I’ve come to the realization that my ambitions are much greater than reality. I’m sure this a common thing for most people. Mine stems from being an extreme hobbyist. I didn’t realize how out of control it was until I sat down and thought about it recently. With a little one in my life there just isn’t enough time and energy to make all of my ambitions become a reality. Why does there have to be so many neat things to learn about? Pinterest and my job don’t help this problem of mine. There is a reason I don’t go on Pinterest too often. I get my hopes up! Maybe I could work part-time so I can devote the other half of my time to hobbies? If only money grew on trees.
There are endless possibilities in the craft world, and here at Capstone we try to take advantage of that. We are constantly trying to keep up with the new trending hobbies. How-to books are a must have for most children. I remember frequenting the how-to section at the library growing up. I guess that is where my obsession started. Here is an example of my problem: Last Monday I tried to figure out how I could make supper, go to the park with my son, work on some computer projects, start a photo project for my son’s room, knit a hat, and watch a movie. It’s also best if I’m in bed before 10:30. So this gives me roughly 6 hours. I realize that sounds like a lot of time, but it’s really not. I am happy to report that I did all of that except start the photo project. So that’s not bad for a Monday. The week usually goes downhill from there once the exhaustion sets in. What are your favorite hobbies and what kind of books would you like to see in the future from us at Capstone?
