I am a music major with an emphasis in composition and film score. I currently use Finale Allegro 2007 and I have been having a lot of problems with it lately. It will start imputing notes randomly all by itself and erase all of my hard work. It gets really frustrating because I will fix it all and then it does it again. I end up just closing the program. This poses a problem because I have a semester project I need to start and I am also in the middle of a few smaller projects. So, I am looking to either upgrade to Finale 2011 or switch to Sibelius 7. Which do you think is better and why? I look forward to your input. =) Thanks!

This year was my 20th birthday. My parents threw me a wonderful vintage country themed party in our backyard. I have always loved vintage things, especially the forties and fifties. I decided that I wanted to have a dress to go with the theme of my party. So, I found a beautiful retro pattern from Butterick (B4919), cute red with white polka dot fabric, and set to work. I had one week until the day of my party. This is the end result...
I sewed my very first zipper... and it was an invisible zipper. I watched a bunch of videos online to learn how to sew an invisible zipper. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I DID IT... And, after hours of hand stitching, IT'S INVISIBLE!
I got my dress done in time for my party and I absolutely love the way it turned out. =)

One day I noticed that I needed a new wallet. So, I started looking for one to buy, but all the ones in the store where just not what I wanted. They were either too small, too big, or a weird design. I really liked the wallet I had so I decided to make one. I had some scrap leather that I had been wanting to use so i picked out some fabric to match and set to work. It took some trial and error before I got what I wanted but this is the finished project...
It came out just like I hoped it would and it is the perfect size, design, and color. The best part is... it was free! I love it! =)

These are some of my creations from my first semester in ceramics. The class was so much more fun than I thought it would be.
This is a goblet that I made my grandma for Christmas. The picture was taken before I glazed it. When it was finished, the flowers were a peach color, the leaves were green, and the rest was white.
We had to make a pair of shoes, so I made my bike shoes. They now sit on my dad's nightstand. He loves them.
My Utah Bowls.
I am loving ceramics and I'm taking it again this semester.
