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:
Dartmouth Mystery Map
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.
My plan for this space is to highlight things I heart, things I observe, things I could live without, things I… well, you see where this is going.
I grew up in a rural Cape Breton village, for which I have great fondness. Port Hood will always be home to me. I first came to Halifax 19 years ago to attend university, and I’ve been here ever since. Over the years I’ve called many neighbourhoods home, from South End to Clayton Park to Spryfield. Dartmouth didn’t occur to me as an option until a good friend moved to a lovely flat just up the street from the Dartmouth Ferry Terminal. I found myself spending more and more time in the City of Lakes until it became clear I was meant to be a Dartmouthian. From the moment I moved across the harbour, Dartmouth captured my heart. The love affair has been going strong for close to 8 years.
While this blog won’t be all Dartmouth all the time, it will often serve as a love letter to my scrappy little city.
