  • I love cross stitching, but you'll still be lonely. I've made a lot of friends selling Avon. My district manager loves my daughter and insists I bring her to meetings lol. It gives me smtg to do and lets me earn extra money. Msg me if you're interested I'll give you a website to get started right away online.

  • Soap's so much fun. It's easy, the ingredients aren't expensive, you can give it as gifts and even sell it and make some extra $$.

  • You can knit, sew, scrapbook, redecorate the house, write the next great novel.

    My kids are older. When they were small they had toys in my sewing room so I could play too. Now that they are older, they come in and play with fabric for projects of their own.

  • My newest hobby(I get bored and need new stuff to try constantly) is blending mineral makeup. I can make any color eye shadow or blush my heart desires, my foundation is always a perfect match, and the supplies are so cheap is borders on ridiculous. TKB trading even has starter kits that come with enough supplies to last years.

  • I love to draw and paint and fold Origami. I know that last one might seem a little wierd but I just LOVE working with paper. I also make jewelry, take my daughter for long walks...

  • A lot of what I like to do when I have free time is probably boring to others. But I like to read blogs and comment, write letters to Congressmen and newspaper editors, write poetry and short stories, do word puzzles, and jigsaw puzzles on the computer, take one of the Great Courses from The Teaching Company, make lists, look through catalogs. I am hoping to try scrapbooking and have a question up about how best to get started.

  • PC games :D

    I play WoW hehe...and i love it. It's social, get to know people, and keeps my time busy, and it's very easy to turn off.

    Go to a games store, and see what they have... sure there#'s something that'll keep you amused.
