When I'm bored I usually cross stitch my signature heart or spend an hour or so dreaming up new craft project ideas.

My favorite craft to do when I'm bored is probably knitting. I know it's not the most creative answer . There is so much instant gratification with knitting, every row you can see your project getting closer to completion, it's hard to put down once I start.

Ok, my favorite things to do when I am bored it to cook. Cooking is a way that I can feel in control of what is going on. I can easily decide what I want to make, and I can change the recipe(to a limit) to make it taste just how I want. It also is an awesome way to put food into my pantry, since there is nothing good in there Happy. If I can't cook, like the kitchen is a mess or I am out of ingredients, it would have to be drawing. I don't draw exquisite masterpieces, but they are good enough for me.

I make tons of amigurumi (crocheted dolls/animals/monsters) that end up filling every nook and cranny of my house, my dad even found one in his biking boots once!

I sometimes follow the patterns of others, but I mostly make my own. Some of my previous projects have included a White Totoro, an Alien Invader, a Mario Mushroom, and a Chomping Tyrannosaurus Rex! I love experimenting with new stitches and designs, I've recently taken up brushing my dolls with a dog slicker to break up the wool fibres, to give them a 'furry' look! =D So much fun!

When I get bored I love to learn to sew new bag patterns! I love to sew things for people that I know they can use everyday. Whether it is a clutch, purse, messenger bag or grocery tote I love learning new techniques to make them last longer and look better! I have a huge stash of grocery totes that I always keep in my car for when I go shopping!

My favorite hobby is making skincare stuffs. I make cold process soaps and all sorts of all natural perfumes and lotions. I make a ton of stuff for my friends and I really enjoy the looks on their faces when they get a homemade soap from me. Making skincare goodies is a favorite creative outlet of mine that also gives me a dose of aromatherapy while I craft!

Sketching random doodles, sometimes painting.. But lately i've been stitching and making felt characters. Very relaxing. My son loves to play with them when I'm done. Last one was Totoro Happy Made me smile.

If I'm bored, I challenge myself to make humor crafts that I can mix in with my 9-5 life. For example, I have a laptop sleeve that I made with a stiched zombie. Only if you're really paying attention to my laptop sleeve (which most of the 9-5 crowd don't) will you see the zombie. I can take things I make and mesh my two worlds - crafting and the serious professional world. Additionally if you take the time to notice and comment it's an instant conversation starter. I've made a lot of good friends that way
