โ‡ข I only host swaps for which I'm willing to angel for a swapper, should someone flake on their partner.

โ‡ข Not all my swaps allow newbies with no ratings to join them. If you're a total newbie and therefore don't meet the rating criteria of the swap, feel free to message me! I'll gladly do the same swap privately with you. :) This is currently on hold due to the ongoing apocalypse.

โ‡ข I always send my swaps on time, and I mark them as "Sent" on the day I've put stamps on them and left them in the outgoing mail box across the street, from which it will be collected around 4pm from Monday to Friday. However, it being the outgoing mailbox instead of the post office, the stamps on anything I send will usually NOT be canceled until a few days later, if at all, especially now that the pandemic is making a mess out of things. Naturally this is 100% out of my control, so please don't be a petty dingus about it.

โ‡ข Similarly, giving me a 1 with no prior communication and/or when I haven't had the chance to offer to resend the swap says more about you than it says about me.

โ‡ข If you misspell my name, no hearts for you. ๐Ÿ˜ค

Hiya! I'm Neea. I'm a Finnish les๐Ÿan in her early 30s, a Sagittarius, single as heck and about to catladify myself. The only thing I'm missing are the cats.

I might come across a bit... hm. Snarky, or rude, but I promise I'm nice. ;-; I've had people (both in real life and online) tell me that I gave them a very intimidating first impression, but that later they realised that I'm just... a socially challenged marshmallow. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'm currently an artisan student with a focus on textiles and all things yarny. Feel free to send me your leftover fabric, yarn and thread. ๐Ÿ‘€ Besides textile and fiber related things, my hobbies include painting, drawing, paper crafts, reading, writing, snail mailing, enjoying nature, traveling, roadtrips and learning about different cultures and languages. โญ

I read mostly non-fiction, memoirs and biografies, gay romance, historical fiction and a metric shit ton of fanfiction. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I also tend to re-read my favourites from my teenage years again and again and again...

I also like poetry! Do share your favourites with me. I'm hesitant to call myself a poet yet, but I do write some myself.

I love learning foreign languages! I'm currently learning Korean while trying not to forget my Latvian and everything else. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

I like making things that I can use, whether it's woodworking or pottery. I made a ton of wooden spoons and other kitchen tools in a women's woodworking class, and all kinds of pots and things in a pottery class a few years ago. I always like to try new things, even if I don't end up loving it. Lately I've been thinking about trying paper making and then using that home made paper in various crafts.

I like to sew, crochet and do all kinds of stuff with yarn. Like weaving tapestries. And I hecking love embroidery. (Yes, I am indeed a 97-year-old lady inside a 30-year-old woman's body.)

When I have the time and the patience I digitally draw things on my drawing tablet.

I LOVE YARN. Please send me all kinds of fun yarn. If it sparkles somehow, I guarantee I will love it.

Embroidery thread, quilt kits and fabric scraps are awesome. Feel free to dump all your leftovers in my mailbox.

Snail mail supplies: letter sets, letter paper, envelopes, postcards, address labels, stickers, washi tape...

Gel and glitter pens in fun colours!

Roses, floral print stuff, pressed flowers - bell shaped flowers and anything in shades of blue and violet are my favourites!

Glanzbilder or kiiltokuvat or whatever those are in English. These are not the same as whatever people call "die cuts" though. I think googling "Victorian scrapbooking" or "German scraps" will give you the right idea.

Patterned craft paper, origami paper, book pages and pretty much anything I can use in paper crafts. Even things like newspapers in different languages! ๐Ÿ“ฐ

ATCs for my (so far pretty small) collection! โœจ

Rubber stamps, clear stamps, stamped pieces of paper.

Surrealism and impressionism are some of my favourite art styles. Also female portraits in any style.

Indigenous art, textiles and photography!

The art of Tove Jansson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Artemisia Gentileschi, Hilma af Klint, Janis Rozentฤls, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Claude Monet, Rudolf Koivu, Akseli Gallen-Kallela...

Feminist art, zines and literature. Please see my "things I don't like" for this bit though!

Zines in general! Tiny ones, big ones, black and white, full colour, photocopied, fancy printed ones...

Kids' art! I've received some kids' drawings in swaps where a drawing or a sketch is required, and I love it. Especially if it's something weird or random.

ALLERGIES & DISLIKES:

Dairy makes me shit.

I really hate sour candies.

Hate is a strong word, but it's still not strong enough to accurately describe how much I flipping hate passion fruit.

TEA & COFFEE:

According to the International Coffee Association, each Finn consumes 12 kilograms of coffee per year. I, however, am a statistical outlier and a total weirdo amongst my fellow countrymen, since I'm not really a coffee drinker - but I do like trying fun coffee flavoured drinks, especially in summer! Some of my favourites are vanilla lattes, iced chai lattes and mint chocolate frappes. Yum! I've recently got into those "just add water" kind of flavoured instant coffee thingies; feel free to send me some!

Some tea flavours and varieties I really really like: chai, earl grey, oolong, darjeeling, rooibos, breakfast teas, spicy teas, chocolate/coffee, anything that's baked dessert flavoured (glazed lemon loaf, cinnamon bun, apple pie, blueberry muffin? oh hell yeah), cinnamon, cardamom, liquorice, Christmas-y flavour combinations, caramelised pear/apple, Turkish apple... basically any flavoured black tea will do!

Some tea brands I like: TAZO, Stash, Pickwick Spices, Bigelow, Pukka, Clipper, Twinings... anything I can't get in Finland, basically!

NO THANK YOU: detox, decaf, hibiscus, rosehip, chamomille, pomegranate, passion fruit, peppermint, Nordqvist brand, plain green tea.

CANDY:

I like chocolate of all sorts! I especially like chocolate with bits of nuts, peanut butter, salted caramel, coconut, mint, matcha, liquorice, dried fruit etc inside it! If you send me Laima chocolate I will love you five-ever.

Those yummy nougat and nut bars!

Any vegan (or at least dairy free) snacks in general.

Liquorice, liquorice dragees, salmiakki and pretty much any kind of candy. Eucalyptus, mint, lemon... strawberry, cherry, watermelon, pineapple... all sorts of fruity flavours. Haribo Peach candies are some of my favourites! ๐Ÿ‘

Anything coffee or chocolate flavoured is A+++

Contemplating the inevitability of death.

People who misspell my name, or people who straight up give me a new name because they've never seen it before so clearly it can't be a real name. เฒ _เฒ  No, my name is not Neena, Neera, Negra, Neaa, Nea, Nena, Nene, or Naea. If you're literate enough to navigate this website, I expect you to be able to write four letters in the order they're supposed to be written in. Misspellers get no hearts from me.

The general concept and existence of men.

Bullet journal stuff. I don't hate it, but I have no use for it and will most likely just regift it.

ITEMS RELATED TO THANKSGIVING, HALLOWEEN, 4TH OF JULY AND OTHER NON-FINNISH HOLIDAYS. I do not understand why someone would wish me, a Finn, happy 4th of July. May as well wish me a happy regular Wednesday, since that's about as meaningful to me.

Those moustache graphics that were everywhere a couple of years ago. I get an allergic reaction in my eyeballs every time I see them.

MINIONS. Get those yellow demons away from me.

Most geek stuff, such as video games, superheroes, Marvel, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Stranger Things, Steven Universe, Adventure Time and so on.

Cosmetic products. I don't mind sheet face masks, but all sorts of wrinkle cream or lotion samples are just wasted on me.

Faux progressive politics. Don't be so open minded that you let your brain fall out.

...speaking of which: I'm a feminist but I have no use for embarrassing "Smash the patriarchy!! [picture of a fist with manicured nails]" or "Feminism is for everyone!" or "Feminists are cool!" or "Blarhgf blahrgrg the radical notion that women blahblaghfhgd" stickers and such. Miss me with that free-the-nipple nonsense. Actual feminist art and yonic imagery is fine (as long as it's made by women!!). Think second wave. Think Guerrilla Girls, Valerie Solanas, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pussy Riot and all the unladylike screeching hags that men love to hate. I love rocking the boat - or, more accurately, hijacking the ship, killing the captain, throwing his crew into the ocean, freeing their hostages and abandoning ship (and then sinking it or setting it on fire). I'm a hairy, unladylike lesbian who has no patience for fun, watered-down and non-threatening "hobby feminism" that requires no critical thinking whatsoever and includes, coddles and/or makes excuses for men, and my activism reflects that.

Homophobes can also heck right off. ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿป

If you call me q***r I will consider it hate speech and report you. Don't send me stuff with that word in/on it.

Sometimes I get collage work that feels so seemless and natural that I want to stop and study it so I can improve my own art. This is one of those. Thank you!!
