I need a new hobby!

Gabe works nights Monday through Thursday so I have a lot of free time in the evening and need something new to fill it with. I already work over 40 hours a week so I don't want to get a second job or anything. I have tried painting but I am more all about instant products and it would take me too long to paint something and I am not that great so I don't want a million mediocre paintings in my house. I make cakes every now and then but that is a lot of work and leaves a huge mess. Recently I have made a bunch of flower hair clips, but I think people at work think I am weird because now I wear a different one every day. I need to find something creative and fun to do that doesn't cost a lot of money, and reading is not an option I have never enjoyed that. There is only so much reality tv a girl can watch.

If only your free time was during the day like mine we could hang out. I need a hobby too. Today I made Sugar Cookies. You could.. learn to sew? bake? play tennis? take a cheap into to photography class, or sculpture or something..

You could learn to coupon. It can be addicting and save you money! Um other ideas... maybe handiwork, like crocheting something and selling on Etsy for fun. Or learn web design.

I'm with Casi. Learn to sew. Once you get the hang of it it's kinda fun and you can show off for Gabe when you see him. I'm only learning to sew now, and it would have been handy earlier on in my marriage when Forrest was gone and I was home alone. Now I want to do it and there's no time :-)

Christopher and Robin said... about making hair bows for other people (like nieces) or selling them online. Try baking bread, or quilting, or gardening, that's an awesome one as a home owner, besides, it's the perfect time of year to get started. Family history? Hang out in the temple once a week? A new sport, like tennis or swimming?
