Today’s Weekly Blogging Challenge is to share a new hobby that you’re trying or that you wish to try. Over the years I’ve had so many new hobbies, from raising chickens to creating my own room and toilet sprays (I just tried that last week!) that I could write about this topic for days on end. Since I work from home, I can engage in just about any cheap hobby I like, and they usually come in handy while homeschooling, too.
My favorite hobby has to be making stickers for my journal and planner. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t even like stickers from the store as much anymore (although I do still find ones I like on Etsy!). This week I made some Witcher stickers, for example.
Creating costumes and drawing with my teenager (we like to issue weird challenges, like “incorporate stitching into a fandom,” which resulted in a creepy Care Bear and a stuffed plush of Winston from Ghostbusters last night) are some of my other favorite hobbies. I also like making things in my new air fryer that my parents bought us for Christmas, playing board games with my family, going to concerts, trying out new indie perfume oils (my favorites are Sugar & Spite, Fortune Cookie Soap, Solstice Scents, Hexxenacht and Has of Gloi) and, of course, reading.
Some new hobbies I hope to try in 2020 are wine and cheese tasting with my husband, camping and traveling (which, to be fair, we’ve done off and on), and doing more projects around our house. This year we have some big goals in that department that are both intimidating and exciting.
How about you? What are your current hobbies or new ones you hope to try in 2020?
