Play It Over and Over

I’ve had a few irons in the fire lately. One of these irons has kept much of my focus over the last six months, and today it flipped out of my hands and burned me in the process. I may have a permanent scar. Perhaps I’m slightly bitter melodramatic.

It’s the remaining irons I’m grateful for. Now that I have one less thing to obsess about, I can throw myself into some really exciting projects. I just completed the first major edit of my children’s book. It still needs a lot of work, and it’s really more a personal project than a commercial one. But, you guys? This is crazy exciting for me.

I’m happy to report some brand new Buttons ‘N Baubles pieces will be ready for the shop very soon – maybe later this week. Expect to see some Dartmouth love incorporated. Chestico Museum in Port Hood has agreed to carry some of my new items in the gift shop this summer. Tourists will be putty in my hands. I think. Maybe. We’ll see.

Most importantly, Summer of Street Meat has officially launched with stops at two food stands in Hubbards – we had a hit and a miss. More to come on this subject once we’ve had a few more visits (and lbs) under our belts.

So as it turns out, keeping busy is a family trait. Some of my talented cousins (Brennan, Gordie, Kelly Jean, and Mitch MacDonald) have started a band called Company Road. Their first song has been rolling around in my head all day, helping to soothe the burn.

Things I’m Working On

I have a little something up my sleeve and will be re-opening my Etsy shop soon. Some Dartmouth love will make its way to the shop, involving this:

I can’t divulge the details just yet. My first creation is a gift to a friend, and I would very much like it to remain a surprise. I’m just waiting on a few supplies to arrive before I get going. Last summer, Chestico Museum featured some of my jewelry and accessories in its gift shop. If they want more items again this year, some Port Hood love will be featured too!

Time to get crafty y’all.
