My Hobby Habits.
Blue Peter made matters worse when the showed how you could make a Barbie Salon from egg boxes and yogurt pots, no prizes for guessing the next invention Sam wanted to make. It took the Cast of Blue Peter three show segments to make there Salon and it took me six weeks to make mine. By time I saved all the rubbish I needed, my Salon was bigger than there's and I always had to try to go that one-step further putting pictures of plug sockets on walls and string on things as electrical cables. All that hard work and effort gave me many weeks of entertainment I can tell you and not just making it but playing with it as well. Sadly, a sibling fight led to the departure of my work of art to the rubbish bin and I was devastated, but that was not enough to stop my creative streak.The next craze came and was making greeting cards, gift tags and calendars. My poor mother would have them all over the house pictures, cards, everything had a gift tag and all the walls contained at least two calendars on each. I made so many in the end she must have been just throwing loads away as there was just no stopping me. The creative streak did subside for quite a while during some difficult times in my life but came bursting back through about ten years later about four months before my daughter was born. Suddenly it was attack of the knitting needles and mass production of cardigans, booties, hats, pram blankets, cot blankets and knitted toys, I was like a woman possessed and it did not stop there, when next on the list was dusting off the sewing machine. Next on my production list was sheets, pram and cot bumpers, fabric mobiles, towelling robes and more.
I really was enjoying myself and saving a fortune at the same time, but I still craved more so of I wobbled to the Library and got myself out a book on learning to Crochet. I sat there night after night with the book, wool and a crochet needle until finally I cracked it and mass production of Crochet items started. The crazy was slowed down again after my Daughters birth as I was far to busy to do craft and soon becoming a single mum made it even more difficult. I did not really start up again until my daughter started nursery and I found myself with time on my hands.
