I'm Kupla =Bubble, I was a 30-something mother of two little boys when I joined in 2012 and now I´m a 40-something mother of two teenagers. We are from Ylojarvi, Finland. I feel like a newbie since it has been quite a while since I´ve been here but I´m excited to start swapping again!
My user name is Kupla because it was the name of our first cat, who was very dear. Sadly he passed away a year ago and now Helmi (=pearl), the cat we got as a friend to Kupla several years ago, is our only cat.
I read a lot of books and mostly in English but sometimes in Swedish or German too and of course in Finnish.
When my children were younger, they got me to play Pokemon Go but now they´ve stopped and I still play. Not much, but a little everyday.
I also enjoy photographing, knitting, crochet, sewing, making cards (for birthdays and such, never done any atc's, for example), cooking and baking. I did bullet journaling for a couple of years but lately not so much. I get excited about new crafty things to do but after a while change to something else. I always make cards though and during the winter it´s a must to knit socks or crochet something. Currently I´m into junk journaling, making mini albums and scrapbooking.
I also like different countries and cultures and dream of travelling to faraway places such as Australia and New Zealand one day :)
