my name is Satu. I'm 33 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 brother called Aarni. Aarni was born healthy March 2014.
I study sociology at the University of Helsinki. I am beginning my Master's thesis this autumn. I'm also 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 of 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. Can't eat wheat either.)
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!)
*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
Word-associations, beautiful words, sentences, well books again.. :)
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.
Mermaids, unicorns and such
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 :)
I recently got into this plannering thing. I have Happy Planner classic and Leuchtturm 1917 as a bullet journal. I am also concidering buying myself a traveler's notebook.
I like all kinds of planner stickers, washi etc.
Just began making my own tn inserts before even bying the covers. :)
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..)
Fell in love with junk journals recently! Also making TN inserts junk journal style. Any material for these is very welcome. :)
I love, love, love old childern's book illustrations and also vintage pics of animals, plants, people and such. I use them in my mail art and junk journals.
-I enjoy die cuts and all kinds of ephemera.
-I like project life cards a lot. I use them in my snail mail and journals.
-Reset girl is lovely.
-Anything by Graphic 45 i adore.
No artificially scented items, PLEASE. I am allergic.
Also allergic to nuts, almonds and wheat. "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.
Lately (in 2017) mail service in Finland has been having some issues. Mail travels a lot slower than it used to. So please be patient if you are waiting for mail or a rating! Thank you. ❤️
