My Flickr Photos
When you send an swap or tag for me, could you please include a little note with your username and the swapname and anything else if you want. I'm working on a swap-bot smash journal that i would love to add notes from the swaps and tags :) Thank you!
I have only just started to use Flickr, so there's not that many pics yet. But will be adding as i go :)
Im 27 year old girl from Finland.
I love coffee, Seaside, Birds, black and white photographs, used postage stamps, ephemera, mail art and receiving mail in general.
My favourite colours are black, purple, silver and all shades of grey, but i do like rainbow colours as well. The only ones i don't like that much are baby pink and baby blue.
I love music. Simple as that, just listening but also going to see live bands, talking about it, sing along (even it may sound horrible), reading books, anything and everything really.
Im big fan of spicy food, my favourites being Indian and Chinese. And i like trying new recipes and i do also bake quite slot.. Sometimes they dont turn just right but i like it anyway. Would love to receive and share some recipes as well!
Anything handmade, I appreciate the time and effort people put in anything they make themselves.
Birds, Garden birds, birds of prey, owls, symbolic birds. I just love them :)
Animals in general. I am always willing to stand up for animal rights, and my big dream is to one day have a big enough place to have as an animal retirement home.
gardening, wildflowers, herbs. I wish the next place where i live would have even a little garden for me to plant some flowers in, and make it as wildlife friendly as possible! Any creative gardening tips are always welcome, as well as upcycling/recycling in the garden as well.
My favourite flower is poppy, and i love postcards, pictures, paper, stationary with poppies on :) Even if you have some spare seeds, i would love to plant some in my mums garden :
anything with a peace sign on. It's hard to specify it much as i sort of collect ANYTHING with peace sign on :D
rubberstamps, all kinds!
black and white photos/postcards
guitars (pictures, stickers, picks)
skulls, rock'n'roll theme/era.
stars, moon and the sun.
polkadots and stripes - especially colorful ones!
50's gangster style, old cars
Handmade envelopes/decorated envelopes
DISLIKES ( i will update this over time) and also it's sort of a guide on things i'm not too keen on, even tho im generally happy to receive mail.
No tea please - i don't like tea. Coffee and hot chocolate is ok!
I love mainly rock and punk, but also like some heavymetal, country and pop.
Some of my favourite bands/artists are
The gaslight anthem
Hillbilly Moon Explosion
And many more :)
P.S I love you
Sweet home Alabama
The Banger sisters
I am Sam
I love doing papercrafts.I love making cards, mail art and envelopes. So i would like to swap anything to do with papercrafts! Journalling, smash booking, scrapbooking. I love all of that.
I love art journals and been working on one a lot lately. Also any kind of mail art is nearly becoming an obsession to me :) I'm always so proud picking up my mail and seeing the beautiful envelopes among the plain bills and boring stuff.
I have a thing for craft papers (colourful, plain, decorated, ANY kind really), stationary, embellishments, rubber stamps and handmade envelopes :D
I love to recycle/upcycle things. i use old magazines to make baskets and jewellery, i also use old clothes to either make bags with, or scarves or make yarn from them and crochet something. There endless opportunities to use up stuff that might be concidered as waste. I would really appreciate you sharing ideas how you recycle/upcycle : )
I do take swapping seriously and will send everything on time and make an effort so who ever gets a swap from me would be happy with it!
I mark my swaps as sent when i drop them in the post office or postbox, so if it's in the evening, the stamp date won't be until the next day or if it's a bank holiday, the next working day :)
I don't flake, if i have an issue, i will send an pm, and let my partners know.
I do fairly many tags, and always send mine. I hope that people who sign for the tag games, would keep their end of the deal as well, even there's no rating system.
I am generally quite happy to receive anything in the mail, but what would make me that bit happier would be these things :)
Anything by/with/on my favourite bands posters, stickers, articles.. anything really
PLAYING CARDS - I'd love some random playing cards to complete a deck with all different ones. so if you have any spare, would be very happy to receive them. Also have lots to trade!!
Band stickers or advertising vinyl stickers, any kind really would be much appreciated!
Used postage stamps from around the world. All kinds are welcome but the themes i like the most are transport (trains, cars, planes, boats, motorbikes etc), bridges, birds, peace themed and flowers/plants.
Advertisement posters or postcards. Some cool/interesting magazine ads as well, but mainly posters and posrcards
Also i like stickers with single words/quotes
Punchies/shapes from cutting machine.. any shape and color. Also any size circles, squares, hearts.. Especially 1" squares are much needed.
Black and white atc's, or atc's in bit more alternative theme.
Airmail stickers from different countries (the free ones)!!
Inchies and twinchies made by you or someone else
Old paperbags, tickets, posters.. any ephemera really.
Pin-up themed items, retro items, gangsterstyle items, posters, pictures, cards, and so on...
Craft paper, scrap paper, decorated, textured, any kind really will get used.
deco and washi tape - I know the "real" washi tape is fairly expensive, so it's not so popular in the swaps, but i would love to receive your own designs, or your handmade tapes, any lengths really.
anything vintage or vintage looking to put on my mail art or journals i do
Anything with a peace sign on - this could be paper, keyring, fabric, stickers.... anything really with peace sign or word, and i will like it!
Anything with birds on - love love love birds
any smashbooking supplies or and journalling supplies and prompts
interesting/colorful images/ magazine cutouts, magazine or newspaper pages, stamped images on interesting/unusual paper
I don't have allergies, and like mos of chocolates, and sweets. I would love to also try some spice mixes,from different countries.
I don't ask you to spend a fortune on my swap, lot of things i like/wish for are stuff you might already keep in your stash. I don't mind seconhand or used stuff, but no broken items please :)
I like doing private swaps!! I could send souvenirs, ephemera or candy/food items from Finland, or anything to do with papercrafts/stamping/stationary.Or maybe you like profile based/surprise swaps`?
I would like to trade some postage stamps too!
I would be interested of a longer term penpal/swapping friend. We could send a letter and something nice with it.. Like something the other one collects or change it a bit every time or what have you.
I would also be interested for handmade journal or longer journal project as a private swap. The sort of projects that are bit more time consuming :)
Please PM me if you would like a private swap!!
And sadly after doing some private swaps, without actually making them to proper swaps and being flaked on, i will from now on do even the smallest trades through a set up swap, so the ratings are available.
I am getting SO into collecting postcards nowdays :) I have a small but slowly growing collection and now i am on the lookout for new ones!
The themes i like the most are:
Black and white
Flowers (poppies especially)
American (route 66, diners, gas stations etc)
And lot of other themes as well.. i prefer no city/town views only.. if its something that tells something more about your city/town it's fine :)
Sadly i have to add this section to my profile too.
