About Me

I live in a small, rural town in the Deschutes National Forest in central Oregon...a long-time dream of mine to live in the forest...love it so much! I was born in San Diego, CA and lived there my entire life until my husband and I moved to Oregon 10 years ago. Our daughter and son still live down in San Diego and I miss them so much! I received an Associate's Degree in Science and studied Animal Health and became a Registered Veterinary Technician...I worked over 17 years in that field. I have also studied Medical Transcription. I am an avid bird watcher! I am a very active pinner on Pinterest. I live with my husband, my high-school sweetheart whom I have been married to for over 44 years, and a very sweet pitbull mix named "Molly" and a sweet bunny who likes to give kisses.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is country...Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert just to name a few.

Favorite Books

My favorite books are Gone With the Wind and The Twilight Series

Favorite Television

My favorites are Games of Thrones, Homeland and Billions. I also love watching This is Us, Animal Planet, Oregon Field Guide, the Food Network, Breaking Bad, Bate's Motel and The Walking Dead.

Favorite Crafts

I have a passion for tole and decorative painting which I did a lot of years ago. I have also dabbled in beginning quilting. Not sure why, but I have gotten away from doing crafts and I want to change that! The crafts that I am excited about doing are decorative painting, quilting, fabric and paper crafts which I am hoping that being a member of Swap-bot will help get me going! I really want to learn how to make wonderful smelling handmade soaps.

My likes are:

I have a passion for BIRDS...chickadees and robins are just a couple of my favorites.. and wildlife...especially SQUIRRELS, bunnies and wolves. I love vintage and shabby chic. Favorite colors are red, pink, blue, purple. I love the scent of lavender. I love pitbulls. I also love cooking and gardening. I love bird houses. I love all things that have to do with country living...chickens, roosters, barns, canning, picnics, old-fashioned country antiques.

Comment: Oh how I love the vintage "Father Christmas" images...so you know how thrilled I am to have this beauty in my collection. I'm making a Christmas wreath, and will punch tiny holes in my favorite Christmas ATCs and other wee pieces of art, and I will use jewelry wire to attach them to a faux evergreen wreath. This ATC will be front and center, for sure!

Comment: Thanks for the VJP. It is very pretty. Where do you get the tiny narrow edging on the card (the pink edge)? Thanks for the extras. the mapkin is beautiful and will be great for decoupage.
Response: Thank you Martha. I purchase the little pink trim on Etsy from a shop called 32North Supplies. They have lots of colors, shapes and sizes. It is called Dresden paper or trim.

Comment: Beautiful atc, Debbie! Love the varied thrush birds! We have them here, too! I used to think they were just strange robins but when my son morphed into a birdnerd, he told us what they were! Thank you so much for the amazing atc!

Thank you (and your sweet daughter) very, very much for the thoughtful and beautiful Christmas gift. I love everything so much...that gorgeous bird ornament will have pride of place on my tree this year! It is exquisite. I just love you guys, and not because you bought me a present, either! Christmas hugs to both of you!
