Organizing Our Coin Collection

Collecting stamps, bills and coins is just one of the many hobbies that my husband has had since he was in high school. He has actually accumulated a lot over the years, and he has his own system of keeping them organized. But sometimes, he gets too busy that he hasn’t had the time to organize his collection.

Anyway, he’s planning on going through them again and organizing them. He will also be looking for coins that he can trade to other collectors. He said that there are still a number of coins that he would like to have. He’s also thinking of expanding his collection which could include customized coins like those coins online that we saw a couple of days ago. We think that it would be cool if we could have our own customized coin that has a design that best represents our family. For now though, we are just thinking of how to properly arrange the many coins that we have here are home.

Home Winemaking

Winemaking is a hobby that can be enjoyable and rewarding. If you like to host dinners at home, your guests will surely appreciate the fact that you’re serving them homemade wine. Getting started is easy and information about the basics of wine making is readily available online. You can invest in your own wine making equipment which can now be bought online. You can even choose to enroll in classes that teach the basics of wine making.

With the proper information, a great deal of practice and right tools and equipment, you will soon be on your way to making high quality wine. Who knows, you might be able to turn your hobby into a profitable venture.

New Projects

Hubby saw that we have accumulated a lot of cardboard around the house that he decided to make use of them. He made miniature houses, a pizza place and a retail store and painted them with acrylic based paint.

Here’s a photo of what he came up with:

A Profitable Hobby

 

Aside from collecting stamps and coins, my husband likes to make miniature houses which are mostly made out of popsicle sticks and barbeque sticks. He usually makes them at night while watching the evening news. The projects that he made were initially intended to be part of his personal collection but friends and neighbors who have seen what he has made liked them so much that they offered to buy them (they said they were going to give them away as gifts to friends). Hubby is happy, of course, because he’s not only able to do something that he really enjoys doing but he also gets to earn from them. Not bad, eh? 

Here are some of the miniature houses he has made; the second photo is of a miniature garden which was recently bought by a neighbor:
