ABOUT ME ♐️

Hiya. I'm Neea, I'm 29 years old and I'm from Finland. I'm currently a part time student of various things related to foreign languages and cultures, and I live in a small town near Helsinki with my 9-year-old Shetland Sheepdog. His name is Waldo and he's the cutest and floofiest in all the land and I love him lots. ♡♡♡

My hobbies are drawing and painting, all kinds of crafts (from cardmaking and snail mail letters and postcards to woodworking and pottery), reading, writing, enjoying nature, traveling abroad and learning about different cultures and learning languages. I'm currently learning Latvian and Korean, and I speak a handful of other languages (some more, some less). I'm also a long time kpop fan (one of the sensible ones, because I neither have the time nor the energy to be as insanely obsessed as I could be lol).

I'm currently in the process of writing a prehistoric lesbian fantasy novel, and at this rate it will be approximately five hundred years before it's finished, because I tend to procrastinate by drawing maps and people and landscapes from the story... :D

If I come off as rude in any part of my profile it's only because some people get on my nerves because apparently they either can't fucking read or have the intellectual capabilities of a rotten turnip - possibly both. I promise I'm a well-adjusted individual and perfectly normal and nice in real life, lmao.

FAVOURITE BOOKS 💕

I'm an information sponge so I read mostly non-fiction. I like to read about various topics, and lately I've read biographies of contemporary and historical women and female viewpoints of historical events. I also read a lot of DIY books, even if I'm not particularly interested in making the thing myself. I just like to know how things work. (Which is also why I watch youtube tutorials about the strangest of things, just to know how things are made.)

My favourite novels... I never know how to answer this question. I must say I do love Jane Austen a lot. There's just something about Pride And Prejudice that makes me want to read it over and over and over again. (The Keira Knightley movie and the 1995 mini series are also fab.)

Novels such as Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and Maurice by E. M. Forster are my jam. If it has lesbians in it or a happy gay ending, I will read it.

That being said, the heterosexual male perspective on literally anything does not interest me in the slightest and I will not read novels written by or about them.

FAVOURITE CRAFTS 💜

I like making things that I can use. I made a ton of wooden spoons and other kitchen tools in a women's woodworking class, and all kinds of pots and things in a pottery class a few years ago. I always like to try new things, even if I don't end up loving it. Lately I've been thinking about trying paper making and then using that home made paper in various crafts.

I always make birthday and holiday cards myself, and often my gifts to others are also something I've made myself. Sometimes it's something I made in woodworking class, sometimes it's paintings or fan art of their favourite characters.

Recently I've started practicing digital art on a drawing tablet, and I'm slowly getting used to it. It definitely has its advantages compared to traditional art!

I'm interested in learning embroidery and other needle-and-thread things (so far I only know how to fix minor things, like replacing missing buttons, sewing patches on clothes and the like). Maybe I'll finally learn how to knit one day.

THINGS I LIKE 👍🏻

Just like in my "Favourite crafts" above, I like things that I can use. Craft supplies are always welcome, as are bags of tea and candy and anything that has a purpose other than being a decorative item that collects dust while sitting in a shelf.

I love pastel colours (especially violet, pink, mint and blue), glitter and anything holo. :D

I would like to receive things related to the following:

SNAIL MAIL 💌 ART 🎨 CRAFTS ✂️

  • snail mail supplies: letter sets, letter paper, postcards, address labels, envelope seal stickers…
  • gel pens in fun colours!
  • roses, floral print stuff, pressed flowers (harebells are my favourite!)
  • glitter, sequins, sparkly things, holo everything
  • stickers
  • washi tape
  • Glanzbilder or kiiltokuvat or whatever those are in English (these are NOT the same as "die cuts"!!)
  • patterned craft paper
  • origami paper
  • rubber stamps & clear stamps
  • surrealism
  • impressionism
  • the art of Tove Jansson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Artemisia Gentileschi, Janis Rozentāls, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Claude Monet, Rudolf Koivu, Akseli Gallen-Kallela...
  • feminist art, zines and literature (please read my dislikes for this!!)
  • zines in general! tiny ones, big ones, black and white, full colour, photocopied, fancy printed ones...

POSTCARDS, STAMPS, COINS ETC

  • I would like to receive postcards related to anything and everything I've listed on my "Things I like" section! You can't really go wrong with that.
  • I collect vintage postcards (the older the better, and I prefer pre-1970s), so if you have some to spare I would gladly add them to my collection. :)
  • I also collect postal stamps, my favourite themes being anything Asian, animals and birds, flowers and plants, landscapes (aurora borealis, mountains, national parks...), food, fine art, cartoons, cute Japanese characters, notable women from history, musical instruments, literature and pretty much anything else I've mentioned in my "Things I like" section. Scratch and sniff stamps are the coolest (like I can't even believe those are a thing??!??!) so feel free to use them in your envelopes when sending me things! :D
  • My coin collection is still very small and honestly, I don't really collect any particular set of coins - I just like having a jar full of foreign currency, haha. I prefer coins that have pictures of animals or flowers on them, or something unusual or otherwise interesting. I really like getting pre-Euro coins from European countries that nowadays use the Euro - especially if you have any Finnish markka, Estonian kroon or Latvian lats, I'd be happy to take very good care of them! Of American coins I do have the Iowa, Delaware and New Hampshire quarters so if you like, you can send me some other state coins! Maybe I can make a project out of collecting all of them. :)

~AESTHETIC~ JUNK (lmao idk what to call this)

  • Regency, Victorian & Edwardian fashion and aesthetic
  • lolita fashion
  • folklore and mythology
  • angel and goddess imagery
  • rainbows
  • lesbian stuff

  • 80s and 90s aesthetic and fashion
  • Barbie, especially vintage (early 90s and older)
  • Jem and other 80s and 90s "girly" cartoons

  • Ghibli movies, Fullmetal Alchemist, NGE, Otoyomegatari, Emma, Rose of Versailles, Sailor Moon, Utena, Akatsuki no Yona, Yotsuba&!, Doraemon, 80s & 90s shoujo...

ANIMALS

  • Foxes, raccoons, bunnies, cats, dog breeds that have the kind of face that wolves or foxes do (so yes to shelties and huskies, no to pugs and frenchies), wolves and the rest of the Canidae family, bears, elephants, mice, sugar gliders, stoats, badgers, weasels, martens, otters, minks, wolverines, hedgehogs, squirrels, seals, pangolins, penguins, crows, ravens, kestrels, sheep, goats… all kinds of cute and furry things! :D I prefer animals of the Northern Hemisphere. Think Nordic, Canadian or Arctic wildlife!

I'm not a huge fan of any of the human male characters in these movies but most others (as in, human female characters and animals of either sex) are A+.
  • I also like folk tales and fairytales that aren't Disney. I'd love to receive postcards and other things about Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and other Disney fairytale stories in their not-yet-Disneyfied forms. ♡

KPOP

  • BTS (Yoongi ♡♡♡), Hyuna, Sunmi, Wonder Girls, 4Minute, Mamamoo, Monsta X, B.A.P., DBSK, Shinhwa, H.O.T., S.E.S, cringy 90s kpop in general, and maaany others, although I mostly follow BTS and Hyuna. Tbh I never know what anyone else is doing. Ask me how many members EXO has left and I will have to google it lmao.

TEA, CANDY ETC

  • I'm not allergic to anything, but I don't eat dairy. Dairy free chocolate is very much appreciated! However if a swap requires chocolate and you can't find dairy free chocolate anywhere, regular non-vegan chocolate is fine. My sister will happily eat it for me. :)
  • chocolate of all sorts (I love chocolate with nuts, peanut butter, salted caramel, coconut, liquorice, dried fruit etc in it!)
  • vegan snacks in general
  • liquorice and salmiakki and pretty much any kind of candy (but not sour candies!!)
  • tea! I drink my tea as is, so no milk, sugar, honey or anything, so I like the sweeter kinds of tea, like ones that smell and taste like apple pie, cinnamon apple, honey, caramel, caramelised apple/pear/etc, vanilla, strawberry, orange, blueberry muffin… I'm not a big fan of black tea, but blackcurrant or other sorts of berry teas are nice. I also really love rooibos of all kinds! ♡ You can send me any kind of tea though, someone will drink it eventually. :)
  • coffee flavoured and scented things
  • scented things in general, such as candles (cinnamon, apple pie, candy, chocolate, coffee, floral scents, scents from nature...)

MISCELLANEOUS

  • I don't wear makeup and I know absolutely nothing about skincare but I like face masks and all sorts of soapy things. Lush soaps are my favourite things to waste too much money on. :D

THINGS I DISLIKE 👎🏻

Contemplating the inevitability of death.

People who don't spell check their shit, especially when they're writing and/or typing names and addresses on international mail. ಠ_ಠ

I have no allergies, but I don't eat dairy and I really, really, REALLY dislike sour candies, passion fruit flavored things and most American chocolate like Hershey's because in my experience it tastes like dirt lmao. (Reese's peanut butter thingies are good though. Please send me some.)

I don't dig handmade things that look like they came straight out of a "all in one" craft kit.

Bullet journal stuff. You can send me weekday/month/calendar stickers and other bullet journal-y things if it fits the swap, but I will most likely just end up regifting them.

Halloween. Pumpkins. Horror.

Those mustache graphics that were everywhere a couple of years ago. Same with mason jars, flamingoes, pineapples and owls these days to be honest. They're everywhere and I'm so tired of seeing them, my eyes are exhausted.

That one god damn squiggly lettering thing that everyone and their mum uses in their bullet journals and inspirational quote posters.

Anything that has some dumb English or French text all over it for no reason. "Inspiring" or "quirky" quotes, random words, even just a bunch of city names or whatever (you know the shirts and tote bags that just say PARIS LONDON TOKYO NEW YORK on them? yep. those -_-). Not a fan. Especially if they're written in that one god damn squiggly font. Hnnnnhhhhhhhhhh.

Disney: annoying talking animal sidekicks, Alice in Wonderland, Big Hero 6, Cars, Chicken Little, Finding Nemo, Frozen, The Incredibles, Inside Out, Jungle Book, Lilo & Stitch, Peter Pan, Wreck-It Ralph... I can't be arsed to list every single thing so please assume that if what you have in mind is not included in my "Things I like" section, it probably belongs here.

MINIONS. Get those yellow demons away from me.

Most geek stuff, such as Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, LOTR and so on. Video games. Most superhero things, dystopian novels and scifi. Transformers and other robot stuff or whatever. Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty and whatever the kids on tumblr watch these days.

The general concept of men.

I'm a feminist but I have no use for embarrassing "Smash the patriarchy!! [picture of a fist with manicured nails]" or "Feminism is for everyone!" or "Feminists are cool!" or "Blarhgf blahrgrg the radical notion that women blahblaghfhgd" stickers and such. Actual feminist art and yonic imagery is fine (as long as it's made by women!!). Think second wave. Think Guerrilla Girls, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pussy Riot and all the unladylike screeching hags that men love to hate. I'm an ugly hairy dyke who has no patience for fun & quirky "hobby feminism" that includes and/or coddles men, and my activism reflects that.

Don't fucking send me any god or jesus bullshit or I'll give you a 1 and send you anthrax in an envelope and subscribe you to a daily midget porn/scat fetish newsletter. I don't know if such a thing exists, but I'm prepared to find one just for you. Do not test me. 💀💩

Homophobes can also heck right off. (ง •̀_•́)ง i will fite u with my tiny lesbian fists

🚨 PLEASE NOTE 🚨

1) I always send my swaps on time, and I mark them as "Sent" on the day I've paid for them and left them in the outgoing mail box. However, there is no actual post office in my town. I pay for and leave my mail in a corner shop which does nearly everything that a post office normally would - except stamping. Therefore, whatever I send will NOT be stamped until a few days later, if even then, or at all! This is 100% out of my control, and if you give me a lousy rating for something as stupid as that, then, uhh. Have fun larping as a petty 9-year-old I guess?

2) On the swaps I host: follow the rules and don't be a dickhole, and you won't be banned. Simple.

3) I'm always willing to angel for my swaps if needed.

4) If you can't join one of my swaps because your rating is too low or you're a newbie or whatever, I'll gladly host a private swap with you! ♡

💀 HALL OF SHAME 💀

My name is Neea. As you can see, it is only four letters long. N, E, E and A. It's even in my swapbot username. One would think that'd be an easy name for any literate person to write and/or type correctly, yet somehow I have received swaps addressed to the following variations of my name:

  • Neae
  • Naea
  • Neaa
  • Nee
  • Nea
  • Neena
  • Neeaa

I am none of these things. My last name has also been... hmm... modified on more than one occasion, and the delivery of one such envelope was delayed because of this confusion.

Every time you butcher my name, [your deity of choice] kills a kitten.

Please, think of the kittens.

Comment: Beautiful postcards and washi and super clever way to hide the tea bag (this time I was lucky the package wasn't caught by customs but I do have in my profile a reference to please not sending anything edible nor even a tea bag because it usually turns into a nightmare). Thank you for a lovely swap (I will re purpose the wrapping paper ♥)

I always smile when I read this in your profile Contemplating the inevitability of death.! At your age, I had the same 'dislike' and it's not that now I like it but you'll see you just get used to it (and I know you could say, never but I did say the same at your age too ;-))..

khronicole on Dec 15, 2018:

I must say that I enjoyed reading your dislike section so much. I could so related to most of them lol, you phased them so precisely it made me smile. Oh and I never expected to see Utena listed on someone's Swapbot profile(you know it's not an anime site) I love that show, actually I love almost everything by Ikuhara. Ok that's enough randomness for now, have a nice day :)
