How do you craft?



Hey guys, I was wondering. What do you do while you craft? Do you listen to music, watch tv, or do it in absolute silence?

Cause I've done all 3. Except I watch my tv online. I think that is an important distinction. Because I don't know about you, but whenever I flip on the tv, I end up watching something dumb, like Judge Judy. It's painful. But watching tv on your computer- that's completely different. It's watching tv with a purpose. You choose the show, and even the episode, and you barely waste any time on commercials.

Yeah, I've put a lot of thought into this.

My favorite way to craft is with friends. But that barely ever happens. So I spend a lot of time watching episodes of my favorite programs: Modern Family, House, Psych, The Office. While I was making the checkerboards, I watched every episode of Make it or Break it. EVERY.EPISODE.

Pandora also gets a lot of use. During Christmastime I listened to it so much, they were all "Guess what? Now we are going to charge you." I sat through your advertisements, Pandora. I think you made enough money off of that. But in the end I coughed up the $1, because really? It was worth it.

Whoops sorry I posted from my old Google account by accident!

I watch TV, either regular cable or Netflix on my TV (I have my account synced through our Xbox). Lately I've been re-watching episodes of The Office since they have the seasons on Netflix!

I also spend a lot of time watching shows online. Mainly programs that are on subscription networks that I don't have on my cable plan lol.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'm going to follow yours as well, it's great!

I watch TV. Sometimes via Hulu other times I just turn on the food channel or TLC (LOVE the cake shows) and off I go!

I am tucked (happily) away in my scrap space...so I have no tv or computer in there....but sometimes I listen to music....my ipod dock is 'docked' in there...BUT usually I forget to take my ipod in there (it lives in the cup holder of my treadmill cuz it makes a really pretty decoration for said clothes hanger....*ahem* I mean treadmill.....and if I forget it I do not run down the 2 flights (I live in split level so 1 flight = 5 or 6 stairs)of stairs to get it. Much too lazy. (read treadmill comment for confirmation....)

So long answer to a short question ~ usually I craft in utter and blissful silence :)

we watch lots of movies (no cable) and we have the blockbuster total access, so we get to pick what we get in the mail. I usually craft while watching tv, i need something to do with my hands, if not, I bite my nails, so crafting is my happy medium. If I'm in my craft room sewing or cricuting, I listen to music, punk rock gets me going. ~bry

Once I actually get crafty I'll let you know :-P But, I would probably listen to music most, and maybe TV on my computer sometimes. But that might be distracting. It would have to be an episode I've seen before, or a movie I've seen before.

I didn't know what Padora did that! Haha, that is funny.

I'd come craft with you...only I'd be scrapbooking! I miss you! Life is definitely the Pitts when your not around!

I watch TV online too! I mostly watch Bones, but since the Bubs goes to bed around 8, I nearly always have to watch it online later :) It's cool though cause I'm impressionable and need to keep away from commercials :)

Happy I found you. Blueberries, Michigan & Crafts - We got stuff in common! LOL!

When Christy and I used to craft together (thanks for moving by the way Christy), we are slightly retarted. We sing in many different ways to get a good laugh, we talk about things that don't matter and we watch movies. We also try to embarrass the kids by being as stupid as humanly possible. Oh, I miss those times. Now that I started crafting with my Sister In Law we just have the news on and get to work. I was slightly embarrassed the other week when we were crafting though because I started singing and making my singing noises. She gave me a weird look and then I longed for a little Christy time.

I usually craft in silence. I've tried the tv thing before but got too distracted with it. But crafting in silence also has its drawbacks. Sometimes my mind starts to wander on at least 10 other things I should be doing---probably explains why half the projects that I start, are only half way done...lol
I have a box in one of my closets with projects that need to be completed but I never seem to get back to them.

Blog hopping today!

I craft with the radio or CD on...but unfortunately I'm often outvoted by the littles. Now I often craft to retro Psalty the singing songbook tapes.

And p.s. - My hubby graduated from Univ. of Wash. Dental school in 08. I feel ya :)

Awww, Nikki. You can move to Utah to craft with me. I broke into song when I had Allison over here crafting with me last week and it just wasn't the same! She gave me a weird look! And I thought "WHAT???" This is what you do when you get crafty.......
