About Me

Hi, I'm Moa and I'm from Sweden.

I work in a paint store (the BORING kind of paint; the one you put on your walls, not the FUN kind that you make paintings with), and live in an apartment that somehow is only devoid of Stuff On Every Possible Surface for about an hour after I've cleaned it. Then, I start filling every surface with Projects again ... I wouldn't have it any other way, though.

As of March 2017, I'm taking it easy with the swaps. Not quitting, just not entering as many as before as I have some other things I need to catch up on.

Favorite Books

I love a lot of books. I am a huge fan of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong, and also enjoyed the Temeraire series - at least to where I currently am (book 6, and that was a pretty good place to end it in my opinion, so I'm kinda considering not reading further .. oh but who am I kidding, of course I will! Eventually). I've read Jean M Auel's books more times than I can count (NOT the last one though ... I don't know why, haven't felt like it I guess) - although I tend to just re-read my favourite parts these days.

My favourite book of all time is "Good Omens" by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (if you haven't read it; read it, it's awesome), because it is undescribably good.

In Swedish, I re-read Niklas Krog's triology about once a year, and I tend to fall back on my childhood favourite, Kulla-Gulla (which no one outside of Sweden has probably heard of) from time to time.

Poetry-wise, I love rhymes and beat; Edgar Allan Poe when I'm feeling dramatic (I can only understand about half of his poems though), and Dorothy Parker (any time, anywhere, in any situation). A smart nursery rhyme is never wrong, either.

Also, I read comics. Lots of them. Only well-drawn ones though, or REALLY well-written ones. I'm there for the Art or the Story, basically.

And I read a lot of fanfics. A LOT of fanfics. I mean, like, INSANE amounts, from a lot of different fandoms, because fanfics? Can give me an instant fix. I want to read comedy? I read a funny fanfic. I want to read something sad? I read an angsty one. It's just so easy. Any fanfic with well-written characters is a good fanfic. I love you all, fanfic writers of the world!

Favorite Movies

This is gonna be a long list. rubs hands together ... where to begin? Okay, in NO order at all ... clears throat:

  • "Hacksaw Ridge"
  • "Spiderman: Homecoming"
  • "Fantastic beasts and where to find them"
  • "Now you see me 2"
  • "Toy Soldiers" (from 1991)
  • "Hot Fuzz"
  • "Despicable me"
  • "Megamind"
  • "Pacific Rim"
  • "Mean girls"
  • "Armageddon" (at least the scene when they're interviewed before the training)
  • "The man from U.N.C.L.E."
  • "Transformers" (1&2)
  • "Con Air" (because you can ALWAYS watch Con Air!)
  • "Zombieland"
  • "Disturbia"
  • "Yrrol"
  • "The Princess Bride"
  • "Losers"
  • "Tangled"
  • "Shakespeare in love"
  • "Return to OZ"
  • "Sky high" (it's a guilty pleasure, ok??)
  • "Cry-Baby"
  • "Donnie Darko"
  • "The 51st state"
  • "The Mask"
  • "Tropic Thunder"
  • "Addams family values"
  • "Kung fu hustle"
  • "Scent of a woman" (at least the scene where he makes his speech in the end)
  • "Rock of ages"
  • "Airheads"
  • "Cool Runnings" ("Ya man")
  • "Hocus pocus"
  • "Die Hard 4"
  • "Flight of the navigator" (a classic from when I was a kid, probably not as good today ...)
  • "Honey I shrunk the kids" (also a classic from when I was a kid - and DEFINITELY as good today!)
  • "Outlander" (I don't WANT to like it, but I do!)
  • "The breakfast club"
  • "Hero" (so beautiful!)
  • "Titan AE"
  • "Hot shots 2"
  • "Some like it hot" (a REALLY old movie, but oh so good!)
  • "Prince of Persia"
  • "Star Trek"
  • "Dogma"
  • "Inception"
  • "Terminator" (2&3)
  • "Waterworld"
  • "Paranorman"
  • "The Lion King"
  • "Nightmare Before Christmas"
  • "Deadpool"
  • "Mulan"
  • "Rise of the Guardians"
  • "Fright Night"
  • "Tootsie"
  • "Guardians of the Galaxy" (1 and 2)

... just to name a few.

Honestly, most superhero movies. And funny movies, and action movies, and movies with really nice special effects or really well-written movies. I like to be ENTERTAINED (so no miserable dramas based on real events, please).

I just like a lot of movies, okay

Favorite Television

Last thing I watched was "The Flash" (mostly because Leonard Snart, tbh, because I watched "Legends of Tomorrow" and fell in love with the character).

I usually enjoy shows where I get to watch people create things, like - for example - cooking or baking shows. (I can watch youtube videos of things being made for HOURS)

When it comes to scripted shows, I like a lot of them, but to be honest - mostly because the fanfic potential. I fall in love with a show or characters in a show, and then I go looking for fanfics for that show. I tend to like the fandoms more than the shows ... but! That being said, I like (in no particular order, again):

  • "Scorpion"
  • "Pushing Daisies"
  • "Seaquest"
  • "The Musketeers"
  • "Firefly"
  • "Stranger things"
  • the first few seasons of "Supernatural"
  • the first season of "Under the Dome"
  • ... and I was insanely into "Teen Wolf" for, like, the first three seasons (because of the awesomeness that is Stiles, let's be honest). Come to think of it, I like the FIRST FEW SEASONS of a lot of shows ... but the general rule is that my interest will wane after a few seasons ...

I also have a list of about 30 shows that I WILL watch, at some point. So I have my work cut out for me. :)

Favorite Crafts

Oooh! I love everything craft-y, basically, but I can't say that I have a favourite, as I jump between everything as I feel like it.

I like drawing and writing and painting and baking and sculpting and jewelry-making and cooking and everything in between.

I've gone on courses to learn jewelry making with silver clay and chain maille, screen printing and throwing clay.

I've also been knitting, crocheting, sewing, working with leather and made costumes and masks.

Anything that concerns Making Something or learning something craft-like, and I'm sure to love it. It has to take some skill, though - it can't be too easy, or I'll be bored. (I am NOT into most paper crafts, so sending me scrapbooking stuff will just confuse me.)

I basically just want to learn everything. I love trying and learning new crafts.

Things I like

  • Shower gels that smell good
  • Cereal (I prefer the kinds that aren't so sweet)
  • Leonard Snart's Captain Cold voice (and the character in general)
  • Sunglasses that fit round/wide faces
  • Fairytales and myths from all over the world
  • Chocolate and mint and liquorice (and any combination of the three)
  • Spider-Man / Peter Parker
  • Comments (on things I've drawn, on things I've written, on swaps I've sent - did you like it? NOT like it? Let me know)
  • Bucky Barnes
  • Nice art ("And what is NICE?" you may wonder. Well ... art that ... I ... like ... :S)
  • Marvel comics & movies
  • Watching things get made
  • The smell of books
  • Going to bed in newly washed sheets
  • Birds
  • Reading good fanfics
  • Duct tape (good for everything: one can never have too many rolls!)
  • Sending and receiving mail
  • Popcorn
  • Going to the movies (and I have nothing against going to the movies by myself)
  • Movies in general
  • Deadpool
  • Fashion from the 50s (I have wide hips so that fashion fits me ... too bad I rarely wear dresses)
  • Baking sweet things
  • Well-drawn or well-written comics
  • Whump (a guilty pleasure)
  • Photos (real ones, not digital ones - both old and new ones)
  • The Internet
  • Awesome ladies
  • Rhymes
  • Dragons
  • Smart ways to store stuff
  • Sleeping in
  • Fika (=meeting a friend for like a hot chocolate and a cinnamon roll or a piece of pie or something at a café)
  • Eating in general (it's one of the best things one can do, in my opinion). :)

Things I dislike

  • Ignorant and non-accepting people and their comments
  • Decorative things that have no use or purpose, that I haven't chosen for myself (or are related to my fandoms)
  • Coffee
  • Way too tourist-y things
  • Dried meat
  • Being late
  • Certain social situations (I am a well-functioning introvert who prefers to spend my free time at home or with close friends, rather than out and about)
  • Facebook
  • Bad spelling and use of grammar by myself (so please tell me if you find any errors)
  • Most sports (surprisingly, not rugby, which is for some reason an okay sport to watch)
  • Bugs (spiders in particular)
  • Donald Trump and everything to do with him
  • Raisins in cookies/food
  • Smoking and alcohol
  • Customers who just want discounts for everything without having done anything to earn them. Grrr.

I am not overly fond of stuff that has no purpose and that I cannot use (random stickers or pieces of paper etc - unless it somehow relates to stuff I like - like movies or comics or superheroes).

Wish list

Okay, so something that I am looking for but haven't been able to get in my own country ( ie, reasons to move abroad ...):

  • Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream - this is a DREAM. Like Nutella, but BETTER. I had it once in Switzerland, and I bought four jars back with me (I was backpacking, I couldn't carry any more than four ...)! I LOVE this, but I can't get a hold of it, and I MISS it!

  • Those spiced cider bags. Small bags with a powder that you mix with hot water and get a LOVELY drink. I've gotten two of them in swaps before, and I LOVE them.

  • M'n'M's dark chocolate mint. I've seen that they exist, but I've never tried them. Would like to, some day.

So, if by any divine intervention I'd get any of that in the mail, it would make my MONTH. For things like these, I'm also open to private swaps.

Comment: Moa! You did a beautiful job on your mermaid ATC's! I teach watercolor in my art classes. It isn't easy! Good job! I tell my kids; work light to dark letting it dry in between and stay away from black. Use dark blue mixed with a touch of orange. Black doesn't reflect the light and you want it to be full of rich color. .....and trust the water...it does beautiful things! Like the merman's hair and in the background! Brava!
Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked them, and thank you for the pointers! I have heard that thing about the blue and the orange, but I'd forgotten about it, but I will definitely try it now. Thanks!

Comment: Oh my gosh. This was amazing! It's definitely one of my favorite swaps ever received. My pop-up book is crap compared to this one. It turned out SO extraordinary! I loved everything, including the beautiful bag!
Response: I'm so glad it got there, and I'm even more glad that you liked it! I was worried for a while that it had been lost in the mail, but then I read your profile (and I hope you're feeling better!). Anyway, thank you for hosting such a lovely swap!

Comment: Thanks so much for the lovely package. I adore the hedgehog timer and the owl cupcake papers - I can't wait to try the rose. I ate a lot of Daim chocolate when I visited Prague - I'm so looking forward to the chocolate! Have a wonderful day. Happy Swapping!
Response: I'm glad you liked it! And I hope the hedgehog works, and can help you in your baking. :)

Comment: Just to add a heart to my rating as despite the fact I don't eat candy, my kids and their friends have really enjoyed tasting the things you sent me and it's been a lot of fun - thank you again and Happy Easter!
Response: I'm sorry, I had prepared the egg before we were assigned partners, but I should have double-checked! SOME of it was chocolate, but I hope that you could give away the other stuff. I honestly just forgot to check in my rush to send it off so it'd get there in time (I'm actually surprised it was so fast!), I'm sorry. Wishing you a happy easter anyway! :D

Comment: Ah, Moa, you're insane!!! The mail man just huffed and puffed up the stairs to bring me your massive box of Swedish goodness. I'm one lucky cookie to be partnered up with you this much because your swaps are always exceptional. Some of the things you sent I knew already (the cheese - my boyfriend will go nuts because we bought this so much on our holiday!) and some are completely new to me and I'm excited (the rosehip soup sounds super interesting!). And you sent me Dumle!!! Awesome, shiny new ones!!! I want to kiss you. :D
Response: Oh yay, it got there okay! I'm glad. Like I said, I don't know if you'll like everything, but I hope you like at least some of it. If you want to let me know what you thought of things when you've tried them - for example the rosehip soup - it would be interesting to know what you thought. Also, let me know if you need anything translated! :D

Comment: Ok Moa I am officially blown away... What an amazing package... Everything is SOOO great... And how did you know I have been looking for a copy of "Nordens Flora" for ages... And the tea the lip balm OMT OMT OMT ... Everything is so perfect I wish I had more words to say thank you ... Kinda like the Innuit and the snow... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Response: I'm so very happy that you liked it! Nordens Flora is actually several books, I think ... I know there are some swedish auction sites that has them sometimes, you could check out tradera.se for example. Google translate may come in handy though ... But I'm glad you liked the package! :D

Comment: Thank you very much for the wonderful package you sent me, even before opening it, I was very exited because of the wonderful wrapping. I love everything inside, and I am exited to try the goodies. As for the souveniers: You inspired me to update my profile, because I love the matchbox, and it is very useful, so you are right, useful souveniers are wonderful:)
Response: I'm glad I could inspire you! (Hmm, I should probably look over my profile as well ...) And I'm very very happy that you liked what I sent you :)

Have a good day!

I'm so glad you like the gift I got you! It actually is one of my favourite comic book series of all times, so I really really hope you'll love it as much as I do. I got the feeling we have the same taste in comic books, so I went for it. Also, if you look closely you'll see that the author (Warren Ellis) is the same as "crooked little vein", the book I sent you in an earlier swap. Have you had the chance to read it yet? In my eyes he's an utter genius. And I'd love to hear if you agree once you've had a look into his world. :-)
