I'm wondering, what do you usually have on in the background/listen to when you are doing your craft/art/creating?

"Back in the Day" when I was a youngster, (I wonder how many of you will understand this next part) I'd borrow cassettes from the library of old radio plays, The Shadow, Charley McCarthy, all of those, whatever was available.  I loved Phil Harris and Alice Faye...anyway, I'd pop one of those into the cassette player, put on my huge headphones, press PLAY, and do my embroidery while I listened.  Old habits, I guess.  I do the same thing now, just with more technology.  Fibber McGee and Molly are my favorites at the moment.

I also found something cool, and y'all probably already knew it, but audio books on YouTube.  I listened to a motivational book last night while I was putting a puzzle together online.

Manifesting Your Dreams...such an interesting concept.  If I ever had the courage to speak from my very heart and ask for what I truly want, I believe I have a bit of work to do before that could happen, but then again, that's just me standing in my own way... Interesting concept.

Play Nice!  xxoo


  1. Ah cassettes! We always made sure to have a pencil nearby. LOL I usually listen to a variety of music. Classic Rock, the 80's, country, whatever lifts my spirits. I knew about audiobooks, but not on YouTube. I'll have to check that out! Always nice to read your thoughts and what you are up to. :-) JKR

  2. I'm old enough to remember cassettes too! I had my first Spice Girls album on cassette. I think I listened to it until it became dust. :)
