I'm always on the lookout for activities which will act as an outlet for my creative side and there are some hobbies to take up in the new year to boost your creativity. Hobbies and crafts take a bit of experimentation and not all creative crafts and hobbies are for everyone, but once you've found that pastime, it can be turned into a lifelong passion. Who knows, you might even be able to turn it into a business. So here are some hobbies to take up in the new year to boost your creativity (and maybe your bank balance!).
There was a knitting renaissance a few years ago, with celebrities spotted clutching their knitting needles on film sets and extolling the virtues of this relaxing pastime. I love knitting. I'm not very good at it and I'll do a few rows here and there whilst my mother puts me to shame with her patchwork blankets that take her all of about 5 minutes to put together. (Don't you just hate it when they do that?!) I do find it very relaxing though, even if I haven't quite got to the stage where I've actually created a garment... or anything which has a shape for that matter. But I'll get there through sheer perseverance and a multitalented mother. This is just one of the hobbies to take up in the new year to boost your creativity.
