About Me

I am a mother of 7 children ages 5-19. I love to do crafts as a sanity break.I enjoy crocheting, knitting, quilting, sewing, making ATCs, and getting happy mail!

I grew up in southeast Idaho, but currently live in Port Angeles, Washington. It is on the top of Washington's peninsula. I can see Victoria, Canada to the north over the water and the beautiful Olympic Mountains to the south. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Business Administration when I was pregnant with my second child. I have been blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom for my small army of children. Keeping up with them is a full time job.

Favorite Crafts

Crocheting is my favorite craft. I especially love making amigurumis. But I also make hats, gloves, afghans, bags, etc.

Knitting is also fun to do, but dangerous with children. I have gone to the bathroom to come back and found my children sword fighting with my knitting needles and my project on the floor, all my stitches dropped and mangled. Crochet hooks are less interesting to boys, thus I do a lot more crocheting.

My Ravelry ID is also kirkdebb if you want friend me or to gift me a pattern for a swap.

I also love to piece quilts. It is fun to see how different fabrics work together. I was in a group where we did an ugly quilt contest. Everyone donated fabrics we didn't want that they thought were "ugly". The coordinator organized the fabric into bags. Each of us took a bag and made a quilt. Every quilt turned out amazing! These ugly fabrics we didn't like were changed into works of art. Truly an life changing event that has helped me look at life and fabric differently.

Favorite Animal

I love turtles, especially sea turtles. For Mother's Day last year my kids gave me a sea turtle with the phrase "Live at your own pace".

I love sunflowers and it is my kitchen's is theme.

Favorite Books

Fablehaven, Beyonders, Septimus Heap, Harry Potter, Bartemaeus Trilogy, Searching for Dragons, Lockwood and Co, etc.

I love a good mystery, but also enjoy classics like Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Lord of the Rings, etc.

Favorite Movies

All the Marvel and DC movies. Star Wars and Star Trek. Disney. Musicals, Bollywood.

My favorite Chinese series is called Eternal Love. Definately recommend, amazing story, excellent acting, beautiful sets and costumes.

Child Swap

I have 7 children. Please choose who you would like.

Gideon 19, favorite colors are black and red.

Eva 17, favorite colors are pink and teal.

Cecelia 15, favorite color is purple.

Gildon 13, favorite color red.

Ishmael 10, favorite color blue.

Gabriel 8, favorite color green.

Gavin 5, favorite color red.

My girls would like bath bombs, lip chap, gel pens, yarn (Cecelia crochets), paint (Eva paints), ironic/corny backpack pins, fun socks, etc.

My younger boys enjoy legos and building blocks, small cars, dinosaurs, candy(anything but black licorice), glow sticks, etc.

My older boys would enjoy headphones or another small electronic.


For yarn or fabric swaps I prefer bright colors. I don't like pastel colors as much. Also, please no character prints.

I would love any sunflower fabrics as I am working on a wall hanging for my kitchen.


I always send and I try to always rate. Please contact me if you have a problem. I have 7 children at home and life can be crazy.

I usually rate a 5, but have had to rate 1's for the following users: Rose8990, sticheddreams, tashia9965, peachyplum, Cmarsh13. I never received the swap from them. I have messaged them and recieved no response. Some have read and ignored my message others seem to have left Swapbot entirely (their last sign-in date was months ago).If someone needs some extra time, I will gladly wait to rate if I receive a message. No swap and no communication will get a 1. I will happily change my rating to a 5 if they contact me. I totally understand how life can be crazy and the postal system unreliable. I've had two packages lost by the USPS in the last few years. One was to my sister who also lives in Washington. The other one April 2020 was an order from Amazon. The tracking shows it arrived in my town on the delivery day then the next update showed it was in Wenatchee, WA which is 6 hours away and then no more updates. I have lived at my current address for only a year and a half and have had the postman misdeliver my mail to someone else (luckily they dropped it off) or deliver someone else's mail to me 6 times. If you contact me and say you mailed it I will trust your word. Please message me and let me know your side. Complete silence from your end is very frustrating to me.


ABC of things I like (work in progress):


B- butterflies, buttons, brads

C- cactus, canning, crocheting

D- dragonflies, dragons

E- envelopes, elves

F- fabric, family, fairies

G- galaxy



J- jellyfish, jam

K- knitting

L- lady bugs, llamas

M- moon

N- narwhals

O- octopus

P- platypus

Q- quilts

R- rain, rainbows

S- sunflowers, sea turtles, sewing, shells (my maiden name is Schell)

T- turtles,






Z- zippers
