About Me

A happy-to-be-a-Finn and loving travelIing! I work on social field, in an open rehabilitation unit for alcohol and substance abusers. On my free-time I enjoy good music and friends, I also enjoy reading and doing things with my hands. I am a very visual person and enjoy looking at beautiful things :)

Last but not least, I really love to explore, I have been travelling a little and plan to travel more. For example, I have lived in Vietnam for a short while and would love to go back!

EDIT: Had a few years break from swapping and now starting again, just making a comeback 😊

Favorite Crafts

I like making jewellery and scrapping photoalbums, however I end up doing all sort of crafts or self-made things, like jam for example :) Is baking a form of craft? If not, I enjoy it anyway. I like to do something new out of old things, like paper crafting using old books as material or combining something found from the nature with something I already have but don´t use.Anyway, recycling, but with a style :)

What I really like

  • Vintage birds
  • Owls
  • Feathers
  • Matryoshkas
  • Natural materials, like wood or shell or recycled paper etc.
  • Recycling and recycled things, I just recently made earrings out of metallic lids of glass bottles, these are more than welcome!
  • Books, magazines, pages... Reading has always been one of my top hobbies, so I love books, especially old books and magazines, pages that are so old they turned a little yellow already
  • Worn-out looking things
  • Maps
  • Stamps
  • Coffee, coffee, coffee
  • Shopping at thrift stores
  • Romantic prints, but not only roses you know
  • Old tea cups and laces
  • Old stuff in general, NOT meaning old and dirty

Favourite colours

  • Green, at the moment I like different shades of green, but not very bright greens
  • Black
  • Grey
  • Different shades of powder, from pinkish to more of a beige kind of shade
  • Earth tones, or warm colours, whatever they are called
  • Worn-out looks in all colours :)
  • I also love the colours of an early morning, just before the sun rises, that kind of a blueish but not blue moment of the day, especially in summer


IMumford and Sons, I also like Bob Marley, Delay Trees (FIN), Red Hot Chili Peppers, Oren Lavie, The B and the Band (FIN), Katajainen Kansa (FIN, Christian reggae), Gogol Bordello

Countries I want to go to

Mongolia, Afganistan, France, Italy, Vietnam again, South-Korea, Holland, Israel again, Russia again

Wish List

  • russian doll (matrjoshka)-related items
  • letter sets
  • deco-tapes
  • anything owl-related
  • old laces
  • beads
  • organic teas
  • herbs
  • beautiful hand soaps
  • old-looking things in general
  • silver in jewellery
  • self-made envelopes
  • old photographs
  • items for scrapping
  • matrjoshka- or owl fabrics
  • origami papers
  • natural or home-made papers
  • Graham Franciose, art, pc´s, anything, I adore his pieces
  • Nicoletta Ceccoli, I don´t want her, but her pieces of art, pc´s etc. :)

A definite no to:

  • childish flower-stuff
  • pink
  • hearts
  • plastic beads
  • gothic style
  • plastic items in general
