I have three hobbies that keep me off the streets. First, I love to make jewelry. I like the way the stones sparkle and combine into pieces that are pleasing. I give many of the things I make as gifts to my special friends because I believe a gift means more if you take the time to create it.
I also sew. A lost art, I think. It started because I could never find the styles I wanted when I wanted them. So, I made the clothes I liked. I no longer do anything too complicated, but I just finished a bunch of comfortable blouses and skirts for the summer. And, I will, on occasion, alter something for my friends. And I did promise to make a wedding dress for someone….
And painting. No, I am not Rembrandt by any stretch, but I love color and shape and watching visuals come to life on canvas. I used to work in oil, but it gave me a headache, so now I’m an acrylic girl. Sometimes the paintings are just splashes of colors, but sometimes I do whimsical things, like an elephant or a gorilla with a drinking problem. Just for fun.
Between those things and writing, I am never bored. Which is a good thing, since if I were, I might get into trouble.
Now let’s hop over and see what the fabulous Brenda Margriet’s hobbies are…
