The majority of folks were interested in these, so we are going to throw a few things out there. Lots of this stuff are things that we love, so we hope that you find them fun, too. But hey, if you get one fun idea to entertain yourself for a few hours, it’s a win right?
First up, a couple of links:
Hoopla is one of my favorites and lots of libraries have this available as part of their library card. Check with yours! Right now they are doing 20 titles a month free to borrow! Lots of books, audio books, movies and TV.
If you can get this, they have a bunch of Janet Evonavich books, and she is one of our favorite authors! I promise some laugh out loud moments in every one of her number series books, plus two super sexy hunks who will make anyone happy. If not through Hoopla, check her out anyway! Your library may have other options to digitally check out books and audio books.
Here is a link to Amazon’s search of our absolute favorite book of ALL time. I am serious, the first time I read this, I walked around with a goofy grin and a spring in my step for TWO weeks. I have since read it again, and saw the movie twice, and it still makes me happy. Read the book first. The movie is well done, but the book is better.
For folks into photography, I can highly recommend this site:
Sign up for their free newsletter it has great tips and tutorials every week. Explore all the free articles. They even have several sections devoted to fun new techniques to try at home. I have never used their courses or ebooks, just the free stuff, and I get a lot out of it.
If that is not enough, check out the photography courses here:
Joel Sartore is an amazing National Geographic photographer (check out his Photo Ark project too!). His courses are terrific; they work for both the beginning photographer, and those who have been shooting for a while. Done in easy-to-understand language with lots of great tips and ideas. Sometimes, these courses are also available on Hoopla, win-win! Right now you can try the Great Courses free for a whole month! You could easily get through all the photography classes and have time to learn Spanish, or whatever else catches your fancy.
Next up here is a fun one:
Yeah, we all have coloring books, right? If you don’t, feel free to download this one and color away, but once you are done, then what? How about laying an old switch plate cover on the back, tracing around it and adding a 1/2″ to each side, cut an x where the switch comes through. Cut it out and use Mod Podge or diluted white glue to put it in place. Groovy instant decorative switch plate! You can also use the colored pages to make a cool mat for a favorite photo, or a card, or even paper beads!
Here is one more project. Let’s make Dolly Bunny Slippers!
Hope you have a cozy place like this:
Please stay home, wash your hands, and take care of yourself and your loved ones. Oh, and take a walk if you can, and get some sunshine. Gotta take care of that mental health, too. We will try to do one or two of these a week for a bit; we hope it will help.
