Meet Jennifer Daniels


Let me introduce you to the lovely and talented Jennifer Daniels . My favorite current folk musician.There is not a song on her albums I have that I don't love and know all of the words to.

A couple weeks ago a local deli hosted her in a wonderful outdoor setting with great food and beer giving me my third opportunity to enjoy her music live since I first heard her in Chattanooga, TN many years ago where I became an immediate fan. (She's that good folks!)

If you have not been so lucky you should do yourself a favor and discover her fresh folk sound here




My beaded folk music tribute.

Since I am not much of a writer and am much better with visuals and imagery I have also created an Etsy treasury inspired by Jennifer Daniels and folk music.  












          Peace, Love, and Rock On!

What I did on my summer vacation Part1

Woo Hoo! I am back from soaring through the skies!! 



It was a crazy exciting week that my family and  I started out by being slung 125ft into the air.







Then shot 420ft straight up a track......







.....Just making it over the top to plunge straight back down toward the ground.








420ft is 10ft taller than the tallest building in the town I live in!









That still did not make being pulled 310ft into the air and released into a whirlwind of drops and twists and turns seem less crazy and awe-some



 


Over and over again for two days of reaching new heights and turning upside down while sitting, standing, feet dangling in the wind.








Being rattled into fear in a beautiful maze of lumber...




....and even enjoying a few peaceful and silly moments riding a few tame rides like the YELLOW SUBMARINE!
Yes, we did sing the song while riding. :)
This started out our fun week. I will continue with the rest another day soon. In the meantime you can check out the treasury I was featured in and the treasury I created on Etsy since I have been back home and have fun!
