Since only recently, my answer to the question "What is your hobby" can be somewhat generic -- reading, watching movies and TV series and internet surfing. Though it can be justified that they can different forms of learning, they are not as productive or would give me a sense of accomplishment. My EQ was quite low and I am for immediate gratification. However, that can only get me so far.
Early this year, I rediscovered my love for cross-stitch. Since Christmas season is fast approaching and since I'm on "tipid" mode, I entertained the thought of giving out some of my cross-stitch pieces as gifts. However, I'm not as prolific as I want. Ever since February this year, I only finished one complete piece and I sent this to my mom in the US as my birthday gift for her. I started a piece meant for my mother-in-law but I'm not even halfway done. If I want to at least make a dent on my Christmas list, I need to come up with a DIY project that can be easily duplicated and replicated and which will not make a big dent in my pocket.
However, this type of gifts can only be appreciated by girls. I still have to look for DIY projects for the guys in my team. I found another one in pinterest which I can hopefully replicate. If ever I am successful, I will definitely post it as I will top any craft project I ever made.
