Dream Hobby

Since I started school I really haven't had time for a hobby. I liked to scrapbook in high school, but I've gotten so far behind that it would just be a daunting task to start now. Other than hanging out with Michael and Beaux, I really don't do much in my spare time. I started this blog, but I have to do things so I will have something to write about.

However, I think I have discovered my new hobby!
I love to take old furnitue and give it new beauty. It's wonderful to watch the transformation before your eyes. I can't tell you how much fun it is.

I can't tell you how much fun it is because I haven't actually done it yet. It's going on the list of things I plan to do when we move. I think I will love it. I know I will love it. I did enjoy working on the kitchen and extra bedroom in the Little House (minus the total lack of sleep part and the not having a working toilet part). It was great looking at what we had accomplished. Since then I have been obsessed with blogs about taking old houses or furniture and making them new again.

Like the sweet couple at Altar'd who took this

(And they offer a workshop once a month...hmmm...)

Or like the hilarious duo at The Lettered Cottage who took this

Then to this

Doesn't it make you feel inspired and refreshed?

I don't have the work space or storage space right now to start a project, but I have several planned already for when we move back. In the mean time, I'll keep dreaming and keep telling everyone this is my hobby.

Thank you and good night.
