Christmas Morning

Every Christmas proves to be a showcase for the year's best in crafting, and this December 25th was no different. My sister, Josey, finally finished my 2-year-in-waiting quilt, Mom crocheted a cozy, beautiful hat and scarf for Miranda, and Mom also made baby Scotlynn's first doll. Runner-up crafts were Josey's home-made candles and my usual jewelry-making. Miranda began knitting this year, and although she didn't make anything for family members, I can testify to a gorgeous scarf she made for a friend.

The number of presents under our tree grows so much every year because we keep adding in number to our family. There is no greater blessing to me than a big family. Baby Scotlynn is the newest addition, as she was born in October, and my fiance joined us for the first time, too.

My finally finished quilt - it ties for favorite gift along with my tea set.

Assassins EP

I hope you'll take the time to give The Revelators' new EP a listen. Even more, I hope you'll download it! The Assassins EP is the fantastic new release from Ron Freeman and the Revelators. I had the privilege of singing backup vocals for this project.

Each song on the album is a love song from the perspective of each of our four successful presidential assassins. You will not be let down by Ron's storytelling. The warm, melodic arrangements beg for multiple listens as you delve into each beautiful layer of instrumentation.
