About Me

Hi

IMPORTANT NOTE: If for any reason you don't receive something from me, please... PLEASE contact me before rating! We all know that sometimes objects are lost in the mail, and other times other important things happen, and it's fair to give an opportunity for an explanation. I'll NEVER give a bad rate to anybody without asking first what happened... and only if I don't get an answer... then I'll rate!! And that's FAIR!!

First of all I really want to apologize because I flake some swaps last year. I know that it was wrong, but some really bad stuff hapenned in my life. For exemple, my husband, who is a truck driver, had a big truck accident im May 2010, where he almost die, and couldn’t work for some time. Now I came here because I want to redeem myself, start over again, send the items that I should have sent and with that get new rates. I’m really sorry if I’ve desapointed you at the time, but if I were a real flaker I wouldn’t came here now. Thank you for understanding.

My name is Helena and I'm from Portugal. I'm 34 years old, I'm married and I have 2 little boys with 9 and 5 years old.

My hobbies are photography, drawing, painting, making tattoos (just learning yet) and reading. I've also started to practice kitesurfing and bodyboard ;) I love animals, I have a dog, 2 cats, 2 turtles ans some birds. The only thing I've really afraid are spiders.

I love to take long walks by the beach even in the winter. When it's cold I like to have tea or hot chocolat, I also like cappuccinos, a lot... Talking about chocolats, I think I'm addicted to those.

I'm at my second year at the university. I'm studying Visual Arts, I'm a bit nervous about this new adventure!!

Favorite Books

I love to read, and I haven't any favorit subject. I like fantasy books, policial, romances and real stories.

I have preference for some authors, Tolkien, Paolini, Stephen King, Dan Brown... and I don't remember anyone else at special.

Favorite Television

I like to watch some series: Grey's Anatomy, Dr. House, CSI, Despered Housewives... and when I was younger I used to watch the X-Files.

Favorite Movies

I love scientific fiction, comic movies, some real stories and romances too.

Favorite Crafts

I like to sew, trying new things, drawing, painting and as I said before, making tattoos. I like almost everything that includes a little bit of art and imagination.

Wish List

I love almost everything!! But I maybe have some preferences!

  • I like all kind of postcards, but not handmade please.
  • I'd like to receive some scrapbooking items because I don't find scrapbook materials where I live.
  • I use to live in Africa, so I love pretty mutch everything that it's related to that continent.
  • I love candys, but I'm specially addicted to chocolates ;)
  • I love hot drinks, teas, hot chocolates, coffees...
  • I love animals, specially cats; I'm thinking to start a cat collection of any kind: statues, frames, little cats, anything.
  • I like fantasy themed stuff, with unicorns, fairys, dragons, etc...
  • I love candles, scented candles, incense of any kind, and candle holders.
  • I like magnets to put on the fridge, can be with something from your country.
  • I love surprises, so I don't mind if you send me something that you'd like to receive yourself, so don't be afraid because even if I don't love it, I'll certainly like it anyway, I'll give a good rating!

Postcards

I prefer store bought PC, but I accept handmade if it's a swap requirement or the swap coordinator allow them.

I like every kind of postcards: with sight-views, citys, landscapes, with people, with animals, with art, old photos, vintage, any kind :)

Note: I like to receive my postcards naked and stamped, not in an envelope... only if you don't have another way of sending it or if it's a swap requirement, I will accept it!!

And if possible write the date please ;)

Comment: Thank you! What a sad card...aww.
Response: I know that's a sad card, but it's a campaign that they made to avoid children's drowning on swimming pools during the summer... just a "wake up call". Unfortunately there's still a lot of accidents every year :(

GEEZ!!! I feel so bad about the late assigment of partners for my PC swap senders choice. I have moved the date if you still want to trade. If not I understand.

I know your husband was recently in a very serious accident, but please say something!! I think everyone will understand the reasons why you didn't mail the swaps requirements in time!!
