News! I am taking a break from swap-bot. But feel free to send me any messages.
My name is Riikka and I am a 24 year old girl from Finland. I recently graduated from art school and now I am a painter/postal service worker. I live with my dear boyfriend in Helsinki. I'm here to share creativity with people around the world.
Please have a closer look at my profile if you are wondering about what I like and what to send me. Click the links above if you want to see what I make and a small list of my Etsy faves. Don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.
Indie and singer-songwriter stuff. Electronic, instrumental and progressive rock! Music that is eclectic. Please give me recommendations. My long-time favorite band is Rilo Kiley.
Beck, Bill Callahan, Kaki King, Battles, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Lady Gaga, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, David Bowie, PJ Harvey, Elliott Smith, Joy Division and Animal Collective. Tuomas Skopa, Sydän, sydän, Taipuva Luotisuora and Päät.
I've watched every episode of Prisoner, The Wire, Arrested Development, House, Dexter, True Blood, Six Feet Under, The Office (UK), Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Monk and Ugly Betty. I also like The Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park. The reality show geek in me loves the Next Top Model shows and Project Runway..
I am currently watching the new episodes of Dr. Who with my boyfriend (who has watched it plenty more than I have). :)
I'm only thinking about putting together a movie list because it's a bit difficult.. I love love watching movies! I would like to say that genre has nothing to do with it but the ones I really like are movies that have some element of darkness, fantasy or sci-fi in them. For example, Donnie Darko, Back to the Future and anything by Darren Aronofsky.
Please don't limit yourself to these and feel free to ask if you're not sure! :-) Communication is good, though I do like surprises. I love handmade things and I accept things from thrift stores or used things, as long as they are in good condition.
I also accept happily any other postcards and stationary, especially kawaii stationary and such.
I always rate you if I have received your swap! And I will message you before rating a 1 or 3. I expect the same from you. Please contact me if I forget to rate for some reason! Or worse; if I forget to send! That hasn't happened yet though.
If you are waiting for an international package from me, please give it at least a couple of weeks! Sometimes they have taken over a month to arrive from Finland.
