About Me


Hello all, I only just recovered the end of Jan from Shingles and I have now tested positive to covid. Yay me! Lol I believe everyone have received my swaps & I theirs. Please contact me by email if you have an issue. Thanks

I will be signing up for swaps again as soon as I am feeling better I appreyour understanding!

I am recovering from shingles (added to other health issues) and I would like to extend my apologies for some late ratings to the last swaps I received and lack of group participation during this time.

Receiving your swaps helped brighten my otherwise dark time and I am thankful to all of you. ♥️ I will be working my way back to previous swapping levels and honour my commitments to all my groups. Thank you all & Happy New Year 😊

December 16/21 mail fyi

I received a swap letter today that had been delivered to the wrong address about a week ago & just returned to me today by that household. The mail address was correct thus a post office error, additionally I received a mistaken delivery last week for someone in another city?? I understand mail volumes are higher this time of year and mistakes happen so please know I will rate you when I receive your swap and if you have not received my swap please let me know in case it went astray! Thank you♥️

Update: I want to inform my partners that your mail is on it's way but may be delayed due to record breaking rainfall from a massive storm Nov 15, 2021.

"B.C. has declared a state of emergency and a mammoth cleanup effort is getting underway in the wake of devastating floods in the southern part of the province.

The flooding — which has displaced thousands of people and damaged property, transportation networks and other infrastructure — was caused by record rainfall last weekend, with many officials calling the storm that hit the province a once-in-a-century event."

It was surreal - roads ( even major hwys), rail tracks, dams etc were washed out cutting us off from the rest of our Province, our neighbouring Province & the US border. Even our highways on the island were closed. This has created a big problem with shortages in gas & items transported into (& out) of the Province & cities.

I hope my swaps will arrive in a timely manner but if not please understand they are on the way!

Also this can affect mail coming to me as well but I will rate as soon as I get your mail. ♥️

We have also had restrictions on travel & gas use to prevent from running out. Only 30 litter per fill-up & we have been asked to cancelation non essential travel & use public transport.

Thank you for your understanding. 🙂

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). 🐶

ddoherty6138 rated for CA : Rainbow #7 : Violet on Mar 10, 2022
Comment: Tina, you did a marvelous job creating a violet ATC for someone who is not fond of purple. It will look lovely in my ATC collection. Thank you for all of the cat goodies and the uplifting stickers. You did a great job on the envie as well. Thanks so much, Denise
Response: Yay🙂 I'm so happy you like my swap. The first thing I thought was how to make a "purple" atc without too much purple! Lol Making ATC's is fun to do although it does take me awhile for the right elements to come together. I also like to base my crafts on a partners profile to the best of my ability. Take care! Tina

Happy birthday month

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!
