Hi, I'm Sanna, I'm from South East Finland. I'm a mother for two lovely little girls. I'm also engineer, but currently studying economics/accounting. I love mail, and mail related things. Letters, reading, some crafts. Usually I participate in tea and profile swaps. I like private swaps, so if you are interested, please pm me! :). I can send you for example Moomin items, Finnish chocolates, teas, etc.
Hand made items are more than fine! It's always great to see lovely things some one has created by own hands. And I do appreciate the time you put for hand made things.
You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.

Teas I like:
♥ flavored black teas, also decaf black tea
♥ flavored rooibos (bagged would be super!)
♥ flavored honeybush
My favourite flavours are orange, strawberry and rose. I like also a lot of bergamot, chocolate, red currant, cranberry, raspberry, vanilla and other flower / berry / fruit flavours.
I have an easy access for Nordqvist, Lipton and Twinings, so everything else would be a very nice surprise! (If those are what you have, that's ok too. Keisarin morsian is one of my favourites. :))
Teas and flavours I do not like:
* chai or spicy teas, anis, ginger, liquorice
* herbal infusions especially with lemongrass or hibiscus
Please only invidually wrapped teabags.
If possible, please do not tape the teabags onto cards. Thank you. I'll send the wrappings to someone, who collects them.

I don't have use for them or like them. I'm not so much into items without any function.
I think that the idea in swapping is to make someone happy, and send something special, when possible. I read your profile even when it's "sender's choise" swap. I try to send something you like. I don't understand what is the idea of sending something, which doesn't even have a chance to make the other person glad of receiving it. Also, when possible, I try to send something even a bit local. Of course it's not always possible to find something special, - also I live in a rather small town. Don't get me wrong; I love swapping, I am not picky, and I do love surprises! :) I just wish that we'd have a thought when choosing something, and that we wouldn't waste postage.
As our high postages are now even higher, I decided to use mainly economy class mail. This means that you need to wait your swap a bit longer. Travelling time inside Europe is about two weeks, to USA/Canada/Asia approximately from two to three weeks (for letters).
For packages from overseas / outside of EU: Please fill the customs form and mark items as "gift". It's very important, that you mark the total value as low as you can. - If the value is more than 26 $, I have to pay at least 24 % of total value and pick up the package from customs. Also I'll try mark the item value as low as possible (so please notice that the swap items have cost more than the form informs!) Thank you very much in advance.
I do not give hearts for extras. I give hearts for swaps that seem to be sent with heart. :) I hope that also you will rate me so.
Please don't mention my whole name in web, if you publish photos of swaps, etc. Thank you.
I reuse packaging and wrappings when it's possible.
I mark swaps as sent when I drop them to mail box / post office. Please notice that post office may not empty the mailbox on that day anymore and also that they stamp mail only on Mon-Fri, so the stamp may be from different day.
I´ll rate swaps as soon as possible when I have received them. And I promise to rate. I hope that also you will rate my swaps and will let me know if my swap/tag doesn´t reach you in reasonable time, or if it wasn´t what it should have been - so that I can send you a new one. Please PM me before rating 1, if you haven´t received my swap! Thank you.
If you are sending late, please contact me. Without communicating you will most likely be rated as 3. I do understand that there is life outside of swap-bot, but I do not understand negligence. My opinion is, that joining for a swap is making a promise.
