Oh! The places you’ll go….. Music, Music, Music!

So many musical phrases run through my head, but not out of my mouth. I’m the perfect example of someone who can’t carry a tune in a bucket. Oh well.

Being tone deaf doesn’t stop me from loving and using music in my creations. Just completed a set of denim chargers embellished with sheet music paper.
Music ChargersEach charger is different and full of songs:

The largest piece of music in my shop is the paper globe covered with piano music books for children .

The smallest items are 8th notes with magnets. Around the holidays I make these as ornaments also. Really cute.

The music I hear doesn’t quite travel to me feet either for dancing.  When our granddaughter began ballet classes I made ballerina mobiles where the dancers are cut from music paper.  They are so sweet.

In the spring I have a Mother’s Day gift package;

it holds a card for each season. Inside a lovely sleeve there is the sentiment written on music paper.

My mother is the song in my heart

“My mom is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune.”  by Graycie Harmon.

While replenishing my supplies, aka junk shopping, I also found original, REAL player piano music rolls!!!  The excitement stopped there; what can I do with these fragile thin papers?

 Wine glass votive shades?

Music, music, music….  What songs are you singing this morning?  Even if you aren’t singing out loud. 🙂
