Me and my likes

Hi, I'm Sanna, I'm from South East Finland. I love mail, and mail related things. Letters, reading, some crafts. Usually I participate in tea and profile swaps. I like private swaps, so if you are interested, please pm me! :). I can send you for example Moomin items, Finnish chocolates, teas, etc.

...Random things...

  • I like quality over quantity. It doesn't mean that you should waste your property; it means that one carefully chosen item is more precious than an envelope stuffed with random items.
  • I seem to have a nickel allergy
  • I like items, which are pretty and useful at same time.
  • Autumn is my favourite season. I love scarfs and mittens. Spring is lovely too. I like winter over summer.
  • I don't have my ears pierced.
  • I like light scents, berries are my favourites. Heavy scents make me feel sick.
  • I used to collect postage stamps, and pretty/unusual stamp on the envelope still makes me very happy.
  • We do not smoke.
  • We don't have pets.

Hand made items are more than welcome! It's always great to see lovely things some one has created by own hands. And I do appreciate the time you put for hand made things.

You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.
-C. S. Lewis-


...For tea swaps...

Teas I like:
♡ flavored and plain black teas, also decaf black tea. These are my favourites.
♡ flavored rooibos (bagged would be super!)
♡ flavored honeybush

My favourite flavours are orange, bergamot, tangerine and rose. I like also a lot of passionfruit, chocolate, red currant, cranberry, raspberry, vanilla and other flower / berry / fruit flavours. Please see my dislikes below.

I have an easy access for Nordqvist and Lipton, so everything else would be a very nice surprise! (If those are what you have, that's ok too. Suomi tee is one of my favourites. :))

Teas and flavours I dislike:
* chai or spicy teas, anis, ginger, liquorice
* herbal infusions with lemongrass or hibiscus
* cherry
* banana
* coconut
* chamomile
* lime

Please only invidually wrapped teabags.

If possible, please do not tape the teabags onto cards. Thank you.

What makes me happy

💗 Anything you think I could like (please look my likes / Instagram / etsy favourites / Pinterest pins), I do like surprises!
💗 soya candles
💗 ATC made by you
💗 Anything for my little daughters
💗 Red currant anything
💗 Ecological stuff
💗 Tea, cookies, chocolate...
💗 Stationery; especially good pens

💗 Scents: almond oil, berries, honey, mandarin
💗 Flavours: milk and dark chocolate (over 70 %), sea salt, almonds, berries, ...
💗 Colours: autumn tones; raspberry red, teal, shades of yellow,... but I love all colours.

💗 Jos olet Suomesta, niin kaiken muun profiilissa mainitun lisäksi tykkään Fazerin hasselpähkinäsuklaasta, Fazerinasta, superhelpoista leivontaresepteistä, Forsmanin mustasta Keisarin malja-irtoteestä, kotimaan matkailuvinkeistä, Merri Vikin punaselkäisistä Lotta-kirjoista, Annika Hiltusen kuvituksista,...

My family

I am a mother for two little girls.

My daughter Lilja was born in March 2011
💗 Her room has mainly shades of blue
💗 In November 2019 she wears European size 146, shoe size EU 37.
💗 She loves books, anything girly, anything with owls, games, computers also as a theme. She can read and write and knows a little bit of English.

My daughter Minttu was born in September 2016.
💗 Her room has mainly shades of pale pink, orange and yellow
💗 She wears European size 104 in November 2019, shoe size 27.
💗 She loves any kind of puzzles, drawing, bunnies and hedgehogs, purses, books.

In summer 2018 we moved and got a bath tub. My daughters love it, and any bath accessories!

My husband loves any spicy, but sugar free, snacks and nuts.

Please don't send me...

coffee, make up, any real animal/insect pictures, cat themed items, anything sports themed, usual souvenier stuff, religious stuff, skulls or Halloween stuff, bubblegum, keychains,...
I don't have use for them or like them. I'm not so much into items without any function.

About swaps

Please don't mention my whole name in web, if you publish photos of swaps, etc. Thank you.

I think that the idea in swapping is to make someone happy.

As our high postages are now even higher, I decided to use mainly economy class mail. This means that you need to wait your swap a bit longer. Travelling time inside Europe is about two weeks, to USA/Canada/Asia approximately from two to three weeks (for letters).

For packages from overseas / outside of EU: Please fill the customs form and mark items as "gift". It's very important, that you mark the total value as low as you can. Thank you very much in advance.

I do not give hearts for extras. I give hearts for swaps that seem to be sent with heart. :) I hope that also you will rate me so.

I reuse packaging and wrappings when it's possible.

I mark swaps as sent when I drop them to mail box / post office. Please notice that post office may not empty the mailbox on that day anymore and also that they stamp mail only on Mon-Fri, so the stamp may be from different day.

I´ll rate swaps as soon as possible when I have received them. We receive mail Mon, Wed-Fri (four days in a week). And I promise to rate. I hope that also you will rate my swaps and will let me know if my swap/tag doesn't reach you in reasonable time, or if it wasn´t what it should have been - so that I can send you a new one. Please PM me before rating 1, if you haven´t received my swap! Thank you.

If you are sending late, please contact me. Without communicating you will most likely be rated as 3. I do understand very well that there is life outside of swap-bot, but I do not understand negligence.

Unfortunately also I have been flaked on. Some swaps have been angeled by sweet tyshadragon, rhynah, Barsook and panfried88, thank you very, very much! 💗💗💗

Happy swapping everyone!

Comment: Kiitos kivasta paketista ja kirjeestä! Itse asiassa tuo swap-botissa oleva osoite ja sukunimi ei ole mun, vaan avopuolisoni, koska asun hänen luonaan. :D En voi vielä käyttää samaa osoitetta oman nimeni yhteydessä, koska irtisanon eri paikkakunnalla olevan oman nimeni alla olevan asuntoni vasta 1-2kk kuluttua. :D Monimutkainen juttu siis! :D Ja mitä vegaanisiin suklaisiin tulee, niin kaikki tumma suklaa on yleensä aina vegaanista. Esim. Fazerilla ja Maraboulla on todella hyviä, hienoon pahviin pakattuja ohuita suklaalevyjä esim. mintun, appelsiinin yms makuisina. Oma ehdoton lemppari on Fazerin tumma minttusuklaa! Lisäksi ruokakaupoissa myydään myös vegaanimerkki iChocin suklaalevyjä, joista cookies & cream on oma lemppari! Lisäksi on paljon muita merkkejä esim. isommissa Prismoissa tai Cittareissa. Eli valinnanvaraa löytyy kyllä, ja joskus saatan syödä ihan tavallista Fazeriakin. :D Kiitos myös laajasta valikoimasta Pukka teetä! Tuossa paketissa oli paljon makuja, joita en olekaan vielä maistanut. :) Myös ekstratavarat oli todella kivoja ylläreitä, eritysesti washiteipit oli supernättejä!

Hi Sanna, Thank you for your message on my profile. I'm glad you liked the loose tea tag.
