First of all I got lucky and and got to turn a hobby into a career, so thats one. Also, remember how I said I start a bunch of projects? My hobbies would be sewing, baking, photography, painting, knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, hiking, gardening along with many other things. I am a very DIY person, instead of buying something I decide I can make it... Half the time I do.
This for example. I made the necklace, the lightbox, and took the picture :)
