An "Unofficial" Blogoversary Giveaway Time!

Hello Friends!

I feel like having a giveaway!  This year will be my 6th year blogging :)  I think that deserves to be celebrated!


The giveaway will remain a mystery.  It might be something stitched, it might be something knitted and it might be something else.  You'll have to trust me and I promise not to mail you a frog ;)  I will try my very best to make whatever I send something special.

All you need to do to enter is leave me a comment with your favorite color.  That's it!  Easy, right?  I will keep this giveaway open until August 5, 2014 (Midnight EST) and I will announce one winner on August 6, 2014.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Mirabilia SAL 2015

Hello Friends!

Are you watching any stitching Vlogs (Flosstube)?  I just discovered them a few days ago and I have been enjoying watching other stitchers talk about what they are doing.

There are a couple of  Vloggers that I really like and thought I would mention them.

The first one I found is MrsMilkybarkid  and I am also enjoying Sticky Stitch.

Then I watched this video (6:13) and got excited because she will be starting a Mirabilia SAL.  I'm totally in but I will be blogging about it instead of doing a video.  I'm glad it doesn't start until January because I have no idea which one I am going to do.  Although I do have it narrowed down to few designs.........

September Sapphire Fairy

Sabrina

Petal Fairy

Elizabeth

Red


Which one do you like the best?  I'm probably leaning towards Sabrina :)  Although Red's dress is gorgeous and September Sapphire Fairy is my birth month!  Decisions, decisions!

Do you want to join along too?  Have you ever stitched a Mirabilia?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Creativ Festival 2014

Hello Friends!


Every year I say I'm going to go and every year I have to work.  I have planned way ahead this time and booked the day off.  I asked my Mom & Sister if they wanted to go too!  I'm so excited :)  This will be my very first craft show.

Have you been to this show before?  Are you going to be there this year too?  Any tips? I can hardly wait!  Only 3 months to go!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Composer of the Month for August is......

Hello Friends!

This post is probably only going to interest me and my friends from Soundtrack Fans, so I won't be upset if you pass on this one :)

I've loved Film scores since I was very young and the passion I have for them has just continued to grow over the past 35+ years.  You can imagine how excited I was when I found a wonderful group that understood this passion!  Finally I can talk to someone else that loves Film music like me.

I'll admit though that before I found Soundtrack Fans I was stuck in a rut.  I had my favorites and I didn't budge from them!  That got me thinking how much amazing film music was I missing out on.......and that led me to organize the Composer of the Month.  Basically each month, as a group, we get to nominate Composers and I use that "random thing" to select our winner.

Our Composer for August is Brian Tyler......


I am a fan of Tyler's scores already, he is currently my 6th favorite Composer.  I keep track of my stats over on Last.fm if you are interested in learning more or if you use it too and would like to be my friend :)


Each month we compile a Top 10 list at the beginning of the month and then a recap at the end of the month.  I like to share my stats from Last.fm as well.

My current Top 10 Film Scores by Brian Tyler are:

1.  Battle Los Angeles
2.  Thor:  The Dark World
3.  Iron Man 3
4.  Children of Dune
5.  Rambo
6.  Fast Five
7.  The Lazarus Project
8.  Alien Vs. Predator
9. Timeline
10. Partition

It's fun for me to see if that changes much by the end of the month.  Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't ;)

I am excited to listen to as many scores as I can find by Brian Tyler this month!
