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

True stories are the most interesting, I think, but 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 documents.

Favorite Crafts

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


  • unused postcards (please, no touristy ones)
  • if you are from USA; I love the postcards with one view and the state name in it (sent without envelope)
  • music themed postcards
  • colours and colourful things
  • rubber stamps
  • coffee
  • books
  • libraries
  • hand written letters
  • ATC´s

  • marzipan
  • rubber stamping, crafting and knitting magazines
  • decorated (packing) tape
  • small address labels (with my first name only)
  • Mr. Men (Little Miss Sunshine etc.)

I don´t like

  • skulls, bones, skeletons -themed things
  • scented paper or candles or anything
  • coconut
  • hard candies
  • grapefruit
  • coffee with artificial flavors
  • teacher´s stickers (saying "good job" etc.)

  • note cards

Favorite colours

  • yellow

Note Please

Please note that the mail from Finland takes normally 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.
