Bookbinder, painter, traveler, recycler. Most often dreams of water in unusual places. Tea-time, fixing things, learning, growing vegetables, being an idle fellow.
I like all things earthy and organic, and I dream of train travels across the Europe, worm-fishing at the summer cottage, hiking and camping trips, fell climbing, visiting unlikely places and experiencing new things, knitting woollen tweed pullovers, walking in the frosty fields in early November, learning carpentry, going to cinema alone, writing long letters, reading books and burning incense in the evenings.
The Hour, Top of the Lake, Downton Abbey, In Treatment, Heartbeat, Boardwalk Empire, Broadchurch, This is England, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, documentaries. All kinds of films

I always prefer handmade and organic/ethical products, I love things that have some soul and integrity. I like practical items more than items that are merely decorative - unless they're your original art or curious vintage/antique, which I do love. Recycled and found objects are always interesting, and I'd be more than happy to receive ephemera and trinkets from your "personal archives" too. Everything doesn't have to be store bought, so you don't have to worry about that. I make mixed media pieces in which I can use all sorts of curious materials.
I don't necessarily like plastic dollar store items... Except really weird stickers, such as glittery aircrafts. Eh!
No cutesy, girly, cartoon, Disney things for me
I don't wear makeup
Touristy postcards, unless it's a touristy postcard swap!
Really strong, artificial, soapy scents are not my thing. I prefer essential oils etc.
Rooibos tea, hibiscus
I always try my best to send interesting packages even if it means I have to spend a couple of dollars (or euros) more in the post office. I hope you'd do the same for me in a craft / item swap.
I'm around size 34 (XS/S) and of lanky build. My height is 164cm and my shoe size is EU 38.
My favourite colours are natural, earthy tones; Browns, muted blues, rust, maroon, grayish purple, amber, mustard, moss green, bronze, black, natural white and all kinds of grays. Some of my house colours:
Some favourite artists: Andrew Wyeth, Hugo Simberg, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Harry Clarke, J.C. Leyendecker, Romaine Brooks, Aleksei Savrasov, Mikhail Vrubel, Lucjan.
Other favourite things: Steam trains, heavy horses, old engines, parachute boots, punk gigs, psychedelic or traditional doom metal, natural and plant dyeing, ink drawings, mushroom hunting, frosty days of the late autumn. My favourite film is Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky. I love loose leaf teas. I think gender binary is rubbish. I don't follow any organised religion in particular.
I don't give hearts based on the amount of "extras" you put in a swap; I think it sort of promotes a culture of bribing. I give hearts for packages that look like a great amount of care and thought has gone into them or packages that are particularly spot-on and wonderful and feel somehow very special to me.
Please note that I sometimes drop my swaps in the post box instead of taking them to the postal office, and although I try my best to see that they are collected before (or on) the deadline, I can't always make sure that they are stamped on the deadline. Our postal system doesn't operate during weekends.
