My name is Helene. I am a nemophilist๐ŸŒฒ living on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of Canada.

My most favoured crafts include mixed media card making, gelli printing, assemblage, collage, and rubber stamping. I like layering with paints, papers, inks, pens, textured papers, and combining projects.

I like rich, deep, opulent colours and metallic;I use a lot of copper and gold tones in my arts and crafts, but go through phases of working with one or two preferred colours at a time and making lots with it before moving on to something new.

I am drawn to darker themes and images and am not into super cutesy/kawaii themes and I really don't like stickers.

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

Some preferences:


  • 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:

  • foam shapes or kid crafts

  • colouring pages

  • city postcards

  • dollar store or kawaii stickers

  • cartoon characters, princess, Disney

  • Please do not send me stickers

  • Please don't send your current ephemera like yesterday's bus ticket, receipts, labels etc. It will likely just get recycled.

Things Important to me:

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