HELLO! My name is Helene. I am a nemophilist🌲 living on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of Canada. My little family has chickens, bunnies, and a year round food garden on our urban lot. We are avid campers and I love our time in the woods. When not camping, nature walking or gardening, I am most likely crafting , making or building something. I take photos of everything.

My most favoured crafts include mixed media, gelli printing, assemblage, and collage. I also love stamping. I like layering so some of my swaps can take days to make as I let each layer of paint or ink dry.

Swaps I am looking for are mostly handmade paper swaps and paper and craft supply swaps.

I make and trade ATCs, ATCoins, Flipbooks, Skinnys, Twinchies, Inchies, collage cards, geli backgrounds, master cards, collaboration pieces, handmade embellishments, handmade greeting cards and I am always interested in a craft challenge swap.

I like rich, deep, opulant colours...all colours except pink unless it is minimal. I love metallics and use a lot of copper and gold tones in my art, but go through phases of working with one or two preferred colours at a time until I get bored with the combo and switch it up.

I am drawn to darker themes and images and am not into super cutesy/kawaii themes. I do not like divisive themes like religion and I dont want to hear about it unless it is earth/nature/goddess based. I am however interested in Hallowe'en and witchy themes.

I really don't like stickers. Keep em away.

SOME IMAGES/THEMES I WOULD ENJOY:

skulls, bones, and anatomy

flora and fauna - leaves, trees, forest creatures

suns, moon, stars

bats, birds, butterflies, bugs

vintage, victorian, and gothic themes

mythical creatures, mythical animals, fairies, gnomes, magical beings......

elements and elemental correspondences

anything handmade by you

travel/exploration

First Nation's art and themes (locally we have Coast Salish art which is incredible)

themes from the ocean, the sky, and space

**

Please don't send me.....

foam shapes or kid crafts

colouring pages

city postcards

dollar store or kid stickers

I really REALLY don't want stickers

No religious or holiday stuff please, unless I have specifically joined a swap for it

cartoon characters, princess, disney

Please do not send me stickers

I am not interested in your current ephemera like yesterday's bus ticket, receipts, labels etc. It will likely just get recycled. Truly vintage or Tim Holtz style only please.

Things important to me

I am an advocate of the environment, equality, the right to women's reproductive health and the right to choice, and I am an ally of our First Nation communities whose land I am grateful to live, work, and craft on.

I love suns moons and stars

It was lovely to receive an envelope from one of my most favorite places in the world, Victoria B.C. I've spent many happy hours on your island and look forward to many more.

Comment: It finally arrived after 3 weeks , Yay! Love the decorated envie and the goodies inside. However, I have to point out a little warning for you.. that when taping together an envie (especially for overseas) please do use another tape under the washi since it's otherwise easily caught in the postal machinery and is easily torn or even opened. Maybe that's why mine came a week later than the per usual.. I don't know.. but it arrived, hopefully with all the contents that you packed within. Thank you :)
Response: Thank you so much for that warning. I didn't know! I hope the envelope was not damaged too much. Thanks for the stellar rating and take care!

For what must be the 20th time!!!!... instead of writing a lot in the comment section, I just wrote that to see if it would go through. When it did I went back and wrote on it.. twice. Nothing. But thank you many times over for the great 3 letters sets of vintage stationery! β™₯β™₯ Happy Note Card Feb #2
