Creative hobbies

Although sometimes, my hobbies distracts me from my writing, I find writing requires the same type of creativity that wells from the same place. So I felt I’d share a few things I’ve made;

booklet

Here I made a tiny book necklace, with working pages. I want to expand to add actual printed pages, and more elaborate book covers. I considered even making my own book cover necklace, from what I’ve published. It offers a way people can ask me about it. Winking smile

I can make my own die cut files  with the Silhouette Portrait , so I made this Skyrim dragon logo, to let the other drivers know that I know Dragon shouts, and I’m not afraid to use them!

I’m considering making something writing related, like text to say “I’m an author- back off!” or something overly dramatic like that.

I make handmade cards. This was for my niece’s graduation, with an envelope I also made. When you make handmade cards, you often have to make envelopes to match because size varies. The photo is a bit dark, but it’s a grad hat, with tassel- also made from embroidery thread.

More fun with die cuts, this time for my laptop. I also made some things for the tablet, including the text ‘learnthepc.net’ which is the name of my business.

And I also do photography as a hobby. Generally, I use my iPhone 4S camera, but I also have a Canon PowerShot SX120IS digital camera.

My son also likes photography, so we’ll go on hikes and take photos together. I catch him taking pictures of me when I don’t know it, which I suppose he has to because I tend to look like a derp if I know a camera is on me.

This is a hike we did on C&O Canal close to home. Its walking distance, and my dog Pepper loves to explore near the canal, looking for frogs and muskrats. I thought my son, who is 14 years old, did pretty well for a start photographer

  1. I love the little stickers on the laptop, they’re adorably cute

    My hobbies? Right now, I’m a wee bit addicted to the games QuizUp and 2048… usually it just ends up as driving, listening to music, going to gigs, watching tv/movies and reading as my hobbies.
