About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room. If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day.

I just moved on 11/9/18 and at my old place we had mail pick up twice a day but here it's only once a day.

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 62 year old Christian woman.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018.

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 8 in July of 2018. [Yep, that's her in the picture below!]


Favorite Crafts

  • Plastic canvas
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Smashbooks
  • Junk Journals
  • Reading on my Kindle [I love it!]
  • My personal Filofax Malden [that I've named Mia Mald"ee"n. lol]



I also love vintage photos as well, especially the regular sized pictures of anybody [don't worry, if the photo isn't identified and you don't know who the person is ... I'll give them a name. LOL]

I love paper crafts and have a hard time throwing any papers away and though I have a lot of papers [many bits and pieces], I still would welcome any sent. Love cute pictures [even if from a magazine!]

My likes 'n dislikes


Would really love some washi tape samples

Postcards [or pictures] of carousels, getting letters in the mail and pretty address labels.

  • Would absolutely love and treasure any postcards of: Paris; Castles; Israel; England; Swansea,MA; Gone With the Wind; Carousels and any on the Royal Family, Jane Austen, Downton Abbey or those that might have a writing in a different language on the front!

Also would love a card from Yulee, Florida if anyone should have one and a card sent from Jerusalem as well.

  • Pretty cancelled stamps

  • Anything on or about the Royal Family [especially Princess Di, William, Harry, Kate and the babies!]

I really have no love for Price Charles or Camilla so would not like anything about them.

  • I absolutely adore fine nibbed fountain pens and writing with them! Nope, I'm not hinting or asking for any because I have plenty of them, but just throwing in here with my likes, how much I love writing with them. I'd never used one until December 2015 and I immediately fell in love the minute I put the pen to paper!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

One on One Letter Swaps

(At this time I'm putting any new letter swaps on hold but hope once I get moved, I can get back at it again!]

I love doing letter swaps but due to postage, I only do those with people here in the US.

Please, if you love writing letters and ...

  1. Aren't a flaker

  2. You write more than just a "note" [to me, actually ... any letter under 5 pages front and back is "just a note"!]

  3. Have legible writing that I can read [Lord, I know I sound picky but there's nothing worse than getting a nice letter to read but you can't make the words out and it happens far more than I would ever have thought it would. It's very frustrating!

    ... Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to do a one on one letter swap with me.

I love getting letters from those who put some thought or effort into their letters as I do.

Meaning that I've found out due to a bad swap, I do NOT like short letters, nor do I like ones with huge writing that are trying to just fill up a page and are saying nothing in the process, just to hurry and get a swap completed. lol]

Yeah, I am content with living alone and well, I'm not totally alone as I have my cat with me [she's the baby! lol] I love doing my crosses as it makes me happy to help make others happy and also it helps to keep my from being stressed out.

Dear Tita Debi,

I just want to say that God used you to encourage me during the times that I was feeling depressed (Remember the message that I sent to you).

Especially the part where you mentioned to take care, and to try not to feel wounded.

To update you, the trip has been rescheduled in September, and I am continuing on the raising of the support. I hope you can pray for me :)

God bless, and I am thinking about you.



CraftyMommaonaBUDGET on May 9, 2018:

This is from an old swap but wanted to keep this so I could remember which to put first, the brackets or the parenthesis!
