1. Photography📸, yoga🧘🏻‍♀️, knitting🧶(I‘m woefully out of practice rn), 🚶🏻‍♀️
2. Painting/drawing🎨 (it‘s been a long time but I used to be pretty decent & think I‘d enjoy it so much more now)

#hellothursday @wanderinglynn

1. Writing, improv comedy, theatre, cooking, walking, and going to the gym.

2. I‘d love to draw but my wrists are still so weak I don‘t know if I could. The pain is improving slowly so maybe one day

3. Nah, and I don‘t even collect books really! I give them all away. I do keep all my theatre programmes?

4. I started exercise cause of a terrifying article about risk factors for bowel cancer 😂

5. Will do 🥰

wanderinglynn Improv, wow, that‘s impressive! Thanks for playing! 💜 2mo

1. Travel, hiking, yoga, coloring, puzzles
2. So many! I love to try new things. Wheel pottery, SUP, art journaling, piano, herbalism
3. Funko pops, tea pots, faeries
4. They all revolve around self-care, being in nature, and/or spending time with my loves and exploring new places. 👨‍👩‍👧
5. Great idea! 👍

And if you have an Etsy shop (or want to recommend your favorite) put the link below!!


4thhouseontheleft I also have many hobbies I‘ve tried and found aren‘t for me 😂 : knitting, sewing, guitar, scrapbooking, jewelry making, and woodworking. 2mo
wanderinglynn You‘re like me—you love to try new things! I‘ve done a lot of the ones you‘ve listed. 👍🏻 SUP is a ton of fun. Piano is great too. I‘m also interested in herbalism. Thanks for playing! 💜 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @wanderinglynn I meant to say SUP yoga! I have done SUP and really enjoy it, and would love to bring my yoga practice to the water! 2mo
wanderinglynn I‘ve done SUP yoga—loads of fun. Great for really working those stability muscles. 👍🏻 2mo

? Photography, Gardening (perennial flowers in my back garden), Travel

? Pottery

? No. I‘m more of a minimalist!

? Pépère was a hobby photographer ... and nature is beautiful. Easy inspiration


4thhouseontheleft I would like to try pottery too! Our local arts center has a wheel class, which I am trying to convince a friend to take in the fall with me. 2mo
wanderinglynn @CouronneDhiver @4thhouseontheleft pottery is fun! I‘ve taken several classes and would love to take more. Y‘all should definitely do it. And thanks for playing! 💜 2mo

#HelloThursday @wanderinglynn
1. I like crafts. I've done some wood painting, signs, paper crafting. Haven't done much in awhile but hope to get back to it soon.
2. I've always wanted to make a quilt.
3. I love stationary, pens, blankets, totes, Willow Tree figurines.
4. Not sure. I've always love being creative.
5. Will do!

wanderinglynn I have a couple willow tree figurines. I love their gracefulness. Thanks for playing! 💜 2mo
tracey38 @wanderinglynn I love them. My sister and I used to get each other one for birthdays/holidays, but haven't in a couple years. 2mo
whatshesreadingnow I‘d love to learn how to quilt too. My mother in law really enjoyed it and was going to teach me someday sadly she was diagnosed with Alzheimer‘s. Our local fabric store has classes that I‘m hoping to get to one of these days. 2mo

tracey38 @whatshesreadingnow I hope you get to take the class! I have always thought it would be neat to do. I know it's time consuming though. 2mo
whatshesreadingnow You‘re right. I think it would be a perfect activity to do during winter season because of the time it takes. 2mo
tracey38 @whatshesreadingnow that's very true! 2mo
Crazeedi I said the same for number 2 2mo

#HelloThursday | hobbies
1. Jigsaw puzzles, cross-stitching, writing are my top 3
2. Glass blowing
3. Magnets—I get one from every place I visit, and Pins—some are bookish, but some aren‘t
4. I‘ve been writing since I was a child. I can‘t imagine not writing.
5. 🌈💜

For new folks: everyone‘s invited to play along—screenshot the photo and create your own post using the #HelloThursday hashtag and tagging me so I can see your answers! 😀

tpixie I love watching glass blowing!!
I love cross stitch- my sister was an expert on tiny over-one
Interestingly, I quit cross stitching after my dad died- I was working on a project for him - of 3 girls flying kites, representing his 3 daughters, and now one daughter has passed ( the cross stitch queen) - oh my! how did this post get so sad?
Some day I will pick it up and start again!

Back to the beauty of glass blowing!!!!
Crazeedi @tpixie ((hugs))❣ 2mo
wanderinglynn @tpixie I feel you. {hugs} But yes, glass blowing is amazing! I‘ve always wanted to learn how to do it. 2mo
