About Me

Hi! I'm a 25 yo office worker from Finland, currently looking for a new job (my current contract ends soon) and stressing about my future. 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 Keyakizaka46, Hinatazaka46, Morning Musume '19, Angerme and BEYOOOOONDS. Kpop favorites, even though I'm not as big of a fan as I used to be, are fromis_9, BTS, JBJ, Wanna One, IOI and gugudan. From cpop I only know/like 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 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!

Favorite Crafts

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

Crafting on my planner and my TN. I currently have two planners, one for stuff I need to do and remember, work things and appointments and such, and one for memory planning. In my TN I document my travels and try to do the same for all the museums I visit - though sometimes I skip some visits out of sheer laziness. I also crochet - not very actively at the moment, but I'm looking forward to getting back into it again next year!

Things I like

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

  • stickers and washi - I use this 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, Masté, 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
  • 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)

Comment: Thank you for sharing! I absolutely LOVE Drag Race Thailand! I am so sad they aren't going to have a third season. :( I hadn't heard about the other two shows, but I enjoy Sci-fi, and I live in France, so they both sound like shows I would enjoy. Thanx again!
