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.
I love reading and Iâ€™ve 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.
I donâ€™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.
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 â€œKeeping Up Appearancesâ€. Sometimes I like to watch Asian dramas or anime.
I have always loved creativeness, drawing and junk-journaling. As a fan of Travelerâ€™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 havenâ€™t yet met a tea I donâ€™t like. I drink coffee too, but not so often. I like coffee themed items though.
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.
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.
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.
