  • These are great suggestions of hobbies! That’s amazing you started embroidering & I’ve recently started knitting I’ve always wanted to start a bujo, but I normally don’t have the time. I also have a set of watercolors for my daughter since they’re easier to clean up than regular paint lol

  • Fantastic ideas! I’ve always wanted to start a bullet journal, but never got around to it. I even have a few unused planners and journals sitting around, so this is probably a good time to start. I really enjoyed this post! Thanks for sharing!

  • I took knitting classes with my mum before lockdown started & it was challenging, but fun once I got the hang of it! I’ve also wanted to started a bullet journal, but I never took the plunge.
