About Me

!! NOTE swappers outside of EU: please fill the customs form CN22 and write "no value". (That doesn't mean I don't appreciate your work ) I have some mail in the customs now, with no information who sent it, so I have no way of clearing it and getting my mail. If there is no sender information, they can't return it either.

Hello there!

Hi from Finland! I am Tuutis, a swapper, penpaller, postcrosser; mail has always had a central point in my life. It's my favourite hobby.

Other than that, I love music, both listening and playing. If you like, please share your favourite musician, or maybe few pieces from your latest playlist?

Favorite Books

I read nearly anything that is written nicely and clearly. Not a big fan of horror books any more, though.

I am always looking for new authors whose books to read.

I normally don´t like novels where the story jumps back and forward in the time as I have really hard time following it then :D.

Favorite Movies

Here again I like movies based on real life, true stories, but also enjoy comedies. I don't watch much films, as I loose interest very quickly, if there's something boring.

Favorite Television

I only watch television while doing something else, so it must be easy watching or very interesting documentaries.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, rubber stamping, card making, sewing and some crocheting and lino cutting.

I don´t :( like

  • skulls, bones, skeletons -themed things
  • sticky notes (as these often doesn't even stick :D)
  • hard candies
  • grapefruit
  • cosmetic face masks
  • teacher's stickers (saying "good job" etc.) or very childlish stickers
  • dark chocolate
  • cherries in chocolate
  • bubble gum without xylitol
  • note cards
  • old postcards or vintage kind "fake" vintage, that has machine made brownish back
  • very seasonal die cuts, like Easter, Halloween etc. (Christmas in small amounts is fine :))
  • green tea

Favorite colours

  • turquoise
  • greyish blue
  • also pastels, soft vintage colours
  • but in your craft to me, feel free to use what colours you like to use

Note Please

Please note that the mail from Finland takes normally around one week, but sometimes up to two or even four weeks to travel internationally.

I click the "sent" button when I already sent my swap and don't have it in my hands anymore. So the date does not always match (and is often one day later than the actual sending date).

I am easily pleased :) I don't expect the swaps be directly from my likes only as I am interested in seeing what others like to do and what colours they use and how, a s o. There are so many things I like, but don't know it yet.

However, the I don't like list is pretty permanent. I get migraine form dark chocolate, grapefruit and green tea, so I won't even try it.

Please, don't think you should send extras to earn a heart. I rate the swap itself, and if I think it's worth a heart, it will get a heart.

If any problems, questions or that kind, please message me :)

Wishlist/ things I like:

  • unused postcards (please, no touristy ones), especially I like music themed and illustrated postcards

  • colours and colourful things (like stationery, socks, mugs)

  • rubber stamps

  • marzipan

  • magnetic bookmarks

  • tags

  • doilies

  • ribbon

  • wax seal stamps/stamp heads (I have a flower wreath, heart and a star)
