Profile updated June 13, 2018.
Other news: My beautiful baby boy is now an active and talkative toddler. He is adorable!
I'm on Summer vacation now so I hope to have some time for swapping after a LONG break.
I'm a Finnish class and music teacher. I work as a teacher at a primary school.
One of my hobbies is making cards. I began with the hobby in July 2008. Besides that I've always loved writing letters and sending postcards. Who doesn't love getting happy mail? :D
I reuse packaging and recycle anything I can. If I receive something that I have no use for I'll recycle it --> send or give it so someone who is able to put it in good use. :)
Please pay attention that I send my mail from Finland and the mail here doesn't go out (the post offices are closed) on Saturdays and Sundays. If I have marked the swap as sent on a Sat or Sun of course the letter/package will be stamped on the next Monday. However if the swap deadline is on a weekend I try to send the mail out before Friday afternoon. :)
I send a lot of my mail in economy class to save money. It is only because the economy class mail from Finland is actually quite fast after all and all the money I save on postage by doing that I can put inside the envelope/package instead. :)
Oh and PS. The value of the items is usually higher than the value I mark on the customs declaration card. ;)
I listen to all kinds of music really and my music taste and favorite bands switch very often. Lately I have been into alternative and indie, to music that is easy to listen to.
Just to list a few of my favorite bands: Muse, Florence + The Machine, The Naked and Famous, Apocalyptica (FIN), Adele, Scandinavian Music Group (FIN), Deftones, Hurts, Tool, A Perfect Circle, System of a Down, Sara (FIN).
I've studied classical music when I went to clarinet lessons and lately I've been learning to play band instruments (electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, keyboard) and it's been fun. I took singing lessons for 4 years and it's something I have improved with a lot lately. Fun fun fun! Newest addition to my instrument family is ukulele. I bought it at the beginning of July 2012.
I'm always interested in finding new bands so if you have a favorite you think I haven't heard of, send me a message with a Spotify or YouTube link and I'll check it out. :) To find new music I host a monthly "My playlist in (month + year)" -swap. Come join us!
I love swapping and I would never want to disappoint anyone. That's why I will always try my best to send swaps on time and make the swaps profile based (even if it's not required). Sometimes life happens and I might have difficulties with the deadline but in those cases I will inform my partner beforehand. I'm asking for you to do the same.
If you don't receive my swap I will resend. Just let me know and I'll fix it! :)
Please don't show or mention my whole name or my address if you're planning on uploading photos of your outgoing or incoming swaps on Instagram or Flickr or somewhere else. There is only one other person with the same first name + last name combination in the whole world so I would like to keep it private. Thank you!
Making cards (especially with stamping the image or text), knitting, crocheting.
I mostly knit socks and mittens, sometimes scarfs. I tend to get bored easily so it's quite unusual for me to finish a pair in a couple of days. At this moment I have no socks missing a pair, which is a miracle... :D
