About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room. If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day.

Anyways, I always mark the swap as being sent the minute it goes into the mail slot because if I didn't, I'd be afraid of totally forgetting to mark it sent at all.

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 62 year old Christian woman.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018.

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 8 in July of 2018. [Yep, that's her in the picture below!]


Favorite Crafts

  • Plastic canvas
  • Bullet Journaling
  • Smashbooks
  • Junk Journals
  • Reading on my Kindle [I love it!]
  • My personal Filofax Malden [that I've named Mia Mald"ee"n. lol]



I also love vintage photos as well, especially the regular sized pictures of anybody [don't worry, if the photo isn't identified and you don't know who the person is ... I'll give them a name. LOL]

I love paper crafts and have a hard time throwing any papers away and though I have a lot of papers [many bits and pieces], I still would welcome any sent. Love cute pictures [even if from a magazine!]

My likes 'n dislikes


Would really love some washi tape samples

Postcards [or pictures] of carousels, getting letters in the mail and pretty address labels.

  • Would absolutely love and treasure any postcards of: Paris; Castles; Israel; England; Swansea,MA; Gone With the Wind; Carousels and any on the Royal Family, Jane Austen, Downton Abbey or those that might have a writing in a different language on the front!

Also would love a card from Yulee, Florida if anyone should have one and a card sent from Jerusalem as well.

  • Pretty cancelled stamps

  • Anything on or about the Royal Family [especially Princess Di, William, Harry, Kate and the babies!]

I really have no love for Price Charles or Camilla so would not like anything about them.

  • I absolutely adore fine nibbed fountain pens and writing with them! Nope, I'm not hinting or asking for any because I have plenty of them, but just throwing in here with my likes, how much I love writing with them. I'd never used one until December 2015 and I immediately fell in love the minute I put the pen to paper!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

One on One Letter Swaps

I love doing letter swaps but due to postage, I limit those to people here in the US.

Please, if you love writing letters and ...

  1. Aren't a flaker

  2. You write more than just a "note" [to me, actually ... any letter under 5 pages front and back, to me ... IS "just a note"!]

  3. Have legible writing that I can read [Lord, I know I sound picky but there's nothing worse than getting a nice letter to read but you can't make the words out and it happens far more than I would ever have thought it would. It's very frustrating!

    ... Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to do a one on one letter swap with me.

I love getting letters from those who put some thought or effort into their letters as I do and I guess what I mean by thought or effort is that you ... write a long enough letter.

It doesn't have to be written about anything in particular and in fact as for myself, I gab about anything, everything and sometimes even nothing at all. LOL

I'm just not one to like short letters, and even less is liking ones with huge writing that are trying to just fill up a page and are saying nothing in the process, just to hurry and get a swap completed. lol]

Response: Emily, I still plan on answering your letter you wrote me this past year, "if" I can find it. I moved and still can't find everything. Was so horribly busy from May through the end of the year that I just didn't have time then to answer it but I haven't forgotten! ----- Make sure and update to let me know if you liked the letter or not! lol

Comment: Thanks for the lovely PC and your note. I gained 8 pounds over the holidays but am back on track now. Slow and steady works well for me. I've lost three pounds in January and that's fine.
Response: Thanks so much for the rating. I hope you're still on track yet - as for me, yeah - not so much right now but I soon will be [I hope!] lol I am going to follow the weight watchers plan though I am not a member or anything, it seemed to help in the past. As for you - keep up the good work!

MeggyMoo rated for (Email Swap) Currently I'm ... #1 on Jan 26, 2019
Comment: HI Debi! I so enjoyed this swap and your email, it made me smile so much as I was reading it. It was just like you were talking to me, very friendly and fun. I will certainly look up Juliet Jones and also 'tangling', whatever that is! While you're saying how cold it is (brrrrrr!) we have been here sweating it out with temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius - last Thursday was the hottest since 1939 with 48.6*C, if I remember correctly! Enjoy the deer, your new place and (maybe by now) your new TV. I hope the pillow situation has been resolved to your satisfaction, too. All the best and thanks again for a great swap! Tracy
Response: Awe, thank you so much for the sweet words and the 5 (and a heart too!) I've heard people say that a lot when I write letters, that it's just like we were sitting there having a conversation face to face almost. Compliments like that really make me happy so thank you, you made my day! Edit: Woo hoo ... I just realized that you just gave me my 300th - 5 rating!!

This is from an old swap but wanted to keep this so I could remember which to put first, the brackets or the parenthesis!

Quick and Easy Profile Message Swap-- Hello Debi, It was interesting to read you live in Titusville. My grandmother's sister lived there here entire adult life and my grandmother also lived there with her on and off at times. I remember seeing the photos and hearing the stories about life there. I liked hearing about the Amish they would see from time to time. I hope you have a lovely New Year's 2018!!!!

TereDiane1954 on Apr 18, 2016:

I got your nice long letter today, Debi. (When you write a letter, you don't mess around with three lines, do you?) I enjoyed it so much! And I like the brochures about the history of Titusville and the fun things there are to do. Many thanks, and a big hug♥
