Amongst my passions in life I hold music very near and dear to my heart. I am thrilled to share that passion with my daughter. Recently she had the honor of taking an after-school singer-songwriter club. Throughout the five months thee group collaborated and wrote songs. They presented their songs on a few Friday's ago as a group in a coffeehouse type setting in the lobby of their school. Their teacher, Ryan Peters, who is an accomplished singer/songwriter himself lead the group to an impressive level! To thank this wonderful teacher for his hard work in creating the club and being a true inspiration and role model for the students, I designed a music themed wall hanging and had all the kids sign it.
I used Basic Grey's Sweet Serenade collection for Moda. I appliqued a guitar and used the fun label prints by Sweetwater with the definition of "original." I also framed a piece of Bella solids fig tree cream with black borders to allow for a place for the kids to sign.
Here is the song my daughter wrote and sung about the importance of friends! It's amazing what touching lyrics this group of fourth and fifth graders wrote!
If you'd like to read more about the event please check out this article in the East Penn Press. They have recorded CD's to sell over the next few weeks with all the proceeds going to charity. What a wonderful way to see the music of these children benefit so many people.
