I lost any interest to live, and with that I was unable to fulfill the swaps I was in. I am very sorry for anyone, that has had negative feelings because of that. I am now recovering and working on the swaps. I will make and send them all, but it will take time, especially since currently I can not craft. I hope that I can make up what I destroyed. I see, that as well some of older swaps have not arrived. I did send all swaps that were marked sent, but of course I will now re-send all unreceived as soon as I can.
Profile is still on progress. Wait, until I figure out what I (am) like ;) It is quite long, and will not get shorter, so look for the points you need ;) I try to point out important things in short. Wish-lists in the end.
I love Halloween, send me all the goodies you have as left overs :D
If you leave me a comment on the side, please do NOT add a moving picture to your message. Thank you.
If you know, in which group Harry Potter -themed swaps are held, let me know :)
I am happy to pass further FBÂ´s and the other little things that are ment to travel the world (not tooys or other hard small items, but paperwork).
(This comes bit early, but no christmas-things please. I will most likely join some christmas-swaps. In case you read this, and I did not make it to message you already, please send the card to my mother(she pities every year how few cards she gets and I would like her to receive mine), it will get rated, or rather send me a card from my wishlist, if you would be so kind)
Hello. I am 23-y-o woman living in Germany. I was born in Finland, but moved here two-and-half-a-year ago. My fist child was born here in february 2012. Now I am staying at home, and plan to never work again. If I get unlucky, IÂ´ll return to be a chef. But IÂ´d rather move out of the town and produce everything I use by myself, divided from the society.
I donÂ´t feel that being mommy defines me. I still wear corsets and laugh at politically uncorrect jokes. One thing it does; my brain feels blurry. If you like your intelligence, donÂ´t ever give birth. Ok, it affect differently on everyone, and wears of with time. And you maybe get better memory in return. I donÂ´t either feel much like a woman. The expectations world has when they see you as woman... I just donÂ´t fit in. Sometimes, sometimes I am very much woman. But I think like men usually are said to think. I donÂ´t scream when I see a spider. I think the boxes where women and men should fit should be burned, and we all should be allowed to be as we want to, no matter what we have between our legs.
I like to craft. Sometimes I draw. Mostly I make small things, like cards. I like to come up with small ideas to make my home and life better, easier and prettier. I love to create something new out of something old. Often people wonder, how did I see something, when I keep picking usable things when I walk outside. It comes from my father: we are both treasure-hunters. We collect all the "rubbish" people think can not be reused. It can, and it does not look like trash in the end, but like treasure. I hate throwing things away (hmm, that is why my place is so full of stuff;), and I rather try not to buy new things. I also sew, if that fits here. I do lotÂ´s of clothes to myself, because I donÂ´t find what I want from stores. Zines are fun. I am still searching for my style. I like to try out different things.
I love pirates.
Black is beautiful, orange too. Silver.
Old fashioned farm living (if you live like that, please tell me about it)
Something, that makes one feel silence, calmness, tranqulity, something still and beautiful in its very own way (not nature, though)
Kawaii (Yes, I love at the same time cutecutecute themes and very dark stuff. Can you combine this? Would be great.)
I like hot chocolate. Any taste, or just plain. Or choco capucchino.
There are few type of sweets I like to receive. (Rest not, because we are cutting it down.) Dairy Milk -chocolate and Jelly Beans. And licorice and licorice flavoured things.
Second hand is better than first hand. I will not ate you down even if the swap stated "only new items", as long as the things are in good usable condition.
I try to write. I write everything, from poems to shopping-lists to novel-beginnings to opinions to complains about things I have bought. If I just get the inspiration. Yeah, one should not wait for that, if wantÂ´s to get pupliched. But I am not in hurry, lotÂ´s of years ahead of me to get The Big Inspiration.
I love to dress up. I like to look as if I was from a story. Lolita from Japan is one of my favorites, but I do not follow it strictly, just take what I like and add to something else. I love old times. Top-hats, cloves, underskirts, corsets...
Of course these do not apply in case the swap-rules ask you to use them
Dislikes: dogs, horses, gold-color
No souveniers please
No make-up, creams, or any other things full of chemicals. I am what they call natural beauty (you know, like elks).
I donÂ´t much use bookmarks, magnets or address books
I donÂ´t drink much tee (but my partner does), and I drink no coffee
I donÂ´t like random stuffed animals and things.
Less plastic is better. Use it in your crafting, send me a item made of it, that is fine. But if you can avoid it, please do. DonÂ´t get me cheap plastic items just to fill out the box. I like other materials more.
I boycot Nestle, so please have a look, that the food you are sending to me is not made by nestle.
Since so may of you are from USA, and since it seems, that religion plays there often a different role, I feel like writing a note about my relation to religion. I respect you all, and I allow you to believe in what ever you want to. I have many believes you would not share, and therefore, who am I to say. Personally I do not believe in any God. Therefore I wish, that when we exchange things, you do not bring out your believes. I try to do this too. LetÂ´s not chat about religion, I believe it will just make us both angry or sad. DonÂ´t quote bible for me, please.
Ephemera for me too! :D (I finally found out what that funny word means;)
For every extra ATC I receive, I will send one further. It is my hope, that this would spread and the trading would return to ATCs. I tend to send extra ATCs when ever one I have seems to fit better to someone else.
deco/washi tapes, canÂ´t find them here :(
Ex Libris, The library of, This belongs to etc. -stickers and pieces (I will not rate you down when you send some even if the swap-rules are forbidding these) and stickers with text
game pieces (puzzle-pieces, single playing cards, game-money... anything)
Anything that glows in the dark
Paper for watercolor paintings. Just one of two sheets will be fine, size at least ATC
I would like to get ten/twenty "par air mail" -stickers from your country. I know there is a swap about this, but I donÂ´t want to pay the extra postage. If I notice, that you are in such swap, and I am sending you an envelope anyway, IÂ´ll add some.
I need various white yarn-strings (pardon my english, and it does not need to be real yearn, any string you can croket with). Can you spear me piece, about as long you are?
I love to get postcards that mach to my wish-list Maybe you have received cards, you donÂ´t like, but think I would like? Put them into the envelope, I like to get used cards too. . I love stickers
I use postage stamps in my art.
You have a punchie or two? Punch me couple of things with it. Any color, any shape, they will get used.
I like to use book-pages on my craft. New kind of pages always welcomed. If you have book you use, wrap the ATC I am getting to a page for safety ;)
I want to thank everyone who sent me Googly eyes. Now I have several sizes and looks, and can finally join all these Googly-swaps and use them everywhere.
These are some of my favourite things, any medium
Harry Potter (anything from that serie, I love it - this I prefer over everything - the older the better, books even more loved than movies)
Witches or wizards, mythical animals, fairies, vampires, owls and bats, anything magical or mystical
Star Trek, or space-related non-fictional
Anne Taintor especially mother/child related, but all are very welcome (also those who copy her style (like half moon bay) are welcome, which means retro-pictures whit some clever words on it. also, if you want to make your own versions, I am happy to receive a hand-made one following the idea;)
