Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I live in a suburb near Stockholm, Sweden with my husband and two cats. They are my furry kids and I consider myself a cat lady. I work at a community pharmacy but will soon be moving to "big pharma" to try what that's like.

Reading and writing are both important to me, and from time to time I release some books through Bookcrossing. I'm also into geocaching and letterboxing and it's great fun! I don't do the "climb trees/mountains/abandoned buildings" parts of geocaching, but I love finding the secret hideaways.

Letterboxing is my favourite of the two, but there are few letterboxes that arent geocache hybrids in Sweden.

I consider myself a yarnie and I mostly knit and crochet but I can and will do many different crafts and I like to learn new ones.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: knitting (medium-advanced), crochet (medium), mixed media pieces
Crafts I Want To Learn: embroidery
