Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans and a belated give away….

I will list the details of the give away a little later on….

That is a line from one of my favorite songs.  It is Beautiful Boy by John Lennon.  I used to listen to it everyday while I was pregnant with my first child and only son, Truman.  I think about that line all of the time.  Isn’t that so true?   Hence the reason for a “belated” give away.  Sorry about that…

I have been thinking a lot about music lately.  I am really into my iPod and I just spent a $25 gift card at iTunes.  I could have spent 5 x that amount.  Easily.  I am always shy about the music that I listen to.  I don’t really know why, though.  So I am going to share with you my latest purchases that I keep listening to over and over and over and over…..

Keeping the Dream Alive by Mulberry Lane—here is the funny thing about this song.  It is a remake of a song that I listened to over and over and over and over again when I was in 9th grade!  It was by a German band called Freiheit.  I can’t buy the original on iTunes yet and I only have a cassette tape with it on it so I have to settle for  a remake.  I like it, though.

Only You by Yaz—Yep, straight out of the 80’s.

Womanizer by Britney Spears  Not so sure about her, but I love this song.

Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) by Beyonce

The Book of Love by Peter Gabriel—This one ate up a chunk of my gift card because I had to buy the WHOLE album just to get this song.  And I don’t like any of the other songs on the album.  I hate it when they do that!

If You Were Here by the Thompson Twins—another one straight out of the 80’s.

Fall for You by Second Hand Serenade

The a la Menthe by La Caution—This one is from the movie Oceans Twelve.  My bff hates this one and makes me change it every time it comes on.

Okay.  Enough is enough.  But seriously, I want to know what you are listening to.  This is a vital part of the creative process!  Good music or good TV or someone good to talk to while you are working!  So tell me, what do you listen to?

The give away will work the same way that my previous ones have.  Leave a comment (any comment) on any day and be entered to win.  You can enter once per day.  I will pick a winner next Wednesday.  What will you win???

A 6-pack!  Of patterns!  You can select any 6 patterns from my collection.  You can even choose Piece and Quiet Children’s Activity Book Pattern (aka Quiet Book) which I might add will be arriving in about two weeks in its new and totally exciting BOOK form!!!!! That’s right!  Yipee!  But more about that later.  Back to the give away.  If you want to look and see what you could win, click on the slideshow in the upper right corner and follow the links to my photo stream.  You can view a picture of each pattern.

Good Luck!  Remember to tell me what you are listening to right now…..

Love the patterns! I have a bizarre collection of songs that I listen to as well. I'm always all over the place. Little bit of this, and a little bit of that.

Terri said...

I am listening to the Tour De' France. But, my current music mood is upbeat - lots of steel-drum music and upbeat pop. I think it's because I feel like I need an energy lift, ya know?

I particularly like to listen to audiobooks on my Ipod. I especially like to listen to books that I have already read. I am currently listening to the Mitford book series. I do this about once a year My current book is A Common Life. I also love Podcasts especially Quilting Stash with Annie Smith. Many thanks!

I am soo not up-to-date on any new music so I sometimes stream Sirius Radio through my computer while i sew. However during most of my 'craft time' you can hear anything from Disney movies to Elmo's World in the background. =) Thanks for a chance to enter!

I am listening to an audiobook:
"Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. It is the first in a series. I have read them all, and now I am listening to them on my Ipod. I love to listen to the Scottish accents, it helps you get lost in the story.
