I update often, so please check for updated likes, dislikes and wish list.

Hello my fellow Swappers!!

My name is Tia and I live in New Brunswick, Canada. I'm in my early 30s, married and have a 7yr old daughter.

I'm a crafter at heart and if I couldn't create, I think I'd go crazy! I love to paper craft, sew, crochet, and make jewelry.

I am a health and wellness advocate and have lost quite a bit of weight since Nov. 2013. I also practice yoga regularly, walk, run and generally enjoy being active. Namaste.

I am a self admitted Cat-o-holic. lol I love anything and all things cats!

I hate to admit it, but I'm a total computer geek. lol I love facebook, playing games and watching streaming tv.

I am also a Christian and am very contemporary, tolerant and easy going. I firmly believe in equality for all mankind. :)

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions, need info for a swap or would like to see about doing a private swap.




Dishcloths, Amigurumi, Scarves, Hats, Purses, Granny squares and basically anything I get the urge to crochet.

I've been sewing since I was a child and love a challenge. I recently bought a serger and am loving it!! I currently make: Mug rugs, Clothing, Blankets, Cloth napkins, Stuffed toys, Cloth feminine hygiene products and anything else I get a pattern to!

I also love to create patterns off the top of my head or try my hand at sewing something I've seen online or someone wearing.

I love working with natural stones and make earrings, necklaces and bracelets. I really love making loom seed bead bracelets and making hand woven beaded earrings. I also wire wrap sea glass from the beaches here.

I really enjoy making pages for my daughter's album and my wedding album.

I adore taking photos! I live on the Atlantic Ocean and there is always something new and exciting to take photos of. I just love seeing a new flower in my garden and snapping an up-close shot of it to show off the beauty of the blossom.

ATCs & Handmade Greeting Cards I love using stamps and fabric on cards and ATCs.


Here are a few things I like:

  • Yoga, Ohm, Namaste themed items
  • Tie-Dye fabric, paper, etc...
  • Ethnic/Tribal designs
  • Boho
  • Feathers
  • Watercolors
  • Native American designs
  • Mandalas
  • Dream Catchers
  • Lotus flowers
  • Cats (photos, cartoons, big and small)
  • Grumpy Cat!
  • Cat Postage Stamps
  • Peacocks
  • Eagles
  • Sugar skulls
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red Foxes
  • Handmade & homemade items
  • Recycled projects
  • Any stickers suited for my 7yr old daughter, Anna. :) (My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, Monster High, Cats, Dogs)


  • Anything with Cats (small or large)
  • Foxes
  • Touristy (love pictures of other cities and landmarks)
  • Churches
  • Handmade
  • Scrapbook style
  • Funny (but not crude)
  • Natural wonders
  • Native American

    Guess I'm really not too picky. lol

I would LOVE anything off this list and can pretty much guarantee you a heart. :-D

  • Boho, ethnic or tribal items
  • Cat themed items. >^..^<
  • Bird themed items, especially peacocks and eagles


  • No junk food at all. I don't eat it or want it.

  • I really don't want anything to do with the dark arts, Satanism, skulls (sugar skulls are ok) or evil.

  • Nothing sexual or pornographic. No exceptions!

  • No crudeness or swearing.

  • I also don't like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy or any of the other made up Holiday characters.

  • I also really hate rudeness and lying.

  • FLAKERS!! Flaking is stealing. Plain and simple.

  • Non-Raters! People who don't rate make me sad. :( Please be kind enough to rate me in a timely manner when you receive a swap.


I try to get my swap packages out within a few days of getting assigned partners. I also like to check profiles to see what my partners like, so you might just get a profile surprise. :)

I also always take photos of what I send. If you don't get something in a timely manner, let me know and I'll send you the photo of what to look for.

If I ever send something that isn't up to standards (which I hope never happens!), please contact me before giving a low rating so I can remedy it. :)


Sadly, I do have allergies so please don't include any swap items that have the following:

  • Peanuts & Walnuts
  • Aspartame
  • Sage
  • MSG & other preservatives
  • Soy based foods
  • Wool
  • Cigarette Smoke
  • Latex (bananas, kiwi, and avocado contain natural latex, so none of those either)


My favourite tea flavours:

  • Orange/Mandarin, Chocolate, Peach, Vanilla, Orange Pekoe, Green Tea, Rooibos, Blueberry, Strawberry, Black Tea, Mint


  • No loose teas, please. Cloves, Nutmeg, Cinnamon; Chai; Bigelow Constant Comment; Star Anise (black licorice); Earl Grey


I HATE to have to make this list. :(
