A little about Me


💜In memory of Mom 2/27/38-9/9/19💜

December 2019

Taking a little time to update my profile. Hey there, Hi, Howdy 🤠 and hello. Nice to meet you, and glad you stopped by. My name is Deborah, but prefer to be called Deb or Debbie. My hubby is the only person I know that actually calls me Deborah, dad calls me Deb & mom always called me Debbie.

I’m a down to earth Texas country girl. Grew up in small town & now living in the country. Where you can sit on the porch at night and listen to the coyotes & watch the fireflies. I am married to the love of my life that actually supports all that I do, be it shopping online for craft supplies to being my Dad’s caregiver!

I’m a mom to 2 daughters (2 son-in-laws), a Mimi to 6 grandkids (1 grand-daughter-in-law & 2 grandsons-in-laws) and 3 precious GREAT grand children (2 boys & girl). And a NEW Great grand baby due in May! So excited! And a mom to one fur baby Skeeter, a Chihuahua-Italian Greyhound mix. He’s ROTTEN!!

Crafts I love to do

Handmade cards
Handmade envelopes
Altered art
Junk/Art Journaling
Sewing/Rag Quilts
Handmade embellishments/pockets/tags

ATC’s are my favorite craft to work on. I LOVE making and receiving ones with a 3D effect. I love the demension, the textures any raised element brings to that little 2.5” x 3.5” work of art. I have an awesome collection of both flat & 3D and I love them all. If anyone else shares this love, I’m up for private swaps. I try to match ATC’s to partners profile likes, but if it’s stated senders choice I’m usually going to do that.

Papercrafts: handmade envelopes (all sizes), cards, flip books (new love), journal pockets, and mini books are some of my latest “ohhh I like making these!” crafts. I’ll search YouTube for different tutorials to try out. I have the We Are Memory Keepers Envelope punch board, the WAMK mini envelope, the tag and pocket punch boards and the mini ABC punch board. My daughter picked up the flower punch board at Tuesday Morning for me, I’m still waiting for her to bring or send it to me.

Journaling: Junk & art are more or less for me. I jot down things that mom or dad might say, something the hubs did to lift my spirits or something hilarious he said (he’s really good at keeping me laughing these days). I can’t draw to save my life! I doodle good 🤣, but give me ephemera, stamps, Coptic markers, glue & embellishments and I’m a happy journalist! I also love to swap small art pages with others to add to my journals.

Besides having a large assortment of Tim Holtz products my newest addiction is Graphic 45! OMG, their papers & ephemera is gorgeous! So far I have:
Fairie Dust
Winter Wonderland
Lost in paradise (New collection)

I’m up for private swaps on any of the above crafts

I’m also a big fan of Dyan Reaveley & Dina Wakley. I’ve started adding a few of their products to my supplies. My favorites right now are the Dylusions spray inks. Though they are a bit messy sometimes, the colors are awesome!!

I have a Cricut expressions and a huge assortment of cartridges, a Cuttlebug and Sizzix Big Shot. I’m slowly building my cutting dies collection. I have been using the Big Shot more recently than my cricut. I’m always up for a swap of die cuts. Message me if interested & I can send a list of dies & cartridges I have for you to choose from.

12/19. I love the Junker Jane monsters! I have a board on my Pinterest with a lot of them pinned. I want to try making one. If you have any suggestions, I am certainly open for them. Also if anyone would like to do a private swap with me, I’d love to do one after the holidays. Just send me a PM & we’ll set one up. Thanks!

Postage & how I send & Ratings

We live in rural area. I am only able to leave the house once a week when I have someone to come sit with mom & dad. So I have bought a postal scale & stocked up on stamps. And if I'm in doubt on amount I will add extra stamps. So if EVER you get postage due from me please please let me know & I will send you stamps to cover. I will put my swap in the mailbox in the mornings, mail runs between noon & 3pm. I will not mark sent until any swaps have been picked up by postal carrier. Our PO closes at 3:30. So anything picked up at our rural mailbox will not be post marked til next day for those of you that check dates. And anything picked up Saturday will not be post marked til Monday. I keep track of my swaps when I send & start worrying after about a week when they are being sent in US. You may get a message from me when I feel like it's been an ample amount of time to arrive just checking with you. That way I can start on a resend. I rate as I open my swaps the day they arrive. If I haven't rated you, please contact me. It either means I got sidetracked with caring for my mom or it hasn't arrived. Ratings are important to all of us. I ask the same from you upon receiving from me. Thanks.

Thank you for the wonderful OMAE Nov RAK attack. The tags are beautiful and the JOY banner thing is so cheerful. Loving the die cuts and the snarky stamped sayings too!

manders2280 on Dec 6, 2019:

Thank you for recounting your experience with peppermint oil. I'm glad to hear it works for you because I thought it might be a good deterrent in areas where we prepare food, where we wouldn't want them wandering into a trap.

Wonderful Wishes December
