About Me

Please read:

As I live in Sweden, shipping can sometimes take a little longer.

Since I put my mail in a regular mailbox, the date on the package might not match the send date I clicked. It depends a little on the time and day I put it in the mailbox.

I never rate a 1 or 3 without contacting the sender first, I believe most things can be worked out! I hope you feel the same way!


I'm a crafty girl from Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. I live here with my 6 yo son Linus. My boyfriend and his 5 yo son lives with us part time. I used to do lots of swaps around when my son was born, but life got in the way and I had to stop for a while. So when I found swap-bot I was so excited!

In my free time I love doing things with my son! We're often alone together and we do all sorts of things. He loves to craft, and it warms my heart that he is getting quite good at it!

I also enjoy renovating our sail boat with my boyfriend. It's a 1946 mahogany/pine skerry cruiser.

And of course I craft a lot :)

I have a B.Sc in Geographical Information Technology and a B.A in English Literature. I work as an energy engineer, mainly with measuring and energy analysis in district heating.

Books, music, movies and TV

I prefer criminal novels, especially by P.D. James. I'm a real sucker for scifi, and I love the classic authors like Verne, Heinlein and Asimov. I also try to mix in some of the classics between the "mind numbing" fiction. I mostly read in swedish and english.

I listen to almost all sorts of music. My boyfriend is a true audiophile, so we listen to a lot of music at home. Everything from Johnny Cash and Lars Winnerbäck to Infected Mushroom and VNV Nation.

The movies that I like at the moment are Walk the Line, the Pirates trilogy, Kingdom of Heaven (I can watch this one over and over again!), and oh, I must not forget Smokey and the Bandit! I'm not really into romances, comedy or drama, and I don't do horror! I prefer death, destruction and action ;)

I don't watch a lot of TV, but when I do it is mostly Bones, CSI, House and Navy CIS, and I really like Little Britain and Big Bang Theory! In reality I watch more kids' tv than grown up stuff...

Favorite Crafts

I have tried most crafts I think... Knitting, crocheting, embroidery, bobbin lace, quilting, sewing, weaving, painting, card making, scrapbooking, jewelry, machine embroidery, and so on.

My favourite crafts at the moment are papercrafts and sewing.

I'd really like to try needle felting or creating with metal clay. Two crafts I have never tried :)

Likes

I like a lot of things...

  • Flowers: tulips, snow drops, geraniums, orchids, violets
  • Colours: I love autumn hues, like purple, rust and deep green. I also like pastels, like fairy dust. Heck, I love all colours!! I'm not really into neons though....
  • Scents: For candles, soaps and such, I like fresh and light scents, like citrus, cotton, fresh linen
  • Tea: I prefer black tea, but I like surprises :) Pure and flavoured are all welcome! But please no red tea/rooibos due to allergy.
  • Animals: Dragonflies, fish, deere, small birds, lady bugs
  • Nature: Mushrooms, fossils, leaves, think of a deep, old forest
  • Favourite season is autumn
  • Favourite holiday is christmas
  • I like a bit of nudity, preferrably vintage. I'm not easily offended by pictures or words! (please no religion though, see below) *I love gardening and nature, wheter it's my mom's green house or the forest. *I enjoy making home made gifts, especially from the kitchen! *I also like altering stuff, recycling and upcycling.

I would prefer not to get

  • Beads or jewlery making stuff (since I just got rid of my entire stash)
  • Makeup
  • Incense
  • Please no red tea/rooibos due to allergy
  • Heavily scented things
  • Please, no religious things, no bible verses, no crosses and such. This is a choice I have made in my life, and I hope you'll respect it, as I respect your choice of faith.

Comment: Thanks for sending a second time! These got here quickly. I wonder whatever happened to the first set! I like the set you made me a lot. How did you make the circles with the text? Did you use a sewing machine? Very nice affirmations.
Response: I'm glad you like them :) Sadly I've had several swaps go missing lately, don't know what the Swedish postal service is up to... I made a circle template in PhotoShop and added the text in the circles. Then I printed it and cut them with a circle punch. I inked the edges to create a contrast to the picture. Thanks for the heart! They were really fun to make!

Thank you for the beautifully done Mystery Baggie for the group Theme In A Baggie. This is the kind of thing I get so excited about. I love absolutely everything in the baggie and how you put it together. It is amazing and made my day. It is so cute I don't want to disturb anything. Thank you again for such a wonderful swap.

Hej! Jag har invitat dig till Swedish Swappers. Du kan svara på inbjudan om du klickar på Dashboard och utåt till höger kommer det då upp en gul ruta. Där kan du välja att klicka på ja eller nej.

Och det finns faktiskt sleeves i Sverige, jag köper mina på prisfyndet i uppsala men jag tror att det finns på Sci-fi bokhandeln i gamla stan. De i uppsala tar 15 kr för ett paket om ca 100st.
