You have got to hear this Indie Musician

I have had one hell of a night trying to figure some stuff out about loading an MP3 player to my blog. Sadly I cannot figure it out. I now know how to put the mp3 player on as a widget but I can't get it to play the music I want. URRRRRRRRRRRRRRR so frustrating. I hate HTML codes.

So here is the deal I know an Indie musician and I wanted to feature his music here on my blog. I purchased and downloaded one of his songs to my computer but it seem like the only way to load it to an MP3 widget is to upload it back onto the internet and create a URL for it. I can't do that because of copyrights and I don't want to put his music out there for just anyone to grab up and use for "Whatever" they might want to do with it.

So what I am doing for now is leaving you all with a picture of the album cover and a few links within this post to Rmusic where his songs are listed for purchase. you can just click on any of the words that I have highlighted in this post to take you to Rmusic where you can listen to and download his amazing music.

I have also created a button on the left side of my blog that if clicked on it will take you straight to his music on the web. I will be back in the future to blog about Feldman and Wood's music when I get this darn MP3 thing figured out. In the mean time have a look at what the sound like by clicking here!!!

If there is anyone out there who knows how to fix my problem please let me know. I'm pulling my hair out here. =0)

Amigurumi Fun

I was planning on blogging today about some of the great Etsy shops that I have found while doing my x-mass shopping, but I started on a new project and got completely lost in it.

I thought I would try my hand at amigurumi's and found that they are a lot of fun to make and they came out so cute. I found a cool blog that has all these free patterns to use. So I went to town on making a few of them.

So here is some photos of my finished products. Hope you all like. I think maybe in the future I might open up another web store just for all of my crocheting. Until then I'm just going to have some fun getting crafty.

Lost but Found

Sorry everyone but I have had a hell of a month and things around my house got a little crazy. So I strayed from my blogging, Etsy and Twitter for a bit. I dropped off the Etsy forums and disappeared for a month, but now I am found. I am going to try and take some time every day to blog a little and work on my internet business in between the teaching and packing that I must do daily.

My Christmas was great. I had my family over for presents and dinner. I was excited to give my mom her family cook book that I made. She cried which shows that she loved it and all the hours of work were well spent.

I've spent the rest of my weekend sleeping, reading, playing with the kids and watching movies. It was a nice way to recover after being sick for over a week. The fun is over now and it's back to work and promoting my work as well. I hope to have a new giveaway to post up on here for Valentine’s Day. If anyone has any suggestions of what they would like me to have for my giveaway please post it here.

Tomorrow I will be on to blog about one of the great Etsy shops I bought some of my Christmas presents from this year.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday and resting well.
