I’m Hooked…

So why am I doing yet another crafty thing… It all began because I was/am bored at work… I can’t quit my job to pursue my hobbies, but I can try to do something more creative on the side to uplift my mood until I retire… Also, I want to prepare myself for retirement… I don’t want to sit home and have regrets… I want to be active and have something to do in my spare time… Right now, I’m trying photography and I started beading and using Polymer Clay… Three things at a time may be a bit too much, but I am enjoying myself… I do not see it as work…  I have a great time and I have met a bunch of funny creative ladies and we encourage and help each other…

On another note, all these workshops are free through Meetup.com. Some charge a minimal fee for the space rental, but that’s it… All you spend is on the supplies… I found the Polymer Guild through Google search… Right in my own backyard…

There are so many types of groups… No one should feel lovely or bored… Find and ask and you shall receive…

Who knows what I can become after fifty… Life has shown me endless possibilities…

    What an inspirational post! And I love that you are making plans and be proactive about your retirement. Once you revive your creativity, there will never be a dull moment.
    The photos of the class are full of joy! I can just feel how happy everyone was there!
    I think I saw a pasta machine in one of the photos….? To do the rolling I guess…what a great idea! I am so pleased that you are having such fun!

      We have to condition the clay and it helps to use a pasta machine to flatten it… It’s fun and it’s a way to get out and mingle… I love my groups… I look forward to the two or three times we meet a month… Take care and have a terrific day…
