let me know if it did need additional postage and I will repay you. Thanks for the rating and the heart!n πŸ€—

Comment: Hey Barb! I love the ATC you sent. The way you did the paper the middle makes it look like it's leather. How cool. I love the stamp you used too. It's always great being your partner. Take care :)
Response: Thanks Janis. You are always fun to swap with both ways. I appreciate the rating and heart. It always means a lot to me! To be honest, I know what I sent to you but I had an issue with my copier/scanner and never got a pic of it. I wish I knew what you thought looked like leather. My memory is not that great! πŸ™„ 😘

Comment: Thank you for the Zentangle ATC. I have not done any classes with certified teachers as I can't find any in a reasonable distance but I do enjoy it following the instructions from the Zentangle website. Looking forward to other swaps of this kind.
Response: I am glad you liked my swap. Keep working on your Zentangle and who knows, you may get a CZT there some day. They just had a class with 150 people from32 states and several other countries! This was my first hosting and I didn't even know where to put it. I would like to do more authentic Zentangle swaps in the future. Keep a lookout. Thank you for the rating and the heart! πŸ€—

Comment: Hi Barb - A beautiful "Beautiful" ATC 😊. I need to look in to Wink of Stella. Thank you for the pretty deco napkins too πŸ’œ
Response: I'm glad you thought my beautiful ATC was beautiful. πŸ˜‰ I really love Wink of Stella but it is a bit pricey. On the other hand, it does last a long time. I think Nuvo now makes one similar to it. Not sure if the price is better. Best wishes.
