About Me

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.

I love everything you have done with this - from the Lady Liberty figure in the center to the touches of bling, the stars and stripes - it all just works wonderfully. Thanks also for the selection of VJP sized red, white and blue papers. Great swap - as always!

Comment: Debbie, your magpie ATC turned out exactly like I 'wanted' mine to turn out! It is GORGEOUS. You found the perfectly-sized element to hang from its beak. Love all the layers, the beautiful background, and that amazing metal flower stem--it just finishes the piece! Thank you for always creating something special; when I see your name as the return address I always know I'm in for a treat. Thank you, too, my friend, for the lovely extras.

Comment: Hi Debbie! Beautiful--as always--it's no surprise ;+) You included so many pretty elements and I LOVE dimension on any card. I counted over 10 layers on this card! WOW! You have such a knack for putting things together without them being matchy-matchy. I thought the little embroidered rose at the top was the perfect embellishment. Remeber when we were young and those were sewn on undergarments? I still love them!

Comment: Wow Debbie! Your collaged envelope is Awesome and Gorgeous! Having fun when you make a scrap paper collage is exactly what is needed to make it fun to look at too. Sometimes it can be a little daunting for me to get it all working together, but that's only when I take it all too seriously and forget the fun. Your first mail art collage is really good and I (and my daughter) loved looking at it. Thank you ☺ ♥ also for all the wonderful collage materials you gifted me with!

Thank you (and your sweet daughter) very, very much for the thoughtful and beautiful Christmas gift. I love everything so much...that gorgeous bird ornament will have pride of place on my tree this year! It is exquisite. I just love you guys, and not because you bought me a present, either!
