Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

So I’ve been thinking about making some really short videos for the blog. Like 30 seconds to a minute long. Not really tutorials. Just little glimpses of my daily life when I’m not online. Food might be featured but it’ll mostly be stuff featuring the girls or my hubby.

For the videos, I’d really like to get some music for it. I’m a fan of Ashley Jurgemeyer’s pop commercial songs. Unfortunately her website has been taken down, but you can hear one of her songs in this video.

So dearies, I need some help. Do you have any suggestions for sites where I might be able to get some Creative Commons licensed music for my videos? Or are you (or someone you might know) a composer who would be willing to let me license your music for my videos? I can’t really afford much. Free to cheap is the range I’m looking at spending. Especially since I want to get more than just one song.

Any suggestions you guys can throw my way would be extremely helpful.


Big panda bear hugs to all!
