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.

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!

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!
