Do you have background entertainment on while you craft? TV while you knit? Music while you sew?
Personally, I'm a huge fan of a period costume drama to accompany me for many a crafting adventure, especially anything Jane Austin. Nikki however wouldn't recommend Tess of the D'Urberaville's while trying to topstitch.
The last couple of days have been spent on a marathon cutting session in my office so it was time to get something other than my cup of tea to get me through it (though you do have to love playing with gorgeous fabrics for hours on end and getting to call it "work").
Firstly I checked out the new Philippe Starck series, Design for Life. Recommendation and links from Mizu Designs.
Next was catching up on some crafty podcasts. The Craftypod archives was a great place to start. She has some really great interviews that not only get you in the crafting zone but are also great food for thought.
Other great places to visit for some great craft listening is Craft Sanity and One Pretty Thing's podcast links.
How about you? What powers you through a mammoth crafting session?
