About Me

Hi! I'm a 26 yo office worker from Finland, currently studying my second degree in university and working full time! In my free time I like to write letters, do papercrafts, decorate my planner, read and watch Netflix. I love Japanese idols, k-pop and c-pop (though I still know very little about Chinese music outside of the few shows I've seen!). I mostly read mystery novels, I like old-fashioned and classic mysteries and historical novels when they aren't too serious - I don't need realism, a more romantic angle works well for me.

My favorite jpop groups are Hinatazaka46, BEYOOOOONDS, Johnny's groups and Sakurazaka46. Kpop favorites, even though I'm not as big of a fan as I used to be, are fromis_9, BTS, Weki Meki, and IN2IT. From cpop I only know/like INTO1, Nine Percent and Rocket Girls.

My literature favorites are Swedish mystery novels - The Millenium Thrilogy is my all time favorite book (series), Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, and a random collection of other books, such as Q & A by Vikas Swarup, Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath and Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I'm somewhat active on Goodreads, my username there is siinasbooks. Feel free to add me as a friend!

I looooove sweets and junk food (trying to balance it out by doing sports and eating healthy most of the time...) I also love baking!

Favorite Crafts

At the moment I mostly decorate my planner - I used it for both keeping up with daily tasks and some slight memory planning.

I crochet and knit, I'm currently crocheting a quilt. It's the second one I've made, I love crocheting granny squares :)

Mail art and paper crafts of all kind: flipbooks, pocket letters, hoop mail...

Things I like

Things I like to receive, swap or buy for myself:

  • stickers and washi - I use these both in my planner and in mail art
  • any planner accessories - as I said, I decorate my planner, so planner related stuff is most welcome!
  • die cuts
  • scrapbooking paper - scraps as well as bigger pieces
  • enamel dots, brads, dimensional stickers like diamonds etc
  • note pad sheets and small cards for writing notes to go with my swaps
  • Japanese stationery, stickers, washi... I love everything cute, stuff from Daiso, Seria and Can Do, as well as Mind Wave, MT, Mastรฉ, Bande... Pretty much everything haha
  • Characters I like: Snoopy and Peanuts, Sumikko Gurashi, Rilakkuma, Moomin, Ghibli films' characters (especially Jiji, Cat Bus and Totoro), pretty much all cute Japanese characters except for Hello Kitty
  • sequin mixes or sequins in general - I love adding shaker pockets or cards to my crafts but for some reason making sequin mixes is super hard for me D: so if you have a spare one or like making them I'd be super duper grateful!
  • postcards; I love art postcards most, like postcards with pictures of artwork, but also like other illustrated cards and in general just stuff that is pretty; I prefer getting my postcards naked with a pretty stamp, unless the swap calls for something else, of course. I don't collect stamps or anything but I enjoy looking at them and seeing what kind of stamps other countries have :D

Themes and styles I like:

  • Japanese style stuff, both cutesy and the more traditional stuff
  • Maggie Holmes
  • Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's day
  • seasonal things
  • favorite colors are baby pink, yellow and pastel colors in general, though I do like bright colours too
  • retro/vintage style Disney characters, especially aliens from toy story)
  • animals and nature
  • houses, cities, trains, bicycles...
  • humans, especially in stickers (love the styles of La Dolce Vita, Pion, Meowmeowstar etc)
  • all big planner brands (MAMBI, Heidi Swapp, Prima, Recollections...)

Things I don't like

Stuff I don't like:

  • Vintage style
  • supplies targeted at children (like stickers with characters from kids' cartoons etc, unless mentioned on my things I like list)
  • icons, as in Planner stickers that are just very simplistic pictures of garbage cans, utensils, cars etc.
  • sticky notes/post-its
  • getting money in swaps; if any way possible please don't send me any currency! I simply don't know what to do with that stuff (besides the obvious of course)

Drinks and food

I love hot chocolate! I don't drink coffee and I've only recently started to drink tea. I don't really care for white tea, but I love fruity teas, mint tea and green tea, especially Japanese green tea. Other Japanese teas are also great, as I first started to drink tea in Japan :)

I don't have any allergies but don't care for stuff that tastes like alcohol (like chocolates with alcohol filling) or plain dark chocolate - it's fine if it's mixed with some other flavors like mint or nuts though!

I love, love, love chocolate! All kinds of chocolate, it can be plain or filled with something or mixed with fruit or nuts... I also like sweets, soft ones more than hard ones, but almost anything goes, really :) Salty/savory snacks are cool too, but if I had to choose I'd definitely pick sweet!

Risna rated for โญ FULL ENVELOPE #39 โญ on Aug 27, 2021
Comment: This is hands down the best full envelope I could have imagined! Not only did I get a face sheet mask and Lakritsi from Finland, one of them a special Moomin edition, but I also got Jonathan Van Ness' bestselling book OVER THE TOP! And this is exactly what you did, Siina, you went over the top... in the best possible way! This swap didn't just make my day... it made my summer. Can't wait to start reading! Sending love to Finland. You are the BEST!!!!
