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: Thank you for the fun Halloween card and envelope - I have never seen that much washi tape on an envie before, ha! We normally host a Halloween party (50 people or so) and go all out on decorations and a maze in the front yard but due to Covid, we have no plans and Trick or Treating is discouraged, so I don't want to decorate and get kids' hope up that we will have candy. Normally I sit out front with a fire pit and maybe a friend and we scare people as they go through the maze (and we drink rum and coke as we are pirates!) and pass out candy...I am lost without Halloween this year - first time in 40 years our house will be "dark". :( Happy Halloween - stay safe and be well!
