Great question!! I think I'd rather live in a world without music. As much as I love the expression of music, Books are how we document & remember events of the past. If there were no books, there basically would be no written word. We would forget, and relive many of the mistakes of the past.

*I love to read, and it's also a great escape into other real or imaginative worlds.

Natasha said...

Chrissy! Sooo great to see you again...this is SUCH a hard one...I agree with you about books...it keeps our past...I keep thinking without books would we return to drawing on cave walls?? I LOVE to read I am right with you about that!!!!!! Is there anything better than the journey you can go on when you read??

i cant live without books, id have to live in a world without music!

Natasha said...

Moonangelnay - what fun to see you here!! A second vote for the book world - to be honest I couldn't live without books either...oh imagine....but I love music soo much...tough choice

Trina said...

This choice makes me want to put my hands over my ears, sing "La, la, la" and run away and hide in the corner. I don't think that there is any possible way I could choose. My life would be so diminished without either music or the written word. I can't tell you, though, how much I truly appreceiate the reminder how much they both mean to me!

BTW, Natasha, I just visited your shop, and its lookin' good. Anyone lucky enough to own one of your journals is a fortunate person indeed. They are beautiful, clever, well-crafted and thought-provoking. I wish you tremendous success in your re-opened shop.

PS There are two of us at my house having way too much fun with glitery, sparkly, colorful things this week! Woot, woot!

Natasha said...

Trina! I KNOW this one was tough...but I like the way you looked at it ...that was awesome.I don't even know how to thank you for the comments on my shop...they mean the world to me..truly, truly thanks! AND I CANNOT WAIT to see what you and your fabulous, sparkly partner in crime create for this week's theme YAY!!

I'd definately rather live without music than books. Of course if I still remembered music I'd probably be committed for humming strange things in public but then I'd have more time to read!

Natasha said...

Salvaged - what's shakin? How are you? Good to see you! I'm with you I was thinking if I was lucky enough to remember music I'd just have it in my head all the time ...more time to read would be glorious!

Erica Lea said...

Do I have to pick? :-) I don't think music could ever be entirely silenced, unless we couldn't hear. People would still sing and hum, and find a beat in everyday items... And books are essential in so many ways... This is a trick question, lol!

Natasha said...

Erica Lea - how great to have you here! I love your thought process I agree I don't think we could stop ourselves from "making music" - we'd drum our fingers or play the spoons and books are magic - trick question...LOL Love it how you made me laugh!!

Som's Studio said...

I can't live without either :-\

jodi said...

Couldn't live without books. I have to agree with Erica. I think people would still figure out how to make music.

Natasha said...

Som's Studio - so great to have you here! See I went back and forth with it all day yesterday and it's hard I feel that way then I choose then I feel that way LOL no win situation.

Jodi - how are you? Great to see you - I totally think Erica hit on an awesome point ...I think music is inevitable we can't help ourselves - actually I think music and writing and art are inevitable...more food for thought today as I just thought that that LOL

I'm good, got caught up in a project. I'm pretty sure that somewhere over my head is a scientist studying whether crazyness has a critical mass and what happens when you reach it!

Natasha said...

Sal - how did you know about my critical mass project???? LOL ... I love this ..I will never think about craziness the same way again..are you happy with how things went with the project?

SalvagedExpression said...

I think I'll take door #3. Neither happy nor unhappy the whole thing kind of petered out, would the mad scientist have it any other way? :)

Jenjen said...

I can't choose...My house(thanks to my kids) is filled with music every single day. And books, well - we all love to read in my house, too. Our day won't be the same without Music or Books!

BTW, I heart your store. That's totally you - Making Impossible Dreams possible!

I have 2 gift ideas for my 21 year old!

Natasha said...

Jenjen! I'm so happy to see you! How are you? Your house sounds magical..I can see why neither would acceptable to give up. Thanks for the kudos on my shop you made my night! I was totally worried about that tagline - I never want to come across egotistical...I mean I want to help people make impossible dreams come true any way I can ...anyhoo please let me know if I can help or make anything special for your 21 year old!!

Greetings!

Both options are too horrible to contemplate, so I shan't. :-D

I shall, however, respectfully disagree with 'books as only historical repository'. There are plenty of songs, both ancient and modern, that document the history of the times. And considering the impossibility of removing all personal bias from historical recountings, probably not that much different in accuracy as an aggregate.

As to your shop - LOVE IT!!! :-) Have already added two journals to my wish list - the Castle and the Impossible Possible Hippo. Do you also create them w/o the prompts? I can see having copies, not only for play with the prompts, but as journals to document my patterns, recipes for scented items, Journey entries, blog posts, etc.

One teeny thought on your banner, which is, as ever, my opinion only. The text of it seems a little fuzzy to me and by being backed on white, seems to be a bit more free-floating than you perhaps intend? Was thinking that maybe taking the green of the hill and having that, or a lighter tint of it, go all the way across, then putting the text on that, to both anchor the text and tie your wonder-full Hippo in more firmly. (SOOOOO happy that you used him there! :-D)

Imo, your tagline is not egotistical at all. If you are worried about it however, I'll pass along a variation of some advice I was given recently - maybe change it to "Helping Make Impossible Dreams Possible" - or words to that effect. Adding the 'you' factor in would help tie it to folk even better, as in "Helping You Make Your Impossible Dreams Possible", but it feels like that might be too long, and the beat seems off. The idea feels good tho'; I'm sure you can find a way to make it work if it calls to you. :-)

Anyhoo, so glad to see your shop back up, your Hippo firmly online as he should be, just waiting to Inspire the World, and a Kyool Castle to add to it! :-)(Seems like there are Stories about both, just waiting to be told. :-D)

BB & GF! :-)

Janie said...

I can't choose! But if I absolutely had to choose...I don't think I could do without music.

Natasha, your shop looks awesome!!!

aquamaureen said...

Books have been my external friends for as long as I can remember . . . and music pulses in the deepest part of me. . . can't contemplate being without either.

Natasha said...

Bird! Thank you so much for all the feedback!! Yes all the journals you see can also be blank so please let me know if you'd like a blank one. As to the banner and tagline thanks for all the suggestions I agree with the color on the background and will change that - green was a great suggestion.

Janie - thanks so much

Aqua I know this was a tough one - life without either wouldn't be half as much fun!
