About Me

Hello you!

You can call me Essu, I'm 19 years old and I live in Finland. I started Postcrossing 4 years ago and now I decided to join in here. So exciting!

I have a one cat and nature means a lot to me - maybe because I've grown up in a countryside. Some people would say that I have a optimistic view for life. I think there are many things in every day to be happy about. It doesn't have to be a big thing, but still something, every day. Happiness comes in small doses, I think :)

! Can you please write date on the card ! When I read those cards after many years, it would be nice to know when I've received it.

Happiness of my life

  • Cats, obviously. For my whole life, I've always had at least one cat as a pet♥ And other animals are of course nice too.

  • When having my friends or family at my place and I can bake something tasty for them with coffee

  • Winter - my favourite time of a year. I love it when first snow falls and everything will be covered with snow.

  • Christmas, everything related to Christmas!♥ Snowmen, reindeers, snowflakes, gingerbreads, candy canes, elves.. Did you know that my username 'kaneli' is Finnish and means cinnamon :D I'm totally Christmas-lover.


Some dislikes:

  • If I can't get a proper breakfast at the morning. It makes me to be annoyed for the rest of the day.. :D I just need a oat meal porridge with some berries or fruits. Every day.
  • Peppermint and liquorice tea. Those just doesn't work with the tea..
  • When receiving a postcard with only a few words on it. I love to read about different peoples life, thoughs, work, dreams, daily things, weather.. Anything, so please write as much text as possible!

Please don't send me:

  • religious themed things
  • hair clips, ear rings

Favorite Crafts

Crafts, I love to do! Knitting is really nice and relaxing. I have a plan for Christmas - I try to knit socks and mittens for my all family and friends. Why there is only 24 hours a day.. :D

I also love to wrap gifts. It's nice to make a packet pretty, I like to do minimalist. Sometimes I also like to do cross-stitching and embroidery. Making cards is also a skill I would love to learn.

Painting and drawing aren't really my things to do.. But I love to see nice artsy things made by someone else!

Cooking and baking are also my passions and one of my dreams is to publish my own recipe book some day. Or have my own café.. :)

Postcard ideas

If you need ideas, there are some postcards I like:

  • Nature, flowers, mushrooms, snow..
  • Animals (hedgehogs, owls, birds, foxes, squirrels, hamsters..)
  • Coffee, bakery
  • Snowman, snowflakes, little birds..
  • Disney, Studio Ghibli and Pokemon
  • Maps
  • Polkadot and pineapple designs
  • Black & white with colourful detail
  • Illustration more than photos
  • ..surprises :)

I would like to receive

These are in random order :)

  • postcards
  • stickers, washi tapes, nice post it's
  • any letter writing supplies: letter papers, envelopes..
  • socks (size 36 EU)
  • dark chocolate
  • candles
  • notebook/journal
  • nail polish and nail art things
  • ATC made by you
  • fridge magnets, keychains
  • ..and as I told earlier, surprises! Use your instinct and imagination :)

Comment: I just found your Christmas card from December 2017. I have NO a clue when arrived; there’s no cancellation on the envelope. But I loved the stamps and wanted to acknowledge the long over-due receipt. Happy swapping
Comment: Your cute card finally arrived, thanks!
Comment: I never got the original but I did get the resend finally. Thank you for the nice card, washi, and tea :)

Comment: You have got a really good New Year’s resolution. The hardest thing to do is to learn how to control and deal with stress and there is a lot of little techniques. The ideas you have are good so far but add one more, because we have a sense of having high expectations of ourselves and then coming down on ourselves because we didn’t meet those expectations. So each night before you go to bed write something down positive about yourself, like about yourself, and what you compost that day. And then stick it to your bathroom mirror so that when you get up the next morning you are reminded of how far you’ve came in just one day and what you like about yourself and yet you’ve got this day under control. Would love to hear how you were doing a month down the road. Good luck and I wish you full success in your goal.
Comment: thank you
