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
My one little blog, Joyful Songs, from four years ago has grow to five music blogs and one education blog! Several side branches? It's just that I have many interests in the field of music and because of that, it was suggested to me to create a separate 'niche' for each area of interests so that you, the reader, may choose your favorites without skimming through the rest.
- Graceful Notes! ~ Christian Music
This side branch is one which will just focus on Christian music. ~ March 2010: Christian Music Poll ~ Blog Topics on Christian Children's Music. ~ April 2010: Choose your favorite traditional hymn in the poll this month! Blog topics will focus aroun

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.

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!
