My main hobby is crochet, with some knitting thrown in. You know... yarn stuff.





My biggest hobby, though, is cornsnakes. I've been breeding for specific genetic color traits. (That said, I am about two years behind on my plans due to moving house ~18mos ago.) At the moment, I have twelve corns, four of which I produced myself.




Note: None of those three snakes are related to each other. XD The top pictured is Reggie, my very first snake. The other two are babies I hatched out here, one from a loan agreement and the other completely independently. Both are much bigger than that now... these pictures are kind of old.

Other than that, I do some sewing and other crafty things when I can. I guess you could also put video games on the list, and I've recently started playing RPGs with dice. I also enjoy reading and drawing, but I rarely have time to do those things, anymore. Once upon a time, drawing and art was my major hobby and I miss it so very much.
Your snakes are so pretty! I've always wanted snakes, but I'm not sure if they will ever be in the picture for me. I love the 3rd one!

Other than dogs, my hobbies are mostly sleeping, eating & reading.

Occasionally I like to throw hiking and traveling into the mix, depends on how that affects my sleeping. :p

I also have a horse, I'm hoping to be able to bring him home in a few months. I sent him south for pasture board until I finished up my first degree.

And then after all those things I have a random assortment of things I like to do when the mood strikes.

Thanks! I really need to get updated pictures of all my animals... all my photos are woefully behind the times. That baby (#8) is now known as Dallara, and she will be the keystone piece for the next generation of my Hypo Cinder Tessera project.

Baking (started making my own bread... which I pretty much have to do 3x a week), cooking, watching TV shows, exercising... I used to be a gamer, but I haven't found a game that caught my interest since Dragon Age 3...

And reading but I can never seem to find enough quiet time to do it somehow (yes even alone at home 6 hours a day during the week!).

Other than the dogs...

My husband and I are pretty avid gamers, both PC and console.

We also belong to a couple of tabletop gaming group where we play card and board games, as well as table top rpgs.

I love to cook and bake. I will occasionally throw together a menu make it and invite friends to come help eat all the fancy foods.

I read a lot. I favor fantasy, science fiction, and horror, but I also love reading science related non-fiction and any book that managed to catch my interest.

I dabble in a bit of artwork here and there. Nothing big, mostly just pencil sketches.

Photography...I love my camera!

So besides dogs right? lol


I love nature photography. If I could be ANYTHING in the world I would become a National Geographic photographer. ;)

I make home decorations and plan on opening an etsy shop at some point, and later opening an actual store with my mom.

restoring furniture. I love giving fleemarket finds a new life.

Hiking. I am an outdoor person - nature makes me feel at home.

and last, but certianly not least - Traveling. I love to travel and seeing different cultures. I have a world map in my office where I pin everywhere I want to go, and when I've been it gets a new colored pin ;) Next stop is Thailand. :)

The level of fanciness varies. I did a nice south of the border style brunch one weekend. Mostly involving breakfast burritos and such...not too gourmand that :D

Hobbies...

Planning my farm, which I guess is more "work" related now.

Horses- though I don't have my own currently.

Trying to find money to support my dog habit.

When I have time I really enjoy hiking and bikejoring.

Free time? What's that? LOL!

I would say my hobby right now is exercising my dogs :p And myself.
Skill and I are venturing into sledding with a friend (which hopefully will be bikejoring this summer and then skijoring next winter), and it is SO MUCH FUN!

Dogs are my main hobby. If all goes well here shortly, dogs will be my only hobby for a long time. We'll be spending so much money trying to make dogs a full-time hobby, there won't be any money for anything else! :p

My hobbies include inspecting Terri's bees, testing her soaps and lip balm, and soon to include eating all of her cheese.
