Hi!

I'm a 30 years old female from Helsinki, Finland. Crafting is my number one hobby and sewing is what I like the most. I also love crocheting, knitting, screen printing fabric and all kinds of DIY projects. I'm always eager to try new crafts! My other hobbies include jogging, badminton and photographing. In summer I like to grow herbs on my balcony and to cycle around with my bicycle exploring new places. In winter I ski and go ice skating. I get enthusiastic easily and would like to learn all kinds of new skills, but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day. :/ At the moment I'm interested in learning iOS programming, woodworking and to draw better. :o)

I’m also deeply in love with Scandinavian style interior design and decoration. I have a master’s degree in Finnish (I specialized in onomastics) and I have a great interest in linguistics and languages. My current projects are being able to read books written in North Sami without having to use dictionary so much and learning to understand spoken Danish better. :)

You’ll mostly see me participating in food category swaps. I love to get to taste different edible goodies from around the world & to choose and send Finnish goodies to swappers in other countries. I don’t collect anything and I have quite a minimalistic approach to items, which means I’m constantly trying to keep my home free from all the unnecessary stuff. Less is better. So edibles are a great thing to swap because they usually disappear very quickly! ;)

Swaps

Please contact me if you haven't received my package within a reasonable time so we can sort it out. I'm sending from Finland so please note that it normally takes a few weeks for the package to reach the other side of the globe.

I reuse packaging!

â–º Edibles & Drinks I Like

If my partner is from Finland: Olen tietenkin oikein iloinen kaikesta, mitä minulle lähetät, mutta jos sinulla vain on mahdollisuus ostaa jotain erikoisempaa tai paikallista, niin se olisi varsin mukavaa! Olen lisäksi onnettoman hidas maistamaan uutuustuotteita, joten siinä on melko hyvä tärppi, jos haluat hankkia jotain, mitä en todennäköisesti ole aikaisemmin maistanut. :)

/ / / / / /

● Tea

I love to drink tea! It's so much fun to get to taste all kinds of different teas and to find new favorites.

♥ I basically like all kinds of teas, but my favorite is flavored green tea.
♥ I also like rooibos and honeybush.
♥ My favorites are fruity and mint flavors.

♥ Some of my favorite teas that I can't get from Finland: Althaus Rooibush strawberry cream

✖ Please don’t send loose tea unless it's in its original unopened package.

/ / / / / /

● Chocolate

♥ I like all kinds of chocolates: milk, dark and white, but I usually buy dark or milk chocolate.
♥ I like chocolate with special flavor or fillings. I especially love chocolate with peanut butter, nuts or sea salt!
♥ If there is chocolate with coconut in it available in your country (other than Bounty, Ritter Sport, Biona or Schogetten), I'd love to taste it!

♥ Some of my favorite chocolates that I can't get from Finland: everything from Reese's, everything with peanut butter, Milka chocolates (we only have the basic milk chocolate, Schoko & Keks, Luflée Caramel, Triolade and Choco Jelly), Ritter Sport seasonal editions, Marabou Co-Co, Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel, Lindt Hello Salted Caramel

♥ Chocolates I've never tasted but would like to: Snickers Peanut Butter, Cadbury Fudge, Nidar Polly, Nidar Hobby, Lindt Hello Sweet Popcorn

✖ I don't like chocolate with liqueur, marzipan, wafer or chili pepper in it.
✖ Please don’t send me plain chocolate without any fillings, flavor or some other special twist (unless it says so in the swap description).
✖ Hershey’s milk chocolate bar (this one) tastes completely awful to me, so please spare me from reliving that traumatic moment. :D

/ / / / / /

● Other

♥ I like chocolate/yogurt covered dried fruits & berries & nuts, candy, toffee, caramel, fudge, licorice, salted licorice and hot chocolate.
♥ Some of my favorites that I can't get from Finland: Nørregade Ugle Mad candies, Larabars

✖ I don't like lollipops, bubble gum, marzipan or marshmallows.
✖ I don’t like anything too spicy hot.
✖ I don’t like to eat edibles that have grains as the main ingredient (cookies, cake, pastries, cereal bars, wafers etc.)

/ / / / / /

● Flavors

♥ Favorites: all fruits and berries, anise, cardamom, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, irish cream, licorice, mint, peppermint
♥ I don’t drink coffee, but I like everything coffee flavored.
♥ If there is some fruit, berry, spice, flavor etc. that is typical to your area/country, I’d be happy to taste anything made with it!

â–º Non-edible Things I Like

♥ My favorite colors are white, black, grey and yellow. When it comes to clothes, I prefer black and grey.
♥ I like graphic motifs: stripes, dots, scallop edges, triangles etc.
♥ Being a geography freak I’ve always loved different maps. I often use vintage maps/map pages when I’m crafting with paper, so if you happen to have any spare ones lying around, you are very welcome to send them my way. :)
♥ My favorite character is Krtek (The Mole). He’s so adorable! :)

â–º Please No

Bath & body products, cosmetics, scents, stickers, scrapbooking supplies, candles, gift wrapping ribbons, jewellery (I'm so picky and I'm allergic to nickel), freebie/commercial items, samples, dollar store items, glittery things, magnets.

I'm atheist so please don't send me religious items. I don't decorate for any holidays, so please no Santa Claus, Easter Bunnies, Halloween etc. items or decorations (other than edible).

Comment: Such a lovely postcard! Thank you so much :). It was an interesting read too. You have such nice handwriting, haha, how?! (I don't :P). Alsfeld is indeed in Hessen. One of my friends also went to this concert :P maybe they'll meet each other, though I doubt it, haha. Thank you for the nice postcard again, it was fun swapping with you!
