The Gibbs Report

Today I'll be discussing the importance of having a hobby.  I believe that it's essential to our mental well being to involve ourselves in activities that we find enjoyable. Participating in sports, learning a craft or simply reading a book all help to distract your mind from things that can threaten you happiness.
 
I myself don't really have much stress in my life but it's never too early to get involved in activities that you find relaxing and enjoyable.


Being the pup of a crafty person I decided to delve into the art of paper crafting. Scrapbooking sounded like it would not only be fun but pretty easy.
Here you'll see that I'm working on color coordinating my papers. I also discovered that the torn edges on the paper gave my project an appealing look.


See mom, isn't this a good choice in papers?  You might also notice the cardboard toilet paper rolls in the picture. I find that recycling materials is a great cost cutter.

You'll have to pardon the poor quality of this last picture. My mom was laughing so hard she couldn't hold the camera still. I don't know what she found so funny. I can only assume that her hobby of taking pictures of me just makes her so happy she wants to laugh.

So there you have it. Hobbies are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.

Does he have to look so darn guilty all the time??! I think you should be able to have a hobby guilt-free. Enjoy, Gibbs.
