kristin writes: "I would love to say something deep and meaningful about how music influences me as an artist, but I really don't know how it influences me. I do know, however, that my artistic tendencies and my music taste are very similar. I tend to like a little bit of everything, and I change my mind a lot. In my life so far, I have gone through a phase of nearly every music genre, short of just a few - country, jazz/blues/swing, classical. I did the classic rock, regular rock, underground punk, metal, pop, hip-hop and rap, alternative, grunge, reggae, and everything in between. I've finally landed (more or less) on alternative/indie. My history as an artist is very similar. I've done photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, mosaics, mixed media, and more. I took every art class offered at my high school and nothing seemed to fit until I picked up jewelry.
My list reflects only a small portion of my current interests, but does not reflect my past interests... and who knows what the future will hold! I look forward to trying lots of new things in my life, both musically and artistically."

  172. My song is La Camisa Negra by Juanes because it's really upbeat and fun and reminds me of going out in Spain!

    I'm also back on major Iron & Wine and Wilco kicks, but that's another story entirely...

  174. I blogged http://loadsoffreebies.blogspot.com/2009/08/rikrak-studio-bobby-pins-or-necklace.html

    And I forgot to give the "why" in my favorite item post: I picked the ruby earrings because I love dangly earrings, and my birthstone is ruby. :)
