Having grown up in a home brimming with sewing notions and paintbrushes, Amy has a deep love for all things creative. On any given day, you’ll find her knee-deep in her latest creative endeavor, with projects ranging from sewing and crafts to home decor and kid-friendly ideas. Amy believes that everyone, regardless of skill level or experience, possesses the ability to create something beautiful, and Positively Splendid was born of her passion for helping others harness their innate creative potential.
I recently found a site that was selling casette cases that held little storage devices so you could make a mixed “tape” on the 21st century. I would love to make one for my husband. Quite a few songs bring a smile to our face.

Who is that girl? would be my song, by Christina Aguilara. For my parents 40th Anniversary my brother made a dvd for my parents starting with each of them as a child then, went on to the first child (me) for each scene there was a different song,mine was “Who is that girl?)Because I’m a daughter, sister, friend, wife and mother most of all. This made me cry. I too have many songs, that remind me of different times of my life. There are certain songs that remind me of each of my children, my husband… I love music & musical’s. My mother brought us up on musical’s. Last yr. when I was feeling down, I asked my family & friends what made them happy & all my siblings said watch a musical. That’s what made them happy. So I watched “It’s a White Christmas” and yes, it made me happy. Thank you for posting this story. I think I’m going to have my children watch a musical with me 🙂 Merlynn H. Wierzbicki
Amy-I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now and I have to say…..this is my FAVORITE post (and that’s saying a lot because I love sewing, crafts, etc.). If I told you that reading this made me cry would you guess that music has the EXACT effect on me? Like you, it’s been that way since I was a little girl. To this day I associate almost every memory with what songs were popular and what clothes I wore at the time 🙂
So I’m totally dating myself with this one but here goes…..I’m about 3 years old, on a “Sunday drive” with my family in our Grand Torino. Windows down, crammed in the back seat with my other siblings (no seat belt wearing back then-yikes!), all of us singing at the top of our lungs to our 8-track tape…”Shake shake shake. Shake shake shake. Shake your booty!” I remember thinking to myself, “This is a really happy time with my family.”
I do this thing for people I love called “Songs of Life”. Maybe one of these weeks I’ll enter it into the Saturday link party :).
Keep up the good work. I love your blog.
