Maybe it's my endless hours of stalking Pinterest, but I've recently decided that there are two new hobbies I would love to pick up in the future.
Don't get me wrong, I actually keep myself decently busy with reading, blogging, hours of online window shopping, going to the gym, working, etc. ... but there are two particular hobbies that I think would allow me to be creative that could also be really fun.
Please note: I don't want to be the crazy cake lady in town, and I don't want to be asked to bake a cake for your child's 3rd birthday party.
I do, however, want to be able to bake yummy treats for my family. In particular, yummy cupcakes, cakes, and cookies! I'd love to start by taking some basic baking classes at our local cooking school, and maybe a cake decorating class to learn how to make homemade frosting not look like a runny mess. Then I'd just like to practice at home for fun. The idea of baking cupcakes someday without using a Betty Crocked mix and frosting in a can is something I would love to do.
Don't worry, I'm not one of those people that wants to buy a DSLR camera and start an on the side photography business, I promise. Basically I just want to invest in a non-point and shoot camera and be able to take nice, non-blurry pictures of my family. I think I'd need to take a few classes just to learn how to use it, and then just practice as much as I can. Once I learned how to take some decent pictures, I would love to learn some basic editing on Photoshop.
I haven't used Photoshop since high school yearbook, but I secretly long to be a Photoshop whiz! I'd love to take some classes on using it again because I know it has likely changed a ton since using it 8 years ago. I'd like to use Photoshop for not only photo editing, but also basic design for fun projects.
In all honesty, these aren't hobbies I'm going to be starting right away, but I'd like to start saving for a new camera and exploring my options as far as classes go.
Are there any hobbies out there that you'd love to pick up?
