Either music or silence, lately more silence. It's good for the soul!
It depends--It's rarely quiet around here, but I get most of my scrapping done in the evenings after the kids are in bed. If hubby is home, the TV is blaring, if he's not, I like it quiet sometimes or w/ a little music. If a page isn't coming together for me like I want, then I am easily distracted and browse the internet or do random chores and it takes me forever to get my pg done and then I wonder why?! lol!
Same thing here!! Same kind of daughter and two chatty sons. I guess I could scrap with noise in the background as long as it's not directed toward me. When I was in So. Cal, I was scrapping on a laptop in the midst of everyone in the living room. LOL.
I go back and forth between days when I'm designing or scrapping and there is absolute silence in the house (except for guinea pigs squeaking at me to get them veggies!) and days when I marathon watch tv shows in the background.
