About Me

My hobbies include drawing, painting, all kinds of artsy and craftsy stuff. I've been geocaching for 3 years. I love being outdoors and especially in the woods. I also love swimming.

I have a bit weird/dark sense of humour, and I'm not offended by nudity, Queer stuff, army stuff, guns, hunting, anatomical pictures etc. Just the opposite! Also profanity doesn't bother me at all (in the right context). I think many Finnish people have quite a laid back attitude towards swearing. Check wikipedia Finnish profanity, if you don't believe me :D

I like my postcards to be sent naked, unless it's drawn|painted|collaged|etc piece of art and you fear it wont survive the voyage to Finland in one piece. I love receiving and reading postcards that are full of text. Blank postcards are a bit blah, don't ya think? Write (or draw! I really appreciate drawings) about your day, region, events in your life, write a story, some eccentric or surreal stuff that makes little to no sense.

I'm a lacto-ovo-vegetarian, which means I don't eat any kind of meat, but I do eat dairy and egg products. Gelatin is also okay (it is an ingredient in many candies etc)

Colors that I love I do love most colors, but I am particulary drawn to teal, turquoise, ocean blues and greens, mint, and shades of purple. I do like pastel colours. I like army greens and greys also and. Brown paper is nice. Prints I like especially Galaxy print, camouflage (the ones with greens/greygreens color scheme), chevron, rainbows!

Tea

I love:

‚ô• all kinds of fruit and herbal infusions are my absolute favourites! I even enjoy weird flavour-combinations!

I also drink rooibos. White tea and green tea that I drink are usually flavoured.

I love natural flavours and ingredients!

Some awesome tea I love, but can't get from my country: London Fruit&Herb Company: Lemon&Lime Zest Organic India: Tulsi Mulehti and other Tulsi-teas STASH's herbal infusions. I really loved pomegranete&raspberry and would love to try other flavours. Cornwall: aus Omas Fr√ľchtekorb Apfelholunder

‚ô• I'm open for all kinds of new tea experiences.

please don't tape the teabags together with regular tape. If you must, use washi tape. It doesn't leave any marks. Regular tape often rips the packages, and I use the packages in my tea-tasting journal, which is starting to look like a weird tea-scrapbook :D

I don't like:

‚ô† Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Ceylon or plain black tea. BUT I do drink flavoured black tea

‚ô†Blackcurrant.

‚ô† I have easy access to Lipton, Twinings and Nordqvist tea, since almost all stores in Finland have them. It's okay if they are what you have at hand, since I do like many of their flavours :)

I'm open for private tea-swaps :)

Candy

I like:

‚ô• Milk chocolates and white chocolates in general. Chocolate with air bubbles. Chocolate with toffee, nougat, nuts, coconut, yogurt etc filling. I don't like dark chocolate, coffee or marzipan flavoured chocolate.

‚ô• Candy/Chocolate/Snacks from your region

‚ô•I love Salty snacks ‚ô•Garlic, basil, tomato etc snacks‚ô•I love healthy snacks ‚ô•Vegetarian/Vegan snacks are also great

‚ô•Gummybears‚ô•Skittles‚ô•Nuts‚ô• ‚ô•Weird japanese DIY candy would be nice to try‚ô•Dried fruit and berries

‚ô•I'm always willing to try new things, so suprise me :)

I don't like

‚ô† Liquorice allsorts ‚ô†Dark chocolate ‚ô†Candy that's very hard or very chewy/sticky like hard english toffee or many toffee (i however like toffee filling in chocolate, if it is not as mentioned above) ‚ô†Chewing Gum that consists of only sugar ‚ô†Stuff with chili if it is very hot ‚ô†Blue cheese flavoured anything ‚ô†Artifical Grape or Blackcurrant flavour in candy (doesn't bother so much in tea if it's amongst other ingriedients. Meaning that there are atleast 3 other ingridients)

Favorite Crafts

‚ô• Decos & mailart. I've been swapping decos since 2007. I've done a couple of ATCs and it would be nice to make more, especially drawn/painted.

‚ô• Carving rubberstamps (If you happen to have uncarved rubberstamp carving rubber, for example speedball or some japanese brand, I am very happy to receive even small pieces of it. For some reason they don't sell that anywhere in Finland). I have quite a few rubberstamps, and I absolutely love weird stamps (for example: I have this realistic rubber stamp of a can of Spam, and it's one of my favs :D Very many Viva Las Vegas-style stamps are to my liking as they are so crazy. I don't care so much for Tilda-style stamps or stamps of cutesy babies or children. Unless it's a realistic baby that looks weird/disturbing :D)

‚ô•Silkpainting

‚ô•I sometimes make cards

‚ô•Shrinkplastic

‚ô†I don't knit or crochet or need yarn in anything

Entertainment

Television: Black Sails, The 100, The Walking Dead (I'm a huge fan, and also a fan of Norman Reedus), Game of Thrones, Supernatural, Hell on Wheels, Vikings, Defiance, Sense8, Sons of Anarchy, True Detective, Deadwood, Last Ship

Actors Norman Reedus, Tommy Flanagan, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Clara Paget, Tilda Swinton, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Dormer, Steve Buscemi, Robert Carlyle, Ellen Page, Clea Duvall

Music I have a very eclectic taste in music (as I have in everything), and I usually listen to playlists of various artists

Games ‚ô•Final Fantsy VII‚ô• is the best game ever! I've played it through ridiculously many times :D Last of Us. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Morrowind. I also love playing boardgames with my friends.

Random Stuff I Love

All things Zombie, Squirrels, Penguins, Kawaii envelopes (I don't have many envelopes at the moment), Cinnamoroll, Rilakkuma, Mindwave stickers, Stickerflakes, Kawaii stuff like stationery and stickers, Stickers in general, letter stickers, fuzzy Sandylion stickers, Kawaii-tooth stationery and stickers, Stuff with camouflage patterns (green, forest green and greyish green camo are my favs), duct tape with camo-pattern would be so awesome to use in crafts, Vintage propaganda stuff (especially if it's colourful, weird and/or funny), Vintage army stuff, Religious images/stuff if they are colourful and/or kitchy, Rainbows, Carebears, vintage MLP, GLBT, Queer stuff, Feminism

Things I like to use for mixed-media crafting: old viewmaster discs, vintage photos, illustrations from retro (retro meaning anything that isn't designed with a computer lol) childrens educational books that are nature/science themed (those with awesome vivid color) , Anatomical pictures (of animals especially), Vintage nude pictures (women), decotape, washitape, stickers, ink, acrylics, hand painted backrounds, scrapbook paper, faber castell pitt artist pen brush tip (any colour, don't mind if they are used if it still works fine), fineliner technical pens 005 or 01, rubber stamps (I like getting used rubber stamps, ink stains don't matter as long as they still stamp a good image :) random polaroid or instax photos

Dislikes/things I don't need

‚ô†Dark Chocolate ‚ô†Hard and/or chewy/sticky candy ‚ô†Touristy stuff (unless I am in a touristy-themed swap) ‚ô†loose glitter ‚ô†Make-up and nailpolish (I don't wear make-up daily, and when I do I use only a few products. However I do use things like facial masks, hair masks, foot baths etc beauty/pampering products) ‚ô†Girly accessorizes, like things with bling bling, glitter, pink etc (I'm not a girly girl and have no use for these items) ‚ô†Used postal stamps (I don't collect them)
