Music I listen to while Crafting

One thing I love to do while I'm crafting (Besides drink tea. That's a must.) is to listen to music. My mom always had music going in the house when Taylor and I were growing up- usually 80's, or classical when we were doing our homework. I still love listening to classical music- it helps me think.

I have a variety of music I listen to now, but "today's hits" has never really been my thing. Don't get me wrong, I do have a few favorite popular songs, Such as "Happy" by Pharrell Williams, but for the most part I prefer other genres of music.

Here are my favorite crafting jams:

  • For Crafting: Film Scores, Owl City, or Celtic/Scottish Rock (I love Tartanic's music.).
  • For Art journaling: Owl City or Toby Mac.
  • For Cleaning my Studio: 80's, or Disney songs! Especially The Lion King, and Tangled.
  • For Blogging: Classical, I especially love Lindsey Stirling, 2 Cellos, and The Piano Guys.

I have a very odd taste of music, right? I listen to them all via Pandora, so it does throw in new songs every now and then.

I'd love to know what you listen to when crafting?

  1. I listen to a lot of different things. Toby Mac, Britt Nicole, Natalie Grant, Aly & AJ, Disney, etc.

    1. Toby Mac & Britt Nicole are two of my favorites. :)

  2. I often listen to audio books (probably Agatha Christie the most) when painting and I might even watch tv (or listen to it at least) when crafting.

    1. Oh nice. I love reading, but audio books have never been my thing- I can't concentrate on the books and do other things. ;)

  3. We have quite similar music tastes - like you, latest hits just isn't really my thing but I occasionally like some of them. For art, I adore listening to piano or classical music. Sometimes, I do like to switch it up to my Lindsey Stirling station, which also has a lot of dubstep on it, and I've discovered I quite like that when I'm in the mood! For housecleaning/general music listening with my kiddo we switch between Disney, My Little Pony (which has such catchy songs) and my Ingrid Michaelson station.

    1. We do, indeed! :) Classical is the best, right?

  4. LOVE your blog- and thanks so much for helping me find a new pipe band! I love Albannach & Clanadonia, but had never heard of Tartanic and was pleased to see their music on Amazon. I downloaded their Uncivilized album today.

    1. Thank you, Susan! I haven't heard of Albannach & Clanadonia but I will definitely have to check them out. I hope you like Tartanic!

    2. Saor Patrol is another- you can get their music on Amazon. I think I downloaded Albannach from their website, since Amazon only has one older album. Here's a YouTube of Clanadonia-


I love your comments!
