my name is Satu. I'm 32 years old single mother from the capital of Finland, Helsinki. My daughter Anni was born 2008 with congenital heart defect. She has undergone a big heart surgery as a baby and is almost healthy little girl now. :) Anni has a little baby brother called Aarni. Aarni was born healthy March 2014.
I'm a sahm until the end of 2015. Then i'll continue with my Master's degree, at least i hope I'll be able to do so. :) I'm a B.A in information studies, which qualifies me as a librarian. I have also studied literature, sociology, museology and art history.
Literature, history, art. Anything about these! I don't have any favourite historical event, period or so, interested in all our past. I have many favourite artists, i love for example Frida Kahlo, Hugo Simberg, Helene Schjerfbeck, Edvard Munch and Aristarkh Lentulov, but I`d love to see what you find beautiful or interesting so anything is welcome. And i love anything about books, old books, new books, bookmarks, bookstores, the smell of old or new books, libraries.. Just crazy about them. :D
Candy! (I`m allergic to nuts, also peanut, and almonds)
Russia (old Soviet propaganda, matryoshkas, icons etc)
*Anything you might describe as "nerdy". I love for example robots (Transformers), Star Wars (Darth Vader), odd/ interesting scientific facts, Marvel, DC comics (Batman!) etc.
*cartoons/ kids tv-shows from the 80s/ early 90's (Turtles, He-man etc.)
video games, old skool NES and SNES but i also love my PS4 (Divinity original sin is my current favorite)
Any propaganda items
Different languages and cultures
Alice in Wonderland
Word-associations, beautiful words, sentences, well books again.. :)
I collect magnets with my daughter, so magnets, yes please. :) We started collecting SOUVENIR MAGNETS, so if you happen to have magnet of your country or town, we would really love it.
I have a thing for moustache, so anything with moustache on it would be damn cool to receive!!
Anything somehow weird, unique and quirky. Or somehow "dark" themes. Also themes that some might find "inappropriate", well, i adore them!!
Autumn is my favourite season. I love forests and animals living there like foxes, owls, deer etc. I`m concerned for the environment and would love to save this whole planet if only i could.
I`m also interested in paganism, chakras, tarot-cards etc. I love different stones, jewellery with stones etc.
My favourite colors are warm and earthy tones like purple, green, orange. Red is my favourite. But all in all i like anything "colourful". Neoncolors are cool too. Blue isn`t really my favourite. All in all anything FULL of color is nice.
SO MANY! I absolutely love reading. I like Sylvia Plath, Margaret Atwood, John Irving, Alice Munro, Edith Södergran, Jane Austen, Italo Calvino, Hariko Murakami, Daniil Kharms, Fjodor Dostojevsky, Jeffrey Eugenides etc.
I`m always in need of new bookmarks :)
-She is also interested in how everything works and went, like human body, rainbows, historical events and such.
-She also adores LEGOs (especially Chima), Minecraft and loves to paint and draw
Mainly papercrafts, postcards, writing letters etc. So any materials for these would be nice. (postcards, blank addresslabels, scraps of beautiful paper (from storebought to used traintickets etc.), rubberstamped papers, self-made envelopes etc. I`m very easy to please..)
Lettersets and letterpads very welcome. Also notepads and loose memo sheets will receive a happy home here. :)
*Chronicle Books makes some of my favourite stationery and postcards. I also have liked everything i've seen by Roger la Borde.
No artificially scented items, PLEASE. I am allergic.
Also allergic to nuts, almonds and celery. "May contain traces" is fine.
I always send my swaps on time, IF you don't receive anything please PM me and i will gladly resend.
The mail doesn't operate in Finland on Saturday and Sunday, so if swap deadline is on weekend and i can't take it to post office on Friday before 4pm then it will be canceled on Monday.
I might send on economy class instead of priority, because it is so much cheaper. I have noted (and asked from post office) that it takes about the same amount of time for mail to travel whether it is sent priority or economy.
