About Me

UPDATE: I am not sending or receiving mail at this time due to a bad living situation. I have no way to send or receive mail. Please do not send a swap to me if you owe me one... please message me! If I owe you a swap please be patient I will get it to you as soon as I possibly can. I hope everyone understands! Please do message me!

Hello! My name is Emi! I am turning 34 this year. I'm hoping to make some good friends who share some of the same interests as me. I haven't been on here in a while but I would like to get back into doing swaps again!

My main interests right now are Bible study, Bible journaling, bullet journaling, kawaii journaling, eating healthy, spending time in the outdoors, gardening, reading lots of books, sewing, crafting, sending snail mail, snuggling with my cats, and starting my online business. I also love to play board games, video games, and table top RPG games. I’m getting into living history more these days and would love to do it more often.

I am very interested in Japanese culture and enjoy a lot of things from Japan. Especially the cute journaling supplies and stationery! My husband and I are hoping to visit Japan someday! I hope to learn Japanese fluently someday.

Right now we have dreams of having our own homestead so we are working towards that goal! I spend hours on YouTube watching videos related to homesteading and skills I can utilize once we have our own place! Currently I am very interested in learning how to can food! Someday I hope to own alpacas because I love them soooo much!

As far as penpals go, I'm interested in doing many different types of swaps since I'm interested in so many different things. I'm open to letter writing, snail mail, craft swaps, postcards, etc. I can do long term or one time swaps. I am on the search for a few long term pen pals from other countries. I have never had a long term pen pal. I consider myself a Believer in Yeshua as Messiah (Jesus Christ) and so I would love some penpals that share the same faith as me, but I don't mind at all having penpals who are of a different faith. :)


Bible study, crafting, baking, upcycling, reading, volunteering, thrift shopping, DIY projects, helping others, spending time with family and friends, playing and snuggling with my cats, camping, hiking, collecting natural elements for crafts, video games, watching tv shows, bonfires, road trips, gardening, shopping at the farmers market, learning about different cultures, being out in nature, bento boxes, living history, board games, D&D, going to museums, model trains, traveling, sewing, cosplay, painting, drawing.

Favorites & Dislikes

TEA SWAPS: I love almost every flavour of tea... except for anything with licorice! So if you are ever doing a tea swap with me, just know I do not like the licorice flavour. Anything else is fair game! ^_^

My favorite foods are pizza, nachos, tacos, salad, veggies, quinoa, soup, ramen, curry, Mac n cheese, strawberries, bananas, oatmeal.

DISLIKES: I'm not a fan of dark styles, unless it's nature themed. Also dislike monochrome, or anything without loads of color. I hate anything black licorice flavored. I don't like mean people or internet trolls. I don't like prejudiced or judgmental people!

Hello, Emi!

Here in Finland the first spring flowers are blooming.

The weather has been great and I'm enjoying rides with our new family bike that can carry an adult + 1-3 kids!

The Living History -hobby sounds super interesting! I wish I could try it some day!

I love to read too. If you have some recommendations for good christian fiction, I'd love to hear :)

I hope you will achieve your dream of an own homestead. Have a strawberry sweet day!

This was for Deco Profile Kawaii Pusheen -swap.
