If you're sending me anything larger than a thin, light weight letter from OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION, please use a customs form to declare the contents and value of your shipment! If you don't do this, I will have to fill out a bunch of forms myself, and then pay 2,90โ‚ฌ before I receive your package! It costs you nothing to fill out a form before sending your stuff, but it will end up costing me a ridiculous amount of money in bullshit fees if you neglect to follow the rules and regulations of international shipping. Please think of my wallet. :-(

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

โ‡ข Not all my swaps allow newbies with no ratings to join them. If you're a total newbie, or an established swapper with a wrinkle in your rating, and therefore don't meet the rating requirement of the swap, feel free to message me! I'll gladly do the same swap privately with you. :) This is currently on hold due to the ongoing apocalypse.

โ‡ข Speaking of rating requirements: no matter how much you beg and plead, the rating requirements in my swaps will not budge. At all. Ever.

โ‡ข I always send my swaps on time, and I mark them as "Sent" on the day I've put stamps on 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.

โ‡ข Similarly, giving me a 1 with no prior communication and/or when I haven't had the chance to offer to resend the swap says more about you than it says about me.

Hiya! I'm Neea. I'm a Finnish les๐Ÿan in her 30s, a Sagittarius, single as heck and about to catladify myself. The only thing I'm missing are the cats.

Through my profile I might come across a bit... hm. Snarky, or rude, but I promise I'm nice. ๐Ÿฅบ I've had people (both in real life and online) tell me that I gave them a very intimidating first impression, but that later they realised that I'm just... a socially challenged marshmallow. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I'm currently an artisan student with a focus on textiles and all things yarny. Feel free to send me your leftover fabric, yarn and thread. ๐Ÿ‘€ I like to sew, crochet and weaving all sorts of things like tapestries, rugs, blankets, scarves... and I hecking love embroidery, both "old school" granny style cross stitch stuff, and the modern kind that the crafty side of instagram does.

Besides textile and fiber related things, my hobbies include painting, drawing, paper crafts, reading, writing, snail mailing, enjoying nature, traveling, roadtrips and learning about different cultures and languages. When I have the time and patience, I digitally draw things on my drawing tablet. โญ

I read mostly non-fiction of all sorts, memoirs and biografies, gay romance, historical fiction and a rather worrisome amount of fanfiction. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I also tend to re-read my favourites from my teenage years again and again and again... even if they've aged like eggs and milk rather than fine wine.

I also like poetry! Do share your favourites with me. I'm hesitant to call myself a poet yet, but I do write some myself. My secret dream is to publish a whole book of them! Maybe one day...

I love learning foreign languages! I'm currently learning Korean while trying not to forget my Latvian and everything else. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

CRAFTS:

I LOVE YARN. Please send me all kinds of fun yarn. Pastel colours are great. If it sparkles somehow, I guarantee I will love it. I prefer cotton, wool of all kinds, linen, bamboo and other natural fibers - no acrylic or polyester, please!

Embroidery thread, quilt kits and fabric scraps are awesome. Feel free to dump all your leftovers in my mailbox.

Snail mail supplies: letter sets, letter paper, envelopes, postcards, address labels, stickers, washi tape...

Gel and glitter pens in fun colours!

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! ๐Ÿ“ฐ

Rubber stamps, clear stamps, stamped pieces of paper.

In general, I like making things I can use. I've made a ton of wooden spoons and spatulas and other kitchen tools in a women's woodworking class, and a couple of ceramic pots in a pottery class a couple of years ago. I always love to try new things, even if I don't end up loving it.

ART:

Alt text

Surrealism, symbolism 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, Artemisia Gentileschi, Janis Rozentฤls, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Claude Monet, Rudolf Koivu, Akseli Gallen-Kallela...

Kids' art! I've received some kids' drawings in swaps where a drawing or a sketch is required, and I love it. Especially if it's something weird or random.

ALLERGIES & DISLIKES

Too much dairy will make my insides explode. A little bit won't hurt, and I will probably still try whatever treats you send me (and let my will-eat-anything roomie have the rest), but dairy free things are very much appreciated!

I've been a vegetarian for nearly 20 years, half of it dairy free, so consuming too much animal products does not... end well. I do eat sea creatures a few times a year if I really crave some sushi or smoked salmon. So, shrimp flavoured crackers: yes. Beef jerky: no.

I really, 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 & COFFEE

Yes please: I drink mostly black tea, I like most flavours I've come across. Chai, cinnamon, spicy teas, peach, strawberry, orange, mango, honey, herbs, Christmas-y flavour combinations, vanilla, caramel, hazelnut, breakfast teas, Earl Grey... pretty much anything goes. Rooibos is also nice. Recently I've got into those flavoured instant coffee portion bags - I'll drink anything with hazelnut, vanilla, caramel and other delicious things!

Tea brands I like: TAZO, Pickwick, Bigelow, Pukka, Twinings... I'll try anything I can't get in Finland!

No thank you: green tea, hibiscus, chamomile, rosehip, passion fruit, decaf, detox/diet teas, Nordqvist, Lipton, non-compostable bags

EDIBLE THINGS:

I looove chocolate with bits in it. Doesn't matter what it is, nuts or berries, gooey caramel or something else entirely. Rum or punch? Bits of peppermint candy or liquorice? Sea salt and caramel? Heck yes. If you can get me a shipping container's worth of those coconut Ferrero Rochers, I will love you five-ever.

Crackers and cookies? Yes please. I love things I can dunk in coffee or drown in hummus and guacamole.

I love nuts and dried berries and other healthier snack options. Even if/especially when they're covered in chocolate, hahaha. I also like seaweed snacks!

I LOVE LIQUORICE. Any colour, sweet or salty (but I do prefer the salty kind).

I don't eat a lot of gummy candies, but I love Haribo's peach candies. Those are sooo good.

Favourite candy and chocolate brands: Brunberg, Panda, Laima, Kalev, Ferrero, Vego, J. D. Gross, whatever brand makes those round Mozart things.

Items related to Thanksgiving, Halloween, 4th of July and other American holidays.

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. เฒ _เฒ  No, my name is not Neena, Neera, Negra, Neaa, Nea, Nena, Nene, or Naea. 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.

MINIONS. Get those yellow demons away from me. ๐Ÿ‘น

Most geeky stuff, such as video games, superheroes, Marvel, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Stranger Things, Steven Universe, Adventure Time and so on. I'm, like, super not into it. Anything related to these will just be regifted to my roomie. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Cosmetic products. I don't mind sheet face masks or chapsticks, 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. ๐Ÿ™„ I'm a hairy, unladylike lesbian who has no patience for fun, watered-down and non-threatening "hobby feminism" that requires no critical thinking whatsoever and includes, coddles and/or makes excuses for men, and my activism reflects that.

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

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. The same goes for b----, c---, f----- and any other nasty word that a nasty person might use to describe me. I have not "reclaimed" any of them.

Comment: Oh my goodness Neea, your Hyuna PC was so perfect! It was so festive and fit Hyuna so well :D My daughter adored 4 Minute and Wonder Girls, not to mention Hyuna (which is a no brainer). We admire how much she has carved out a space for herself and is paving the way for so many to follow โคโคโค Thank you for spending so much time and effort on such a beautiful postcard (and then actually being able to let go of it to send to me!) โคโคโค
