About Me

Hello there, I'm Livvy and I live in the beautiful English countryside.

I adore sending thoughtful, carefully wrapped surprises in the post. of course, it's a joy to receive mail too, and I put my absolute effort into creating a swap I think the recipient will love and enjoy. If I put a smile on your face, then its made my day!

I'm a big photographer and carry my camera everywhere. I enjoy knitting, crocheting, drawing, baking and generally love anything crafty. I recently started to study ceramics and am trying to learn weaving. I'm always looking for new crafts to try, so if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them :)

Favourites

I am inspired by children’s book illustrations from my childhood, such as Roald Dahl, Moomins, Paddington Bear, Alice in Wonderland and Beatrix Potter. I’d love to get into screen-printing and love paper cutting art, like the work of Rob Ryan. I hope to learn how to use a Gocco machine one day.

My favourite colours are blue, mint green, grey and mustard yellow and I have a mostly blue/black/grey/white wardrobe of clothes. I love to travel though I have a fear of flying, and my dream holiday would be to see the Northern Lights.

I have a fondness for birds and foxes, my favourite season is Spring, and my favourite flowers are probably peonies and iris. I'm a vegetarian, and I'm really rather a shy person.

Likes/Wishlist

  • Anything AIRMAIL related (envelopes/stickers, tags, stamps etc)

  • OWLS, Foxes and other woodland creatures (prefer the 'cute' depiction, rather than real)

  • ALICE in Wonderland (especially the non-Disney versions. I love unique Alice illustrations and generally anything 'wonderland' related)

  • BIRDS and birdcages

  • AMERICAN CRAFTS products (especially love Becky Higgins, Dear Lizzy, Maggie Holmes and Amy Tangerine) love the die cut embellishments brads, and stickers especially)

  • Feather designs

  • Pretty packaging supplies (twine,tape,labels,tags etc)

  • DALA horse (this is a big wish, I would love a wooden dala horse! I had one as a child which I loved, then lost, and would love another one, or anything with this design or motif)

  • Organic, natural and muted colour schemes

  • Japanese craft magazines (Cotton Time etc)

  • Graphics PENS/markers (especially black ink ones, I use these every day, and can never have too many!)

  • Lucky parcels or whimsy jars

  • EPHEMERA (Old papers, book pages, sheet music, tickets, photos...anything lovely to look at)

  • Lotta Jansdotter, CAVALLINI & Pip Studio

Dislikes...

  • Food items (unless those mentioned above)

  • Cheap beauty or bath/shower items

  • Disney or cartoon items

  • Hello kitty

  • Liquorice

  • Vampire or gothic styles

  • Overly girly or 'blingy' items

  • Earrings or rings

  • Cupcake cases (I have too many!)

Just a Note...

I take a lot of effort and care in putting parcels and letters together for my partners and enjoy reading their profiles over and over to ensure I send things I think they’ll love.

If for any reason there is something wrong with a swap I've sent to you, or if it hasn't arrived long after the swap deadline, please please contact me before rating so I can try to resolve the problem or re-send. I retain proof of postage for every swap I send.

Please note I am posting from UK and parcels abroad can take up to 5 weeks to arrive .

Comment: @Livvy you made my day easier and brighter than it was!!! It has been incredibly hot, I have been ill, the ashes are horrible with a second volcano that has over a week with a very dangerous activity, my SIL had a car accident this afternoon... then I got your lovely swap, and all seemed better. I loved every single detail you sent and it is absolutely accurate when you wrote in your profile ''I adore sending thoughtful, carefully wrapped surprises in the post''... It was!! Thank you so much for reading my mind too, I know my profile says a lot but not everything is specific but you did a great lecture :-) Thank you so much for a wonderful surprise! ♥♥♥

Comment: Hi Livvy, I just received your wonderfully wrapped package today! I haven't opened it at all. I am trying to be strong, and have hidden it away for Christmas. I'll comment again after I've opened it, but I just wanted to let you know it arrived safely (the outer wrapping tore a bit, but the inner bag was fine).

Comment: Livvy!!!! Your packages are so hard to open--because they are so pretty I just want to leave them sitting around for awhile. But curiosity gets the better of me...thank you for the lovely card and all of the gorgeously wrapped gifts. So happy that we are doing this swap!! Thank you ever so much. I look forward to chatting with you after we've both opened our goodies on Christmas morning. Merry, Merry Christmas!!!! :o)

Hi dear! I'm back on swap-bot after a few years! You were one of the most amazing swappers I met over here! I see you still love cello bags! Would you like me to send you some on a private swap? If interested pm me! Hugs from Brazil!

Hi Livvy,

I rated you back in November for the "Fill My Stocking November International" swap but I just wanted to say that I opened the presents and really loved them. I loved the stamp theme of all the gifts and can't wait to use everything. Thank you so much for a very thoughtful swap. I hope you have a very happy new year!!

YAY!! Guess who I got as a partner for the Profile Surprise Swap??!! :o)

thriftymermaid on Sep 11, 2016:

Hi My Friend! So happy to see you in the Christmas Surprise Parcel swap. I'm praying to get you as a partner as I have an overflowing bag of goodies for you that I've been meaning to send out all summer and I just keep adding to it every time I see something that reminds me of you. My summer job raps up on October 10 and then I will have more time to spend on catching up with people and Happy Mail. Just wanted to say hello and that you've been in my thoughts--I'm sorry to be such a bad communicator in the summertime. I hope all is well with you and that you've had a nice summer! Hugs.
