Please, don't feel pressure to send me things I collect. I love all kinds of happy mail, so feel free to send me what you want in swaps!

My Dislikes

  • smell of smoke/cigarettes
  • coffee (but I still drink it sometimes, especially in the night shifts at work, but only because it helps me to keep awake)
  • Spiders
  • Snakes
  • Glittering which go everywhere! (But if glittering is very well clued and don't make mess, then it is perfectly fine!)

Favorite Crafts

Right now I like for example:
- ATCs
- pocket letters
- mail art / envelope art
- crocheting
- papercrafts
- rubber stamping
- bullet journaling
- adult colouring
- mixed media
- I'm always ready to try something new, and learn new things! For example calligraphy writing is thing I would like to learn more


I don't have any allergies at all, so you don't have to stress about it. Yay!

You can trust me!

I always...

...send my swaps as soon as possible, because I know international mails can travel long time, and I want you to receive my swap soon.

...click the link of "sent" after I have actually mailed my swaps

...check the weight of my envelopes to make sure I put enough postage stamps on it

...double-check the reguirements of the swap to make sure I send everything I need to send in swaps

...rate received swaps in the same day when I received them (or as soon as possible when coming back home from travelling for example)

...write a little note to my personal notebook every swaps I have joined, so I can be organized what I have made, sent, received etc.

...contact/send messages to my swap partner before rating down, if there is any problems

...want to make you smile and happy!

So, please, contact me easily if there's any concerns or problems! I really would like to make you happy, so I'm ready to re-send, if my swaps gone lost while travelling or something else happened. Just let me know.

Happy swapping!

My Language Skills

I can speak and write well Finnish and English, but I also underestand (with the help of dictionary) Swedish and French. So, if you speak these languages, feel free to write me with it. Oh, and I have also studied one course of Finnish sign language some years ago, but unfortunately I have forgotten quite lot because the lack of use of it, but learning was really fun.

Flakers :(
