My Etsy Wishlist
To swap coordinators!!: I have swaps where the mail flight routes from Finland to the recipient's country is still unavailable because of covid19, so I'm forced to wait. The post office updates a list of available countries frequently, and I check it daily, but so far New Zealand and Australia remain closed off. The post office refuses to take any letters to the unavailable countries, I've tried, so there's nothing I can do until it opens. I've let both the swap coordinator and my partner know, but I know it looks suspicious to have unsent swaps.
Emilia here, 26 years old.
I live in Jyväskylä, Finland, with my small cat Mana, whose hobby is to sleep on my neck forgetting she's no longer a tiny kitten, and to walk over everything I put on the table. She's really cute and stubborn and I love her. I'm really into art, books, and video games. I also like folktales/traditions/outfits a lot.
While I love learning languages, I have a bad memory, and so I can only fluently speak Finnish and English right now. I have studied Swedish and German, so you can write simple things in those languages to me as well! I read both better than I speak them though, so don't expect skillful fluent answers, haha. I'm also trying to self-learn a bit of Korean since I got my hands on the Talk To Me In Korean books! It's still in very early progress though, hahah.
I'll happily resend things if asked! The mail in Finland is slow (currently mail is delivered three days a week), so please contact me before rating if you don't receive your mail for some time.
My roommate is also a swapper so if you get the same address from both of us, that's not an error :D My Etsy wishlist is linked at the top of the page, so you can get some inspiration from there for what sort of things I like!
I listen to a lot of music from many genres. The only thing I don't really like that much is rap and really slow country songs. Otherwise I'm pretty good with all music. But my favorites are folk, pop/rock, indie, and soundtracks/musicals.
Example bands I REALLY like:
CoCo and the Butterfields • Florence + the Machine • Samuli Putro • Poets of the Fall • Celtic Woman • Fall Out Boy • NAVIBAND • American Authors • Värttinä • Panic! At the Disco • Ninja Sex Party • Hozier • Royal Republic
Generally I don't give a shit about "classic must read's", and just go with what I like. I'm open to many genres if it's suggested to me, but usually I like to mostly read fantasy, such as:
Harry Potter • Lord of the Rings • Legend of Drizzt • The Dark Tower • Discworld • Shades of Magic
Outside of fantasy I like for example Jane Austen, books about old folk traditions and mythical creatures, lesbian romances, and books about cultures, myths and events around the world. Less so about war, battles don't interest me that much.
If it's a woman written book with a female lead that isn't all about loving some random guy she just met and who's so m y s t e r i o u s, it's got a pretty good chance to be good with me. Add magic themes, drama and found family, and you're extremely good. Avoid love triangles, those are exhausting.
I'm also really into comics, for example
Sandman • Saga • Dragon age comics (and books!) • Moomins • One-book publishments from solo artists • Donald Duck etc.
I enjoy anything I can get really hands-on with, so pockets of all kinds are always appreciated, and fun surfaces that i can run my fingers on to feel it. I try to recycle parts of the decorations I receive in crafts I make myself, if I can. I like stickers, colorful and cute, naturalistic or fashionistic pop-culture stickers, for example. I adore postcards with painted art on them.
I really like natural color shades, but overall I'm a fan of all colors, as long as there's a lot of it! I adore paintings made into postcards. I'm especially a fan of Helene Schjerfbeck, Martta Wendelin, and Gustav Klimt's art.
I've recently gotten into ATC's, and found that I love making them! I make a mix of watercolor and paper collabs, and I am happy to receive any kind of cards myself! Fantasy themes and bright autumny colors are my favorites, if you're lacking ideas on which card to send!
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I adore animation and musicals! Anything with a good captivating story outside of just romance is a sure way to catch my attention, and strong song&dance sequences are the best! (think Broadway type music.)
