Most of you know me as a frugal mom of 2 living in the Twin Cities because that’s what I write about here (and I love doing it!). But many of you may not be aware that I’m also a local church musician and composer of piano music and am working hard on releasing my first CD of piano compositions. That’s what I’m sharing with all of you today.
I have created a project on Kickstarter.com to help me raise funds to release my first CD, and would love for you all to check it out!
Here’s my link:
Kickstarter is a website where anyone with a creative project can raise funds to make their project a reality. Many people have been able to release CDs, make films, publish books and more thanks to the support they’ve received from family and friends as well as strangers who have helped them via Kickstarter.
I’m hoping to raise $2500 to cover the remaining costs of producing my CD. Anyone can help, and there are rewards for all amounts $5.00 and up including mp3s, copies of the CD and sheet music of my compositions. If I don’t raise $2500 in pledges by October 26th, I don’t get any of it, and no one pays anything (that’s how Kickstarter works), so I’m spreading the word to everyone I know and who knows me so I can make this happen!
I don’t know many of you personally, but I know many of you are busy moms, too, and can understand the challenge of balancing life and work and family and everything else, while trying to pursue your own goals and dreams. It’s taken me a long time to get here – I’ve composed music my whole life but college, work and having kids have postponed my ability to focus on getting my music out there. Now that I’m here, I’m trying to prove that even a busy, hard-working mom with little kids like myself can still achieve a big personal goal and share her passion with others.
For me, two passions of mine are frugal living and music, and I appreciate all of you who read what I share on my site. Please visit my Kickstarter page, watch my video, listen to my song samples, and share it with others. If you have a personal dream or goal, I’d love to hear about it and possibly share it here on my site.
Thanks for reading this! -Lisa
