#HAWMC Day 22 is MINE, BABY! (No, not really.) “Hobbies! We at WEGO Health love hobbies. Tell us, what are YOUR hobbies? Are you a rock collector? Scrapbooking? Photographer? Dancer? Share your talents. (Pictures encouraged)”
I have a “Healing Through Art” page (that tab up at the top of the blog posts) for a reason.
I have aspired to continue my hobbies of scrapbooking, mixed media and sewing’n’stuff because?
Because I can.
That’s not pompous, that’s reality. My hands are going to hurt whether I slap pieces of paper together wrapped up in a string’o’bling.
My back is going to hurt whether I’m sewing up banners or dresses.
My systemic inflammation is going to hurt for…ever?!?
Why the hell would I not continue to have a quality of creativity of living?? It’s my escapism from the shitballs of the Cosmos…and the hyper-focus tends to relieve the pain just that wee bitty…
Lard tunderin’ jeezuz it makes me upset when chronically afflicted peeps pull the “I can’t.” card.
TAKE ANOTHER CARD FROM THE DECK!!! \m/
If you can’t dance…sing!
If you can’t sing…needlework!
If you can’t try…….???
Maybe I get so passionate about trying to get people to…well…try…because I wouldn’t do shit if I didn’t have to, either! Seriously. Lazy as f\m/ck.
But you don’t see that, do you! Nope. You see me stringin’ the bling and sewing the awesome and…trying.
Here’s a bitty of my gallery:
Here are the clothes I’d made for the younglings for our wedding…because if you’re going to learn to sew, do it for your wedding four months away…Google and Youtube the shit out of the how-to’s for two…
My uber-passion is scrapbooking, though. I was a teacher for three years, have been on multiple Design Teams from Ottawa to Vancouver, and currently design for Tina’s Scrapbooking Creations, just outside of Ottawa, in Winchester.
You can click on any of the images to make them more viewable…
Made our wedding invitations. And…everything else…
Why do I put myself through this, you ask?
I’m soooooooooooo proud of the things that I make!
I buffed and crafted my drinking horn & holder:
Remember, what does it hurt to try?
What kinds of hobbies do YOU have, or would you like to give’a’go sometime??
LASTLY…just a lil’ bitty I made as part of the wedding fiasco-I-endeavour-to-always-remember…it’s our handfasting anniversary two weeks from now xoxo
