Senator Giffords was transferred to the The Institute for Research and Rehabilitation or TIRR in Houston today to begin the next stage of recovery. TIRR happens to have some wonderful music therapists on staff, and music therapy was even given a mention in the video at the link below! This is WONDERFUL publicity for us! Music therapy is a baby profession, first used after WW II, so anything like this that gives us mention on a large stage is welcomed with open arms.

Hi, my name is Linsey, and I am addicted to reading craft blogs.
Now that we’ve gotten the hard part out of the way, I’ll introduce myself. I am 28, and a music therapist living in San Antonio, Texas. I’ve lived all over the state, but this is where I currently hang my hat…or dog’s leashes. I share my little corner of the world with Bailey, my 6 year old dachshund, and Piper, my 2 year old lab mix (?).
Music therapy is not only my livelihood, but also a passion. What is music therapy? That’s a whole post in itself, stay tuned!
Tricks of the Trade
Bailey and Piper will probably make many, many appearances here, even just as photo extras. I enjoy training them, and Bailey and I are about to start competing in Rally Obedience. Piper, well, she’s a work in progress.

Like I said above, I’m addicted to reading craft blogs. I spend time when I should be sleeping – or a multitude of other things – visiting linky parties and admiring others’ work, and thinking, “hey, I can do that!” I started this blog so I can join in those linky parties too, and perhaps inspire someone else. So, stick around. Read a little. Post a comment. Have fun!
