I´m a 29 year old mother and wife from Northern Finland, Europe. I have a BBA degree and currently work as an accountant. I also have a little boy born in June 2004 called Petja.
I don't mark swaps sent if I haven't done it! So if you don't receive my swap please contact me and I'll try to track it down when possible or send you another one to replace swaps lost in post office as I never ever let my partners down.
So please contact me if you haven't received a lettersized swap (such as ATC's) in two weeks or packages in 1 month and we'll work something out! Thanks :)
I try almost anything which can be made with hands, but my favorites are cardmaking, scrapbooking, ATC= artist trading cards, knitting and sewing. More off those in my blog http://piiat.vuodatus.net (Sorry, only in finnish, but I hope pictures tell more than thousand words)
PINK!!! It´s my favorite colours in all the shades.
Other favorite colours are turqoise blue, chocolate brown and combinations of white and red.
Vintage! Everything from 60's or older and I love it!!!
Designers like Laura Ashley, Cath Kidston and Tone Finnager.
Dr Pepper soda
Hearts and stars!!!!
Christmas!!! Waiting for next one allready!!!
country style and shabby chic
stripes and polkadots, specially red and white or in pastels
My husband (been together for 15 years and still madly in love)
And most of all my 5,5 year old son! He is the true love of my life (sorry honey! Hih!)
Everything old and vintage for an example vintage post cards. My vintage card collection is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/piiata (there is also some ATC's I have made)
Craft suplies, fabrics and yarn (you can never have too much of them! Hih!)
Angels and almost everything with angels on them
ATC's (Themes I love most: Pink, Turqoise, Pin-up, Vintage, Paris, Fairies and Owls)
Sand, rocks and sea shells from places I´ve been on a vacation.
Pictures and other related stuff of classic movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Charles Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn, Vivien Leigh etc
something I collect
some craft and handywork suplies: scrapbook papers, stickers, rub-ons = transfers, brads, eyelets, buttons, ribbons, yarns, fabrics...etc.
for my collage projects: old newspaper pages or book pages and also newer ones (i can then make them look older), used stamps, tickets etc.
Vintage style collage sheets/pictures
Cool Aid for my yarn coloring projects (can´t get it from here)
Craft magazines (Papercraft, Cardmaking, Scrapbooking, Sewing, Stuffies etc), used/seconhand will be fine too! I don't mind at all and will be extra happy if I get to "recycle" by swapping :)
HÄNGLAR & STÄNGLAR stamps (new or used)! I would die to get some of them! LOL
and most of all new friends!!!!
3d-images, I hate to cut them out of the paper :(
Anything modern... I´m an old spirit you know ;)
Jewelry with metal parts (other than silver or gold) against my skin... I'm allergic to several metals (nickel, copper etc.) if they are against my skin... Keychains, beaded jewelry and anything that I can wear on my clothes will be fine :)
Anything dark and moody...
This is for those swaps I sign up for my boy (kids themed swaps or candy swaps etc.):
So my son loves:
1.)Cartoons like Little Einsteins, Noddy, Postman Pat, Tom The Tractor, Bob the Builder, TMNT and Cars. And everything with those themes!!! (No DVD's though if it's not European regional code and dubbed/spoken in finnish as he doesn't understand english yet!)
2.) Candy and chocolate!!! No hard candy or liqourice or sour candy though :(
3.) Those little metallic cars... he plays hours with them everyday on his "traffic carpet"!!! LOL
4.) Craft and coloring books :)
5.) Cookies and crackers! Both sweet & salty ones :)
6.) And everything else that little boys enjoy .... :)
