Time Management is the key to preserving the fun in your hobby!Give yourself 30 minutes a night exploring your hobby. Use 30 minutes to plan for the project, the next night use 30 minutes to gather the needed supplies for your planned project, etc. If you do this in increments each night, you will soon learn how to relax & enjoy your hobby. You won't be asking yourself: "When do I have time?"
Find an organized gathering and spend a vacation doing what you love (and yes, a little commercial!)
Whether it be beading, scrapbook and card making or perhaps my favorite: Embroidery.
While writing this, here is an event for those that sew! For those who keep asking me, what I am teaching at the American Embroidery Conference, in terms of hands on classes, here is a picture of the projects. There are two: one is a tote and the other is matching accessories. The tote has a magnetic closure, and deep pockets inside. If you can stitch a straight line, I can easily teach you how to make this bag. You will walk away with a project that you can actually use! By the way, I did these in 30 minute increments and by doing so - I know how long they will take to make in the classroom while making sure that I factor in extra time for beginners. A nice perk to this event is that Atlanta Sewing Center supplies the machines for the classroom. You do not have to bring your machines from home to the conference. The dates and links are also kept on the cookiescreations.com under events as well as other available learning opportunities on the classes page. While this conference addresses sewing, quilting and embroidery, there are many conventions throughout the country that provide fun learning experiences in various hobbies.

A recipe for success that took me many years to learn...
Plan your days on your smart phone or daily planner and respect it. If you do than others will do the same. In the end you will be a happier and a more productive person, enjoying quality time with those you love, and doing the "assignments" that must be done with greater joy~ Cookie
