About Me

I'm a 40 years old girl, refuse to call myself a woman (that sounds so old lol). I live in a small place, close to the coast. And got a great view to the sea, mountains and the nature. Love living close to the nature, and wouldn't trade that away.

I'm not really a girly girl. In other words i don't wear make up, use jewlery (in a rare case i can use bracelets. And i'm really not a fashion type of person either, i use whatever i like and feel comfortable in. Refuse to follow the fashion stream lol.

I love animals, well most of them. I really don't like spiders, mice, rats or snakes. My favourite animals are cats and dogs. At the moment i don't have any cats or dogs. But want to have either a cat or dog again, someday in the future.

Love swapping and penpalling. Though the only thing i don't like are the postage prices. It keeps going up every year. And with the silly price it is now, it makes it sometimes harder to do all the swaps want to do (like heavy swapping). So sometimes need to limit on the large swaps, and rather do smaller and cheaper swaps (like atc's and postcards type of swaps). It's us who is active within the penpalling and swapping world that needs to pay for it, when price goes up, only because less people sending mail compared to before. But what about us who still sends mail? Go figure, oh well. I'm not planning on stop penpalling or swapping anytime soon. Love this hobby. I've been penpalling for about 27 years now or so, and still enjoy to write and recieve letters.

Hobbies. I could make a long list or short list. Depends on what to include. And sometimes i don't get the time for even half of my hobbies, due to lack of time, life get's in the way now and then. Anyway. Penpalling, swapping, travelling, nature, photography, listen to music, watch tv and movies, geocaching, crafting, scrapbooking, reading books, and much more.

I would need to win big in the lottery one day, so i could travel to all the places i want to visit. At the moment i have only been to places within my own country, and twice to Sweden. Still, there are lots of places and countries i want to visit, hopefully one day. One way to combine travelling, is to do geocaching, you get to see new places, but also to find some geocaches. For thoose of you who don't know what geocaching is, check it out at: geocaching
If you got any questions about geocaching, feel free to pm me, or leave a comment on my profile, and i will answer the best i can. Always fun to meet other geocachers, but also to help out new ones into this fun hobby.


Lots of links, and i couldn't fit all of them above, so i'm listing a complete list over all of the links i got. There are two amazon wishlist, but one of the wishlist is for us amazon, and the other one is for the uk amazon wishlist.

Fave Movies/Television/Dvd

I enjoy to watch tv and movies. Though the last couple of months not been able to see much compared to what i used to see before, due to work. And i miss some of the good tv shows that used to be on tv, but they stopped making new seasons of it. I enjoy comedy, action, crime / mystery, documentary movies. The same goes for tv programs. Too many good movies and tv shows. So i am just gonna mention only some few of the ones that i like: police academy, smokey and the bandit, home alone. Tv shows: walker texas ranger, csi, home and away, murder she wrote, columbo...

I collect both dvds and blu ray dvds. Both of them needs to be region code 2 for Europe, since dvd/blu ray player can only handle that region code. Also i would prefer that the blu ray / dvds has english spoken language, and also got the option for Norwegian subtitles.

Wishlist for blu ray / dvds:

  • American Anthem
  • I'll fly away (tv show)
  • Salsa
  • Disney movies


I collect postcards from all over the world, and in standard size of an postcard 4x6 inches (15x10,5 cm). I collect blank postcards, meaning new unwritten ones, and sent inside of an envelope.
At the moment i got 1500 postcards. And i have set a goal (a bit too optimistic i think lol) to hopefully reach 10,000 postcards by 1st of January 2020. So if you want to help out, just send a pm. And we can do a trade, and i can send you something else in return.bb

I love candy and chocolate, who don't? lol.
Though there are lots of candy and chocolate in other countries that i can't get hold of here in Norway. So if doing a candy or chocolate swap, if possible could you send something that's not international (candy/chocolate that's sold in all countries), but rather candy or chocolate that you can get in your country, but not in Norway? Thanks, if not that's okay.
Think i'll start with the dislike list first, since that's one the shortest. Though it won't be the end of the world if you send something from my dislike like, but since i don't like them i won't be able to eat them myself, but give it it someone i know who likes them.

Crafting and scrapbooking. I sometimes see my myself as a beginner in scrapbooking and in some craft related things. But i still enjoy to do craft projects. In scrapbooking, i got way to many scrapbooking albums projects that i want to finish, but not enough time to get everything done at once. Things takes time.

Crafting. I sometimes knit, mainly something easy as socks, but better than nothing lol. I also do atcs (artist trading cards).
But i want to try out quilting, but need to get a better sewing machine first. I also want to try out junk/art journals, make tags / bookmarks, etc.
I`ve seen a few youtube videos, which gives good ideas. Now if i can manage to sit down, and actually start with trying out a journal.


Though there aren't that many things i dislike, but there are some few things that i don't like, and can't have. Due to that i have migraine i react to certain type of smells like perfume etc.

Dislike list:

  • Alcohol
  • Ad cards
  • Coffee
  • Cinnamon
  • Hip tea
  • Jewelry (I hardly use any, so no point on sending it, since i won't be using it)
  • Liquer candy, food, items
  • Make up
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Religious items
  • Strong smells (like perfume, etc)
  • Snakes
  • Spiders

Important info

When sending a package to Norway. It's important to add a custome declaration sticker, and fill it out right. There you tell what is in the package, and it's value. If the value is to high (above 28 us dollars), then i have to pay taxes, if it's not marked properly as a gift.
And if there is no custome declaration, someone will open the package, and sort through it to see if i have to pay for it. As you can imagine this would be no fun.

Also, i got migraine, so please don't send anything with strong smell or scent, as this can trigger my migraine, and i get sick.

If i sometime get an item, that for some reason i don't need or collect, then i will send it to someone else. Don't take this the wrong way, but we all now and then get an item or two that we don't need. And i think it's better to give it a new home, instead of just throw it away. If you for some reason feel like passing on an item you get from me to someone else, that's fine with me. Also when coming to prices, when living in Norway, things costs. So if an item costs for example $2 in one country, it can cost 4-5 times as much here in Norway.
