About Me

Hi there! I'm Veronica, 38, live in southern Sweden with my husband, my 10 yo son and two cats.

As you might guess from my username, the things I like include tea, crafting and dragons!

I have a whole cupboard full of tea and love trying new flavours. I like most types of tea, but some of my favourites are Earl Grey, English Breakfast, ceylon, chai, rooibos and flavoured black teas in general.

I love trying new crafty things as well. Right now, I am mostly into various papercrafts and crochet. I also started sewing recently and am trying to learn how to knit (not going so well, it's a lot more confusing than crochet for me...).

I have a little collection of dragons too, and I love fantasy things in general.

Other things I enjoy include cooking, baking, reading, writing (mostly short stories), gardening, gaming (board- and computer- games).

Favorite Crafts

Crochet is my big craft love. I started crocheting as a child, so this is a craft that has stayed with me for a long time. My favourite crochet things to make are doilies/mandalas, shawls and amigurumi. I mostly work with cotton yarn of fingering weight or lighter.

My other main craft is, of course, papercrafting. I like to make mostly anything happy-mail related, but my favourite is pocket letters. I just really enjoy creating the individual little cards and getting it to come together into a whole. I also like making embellishments like tags and altered paperclips, and recently I've been trying my hand at paper/mixed media ATCs.

I also cross stitch and have from a young age. This one is sort of on the back burner for now, other than one project I have in my queue, but I do enjoy it so I will probably pick it up again!

Like I mentioned earlier I also started sewing lately. I've been doing some simple clothes for myself and my son, as well as some furnishings. I'm interested in learning to make plushies!

I also try various other crafts here and there I make some of my own jewelry and I just started using polymer clay. Both are a lot of fun, too!

Favorite Books

Always a difficult question! I don't really have any favourite books per se. Some of my favourite authors include Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchet, Anne Rice, Deirdre Purcell, and Jane Austen.

Favorite Movies

My all time favourite is the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also have a soft spot for Disney/Pixar movies (my favourite since childhood is Beauty & The Beast). More recent favourites have included The Old Guard, Rocketman, Kingsman, some of the MCU movies, Love and Monsters. I don't really watch a lot of movies these days, it's so much easier to find the time for an episode or two of a tv show!

Favorite Television

I watch mostly sci-fi, fantasy and comedies. My (loooong) list of favourites include Babylon 5, Doctor Who, The Expanse, Firefly, Good Omens, The Good Place, Lucifer, Merlin, Once Upon A Time, Our Flag Means Death, The Sandman, Star Trek, Sense8, Suits, Superstore, What We Do In The Shadows, White Collar, The Witcher.

Favorite Music

I tend to go for a lot of 90s pop and rock (I guess I'm a nostalgic listener!), but also some modern pop songs, classic rock, classical and piano music, soundtracks, and sometimes other genres if I find a song or artist I like.

Some of my favourite artists/bands include Pink, Hanson, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Harry Styles, Pentatonix, Taylor Swift, Kesha, Damien Rice, Elton John and Queen

Favourite Games

Computer Games: Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Skyrim, World of Warcraft, Diablo, Detroit: Become Human, Dwarf Fortress, The Sims

Board Games: Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Calico

Some Other Favourites

Colour: Purple, and also anything pastel and rainbow

Food: Comfort food like stews, shepherd's pie, meatballs

Tea: Earl Grey, rooibos, chai

Chocolate: Milk or white chocolate with nuts, caramel or praline

Candy: Any kind of fruit gummies

Fruit: Mango, strawberries, blueberries

Animal: Cats, wolves and gorillas

Season: Spring

Holiday: Christmas

Quote: "We lose ourselves in the things we love; we find ourselves there, too."

Flower: Roses, tulips, violets, forget-me-nots, orchids

Some of my favourite things and themes to receive include: tea and anything tea related (such as teacup imagery), anything book related, papercraft/penpalling destash, quotes, written touristic postcards, blank notecards and postcards, die cuts, washi samples, dragons, faeries, mermaids, mythology (esp norse), fantasy, space, animals, vintage, Halloween, winter/Christmas, anything handmade, anything typical to your country/region.

I collect: Written postcards, napkins, dragons, enamel pins.


I appreciate not getting sent:

  • Scented items
  • Items smelling of cigarette smoke
  • Hibiscus and Jasmine tea
  • Anything spicy .

(These are all due to migraine triggers/sensitivities, so I'm really grateful if they can be avoided.)

I'm not religious so I have no use for overtly religious craft supplies or blank cards, but I don't mind some religious imagery or if you want to send me a card or item related to a religious holiday which you celebrate.

That's about it! I'm generally not very difficult and appreciate surprises. :)


If there's a kid swap or you'd like to include something for my child, Thomas is 10 and likes:

  • Anything drawing-related
  • Stickers
  • Plushies
  • Lego
  • Minecraft
  • Among Us
  • Roblox
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Mario
  • Red, blue and rainbow colours
  • Fidgets
  • Gummy candy
  • Any kind of blind bag or surprise egg

If you send me kiddie stickers and similar I will pass them on to my son since I have no other use for them.
