About Me

Hi there! I am a creative female living in Finland. My interests include mail art, languages, collecting postcards, reading, dancing and yoga. I am a fan of old books' shops, museum shops, flea markets and thrift stores. I enjoy learning about history and would love to have a time machine in order to visit various places in different eras.

I always read profiles. I don't sign up for many swaps at the same time, because I want to make sure that I have enough time to do my part in swaps properly and not in a hurry. Quality over quantity.

Favorite Music

I used to take salsa (dance) classes for years, which introduced me to some wonderful artists/groups like Los Van Van, David Calzado y su Charanga Habanera, Manolito y su Trabuco, Haila and Gloria Estefan. Apart from Afro-Cuban rhythms, I enjoy listening to various Finnish artists. Some other favourites include Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, Robbie Williams, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Norah Jones, Whitney Houston, Eagles, Eros Ramazzotti...

Things I Like

I love to see a personal note included with swaps! I also love to see foreign stamps on the mail I receive, so it would be great if you could use different stamps. If you send me a postcard, write down the date on the PC, please.

I love almost anything vintage and post related (postboxes, stamps, airmail stickers!!...). Old&new postcards, old photographs, old laces and trims, old/new maps, old door keys, old typewriters, vintage ephemera, mail art supplies, address labels, rubber stamps, stationery, patterned papers, poetry, crocheted flowers, themes with matryoshka dolls/lighthouses/nature/trees/owls/ strawberries/apples/cherries/apple&cherry blossoms.

Below you can see some examples of postcards I would love to receive, but I like any kinds of postcards, really. It would be great to receive postcards full of handwritten text (a story related to the image on the other side, or why you chose to send the particular postcard...I love details). Anyway, some themes I like:

Anything related to books or reading

Art Nouveau, Victorian

Historical/vintage images and black&white

Mailboxes and other things related to post

maps

Unusual postcards, also ad cards

Favorite Crafts

I love papercrafts - making envelopes/mail art, rubberstamping, origami. It's fun to use many&varied postage stamps on envelopes. I am always buying new stamps :) .

Thank you so very much for finding and sending me a spoon. I was so excited when I saw the package in the mail. I love the spoon it's already hanging up with the others in my collection. the candy bar is awesome. I am sharing with my husband he really likes it too. Thanks for doing the private swap with me.
