Music Is Life Blog Hop

Welcome to the Music is Life Blog Hop

We sang our ABC's as children loud and off key!
We rocked out in our bedrooms with our friends to our favorite tunes.
We slow danced awkwardly to that memorable ballet with the boy we crushed on. We walked down the isle in to the wedding march as we married the man of our dreams. We sang a sweet lullaby to our babies as we rocked them to sleep. We sing our favorite songs as we drive the kids to school, annoying them the whole way! Yes, music is Life! It's everywhere in our lives! 
Join us as we celebrate the wonderful Life of Music!!

You should have arrived from Charmagne. In case you didn't and you need to start at the beginning,

Our instruments have all been tuned...time for the show to begin!

For my project I am showing you a tumbler I made for our music teacher. Every year, our traveling chorus team competes in Disney. So I thought this music note was more than appropriate for her! And then of course, our school name on the opposite side =) 

 Up next is PAM

For my project today, I am showing you what I've done with my boys school binders and notebooks/folders. Each of the boys had to label their stuff, so mom came to the rescue!

Logan wanted baseball and fishing or sharks....I found this great silhouette in the SIL store so used that for one, and the hungry sharks for the other. 

Jayce had to label his stuff but I couldn't just use a marker! haha! He's in 6th grade, middle school this year so I had to make it non-kid like he informed me :/ 

All of my vinyl I purchase online from Expressionsvinyl. I love their vinyl, their service is fantastic, and its just all around great! 

Here is the lineup in case you get lost along the way!
