Corner View {Hobbies}

I don't have a whole lot of time for hobbies these days.  I so wish I did.
I still do some.  I read.  I sit in the bath and read, though that's not so much a hobby as a luxury.
I take photos.  Sometimes I get to do this for work ... is it still a hobby then?
I love to be creative.  Luckily, I also have outlet for this at work.
 I'll take that as a hobby I get paid for.
I paint.  But haven't in a long time. 
I hope to in the next few weeks while I am on leave from work.
I write letters ... and post them in the mail ... I've just started doing this again.
I cook.  It's a necessity, sure.  But the types of things I cook make it more of a necessary hobby.
I knit.  But only in the winter.
I bought a sewing machine recently ... I hope to learn how to use it.
I pinterest.  That is probably the hobby I get to do the most.  Just for hobby's sake. 
I like to get crafty. 

I bought the stuff to do this craft last year, and then didn't have time to do it. 

This year ... I did.

 And it was fun. 
I only had one mishap ... with pliers and my finger.  But I lived.


This took me about 30ish minutes.  It wasn't hard.  Next time I'll make sure I have coat
hangers that aren't so strong! (this is where the plier mishap cam into play!)

I also didn't have to hot glue gun all of the ornaments like she suggested.
I was fully prepared to, and I couldn't pull them apart! 
It wasn't until the end when I was trying to twist
the two wires together that a few popped
off.  I just glue gunned them then
and there.  And it worked
fine.  I wish I had a
thicker ribbon
for the
top.

Live and learn ...

for me sitting in a bath would be a hobby, may be 'cause i don't have one.... your garland is great, i'm not good in making those things.

Pretty wreath! I'm glad to see that you still write letters. I was starting to think that my mother and I were the only two left who wrote "real" letters. (I picked an awful time in history to start a card business :-) )
