New toys for the studio

It is imperative that the artist has the correct tools with which to do their art work.  I have a wide variety of tools at my disposal and even know how to use most of them.  I still suffer from Dreml-phobia and mostly it stays in it's nice little case, but perhaps someday.....  

There seemed to be a major flaw in my work space and I couldn't put my finger on it until the other day.  It's too darn quiet! Sometimes I enjoy the silence but I find I work better if there's some background noise.  Oh what to do...what to do?

Sam's Club.  I headed out in search of the perfect companion for me to work with.  And there she was!  Not too big...not too small....and most importantly....not too expensive!

I took home my new little flatscreen TV with a built in DVD player and then worried about the set up.  I worried for about 15 minutes until I had the cable attached and plugged it in and it took care of the rest for me.  She scanned all the channels and loaded the ones we get and then I tried out the DVD.  Everything worked just beautifully...and simply.  And simple is a very good thing.

Now that I have a friend in the studio to keep me company I find I'm able to finish some of the projects that have been patiently waiting for me.

So, I ask it just me?  Does everyone need some background chatter in which to function?

  1. Yup, Sometimes it's my favorite design shows on HGTV and sometimes Progressive Talk on SiriusXM Radio. We're women, we can't just do one thing at a time.

  2. I agree. I like to have the TV on low while I am busy doing things. The background chatter is just so comfortable and friendly. Makes the chores go quicker. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. I agree, too. It either blocks out the hubby or it entertains me - both work for me! Miss M
