About Me

My name is Helinä (yes it is 'ä'; an 'a' with two dots) and I am 26 years old. I live with Nuppu, she is 10 years old cat. I have raised at a country side and now I am living in a city called Tampere. It is the most populous inland city in any of the Nordic countries (in Europe).

I have had type 1 diabetes for 16 years now and I am carrying insulin pump all the time. And yes, I can eat sugar.. ;)

Geocaching is one of my hobbies. Hunting geocaches is a little adventure for me and also when you are walking for four hours you get some exercise. Knitting and crotheting has been my hobbies since I was seven years old. My grandmother thaught me to crochet. While ago I bought a sewing machine from one lady. It is simple machine as it could be - it sews straight line and zikzak. But I am going to try to make skirts and other clothes :) Sometimes I like to read books (when I can focus enough for reading). Also I like to paint with acrylics. Oil paints are my favorite.

Surely my text is full of typos, but don`t let it bother you! I am still learning this language ;)

Colours

Colours are absolutely important to me. I think my brains needs some colour therapy everyday. Still I am not like a walking rainbow, I prefer dark clothes with something bright. Right now I am attracted of rose pattern at my clothes.

My favorite colours are dark purple and pink. Other colours I also like is orange, yellow, wine, dark blue, turquoise. I think the balance is the most important thing with mixing colours.

About food

I have no allergies.

CHOCOLATE. I am not allergy for nuts, but I do not enjoy the combination of chocolate and nuts. Jellies and marmalades are dislikes too. And chocolate which contains alcohol - ugh.

Fruit bars.

I prefer green and herbal teas but you can also send me black tea - a friend of mine drinks only black tea and I don`t have it :D I do not like chamomille or hibiscus. At tea swaps I pick up special or unordinary flavours - I will not send basic Liptons etc. Hope you will do the same ;)

Sometimes I drink coffee or hot chocolate. Earlier I drank coffee like three-four cups per day - my body didn`t like this habit and I had to stop drinking coffee and changed to tea.

Favorite Television

Outlander ♥ also as the books

Random things I like

  • Butterflies
  • Cats, frogs, Saimaa ringed seal, birds, ladybugs
  • Postcards: colourful, childish, old, black & white (and many many more - case-by-case u know)
  • Buttons
  • Crocheted things
  • Red & White Polka Dot
  • Lace/doilies
  • Stories and chatting crap
  • Flowers
  • Fairy Tales

About Swaps

I really love to do suprises and love to receive suprises :)

If you want something specific from Finland please contact me. For example there are Moomin, Angry Birds, different liquorices, wonderful chocolates. Or if You have anything to ask, feel free and ask! I don`t bite :D

I would LOVE and will appreciate if you may tell something about your life or funny details from your country. Notes only with swap`s title and your name is a little bit.. boring.... Be special ♥

Comment: Thank you very much for the tea you sent me, I will enjoy them without a doubt, like the samples of lotions, I love the creams and lotions ... and most of all, I loved your letter, I like to know about people's lives and to imagine a little piece of your day ... while you jogging with cold, I sweat jogging with 27 °C in the morning (now there is 34 ° C, and we are only in spring) ... Greetings from the South of the World!

Comment: Moikka! KIITOS pääsiäiskortistasi!! :) Ja anteeksi, että olet joutunut ihmettelemään korttisi perillepääsyä. Siis tämä saapui minulle viime perjantaina (17. pv!) siinä postin uuden mainoslapun välissä :D Leimattu tämä on jo 30.3. eli on tainnut postilla mennä pasmat sekaisin pääsiäiskorttien kanssa tänä vuonna. Sinun korttisi lisäksi mainoslärpäkkeen välissä oli myös toinen tämän ryhmän kortti ja 11 muuta korttia! :D Ja siis tämä Tom of Finland merkkihän on aivan mahtava!!! ;) Fiilistelen täällä nyt pääsiäistä vähän jälkikäteen :P
Response: Moi! Siis voi hyvänen aika, mitä ihmettä se Posti on sekoillut :O ihan uskomatonta. Mutta niin kuin sanonta kuuluu: parempi myöhään kun ei milloinkaan :)

Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter and postcard. The story of your bag is really funny ^^ Die Toten Hosen is a band from Dusseldorf. Not really my kind of music as well, but they have some good songs too.

Comment: Thank you for the Finland PC - I am giving you a heart for the postage stamp - ooh la la, I don't know about Tom, but that looks like quite the stamp! I agree - the top of the library does seem more of a UFO, but of course, I am not looking from above. :) I hope you are well and that you are having a great day!

Hello! I enjoyed reading your profile. I think we enjoy many things in common: sewing, making cards, and most importantly, CHOCOLATE! <3

I think you are doing well with your writing in English. It is far better than my Finnish (which is none!) Happy swapping!
