Hello!

Greetings and many blessings to you

My name is Helene and I am nemophilist living on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.

I am keen to swap handmade postcards, artist trading cards, artist trading coins, 3x3s, inchies, twinchies, flipbooks, folders, pockets and other themed paper crafts."

I love rich, opulent colours and metallics. I use a lot of gelli printing in crafts and I love making layered mixed media projects of all kinds, but particularly if there is an added theme or creative challenge.

SOME IMAGES/THEMES I ENJOY:

ANYTHING HANDMADE BY YOU

  • skulls, bones, and anatomy

  • flora and fauna - leaves, trees, forest creatures

  • suns, moon, stars

  • bats, birds, butterflies, bugs, insects, and arachnids of all kinds, but especially the beetle and spider species

  • vintage, victorian, and gothic themes and images

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

  • elements and elemental correspondences

  • travel/exploration

  • First Nation's and Inuit art and themes (Coast Salish art below)

  • themes from the ocean, the sky, and space

HALLOWE'EN everything all the time

Please don't send me:

*religious quotes or images.....

  • foam shapes or kid crafts

  • colouring pages

  • city postcards

  • kawaii stickers

  • cartoon characters, princess, Disney

  • Please don't send your current ephemera like yesterday's bus ticket, receipts, labels etc.

I would very much prefer to receive a partially destroyed or water damaged package than an envelope completely covered in packing tape. I can reuse the paper easier without the tape too. Thank you!

Important to me

I am an ally of the environment, equality, and anyone who identifies as one from the LGBTQ2+ community. I am VERY passionate about the right to women's reproductive health and the right to reproductive choice, and I am an ally of all First Nation communities whose land I am grateful to live, work, play, and craft on.

I don't have all the the perfect paper punches and cutters. I do most of my cutting by hand. I'm not a surgeon, so sometimes this makes my crafts a little rough on the edges. I do my best and I like the look. I also won't re-send unless my package has not arrived to you in over a month past the date I've sent, even to the United States or Canada. Too many times both packages end up arriving and it takes time to make things.

Thank you so much for the do-over for the WIYM: Junk Journal Supplies #19 -- totally unexpected and unnecessary...but such a nice surprise. Was not you fault the mail system damaged package, but very kind of you to resend. Thank you so much!
