About Me

My name is Denise.

PLEASE NOTE: I haven’t been active for a couple of years. My last 2 swaps did not go well. I have contacted them, but no response yet. I am trying to redeem myself. I am starting with small simple swaps. Please give me a chance to make it up to the SwapBot community.

My goal in life is to move back to my hometown of Lawrence KS. GO KU!!

I'm one of those annoying, happy, cheery morning people that non-morning people love to hate.

People tell me that I am pretty optimistic. One of those the-glass-is-half-full kind of people. I think the grass is always greener just means I have to mow less!!

I love science fiction (especially Star Trek), astronomy, books and the great outdoors.

Favorite Books

I read all the time. That may be a little exaggeration, because I have to sleep sometime. My favorite authors are Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, Richard Kadrey, Connie Willis and Sherri S. Tepper. I read mostly science fiction, and non-fiction history.

Favorite Movies

I love movies. I could live in a movie theater and be happy. I can never pick just one when someone asks for my favorite.

I love old monster, B-movies from the 50s and 60s, like The Crawling Hand or The Thing with 1000 Eyes.

I like old musicals.

I re-watch 80's movies all the time.

Two movies I never get tired of watching, no matter how many times I have seen them: Dogma and Spaceballs.

And, I will watch anything with Simon Pegg.

Favorite Crafts

My grandmother taught me to do ribbon embroidery. My mom taught me to crochet. I used to do cross stitch, but my eyes have gotten too bad.

My favorite is recording memories in my smash journal. I've been keeping one since my teenage years, I didn't realize there was a name for it until recently. I use all kinds of printed papers, die cuts, stickers, ephemera, photos, and more. I like using watercolors, pastels (chalk and oils) and charcoal. It's like journaling, but with a little art and collecting thrown in.

Themes and other things

Favorite Animals: turtles, pink flamingos, penguins, bugs and insects

Favorite Comics: Tank Girl, Fables, X-Men

Favorite Colors: orange, pink and green

Favorite Flowers: Shasta daisies and black eyed susans. Any daisies really.

Other stuff I like:

Sailboats and hot air balloons

Plaids, polka dots and paisley

robots, aliens, spaceships and rockets

Old barns, silos and windmills

Colorful, antique, strange, fanciful or unique doors

mythical creatures ie: dragons, Bigfoot, sphinx, banshees....

Random Things

I can always use die cuts and ephemera for my journals.

I hand draw mazes.

I hate the cold, so late spring to early fall is my favorite time of the year. I try to spend as much time outdoors as I can.

One day I would really love to go to Russia.

I have a fascination for conspiracy theories. The weirder the better. I just like to figure out how they got started, where they came from and other random information.

I am "totally" in love with Simon Pegg. If I were a teenage girl my walls would be covered with posters.

Do you ever get a really great rating with a wonderful comment, then wonder, wait, what did I send? I'm pretty forgetful. Maybe I should write this stuff down.

Thank you for the nice letter! I enjoyed reading about your relationship with your daughter. It sounds like you are adjusting well to being an empty nester. Take good care!


I feel like writing about TAG

Thank you for stopping by my profile and checking on me- I am actually on the Gulf side of Florida, rather than the Atlantic; so we just had a bit of wind from Matthew over here. I appreciate your concern though! Hugs, Tracy
