About Me

[ UPDATE 7th April 2024. I fell on my way to work yesterday as there was fresh snow on ice - twice. 1st one was nothing, but 2ed was nothing but. I went to ER and ended up spending nearly 9 hours there. They made my cast twice. I just hope it do the trick and I do not need surgery - will know it within 10 days or so. I will have the cast for 5 weeks, so at least 5 weeks on sick leave as my work is very physical. I hope I can get back to it, but if I won't then I will figure out something else, not my biggest worry now. I never have broken any bones before, and having a cast is new to me. Luckily, it is my left hand, and I'm right-handed. I will do some swaps here and there since I know mail keeps my spirits up. ]

Hey there.

I have loved snail mail since I was a little girl (37 years old now). My mother wanted me have some fairly cheap hobby so we searched me penpals when I was around 7 years old and barely was able to write anything. I never stopped, tho I had some years I had just one penpal to write with.

I am also swapping decos, FBs, slams, bags and such. I used to swap them in my teens and then took a loooong break.

I´m laid-back penpal, so outside organised swaps, it might take me some time to reply - I see snail mail as an awesome and dear hobby, not something you need to get done with or perform fast.

Beside letters and snail mail, I love my cats, knitting, watching Netflix & Twitch, quiet lifestyle, and videogames. Animals in general mean a lot to me; we used to have dogs, mice, rats, fish, hamsters during my childhood. I´m just too lazy to have a dog on my own, haha!

My favorite colors are black, and green.

I´m not native English speaker, so I make mistakes. A lot. Please do not mind too much of that.

I have lived with my 78 years old mother since June 2023 due her health issues. I often also show her postcards and such I send/receive. She always says how adorable things there is these days when it comes to penpalling world :)

I send mail out by Air Mail and Economy - most my private swaps I sent by Economy these days, some organised ones as well. Please feel free to contact me if you have any problems; I believe solving them by communicating. I will re-send, of course.

I´m introverted geek. A loner, but I do feel loneliness sometimes. For me, snail mail and books are ways to feel less alone in the world. It is slightly different now since I do not live alone anymore as I did before for almost 20 years.

Here is some inspiration for the swaps/postcards (not demands, just ideas - I´m far from picky and I´m very easy to please!)

  • Cats, dragonflies
  • Foxes
  • Coffee, books
  • Magical creatures (dragons, fairies)
  • Quotes and sayings
  • Black and white
  • Tibetan spaniels (dogs)
  • Sunflowers
  • Peace/anti-war
  • Steampunk
  • Blue Cats by Rina Zenyuk
  • Space
  • Spooky Cute
  • Old Buildings
  • Hello Kitty/Sanrio
  • Diddl
  • Pusheen
  • Dreamcatchers
  • Sunflowers
  • Owls

" In a world where you can be anything, be kind. "

Favorite Books

Lord of the Rings by Tolkien, Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, Mercy Thompson novels by Patricia Briggs, Neil Gaiman, Dark Hunter novels by Sherrilyn Kenyon and so on. Sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal romance mostly.

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica ("new" one; never seen the other other), Arcana, Supernatural, Stranger things, After Life, Buffy & Angel, Torchwood.

Favorite Music

Nightwish, Gaming OSTs (Hellsinger, Mass Effect, Dragon Age etc), Battle Beast, Haloo Helsinki, Sonata Arctica. Most of my favorites are from my teenage years, it seems...

Favorite Crafts

Decos, knitting, slams, Fbs, label bags, sewing, cardmaking.

I have a fear that I´m not creative or talented enough, tho. That is one reason why getting back to swapping was a bit scary as I used to stress it too much and lost the enjoyment in it.

Now I´m older and worry slightly less about such things.

Dislikes

I do not really have many dislikes, really. Not when it comes to receiving mail at least. So, I could say I dislike making dislike lists as I rather focus to things I really, really like. I´m more "and" than "or" person as well.

Otherwise things I dislike are:

  • "Animals in funny clothings"-pictures on cards/stationery (real ones; illustrated are ok tho - this is pretty much only swapping related dislike of mine, and kinda odd one as well)
  • Violence (in games etc. I´m fine with it, tho)
  • Pushing religious thoughts to others (I´m fine by religious otherwise and telling about personal beliefs as well)
  • Rudeness (we have so little time on Earth anyway)
  • Judging people by their work or status etc
  • Animal cruelty
  • True crime (not all, tho)
  • Hate (I can understand traumas, but... you know what I mean)

Thank you for sending me bags! =) I worked it out with my partner and she sent me something comparable, so I rated fairly. I appreciate you going above and beyond to ensure I received some bags!
