About Me

Hello reader,

Great to get swapping — So far my journey with swapping has been fantastic. Here is something about me to get better acquainted.

Before joining Swap-bot, I've been involved with international pen friends for several years and most recently, with postcrossing reaching 100 send postcards. I've saved all letters and postcards sent to me as I semi-collect postcards and stamps. I sometimes do buy used or unused vintage postcards, mostly for their historic value but also as I find vintage stationery charming.

I'm a graphic designer and an illustrator, but am not jammed with a specific style of interpretation. From me, you might get something store bought or illustrated by me. I am a member in a collective of other designers. For this reason, I have a collection of illustration by other illustrators from Finland.

I appreciate all that is current or vintage. I'd characterize myself as a visual person, to whom esthetic is most important - over subject.

I consume culture in various forms. For this reason, there are many categories of swapping of interest to me.

Any subject you send me will be appreciated on it's own, regardless of my own interests.

Collecting

Pez dispensers (Princesses, The Simpsons)

Canvas tote bags

Lego minifigurines

Stationery

Postcards (Birds, Figure Skating, Space, National Costumes)

Postage Stamps (Figure Skating, Space, National Costumes)

Motives

Merry-Go-Rounds

Figure Skating

Nature

Supernatural

Mythical

Folktale

History

Politics

National costumes

USA

Honorable swappers from the United States, if possible — can you use the seasonal postage stamps, when sending swaps. I would really appreciate the gesture as I enjoy these stamps.

Comment: I don't have a record of this swap coming in, but I'm rating you a 5 because you listed that you had sent it. It must have gotten lost. If it does come later, I will notify you.
Response: This is very unfortunate! I appreciate you taking time to let me know - it surely is in the mail, as I sent it, as well as informed you of that action. I will resend, if it will not reach you.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful cards. Love the paper, the stamps and packaging. The envelope was very pretty and of course the Finland stamps are so much fun. I loved everything! I hope that you are staying safe and healthy. Thanks again. It was a fun swap.
Response: Thank you for the uplifting feedback - you made my day! It does make me happy to please somebody else, though swapping itself delights me on its own to begin with. I wish you all the best, stay healthy!
