@outgoingcutie15:  Can you give us some direction? What sorts of things do you like to do in your free time when you’re not on the internet? I think you’d naturally gravitate to doing those things, right? 

 

It’s kind of hard to just take up any random hobby without taking into account what you like already … i mean there are hobbies like hiking, rock climbing… then there’s knitting, crochet, sewing, crafts…. reading, making music, collecting things …………………………………

@outgoingcutie15:  Sports! It’s good for you physically (burns calories), emotionally (releases endorphins and gives you a sense of accomplishment), and socially (helps you make new friends).

Perhaps mosaic or leadlighting? Or knitting or quilting? All those are great for interior design. Perhaps take some art classes.

I love physical hobbies – I do swing and rocknroll dancing twice a week and meet great people through it, get fit and have fun – plus it gives you chances to get out at night social dancing.

@outgoingcutie15:  It’s very similar to stained glass, it involves setting different pieces of glass into a frame to create a design

checkout meetup.com. They have great groups in most locations or you can start one yourself. Its a great way to find a hobby and meet new people.

I recently joined 30’s girl one and they have activites from happy hour, dinners, plays, hiking, dog meetups, game nights, etc everything!

Others have listed some great ideas.

Since you like crafty stuff have you tried scrapbooking? You can get basic supplies at craft stores (wait for sales) and even Walmart (heck they may have a meetup group for this even!)

Also, maybe take a cake decorating class or watch online tutorials and give it a go yourself. It can be fun to sculpt in fondant and make cakes or cupcakes for people. It can be a real art skill

Or simply peruse pinterset for fun crafts. Maybe make your own napkin rings, or centerpiece, or headboard or wall art. the options are endless.

@outgoingcutie15:  Check out http://www.craftsy.com and review the classes to see what might interest you. If you sign up (without purchasing a class) they will email you all kinds of sales and coupon codes. They have everything, jewelry making, sewing, cake decorating, cooking etc. once you purchase the class you download it and you get to keep it so you can go back and review it anytime you want.

@ThreeMeers:  I jsut checked out  meetup.com–that’s pretty cool I had no idea. When life slows down a bit I am definitely joining a few groups around here!
