Love Songs, Lullabies and Giveaways

Hi everyone!

I'm super excited because today is the day I get to announce a new giveaway! And this giveaway is special to me because it features an amazing talent (I am a HUGE fan of hers) and she just happens to be one of the most darling gals you'll ever meet (I've bragged about her before here at Just Add Glitter and Stir), Emma Wallace.

I "met" Emma through the blogs quite a while ago. Her blog is Emma's Music, where she discusses being a musician, offers free song sketches (she'll e-mail you a digital copy!) and talks about everything from movies to life to her favorite Etsy finds.

Once I heard her music, it was instant love and I've been kneeling at her feet in adoration ever since. Emma's previous 3 CDs are on sale now at her website, iTunes and Amazon. I personally own her newest CD as well as her album "Temptation" and love love love them! She has also started her own podcast called the Rose Colored Radio Show, which is super awesome AND she's geeky too! *love*

From Emma herself: I know tortured artists get a lot of press and who can blame them? Romeo and Juliet are way more romantic than Benedick and Beatrice (at least more well-known). But I confess, despite being a songwriter, I've had a great life - just the normal amount of heartbreaks and fewer than normal sadnesses - so my music is far more lollipops and rainbows than sighs and tears. I write songs for people who want to see the world through rose-colored glasses, even if sometimes their glasses may get a little smudgy.

(A fan video made to Emma's version of "Would You" from Singing in the Rain, one of my favorites!)

Emma says: My latest album, Love Songs and Lullabies is inspired by my new baby who is cuter than a baby tree frog (and baby tree frogs are CUTE) and is a collection of covers and originals, instrumentals and vocals, designed to bring that sigh of, "ah, life is good and I feel so cozy right now."
I was lucky enough to get a copy for my girls and they love it! Zippy's already in love with music and Toot makes me play this CD when she wants to be a "ballybini" (ballerina). Here's a video of Toot playing "ballybini" to a song from Love Songs and Lullabies:
