Hi, I'm 30-something lady from Finland. I'm a philology/linguistics/education student at university and live in my lovely flat with my chihuahua puppy (born Jan 2016). No bf/gf and happy with my situation, I love being independent and doing things on my own way. Check my Instagram if you want to see my every day life!
I'm a scout, nerdfighter, lushie, ravenclaw and a pop culture junkie. I love to travel and I have already about 25 countries on my visited list.
Wish I had more time for crafting, but these are the things I do:
- I smashbook (It's like scrapbooking, but less serious and planned!).
- I am getting into planner stuff: I have a Simple Stories Carpe Diem planner for actual planning and a Bando planner for memory keeping. - I like to knit small things: mittens, socks and such. - Sometimes I sew. My sewing machine is a bit sad, because I don't use it enough.
If you have not received my swap, please, contact me before rating :) I always send out my swaps and contact my partner if I'm late for some reason.
Colourful and special stamps on my mail always make me smile. If possible, please please, use a scout stamp :)
I prefer getting postcards naked (no envelope) and fully written (tell what you've been doing lately, tell a story/thoughts about the postcard, anything!) I don't like multipicture post cards.
I understand English, Swedish, Finnish (my native language), German and some Danish & Norwegian.
It's nice if you write a note with the swap and maybe tell something about the things you are sending to me (what they are, why you picked them, where did you get them etc.). Or tell about your day. Or write a nice quote. "Hello, here is your stuff, hope you like it" is boring.
My favourite colours are all shades of petrol/teal/turquoise/robin's egg. I also like greys, blues and chocolate brown. Pink and lime green are great effect colours, but I don't like them in large amounts. Kraft, silver and glittery things are beautiful. (Forget all this when you are choosing washitape for me: all colours are very welcome! I tend to buy my fave colours, so variation is good. Send any colours!)
I love everything that has something to do with fleur de lis, chihuahuas, stars, snowflakes, fairies, Russian nesting dolls (matryoshka), rainbows, LGBT pride or crowns :)
Yummy flavours: mint, fudge/caramel, sweet cinnamon (not hot cinnamon), mango, (green) apple, cherry, mint chocolate, coconut, garlic, black pepper.
My favourite animal is giraffe and I like guinea pigs, foxes, hedgehogs, owls, penguins, pandas and black cats too. Chihuahuas and pugs are my favourite dogs. Anything with BADGERS is awesome, I have a friend who collects them and they're quite hard to find here.
Tea: I prefer flavoured black tea and rooibos. Fruity ones are my favourite. I don't like chamomile or green tea. Please check that the teas don't have licorice root in them, I am allergic to it.
I love Christmas!
I adore orchids!
