Does it seem like every year plays out the same way? You do the same things every time the calendar flips over, so the years lack excitement and blend together. Make a change when 2020 hits by taking on some creative hobbies. These hobbies will make 2020 the most creative and fun year yet.
Scrapbooking is so 2019. The new year will become the year of bullet journaling. This creative hobby lets you organize your life in a single notebook, and since there isn’t a right or wrong way to do it, you can dive right in.
While this is similar to journaling, the notes are short and to the point without a bunch of extra information. Think rapid logging instead of complex “Dear Diary” moments. Write the topic at the top of the page and then create bullets related to the topic.
There are three categories of bullets for each page. Your bullets consist of notes, events, and tasks. Notes are marked with a dash and events are marked with an “O.” Put a dot next to your tasks. Then, when you complete a task, put an X next to it.
You don’t have to be the next Picasso or Rembrandt to take up painting in 2020. First, decide what technique you want to try. Do you like the idea of painting with watercolors, or are you more interested in oils? You can even try your hand at glitter painting. You can use stencils to get started, and eventually, you’ll be ready to put your ideas onto canvas. Get ready to show off your creativity when you take up painting.
Embroidery is the perfect hobby for two reasons. First, it’s a lot of fun, and second, you can turn your newfound talent into gifts. Begin by learning the basics, such as the blanket stitch and cross-stitch. Then, start small with napkins. Eventually, you’ll be ready to tackle quilts and other projects. Be sure to create some customized items that include dates and names for your loved ones.
Does your handwriting leave something to be desired? Do people have to guess at what your invitations and thank-you notes have to say? Has it gotten so bad that you spend top dollar to have everything printed out so you can deliver it? If you answered “yes,” it’s time to embrace the creative art of hand lettering. This is basically like calligraphy, but much easier and without all those stuffy rules. Using your computer’s fonts as a guide and sketch out the letters. Then, dress them up with accents, colors, and more. It won’t be long before you’re a pro.
