I'm Milla, 25-year-old university student from Finland. I'm currently studying Pharmacy and I've also studied Biology.
On my free time I like photographing, reading good books, baking and doing DIY projects and crafts. I love spending time with my friends and family. I also love nature, spending time outdoors and traveling to new places. I'm very happy with my life right now :)
I've been a postcrossing member for 8 years already and love receiving mail.
I'd love to do private swaps so don't hesitate to ask. For private swaps I can offer Finnish things like Moomin, Marimekko, Inge LÃ¶Ã¶k, salmiakki (salty liquorice), Fazer and Panda (Finnish chocolate) and so on!
Private swap and penpal requests are always welcome! :)
â™¡ Mixed-media art. I enjoy making cards, envelopes, tags, bookmarks etc.
â™¡ Paper, card stock, kraft paper, aquarelles, pencils. I love to wrap gifts.
â™¡ Mail art, illustrations and typography.
â™¡ Stationery and small notebooks cute and minimalistic.
â™¡ Nice letter paper it's very hard to find cute ones in the shops here.
â™¡ Small rubber stamps, both homemade and store bought. Also would like rubber stamp blocks so I can carve my own stamps.
â™¡ Washi tape. Patterns I like are striped, polkadot, chevron. Vintage floral. Moomin!
â™¡ Water resistant pens and markers. Sharpies. White ink pens.
â™¡ Airmail related (stamps, stickers, envelopes, washi tape..)
â™¡ Things with vintage anatomical drawings , pharmacy / apothecary stuff or maps . â™¡ Letterpressed paper (cards, envelopes, tags..)
â™¡ Little coin purses (check the colors and patterns that I like below)
â™¡ Dessert and other recipes. Cakes, pies, cookies, breads, soups â€“ everything is welcome.
â™¡ Baking related things; cupcake toppers, sprinkles, cookie cutters etc.
â™¡ Tea towels
â™¡ Tea. My favorite is flavored black tea, but other kinds (green, white..) are fine if they have a strong flavor. I love chai, vanilla, caramel, peach and Iâ€™d love to taste new unusual flavors. I donâ€™t like plain, herbal, hip or flower flavored (rose, chamomile..) teas.
â™¡ Hot chocolate, especially with teeny tiny marshmallows.
â™¡ Sweets and chocolates from your country/area.
(If possible no Snickers, Mars, Twix, Haribo or others that you can get everywhere, Iâ€™d like to try new things that I can't just walk into a store and buy :))
