Time for our first ever giveaway....*audience applause is heard*

I contacted Joshua Messick and am happy to announce that I am giving away one of his CD's - a $15 value!

Desire for Departure was released in 2008 and..."is an infusion of world, traditional, and new instrumental music featuring the hammer dulcimer. A musical tapestry of beauty, passion, and energy, it is regarded as sonically astounding." (Copied from

Josh's CD's are perfect for background music at your next party, to have on while you're doing those everyday chores, maybe while taking that long commute or studying for a test while working on that degree you're FINALLY getting!  *smiles*  They also make great hostess or birthday gifts.
