NSCAD!

Well after a lot of waiting I finally got the news I wanted to hear. I have a plan for September! Back to school it is! I was accepted into the jewellery program at NSCAD (the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design). To say I am thrilled is an understatement. The possibilities are so exciting and I am so happy to be taking this next step in my career. Plus, as you can see from my last post, Halifax is fantastic.

More things that make it fantastic:

This amazing used bookstore on Barrington Street.


The Public Gardens


Theodore Tugboat! Oh... and the ocean!


Now, to find a pub that has chicken fingers....

Halifax and Studio Tours

I just got back from a fabulous trip to Halifax and I am already longing to go back. I just love everything about the city! Some of my favourite things include:

The market! A huge indoor market right on the water with everything you need, even some crafters!

Love, Me Boutique! It's nice to actually visit the galleries and shops that carry your work. This is the perfect little boutique with tons of wonderful handmade goodies from across Canada.
And of course, it wouldn't be a trip to a different city without a stop (or three) at the local candy store the Freak Lunchbox. I think of all the candy stores I have been to over the years, this one is my favourite.

I also found out that I was accepted into the West Hamilton Artist Tour (WHAT) that is happening Mother's Day weekend (May 7 & 8). More details to follow but you can view the website here
