About Me

I'm Debbie, a retired bookmobile driver, living with my husband and one old cat on a few acres in the Mojave Desert, and enjoying life. We have two married children and 3 grandsons, who keep us pretty busy. We attend a traditional church with pipe organ and hymns - I love the old ways.

I collect antiques and fountain pens, and I have way too many hobbies. My husband and I travel frequently, on cruise ships or in our motorhome. We both like camping, hiking, kayaking, antique and thrift stores, singing and playing instruments.

I pride myself on being prompt, so please let me know if a swap does not reach you in a timely manner. Also, I am new to Swap-Bot (but not to swapping), so please tell me if I make a mistake in fulfilling the requirements of a swap, and I will be happy to make it right.

Favorite Crafts

Spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, paper crafts, watercolor, oil painting, journaling, letter writing, beadwork and jewelry making, and more!

I always say that I don't want to start any new crafts, but that never works...

Favorite Music

I like many kinds of music, especially if I can sing it. I especially like classical, folk, classic rock, bluegrass, hymns, and even some opera. I sing in a community choir, and also play ukulele.

I don't like heavy metal, rap, or modern country music.

Likes/dislikes

Likes: I'm old fashioned (and old, too), and I love anything vintage or antique. Fancy stationery, fountain pens and inks, vintage postage stamps, and old postcards are some of my favorite things. I love all the Victorian colors - rose, cream, gold, dark/dusty greens, blues, purples, browns and grays, and black. My favorite animals are cats of all kinds. I also like everything Japanese, especially the more traditional styles of art and fashion. I love tea, coffee, and chocolate - all kinds. I have no allergies (Yay!) and I'm not terribly picky, either.

Dislikes: I'll happily accept any swaps that meet the requirements, but I'm not a fan of neon colors, glitter, graffiti-style art, etc. And definitely no profanity - that will go straight into the trash.

Things I'm looking for

Library cards and pockets

Small flattish embellishments that I can use on ATCs - I'm having a hard time finding them around here!

Mini (1/2" or so) paper or silk flowers

Old maps or pieces of them

Genuine vintage ephemera

Old paper of all sorts

Paper napkins with vintage-style designs

Comment: Debbie, what an amazing ATC! I love the Texas map and the many layers. Actually EVERYTHING was amazing, starting with the mail art envelope and terrific stamps. I will immediately use the library card, and the giraffe card is specacular! So thank you! Many hearts...stay well.

Comment: I love them - the two vintage ones are great but I especially love the painted black kitty on the blue background. It looks like my latest fur baby - KitKat - she's solid black and disappears into our navy blue carpet -we refer to her as the night fury.
Response: I had a gorgeous black cat with golden eyes - he was so sweet.

Comment: What a wonderful job on the coffee ATC, I'm still learning. I do use sturdy napkins and soak them in tea for a background. I have never seen coconut tea! I LOVE anything coconut!! SO nice to receive,and who doesnt need some chamomile during these times? Thank you so much!!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! I enjoy watercolor painting, so for this swap I used instant coffee so I could get the shades I wanted.
