Do you have to listen to music while scrapbooking? What kind?

I have to listen to something while I scrap. Usually it's contemporary Christian music from

If I'm home alone yes I'll turn the radio on in my room and it is usually Country.

If DH is home I just have the backround noise of the TV

I'm usually listening to the music in Jack's room from over the baby monitor. ROFL

But I've been jammin' to the 80s online the past two nights - I usually do that during the VCs, but not so much when I'm just squeezing time in to crop.

Usually tv is on in the background with whatever DH is watching. But sometimes it's kids music on the computer for Caleigh to listen to. Although then she makes me dance which is not too conducive to scrapping! Wink

If I had my choice I would scrap in a nice quiet house!

I like listening to Kaelan's "my first classical music CD". It has several of the well known classics on there and is soothing. I also love oldies!

I often forget to turn on music though and have been making an effort to lately.

I like this station that also streams on the web. It plays Christian and non-Christian (but clean) music. At night it can get a little too hard rock, but I still like it overall... I've heard Daughtry, Coldplay, and the like, mixed in with Reliant K, Jars of Clay, etc. I find them generic Christian as opposed to non-denominational Christian, if that makes any sense.

(I listen to everything, quite literally. But I'm trying to be less stressed in mind and more pure in thought, so I've gone back to searching for cleaner music. I like the movement within Christian music to have good music, that doesn't necessarily have to be a praise song or have Jesus/God mentioned as the focus in EVERY song- just a great message or fun lyric or awesome tune. It makes a nice balance.)

I love Nichole Nordeman, Nicole C. Mullins, Hillsong, Selah, Darlene Zschech, Point of Grace, Jaci Valesquez, etc. etc. Smile

I haven't heard of the first ones, but I do enjoy Point of Grace and the few songs I've heard of Jaci.

I mostly listen to the music channels on the TV predominantly the country ones, but if DH is home, I listen to the background of the TV, more than likely ESPN.

most of the time when I scrap, DS is up there playing on the floor while I work, so we listen to his "Sing along Songs" and he dances Lol If he isn't up there I listen to a big variety...msot of the time it is either pop, cont. Christian or 80s if I am in the mood.

I have been listening more and more to Contemp Christian stuff since some of the things (music and other stuff like talk and such) on other radio stations make me think "would I want DS to be hearing this in a year or two when he will understand, repeat, remember, etc???"

Normally I'm listening to whatever dh is watching on TV. If he's not home, the local pop/top 40 radio station works. Or our itunes (pop/country)

I usually throw on Napster in the background. I am all over the place with what I watch though. It depends on what mood I am in.

When I scrap I open all the windows to listen to the birds. I talk to myself too much when I scrap that I think music would distract me cause I would start singing along Smile
