JoyfulPamela's Lensography!

Updated on March 8, 2014

Musician, Music Teacher, Homeschool Mom, Writer, ...

Hello world ~ I'm very glad to meet you! Writing lenses here on Squidoo has been so much fun for me. I truly am enjoying writing and reading the wide range of lens topics throughout Squidoo. I am a performing musician and teacher who feels very passionate about music education. I work hard and have fun at the same time with homeschooling my children, also.

I have learned so much from so many people through my life! Now, I am hoping the work I have done will be helpful for children, parents, teachers, friends, and visitors! May God bless you in all your endeavors! :) Thanks for visiting! ~ Pamela

Rocket Mom Joyful Pamela!

Thank you to all my "Rocket Mom" friends who help and encourage me. You ladies are incredibly creative and kind!

Bonnie & Rocket Moms ~Thank you for the special present of being invited to participate in the "Rocket Moms Big Sister Group"!!

I gleefully joined Rocket Moms in the fall of 2009. I met many interesting, talented, hard working women who have helped me in numerous ways ever since! You can learn all about the RM's at my Rocket Moms Lensography. It also has a listing of all my assignments that I have completed with them. If you are a RM, please feel free to leave a link to your lensography there in the plexo so I may visit you.

Giant Squid
Giant Squid

Squish, Squish ~ I'm a Giant Squid!!

For visitors of Squidoo and my dear friends and family ...

~ just so you don't think I've totally lost my mind (only partially :D), you can read about what and who a Giant Squid is below. It may seem a small thing to some, but to my fellow lensmasters and I, it is a very special honor! ~ Getting involved in this "community" of interesting people has brought out something new in myself that I didn't know existed! I'm not saying I'm a great writer, graphic designer, webmaster, or whatever (although I'm surrounded by some incredibly creative people who are). What I am saying is that so many people have encouraged me to try doing things that I didn't think I could do. They have helped me to grow tremendously, and I am very thankful to them all!! I still consider myself a little Squidling because I have so much to learn about writing, web design, graphics, HTML, CSS, google, marketing, keywords, links, ............ and so much more!

Thank you especially to Megan, Robin, Bonnie, Rocket Moms, Giant Squids, and the other friends and lensmasters whom have reached out a cephalopod arm or tentacle to help! (See, I'm learning everyday. Who knew there was a difference between squid arms and tentacles? Not me until now!)

I became a Giant Squid 50 in January of 2010, a Giant Squid 100 in July of 2010, and a Giant Squid 150 in 2011!

I'm Glad You Came to Visit!

Stop by and say "hi" again anytime!

Squid Graphics Thanks to

Steve Thompson at Squidville!

      Are the stickers you have that look like they're for a vinyl record big enough to actually put on a record?

      Amazing gallery of your creative work here, Pamela. I can only hope to emulate such high quality productivity. We have many interests in common. I play the piano, clarinet, saxophone, Native American flute, and guitar. Still hoping to learn additional instruments. Excellent lensography. Here's to being the music!

      I love the way you used the little waving squid to say goodbye! You have indeed been prolific and organized. A wonderful lensography, but I still haven't found all the answers to your quiz. I've somehow missed which instrument you play, but I'd guess probably all of the ones you mentioned. And I am still only guessing who your favorite composer is because the one you've written most about didn't seem to be in the answers. Unfortunately, I don't have time to read all the music lenses tonight. I'll have to continue to guess my way through your quiz and see how I do.
