    I thought it would be fun to have a place to share pics of the creative things we’re coming up with to fill our days.
    Baking cookies? Learning an instrument? Building a dog house?
    Share pics and maybe give someone some needed inspiration.

    I’ll start. I dug out a coloring book I got for Christmas of 2018.

    That is FUCKING COOL!! I never thought something like that was possible?! I want room just to do that lol. I haven't skated in years.


    Finished a Han Solo ROTJ blaster prop replica. Modified a couple of blaster stands to better fit my shelves. I'll probably do some weathering to my stormtrooper blaster replica next lol.

    LOTS of dryfire practice with my defensive firearms, HEMA drills, college school work, working out in the garage, and the occasional video game. Yep, keeping busy lol.

    Uh, I got DOOM.

    Creativity-wise, I'm doing more Transformers customizing and working on my TF fiction writing. Want to get back into drawing.

    I have a number of projects I've been behind on. Custom figures and so on. (Not to mention house cleaning)

    Just finished this one the other day.

    Up next more figures and burning stuff to disk so I have more space on my computer's hard drive.

    I picked up a Gold's Gym recumbent exercise bike that I need to put together. Since the quarantine, I haven't been active and have been slightly gaining weight, so I need to get some exercise in to stay in shape.

    [​IMG]

    I'm a cosplayer, so I've been working on a few new costumes and revamping and updating a couple of my older ones. In addition, I converted one of our rooms into a portrait studio for costume photoshoots.

    My wife and I have been catching up on Black Friday dvd's that we haven't watched. Our last three movies were Peppermint last night, Jumanji and Crazy Rich Asians a few days before.

    I just opened up Mortal Kombat 11 a few days ago, and picked up Doom Eternal for the PS4 over the weekend.

    I have a TON of comics that I've been meaning to read as well. Also, I have a bunch of Marvel Legends that I haven't opened up and assembled the BAF's.

    I got a collection of 1500 video game titles. I got about 400 I never played. Since I'm staying indoors for who knows how long, I can catch up to them.

    I bought Resident Evil 2 remake in January for PS4 and I'm nervous to play because of any possible jump scares. I frakin' hate them. I honestly can't say I'll play this weekend because I ain't got sh!t to do until I'm free to go out into the world driving at 200 mph while singing the theme to 12 oz. Mouse.

    OUTTA MY WAY I'M DRUNK AS HELL!

    That's not bad then. At least you weren't going to do an entire room or half(or whole garage), and just woefully under purchased lol.
