In addition to original paintings and drawings, her art includes a line of jewelry and handbags.
Speaking of handbags, I LOVE this one! (anyone looking to buy me a Christmas gift would do well with this!)
How cool is this cowgirl with her little filly? (kind of reminds me of me...with Piper) These bags are all originals, with rich fabrics and fringe and have a funky cowgirl style all their own! You can find this bag, as well as many others, in Deb's Etsy store.
Along with her Etsy shop and her own website, Deb's art can be purchased through CafePress.
You can get her artwork on everything from coffee mugs to greeting cards, tote bags, calendars and journals.
Deb compares her approach to her Art the way a Cowgirl approaches her life. With passion. It's what she calls, "thinking like a Cowgirl." I share that philosophy with her. You don't have to wear a hat and boots and ride a horse to have the cowgirl spirit!
Deb's creations have been featured in many art magazines and exhibited in various galleries and art shows nationally and internationally. She also teaches at art retreats around the country.
I could go on and on, but even if I did, I would never be able to do justice to Deb's art. You really should treat yourself and go check out her Cowboy's Sweetheart blog and website. I bet you will find something to bring out your inner cowgirl.
Yee Ha Cowgirl!!

I discovered another great crockpot idea for chicken enchiladas the other day. I cooked 4 boneless chicken breasts in the crockpot with a can of Rotelle (or you can use a can of stewed tomatos and a can of diced green chiles). When it was done, I shredded it and removed it to bowl. I then added green enchilada sauce to the bottom of the crockpot, layered corn tortillas (no need to soft-fry them first), the shredded chicken and cheddar cheese. Repeat the layers 3 times, finishing with cheese on top. Turn the crockpot to low and heat for about 1/2 hour. This turned out delicious! And I was able to get my chores down while this finished heating. Did I mention I love the crockpot???
