Creative Outlet

I have always had some kind of hobby going on in my life.  My first was stamp collecting (does anyone still do that?) and then my Dad got me into some coin collecting.  In my teen years they came out with trading cards for Kiss, Elvis, the movie Grease, Star Trek the Next Generation, etc.  I did the non-sport trading cards for a while and still have quite a few.  About that same time, I started getting lots of jewelry, figurines and so on with unicorns.

Fast forward to the late 80s or early 90s… the start of the state quarters got me back into a little coin collecting.  Also working as a cashier, I would see old coins come into my register and ask to trade them out.  Then my daughter came, and a Disney and kids DVD collection started.

A recent card I did for a friend out of state.

Now a days it is my rubber stamping making all my own greeting cards.  And of course, writing.  I have done that since junior high school.  I would be lost without a creative outlet.  My next hobby… I want to save money to get a new camera and really work on my photography.  I will keep myself busy one way or another.  How about you?
