Wow... I grew up in a Craft Store.... literally. My parents started the store when I was 9. Anyhoo... I have done almost all the crafts out there from wood burning, to stitchery, to flower arranging (yuck), to painting (water color/oils/ and acrylics). Right now I am doing a LOT of plastic canvas needlepoint for my husband. Weird.. I know. But it has been a fun project. We (my daughter and I) are making a map for my husband's miniatures gaming. So... approximately 500 3" hexes later, and my hands hurt. But it looks cool.
I would like to get into leather working and wood working. Currently, my non essential hobbies are maille and baseball, and I can live without the latter of the two. I am pretty sure out of the past calendar year, I have mailled more then I should have. No carpel tunnel issues, no vision issues with micromail. I used to be into video games (I mean, every waking moment) but that has kind of faded.
Does home improvement count? I'm renovating a century old house so I can rent out the lower floor while I attend pharmacy school next year... so my latest project has been replacing the linoleum bathroom floor with ceramic tile (which I now want in my upstairs bathroom in place of my current tub surround!). I also do some light gardening... had a pepper garden lay summer so I could experiment with making salsa!
I've got a bad case of OCS (obsessive craft syndrome) aka OOh Shiny Disease. I see something, like it, learn it (and buy all required and unrequired tools), get really good at it, and then - ooh, shiny, what's that over there? I needle felt, crochet, knit, tie fancy knots and braid leather. My leather work can be seen at http://www.kangaroolead.com. I am a professional photographer - and earn my living taking win photos at dog shows.
But my main hobby is fitness. I'm a commuter cyclist (I don't own a car) and I lift weights. I finally can do pullups (woo-hoo!) and am now working on pistol squats. So, um, I guess you could say I'm crafting my body?
Well I currently mostly make jewellery of all types - maille being my first love but I also do kumihimo and wirework. I used to crochet quite a bit and when I was a kid I sewed all the time. Still kind of miss it but it used to be a cheaper option now it seems fabric and patterns are so expensive.
I read a lot. I also enjoy cooking and making bread from scratch.
I do a little Pearl knotting, kumihino, and wirework. I love photography and dream of having my own darkroom someday. There is no greater manic than seeing your print develop regardless of how many times you've seen it before.
