Favorite Music

Music has a great part in my life, both listening and playing. I like many kinds music, mostly instrumental. I am interested in hearing what you play, or to know new music.

Favorite Books

I read nearly anything that is written nicely and clearly. Not a big fan of horror books any more, though.

I am always looking for new authors whose books to read.

I normally don´t like novels where the story jumps back and forward in the time as I have really hard time following it then :D.

Favorite Movies

Here again I like movies based on real life, true stories, but also enjoy comedies.

Favorite Television

I only watch television while doing something else, so it must be easy watching or very interesting documentaries.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, rubber stamping, card making, sewing and some crocheting and lino cutting.


  • unused postcards (please, no touristy ones), especially I like music themed and illustrated postcards
  • colours and colourful things
  • rubber stamps
  • coffee
  • books
  • libraries
  • hand written letters
  • ATC´s
  • winter

  • Mr. Men (Little Miss Sunshine etc.)
  • stickers shaped as postage stamp
  • mail related items
  • sheet music
  • plastic envelopes with popper closing (letter size, A5 and smaller)

I don´t like

  • dark chocolate
  • cherries in chocolate
  • cookies
  • bubble gum without xylitol
  • note cards
  • old postcards or vintage kind "fake" vintage, that has machine made brownish back
  • die cuts, most of them

Note Please

Please note that the mail from Finland takes normally around one week, but sometimes up to two or even four weeks to travel internationally.

I click the "sent" button when I already sent my swap and don't have it in my hands anymore. So the date does not always match (and is often one day later than the actual sending date).

I am easily pleased :) I don't expect the swaps be directly from my likes only as I am interested in seeing what others like to do and what colours they use and how, a s o.
