    Talking Hobbies...what do you do with yourself?

    Hi again
    Just wondering what hobbies people have. I'm a paper crafter tho I try a bit of everything. I've been attempting an art journal, but today I'm not up to anything at all. Maybe I could make dinner later...

    So what do people do with themselves? I'd love to hear from you and maybe we can share ideas?

    I knit and read books. And when I can go to my granddaughters softball games.

    I read a lot, cook, love movies, and occasionally obsess on some craft or home improvement project. Lots of different kinds of things - as long as it's creative!
    My real passion is horses - I teach and train part-time, but I also spend a lot of my spare time at the barn.

    I knit, knit, knit and knit. Crochet on rare occasions, as well as cross stitch. Knitting is my passion. Even have the tattoo!

    I spend hours on my computer ...... I moderate here, so I keep quiet in the background watching for spammers and such. I also spend hours playing games that keeps my mind active. a few of us play "words with friends"... it is scrabble on face book.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    I play "World of Warcraft" quite a lot. Ok so I'm a geek lol. I have 'words with friends' , how would I join in with you guys? I'm also a little bit very addicted to Pinterest and I play Hayday on my IPad. I thank God for my IPad! (And I'm not being flippant!). I'm watching lots of catch up series' on Netflix. I try to walk a bit every day at the moment too in the hope that I can build up some strength.....not sure how that's working out!

    Baking. I love to bake. I do cakes on the side. I just recently last weekend was involved with an auction to benefit the American Cancer Society. My sister spoke and I put up for a custom designed cake. My cake auctioned for 350. I was pretty excited. Its to help children with cancer go to camp. So in June I will be designing a cake for a 3 year old. I love to make sugar flowers and work a lot with fondant. I also make my own bread sourdough bread. I love gardening although I am no good at it. I kill everything. Anything crafty really.

    Jewelry making thats my real passion, but I also do other DIY things. Right now am learning how to solder for my jewelry making and have gotten pretty good for a beginner. I love building things right now i'm working on cat runs for the walls, I am the type of person if I have the tools and some vague instructions I can figure it out. I really wish I had someone in my life to show me how to work all the tools in my garage from my recently passed grandpa so i'm no professional but i'm learning as I go, I just recently figured out how to work a dremel and spent hours cutting metal. Just finished my beaded cherry blossom tree it came out amazing! Really enjoy cooking but I don't do it much anymore because it's hard on me with the heat and standing. Addicted to Tumblr, pinterest and netflix but unlike most people I actually try the crafts on pinterest. I don't crochet or cross stitch anymore because it hurts my hands but really i'm into everything except drawing or painting because I suck at it and I have no patience. Oh and really into my animals not just loving them but rescuing strays and finding them homes.

    I still work full time, so there isn't much time for anything, plus I am exhausted and in pain when I get home from work.
    Doing puzzles relaxes me, I used to do those alot, but I have to do them on the dining room table and it's difficult for me to sit on the chair. I am planning on buying a puzzle table, which I can put in front of me, sitting in my lazy boy.
    I do 1000 and 1500 piece puzzles.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
