First Post

This is my first post, so I'm not quite sure how this works yet. My etsy store, "PianoForteDesigns," will be opening soon, so look for me there! I opened this blog so I could more fully explain my art and myself. I am a college student from Oklahoma. I'll be a Junior next year, but I still haven't decided on a major. I've been creating art for as long as I can remember in the forms of crafts and songs, so opening a store is an exciting prospect for me. I've been playing the piano since I was ten, so that inspired my store's name and the name of this blog. For those of you who don't have music training, let me explain the musical-nerdiness behind this name. Dynamics, in the realm of music, tell how loudly or softly to play. Piano is the dynamic marking for soft and Forte means play loudly. Also, my instrument, the piano, was originally called the pianoforte because it could play both soft and loud, something similar instruments had been unable to accomplish.
Well, that's a little bit about me, my instrument, and my art.
