So many new things

Where does the time go to?   I've worked it out, time goes into learning new things all the time.  My good friend Nan told me about Swap-bot because I wanted to swap cross stitch items. I checked it out and joined up.  Now I'm in a cross stitch bookmark swap and a cross stitch surprise swap.  BUT - in reading the profiles of different people I discovered words like "Inchies",  "Atc's" and "Zentangles".  What are these things?  They say curiosity killed the cat - well I'm not a cat but to be on the safe side I did a Google search to set my curious mind at rest.   Oh Deary me!!!  I shouldn't have done that.  Found:  three more things to add to keep me occupied.  I realise I have been Zentangling for many years but back then it was called abstract art or doodling.  I actually have some drawings done in January 1979 which were a form of zentangling.  Inchies, now there's something a bit different, or should I say a bit smaller, I could even do some zentangling on them.   ATC's - now I can do that!  
All I have to do is take a bit of time from "here" and put it "there" and then take some time from "there" and put it with the "other there" .... Hmmm - I think I'll just take it day by day whatever mood takes me on the day that's what I will do.  My favourites will always be cross stitch and art - but I can find the time for Inchies, ATC's and Zentangles too.   Variety is the spice of life so I guess I gotta lota living to do yet.
Happy stitchin (or hobbying) till next time.
