About Me

I'm Debbie, a retired bookmobile driver, living with my husband and one old cat on a few acres in the Mojave Desert, and enjoying life. We have two married children and 3 grandsons, who keep us pretty busy. We attend a traditional church with pipe organ and hymns - I love the old ways.

I collect antiques and fountain pens, and I have way too many hobbies. My husband and I travel frequently, on cruise ships or in our motorhome. We both like camping, hiking, kayaking, antique and thrift stores, singing and playing instruments.

I pride myself on being prompt, so please let me know if a swap does not reach you in a timely manner. Also, I am new to Swap-Bot (but not to swapping), so please tell me if I make a mistake in fulfilling the requirements of a swap, and I will be happy to make it right.

Favorite Crafts

Currently, my favorite craft is making ATCs, especially hand-painted or collage. I put a lot of time and effort into making them, because I love doing it. I'm open to private ATC trades as well, if you have some that you've worked really hard on and want to get something worthwhile in exchange.

I'm also into spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, paper crafts, watercolor, oil painting, journaling, letter writing, beadwork and jewelry making, and more!

I always say that I don't want to start any new crafts, but that never works...

Favorite Music

I like many kinds of music, especially if I can sing it. I especially like classical, folk, classic rock, bluegrass, hymns, and even some opera. I sing in a community choir, and also play ukulele.

I don't like heavy metal, rap, or modern country music.

Likes/dislikes

Likes: I'm old fashioned (and old, too), and I love anything vintage or antique. Fancy stationery, fountain pens and inks, vintage postage stamps, and old postcards are some of my favorite things. I love all the Victorian colors - rose, cream, gold, dark/dusty greens, blues, purples, browns and grays, and black. My favorite animals are cats of all kinds. I also like everything Japanese, especially the more traditional styles of art and fashion. I love tea, coffee, and chocolate - all kinds. I have no allergies (Yay!) and I'm not terribly picky, either.

Dislikes: I'll happily accept any swaps that meet the requirements, but I'm not a fan of neon colors, glitter, graffiti-style art, etc. And definitely no profanity - that will go straight into the trash.

Things I'm looking for

Anything Tim Holtz - especially embellishments

Library card pockets

Small flattish embellishments that I can use on ATCs - I'm having a hard time finding them around here!

Tiny (1/2" or so) paper or silk flowers

Old maps or pieces of them

Genuine vintage ephemera

Old paper of all sorts

Paper napkins with vintage-style designs

Comment: Debbie, Thank you so much for the ATC! Great job using bits and pieces. I am the same way regarding interesting bits and pieces! Love the extras too... where did you ever find a library card? I didn't know there were any left anywhere in the world!!! 🙂 Thanks again!
Response: I got the library card (several, actually) as an extra in a swap a few months ago. As a former library employee, I enjoy stuff like that.
