Welcome!

I love working with crafts, rug hooking, wool felt, penny rugs and stitcheries. Primitives are my favorites, but I also love to mix different styles of decorating.

Please sit back, relax and enjoy my blog.

My Son The Music Man

My son gave me a CD at Easter that he has been recording lately. It had 6 songs on it, 4 of which he had written. The most amazing thing was that he had completely done everything on the CD - written the songs, laid down the guitar and bass lines, played the drums and dobro and even harmonized with himself for a two-part harmony on some of the songs. I didn't listen to the CD until the Tuesday morning after Easter on the way to work. I was completely blown away by the fact that it was all him and nothing else. I knew he had talent because I've seen it over the years as he's played in several bands, etc. and I've been able to witness first hand the quality guitar player he is. But I had no idea that he could completely generate something from scratch that sounded like he had a whole band recording there with him. I am so proud of his accomplishments with this endeavor. I know he wants to take it further. I've listened to the CD a bazillion times since I first heard it and still cannot believe it's him.

The pride I have for him is simply amazing.

Oh, can't they be remarkable? We as parents are sometimes the last to get to experience their talents. My daughter loves to sing, and does so in choirs, but to this day I haven't gotten to hear her sing. Yep, they grow up to be their own persons. It's great! Congrats on your sons CD:)

And you should be proud!! That is wonderful. I'm amazed at how technology has influenced the youth. (me, not so much lol)... Wishing him huge success in whatever he does. Sounds like he will succeed in whatever he puts his mind too.

Hi Sharon,
Your love for your son comes shining through in your words!

What a wonderful talent to be able to create music! I hope he continues to learn and grow in his art form. With you to encourage him, I think he'll do very well!

It just makes your heart happy, doesn't it!
