About Me

!! please note swappers outside of EU, when sending more than a card/letter etc.: please fill the customs form CN22 and write "no value". (That doesn't mean I don't appreciate your work)

Favorite Books

I read nearly anything that is written nicely and clearly. Not a big fan of horror books any more, though.

I am always looking for new authors whose books to read.

I normally don´t like novels where the story jumps back and forward in the time as I have really hard time following it then :D.

Favorite Movies

Here again I like movies based on real life, true stories, but also enjoy comedies. I don't watch much films, as I loose interest very quickly, if there's something boring.

Favorite Television

I only watch television while doing something else, so it must be easy watching or very interesting documentaries.

Almost every time I watch TV, I knit something, it helps me to focus on the program.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, rubber stamping, card making, sewing and some crocheting and lino cutting.

I don´t :( like

  • skulls, bones, skeletons -themed things
  • sticky notes (as these often doesn't even stick :D)
  • grapefruit
  • cosmetic face masks
  • teacher's stickers (saying "good job" etc.) or very childlish stickers
  • cherries in chocolate
  • very seasonal die cuts, like Easter, Halloween etc. (Christmas in small amounts is fine :))

Favorite colours

  • turquoise
  • greyish blue
  • also pastels, soft vintage colours
  • yellows, greens
  • but in your craft to me, please feel free to use what colours you like to use
  • and I think all colours have some tone of it, that I like!

Note Please

Please note that the mail from Finland takes normally around one week, but sometimes up to two or even four weeks to travel internationally.

I click the "sent" button when I already sent my swap and don't have it in my hands anymore. So the date does not always match (and is often one day later than the actual sending date).

I am easily pleased :) I don't expect the swaps be directly from my likes only as I am interested in seeing what others like to do and what colours they use and how, a s o. There are so many things I like, but don't know it yet. The list is not to restrict your creativity!

Please, don't think you should send extras to earn a heart. I rate the swap itself, and if I think it's worth a heart, it will get a heart.

If any problems, questions or that kind, please message me :)

Wishlist/ things I like:

  • unused postcards (please, no touristy ones), especially I like music themed, art and illustrated postcards

  • swaps with written postcards, almost any theme: touristic, vintage, streets, children, photography, dance

  • colours and colourful things (like stationery, socks, mugs)

  • rubber stamps

  • tags

  • labels ("empty" ones, where is room for writing address or something else, can have decoration)

  • doilies

  • wax seal stamps/stamp heads (I have a flower wreath, feather, envelope, heart, rose and a star)

  • wax pearls or sticks for making wax seal

  • socks (European size 40)

  • body butter/hand cream/lotion, but please no vanilla scent

  • coloured book bindig rings (the ones that look like keyrings)

  • Welsh springer spaniel (theme), dogs

  • lilac, daisies

  • smell of jasmine, rhubarb

  • coffee

  • tea towels

  • tea

  • I especially love Barry's Tea -brand teas and Twinings Blackcurrant & Blueberry -flavour

  • books

  • elastic cord

  • canvas tote bags :D

  • washi tape

  • Mr. Men (Little Miss Sunshine etc.)

  • mail related items

  • sheet music

  • plastic envelopes with popper closing (letter size, A5 and smaller)

  • stencils

  • donkeys, they looks so cute (theme)

  • hand written letters

  • ATC´s, flip books etc.

  • winter

  • sock yarn (with wool)

  • drawing

  • pens

  • lace

  • waterproof thin pointed pens

  • many other things :)
