About Me

VG

Hello!

I'm so excited to be a part of swap-bot. 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 love to do custom 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 three crazy dogs.

I am currently getting back in to making ATCs and am also working on my sketchbook for The Brooklyn Sketchbook Project as well as the Canvas Project. If you haven't heard of it, check out this link: https://www.sketchbookproject.com/

Here are some more of my interests. Please feel free to message me if you'd like to know more or set up a one-on-one private swap:

Hello!

Hope you like this small llama taking a bow. I have the same one on my profile and thought it was too cute not to share.

Have a great day!

Thank you! You just made my day 😊🌷🌷💜💛💚 The person in your CHIHUAHUA comment does seem batshit crazy(I don't know if you visited that profile at that point, it actually said "don't crib if my ATC is 5" off or even 8" off" 😲 ... maybe just hold on on those swaps .... ❤

DeAnna, I'm really happy leaving you this profile message. I also like crafts and arts like you. I can send you a card I decorated if you want. We can become pen pals too for snail mail. Just a suggestion though. Hope you have a great day ahead of you.

Love, Tinni

P.S. - Please don't forget to rate me.
