About Me

Free Cat Hair With Every Swap!

I do market research professionally, and Swap-Bot is a great creative outlet for me! I love to make ATCs and decos when I have the time, and try all kinds of new crafts. I am vegetarian and a huge nerd. I am crazy about the sport of jugger, which I very much recommend checking out. I have two kitties who are my babies.

PM me if you want to do a private swap, need a new (sometimes slow AF) penpal, want excess decos (I usually have some), or want to ask me about jugger! :)

My top wishlist thing right now is house/home themed ATCs, especially mixed media. I want to get enough to do a 3x3 or bigger display for my office.

Swap Philosophy

I always try to go above and beyond in my swaps and aim for hearts. If you feel that I don't deserve a heart, I would genuinely like to know why. Even if it's negative feedback I want to improve my art and swapping. It drives me crazy to do what I think is a really nice job and feel like I've disappointed my partner!

I normally read profiles carefully and tailor swaps to my swap partners' preferences to the extent possible. I don't generally join swaps with tight deadlines, because I hate feeling rushed and I like doing art when I'm really in the mood for it. So I will try and do a nice job on your swap, and base it on your profile if I can, but it won't usually be sitting there all generically waiting to mail as soon as partners are assigned. Please let me know if something doesn't arrive. I will resend lost or missing swaps.

I don't think anyone should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. If hosts are expected to cover for flakers, they will do a better job screening them out. I hate to see situations where hosts ask for angels (or worse, the individual flaked on has to ask themselves) when it's the host's poor screening that caused the problem. I cringe every times I see a swap host saying they won't angel. Don't host if you won't angel! I will ALWAYS angel my hosted swaps. With that in mind, I am picky about screening people for my hosted swaps. I am usually willing to do private swaps with riskier people, but don't want to assume that risk for others in my swaps. I appreciate being notified if you see questionable swappers in my hosted swaps, but rest assured I will carefully look at all participants and ban anyone I find too risky, normally immediately before assigning partners.

Mix CDs
Pokemon Go (Team Valor & Blissey is the best Pokemon!)

Stuff I don't like

Animal cruelty
Excessive use of stickers
Religion - unless it's ironic or Chick Tracts, I love those for terrible reasons!

Regarding Deco Books

I don't mind getting homers/last page decos unless it's contrary to swap requirements.

I've been getting a lot of decos recently in which I've already done a page. This is generally against deco swap guidelines, and is contrary to the point of deco books. Decos should have each page done by a different person, and sending them back and forth between the same people is a waste of postage! PLEASE check your decos and make sure the recipient hasn't done a page in them yet before sending!

I'd prefer not to receive decos that aren't in some kind of book form. Loose pages are a nice idea, but to me that's not really the same as a deco book. Plus it's difficult or impossible to determine who has already had it when "pages" go missing.

I often have excess decos to swap. Please send me a PM with your address if you are interested.

I'm happy to try and answer questions if you are new to decos (or swapping generally). I've been here a while and can usually help with basic protocol questions!

Themes I like

Anything hand drawn
Arizona themed
Dr. Pepper
House/home theme
Magic: the Gathering
Monograms/my initials (E.W.)
Penis drawings (they crack me up, it's "accidentally" become a collection). No peen photographs though please!
Pokemon (esp. Blissey/Chancey, Magikarp, Hitmonchan)

If it's a pretty, well done ATC, PC, or deco I will probably love it no matter what the subject matter is. I am difficult to offend unless its related to animal cruelty or some kind of discrimination. That shit's not funny. I am generally amused by adult/sexual/nudity/swear word type themes. Particularly wieners. XD

Comment: Oh, I SO hoped I would get the hairy balls!!! They look so.... well proportioned... :D Thank you very much! I am not sure what you had in mind when you made the "tasteful" boner-ATC. I am absolutely not sure... O_O But I love it! :D And I am so happy about the paper pieces! Did you made them with a gelli plate? They look fantastic! My first gelli plat experiements failed completely. I think I have to watch some video tutorials.... Thanks for this amazing swap! :)
Response: Haha glad you like them! There are really good video tutorials for gelli plates... I've had great success with that! ETA I was thinking about this, and I realized "tasteful" in that context might be a USA colloquialism! Just means "classy" or "appropriate" so... trying to be ironic. That totally might not have come across! LOL

Comment: BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! I LOVE your As! The all-over-boner one looks so cool.... And the extra butthole-flower one is... Well... I laughed tears when I saw it and as soon as you receive my mail, you will know why. :D Just fantastic...! Thank you for those ATCs and the super cute sticker-extras!!!
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you like them! Pretty entertaining to make. XD

Whippet rated for FS: Deco Books #2 on Jun 14, 2018
Comment: Thank you for the two Deco Books you sent to me for the swap. Happy Summer!
Response: Happy summer to you too! I think I sent decos to you twice recently... I sent a RAK we'd talked about before with 2 decos, and then got you as my partner in this swap (with 3 decos). So you might have another on the way if you haven't already received both!

Comment: Loved the swap. Thank you for the goodies. And you're not boring! I'm thinking I should be more responsible now though. Ha! Happy Swapping.
Response: I'm so relieved it arrived (and wasn't boring LOL) I was worried it would get lost or something since the envelope was different. I'm way too responsible, I don't recommend it! LOL thanks for rating and for the heart!
Comment: I loved the list you put together for me. It put a smile on my face...
DeAnnaVarela rated for Mixed Media Boners on Apr 9, 2018
Comment: I love the ATC, the TWO extra ATCs, and that fab stationary.
Response: Glad you like them! I wish I'd gotten like 50 packages of that stationary when it was in stores... I think the whole brand was discontinued at some point and it was THE BEST.

Bad Clippy and friends arrived today! Thank you so much for picking some of my themes - each card is awesome. I couldn't tell what Clippy was saying in the sneak peek you posted the other day, so I really LOL'ed when I opened the envelope. He's gotta go up on my filing cabinet. Pickle and house will have homes on the fridge. Oh, and I love the stickers, too! Thanks yooou!
