Cross-Stitch Your Phone Sitch

It’s Get A Hobby Week here on The Frisky, so today we’re craving something to do that produces something we can keep. Oh, perfect, how about this cross-stitch iPhone case and kit?! Pick the color case you want and it comes complete with needle, thread, and some design templates you can use. Alternatively, if you were one of those kids who always had to color outside the lines (freak!), you can create your own custom design using your imagination. Fun!

Hobby Road Test: (Re)Joining A Swim Team

I am a hobby kind-of-girl. As in, I very much enjoy them and have dabbled in a lot of them. Over the years, I have joined both bowling and pool leagues. I’ve gotten into scrapbooking, as a way to preserve memories of life and keep records of the best articles I’ve written over the years. I’ve learned how to Rubik’s Cube. About eight months ago, I started taking improv classes. And more recently, I embarked on a photography mission, using my camera less for photos of friends and more for artfully composed shots that I then print and hang in my cubicle.

Approval Matrix: Sexy Vs. Unsexy Hobbies For Dudes

There are three hobbies in particular that a guy can have that are guaranteed to make me consider him a candidate for the (still open!) position of “Future Baby Daddy”: surfing (moan!), cooking (swoon!), and anything involving wood (faint!).

(Please note that my idea of “brawny” is anything that’s mostly physical in nature. “Artsy” applies to anything that’s, duh, art-related and/or nerdy or intellectual. Just so we’re clear.) For the record, I think having any hobby is awesome and admirable — but some of them are just more girl boner-inducing than others, ya know? Check out more Get A Hobby Week content here!

Baking: The Best Recipe After A Good Heart-Breaking

Since I’ve only had three serious boyfriends in my life, I can’t really say I only become Betty C**ker when I have a breakup … because that would have only been three times. But I can say that every single time I get my feelings hurt by a man, which unfortunately is more frequently than I’d ever like to admit, I don’t find myself in a carton of my favorite Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip ice cream. I find myself in the kitchen. My baking skills became more than just a way to ease my heartbreak; it became the best way to get back in the game and meet someone new.

After the jump, find out how baking got me back in the game and a recipe for chocolate chip banana bread! Keep reading »
