Yanni in Concert

Last night we got the chance to see Yanni live in concert.  I really don't know what we were expecting but it was so much more! 

What really stunned us was the sheer talent of Yanni's orchestra.  Each of the instruments was played with such ease yet the complex sounds coming from mere wood, string and brass were truly a thing of beauty.  Drummer Charlie Adams is not only an impressive percussionist but an amazing entertainer.  For his concert solo, he donned a Utah Jazz jersey and stripped that off to reveal a Real Salt Lake jersey.  In fact, the whole concert had a more personal intimate feel to it.

The cello, played by Alexander Zhiroff, brought a whole new admiration for the instrument.  And we have never seen the harp played with such fire and ingenuity as played by Victor Espinola.  Another favorite was Mary Simpson on the violin.  Each and every one of the musicians brought a beautiful piece of talent to the music.  My personal favorite was Samvel Yervinyan on the violin.  I cannot begin to describe the intense grace and refinement to which he made that violin sing with a combination of strength and softness.  

The passion of the concert was addictive.  Yanni brings a real sense of genuine love to his music and more than once my daughter leaned over to me and said 'he seems like such a sweet guy' or something very similar.  He mouthed the word 'perfect' to violinist Mary Simpson after one solo and my daughter nearly melted.  The absolute crush of emotions and senses that Yanni must have felt while composing the pieces was heartily conveyed at the concert.  It was an upbeat, serene, delightful experience.

We received complimentary tickets to this venue from our relationship with the One2One Network.  All opinions are strictly unbiased and honest.


We're so delighted that you enjoyed the show! Yanni is quite the performer and he surrounds himself with amazing talent!

Thanks for letting us know how you liked the concert!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
