Violin

New Items

I’ve added some new items to my shop today, as well as removed a few that I’ve decided to donate. The new items I added aren’t handmade though- they’re music books! I recently sold a few of my instruments so I don’t need all the books I had purchased for them. There’s books for violin, baritone ukulele, and guitar!

I’ve got a few other listings I need to update still today, so check back this evening and see what’s new!

Distractions

So if you visit often, you’ll see I haven’t made a blog post here in a while, nor have I added any new shop items. I’ve been distracted from my work as a crafter by my music practice. Not only am I still practicing my ukulele (and now I have 4 of them + a banjolele), and my mountain dulcimer (though not as often), I took the plunge and got myself a violin and took my first lesson on it on Friday. I was worried about how the lesson would go but my teacher was great, and sent me home with some homework. I see her again in 2 weeks and I can’t wait!

I’ve always loved violin/fiddle music and really wanted to learn to play but was afraid to try because all I kept hearing is how hard it is. But my time with my ukes has given me some confidence now that I can almost play a few songs and I decided to go for it.

So if its “quiet” over here, its because I’m practicing!
