Wish Me Luck
Just a little post to share with you how excited I am that I have only one more month until Baby Li starts going to pre-school along with Miss Mia. This means I'll have a lot more time for writing, etsy, myself in general.....and singing.
Yes, singing. I definitely want to take it up again now that I'll be more baby free. In fact, I'm meeting with a Brazilian guitarist this weekend. We're going to see if perhaps we're on the same page with what we want to do musically.
Although I'm excited, I'm also definitely nervous because I haven't sung in a while and I want to branch out more in the direction of jazz though my training is classical. It's also hard to know if this Brazilian will be the right person. Finding someone to make music with is kind of like finding a relationship. Just because you're looking and they're looking doesn't necessarily mean the chemistry will be right....
Then again, singing has always scared me a little. I love to sing and people tell me I'm good at it, but it makes me feel vulnerable in a way I don't usually otherwise feel in life. But, as a friend of ours says, it's always important to go where the fear is....
By the way, I've been meaning to share with you for a while these fabulous vintage 1960s sheer raspberry gloves I bought about a month ago from Rock Zombie Oldies. The number 5 Bakelite ring is also from one of my favorite jewelry shops on Etsy, Petit Oiseau. The shop owner, Heather, just had a baby, so she's taking a little break, but I can't wait for her to come back because I love her stuff. The pink ring is one I made. Just for the record, I wouldn't actually wear both of them at the same time with the gloves as I think it's a bit too much. I may be funky and quirky, but I'm not that funky and quirky! ;)
Ok, wish me luck!
