I now live in Christmas Valley, Oregon just outside of the Deschutes National Forest where I lived for 17 years (I miss the pine trees!). We are now in the high desert east of Central Oregon. The high desert (4300 + feet elevation) has it’s own beauty and uniqueness which has been fun discovering. I was born in San Diego, CA and lived there my entire life until my husband and I moved to Oregon 17 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 49 years, and a very sweet, goofy pitbull/lab mix named “Reggie”.
My favorite music is country...Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert just to name a few.
My favorite books are Gone With the Wind and The Twilight Series
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.
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 latest love is making junk journals or themed journals. Paper, paper, paper is my love! I am also doing lots and lots of collage projects and glue books! My favorite artists are Margarete Miller and Constance Rose whom I get so much inspiration from.
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 California quail! 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.
7/2022 ***JJJ: Let’s Make a Junk Journal Swap series: Vintage Victorian/Shabby Chic theme. Think Victorian ladies, old fashioned ladies’ dresses, shoes, hats and accessories. Images of old, ornate fancy furniture. Pretty background images of gardens and flowers. Vintage floral images…roses just for one example. Would like to incorporate images of beautiful, vintage birds. Love neutrals, pinks, blues, greens as well as jewel tones of blues, maroon, burgundy, darker green. Love the combination of pink and light green. Old book pages, doilies, coffee/tea dyed paper. Old vintage letters and handwriting. Old post cards. Hope this gives you ideas for the swap series. I am really easy going and not picky! Anything I receive will be loved and appreciated! I’m so excited for this swap!
