Recently I had a conversation with a friend who is in the creative business and we got on the subject of what we listen to while we work. Most of us on the Etsy NY Team work independently and don't have to worry about sharing sound space. We know that music makes us feel inspired, sad, energetic or relaxed but what do we listen to where we can work and concentrate and feel good. I posed this question to my fellow team members and received such a variety of responses.
The most popular response was NPR (National Public Radio) and the Moth, which are true stories told live. Camille of www.camilacrazut.com and Angie of Angie Colombo Jewelry both listen to the same programs and they both are jewlery designers....hmmmm..... interesting.

Christina from http://bowsprite.com/ along with many others listens to http://themoth.org/.
The one cool extra about this self assigned task was I checked out each responders website or etsy shop.
Christina's blog and etsy shop pleasantly surprised me. She is an illustrator of nautical items.
Reading that she likes to listen to the moth and seeing the nautical pieces just clicked to me.
Being on the water and listening to stories, seems like an automatic link.
Looking for a new radio station? Rosie of Hanky Blanky listens to http://www.thecurrent.org/listen I am looking forward to listening to
some music I haven't heard and discovering new bands.
From a few artists I received such precise responses I was so impressed.
Jenny who make the most beautiful bee jewelry and sells on etsy thru J. Topolski most enjoys the streaming videos on pbs.org.
It is interesting to see what people listen to and what they design. How do the programs influence and inspire their creativeness?
