A little about Me


💜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). 💙💙💙💝 (adding 2 more boys 💙💙 to the greats in May) And a mom to one fur baby Skeeter, a Chihuahua-Italian Greyhound mix. He’s ROTTEN!!

My Flickr photos

As I finish my swaps I will upload pictures to my Flickr account. So if you want to be surprised don't peek. But I would like any and all comments on pictures.

Crafts I love to do

Handmade cards
Handmade envelopes
Altered art
Junk/Art Journaling
Sewing/Rag Quilts
Handmade embellishments/pockets/tags
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 R Memory Keepers Envelope punch board, the tag and pocket punch boards and the mini ABC punch board, boxes punch board, flower punch board, frame punch board & mini to large file folder punch board. If you would like any crafts from these boards message me and we could possibly work out a swap.

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:
Fairie Dust
Winter Wonderland
Fairie Wings
Lost in paradise

Another of my favorite paper products is Stamperia. They have some beautiful 12x12 paper pads. Pricey but beautiful! They come in 10 double sided sheets with tags & ephemera in a few of the pages. I have about 8 different sets.

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!

Tags to send & waiting for

Postage & how I send & Ratings

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.

Comment: OMG Deb, I am freaking out about this Alice in Wonderland triple pocket book! It is ADORABLE! Thank you so much! Where do you get this low profile Velcro? I have only seen it in the videos but need to get some because the stuff in my sewing kit is too thick. Maybe it’s with paper crafts at the craft store?

Your generosity is beyond words, Best swap Ever!!! Have a fantastic 2021 ~ Judy
Response: I am so happy you loved your swap!! I too love the fairies paper (Graphic45 Fairy Wings) I just received it and the floral (Graphic45 Blossoms) for Christmas. The mini file folders are made with a We R Memory Keepers punch board. I believe it’s called a Tab punch board. I can make 3 sizes of file folders with it, Small (mini), Medium & large. I love all my WRMK punch boards. Thank you so much for joining the swap & for the awesome rating, 5 & ❤️.

Hi Deb, Just wanted to tell you I'm so glad to hear you are doing better! I missed the memo about your illness. Take good care of you and stay safe! Hugs, Bonnie ❤️

shirleyinCA on Sep 13, 2020:

I read you like Red Beer - is it for real? How much tomato juice in how much beer? Is there a reason it needs to be Bud Light or will any beer do? I dislike beer but thought I'd serve it to my sons sometime!

shirleyinCA on Sep 13, 2020:

Just letting you know all the ATC Jams from CPG arrived! Thanks - I've added to your new one and it is getting mailed along tomorrow.

sassafrass on Sep 8, 2020:

So glad to hear you are on the mend! Take care of yourself, Deb!

susieq11 on Sep 8, 2020:

So glad to hear that you are home. Praying for a quick recovery for you.
