About Me

** 8-13-13 I want to apologize to everyone and especially those who have been my partners on swaps in the past 6 months. I've been going through a very rough time with depression, so much that I've been suicidal. I've had a rough year with my health, first my diabetes and then my depression, while dealing with divorce and just trying to survive. It's embarrassing to admit that I have this struggle, but I'm telling you now because I want you to know why I have been MIA and have been late with swaps. It was NEVER intentional, but my depression had gotten so bad that I couldn't do anything no matter how much I wanted to. I'm very sorry, and if I've offended anyone or missed mailing a swap, please let me know.

Hi, I'm Debbie, 46 from Texas I'm a divorced mother of 2 boys, ages 21 & 10. I love all crafts and recently started teaching myself to draw. I'm a big kid at heart.

My boys are my world! I love inspiring bible verses, quotes and poems.
Being crafty helps relieve stress. I have some health problems which include diabetes, anemia, IBS and cirrhosis of the liver. I have good and bad days. My doctors aren't sure how I got liver damage. Good news is I'm stable now, but someday I may need a transplant. I pray that's many many years away. I enjoy reading and writing, especially poetry. Writing poems helped me deal with my feelings going through a divorce.
I love going to the movies, but can't afford to do that very much, so I love watching movies at home too. :-)

Favorite Crafts

Cross stitching is my all time fav! Drawing, coloring, crochet, card making, scrap booking and so much more. I just started doing ATC's and have much to learn. I enjoy working puzzles, playing games, (board games and online games.). I like learning new things. I love to read and write.

My boys

My oldest son is Charlie, he is 20 and he's a die hard sports fan, he loves basketball the most, but also loves football and baseball. He enjoys playing his Xbox games, reading and watching movies and his favorite tv shows. He really loves anything having to do with mythology, such as Zeus, Hercules, etc. (He just started writing his own mythological book.) He has a dog named Thor that he absolutely loves. He became a black belt in karate at age 9 and his skills are just as strong today, if not stronger. He enjoys teaching me and his little brother karate and basic defensive skills.
My youngest son is Landon and he's 10. He likes basketball, playing video and board games, drawing and being creative. He also likes Legos, and Beyblades, and loves working jigsaw puzzles, and he's very good at it. He loves watching his favorite shows on tv. He loves to sing, he's always coming home from school and singing me a new song he learned in music class. He loves to read!! He loves animals just like his mom and enjoys spending time with the family dogs, Gus and Thor! I'm a proud mom of both my boys!!! Landon loves to be creative and is always asking me if there is some kind of swap for kids that he can participate in. He's also a big Pokémon fan!

They both love chocolate, fruit flavored candy like skittles, starburst, gummy snacks, etc.

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Hi Debbie! I am a Debbie too. and your partner in Favorite Bible Quotes... I read your profile and was really convicted to send you one of the most reassuring verse of the power of God's great love.. that no power on earth or heaven can come between us and God's love--

Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I pray you feel God's love and are reassured that He is ALWAYS with you.. no matter what!

Art Journaling is using Art rather than words in a journal to express your feelings, or to express creativity. You can draw, paint, collage, the possibilities are endless. If you google it, you will get tons of info on it. Pinterest is another great source. I just started Art journaling about 6 months ago. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! It is very theraputic for easing Chronic Pain. PM if you would like to talk more about it!! ((((HUGS))) Kimmie<3
