Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to color.
And if we got to buy the box of 64 that had it's own crayon sharpener, we were in heaven.
I was thrilled when the new rage of adult coloring books hit the stands. But alas, crayons to not work well. You need colored pencils which I don't like coloring with.
So someone told me the other day, they now have additional activities books for adults. Ones like Fashion Design and Dot to Dot.
So I am thinking about that last night and trying to decide to I want to look for a dot to dot? Would I be happy or challenged or feel a sense of accomplishment if I just connected dots? Then it hit me. If the point of these children's joys being okay to do as an adult, why can't I make pot holders again with the weaving loom like I used. Two of my favorite potholders I use all the time were two my grandson made me when he was a little boy and I had bought one and he loved doing it.
So I'm stopping at Hobby Lobby today and getting me a loom. With my 40% off, I can get one for just about $4 including tax.
Which also means I need to buy a pack of crochet hooks to loop them off the loom when I'm done. FYI this thrills me because I have longed to learn to crochet just so I could buy some pretty aluminum hooks. Now I can.
But if I'm going back to my childhood for relaxation, my kitchen floor is perfect for playing Jacks. So I many just look into getting a set of those as well.
Wow, I'm so excited for some new things to do. This is going to be more fun than a Barrel of Monkeys.
