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.

I'm totally flabbergasted by the amazing IFM WTA prize you made ESPECIALLY FOR ME!!!
WOW! I have no words right now. Except for:
THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES AND MORE!
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!
Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!
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!
Thrive is such a great word. I hope you thrive in 2021. And, I love Nanaimo. I hope to move up that way at some point down the road.
Thank you so much for the CPG: Envies of Randomness tag! I love what you sent - thank you for looking at my profile! What a fun envelope you sent it in too. I enjoyed reading your note and I hope you enjoy the rest of fall and then the holidays!!! Take care and have a fantastic night! : )
