About Me

VG

Hola fellow swappers!

Thank you for visiting my profile. Here is a little 411 about me; I'm a reliable person, good at meeting deadlines, and love to create. If you would like to see some of my work I'm Proff_V @ instagram. I'm always up for private swaps so feel free to message me your ideas.

I'm a professor of Communication, Women & Gender Studies, a mom, and married. I love travel and adventure, creating art, and hanging out with my family and crazy dogs.

My favorite swaps are ATCs, ATCoins, and DAJs, but once in a while I'll participate in others depending on the topic/theme.

Here are some of my other interests:

Craft Skills & Interests: Photography, Jewelry Making, ATCs, Scrapbooking & Card Making, Postcards, MiniZines, Crafting with "CRAP"; trash to treasure, Painting: watercolor or acrylic, Quilting/sewing [adult throw blankets, funky baby quilts, burp clothes, bibs, purses, aprons, tulle tutus, fabric art]

*Favorite Artists: Georgia O'Keefe, Frida Kahlo, Judy Chicago, Mary Beth Edelson, Lynn Hershman Leeson...to name a few.

*Favorite Colors: black, red, turquoise/colors of the sea [blues/greens]

*Hobbies: arts & crafts, travel, yoga, swimming, scuba diving, writing, collecting Dia de Los Muertos dolls, skulls, and other small items, collecting sea shells, mermaid art, and drinking coffee.

*Favorite Holidays/Themes/Issues: Mermaids, Dia de los Muertos, Eve, Snakes & Apples, Coffee, Halloween, Rosie the Riveter, Virgin de Guadalupe, Cherries, Rockabilly, Tattoos, Vampires, Witches, Dogs, Insects, Travel, Sea/Beach, Sharks, Guitar, Classic Mexico, Caribbean, Indonesia, Recycled Art, Funky colors/patterns of the 60s-70s...especially floral, Dark Art, Bad Words, Nudity, Kink/BDSM, feminism/feminist art, contemporary civil rights and social justice movements, activist art. Again, these are my interests and I will never send you anything you find offensive; unless you ask for it ; ) !

Music: Some of my favorite singers/bands are Buckcherry, Maroon 5, The Black Keys, The Killers, Blondie, Tori Amos, Amy Winehouse, In This Moment, Motley Crue, Guns and Roses, Kiss, AC/DC, Chris Cornell, Pop Evil, Portugal the Man; most classic rock, current adult alternative, some R&B, and a little pinch of hard rock.

TV/Film: I don't watch much tv but I love series such as Six Feet Under, Big Love, True Blood, American Horror Story, Narcos, Orange is the New Black, Dark, Love Sick, Black Mirror...

*Dislikes: Disney, Wal-Mart, McDonalds, Kawaii or "cutsie" items/designs, fluorescent colors.

Please note: I ALWAYS send my swaps and I ALWAYS send on time or early. If there is any issue, please contact me here on Swap-bot, email [email protected], or on instagram @ proff_v

I look forward to learning about, and swapping, with you!

Take care,

DeAnna

Comment: Super cute! I really like how you planned your design a bit larger the the ATC space. The "L"s remind me of Lavern's from the television show Lavern and Shirley. Love it!
Response: True! The "L" does look like that. Yes, I often extend above so that it still fits in a sleeve. If this doesn't work for you I'm happy to remake them.

I really loved how you finished the Vintage ATC jam with the Vintage theme-the charm-the lace-beautiful touches. I'm ready to work on the gorgeous watercolor background set you sent-all my favorite colors. See you in "Jam Land"-georgene
