Update

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: Thank you for the pretty ATC and extras - This has been the happiest mail I've received today!! Yay! Did you make the leaf print and Zentangled tile yourself? Even the green notecard you sent everything in has a pleasant texture to it! Thanks ever so much for the happy mail, neighbor! Oh, and I thought your handwritten note was wonderfully amusing - plz tell you granddaughter that I said she has an awesome name! Truth be told, I lived most my life only having met two other "Harmony's" out West, then surprisingly heard of FIVE MORE since joining the Postcrossing and Swap-bot venues a few years back! LOL! Guess we're becoming popular...😉
Response: Wow, that arrived quickly, even for Florida. I am glad my mail made you so happy. Yes, I like to take leaves and flowers and press them in my Cuttlebug and then tangle on them. I do a whole lot of tangling. It helps me feel better. Previously to you, I had only met 1 other Harmony. Guess it is a hippie thing. Lol! Thank you for the rating and the ❤️. They always mean so much to me!

Comment: Thanks for the great ATC. Love the bold colors you used. Are the gold corner boarders stickers? They are a great finishing touch. The black and white piece is very impressive as well.
Response: Thanks for the rating and the heart. I scanned the ATC before I put the gold on but I think they were border stickers. I believe I used them because they looked Asian. Glad you like it and the Zentangle that I sent.

Comment: Thank you for the cool Halloween ATC. It is one of few Halloween ATCs I received that is not orange :D Also, really love the zentange art you included, it is so beautiful <3
Response: Thank you. I am glad you like the ATC and the Zentangle. I have been doing a lot of tangling these past 8 months and I have so many tiles so I decided to enclose one when I send a swap. Thanks for the ❤️!
