I adore memes. In other online journal incarnations, I've been known to do nothing but; in this one, I've largely avoided it because I really am doing my best not to feel as though I'm copping out.
Of course, if I feel that way, it's my own fault. A good meme can be fascinating, and so I'm giving in today, possibly in lieu of a real post later, possibly not. I'm doing my best to turn this into a guilt-free Sunday.
Here now, attributable to Grumperina's influence and credited to Bella Knitting, my feelings on creative interests. I also like the way Grumperina did it, so I'll do it similarly (with my own twists).
1. I have no interest (in doing it myself).
shibori, cartooning, toy/doll making, macrame, flower arranging*, calligraphy, video/filmmaking, needlepoint
2. a) Would love to try it.
canning (fruits & vegetables), tile/glass mosaic, hand quilting, decorating, stained glass, polymer clay, dyeing, spinning, machine embroidery
b) Might like to try it.
jewelry-making, paper-making, painting, inventing
3. I do or have dabbled in it.
Do: crochet, beading, stamping, graphic design
Have done, WILL do again: dance (swing, C&W), entertaining, gardening, gift wrapping, storytelling, sewing
Have done, may do again: glass painting, poetry, acting, drawing, music, scrapbooking, dance (tap, raks sharqi [belly dance]), soap making
Have done, not likely to do again: cross-stitch, candlemaking, stage work
4. Love it! This is my thing.
writing (fiction, essays), knitting, baking, cooking, photography (landscapes, scenery, botanic gardens)
* This is mostly due to allergies and fragrance sensitivities.
