build something, create, invent
confused and frozen
So, I’m looking for a hobby, maybe even more of a craft. My wife, ScrapJam, crochets and… well… everything. She’s amazingly crafty. Me? I waste time. I’ve got my video games, but y’know I just want to have accomplished something when I’m done.
Tried woodworking, I really enjoyed it but I’ve lost my garage and I can’t use a router (not that kind Uileat) indoors. That would be bad.
I want something I can do in the house, I mean, this is Iowa, half the year is winter. Something that won’t make a mess, but I could hopefully give as gifts or something when its done. Like I could (but never did) with my woodworking.
The wife thinks I should take up crochet, like her. It would seem to satisfy all the requirements, but I just can’t get interested in it. None of the fabric or fiber arts hold any appeal. Too bad, because they’d do the trick.
I’ve seen a lot of web posts saying things like model making and photography and collecting and whatever. Computer programming could be cool, but I’ve got no experience and it would be a long time before I could accomplish something. Besides, how could I give away a program as gifts? Not gonna work. Nothing is quite right. I want to build, create, invent… but I don’t have much in the way of skills.
Now I’m just rambling, this is frustrating.
