About Me


Back after few years of break as i had a baby. Now the baby is not a baby anymore, so i have more time to continue a lovely hobby called swapping :)

Im 32 year old girl from Finland.

I Love colours, all colours really.. also black and white together, im easy to please :D

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.


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.

My favourite flower is poppy, and i love postcards, pictures, paper, stationary with poppies on :)

anything with a peace sign on. It's hard to specify it much as i sort of collect ANYTHING with peace sign on :D

guitars (pictures, stickers, picks)

rock'n'roll theme

washi tape

stars, moon and the sun. Galaxy

50's gangster style, old cars

Mail art

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.



hello kitty,


religious stuff.

No tea please - i don't like tea. Coffee and hot chocolate is ok!

Favorite Music

I love mainly rock and punk, but also like some heavymetal, country and pop.

Some of my favourite bands/artists are

Frank turner

The gaslight anthem

social distortion

Bruce springsteen

Dropkick murphies

Flogging Molly

The rumjacks

The pogues

Neil Young

Bob Dylan

Johnny Cash

Royal republic

Chuck Ragan

And many more :)

Favorite Movies

Almost famous

P.S I love you

Crazy Heart

Still Crazy

Country Strong

The Departed


Favorite Crafts

I love doing papercrafts.I love making cards, mail art and envelopes. So i would like to swap anything to do with papercrafts! Art Journalling, smash booking, scrapbooking. I love all of that.

I use planner an bullet journal daily, so very interested in swapping supplies :)

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.


That 1 rating is not right, that person rated me nearly 3 years after the swap, without any previous contact. After asking her why, she replied: "So sorry about that that was an accident....I didn't mean to rate anyone a one...was trying to check mark no ratings at this time. I'm not trying to get on anyone's bad side or jeopardize anyone's profile just working on getting my swaps rectified........" I have contacted swapbot admin but haven't had any reply yet.

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 :)



*50's STYLE


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!

Advertisement posters or postcards. Some cool/interesting magazine ads as well, but mainly posters and posrcards

Also i like stickers with single words/quotes

Planner stickers, embellishments and anything to use for decorating my planner :)

Airmail stickers from different countries (the free ones)!!

Washi tape - samples are more than fine and appreciated

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

interesting/colorful images/ magazine cutouts, magazine or newspaper pages

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 :)

Private swaps

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`?

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)


Mail/postal theme

50's style

American (route 66, diners, gas stations etc)

Weird/quirky ones - more weird - more better

Colorful ones

Pin up

Transport (cars/planes/boats/motorbikes)

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 :)

Flakers :(

Sadly i have to add this section to my profile too.

@runnerbean84 flaked on this swap - Kindly and amazingly angeled by the host @joyceann888 and an amazing swapper @SFreer

Comment: Elina, you outdid yourself with the most amazing envelope I have ever received, tailored especially to my love, Wizard of Oz. I have showed it to many people and they all are in awe (especially since it went from Finland to Kansas in perfect condition, not a bend in any corner) and I love the items you sent. You gave me a smile when I needed it most and for that you deserve more than one heart. thank you friend.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely stickers and the bonus washi!
Comment: Thank you for the cute red riding hood envie

shellyc rated for CPG Flat Planner Goodies - Global on May 26, 2018
Comment: Thank you for this great assortment of planner goodies!
Comment: I did not receive this. Happy to re-rate when received.
Response: I received this rating almost three years after the swap.. This person has 17 one ratings, and never once contacted me to tell that she hasn't received this. I have now sent a pm to her, asking about this. Don't think its very fair rating at all.
Comment: Thank you so much for the surprises- I loved the stickers- the necklace- everything. And the long letter just made it extra special- this swap made me very happy.
Comment: Thank you so much! :)

Hello Elina,

You made me very happy with the CPG:envelope of randomness that I received today. OMG! I love it all and really enjoyed receiving items (i.e.: Kino-palatsi papers, Ashley stickers, etc) that I have never had before. I will be able to use every single piece and you did a fabulous job of picking items for me. Thank you so very much. BrendaLea
