About Me

Please know that you cannot always rely on the date on the postmark! I mark as send when I put in in the mailbox, that means it can be processed the day after. It also sometimes happens that the dates are simply not correct. I've received things that have been marked with a future date for example.

I'm 27 years old and I currently work at a sorting facility at the Swedish postal service. Before that, I studied an Economic Demography program in grad school. I've also studied political science, statistics, economics, some French and a little German. And some law and a short, short course in computer science/JAVA programming.

I live in Sweden, in the second largest city called Göteborg. I've lived here for a little over 7 years now. I moved here from the village of Åhus in the southern part of Sweden. It's known as the village that produces Absolut Vodka and still fishes eel.

I love to read books and cook and eat good food.

I try and recycle packaging as much as possible and I hope you don't mind that either.

Favorite Movies

I'm a big fan of romantic comedies, so my three favorite movies are

  • Notting Hill
  • Mamma Mia!
  • Valentine's Day

I also like Disney movies and the MARVEL movies. And the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit movies!

I do prefer tv-shows, though. Preferably crime shows like Criminal Minds or Hawaii Five-0. But I also love Gilmore Girls, Once Upon a Time, and my all time favorite is Chuck.

Favorite Music

I'm not a big fan of music. I do listen to it once in a while and I do have a quite particular taste, even if it is hard to exactly pinpoint what it is.

  • ABBA
  • Adele
  • Coldplay
  • The Ark
  • Bon Iver
  • Taylor Swift

Favorite Books

The Harry Potter books! I've read them countless of times and they are always something I return to when I don't know what to read.

I also like young adult books like the Percy Jackson series or the Septimus Heap series.

Another genre I like a lot is Nordic Noir (Scandinavian crime).

Another favorite book series is the one about the bounty hunter Stephanie Plum which is written by Janet Evanovich.

Favorite Crafts

I love to knit and to crochet. I prefer to work with natural fibers like merino wool and cotton.

I also recently got a spindle and would love to practice more and perhaps even try a real spinning wheel.

I've tried scrapbooking, but never really got into it.. Though I would like to try card making, I'm really curious about all the pretty flipbooks people make. But I'm a total newbie in the field, so I'd be happy to receive any products relating to this, like double-sided scrapbook paper.

Also, I really want to get into lettering and calligraphy.

General Favorites

Color: Red and white. Or any neutral or muted color

Animal: Dogs!! (Especially Dachshunds)

Drink: Coffee (definitely not decaf) and tea (not red rooibos!)

Food: Sushi, Italian, Seafood, Mexican... Pretty much anything, really, as long as it is well cooked.

Scent: Lavender or some citrus scent like lemon blossom

Candy: Liquorice and dark chocolate. Preferably combined.

Flower: Orchids, roses, and lavender

Homedecor style: Scandinavian simplicity

Things I enjoy receiving

Regarding Postcards: It doesn't matter at all to me if they are sent in an envelope or naked. Sender's choice! :-)

I don't collect stamps per say, but I really enjoy stamps and do save a lot of the international stamps I can get my hands on.

Fibers for spinning yarn.

Washi tape, stickers, and sticky notes or other things for my planner. (I use Hobonichi planners; the English Planner, Cousin, and Weeks)

Nice pens and other stationery like blank postcards, letter sets, and cards are always appreciated. I also love receiving blank notecards. They are for some reason very difficult to find in Sweden.

I also enjoy maps, both old and newer, so I would appreciate stickers, notecards etc with map motifs.

I have lately realized that I enjoy vintage themed things, ephemera, stickers etc!

Dislikes

Make-up! I'm not a daily user of make-up. I don't even know how to put on eyeshadow properly.

I don't like too many bright colors. Like a bright multicolored blanket for example. I prefer muted colors and nothing that looks like something that comes off a clown.

Hazelnuts and pecans! I'm not allergic, but I really don't like the flavor.

MELON I really can't stand the smell or taste of melon, so please do not send me anything with that!

Please don't send me any reward or kawaii stickers!
