About Me

NOTE: I have in the last month had some very sad, difficult situations to go through. I have gotten extremely behind in my swaps! Very behind! I am so scared that this might end up with some bad ratings. I have not been able to concentrate on my crafts. I just now feel like I can get to the craft room again and it does feel good to create. I am going to get in touch with all of you that I owe swaps. Meanwhile I will work hard to get caught up! I hope all of you can be patient with me at this time! I love Swapbot and my swap partners! I will make this good and I will not flake on you! Any questions please feel free to message me. Thank you so very much for your understanding!

I live in a small, rural town in the Deschutes National Forest in central Oregon...a long-time dream of mine to live in the forest...love it so much! I was born in San Diego, CA and lived there my entire life until my husband and I moved to Oregon 13 years ago. Our son still lives down in San Diego and I miss him so much! Happily, our lovely daughter has moved up here in our cute little town and I couldn’t be more pleased. We have such a wonderful time together. She is also a Swapbot member and we enjoy doing our crafts together. I received an Associate's Degree in Science and studied Animal Health and became a Registered Veterinary Technician...I worked over 17 years in that field. I have also studied Medical Transcription. I am an avid bird watcher! I am a very active pinner on Pinterest. I live with my husband, my high-school sweetheart whom I have been married to for over 46 years, and a very sweet pitbull named "Molly" and a sweet bunny who likes to give kisses.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is country...Brothers Osborne, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert just to name a few.

Favorite Books

My favorite books are Gone With the Wind and The Twilight Series

Favorite Television

My favorites are Games of Thrones, Homeland and Billions. I also love watching This is Us, Animal Planet, Oregon Field Guide, the Food Network, Breaking Bad, Bate's Motel and The Walking Dead.

Favorite Crafts

I have a passion for tole and decorative painting which I did a lot of years ago. I have also dabbled in beginning quilting. Not sure why, but I have gotten away from doing crafts and I want to change that! The crafts that I am excited about doing are decorative painting, quilting, fabric and paper crafts which I am hoping that being a member of Swap-bot will help get me going! I really want to learn how to make wonderful smelling handmade soaps.

My likes are:

I have a passion for BIRDS...chickadees and robins are just a couple of my favorites.. and wildlife...especially SQUIRRELS, bunnies and wolves. I love vintage and shabby chic. Favorite colors are red, pink, blue, purple. I love the scent of lavender. I love pitbulls. I also love cooking and gardening. I love bird houses. I love all things that have to do with country living...chickens, roosters, barns, canning, picnics, old-fashioned country antiques.

Comment: Debbie, I owe you a big apology. This beauty got buried on my craft table, and I just now found it, while tidying up vast, teetering stacks of papers and other art-related goodies. I LOVE your artwork and this is above and beyond! It makes me want to get out in the garden! (Just kidding...this is summertime in western Michigan, with suffocating heat and humidity after about 9:00 am.) I went from the beautiful, temperate PNW to a place that has 2 seasons...frigid and sweltering. Spring and fall are gorgeous for all 5 days of each. Anyway... I adore this, and I hope you know how exciting it is to receive a swap envelope from you!

Comment: Hi Debbie and thank you so much for the wonderful scrappy booklet with the bird twinchie! I love it. The cover is awesome - I actually thought you had machine stitched it until I realized it's a stamp stitch! Love the bird twinchie. Pretty pages inside just waiting for some journaling! Thanks so much for the extra goodies as well - love the flowers and butterfly!

Comment: Ooh la la...she is exquisite! I love all the different "takes" on this theme (I had a wonderful time making mine!) and I couldn't be happier with the two I received. Thank ho also for the pile of fabulous extras...I've completed my move (dear GOD, let this be my final move!) but my craft room is in complete disarray, and I can't seem to find the things I want and need in the boxes and totes that are piled ceiling-high (I was a bit shocked to see how much stuff I have, once the storage unit was emptied and all those boxes were delivered to my new home). Pray for me, dear Debbie...I need all the help I can get (I've been abusing the 5/30 "send by" dates and have 30 or 40 swaps that are due in...9 days!!!).
