I'm a 30 year old Finnish girl from a small town of Kokkola. I live with my twinsister Noora @paraxparaxnoia and our two cats Tora and Mini. I'm a pastry chef by profession and since my bigsister and dad have coeliacs disease most of my baking tends to be gluten free. I'm pro LGBTI++, same sex marriage and whatever comes with that! I love traveling and taking photos, music (mostly jrock but not limited to anything in particular), getting tattooed (I have some tattoos and piercings etc.), doing my nails (most girly thing I do XD), driving around in a car listening to my favorite music, watching movies and some shows, dreaming planning imaginary trips, drawing, sky and clouds, sometimes I even like cleaning :D
Apparently there's been some confusion and wondering if it's true that me and Noora are really twins and not just another double-profiler etc. so here's two pics of us since pictures speak more than 1000 words or something like that ;) I'm the redhead and Noora the blonde... I should really upload a more recent pic since we really look a lot more alike when were both blonde :D
I just added a link to my Swap-Bot board on Pinterest, it has most of the ATCs and hand made postcards I've done after joining SB, take a look if you're interested :)
I sent out my e-swaps via the Swap-Bot PM-system 95% of the time because my partner(s) can see the swap while online on SB and I can see when my partner(s) have read the PM. If I don't get rated for the swap in a decent amount of time (let's say...4-5 days) I'll most likely send another PM to remind my partner(s) to rate me, so I'm not being mean or anything, I just take my e-swaps seriously as well.
And if you're sending an e-swap my way DON'T SEND it as a pdf/zip-file, I don't open those since I got a really bad virus on my computer and had to basically wipe it clean after that :c so just attach pictures or send a long ramling email :)
If you haven't received my swap in a decent amount of time (remember I'm from Finland so that means at least 2 weeks, probably longer) please PM me before rating, I will do the same for you.
If you have to wait for my rating (I usually rate the day I get your swap) please PM me and remind me because I'm only human ;)
My love is Dir en grey, other than them I like bands like Nightmare, Mucc, Korn, Linkin Park, downy, PLASTICZOOMS, Monster Cat, amber gris, DEATHGAZE, METRONOME, kagerou, Apulanta, Sentenced, Joy Division, Royz, Rammstein, Ludovico Enauldi, kannivalism, Mozart, PLACEBO........ Just a short list for now. No one likes to read 3 A4s of bandnames they don't know!
Too many to mention!! As it's with my music, everything and nothing. Chic-flicks with my big sister, gay-themed with my best friend, everything under the sun with my twinsis :) Basically everything from Johnny Depp, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ezra Miller, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tim Burton, Gus Van Sant, Peccadillo Pictures....
Some of my favorite actors:
Outlander, Ink Master, Shameless (US) (Gallavich), Teen Wolf, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Black Sails, Vikings, Criminal Minds, American Horror Story, Sleepy Hollow, Revolution, 2 Broke Girls, Big Bang Theory, Happy Endings, Marco Polo, Hemlock Grove, Orange Is The New Black, Supernatural (Dean♡), j- and k-dramas, baking and cooking shows, history documents, documents in general, true crime and Disappeared, National Geographic......
Was really disappointed in 'Warm Bodies' by Isaac Marion though ;(
Historical fiction, history and especially WW2, post apocalyptic, dystopian, sci-fi, lgbt, ya, fantasy, horror and thriller, true crime, biographies, Torey Hayden etc.
I have a notebook waiting to be filled with quotes (any quote or a saying, it's not too picky ;)) so if you happen to have a piece of paper, a pen and a quote, scribble it on to the paper and stick it in the envelope you're maybe sending in my way (or if we're partnered on a PC swap and you don't know what to write, here's an idea ;)), I OWE YOU!
So here's a messy list of my likes. Keep in mind that everything goes together ie. cat-related postcards or turquoise starshaped stickers or recipes for chocolate macarons ;D
OH, I STARTED COLLECTING POSTCARDS WITH LIGHTHOUSES ON THEM SO I'D LOVE TO HAVE MORE OF THOSE :D
Did I mention Tilda Swinton?
And then there's everything 'Outlander'.... here's an example ;)
I'll continue when I like something else :DDD
!!PLEASE DO NOT SEND!!
Please SEND OUT YOUR POSTCARDS NAKED AND STAMPED, not in an envelope!!
When you send out your ATCs, inchies or whatevers, please make sure your envelope can handle the stuff! If it seems like the edges can't take it, please tape them before sending, nothing more tragic than getting home after a long day and finding an empty envelope on the mail ;____; makes me really sad and I bet you don't want to hear that your work is somewhere in the World without a home!
I don't collect stamps, but we have some really nice ones here in Finland so I try to pair your swap with something pretty :D I also appreciate if you use a nice one, I kinda like the Globes from the US but I know you got some sweet stamps other than those ;)))
Rant starts here --->
I've yet to start a list of people flaking me or not rating me but I'm damn close to doing so.
And PLEASE!! If you join e-swaps remember to rate. It's really not my job to message you (sometimes even a couple of times) to rate me, it's your responsibility, we're all adults here.
MY THOUGHTS ON RATING:
!! If you're going to be late, I'm fine with that AS LONG AS you PM me BEFORE the swap closes. If you're late on sending out a swap and DON'T PM ME BEFORE I wil rate a 3. The sent by-date is there for a reason and part of the swap so there is very few valid reasons for you to not send on time.
!! If you need more time to send, I'm fine with that, to an extend. What that means is that it depends on the nature of the swap, why you're running late and sometimes other things as well. !! I don't want to sound harsh, but I'm sick of people crying to me that "SB is supposed to be fun" but are late for a week without notifying me and start making excuses when I tell then I'm rating a 3... why is it supposed to be fun for you ONLY?
!! If you've somehow missed a part of the swap description and only send 1 ATC when you're supposed to send 2 (or something like that) I will give you the benefit of the doubt and hold on my rating for you to have time to send the missing thing, BUT if I see you signing up on similar swaps and completing them but you're not sending the rest of our swap to me, I'm rating a 3.
!! If you haven't been online and/or haven't marked the swap sent by the time all the rating options become available, I'm rating you a 1 without asking. It's also unlikely that I'll change my rating to higher than 3 when/if I get your swap.
I don't want to sound like a tyrant but this is supposed to be fun for everyone, not just for you when you feel like it.
I love this site but sometimes it really drives me crazy sigh
Thank you. End rant.
Nails and baking mostly, do they count? I also love looking up diy-stuff and buying stuff for them but I'm really slow to start up with them XD
Just bought a 24-color set of watercolor pencils for drawing so I'll try to learn to use them one of these days.... me? procrastinator? no........ ;)
ATCs, collages, drawing, cake decorating...........
I just recently participated on a class regarding wired gum paste flowers and my hands are itching to try making different kinds now :D
I thought it'd be time to compile a weird little list of things I'd love to have but can't really get here in Finland. This is definately not a shopping list and I'll give hearts even if you don't send someting from this, but you'll have my eternal gratitude if you manage to find something from below bows deeply
