9/18/2020: The mail service is really weird right now! July 24th I sent a destash envie to Houston TX (4hours south) it did not arrive until September 1st!! August 24th I sent 2 priority envelope swaps, one to Oregon & one to North Carolina. The one to Oregon arrived in 4 days, the one to NC is sitting in a distribution center in Coppell, TX and has not been updated since Aug 29th. It says it’s in transit, but investigation on it shows it’s still in Coppell. UPDATE: I received a text that this package was delivered today 9/21/2020!! Three weeks to arrive! And in a “postal body bag” TOTALLY EMPTY!!! Photos on my Flickr & Instagram My poor partner. We take a chance every time we send our mail. 😳 I will gladly resend if you don’t get your swap. I will also send you a tracking # on larger packages I mail. Hopefully it will get better soon.
9/1/2020 I am home!! With a nice assortment of meds. I’m feeling much better. I can now walk from one end of the house to the other without stopping halfway feeling like I’m going to pass out. Hubby & sister taking care of me and making me take it easy. That works for me. Looking forward to a good nights sleep tonight.
💜In loving memory of Mom 2/27/38-9/9/19💜
When you find people who not only tolerate your quirks. But celebrate them with glad cries of “me too!” be sure to cherish them. Because those weirdos are your Tribe.
Be around the light bringers, the magic makers, the world shifters, the game shakers. They challenge you, break you open, uplift & expand you. They don’t let you play small with your life. These heartbeats are your people. These people are your Tribe.
I’m still looking for my tribe.
Taking a little time to update my profile. Hey there, Hi, Howdy 🤠 and hello. Nice to meet you, and glad you stopped by. My name is Deborah, but prefer to be called Deb or Debbie. My hubby is the only person I know that actually calls me Deborah, dad calls me Deb & mom always called me Debbie.
I’m a down to earth Texas country girl. Grew up in small town & now living in the country. Where you can sit on the porch at night and listen to the coyotes & watch the fireflies. I am married to the love of my life that actually supports all that I do, be it shopping online for craft supplies to being my Dad’s caregiver!
I’m a mom to 2 daughters (2 son-in-laws), a Mimi to 6 grandkids (1 grand-daughter-in-law & 2 grandsons-in-laws) and 4 precious GREAT grand children (3 boys & girl). 💙💙💙💝 And a mom to one fur baby Skeeter, a Chihuahua-Italian Greyhound mix. He’s ROTTEN!!
New love!! Making Junker Jane type dolls!!
ATC’s are my favorite craft to work on. I LOVE making and receiving ones with a 3D effect. I love the demension, the textures any raised element brings to that little 2.5” x 3.5” work of art. I have an awesome collection of both flat & 3D and I love them all. If anyone else shares this love, I’m up for private swaps. I try to match ATC’s to partners profile likes, but if it’s stated senders choice I’m usually going to do that.
Papercrafts: handmade envelopes (all sizes), cards, flip books (new love), journal pockets, and mini books are some of my latest “ohhh I like making these!” crafts. I’ll search YouTube for different tutorials to try out. I have the We Are Memory Keepers Envelope punch board, the WAMK mini envelope, the tag and pocket punch boards and the mini ABC punch board. My daughter picked up the flower punch board at Tuesday Morning for me, I’m still waiting for her to bring or send it to me.
Journaling: Junk & art are more or less for me. I jot down things that mom or dad might say, something the hubs did to lift my spirits or something hilarious he said (he’s really good at keeping me laughing these days). I can’t draw to save my life! I doodle good 🤣, but give me ephemera, stamps, Coptic markers, glue & embellishments and I’m a happy journalist! I also love to swap small art pages with others to add to my journals.
Besides having a large assortment of Tim Holtz products my newest addiction is Graphic 45! OMG, their papers & ephemera is gorgeous! So far I have:
Lost in paradise (New collection)
I’m up for private swaps on any of the above crafts
I’m also a big fan of Dyan Reaveley & Dina Wakley. I’ve started adding a few of their products to my supplies. My favorites right now are the Dylusions spray inks. Though they are a bit messy sometimes, the colors are awesome!!
I have a Cricut expressions and a huge assortment of cartridges, a Cuttlebug and Sizzix Big Shot. I’m slowly building my cutting dies collection. I have been using the Big Shot more recently than my cricut. I’m always up for a swap of die cuts. Message me if interested & I can send a list of dies & cartridges I have for you to choose from.
12/19. I love the Junker Jane monsters! I have a board on my Pinterest with a lot of them pinned. I want to try making one. If you have any suggestions, I am certainly open for them. Also if anyone would like to do a private swap with me, I’d love to do one after the holidays. Just send me a PM & we’ll set one up. Thanks!
We live in rural area. I am only able to leave the house once a week when I have someone to come sit with mom & dad. So I have bought a postal scale & stocked up on stamps. And if I'm in doubt on amount I will add extra stamps. So if EVER you get postage due from me please please let me know & I will send you stamps to cover. I will put my swap in the mailbox in the mornings, mail runs between noon & 3pm. I will not mark sent until any swaps have been picked up by postal carrier. Our PO closes at 3:30. So anything picked up at our rural mailbox will not be post marked til next day for those of you that check dates. And anything picked up Saturday will not be post marked til Monday. I keep track of my swaps when I send & start worrying after about a week when they are being sent in US. You may get a message from me when I feel like it's been an ample amount of time to arrive just checking with you. That way I can start on a resend. I rate as I open my swaps the day they arrive. If I haven't rated you, please contact me. It either means I got sidetracked with caring for my mom or it hasn't arrived. Ratings are important to all of us. I ask the same from you upon receiving from me. Thanks.
