knitting!!! You can make awesome gorgeous scarves and blankets it’s addicting. Also maybe a new fitness routine? Something fun like yoga or a dance class or Zumba. Then you have the added bonus of hobby+ Being fit.

If you already like certain things like sewing and stuff, I would give yourself a new purpose for them. Instead of wedding, think birthdays and special occasions. I love to make cakes for peoples’ birthdays as well as quilts. I know that I will enjoy the making and that the recipient will enjoy the gift. (:

I would use your crafts to make side money! I was bored a couple years back, knew I enjoyed designing jewelry and now have a shop on Etsy!

What if you made things for other weddings, to sell? Then there’d be a reason for doing it.

Crocheting is easy to learn on Youtube.  There’s always cooking or baking!  I go through these phases when I pick a type of food and try recipes for weeks.  Right now I’m fixated on dim sum dumplings. Darling Husband is in hog heaven.

I totally agree with the knitting suggestion! I recently learned and now I can’t stop knitting things for people. I’m knitting socks for my dad now!

@renwoman:  Have fun with the violin! I had to learn it for a class that went towards my degree, and I never quite got the hang of it. I’m better with wind instruments.

What about Scrapbooking?   I’m sure you have many pictures of putting your wedding together, showers, wedding day, and honeymoon. 

I made my mom a what I call a “Celebration Calendar” many years ago and she still loves it.  There are no days of the week, only numbered squares.  I wrote in family & her friend’s birthdays / anniversaries in the squares so she doesn’t have to write it on her appointment calendar every year.  For the upper picture area of calendar I made a collage’ of things she likes, friendsphotographs, and holiday stuff for that month.  

You can print monthly calendar from internet on cardstock.   You can use sheet protectors in a binder for a desk or attach pretty ribbon for binding and hang it up.

Have fun and be creative!

If you have a community art center, take a class!  My town has one, and I’m starting to learn ceramics (wheel work, not hand built).
