Music Makes Me Happy ....

Good Morning my Lovelies.  Another beautiful day here on 'The Island'.  Hope your day is fantastic.

Music has always been a huge part of my life.  When I was very young, my Mama exposed me to all sorts of music, taking me to live musical plays, concerts, classical genres, dancing among others.  I was in heaven.  Studying piano, singing, traveling with concert choirs, singing in small groups has allowed me a real appreciation for the workings and effort of creating and producing musical productions of any kind. As far back as I can remember I have always, ALWAYS, been drawn to music in any genre, well ... except perhaps rapp.  Just can't seem to get a handle on it.  To me, life without music would be an empty void.

I whipped up this journal page with supplies from the lovely Yvonne who so magically appeared at my door bearing creative gifts when I had no supplies yet unpacked.  (Still unpacking!!)  I'm linking to Art Journal Journey, where the theme this month is all about music.  What could be better.

Do hope you are enjoying the moment and having a wonderful day.  Thanks so much for dropping by.

    It's wonderful how music make everything seem better on rainy days.
    I wish I'd learnt to read music when I had the chance as a child - now I just play my keyboards by ear instead.
