It's a sad truth that I left all of my artistic potential in the womb for my younger sister. Now I have spent many years knitting, although I never strayed from scarves really. I was in constant demand for them so it was all good...cheap Christmas/birthday presents FTW.  Wink

But I'd like to start on something new altogether. I'd be up for other crafty hobbies or interesting ideas. I loved being able to make something out of raw material that I could give to someone else. Does anyone have suggestions for a good gifting craft?

Or a unique hobby in general would be great. I'll be devoting a lot of time to my studies of the Celtic path now but I feel new hobbies and music are essential components for a rebirth of sorts.

What about decoupage?  Victorians used to do it all the time, and you can totally fulfill artistic urges... and get your 'artwork' from various sources like magazines and whatnot... You can do little boxes and things like that.

My fascination lately has been with making jewelry out of found objects. There's a thread here somewhere with a pic of a bracelet I made out of clock gears, circuit board, and chain.

Oooh candles would be really fun, too. This is excellent! Definitely going to try it out. I wonder what other things you could apply it to?

I'd love to see your work, any idea where that thread might be? Do you usually purchase clasps or are you able to fashion those out of what you find also? I'll be on the hunt for some things....


Thank you ladies!

HEY.

Speaking of which. I need potential selling buddies for Pagan Pride Day. Interested in sharing a booth?

That sounds like so much fun! I'd love to, but I live in Egypt. :\

Hmmm...someone already suggested candles, so what about making incense, soaps, etc?  Also, since you are musical, what about learning violin, harp, or...erm...perhaps a mandolin as an offering to your Gods and an added contribution to your rebirth?

I like the soap idea...that brings to mind that I used to dabble in herbal medicine a good bit, I think that would be another good thing to start up again. I remember feeling quite happy when I expanded my knowledge of healing and focused on becoming a healer. I never got around to making salves but that would be quite fun I think. I need to find out what's available here.

It's funny I actually played the violin for 5 years when I was younger, then dropped it as I took up new interests and decided to move out of the country. However it was one of the only things that was saved when my family's house burned down in December. Perhaps I should take this as a sign to pick it back up? Unfortunately that would mean I still don't have access to it for another 9 months...and my roommates would be subjected to some horrible cacophonies until I get the hang of it again.  Wink

Go for it.  I think you have a solid plan there.

It's interesting that I had a nudge to put the musical suggestion there...maybe it is a sign, but only you can be sure of that.
