About Me

Hello, my name is Olivia. I love sending thoughtful, carefully wrapped surprises in the mail and have sent many parcels and letters around the world over many years.

I put lots of effort into creating a swap that I think the recipient will love and enjoy - if it puts a smile on your face, then its made my day!

I love anything crafty or creative. I’m never without my camera and enjoy lots of hobbies from ceramics and knitting to cooking and painting.


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 roses and sweetpea. I'm a vegetarian, and I'm really rather a shy person.

I am not a picky person, and am easy to please but prefer quality to quantity :)


  • Etsy faves, or anything inspired by them

  • Owls

  • Japanese or Korean stationery

  • Miniatures - I collect miniature trinkets and ornaments to fill old letterpress trays that I have hanging on my walls. Anything measuring under 2x2 inch is perfect!)

  • Washi tape

  • Scandinavian or Nordic inspired items

  • Target Dollar Spot items

  • Organic or Vegan products

  • Botanical illustrations

  • Dala horses

  • Hygge style

  • Local items unique to your country

  • Flow magazine, Cotton Time magazine

  • Seeds for my garden (vegetables or flowers - unique to your country even better!)

  • Chunky or Super chunky yarn

  • Gemstones or Crystals

  • Rifle Paper Co


  • 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: I'm in awe about your wonderful, wonderful parcel, dear Livvy (despite my very late rating). I could open it on Christmas eve, and was absolutely amazed by the fact that you tailor-made me some gorgeous wrist-warmers. I love them so much!!! And besides: The wrapping alone of all the goodies would have earned you a heart - gorgeous! :) Thank you and happy New Year!
Response: Ahh I'm so happy that you like the wrist-warmers! It was a pleasure to send this parcel to you - thank you so much for swapping with me! And thank you of course for the lovely rating and heart! xxx
Comment: Wow you spoilt me so much! Thank you
Response: I'm happy you liked your gifts! Thank you for the kind rating and heart! Happy New Year to you :)

adrianaclara rated for Christmas Crackers - private on Dec 12, 2017
Comment: It arrived yesterday afternoon! The computer was out of battery so I'm rating it today. Thank you so much Livvy, they're so cute! By the way I sent you the tracking number for the box I sent. I looked it and the website says it already "delivered so I hope it had really reached you and hopefully you liked. :) Unfortunatelly the classes ended last week so I couldn't give them to my pupils. I'm thinking of making an extra class next semester just so they have a chance to get them. :)
Response: I'm so annoyed they didn't arrive on time but I hope you can hold a 'second christmas' for the pupils just so you can use them! It was fun to swap with you again, thank you so much for the lovely rating and heart! xx

Comment: ❤ Dear Olivia, cool item indeed - such a perfect choice, yeah! Thanks so much for my "japanese" book according to my Amazon wishlist, gr8 joy!❤
Response: Really happy you like it! Happy reading! :) Thankyou for the rating and heart x
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).
