UPDATE: I am not currently doing any swaps due to a changed personal situation and address. It is also difficult for me to get to my post in the previous address, so please bear with me on the ratings, there may be some delay. I will rate everything and will always contact you first, if I did not receive something. Thanks for your understanding and patience!
Hi everyone, nice to meet you!
I'm Helena, and I LOVE snailmail. Mail art, stamps, post cards, handmade envelopes - anything to do with it.
I'm also an avid philatelist and stamp collector. Stamps make my day, any day. :D I am currently building two collections for stamps shows - the themes are folklore / fairy tales, and space / astronauts. But of course I will be happy with any kind of stamps that you might send.
I have accumulated quite a stash of stickers, stationery, post cards, jewelry making materials, and paper ephemera. It would be fun to swap some of it - especially as I cannot seem to quit buying more, haha.
Looking forward to joining many postcard & mail art swaps!
EDIT: I notice that I haven't received some ratings for swaps sent long ago already. It seems to go fast to Europe and Canada but not so fast to USA. If you are wondering - Yes, I've sent all my swaps! Will contact recipients after 1 month to see what the status is. And you can always message me, I won't bite! :)
Creative writing, punch needle work, philately, science fiction, cyberpunk, videogames, stickers, tea, chocolate, mail art, yoga, new age, healing & reiki (but you do not need to be into these, and we do not need to talk about it), jewelry making, history.
I will be happy with any sort of postcards you want to send. However if you run out of ideas, here are a few themes that I like.
Theme Interests: Transportation - Trains - Airplanes and fighter planes - Anything Sci-Fi - Mythical Creatures - Mythologies - Fairytales - Ancient Egypt - Ancient China - Anything Japanese - Animals - Hayao Miyazaki - Medieval times, Middle Ages - Castles - Disney (especially Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Pocahontas) - New Age Themes (such as Reiki, Healing etc.) - Astronomy - Winter - Water - Nautical - Religions of the World - Folklore
Black - Yellow - Anything Blue - Pink - Hot Pink
I saw another swapper having such a list on their profile, and thought it was a great idea :)
Apollo space flights - Andromeda - Aeroplanes - Agartha - Bees - Birds - Buses - Candy - Cinnamon - Cinnamoroll - Dragons - Elves - Foxes - Fishes - Faeries - Flowers - Ginger - Gargoyles - Hayao Miyazaki - Incense - Japan - Koalas - Lavender - Lemon - Lime - Love - Light - Monkeys - Nautical - Orchids - Oceans - Pandas - Parrots - Quantum Physics - Roses - Russia - Rilakkuma - Space Ships - Stones - Seashells - Trains - Transportation - Underground - Vanilla - Whales - X?? - Yuri Gagarin
I like everything except plain black tea!
Favourites: Green, flavoured black (for example spices or berries), white tea, infusions. I LOVE everything with orange, chocolate, vanilla, lavender and raspberry flavours.
I love any stamps!
However, I especially collect:
Space and astronomy themes
Japan - Finland - Greenland - Iceland - Sweden - Vikings - Folklore and Fairy Tales - Ghana - Hong Kong - Taiwan - Russia - Austria (but I have most of them) - Croatia - Medieval times - Antarctica Expeditions - Asian FDCs - Chinese New Year - Turkey - New Zealand
I am interested in private stamp swaps, especially if you are in (or have many stamps from) any of the countries mentioned above. It would be fabulous to find a regular swap partner / postcard pal for this purpose. Also if you collect Austrian or Finnish stamps, I have regular access to those, and will happily work out a swap, regardless of your country.
