My Etsy faves
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 :)
I am inspired by childrenâ€™s book illustrations from my childhood, such as Roald Dahl, Moomins, Paddington Bear, Alice in Wonderland and Beatrix Potter. Iâ€™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.
Anything AIRMAIL related (envelopes/stickers, tags, stamps etc)

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 theyâ€™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.
