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.
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...
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: 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.
