During these long cold autumn days I started to think about having some hobby, but I want it to be not just regular, but something extraordinary. Do you have something in mind? Maybe we could imagine something together? Just let's think of what we could do?

You should think of anything that you do as extraordinary. I mean if you started knitting, maybe that's "normal" but you could make extraordinary things with your knitting. I think being creative and making something is the best hobby you can have. Or go make your hobby helping people. Start a "Pay it forward" where you do something nice for someone and all you ask for in return is that they do the same...and etc. etc.

Learn to play an instrument. I think all music is extraordinary, and learning to play it yourself is just incredible. I play 3 different instruments, and always find it fun to learn more!

WEll one thing i tend to do ALOT of when its too cold to do anything outside is knit! I have made scarves with all those NEW yarns - ones that feel like feather and so on - u can find them at craft and knitting stores - Micheal's Arts & crafts had them on sale!! for $1 !! I have been told to sell them! ( i just prefer to make them for family & friends) - maybe u can look into ur local markets - craft sales - community sales ect to make them and sell! OR attend one craft place and ask where they went or talked to so set up a *booth* to sell ur items (?) just one idea! :) xx have fun!!

I have always been fond of oil painting. Though you would probably want to start off with watercolors (oils take forever to dry). Then there is always pastels and colored pencils. There is also pottery, but that is rather messy. And not everyone has the room for that hobby. My personal hobby (which ended up being a way to make a living) is writing. I consider it to be extraordinary, but let's be honest--a lot of people just consider it to be hard work. :(

I consider writing to be a hooby, because if someone considers it to be a really hard work than he is not a good writer. Good writer needs to like what he is doing.

I'd say painting a still life. Knitting would be nice too You can also pick up on writing perhaps. Craftmaking/jewelry making might be nice too Soleya.

What's make a hobby extraordinary is by the amount of time and money you put into it. I had two such hobbies in the past. One was a model railway... and the other... a stamp collection. They were limitless and could have lasted a lifetime... providing I kept pouring money into them. Both were expensive hobbies. But no more expensive than going out every weekend. You need to have your priorities right. You either go out... or you have a hobby. Today... my computer is my hobby. I learned to use many programs to do many different things. I did spend many years building websites as a hobby.

I have more hobbies than I can deal with! I'm a papercrafter, making pop-up cards, toys, scrapbook pages and regular greeting cards. I make and bind books. I make handmade paper. I do quilling and pierced-paper crafts. I enjoy making jewelry. I used to be a custom bridal seamstress and still enjoy sewing, but now its smaller projects. I knit, crochet, do cross stitch and regular embroidery. I've done French heirloom sewing, quilting, hooking rugs, and needlepunch. I have three rooms full of materials for all of these hobbies. One thing I know for a fact... when you find the right hobby, the hours will fly by, and it will be spring before you know it! Good luck in your search!
