Too many hobbies......Wwwhhaatt??

I am one of the lucky ones and I get to stay at home and take care of my house and baby. In between chores and diaper changes I am always looking for new hobbies. Those of you that know me, know I have always been a huge scrapbooker (is that a word?). I also love paper crafts. I guess I just love making things. Lately my mind has been going a mile a minute thinking about all the things I could do at home. Sewing is something that seems like a lot of fun to me. I found a pattern for nursing covers and I am thinking about making them to sell along with matching burp cloths. Even if I am not extremely successful with them, I would love to give them as gifts and plus, sewing is always a good talent to have.
Baking is also a passion of mine. We just moved into our new home and it has a double oven, WOO WOO, so I have been trying out new recipes and different goodies.
The last thing I have started is EBAY. To me, it is fun, super easy and brings in some extra cash. So why not right?
Now, some people out there might be negative and say that I have too many things that I want to do, but it's ok. I do have a lot that I am interested in, but I don't think that is a bad thing. Look at my girls Martha and Oprah. They have LOTS of different things they are involved in and look where it got them. I am not saying I will be anywhere near as successful as them, but I do believe that anything you put your mind to, you can do. If you are passionate about one thing or lots of things, I say ignore your critics and go for it, that's what I am doing. Who knows, maybe one day you will see my brand of Nursing Covers and Burp Cloths on store shelves.
Wish full thinking? I think not!
