I am here to exchange Arts and crafts.These are the handmade things I am into making.
►Handmade postcards sent without an envelope.I love mail art like Ray Johnson .
►ATCs .I especially like hand-drawn or painted.My favorite Atcs are Mexican sugar skulls ,skeletons and Day of the dead related but NOT the scary or crossbone.I also collect ATCs about postage stamps or postal themes, abstract and steampunk.
►I ADORE altar shrines.I have made many dia de los muertos theme wooden shadow boxes with miniature offerings,flowers,food,etc I am also into matchbox shrines(with a diorama inside).
►I have started making cabinets of curiosities with all my weird natural oddities,apothecary,science,cryptology stuff, found objects,bones,old jars,archeological items ,etc
I am in my 30's,live in the country in Canada and love to garden ,make Arts and crafts and travel a lot . I speak french and spanish.I am a visual artist making intallations.I recycle and work with natural materials in my land art .Contemporary and conceptual Art is my thing.I also go for abstract.

I will be happy with anybody's artwork or gift but I tend to not like cute stuff or girly like kawaii, cartoon characters,stuffies, victorian children,cute animals ,fairies and too much cute scrapbooking elements on paper crafts .I dont like it as much when there is not much handmade work on ATCs or postcards like when they are made with images printed out or stickers as the focal point . Let's say that I Go more for the artsy experimental style than the neat and go more for the dark than the sweet . Say that I like art that men could like,so I for sure dont show them pink bunnies or tinkerbell. I believe in freedom of expression so if you are not like me and this is not at all your style....you do what you like ,this is only a fact about myself and I will cherish anything that you made with care !
I go for handmade but here are some other things I like : Again,anything that has a skeleton or skull or has to do with day of the dead, Postcards, things for my altar shrines like miniatures,religious objects(even if I am not religious) ,miniature food. antique or vintage things like old skeleton keys ,old advertisement,tins,small keepsake boxes,old greeting cards,labels ,etc.. Weird curiosities and natural wonders for my curiosity cabinets. Artistic or cool picture frames, anything fengshui,spiritual or esoteric like good luck charms or objects,aromatic oils,tarot... natural paper,rice paper or recycled handbound note books.Imported crafts from another country.
If you would like to do a private trade with me I would love to .
