About Me

I've been into snail mail for a couple of years now but I just registered to this site as I just turned 18. I live in Finland, and I'd love to share some of my country's goodies with people from all over the world. Some of my interests include books, knitting and other crafts, stamps, wooden jewellery, poetry and wild flowers/nature. I'm also very lgbtq+ positive and part of the community myself, and hope to be accepted in this community too.

Favorite Books

My favourite books are from two categories: mystery and children's fiction. I have listed some of my favourites here.

mystery:

  • Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley
  • The Scarred woman by Jussi Adler-Olsen

children's fiction:

  • Wonder by R.J. Palacio
  • The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren

Favorite Crafts

  • Knitted socks, sweaters, mittens
  • crocheting (mostly amigurumi animals, dolls, food items for my young relatives)
  • Paper crafts, scrap booking, collages
  • wooden jewelry, especially earring making

I love:

  • Everything book related
  • Washi tape
  • Dried flowers
  • Journaling cards
  • Everything sparkling
  • statationery, stickers etc.
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Stamped images, photos
  • Lace, threads
  • Vintage stuff
  • Pretty postcards
  • Poems!!
  • TEA
  • Wax seals
  • Zines

I'm not a fan of:

  • Close minded talk
  • Too much politics
  • Negative vibes

Fave colours:

  • Yellow
  • Pink
  • Light green, blue or turquoise
  • RAINBOWS

Mailing

Note that when shipping overseas, letters can sometimes take up to a month to arrive. Don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions. I'll resend if something has gotten lost in mail! I mark items as sent when I have dropped them to a mailbox, it gets emptied on weekday mornings so the "sent" date might not be same as the day it got postmarked

My taste in teas:

I'm happy to receive any kind of tea. Trying new flavours is always interesting so I love getting more "wild" ones too! I have a weak spot for beautifully packed tea. I love everything: black, green, white, yellow or rooibos, they're all heavenly to me. Just please don't send me detox/weight loss teas, those are a bit triggering (due to a past eating disorder) to receive. The only flavour I'm not that big of a fan of is peppermint so everything else is fine! My absolute favourites include vanilla + strawberry (black tea), chili + jasmine (green tea) and (lemon + raspberry) white tea.

Comment: Thank you! You did a great job decorating and your English was great, not weird at all, I promise! I love that you put them in cute little envelopes like that and believe it or not, I love the fact that some of the teas are in another language so I won’t be sure what I’m getting - surprises are good (and because I like all types of teas). ❤️
