About Me

I'm 36 years old Finnish girl, who loves swapping. :) I live with my husband, our daughter (she was born 2010) and our many pets (a Brazilian terrier born in 6/2017, a guineapig, a tortoise, few lizards+frogs, many aquarium fishes, a crawfish and "stick insects").

I have two jobs. I have my own online store where I sell postcards and other paper stuff. I love it! In March 2018 I started to work as a mail(wo)man - I sort and deliver mail. I like it too! It's nice to work with letters and postcards! :)

When I have my own time, I love swapping, reading, writing letters, plannering/creating my bujo, postcrossing, paper crafting, mail art, cross stiching, crocheting, knitting, blogging, photographing, biking, gardening,...

Favorite craft things

I love all kind of pretty papers (colourful, stripes, dots, clouds, flowers,...), die cuts, washi tapes, stickers, rubber stamps, flowers and everything I can use with my mail art, card making, scrapbooking, plannering, bullet journaling etc projects. I love cross stitching+crocheting+knitting, so everything to do with those are welcome.

Favorite colours

My favourite colours are right now yellow, orange, green and turquoise. But I also like others. I love colourful things!

Favourite postcards

Postcards I would love to receive (cards could be photos or drawings):

  • animals and birds
  • cute postcards
  • colourful postcards
  • candies, chocolate, cupcakes, macarons, etc yammies
  • flowers, trees, fruits (pineapples, watermelons!!), vegetables
  • books, pens, writing, letters, letterboxes, numbers
  • Coca-cola
  • weird and funny cards
  • something you like to send

I love postcards full of writing, and cards decorated with stickers/tapes/drawings etc. Be creative if you want!

Other things I like

I love to write letters, so I love all cute and beautiful letterpapers and envelopes!

I like pocket letters, and flip books. And now my newest love is planners and bujo!

I read much, so bookmarks are always welcome.

I love candies and chocolate. I don't like coconut/coffee/vanilla flavors.

I love notebooks and all kind of pens! I'm kind of pen-holic :D

I like colourful socks. My size is European 41 - USA+Canada 9½ - UK 7.

I like lip balms (berries, fruits, cola), lip glosses and colourful nail polishs.

I love owls and frogs and foxes in any items!

Coca-Cola items are really cool too!

I like fruits/berries tea. Cherry and rasberry teas are the best!

Ruie rated for Eyes closed swap 17 on Oct 11, 2018
Response: Oct 12 - I sent a message about this rating. Haven't got any messages from Ruie before about this postcard which is lost I guess. Sometimes mail got lost and of course I resend if somebody tell me something is lost. Now I'm waiting for her address to resend a postcard, as I can't see addresses anymore on this old swaps. :( Oct 12 - I got a message+address from her and and resent the postcard.
