About Me

Hello there!

note please: due to the recent strike in Finnish Mail there will most likely be delays in deliveries. I will rate the swaps as soon as I get them. I am really sorry for late ratings because of this. .

Hi from Finland! I am Tuutis, a swapper, penpaller, postcrosser; mail has always had a central point in my life.

Other than that, I love music, both listening and playing. If you like, please share your favourite musician, or maybe few pieces from your latest playlist?

Favorite Books

I read nearly anything that is written nicely and clearly. Not a big fan of horror books any more, though.

I am always looking for new authors whose books to read.

I normally don´t like novels where the story jumps back and forward in the time as I have really hard time following it then :D.

Favorite Movies

Here again I like movies based on real life, true stories, but also enjoy comedies. I don't watch much films, as I loose interest very quickly, if there's something boring.

Favorite Television

I only watch television while doing something else, so it must be easy watching or very interesting documentaries.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, rubber stamping, card making, sewing and some crocheting and lino cutting.


  • unused postcards (please, no touristy ones), especially I like music themed and illustrated postcards
  • colours and colourful things
  • rubber stamps
  • coffee
  • tea towels
  • tea (but please no green tea)
  • books
  • libraries
  • hand written letters
  • ATC´s
  • winter
  • sock yarn (with wool)
  • paints (but no oil paints)
  • drawing
  • pens
  • lace
  • waterproof thin pointed pens
  • marzipan
  • magnetic bookmarks
  • rubber stamping, crafting and knitting magazines
  • wax seal stamps/stamp heads (I only have a heart and a star)
  • wax pearls or sticks for making wax seal
  • pretty tape
  • Mr. Men (Little Miss Sunshine etc.)
  • stickers shaped as postage stamp
  • anything else shaped as postage stamp
  • mail related items
  • sheet music
  • plastic envelopes with popper closing (letter size, A5 and smaller)
  • stencils
  • tea spoons

I don´t like

  • skulls, bones, skeletons -themed things
  • sticky notes (as these often doesn't even stick :D)
  • hard candies
  • grapefruit
  • teacher's stickers (saying "good job" etc.)
  • dark chocolate
  • cherries in chocolate
  • bubble gum without xylitol
  • note cards
  • old postcards or vintage kind "fake" vintage, that has machine made brownish back
  • die cuts, most of them, especially no to very seasonal ones, Easter, Halloween etc. (Christmas is fine :))
  • green tea

Favorite colours

  • turquoise
  • greyish blue

Note Please

Please note that the mail from Finland takes normally around one week, but sometimes up to two or even four weeks to travel internationally.

I click the "sent" button when I already sent my swap and don't have it in my hands anymore. So the date does not always match (and is often one day later than the actual sending date).

I am easily pleased :) I don't expect the swaps be directly from my likes only as I am interested in seeing what others like to do and what colours they use and how, a s o. There are so many things I like, but don't know it yet.

However, the I don't like list is pretty permanent. I get migraine form dark chocolate, grapefruit and green tea, so I won't even try it.

Please, don't think you should send extras to earn a heart. I rate the swap itself, and if I think it's worth a heart, it will get a heart.

If any problems, questions or that kind, please message me :)

RockyBeach rated for EML: Make an Envelope #2 on Dec 7, 2019
Comment: Thank you for you wonderful envelope! A nice winter vibe. I also try not to buy too much new stuff, I have tons of crafting paper but I only use magazine cutouts and old books. But I keep buying craft paper anyways. I also love your neat handwriting! I had to check twice if it wasn't printed. :)

MaryCheng rated for Collaged Face PC on Oct 16, 2019
Comment: Thank you Tuutis for my collaged Postcard. Very creative! I received it this morning. Loving the postcard.
Comment: Hi Tuutis thank you so much for the Jazz musicians PC ... and I absolutely love the Moomin's postage stamp ! The PC arrived in great condition so I think it's safe to forgo the varnish. Sometimes I will use a gentle coat of mod podge on mine, but usually I send without a coating.Depends if I want it shiny or not :) I compliment you on your beautiful penmanship. A joy to read. Happy October swapping peace love light
