** 8-13-13 I want to apologize to everyone and especially those who have been my partners on swaps in the past 6 months. I've been going through a very rough time with depression, so much that I've been suicidal. I've had a rough year with my health, first my diabetes and then my depression, while dealing with divorce and just trying to survive. It's embarrassing to admit that I have this struggle, but I'm telling you now because I want you to know why I have been MIA and have been late with swaps. It was NEVER intentional, but my depression had gotten so bad that I couldn't do anything no matter how much I wanted to. I'm very sorry, and if I've offended anyone or missed mailing a swap, please let me know.
Hi, I'm Debbie, 46 from Texas I'm a divorced mother of 2 boys, ages 21 & 10. I love all crafts and recently started teaching myself to draw. I'm a big kid at heart.
My boys are my world!
I love inspiring bible verses, quotes and poems.
Being crafty helps relieve stress. I have some health problems which include diabetes, anemia, IBS and cirrhosis of the liver. I have good and bad days. My doctors aren't sure how I got liver damage. Good news is I'm stable now, but someday I may need a transplant. I pray that's many many years away. I enjoy reading and writing, especially poetry. Writing poems helped me deal with my feelings going through a divorce.
I love going to the movies, but can't afford to do that very much, so I love watching movies at home too. :-)

I've never been into sports until recently, and I prefer to watch basketball and baseball, but I do like football, it's just harder for me to follow. My fav teams are of course the Dallas Mav, Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys.
My oldest son is Charlie, he is 20 and he's a die hard sports fan, he loves basketball the most, but also loves football and baseball. He enjoys playing his Xbox games, reading and watching movies and his favorite tv shows. He really loves anything having to do with mythology, such as Zeus, Hercules, etc. (He just started writing his own mythological book.) He has a dog named Thor that he absolutely loves. He became a black belt in karate at age 9 and his skills are just as strong today, if not stronger. He enjoys teaching me and his little brother karate and basic defensive skills.
My youngest son is Landon and he's 10. He likes basketball, playing video and board games, drawing and being creative. He also likes Legos, and Beyblades, and loves working jigsaw puzzles, and he's very good at it. He loves watching his favorite shows on tv. He loves to sing, he's always coming home from school and singing me a new song he learned in music class. He loves to read!! He loves animals just like his mom and enjoys spending time with the family dogs, Gus and Thor! I'm a proud mom of both my boys!!!
