 I would love to do Pottery. I want to create beautiful pieces such as bowls, platters, vases, etc. I want to feel the clay between my fingers like in the movie, "Ghost" without the man,lol. I love Italian pottery and bought many pieces when I was in Italy so I would love to make something like that,

II would like to combine Photography with Crafts. I think making things for your family to enjoy and remember you by are most important. Crafting new frames from discarded ones at yard sales and flea markets to house new or old photos of friends and family would be my hobby of choice. Who knows, you may even mend some broken relationships in the process!

I have always been fascinated by digging for treasure!  I would love to work on an archeological site, assisting the professionals with whatever they needed, and actually do some digging myself!  What a wonderful feeling it must be to 'discover' that hidden secret!

I love to work in the yard, but when I had a full time job, I had to sneak in time when I could. Now that I am retired, I plan to spend a lot of time working on xeriscaping the yard an getting rid of a lot of the grass. Living in South Texas, we don't get much water, so the challenge is what to plant that keeps the landscape looking lush without using water. I just planted a butterfly garden complete with a place to stop and have a drink and plenty of milkweed to lay their eggs on. I can't wait to see if I get any coccoons!

I have a lot of stories from my childhood that I would turn into children's books. Also, I would like to be a photographer.
