Photo Hunt 53: Hobby

I just joined Photo Hunters. Members of Photo Hunters post photos every week based on the theme chosen by the members. This week's theme is about hobby. You can also join here.

I like baking, cake decorating and crafts (e.g parchment craft, cross-stitching, bead craft, candle making) but I must admit that I am not very creative. Currently, I am learning the basics of cake decorating. In the past, I'm also into cross-stictching, beaded jewelry and parchment craft.

Cake decorating projects. I'm still a neophyte that's why my designs are not refined yet. But I'm learning...it's fun!
























Here are my cupcake projects. The colors are not well-coordinated becasue the icing is really intended for the clowns. The figures and flowers are practice for our final project next week.




Cross-stitching. I haven't done this in a while. If you notice, I am yet to finish the face. I have the framed ones back in the Philippines.



















Bead Craft. I did a lot of bracelets and necklaces made of beads including pearls before I went to Qatar.
























Parchment Craft. Ilove this craft! It's very easy to do.

I love crafts but I'm not very creative. I usually rely on patterns or books for my design.

You've done wonderful work, Nina. I used to do a lot of Native American style been work with little seed beeds, and I've done cross stitch as well as many other things, haha. Visit my blog to see what hobbies are my most active ones now.

You're doing great with the cakes! I took a class but never developed the skill. The cross stitch is beautiful. So are the parchment crafts, though I have never heard of that before.

My mom took a cake decorating course to learn how to do a wedding cake. She made it for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary and it was four tiers and gorgeous. She taught me and I made almost all of my daughters cakes for her birthdays. I also made some for other people as a side job while in school. Now I like to make the rolled sugar cookies with almond flavor and ice them with the Wilton cookie icing. My daughter will be 21 and she still loves them.

Amazing! You're very, very creative! I love the idea of learning cake decorating but I guess I should first learn how to bake one. :) My husband enjoys cooking and recently learned to bake a few goodies. In fact he made me some carrot cupcakes for my birthday last month with the help of my 3-yr old son. :)

Thanks for sharing your terrific hobbies.
