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: Debbie: I love, love, love your tea bag tags!! Front and back they are just beautiful. The vintage images you used for two of them make me think of Jane Austen heroines and your layering and color choices are perfect. And I love the farm animals standing atop each other! That's an awesome stamp and love how you embellished it. And thanks so much for the extra goodies - the little flowers are really pretty. Always love swapping with you!

Comment: OMG...what I already said about my disorganization and procrastination. I need an overhaul of my whole life. Another amazing piece of art, for which I thank you sincerely...please just keep on doing what you do! Your little artworks always take pride of place on my inspiration board until I receive another envelope from you, at which time I move the previous batch to the binder. I just love swapping with you, dear Debbie!!!

Comment: I was so sure I'd rated this...I will never again open mail without my laptop open on my lap! Debbie, this is the MOST adorable ATC..I absolutely love the wee creatures living amongst the mushrooms, and your embellishments are sheer perfection! I have never seen a mushroom die cut before, but it does not surprise me at all that you have one! You are the Queen of Gorgeous Embellishments...and Details! The shimmering gold wings on the fairy are perfection. I don't know what you used, but I want some! Thank you for always sending such amazing little works of art!

Comment: Debbie! I came home from vacation to your fantastic package! The glassine envelope creation is just lovely. I am stealing the idea to put a music page on the back of the stack to show through in the envelope. Great idea! The extras were super generous and bill and will find homes as soon as I get back to my table! Thanks soooo much! nancy
