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 also have my own little ATC JAM group on Facebook called "In a JAM"...check us out!

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 three crazy dogs.

My favorite swaps are ATCs but once in a while I'll participate in others depending on the topic/theme. I am also working on my Canvas Project for The Brooklyn Art Library. If you haven't heard of it, check out this link: https://www.brooklynartlibrary.com/canvasproject/ My word is "concoction".

Here are some of my other interests:

Craft Skills & Interests: Photography, Jewelry Making, ATCs, Scrapbooking & Card Making, 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 dkvarela@utep.edu, or on instagram @ proff_v

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

Take care,

DeAnna

Comment: Thank you for the lovely ATC! Beautiful color palette and embellishments -- you did a great job with the roping. I used to live in Florida and I miss ocean breezes. You were very generous with the extra ephemera. All will be fun to use. Thanks for being such a wonderful swap partner. <3<3<3

Comment: Oh, too funny! This is the mermaid I sent to you in May for the mermaid ATC inside and out! I'm glad you were able to use it. I like the way you modified the waist area of the tail.
Response: I'm a dork! Lol. I copied her because I love her and want to keep the pattern/original you sent me. Would you like me to make a different paperdoll ATC for you? XO, D

p.s. love your "rock lobster" atc over on your instagram feed. :)

Good morning! I want to thank you for the fun variety of treats you sent me for the "Tag me...but I send to you" forum tag. :) I've always been crazy about surprise "grab bags," and this one was extra-special since you clearly chose things just for me. I appreciate the time and care you put into this lovely and generous gift. I'm excited to use these things in my crafting and correspondence. The stamped images are fantastic, and I absolutely adore the painted envelopes you made: they've inspired me to try some new techniques myself. Thanks again, and have a wonderful week!
