I'm Kupla =Bubble, a 30-something mother of two boys. We are from Ylojarvi, Finland. Kupla is the name of our cat, who is a new addition to the family. Kupla was abandoned by his previous owner and had been looking for a new home for 6 months before he came to us a week ago.
I write really slowly since I'm really critical of what I write so I rather read other people's texts. I read a lot of books and mostly in English but sometimes in Swedish or German too and of course in Finnish.
I often shop at fleamarkets and buy clothes that I plan to refashion someday. It takes awhile since I'm not good at sewing but I like it a lot and hope to get better! I also enjoy photographing, knitting, crochet, making cards (for birthdays and such, never done any atc's, for example), cooking and baking. I also like different countries and cultures and dream of travelling to faraway places such as Australia and New Zealand one day :)
