I'm

a 23-year-old theology student from Finland and I'm happy to swap with you (:

I'm a Christian girl and faith means lot to me. I'm very interested to talk, read and understand different Christian traditions, but also other lifestyles, religions, and ways to see the world. Things that are Christianity themed are very welcome to me :)

I love recycling and eco-things. I buy most my clothes from second hand shops and flea markets and love to make all kinds of things from recycled materials. Especially sewing is something I do a lot.

Some other things that make me happy are dancing, riding a bike, writing letters and poems, drinking tea, making cards and making food (especially veggie food and all the yummy cupcakes etc).

I love

animals (wild animals and dogs), earthy and bright colors (orange, rose, violet, grey, brown, green, blue, nearly everything), nature, retro things and prints, old-fashioned things and vintage, recycled, organic, fair trade and local products from different countries.

I would love to receive

recipes (especially American pancakes and falafels), beautiful pictures to put on the wall, letter sets, new ideas to my handicraft, pens that are good for writing letters and a black marker, decotapes, rubber stamps, yarn (even in small amounts), beautiful postcards, candles, textile handkerchiefs (I mean a handkerchief not made of paper but something like cotton), tea (especially black tea!), tote bags, retro fabrics, eco cosmetics, chocolate, thoughts about God and life, poems, quotes that are important to someone, books about crafting or Christian books, movies (I love nearly everything except horror), jewelry that's made of something natural like wood or seeds or that's happily colored, vintage things and anything beautiful.

I appreaciate hand made things and love most the swaps where people can use their crafting skills (:

I don't like...

I don't have many things that I absolutely don't like. I'm not very much into cartoon characters, beads or touristy postcards. And I don't like strong artificial scents or colors (in food, for example). Also horror themed things are something I don't like (skeletons, spiders etc.)

The most interesting thing in

Swap-bot is to get other people's favorite things that they recommend and see if I like them too. I like surprises and things that I didn't know I like. And I like anything that someone has made putting effort in it. I also enjoy reading other people's profiles and in that way to "meet" different people :)

Comment: KIITOS! Aivan ihana paketti! :) Tykkäsin tosi paljon! Laitoin Dumle-tikkarit kaappiin odottamaan Jessen ja Jamin mahdollista karkkipäivää :) Kun oikein kiukuttaa niin voi lepytellä tikkarilla :) Kiitos ihan hirrrrveesti! Pitipä kysymäni että mistä oot tuota ohkasta paperia mihin kirjotit,hankkinut? Onko se jtn ns.riisipaperia? Itekin haluisin hankkia jotain tuon tapaista.
Response: Jee, ihanaa että oli mieleinen paketti! (: Ohut paperi on jotain ikuisuuksien vanhaa kirjepaperia, jota sain äidiltä. Sellaista, joka on tosi kevyttä ja tarkoitettu Air mail-lähetyksiin. En tiedä yhtään myydäänkö sellaista enää nykyään...

Comment: Thanks for the fun earrings! I enjoyed doing this swap too, and will be doing more with these cards since it was fun thinking of different things to do. I really enjoy using recycled items for crafting. I also liked getting a swap from Finland and I love the gold stickers on the envelope!

Comment: This sounds like an interesting book. I love reading historical fiction novels. I have a copy of The Help as well, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I've been wanting to see the movie, but I want to read the book first. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to reading these at some point!
Response: Thanks for the rating and for hosting this swap :)

Comment: Thankyou for the lovely envies.. and for enclosing them in one of your handmade envies also. It was fun to get that with the postage stamp and the postmark. Your envies are well made and the one you used for mailing to me held up very well to going through the post. The envies you made for me were great...and I also can see why you could not resist using that pancake stack picture!! Plus you were kind enough to think of using a postcard for your swap note, so that I can add it to my collection. Thankyou very much !
Response: Thanks and happy to hear that the envie heldp up on it's way to you, I don't have sent anything in a self-made envie before :)

Thanks for covering for a deadbeat swapper :-) in the"profile package of used/recycled items" swap. I love the tote bag from dog food bags and also the one from coffee bags. I've seen such things, but have never made any. The yarn is also quite welcome.

Hi, glad you like the card! I had a great time in Australia; I attended a performance of John Stanier's "The Crucifixion" at the St. Paul's Cathedral in Melbourne CBD, watched a Catholic service on the night of Holy Saturday at St. Francis and took part in the 8:00 a.m. service at St Paul's on Easter Morning. Then, I had lunch with my friend and his merry family. How did your Easter festivities go?

Ginger on Apr 24, 2011:

Hey Milla! I just wanted to drop in and say Happy Easter! Praise God Christ is risen! And I put another postcard in the mail for you yesterday ;) God bless you!

jeremy15 on Apr 9, 2011:

Hi Milla, thank you for your reply letter! It was a wonderful read.

Hello there, thank you for writing me back for the prayer swap. Your note was so sweet and thoughtful. It really encouraged me. I know the Lord will continue to guide us and help us as we give our all to Him. Thanks again, take care, Missy
