About Me

Hello, I'm back after 10 years! Will join in on occasional swaps. I am now a Grandma and am a vintage and antique dealer. I'll update things soon.

Hello, my name is Deb and I have always liked art, I am self taught mostly, have taken some local art classes just for fun. Married for 32 years, 2 wonderful grown children!I attended a vocational school for sewing. I used an oil can for a collage project for creative writing during the energy crisis in the 70's, I got an A and the teachers asked if he could keep it to show as an example in future classes. At the age of 19; I designed and made my wedding gown. I was a stay at home Mom with a small craft show business. Now I work at a school, the kids are moved out of the house and I am enjoying making things again. I like different, creative things that are simple and fun! I sew, enjoy all kinds of crafts, do photography and cake decorating. I also enjoy altered art, assemblages and making things with "junk"! I don't knit! But I do own a scroll saw and know how to use it! Recycling vintage jewelry is fun! A little bling never hurts anyone, neither does rust!

Comment: Hello Debra, Thank you for being my partner for the "D Profile Based ATC" Swap. The collage ATC reflects beautifully things I love, things I like do, and an important day in my life. You did a wonderful job of placing things so each thing got a place of prominence. I will proudly add this ATC to my "Letter-Profiled ATC series." I look forward to having a complete set. I hope we have further opportuntities to swap with one another in the future. Barb sleepingrover2010 P.S. Thank you for the extras you sent me.
