A Springtime Mix.

Tuesday I mailed out the mix I created for a mix CD exchange organized by Accordians & Lace. I really love making mix CDs. I typically organize the music based on some sort of theme. This one was a compilation of my favorite springtime songs. As always, I started with a playlist that was far too long to fit on a CD and slowly edited it down to some thing that really worked well together. I offered copies of the mix to some of my friends and ended up making a series of 4 pieces of album art using some old flash cards and flowery paper that I had stashed away. I really enjoy the set of them together. 


In case you're interested, here's the playlist:
