I always say it jokingly - but I collect hobbies. No matter what, I always seem to pick up something that's artsy, and go with it. I started making the most basic cards in Grad School, as something to do. I have taken multiple classes on card making, stamping, techniques, etc. I've been to Scrapfest 3 times.
After Grad School, I began taking Wilton Cake Decorating Classes. I aspire to some day attend the Wilton School and take Sugar Blowing, and other such amazing technique classes.
During October, I learned how to knit, and by did I! I thinking I'm going to take some classes in the next few months at the Yarn Barn downtown - it's time to start making more than long rectangles!
I've also always wanted to know how to quilt. Well - I've finally bitten the bullet and purchased a sewing machine! I had so much fun at the fabric store yesterday - and found out that some of my favorite scrapbooking companies are now making fabric! I'm excited to buy a giant folding table and create a sewing/crafting table.
I believe I need to choose some cheaper hobbies! But no matter what, it seems like there's always something for me to create - and to be able to find my own beauty - even if skies are grey. As Eleanor Rosevelt once said - “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
