Business and Bells

First some business: Jessica from My World -Made by Hand awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award.  Thank You Jessica!  You should really check out her awesome craftiness.  Her blog is fairly new and is skyrocketing up!  My favorite of late is her Sock Monster. (really, go look at it!)

So I know I'm supposed to say 7 things about myself, but since I received this one before, I'll refer to one of the things I mentioned last time. I play the hand bells at my church.  I finally figured out the compression, uploading, Youtube thing, so....here are the two songs we played at Christmas.  I am the 3rd from the right.  The first girl.
The first one is Nutcracker Sweets
The next is Carol of the Bells

Nerdy info:  Our bell choir plays Four Octaves of Hand Bells.  I am usually G4 and A4 with incidentals.  That would be the G & A just below middle C on a piano.  We practice once a week.  I am by no means an accomplished musician.  I had a few years of piano lessons, and I can carry a tune, but that's about it.
If you have any questions, let me know and I'll try to answer them.
