**** UPDATE 10/20/2022 DUE TO A FAMILY EMERGENCY MY SWAPS THAT I HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP TO (and the partners have already been assigned) WILL BE LATE. I HAVE CONTACTED MY PARTNERS **************************************************
I can't emphasize this enough: PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY FLASHING OBJECTS ON MY WALL, THEY MAY CAUSE ME SEIZURES
A big, friendly grin from the capital of Finland! I have also lived in the USA (Missouri), England and India.
Pet household - I try my best to prevent an occasional cat hair traveling with my swaps, but those seem to have a life of their own so sometimes they just decide to travel and I apologize for that.
My obsession #1 is traveling. 43 countries so far :) My obsession #2 is fall (autumn), I love anything fall related :) My favorite holiday is Halloween, especially anything pumpkin related :) Other than that, I love anything nature-related: hiking, camping, picking berries and mushroom, fishing...
My favorite place in the whole world is New York, I travel there a few times a year. Boston is a close second :)
My favorite colors are bright yellow, mustard, lime, grass green, red, terra, orange, brown, teal, turquoise, rainbow (yeah, I know rainbow is not a color, but I love rainbows :)
I was flaked on in a private swap by @hmscm - so, I didn't get a host star :(
I prefer things I can USE. I don't want to collect anything.

PLEASE, DO NOT POST ANY FLASHING OBJECTS ON MY PROFILE WALL!!!
...doesn't go anywhere during the weekends. If I mark my swaps sent on a Saturday or a Sunday, or after 5 p.m. on a Friday, I have mailed them but the stamps aren't franked/cancelled and the mail isn't sent forward from the post office until the following Monday. This, at it's most unfortunate, may cause a false impression that I haven't sent my swaps in time :-( However, I try to drop everything to the post office during the week days. Also, there are some bank holidays in Finland, and on bank holidays the mail doesn't travel either.
****NOTE: Finland uses the DD.MM.YYYY date format, so a postal stamp marked 12.9. means it was sent on September 12th****
I am a mad recycler, so I will reuse package material and use cardboard boxes which originally held something else often, unless the swap requires something fancy or specific. I hope this is not a problem :)
...please send me a private message before getting mad. The reason is not that I have not sent my swap, the reason must be problems in the mail chain.
