My Postcrossing Profile

About Me

I'm back! :) Again! Haven't been here for years but got inspired by approaching xmas.


I'm a 40-something mom of 3 teenage daughters. I call them Tehotytöt (Powerpuff Girls), so anything related to those cartoon characters will be received with glee.

We have a cat and recently got a puppy to help our girls cope with teenage angst. My girls and I also volunteer at our local cat shelter (humane society) weekly.

I'm a geocacher. I love candy (including chocolate) and am NOT allergic to anything. Oh, and I drink tea - I only drink coffee if I'm very tired and need to stay awake for something important (happens like twice a year). My ultimate favorite color is red.

Movies and books I love

Lord of the Rings! Hobbit! Totoro! Minions :D

I love Harry Potter books, the movies were ok.

I read a lot (fantasy, chick-lit, detective stories...) and am on Bookcrossing (Delenna).

My favorite tv-show was (is) obviously Babylon 5 ;)

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE making postcards, bookmarks, scrapbooking... and woodwork if I had the time and stuff. I "collect" stuff I can use in my paper crafts - all sorts of little wooden figures/shapes, different kinds of (heavy) paper, stickers, washi-tape... Any sort of alphabet and numbers are always welcome (sticker, wooden, papercut) and same goes with pharases and words.

Sometimes I do small thingies from modelling clay (Cernit) to be used in my crafts or as gifts (like fridge magnets).

I also have a few penpals so anything stationery related will be very usefull :)

I'm finally going to try doing ATC's, so if you have any spare blanks I'd appreciate them, can't seem to find them here. I'm also interested in Pocket Letters, never heard of them before this.

I don't cook. My husband does that :)

Top 3 in travelling dreams...

Japan!

NZ again but with way much more time. I dream of travelling from the top end to the south end by train - stopping in several spots.

Anyplace where I haven't been geocaching yet :D

Communication

Please tell me if you do not receive the stuff I send you (I'll check my missing ratings too, to find out has my mail arrived). Especially with those email swaps which I send early - if you do not receive I blame the technology AND WILL resend. The other swaps I also send in time so if you don't receive, just tell me and we'll work it out. My swaps are always international so the mail may travel a longer while.

Finnish mail doesn't move on the weekends or bank holidays. They also deliver it only 4 days a week.

Stamps & FDC FOR TRADE

https://www.flickr.com/gp/145878568@N07/8B0mn1

is the link (the URL section doesn't let me add secure links, it forces them into regular http-sites which then don't work) to my stamps and FDC collection I'm slowly trading away. I'm willing to trade them to nice stationery (letter paper and/or nice envelopes), Iwako hamster erasers and maybe something else - make me an offer if you're interested :) Set A of the FDC (of which #1 and #3 are postcards!) were each worth about 2,5euros in 2010 according to a Finnish stamp book.

Comment: I loved every single item! Thank you so much 😍 you really made my day ♥️ Reading your letter made me feel sad.. I wonder what kind of enjoyment people find doing such horrible things.. Much love all the way to you ❤️
Response: You're welcome! And I'm sorry my letter made you sad, didn't mean to. Changing her school was the best decision ever :) But I, too,often wonder about bullies' motovations.

Comment: What cute stationary. I know exactly who I will write too with each sheet....but I always save a sample sheet for me (I have a folder with over 100 sheets...yes, I am obsessed). Thank you so much for a great swap.
Response: I used to save a sheet of every stationery I got as a kid! I found the stash as an adult and had so much fun using them - and remembering when I first got them and all the letters I wrote back then :)

Comment: Oh, That is such a sweet quote and I totally agree with it. Very nice composition and love the envelope you mailed it in. Today the temperature in North Dakota Is the High of -13F and the low is -31F. BRRR! Good day to stay in and craft!
Response: Thank you for the lovely feedback :) I haven't done many ATCs yet so I'm a bit nervous when I send them out. It's cold and snowy here as well, and I agree, I prefer to stay indoors and craft :)

Comment: Thank for lovely ATC, but I will be happy if you tell me some Words of you..:)
Response: I'm glad you liked it :) Sorry I couldn't fit in a note, I had to make sure it doesn't go over 20g and cost more. I'm new to making ATC so all feedback is appreciated.
