Turn it UP!

I've been absent from the blogging world for awhile, forgive me. I tend to run out of things to say! But, I have a lot of new ideas for the shop and for the blog here. I'm excited!

I'd like for you all to be able to get to know me a little better as a person and a shop owner, AND, I want to get to know you all too!

Of course, creating things is my favorite. A lot of my creations are made with the help of music. I LOVE MUSIC! CAPS are not big enough to describe it! All kinds of music too - from Pink Floyd (my all time favorite) to Hank Williams 1,2 and 3, Tool and Type O Negative. I can even appreciate rap (mostly the old school stuff).

So many groups and songs are also very significant to me and instantly take me back to some point in my life. For example, the first album I ever had of my own (a cassette tape, of course) was "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." My dad bought it for me because I asked for a Beatles album. He came home with this and I was very unhappy in my 3rd grade mind, thinking this Sgt. Pepper guy was not at all associated with the Beatles. Dad convinced me otherwise and since then it's been on of my favorite albums.

The Beatles "Good morning, good morning"
My mom also has had some musical influence on me. She likes a lot of the same stuff my dad does, but she's more a motown/R&B type of girl. I remember her telling me about a particular song that she remembers her mom listening to and it's stuck with me.
Seals and Crofts "Summer Breeze"
And then high school hit, and I went from Seals and Crofts, to Type O Negative. I love both versions.

As much as I love music, I'm really pretty clueless about new music. I need you all to help me out! Who should I check out?
