Photo Hunt Saturday - Hobby
This week's theme is hobby. And while I have three specific things I like to do, I find myself lacking the time to actual engage in my hobbies.
The first is scrapbooking. I have been doing this for a few years now and really enjoy it. I have books started but not quite done of the older two girls. I find when I am in the mood to work on them, I don't have the right pictures. Since we went digital, I have lacked printing the pictures. They just sit on a disk.
The second hobby is something I can only do part of the year. It's gardening. I really only started seriously working in the gardens last year. Before that, I would try but never think ahead. I would just go out and buy flats of annuals and plant them. They'd look nice for the season and then the following year, I would start over. Last year we planted veggies. They didn't take well, but we at least got our money's worth. The girls loved picking veggies from the yard (and raspberries) and eating them. This year, we are planning another veggie garden, but are going to give it proper care prior to planting. I have also invested in some perennials to keep coming back year after year. I can't wait to see our garden grow! The seedlings you see are the start of our sunflower house!
My last hobby is sewing. This is new to me and while I enjoy it, I don't have much time to do it. I have been working on summer dresses for the girls. This is the fabric I plan on using.
When we brought our house, we brought it because it has a small room off the master bedroom. This is our hobby room, although Husband's D&D stuff takes up most of the room. The following are pictures of our hobby room.
And lastly, here are some pictures of Husband's hobby. He enjoys painting miniatures.
