About Me

I am Estonian, but living in Finland now with my partner and two gerbils. I would love to have bigger pets but unfortunately, he is allergic to both cats and dogs, so we have settled with our adorable rodents instead. We are located in Espoo and my favorite part about this area is the quietness, closeness to the sea and beautiful view from our windows. I love journaling, writing, digging through flea markets, vintage ephemera, drinking tea and going for walks in the nature. Fall and spring are especially beautiful. I am fan of Korean and Japanese cuisine and I like to make homemade kimchi.

Favorite Books

I love reading and I have been surrounded by books since early age. However, I have horrible memory when it comes to authors or headlines. I can retell the story in detail, but everything on the cover just slips out from my head. My favorite genres are fantasy, sci-fi and mystery. My most recent favorites are Haruki Murakami and David Lagercrantz books. I also love Harry Potter series, Tales of Otori and Robin Hobb books.

Favorite Movies

I don't really like movies as I feel like they are never fully complete. I prefer books over movies because they give me more room for imagination and they are not limited to few hours on the screen.

Favorite Television

Until I met my current partner I didn't watch many TV-shows. He, on the other hand, collects movies and series and is big fan of Star Trek, so I have taken over some of his love for the latter. My favorite characters are Tuvok and Data. My all-time favorite British comedy is Keeping Up Appearances. Sometimes I like to watch Asian dramas or anime.

Favorite Crafts

I have always loved creativeness, drawing and junk-journaling. As a fan of Traveler's Notebook, I like to journal and decorate the pages with (vintage) ephemera, washi tapes, stamps and stickers. I love paper, especially lightweight, old book pages, vellum, glassine, tea dyed, washi and other interesting or textured types.


  • Tea. I haven't yet met a tea I don't like. I drink coffee too, but not so often. I like coffee themed items though.

  • Hot chocolate.

  • Matcha. I love everything matcha related.

  • I am somewhat (hugely) obsessed with washi tapes, stickers, memo pads, labels, letter sets, rubber stamps and other cute or vintage-style things. I love Japanese stationery and items.

  • Postage stamps (new or used). I find them to be nice addition to my notebook decor.

  • (Vintage) ephemera: cut outs or pages from children's books or magazines. I am currently on search for some fairy images from old children books.

  • Stamped images on (rectangular) piece of paper. I add them to my journal pages.

  • Colors: earthy tones, pastels, greens, violets, blues, rose gold, watercolor texture, copper, black and white, sepia and kraft paper color. These are the most favorite, but I like other colors as well.

  • Favorite (postcard) themes: mail and letter (mailboxes, stamps, wax seals, airmail etc); books and library; vintage ladies; fragile or beautiful creatures and beings (fairies, unicorns, dragons etc); fairytales; romantic vintage; children book illustrations; coffee and tea; everything cute and adorable; floral; food; drawings.

  • Animals: cats, dogs, deers, owls, bears, foxes, bunnies, hedgehogs and squirrels.

  • Bookmarks (there are never enough, as I am extraordinarily good at losing things between books).

  • Chocolate (look under dislikes for specification).

  • Tim Holtz products.

  • If you are from Japan and it is not too much trouble I would love to have some pages from used/old magazines, newspapers or books written in your language.


  • Religion. I respect everyone's beliefs, but it is not something I am interested in, so please do not send me anything related to it.

  • Jewelry, necklaces, bracelets etc.

  • Dark chocolate.

  • Make up, nail polish, lip balm etc.

  • Glitter and bling.

  • The smell of smoke.

  • Puffy, 3D or teacher/reward stickers.

  • I have no need for pens or pencils.

  • Neon colors

  • Insects, especially spiders. I am not terribly scared of them, but they give me creeps and I prefer not to encounter them. I do love ladybugs, butterflies and bees though.


Comment: What a beautiful and magical package filled with tea! I cannot tell you how delightful it was to open up your package and see the little sleeves you made for the tea bags. The tiny little card you enclosed is beautiful! Thank you so very much for brightening my day in the most incredible way!

Comment: Thank you for your beautiful journal! It is beautifully presented and was such fun to read (my mother had never seen a magpie journal before but asked if she could look through yours - she was also very impressed!). Many thanks again, and happy swapping!

Comment: Oh my goodness!! This one finally arrived and it was SO worth the wait!! I'm absolutely shocked with how beautiful it all is, just stunning. This is by far one of the prettiest things I've ever received in the mail, I'm loving it! You're so creative, kind and generous, thank you! I loved the paper goodies, the stamps OMG so cute!! I've never tried that chai tea before, but looks amazing, as well as the Paddington bear tea (so cute!), the stickers are beautiful and the highlighter is gorgeous, I simply love it! Thanks for including a fridge magnet as well, I'll be happy to add it to my collection :) Girl, this was seriously amazing and I still can't believe how wonderful it is, loved the way you decided to pack everything, like a flipbook, and the way you decorated the envelope, it is simply gorgeous. If you ever want to have another private swap, just let me know and I'll be happy to do it again. I had the best time swapping with you :)

Comment: You outdid your last envelope to me, and that one was AMAZING! I love the way you wrap things and use the doilies, the paper you choose and your washi samples are gorgeous! I wish we had that brand of tea here. It’s awesome! I’d offer to swap tea, but I’m sure your tea is better than mine haha. Thank you for another wonderful swap. I love everything you sent me.

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful enve of goodies. All of the teas look amazing; I'm going to try the Pukka womankind first. I love that brand but have not seen this flavor here and it sounds quite yummy. The little holder you made with 'Drink me' and the wax seal is beautiful, it is earning a place in one of my journals! Thank you for the extra washi too.
Response: I'm so happy it arrived safely and that you enjoyed the swap! :) It was fun to put together. Ah, that's what I do too when I receive something extra special - add it into my Traveler's Notebook. Enjoy the teas! :)

Hey sweetie! Thanks so much for the wonderful happy mail you've sent my way, it is absolutely stunning and even thought it was not necessary to send a second swap because I knew the first one would make it, I truly appreciate how much thought and care you put into both swaps. Thanks for making my day! I'll be replying to you soon :)
