Thursday Thirteen #53

13 Hobbies I'd Like to Explore

  1. Pottery - Maybe I can reenact the scene from the movie Ghost. But really, I'd love to get my hands dirty and make beautiful pottery.

  2. Knitting - Just to make nice scarves or pot holders. I don't think I'd ever be able to make something as complicated as a sweater.

  3. Painting - I would like to learn better techniques and be able to do some painting around the house--on cabinets, on the children's walls, etc. But I'm so contemporary, I wouldn't want to do pretty flowers, I'd want to do something unique.

  4. Raising chickens - A useful hobby. I love fresh eggs and fresh chicken. But I also love the birds themselves!

  5. Beading - Making jewelery.

  6. Sewing - Get me a sewing machine and I'll start making curtains and maybe work my way up to outfits or chair covers.

  7. Cake decorating - Pretty stuff that's also good to eat!

  8. Motorcycle riding - I would like to have a motorcycle and go for joy rides.

  9. Photography - I've dabbled in the past, but I'd love to learn more about lighting and the different settings.

  10. Writing children's books - I have a few ideas I'd like to start on. Perhaps this could turn into something other then a hobby and I could make money!

  11. Robotics - Don't tell my son, but I think he'll get a Lego Mindstorms set for his birthday, and we are all looking forward to playing with it. But I'd also like to learn how to make simple robotic artwork or light systems.

  12. Filmmaking - Short films or funny documentaries. It's one of those things that I see and think "Hey, I can do that!"

  13. Podcasting - I would like to do a Thursday Thirteen podcast from Creekistan with my husband. My friends and family would love to hear us talk, and I think we can be pretty damn funny!

I'm with you on cake decorating and film-making. Lots of fun :D

Some great hobbies there...a lot of which I am somewhat interested, but will never do. I have no artistic ability whatsoever...

Happy TT!

I love photography, and hope to some day make it a part time job.

all great ideas, especially #13!

That's all cool! I'd like to do some pottery, too. I bet you could knit anything you wanted, if you put your mind to it :-)

My T-13 is up!

You're very brave! I cannot imagine trying any of those! Although, I did sew a little bit, and even taught a class on it.

I'm trying to learn how to knit. I don't have a lot of time to practice, but I really enjoy it. And podcasting is something I'd love to try too. I may have to look into that. Great list. :)

I wish life was easy enough to allow us to enjoy and try all the things we would love to! All these would be on my list. Take the time to enjoy - LC

Podcasting is fun. I do one with my 15 year old. I work behind the scenes, but it's still fun. Helps me not miss my old radio days when I was a DJ at my High School station.

The hobby I wish I had more time for but never will get to is cross-stitching. I don't know why. Instead of boring me, it helps me feel focused, but I've got family movies to make, photos to organize, music to play, art to create... yeah, cross-stitching isn't going to happen anytime soon. ;)

Great list!!

Writing children's books, filmmaking and podcasting sound great to me. My wife graduated with a BAA in Filmmaking so I intend to ride her coat-tails for a while.
