โ™๏ธ ABOUT ME ๐ŸŒˆ

Hiya. I'm Neea. I'm a 29-year-old lesbian. A big ol' dyke. I'm a sagittarius (not that that means anything) and single as fuck (which means I'm about to catladify myself). I'm currently a part time student of various things related to foreign languages and cultures, and a full time professional procrastinator. 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. โ™กโ™กโ™ก

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 while trying not to forget my Swedish. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

My favourite colours are pastel colours, especially violet, pink, mint and blue, and their combinations. :D โ™ก

๐Ÿ“– LITERATURE โœ๐Ÿป

Any gay romance with a happy ending will do. Annie On My Mind, Ash, Captive Prince, Fingersmith, Maurice, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda... feel free to recommend me some. :D

Also, Jane Austen and the Brontรซs.

Nonfiction is my drug of choice. I'm an information sponge who can't stop wanting to learn everything about everything on this earth. I love a good (auto)biography.

Also, Moomins are great. Children's literature in general is pretty neat.

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 instead... :D

๐ŸŽจ FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO โœ‚๏ธ

I like making things that I can use, whether it's woodworking or pottery. 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.

Recently I bought my first ever sewing machine and I'm eager to learn how to sew clothes I'm not too embarrassed to wear in public. :D I also really want to start weaving! You know, tapestries and stuff. I'm also somewhat 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 and crochet one day!

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!

๐Ÿ’Œ SNAIL MAIL & ART & CRAFTS ๐Ÿ–

Snail mail supplies: letter sets, letter paper, envelopes, postcards, address labels, envelope seal stickers...

Gel and glitter pens in fun colours!

Roses, floral print stuff, pressed flowers (harebells are my favourite!)

Glitter, sequins, sparkly things, holo everything!

Stickers of all shapes and sizes!

Washi tape!

Glanzbilder or kiiltokuvat or whatever those are in English. These are not the same as whatever people call "die cuts" though. I think googling "Victorian scrapbooking" will give you the right idea.

Patterned craft paper, origami paper and pretty much anything I can use in paper crafts.

ATCs for my (so far pretty small) collection! โœจ

Rubber stamps, clear stamps, stamped pieces of paper.

Surrealism and impressionism are some of my favourite art styles.

The art of Tove Jansson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, Artemisia Gentileschi, Janis Rozentฤls, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Claude Monet, Rudolf Koivu, Akseli Gallen-Kallela...

Feminist art, zines and literature. Please see my "things I don't like" for this bit though.

Zines in general! tiny ones, big ones, black and white, full colour, photocopied, fancy printed ones...

Sewing supplies! Leftover fabric, fun buttons, zippers, ribbon... all sorts of things! :D

Mamamoo! I don't have a favourite member, I love them all. โ™ก

I like all sorts of kpop groups but I really only follow BTS, Hyuna and Monsta X. Honestly I never know what anyone else is doing. Ask me how many members EXO has left and I will have to google it, hahah.

I don't really collect or trade photo cards or most other kpop junk... I like things that I can use for something: things like washi tape, stickers, postcards and such. Fan art is also nice - silly doodles and masterpieces alike. I often buy fan art prints at conventions - and sometimes I splurge on commissions - so feel free to add to my collection! โ™กโ™กโ™ก

๐Ÿ“ EDIBLE THINGS & ALLERGIES ๐Ÿ’

ALLERGIES & DISLIKES:

I'm not deathly allergic to anything, but dairy very strongly disagrees with my digestive system. However, if you're unable to send dairy-free chocolate in a candy/snack swap, regular ol' milk chocolate is fine. I'll swap it with my sister for some dairy-free stuff.

Hate is a strong word, but it's still not strong enough to accurately describe how much I flipping hate passion fruit. I also really don't like sour candies.

Raw chocolate is not really my favourite thing, but if it's the only dairy free chocolate you're able to send, it'll do. :-)

TEA:

Some flavours I really really like: chai, spicy teas, coconut, chocolate/coffee, apple pie, cinnamon apple, cinnamon, cardamom, Christmas-y flavour combinations, honey, caramel, caramelised pear/apple/etc, Turkish apple, vanilla, orange, cherry, blueberry muffin/pie, strawberries, cherry, blackcurrant and other berries... everything yummy.

Some tea brands I like: TAZO, Pickwick, Bigelow, Pukka, Clipper...

Tea flavours I really don't like: non-flavoured green tea, mint by itself, chamomille, passion fruit, anise and liquorice.

CANDY:

I like chocolate of all sorts! I especially like chocolate with nuts, peanut butter, salted caramel, coconut, matcha, liquorice, dried fruit etc in it! If you send me Laima chocolate I will love you five-ever.

Those yummy nougat and nut bars! Any vegan snacks in general. I don't care if it's got honey in it, though, so I personally classify those honey nut bars as vegan snacks.

Liquorice, liquorice dragees, salmiakki and pretty much any kind of candy. Strawberry, cherry, pineapple... all sorts of fruity flavours. Haribo Peach candies are some of my favourites! ๐Ÿ‘

Anything coffee flavoured is A+++

โŒ THINGS I DON'T LIKE โŒ

Contemplating the inevitability of death.

People who don't spell check their stuff, especially when they're writing and/or typing names and addresses on international mail, and then whine about their mail getting lost. เฒ _เฒ 

The general concept and existence of men.

Bullet journal stuff. You can send me weekday/month/calendar/icon stickers and other bullet journal-y things if it fits the swap, but I will most likely just end up regifting them as I have no use for them.

Halloween. Pumpkins. Horror.

Those moustache graphics that were everywhere a couple of years ago. I get an allergic reaction in my eyeballs every time I see them.

MINIONS. Get those yellow demons away from me.

Most geek stuff, such as video games, superheroes, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Stranger Things and so on.

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.

Mindfulness and forgiveness or whatever the frick it is that pinterest mums everywhere are into currently. Religion, god, Jesus and all his carpenter friends - we don't get along.

Homophobes can also heck right off. ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿป

If you call me q***r I will consider it hate speech and report you.

โš ๏ธ PLEASE NOTE โš ๏ธ

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. This will get done in a mail sorting center in another city. 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. Congrats on being petty, I guess?

Similarly, giving me a 1 when I haven't had the chance to offer to resend the swap says more about you than it says about me.

Comment: Thank you for the yummy looking chocolate bar! I am a huge fan of chocolate with a soft hazelnut filling so I can't wait to try this one. I'm going to save it for one of my cosy evenings where I snuggle under blankets and have candles on and ignore how cold and dark it is outside ;-) I love your packages - the Finnish stamps on them are always lovely :-)

Awesome, I am from Latvia ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ป originally, and you are learning Latvian , not an easy language I think Great that we are in the same swap

shirleyinCA on Sep 22, 2019:

I just wanted to add a thank you for the classy handmade envelope for the Mega Sticker swap. All those rows of washi tape, the Hello Kitty address label and one thin pink strip of washi to match it and accent the black and white envelope! Then lovely postage as always.

Nuisant on Aug 18, 2019:

Thank you so much for the lovely tea from the #Tea for Thee swap! I loved all of the flavours you sent me and they were wrapped so beautifully!

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 :)
