I picked up knitting because I am absolutely addicted to picking up crafts and hobbies.I collect them, and I must admit, at times I have gone too far.
I mainly draw(graphite) and sew/design. I’ve picked up a lot of random crafts over my 19 years of being alive. I guess most of it has come about because of my being raised by a penny pincher though. I always see things that I like and I think “This is nice…but I bet I could make it for 5 bucks cheaper!”
Aside from those crafts, I also crochet, do origami, make random cardboard and paper crafts(last FO was a recipe box), I do makeup(glam, pinup and wedding), I refinish/refurbish thrift store finds for my house(this is more specific to the objects I find, so with new items,I have to learn new techniques), I made duc tape purses,messenger bags and wallets for a while; and in a few days, I will be making my first piece of furniture, a new queen sized platform bed for myself and the bf.I designed it so that the slats will come off in one piece and make room for 4 40 gallon storage bins plus there is a shelf for shoe storage which is not concealed by the mattress.Note: I am not even including the other time consuming hobbies that are not craft related, like playing instruments.
Am I the only hoarder on here?I always wonder what dozens of other crafts other people pick up. I am honestly surprised I have any time for friends.It seems that I can only squeeze in time for actually CREATING the things I think of between the time it takes to plan them out.
