⚠️ 𝑵𝑶𝑻𝑰𝑪𝑬 ⚠️

Due to Satan, the Finnish postal service has a list of countries where I can send stuff. The post office will not accept any mail to countries OUTSIDE OF THIS LIST. Not even if I yell at the post office lady (not that I would ever do that, because it's rude). If I just drop my mail in the outgoing mailbox, IT WON'T GO ANYWHERE until the country is on the list.

💌 𝑴𝒚 𝒔𝒘𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒉𝒂𝒃𝒊𝒕𝒔 💌

⇢ I only host swaps on which I'm willing to angel for a swapper should someone flake on their partner.

⇢ Not all my swaps allow newbies with no ratings to join them. If you're a total newbie and therefore don't meet the rating criteria of the swap, feel free to message me! I'll gladly do the same swap privately with you. :)

⇢ 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 across the street, from which it will be collected around 4pm from Monday to Friday. However, it being the outgoing mailbox instead of the post office, the stamps on anything I send will usually NOT be canceled until a few days later, if at all, especially now that the pandemic is making a mess out of things. Naturally this is 100% out of my control, so please don't be a petty dingus about it.

⇢ 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.

♐️ 𝑨𝒃𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒎𝒆 🌈

Hiya! I'm Neea. I'm a 30-year-old les🐝an, a Sagittarius, single as heck and about to catladify myself. The only thing I'm missing are the cats.

I'm currently an artisan student with a focus on textiles and all things yarny. Feel free to send me yarn and quilt kits.

Some of my endless number of hobbies and interests are snail mail, drawing and painting, all kinds of crafts from embroidery to woodworking, everything yarn-y, reading, writing, enjoying nature, traveling abroad and learning about different cultures and languages.

I read mostly non-fiction, memoirs and biografies, gay romance and a shit ton of fanfiction. 😂 I also like poetry! Do share your favourites with me.

I'm currently learning Korean while trying not to forget my Latvian. 🇫🇮🇬🇧🇸🇪🇱🇻🇪🇪🇰🇷🇯🇵🇩🇪🇪🇸🇫🇷

🎨 𝑻𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒔 𝑰 𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒅𝒐 ✂️

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.

I like to sew, crochet and do all kinds of stuff with yarn. Like weaving tapestries. And I hecking love embroidery. (Yes, I am indeed a 97-year-old lady inside a 30-year-old woman's body.)

When I have the time and the patience I digitally draw things on my drawing tablet.

💌 𝑺𝒏𝒂𝒊𝒍 𝒎𝒂𝒊𝒍 & 𝑨𝒓𝒕𝒔 & 𝑪𝒓𝒂𝒇𝒕𝒔 🖍

I LOVE YARN. Please send me all kinds of fun yarn. If it sparkles somehow, I guarantee I will love it.

Embroidery thread!

Quilt kits and fabric scraps are awesome. Feel free to dump all your leftovers in my mailbox.

All kinds of sewing supplies! Leftover fabric, fun buttons, zippers, ribbon, sewing patterns... all sorts of things! :D

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 and other blue/violet flowers are my favourites!

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" or "German scraps" will give you the right idea.

Patterned craft paper, origami paper, book pages and pretty much anything I can use in paper crafts. Even things like newspapers in different languages! 📰

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

Rubber stamps, clear stamps, stamped pieces of paper.

Surrealism and impressionism are some of my favourite art styles. Also female portraits in any style.

Indigenous art, textiles and photography!

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 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...

🍓 𝑭𝒐𝒐𝒅 & 𝑨𝒍𝒍𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒊𝒆𝒔 🍒

ALLERGIES & DISLIKES:

Dairy and I don't get along.

I really don't like sour candies.

Hate is a strong word, but it's still not strong enough to accurately describe how much I flipping hate passion fruit.

TEA:

I don't mind receiving loose tea a) in its original unopened packaging with ingredients listed and b) if it fits the swap criteria. You can send me loose tea as extras in any tea swap though!

Some flavours I really really like: earl grey, citrus, anything chai, spicy teas, coconut, chocolate/coffee, apple pie, cinnamon apple, cinnamon, cardamom, Christmas-y flavour combinations, honey, caramel, caramelised pear/apple/etc, Turkish apple... everything yummy and spicy. I do like trying out some weird combinations, too!

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

Not a huge fan of: non-caffeinated infusions, hibiscus, rosehip, chamomille, passion fruit.

CANDY:

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

Those yummy nougat and nut bars! Any vegan snacks in general.

Liquorice, liquorice dragees, salmiakki and pretty much any kind of candy. Eucalyptus, mint, lemon... strawberry, cherry, watermelon, pineapple... all sorts of fruity flavours. Haribo Peach candies are some of my favourites! 🍑

Anything coffee flavoured is A+++

❌ 𝑻𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒔 𝑰 𝒅𝒐𝒏'𝒕 𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆 ❌

Contemplating the inevitability of death.

People who misspell my name, or people who straight up give me a new name because they've never seen it before so clearly it can't be a real name. ಠ_ಠ No, my name is not Neena, Neera, Negra, Neaa, Nea, Nena, Naea, Naenae, Nee or Nae. If you're literate enough to navigate this website, I expect you to be able to write four letters in the order they're supposed to be written in.

The general concept and existence of men.

Bullet journal stuff. I don't hate it, but I have no use for it and will most likely just regift it.

STOP SENDING ME THANKSGIVING AND HALLOWEEN STUFF. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO USE FOR EITHER.

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, male superheroes, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Stranger Things and so on. I don't mind female superheroes though.

Steven Universe and other tumblr popular kids' series. No thank you.

Cosmetic products. I don't mind sheet face masks, but all sorts of wrinkle cream or lotion samples are just wasted on me.

Faux progressive politics. Don't be so open minded that you let your brain fall out.

...speaking of which: 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. Miss me with that free-the-nipple nonsense. Actual feminist art and yonic imagery is fine (as long as it's made by women!!). Think second wave. Think Guerrilla Girls, Valerie Solanas, Pussy Riot and all the unladylike screeching hags that men love to hate. I love rocking the boat - or, more accurately, hijacking the ship, killing the captain, throwing his crew into the ocean, freeing their hostages and abandoning ship (and then sinking it or setting it on fire). I'm an ugly hairy dyke who has no patience for fun, watered-down and non-threatening "hobby feminism" that requires no critical thinking whatsoever, or includes and/or coddles and/or makes excuses for men, and my activism reflects that.

Homophobes can also heck right off. 🖕🏻

If you call me q***r I will consider it hate speech and report you. Don't send me stuff with that word in/on it.

Comment: First, I really liked the origami-style folded ATC envelope, made out of a Japanese magazine page with the note tucked into the fold. That was a fun thing that I've never seen before. And finally, thanks for the "Encircle the writing of an imagination" Dali-inspired ATC. Thank you for making this package for me Neea. :)

Comment: I??? Loved everything about this??? 😭💕 The cover you made for your ATC was so creative and gave me such cool vintage-y vibes from seeing Doraemon all over! I was soooo hesitant to open it up because I was scared of messing up the cover itself but once I opened it up...dude, I'm in LOVE with the ATC! I immediately knew who it was the second I saw the pill and the little quote around it, and ugh the feelsssss. I love Kaneda so much even if he was a little POS in the beginning 😂 Thank you so much for the ATC!! 🥰

Re the Tea & Stickers, do they have to be different stickers? I found something that matches my partner's interests, but sadly it's just a sheet of twenty stickers, but only two designs.

bethe on Oct 24, 2020:

Thank you so much for being an angel for Letter Set Swap #5! I LOVE the kawaii letter sets and sticker sheet! I really appreciate the extra book pages and the beautifully decorated envelope as well. I will be keeping the stamps from Finland you used on your envelope too😊💖😊💖

Hi, Neea - your ATC (with 2 ATC blanks decorated in the same way) have arrived for the ATCA WTA in April! Thanks - very nice (glad you told me how you made them, too - that's always helpful, when you decorate with more than one or two mediums. Oh, and, no, the world isn't ending! haha

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:
