About Me

Hiya! My name's Itti, I'm from the UK, I live in Edinburgh. My hobbies include drawing, painting, photography, bouldering, puzzles, board games, walking by the river and making lists. My boyfriend is Portuguese and lives with me most of the time, but still partly lives in Portugal. I also keep two leopard geckos.

🦎 Please check out my reptile/amphibian group on Swap-bot if that's something you're interested in too :) 🦎

Other things I like

A short list to give you inspiration

  • I like bright colours (think bright rainbow or deep jewel tones). I also like blacks and greys. I am not keen on pastels or washed out colours. I really don't like pink.
  • I keep leopard geckos and I like seeing things with any kind of gecko on
  • I like trees, plants and nature. I like things made of wood and things with leaves on.
  • Anything 'zen' or 'soothing' or 'hygge'. I need more calm in my life :)

Tea

The idea of getting back into tea swaps is partly what made me come back to Swapbot, so here's a bit about my tastes:

  • I like black tea and white tea best. Black tea flavoured with a fruit is one of my favourite things - Bigelow and Twinings both do some great options. I like rose and floral flavours as well.
  • I also just discovered the Dilmah exceptional range through swapping. The "rose with French vanilla" is lovely, would love some more of that if you've got any to hand!
  • I don't mind green and fruit teas as well but I don't drink them so often so I have a bit of a backlog, so that's why I'd prefer white or black tea.
  • If you do send me fruit tea, I like "orange/yellow" flavours (orange, mango, peach, lemon) more than "red/purple" ones. I don't like raspberry or cranberry much in fruit tea ("black tea with raspberry" is nice though!), but I do like strawberry. There are lots of others that I like too though and I would love to try new ones so a bunch of new flavours to try is very welcome! Oh yes, and if it's a bigger swap I don't mind getting a couple of the same flavour - then I can try one and keep one for later!
  • The only 'pure' black teas I can think of that I don't like are Pu-er and Lapsang souchong as they both have a very strong smoky flavour.
  • No cinnamon, cherry, banana, fennel, aniseed, ginger or liquorice please.

Arts and Crafts

A lot of what I swap here on Swap-bot is ATCs, mail art and Zentangles. I like creating a miniature artwork and sending it off in the post. I always try to do my best to create something that will bring joy to both me and my partner.

I've created an instagram account to share my art and swaps. I'll post the link here when there's a bit more content - you are welcome to message me to ask for it before that, I'll happily follow back.

Other things I swap include zines and postcards - both handmade and the shop-bought kind.

Dislikes

I like most things really so if there's something you personally think is really awesome or would love to get yourself, feel free to surprise me!

However, there are just a few things I can think of that I wouldn't like to get:

  • I am not Christian so please don't send me anything religious. Secular or non-denominational Christmas cards are fine, it's not such a religious holiday as it is in the US & a lot of people including me celebrate it secularly.
  • I don't like coffee; cherry and licorice flavours make me feel ill.
  • Please don't send me postcards as a profile surprise unless the postcards specifically fit my profile. Especially don't send me blank tourist postcards from somewhere I don't live - I would never use them.

Swapping stuff

I have been flaked a number of times (some angeled, some not) and angeled a bunch of times as well. However, I recently removed this info to clean up my profile a bit and because it was mostly quite old (from before my 7-year swap-bot break).

Comment: Itti, I love the very colorful postcard you sent to me! The pink background is a perfect complement to the blue in the bowl. And with the blueberries, raspberries, and dragonfruit(?), it makes a beautiful card! The sparkly stickers by the your message were a bonus, because I love sparkles! I am staying home (crafting and working in the back yard) and staying safe; you, please, do the same! Thank you for a wonderful swap!

Comment: I love this banana PC. Thank you for it and your nice note. We have been self-isolating for four weeks now. My wife has a partially paralyzed diaphragm and so getting pneumonia would be really bad for her. We do walk and go for an occasional drive. Fortunately, our house is big enough that we can each have alone-time.

Comment: This is definitely a super cute card :). I hope you can find a landlord one day who will embrace the companionship of kitties. Where I live, landlords aren’t allowed to tell you that you can’t have any.. they can try and lots do post “no pets” on listings, but the Landlord Tenant ACT states that they cannot refuse, as your animals are considered to be your family, in a sense. I’ve asked a lawyer for clarification way back when I was dealing with a landlord who was overstepping years back. Thanks for your postcard :).
Response: Huh, didn't know that. Thanks!

Comment: Thank you so much for sharing your list with me! Dodie has such a beautiful voice and I really like Kacey Musgraves too! Maria Mena is my new absolute favourite though, she's got such a sweet and warm sound! Thank you also for the extra songs you sent for me. REM have been firm favourites of mine for a very long time and I think Mountain Goats will be new regular plays for me. I really enjoyed this, thanks again! <3
Response: You're very welcome! Thanks for your kind and thoughtful words, and for the heart.

Hey girl! I just popped the CPG Snowflake ATC in the mailbox. I’m curious how long it will take to get to you all the way from the USA. Happy New Year🎉

Hi, I haven't received the tea advent calendar swaps from you yet. There's been a long strike in finnish postal service, so no letters have been delivered in the last few weeks. The strike finally ended last Tuesday, so I'm hoping to receive your letter in the near future. I will rate as soon as I get it :)

after searching for a couple hours, I could not find a photo that would copy to here, so here's some Lizards eating food. hope it'll still work
