What's in a name?

So how did I come to choose Kawartha Beads as my name? Anyone who has ever tried to set up an email+blog+etsy account knows that finding an available id under all of those is difficult AND to have it be meaningful to you and your endeavours is equally challenging.

First of all I live in the beautiful City of Kawartha Lakes, about an hour outside of Toronto. Kawartha is an Ojibwa word meaning "shining waters" and I thought that the relaxation and feeling of peace that creating gives me is similar to relaxing by the shining waters of one of the many lakes in this region. Beads of course are my addiction and thus Kawartha Beads has been born!

  1. I think it's a great name! Especially once we know the meaning behind it. It's nice to see another Canadian on the net :)
