Greetings and many blessings to you

MARCH 2022 - I have three completed "ATC bags" I am looking to trade. There hasn't been an atc bag swap in a few weeks and these should get moving! I'd like to move them on in three swaps, not all at once. Let me know if you;re interested in a bag trade. Thank 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.



  • 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, anyone who identifies as one from the LGBTQ2+ community. I am 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 also want to say you are a collage master … not everyone can put together bits and pieces in a creative manner.. those stickers and the packaging is much appreciated and will be used with gratitude.. thank you very much for all

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!
