    I have heard many people say they love scrap booking. You already have your pictures, so the cost of the other supplies would be very low. smile

      Thanks JThomp42!  I have done some scrapbooking but haven't in a while.  I hope to pick it back up before my daughter graduates!

    Crocheting is a hobby that I have recently taken up, and it is not something that is that boring either! You can make a variety of things from stuffed animals to sweaters to backpacks to pencil cases...you get the drift! It is not too expensive to purchase a few hooks and a shade or two of yarn. There are also many tutorials on the Internet that can show you how exactly to do it.

      Thanks for the note!  I made my first double crochet scarf just over the past few weeks, I absolutely loved the way it relieves stress!

    Simple sewing for the purpose of making crafts is a win-win for not only are projects you can do with these skills fun and economical, they can be very useful.

    Knitting, Crochet and sewing. You can knit warm socks for winter for you to wear in any color you like.

      There are A LOT of knitting tutorials on the Internet, but the ones that I find most helpful are the ones on Youtube. You can pause the video, and take it step by step.

    Any craft that you can sell, such as crocheting or knitting or jewelry making or woodworking, etc. List the finished project on Etsy after enjoying the crafting experience and then make a profit once people discover your work!

    To get started gold panning, you need only a $5 pan, a $1 vile, and a legal place to pan.  Many state parks offer free public places to pan.  Also, it is inexpensive to join a club, where you will gain access to club owned claims, as well as participate in social events.  It's a very inexpensive hobby, with an excellent return on your investment, if you have a little luck and skill.
