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: thank you! sorry for slow rating - our house is being remodeled and the computer was unplugged for about a week (yikes) I think that is a beautiful card and not overly religious! Also - the street name is Danish.
Response: You're welcome! :)
