โš ๏ธ๐Ÿšจ SWAP HOSTS AND PARTNERS: PLEASE READ THE BOLDED PARAGRAPHS BELOW. ๐Ÿšจโš ๏ธ

Due to Satan, the Finnish postal service has a list of countries where I can send my shit. The post office will not accept any mail to countries OUTSIDE OF THIS LIST. Not even if I yell at the post office lady. If I just drop my mail in the outgoing mailbox, IT WON'T GO ANYWHERE as long as the country is not on the list. It's not up to me so don't be a crab ass about it. ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ€

The list is the following [updated on 7.8.2020]: Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UK, Ukraine, USA, Vietnam.

I do try to avoid swaps in which it's likely that my partner is from a no-no country, but sometimes shit happens and the list changes suddenly.

Hiya. I'm Neea. I'm a 30-year-old les๐Ÿan, a Sagittarius, single as heck and about to catladify myself. The only thing I'm missing are the cats.

Some of my endless number of hobbies and interests are snail mail, drawing and painting, all kinds of crafts from embroidery to woodworking, reading, writing, enjoying nature, traveling abroad and learning about different cultures and learning languages.

I'm currently learning Korean while trying not to forget my Latvian. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

  • A Place Called Winter

  • The Picture of Dorian Gray
  • Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
  • The Song of Achilles

  • Anna Karenina
  • Atonement
  • The Court Dancer

  • Gone With The Wind
  • Little Women
  • Memoirs of a Geisha
  • Pachinko
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • The Prisoner of Zenda
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Shanghai Girls
  • The Unknown Soldier
  • idk I like romance and drama
  • anything that's gay or has gay subtext lmao

NONFICTION:

I love a good (auto)biography or a memoir. Historical stuff. Books about foreign cultures and languages are great. Anything about traveling. Anything that teaches me how to make things.

POETRY:

I like it. I write some. Do share you favourites with me!

I like making things that I can use, whether it's woodworking or pottery. I made a ton of wooden spoons and other kitchen tools in a women's woodworking class, and all kinds of pots and things in a pottery class a few years ago. I always like to try new things, even if I don't end up loving it. Lately I've been thinking about trying paper making and then using that home made paper in various crafts.

Recently I bought my first ever sewing machine and I'm eager to learn how to sew clothes I'm not too embarrassed to wear in public. :D I also really want to start weaving! You know, tapestries and stuff. I'm also somewhat interested in learning embroidery and other needle-and-thread things (so far I only know how to fix minor things, like replacing missing buttons, sewing patches on clothes and the like). Maybe I'll finally learn how to knit and crochet one day!

I've started practicing digital art on a drawing tablet, and I'm slowly getting used to it. It definitely has its advantages compared to traditional art!

Snail mail supplies: letter sets, letter paper, envelopes, postcards, address labels, envelope seal stickers...

Gel and glitter pens in fun colours!

Roses, floral print stuff, pressed flowers (harebells are my favourite!)

Glitter, sequins, sparkly things, holo everything!

Stickers of all shapes and sizes!

Washi tape!

Glanzbilder or kiiltokuvat or whatever those are in English. These are not the same as whatever people call "die cuts" though. I think googling "Victorian scrapbooking" will give you the right idea.

Patterned craft paper, origami paper, book pages and pretty much anything I can use in paper crafts. Even things like newspapers in different languages! ๐Ÿ“ฐ

ATCs for my (so far pretty small) collection! โœจ

Rubber stamps, clear stamps, stamped pieces of paper.

Surrealism and impressionism are some of my favourite art styles. Also female portraits in any style.

The art of Tove Jansson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Artemisia Gentileschi, Janis Rozentฤls, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Claude Monet, Rudolf Koivu, Akseli Gallen-Kallela...

Feminist art, zines and literature. Please see my "things I don't like" for this bit though!

Zines in general! Tiny ones, big ones, black and white, full colour, photocopied, fancy printed ones...

Sewing supplies! Leftover fabric, fun buttons, zippers, ribbon, sewing patterns... all sorts of things! :D

ALLERGIES & DISLIKES:

I'm not deathly allergic to anything, but I'm not good with dairy (even if it's lactose free).

Hate is a strong word, but it's still not strong enough to accurately describe how much I flipping hate passion fruit.

I really don't like sour candies.

TEA:

Some flavours I really really like: anything chai, spicy teas, coconut, chocolate/coffee, apple pie, cinnamon apple, cinnamon, cardamom, Christmas-y flavour combinations, honey, caramel, caramelised pear/apple/etc, Turkish apple, vanilla, orange, cherry, blueberry muffin/pie, strawberries, cherry, blackcurrant and other berries... everything yummy.

Some tea brands I like: TAZO, Pickwick, Bigelow, Pukka, Clipper...

Tea flavours I avoid: non-flavoured green tea, hibiscus, rosehip, chamomille, passion fruit

CANDY:

I like chocolate of all sorts! I especially like chocolate with nuts, peanut butter, salted caramel, coconut, mint, matcha, liquorice, dried fruit etc in it! If you send me Laima chocolate I will love you five-ever.

Those yummy nougat and nut bars! Any vegan snacks in general. I don't care if it's got honey in it, though, so I personally classify those honey nut bars as vegan snacks.

Liquorice, liquorice dragees, salmiakki and pretty much any kind of candy. Strawberry, cherry, pineapple... all sorts of fruity flavours. Haribo Peach candies are some of my favourites! ๐Ÿ‘

Anything coffee flavoured is A+++

Contemplating the inevitability of death.

People who misspell my name, or people who straight up give me a new name because they've never seen it before so clearly it can't be a real name. เฒ _เฒ  No, my name is not Neena, Neera, Negra, Neaa, Nea, Nena, Naea, Naenae, Nee or Nae. If you're literate enough to navigate this website, I expect you to be able to write four letters in the order they're supposed to be written in.

The general concept and existence of men.

Bullet journal stuff.

Halloween. Pumpkins. Horror.

Those moustache graphics that were everywhere a couple of years ago. I get an allergic reaction in my eyeballs every time I see them.

MINIONS. Get those yellow demons away from me.

Most geek stuff, such as video games, male superheroes, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Stranger Things and so on. I don't mind female superheroes.

I'm a feminist but I have no use for embarrassing "Smash the patriarchy!! [picture of a fist with manicured nails]" or "Feminism is for everyone!" or "Feminists are cool!" or "Blarhgf blahrgrg the radical notion that women blahblaghfhgd" stickers and such. Actual feminist art and yonic imagery is fine (as long as it's made by women!!). Think second wave. Think Guerrilla Girls, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pussy Riot and all the unladylike screeching hags that men love to hate. I love rocking the boat - or, more accurately, hijacking the ship, killing the captain, throwing his crew into the ocean, freeing their hostages and abandoning ship (and then sinking it or setting it on fire). I'm an ugly hairy dyke who has no patience for fun, quirky and non-threatening "hobby feminism" that includes and/or coddles men, and my activism reflects that.

Homophobes can also heck right off. ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿป

If you call me q***r I will consider it hate speech and report you. Don't send me stuff with that word in/on it.

I always send my swaps on time, and I mark them as "Sent" on the day I've paid for them and left them in the outgoing mail box. However, there is no actual post office in my town. I pay for and leave my mail in a corner shop which does nearly everything that a post office normally would - except canceling stamps. This will get done in a mail sorting center in another city. Therefore, whatever I send will NOT be stamped until a few days later, if even then, or at all! This is 100% out of my control, and if you give me a lousy rating for something as stupid as that, then, uhh. Congrats on being petty, I guess?

Similarly, giving me a 1 when I haven't had the chance to offer to resend the swap says more about you than it says about me.

Thank you for the extra teas with your roommate's swap :)

Hi, Neea - your ATC (with 2 ATC blanks decorated in the same way) have arrived for the ATCA WTA in April! Thanks - very nice (glad you told me how you made them, too - that's always helpful, when you decorate with more than one or two mediums. Oh, and, no, the world isn't ending! haha

shirleyinCA on Sep 22, 2019:

I just wanted to add a thank you for the classy handmade envelope for the Mega Sticker swap. All those rows of washi tape, the Hello Kitty address label and one thin pink strip of washi to match it and accent the black and white envelope! Then lovely postage as always.

Nuisant on Aug 18, 2019:

Thank you so much for the lovely tea from the #Tea for Thee swap! I loved all of the flavours you sent me and they were wrapped so beautifully!

I always smile when I read this in your profile Contemplating the inevitability of death.! At your age, I had the same 'dislike' and it's not that now I like it but you'll see you just get used to it (and I know you could say, never but I did say the same at your age too ;-))..

khronicole on Dec 15, 2018:

I must say that I enjoyed reading your dislike section so much. I could so related to most of them lol, you phased them so precisely it made me smile. Oh and I never expected to see Utena listed on someone's Swapbot profile(you know it's not an anime site) I love that show, actually I love almost everything by Ikuhara. Ok that's enough randomness for now, have a nice day :)
