A fun party I am joining in on this weekend!
To those who are new to visiting my blog, WELCOME. My name is Debbi, I reside in western Oregon in the small rural town of Sublimity. We enjoy a quick commute in Salem, Oregon's capital city. We are within 90 minutes of the Pacific ocean beaches and 45 minutes from the Cascade mountain snow activities in winter as well as many beautiful lakes and rivers. My children are grown and I have two little granddaughters (pics at the bottom of my blog) Lynsie Jean and Lilian Grace. We are very lucky that they do live close by and see them often.
I am a textile and graphic artist as well as an avid cottage gardener with a passion for old fashioned and English roses, especially pink roses. Many of my art designs reflect my love of the colors of the garden.
A little over a year ago, I took the leap to quit the "day job" and follow my bliss. Some say I retired, but I say nope, I am self employed now and really loving what I do!
My hubby Jim is a retired police officer, and together we enjoy traveling to tropical destinations. The Big Island of Hawaii is our favorite, but Key West Florida comes in at a close second.
I have been blogging on this blog since 2006, some years more than others and I tend to blog a lot more during the warm months because I love to share my gardening and traveling adventures. In 2009 I split in 2 blogs, this remaining my personal blog and forming a blog solely for my textile art website business.
I hope you will follow my blog!!
AND please head over to my other blog to see my art and throw your name in for the lovely
