My go-to-activity is Acrylic Dirty Pours. I love them. Just mix any colors together, pour over canvas, then tilt and swirl.

I'm an all around crafter. I knit, crochet, embroidery, tat, sew and do all other kinds of crafts. So I have little time to get bored. Right now I am working on a Poke' mon afghan for one of my grandsons. I've already made 2 grandsons afghans, then I have 2 new grand daughters to make afghans for. I love all kinds of crafting, whether it has to do with sewing or yarn work or not. I can go out in the woods and find a piece of wood and make something out of it, or just go find a piece of junk and make something out it. I just love crafts.

Crocheting is my GO TO craft when I am bored. It helps me to relax, and I can watch a movie on television while I crochet.

When I am bored, I usually pick up a crochet project that I keep around. Often work on it in sections, so I just keep it going. Simple.

When I am bored I like to cross stitch, read, or check out this site for new inspirations.

I love to do scrap crafting when I am bored.

I like to crochet or read.

I crochet or check here for some jewelry making inspiration.

Currently,I make beaded spiders or I mess with my polymer clay,or watch YouTube.

I crochet when I'm bored. Lace doilies are especially good a relieving boredom, especially when they're challenging.

when I am bored I check out this site for something to make . I enjoy all kinds of crafts to many to mention.
