About Me

My name is Tina, I live in Nanaimo, British Columbia located on Vancouver Island, on the West coast of Canada. I have 3 grown children.

Hello 'What's your word 2021 - Jan' Swap

My word for 2021 is THRIVE! Resiliance, overcoming obstacles, rising from hardships, & feeling good about life.

Update: Nov 26 /20 Home from surgery but not to worry all swaps due up to & including Nov 27th are already on the way to you. I have a swap for Nov 30 that will be sent asap (I can't drive atm so asking a friend to mail). The next batch are the first weeks of December and they will be on their way soon too. I believe everything will arrive on time to the best of my ability and this is only a fyi in case of situation.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact me. Thank you in advance.😉

Update: With sadness on Nov 15 our sweet cat Akuro passed away, he was almost 11 years old 😭. Our other pets miss him as well, 2 cats (Dotty & Oscar 🐱) / & 1 dog (Fennel, 1 1/2 years). 🐶

I am really excited to meet new creative friends, send & receive happy mail and explore paper crafts.

I truly appreciate all the cards and the decommissioned cards are the only way to get the ones from casions after they are finished with them so they are perfect! Thank you for the fun extras as well!! Super cute envelope too, thank you for taking the time to decorate it, especially with me in mind!!!

Comment: This PC is beautiful, Love both the composition and the colors. Can't believe everything coordinates including the postage stamps! I would give more hearts if I could because both sides are completely decorated, Great swap.
Response: Thank you so much for the compliments. We've been partners before and I wanted to give you something different to add to your collection. I found some fun colours and a lot of fussy cutting turned into a very bright postcard. I liked the idea of it arriving in your mailbox! I put your word on the back bc I wanted to keep the flower collage together. I was happy with the result and you received my very first homemade pc! I hope Hope is creating a great year for you! Take care!♥️

Dear Tina,

I'm totally flabbergasted by the amazing IFM WTA prize you made ESPECIALLY FOR ME!!!

WOW! I have no words right now. Except for:


The peacock ephemera pocket zine mini flipbook thingy (what do you call it?) is absolutely perfect. I will be using it to stash some favourite pretties :-)

Feeling the love!

IFM, WTA January 2021. Hello Tina, thank you so very much for the beautiful envelope, crammed with surprises! You have really spoiled me, it's like having an extra birthday and I'm sitting here fondling my new Preciousses :0D I'm intrigued by the pin wheels, must google them! Once again, thank you very much indeed!
