Curious at how diverse our hobbies are in here. What do you like to do in your downtime? Share a link, post some photos!
I play video games, much less than I did before. Probably 2-3 hours a week. Sometimes going months without doing it. I also enjoy board games, listening to music, and hiking/camping. Oh and I love to cook! I cook like 90% of the meals we have.
I also enjoy woodworking on the weekends. I am really new to it, and wood has been expensive. But I made my kids a swing set for this summer and a outdoor patio table.
Here is a picture of my swing set:
And here’s a picture of the patio side table:
I enjoy gardening, both vegetables and flowers. And I’ve recently taken up hand-printing linocuts.
Stained glass! On Instagram @syzygyglassworks
Full disclosure, I haven’t incorporated MST into any projects yet.
Reading and writing are lifelong passions of mine. Also an avid naturalist and photographer, with particular focus on wildflowers, insects, and birds.
I did ceramics, glasswork, and letterpress for a while, too.
I build guitar effect pedals. Sometimes I add a bit of humor to the design as a form of therapy, like these two I built during isolation last year:
I cross stitch and bedazzle stuff
Your photography is fantastic! I love hiking and camping too, love the great outdoors. Haven’t been able to do it as of yet.
Thanks kindly! Your woodwork is great as well. My brother does woodworking, his current thing is making “fence peekers” for folks. He’s had a successful run of Sasquatch and Grey Alien peekers lately.
I made this for fellow MSTie, Ron McAdams. The photo is a group of us at the premier of Season 11 in LA
I also really like board gaming (and my favorite game is Dice Throne).
I’m really into board games too. 2020 slowed my collection down…thankfully, but I have about 50+ games in my collection.
Thank you, I’ve made others for MSTies as well
This one I made for a fellow MSTie who wrote a radio play called “Do Rabbots Dream of Electric Sheep” it’s a mash up of Bladerunner and Watership down. It’s hysterical!
That’s fantastic! Seriously, super creative I love that!
That’s so awesome! I would be tempted to have a speaker setup that yelled out “your dad’s in trouble!!!”
I ferment fruits and vegetables. I also brew my own kombucha! Just starting to venture into vinegar-making now.
That’s awesome! I see you would survive if there were ever an apocalypse. Haha with all of our skills combined we would be well off.
