I’m a Hobby Whore

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I am a dreamer by nature. I’m really good at it because I love details and hammering things down. Take for instance my dream of being this stellar wedding/baby/pregnancy photographer. I fell in love with photography while planning my wedding and seeing the journalistic style of capturing special moments. I picked out my fave camera, worked out a plan to get clients, thought of great set ups for pictures – I had it all planned out short of a name.

Take for instance my obsession with wanting to learn to sew. Etsy is the evil demon behind it all. OMG! I can totally make quilts and kick ass dresses and stuffed toys. Just get me a sewing machine and I’ll start cranking out goods. Or take my dream of wanting to start my own jewelry line. This one I don’t know that I can let go of but we’ll see. I love mommy jewelry, you know what I’m talking about – charms with initials and dates and birth stones and fingerprints. I’m all over it. I’ve gone so far as to start pricing from wholesalers how much it would be to get chains and blank charms to stamp.

I haven’t done a one of them but I sure have dreamed about them. No doubt I’ll eventually make my way to trying them but what I realize is that every hobby morphs into a crazy business plan. I need to just accept that I’m a hobby whore. Photography, sewing, jewelry, soap making, lotion making, don’t get me started on graphic design. I need to take each for what it’s for and just do it and enjoy it and then let it go…well unless it becomes my thing and I do it like forever…you know like knitting folks who really looooooove it. I don’t know that I’ll find that one hobby that I really love. Maybe I’ve already found it…maybe hobbies are my hobby.
