About Me

Hi there! I'm a translator but currently I do regular office work. My mothertongue is Finnish, but I also speak Swedish, some Arabic and a little German. I do translation work with English, but at the moment it doesn't support me.

I live with my husband and our super shy cat.

I apologise for my terrible handwriting, I will try to take the time to write clearly when I mail to you.

Here are some of my likes in no particular order:

art noveau, maple trees, buttons, autumn, traveling, hats, fantasy, owls, frogs, cats, purple, black, red, green, comics/graphic novels, 1950's, salt liquerice/salmiakki, stars, night, postcards, lace, languages, abandoned houses, ribbons, mushrooms, gothic things, roses, tulips, steampunk, spiders, soviet propaganda, vintage, and something compeletely different!

I'm pretty happy to accept everything I get and if I don't like it I just send it on to someone else. I don't drink tea and I absolutely loath Nescafé and other instant coffees (plus coffee gives me heartburn). If you want to send me something to drink, I do drink cocoa / hot chocolate :)

I usually rate the same day I get the package, unless I'm really sick or come home in the middle of a night and the package has waited on the desk all day, or maybe sometimes all weekend etc. I give hearts for things I like, things that are "extra special" to me. You won't automatically get a heart for sending me a million extras.

Favorite Music

Mostly I listen to Finnish rock and heavy metal. Lyrics are important to me, and I pay a lot of attention to them when listening to a new band. From foreign artists my favourites are Nick Cave, Rammstein, Edith Piaf, and occasionally Frank Sinatra.

The Finnish artists and bands that I like include Jarkko Martikainen, Herra Ylppö & Maj Karma, Ismo Alanko and many other great lyricists.

Favorite Books

Lately I've become a little lazy on books, I used to devour them when I was a teenager. I like fantasy novels, but also poetry and classics. I like to analyse what I read.

At the moment I'm reading through my husband's scifi-novels.

Favorite Movies

As with my books, I like my movies to give me something to think about. I like foreign films, that is to say films that are not necessarily block busters, but still good. My favourite films from my shelf include The Shining, La Môme, Amélie and The Little Shop of Horrors

Favorite Television

At the moment, definately Mad Men, Game of Thrones, and Project Runway.

I like British comedy, such as The Monty Python, Black Adder, Black Books, and Smack the Pony.

I also like to watch historical dramas, with adorable costumes and hair-do's.

Favorite Crafts

I like to knit and crochet the most, but I seldom have the inspiration to do anything, since, let's face it, you don't need five pairs of mittens or socks, and neither does your friends or family, ecspecially when most of them are cabable of knitting themselves. I do yarn bombing, so basicly all kinds of yarns are welcome, if it's something I don't like to use to do any "real" things (like mittens, socks, scarves), I use it in yarn bombs.

I like making ATC's but I usually have material only to make one per swap. In my paper crafts I like to push the cutesy things aside a bit. Mostly my ATC's are collages, but I can surprise you with a drawing, an oil pastel, or an aquarel if I can make myself concentrate :)

I would like to weave, but I don't have the loom here in Helsinki, and I can not spend enough time at my Mum's, where the loom does loom about...

As said, my handwriting is quite... interesting, since I write fast, and that's that. Doing things fast may be seen in other crafts as well, but I'm merely human, not a machine! I can't always cut or draw straight...

And the other stuff too, I am just glad the way from you to me was not one step longer, because it would have fallen out, which would have been a shame!! Yikes! The envelope was torn... But anyway, end good is all good, I am very happy with it all!

Comment: Kiitos kortista! Minäkin olen vähän varovainen mitä lähetän ulkomaille ettei vain kukaan mieltänsä pahoittaisi, mutta onneksi on näitä "törkeiden" korttien swappeja :D

Hei! Kiitos upeasta kirjeestä, jonka lähetit minulle SENG WTA #9 voittoni johdosta. Voi mitä ihanuuksia kirjeestäsi paljastuikaan! Lisäsin heti muutaman söpön pöllötarran kalenteriini ja sormeni syyhyävät askartelemaan jotain lähettämästäsi punaisesta "lenkkinauhasta". :)

Kiitos vielä kerran ja mukavaa päivänjatkoa!
