My Angelic Notebook Cover and Other Things

Well, it's been a good week for me so far.  I gained two new voice students this week.  They both were taking lessons from competitors of mine (two different studios) and I was shocked at what my new students  told me.  Both competitors started these students out by putting on a CD and placing a microphone in their hands.  There was no learning how to breathe when singing, exercising the voice, or any other kind of techniques on vocal training.  Essentially, these studios were teaching how to sing Karaoke, and that's it!  It is amazing to me that they are just taking their money and not giving any training in return.  Learning to sing is like learning a new sport.  One has to learn how to sing, the techniques and exercise the voice, just like exercising the body.  Okay, I have said enough about this.  

On a lighter note, I have added another notebook to my Etsy site.     This time, I added a handcrafted angel to the cover.  We all need to be reminded that there are angels watching over us every day, protecting us.  I enjoy making these little journals.  I hope you like this one.

Your ideas are SO creative and GORGEOUS! I would think bridal shops would be enthusiastic about your ideas. I can only imagine what you would do with a wedding album cover. A 6x6 or 8x8 photo album might a good size to work with. And small purses would also be fabulous to decorate in your style. How about shoe decorations and garters? It seeems that money is no object for bridal and wedding items!

I'm quite envious of your musical talent, and you not only play but teach! I also play the piano in a limited way, but only for myself and the family! I could never play for audiences! I admire your work at the assisted living home.
