About Me

We are a married couple from Finland. We both are the same age... 63 years old. We have a grown up daughter @Johkup who introdused this site to us. And she's our "translator". We are so excited to swap nice things and treats with you :)

My (Raija) birthday is the one that shows on the profile and my husband Seppo was born in April.

Cats are near our hearts. We have now 2 cats, red tabbys called Viljami and Einari. Viljami is a little tiger... well not so little! Adorable cat. Now he has a friend, smaller version of him. We've had cats for 30 years. Can't live without them!

We like to walk in the nature, dance, read magazines, do crossword puzzles.

Favorite Television

We like mostly Finnish TV programms, news, documents etc. TV is not our main focus at home...

Favorite Crafts

We are interested in card making, ATCs, drawing, painting but mainly postcard and some parcel swaps.


It would be nice to swap different goodies like candy, chocolate, coffee, snacks from other countries :) We have no allergies. And some crafts and postcards. Postcards are also our hobby especially touristy, animals, nature, flowers and all beautiful pictures. Anything that brightens the day :) Also animal related swaps interest us like cat treats and toys.


  • Postcards

  • Cat related items

  • Stickers (small for decorating postcards etc.)

  • (Beautiful napkins) We have these a lot at the moment! No need for more.

  • Lettersets, paper, envelopes with nice pictures

  • Candy, chocolate

  • cookies/biscuits

  • salty snacks, nuts

  • coffee (cappucino, latte etc.)

  • teatowels

  • Souvenirs (magnets, shot glasses, snow globes, decorations, keychains etc.)

  • shower gels, other beauty products

  • pillow cases

Suomesta: Juhlamokka kahvi, helpot ristikkolehdet, joululehdet, tumma suklaa (alle 70%) esim. Panda, Marabou premium, tavallinen lakritsa tai täytelakut, Domino-keksit, kaurakeksit, kuviollisia/värikkäitä kirjekuoria, postikortteja mm: Muumit, Inge Löök, tarroja

We will always send our swaps and rate what we get. If we misunderstand some swap and send something that's not what was supposed to send please let us know so we can make it up to you! English is not our native language.

Happy swapping!


If you have something important or urgent to ask/tell me you'd better message my daughter @Johkup She is more online and helps me with these swaps. But of course I like to get messages too :)

If you could write something in our language, finnish, that would be great ;) Something we would understand for sure! You can ask @Johkup to help you if you want and Google translator is great help.

CHWH: Positive Note

Tranquil pleasures last the longest; we are not fitted to bear the burden of great joys. ~Christian Nestell Bovee

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. ~Frederick Keonig

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Dalai Lama

Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower. ~Author Unknown

Dare to be different, the world is full of the ordinary!

Surround yourself with the dreamers, the joyful, the thinkers and the believers but especially those who can see how wonderful you are - even on those days when you have forgotten.

Have an amazing week xx

CHWH: Positive note

Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

Have a wonderful life!

CHWH: Positive note

Life is too short to have many regrets. Smile at people in the streets - you never know who needed that. Try to help when you see someone struggling - they will be thankful.

If you look at the sun - the shadow is behind you.

I hope you have a really great day. Hugs from Germany!
