Thats’s Not Trash!~Thats Crafts! #MFRWauthor #hobbies #crafts
Welcome to week 6 of the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. Each week we have a topic.
This week’s prompt is…My hobby is … When I’m not writing.
I nearly shouted in joy when I saw this topic! Hobbies? Boy, do I have hobbies!* Looks int the nearly bursting craft room.*
I am not a hoarder.. nope I’m sticking to it… I am a recycler and crafter. I see beauty in all things trash… well not all things but most. I use to throw it all in trash bags in a closet in my hall until I had the perfect project or time to make something with it. Of course, then I could never find what I was looking for.
When we remodeled, a craft room was on my wish list. My husband took the old back porch we never used, enlarged it and made me a combo craft/ exercise room. He also made me the perfect work table as well. The table is big enough for my sewing machine, serger and cameo to sit out all the time and still have room to work. It is also big enough to cut out fabric on.
I use the kitty litter in the big yellow buckets leaving me buckets I can’t seem to toss as well. When I had to unpack that closet, we tore out for the remodel I came up with a way to reduce my hoarding and organize as well. It also uses up those buckets. ( I knew they would come in handy and save me money on tubs!) I marked each one with the items I collect such as plastic creamer bottles, Jars, you get the Idea. When each bucket is stuffed full, I can’t keep more of that item until I use some out of the bucket. The buckets stack neatly behind my exercise equipment.
I also have my craft supplies. I have those plastic drawers I keep those in.
Sewing and Crochet are my favorite hobbies. I collect dolls of all sorts and like to sew for them, I am starting a craft page and website to sell my goodies on in the next couple of months.
I can’t throw away old clothes since I see projects. I have tubs of jeans, t-shirts, assorted sweaters. Same rules apply. These tubs get full I have to let go the others. I have plenty things planned. I have a set of placements cut out already.
I have tons of fabric as well and yarn. I finally got that all sorted and organized as well.
So as you see I have lots of hobbies besides writing. Do you have any hobbies?
