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 13 years ago. Our son still lives down in San Diego and I miss him so much! Happily, our lovely daughter has moved up here in our cute little town and I couldn’t be more pleased. We have such a wonderful time together. She is also a Swapbot member and we enjoy doing our crafts together. 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 46 years, and a very sweet pitbull named "Molly" and a sweet bunny who likes to give kisses.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is country...Brothers Osborne, 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: What a sweet little girl in a big, big hat! Really unique image. The lace trim and all the embellishments are so pretty and your stenciling is perfect! I love the music page as background--I always do--and the florals in the corners. Thanks once again for those gorgeous extras--yellow for springtime!

Comment: Debbie, your tag is (as always) gorgeous! Love those sweet robins (?) and they're such a nice size. Love the dimension, the lovely lace embelishments, and those tiny strips of golden trim. The one with the red in the center is BEAUTIFUL! And thank you 100x for those amazing extras! I am IN LOVE with those Hostess Checks and those vintage pastel 'Birdie Darling' papers (I'm hoarding those ;+) Thanks for always being a wonderful partner!

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!
