About me and what I like

Hi!

I am a student of psychology and an avid reader. I like to read existentialist themes, classic literature and modern poetry. I love drawing, swimming, gardening, hiking and camping, going to exhibitions, concerts and plays, and I tend to lose time on video games. I listen to blues and alternative rock. I'm an atheist who respects all religions.

I dabble in charcoal, ink, watercolor and paper collage art. I love ATCs :) The effort and talent people put into these sparks joy in me. I tend to fill my space with artwork, so ATCs (and other formats) really cheer me up.

I also love

  • logic puzzles

  • tea and coffee

  • note cards

  • postcards which you filled with poetry or your art

  • cat toys

  • notepads and sticky notes

  • things for my bullet journal

  • canvas totes

  • small wallets and coin purses

  • hotel and other small soaps

  • charcoal, ink, watercolor and paper collage art supplies

  • paper lanterns

  • ATC cardstock

  • pictures from magazines about nature, travel, space, architecture and similar

  • short stories you think I might like

  • minimalist necklaces, bracelets and rings (nature or art themed)

  • sturdy decorated envelopes and folders

  • small ceramics like flower pots, little bowls, plates and trays, tea light holders, catchalls

  • pillowcases

  • place mats, coasters, napkins

  • little wreaths and garlands

  • moss and small terrariums

  • cookie cutters

I love flowers and leaves and can always find a spot for them. Actually, anything that brings nature into my apartment is welcome. Please, rather send something handmade or found in nature than store bought. I'd love to receive something that is uniquely yours or specific to the nature surrounding you.

I love the smell of honey, cedar and pines, bergamot, and citrus. For colors, I usually go for darker or dusty shades of green, purple and grey and I love floral anything!

Themes I like tend to have something to do with space, ocean, plants and animals, mountains, forests, hiking, moss, dragonflies, vintage botanical prints, vintage astronomy, just everything nature, motels, western, surrealist, abstract, mysterious creatures, vintage Voodoo, aristocracy, zen and zen gardens, ukiyo-e, history, vikings and Scandinavia, flamingos, Moomin, Little Prince, New Orleans, the aesthetics and atmosphere in shows like True Detective (season one), the same for the show The OA. I like the concepts of wabi sabi, hygge, mindfulness and self-care. I'm okay with macabre topics and am death positive (I love Caitlin Doughty's work).

I love nature photography. Would love to travel to Iceland one day. My dress sense is minimalist with toned down grunge details. I don't have pierced ears, but I do like minimalist jewelry.

If postage wasn't so expensive, I'd be doing subscription box like swaps. I love Buddy Box, The Box Of, Papergang, Graze, Bombs and Bubbles, Hygge Box, No More Taboo, My Garden Box, Basilbox, the Happiness Planner, the Artisan Box, Revival Kit,...

Recently I fell in love with swapping poetry on postcards and would love doing more of those.

I keep my stuff clean, but I felt it needed to be stated that I have four cats, which I adore :)

Dislikes

These I have no use for: make-up, ribbons and fibers, stickers, gel pens, jewelry craft supplies, coupons, bows, beads, feathers, rhinestones, coins, gems, clowns, dolls, dreamcatchers and suncatchers, matchboxes, shrines, lettersets, buttons, fabric, embossing powder, glitter, rub-ons, vanilla and coconut scents, toys, yarn, ad cards, pocket calendars, bank notes, phone cards, lace, magnets, felt, sewing patterns, dice, fans, snow globes, nail supplies, doilies, brads, Greetings from and Keep calm cards, junk journals, advertising pens, key chains...

I respect, but don't find much joy in these themes: fantasy, hunting, gore, religious items, new age, k-pop, baby stuff, Disney, country themed items, princess or kawaii, fairy, geek, nerd, nautical, sports, famous people, Amish, Coca Cola and brands in general, Pokemon, Harry Potter, LOTR, holiday themed anything, musicals, steampunk, rockabilly, pin up,...

Films and TV shows

12 Angry Men, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apocalypse Now, Baraka, Blade Runner, The Godfather, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Spirited Away, Unforgiven, The Wire, A Clockwork Orange, High Noon, Network, For a Few Dollars More, Taxi Driver, Alien, Das Boot, Rick and Morty, Fargo, Her, Barton Fink, Dog Day Afternoon, Rio Bravo, Stalker, The Trial, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Once Upon a Time in the West, Band of Brothers, Full Metal Jacket, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Fargo (2014), Interstellar, No Country for Old Men, The Deer Hunter, Arrival, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, The Big Lebowski, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Grave of the Fireflies, Miller's Crossing, Moon, Mr. Nobody, Oldboy, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, True Detective, Breaking Bad, Playtime (1967), Pulp Fiction, Stranger Things, Requiem for a Dream, The Shining, The External World (2010), Seven, Trainspotting, Aliens, American Beauty, Leon: The Professional

If you are sending to me

Please, don't feel discouraged to send something you made, even if you previously got negative feedback. If you love working in the medium and love what you made, I would be thrilled to receive it. You are not sending something to a gallery curator or at least I don't imagine myself one. I am looking for happy swapping which encourages creativity and creativity tends to come in all shapes and sizes, so, please, send some my way :D

Comment: Many thanks for the envelope. I look forward to reading more poetry. All the best!
Response: The PO worker said I can't send such a small envelope on its own, so I had to place it inside a bigger one I bought there :/ I'm glad you liked it nevertheless :) All the best to you, too!
