52 Weeks of Gratitude Week 41


Week 41: Hobbies

I have lots of hobbies! Card making, scrapbooking, writing, baking, photography, playing the clarinet, crafting all sorts of things, but most recently making fun snail mail for my pen pals!

Here are a few of my latest projects. I hope to update this more, maybe even some tutorials of crafts I make and recipe’s I bake/cook!


A folder I made for one of my pen pals!



Halloween Card I made


One of my favorite pictures that I took at Ocean City, MD!


Homemade Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake! Yum!!


Penguin ornament I made for a friend!


One of many sunsets I have taken, but this one is one of my favorites, definitely in my top 3!


Wreath I made for Neil’s aunt. I am a Steelers fan, so this just goes to show how much I loved her! 🙂

Neil and a few other people got together and got me a really cool professional camera for my birthday, which was last Saturday! It came with a lot of cool bells and whistles, so I’m hoping to take even more fantastic photos with it. I will be sharing those with all of you as well!

I am grateful that I have so many talents, and these things help me unwind and relax! So much fun!

What are your hobbies?

Love & life lessons,

    I love the idea of focusing on gratitude, and you’ve done a stellar job! I don’t know where I would be without my hobbies: art-making, writing, reading and video games! 😉

      Thank you! I have just recently gotten into video games, my husband is a big gamer, and other than Mortal Combat or Mario, he would play while I would write, but now I’ve been playing more & more! 🙂 I try not to take the little things for granted, but I know we’re all guilty of that from time to time.

        Nice! I still obsess over old school RPGs like Final Fantasy 6 and Chrono Trigger. I also play a lot of Minecraft with hubby. Sometimes I get frustrated when I feel like I am playing too much, like being consumptive of media is somehow less than being productive in a hobby. I guess it comes and goes on fits and starts; creativity and mindfulness are elusive beasties.
