Slackity Slack

This week has been a busy one and has me feeling a little burnt out which in turn leads to me slacking off on my crafty blog posts. I promise to catch up next week but for now I'm just going to share with you this fab musician Sondre Lerche that I discovered by pure accident this week. Enjoy!

The Day The Music Died

51 years ago today the world tragically lost  Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J. P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson (as well as pilot Roger Peterson) in a plane crash. Luckily we can always remember these three exceptionally talented individuals through their amazing music. Music that inspired many of the musicians and bands that would help shape the future of Rock'n'Roll.
