I've been scrapbooking for about 10 years now and my husband has been flying airplanes for about 8 years. Up until now we've been supportive to each other but kept our hobbies to ourselves. The last few months he's been pressuring me to fly with him (just the thought makes me break out in a sweat!) We joke around about it a lot but I know he's really serious. And I'm REALLY scared. Recently I told him "OK....since you want me to share your hobby then I want you to share mine. I'll spend an afternoon in your airplane if you'll spend an afternoon in my scraproom scrapbooking with me." Of course I thought he'd run screaming at the thought of being cooped up in that little room with nothing but paper, scissors and glue. To my surprise.....and dismay he agreed to the deal. Boy, I really stuck my foot in my mouth there. Just wondering what hobbies do you all share with your spouses? Does your husband scrapbook with you? I've been married 25 years and the only "hobby" we've ever shared is kids, LOL!

Bill and I enjoy travel as a hobby and we love to snorkel together although we rarely do that anymore. He bought me tanks and I plan to learn to scuba dive but I don't know when.

I do not want Bill to scrapbook with me. Our taste is completely different, he is not neat and particular and he looks at layouts I do and if there is a 2 x 2 empty box somewhere he suggests I get another picture and put it there so I don't waste space. Plus he does not take care of things and looses everything. I know where everything is. With him scrapping with me I'd never find things again.

When I want household repairs done or things hung I always ask my son because he does a meticulous job. Bill has no interest in how things look, just the functionality. He painted a wall for me once and painted around the curtains. I never did get all the paint off the balance. Does this sound like a man I want to help me with my scrapbooking?

Once in a while when I'm cooking he comes in and helps. He gets the recipe, turns the heat up and tells me its okay, it will cook faster. He doesn't follow the recipe and its just a frustration for me. His ideas don't work.

One time I ran out for 10 minutes (dinner was aready in the oven - I had turned the oven off). He got hungry and didn't want to wait 10 minutes while I ran to pick up our son at work to bring him home for dinner. SO he made tuna fish. He opened 4 cans of tuna.

He sort of drained it - the tuna was swimming around it all the liquid and he had added a ton of mayonnaise. And onions in huge chunks.

I asked him how he was going to eat it, if he spread it on bread it was so wet it would go right through and make mush of his bread.

He told me he was going to thicken the tuna. I asked how he was going to do that. It's easy he said as he grabbed the flour container.

I asked him what he thought he was going to do and he said he was going to thicken it - he was going to add a cup of flour to it.

That is why we do not share hobbies. Its best he do whatever it is with his license plates all day and I scrapbook. He can be in the room on his computer (he is now) but he cannot cross the line.

My DH was that way with his car. He would take long drives while I scrapbooked. It was perfect. Once the kids were up and out, though, I had no more excuses to stay behind. I now join him on his road trips. I have to admit....they are a blast. I love them. He takes tons of photos for me to scrap, so in a way we share my hobby. The only problem is that I'm never home enough to scrap them!

We joke all the time about how his hobby could kill me and my hobby might give him what....a papercut? LOL! We are both very respectful of each others hobbies but I'm not sure I'm up for sharing.

We go off-roading together. He loves to take the gps, download it and map where we've been. I take pictures and scrapbook our adventures. So, in a way, we are really sharing all hobbies together.

We also love exploring nature, going for walks, watching the northern lights,.. This winter he wants to take me ice fishing - wish me luck!

He doesn't share my hobbies, except to make the necessary impressed noises when I show him my latest pages and cards, and to come along and support my choir concerts. But I have to share his. It would be lovely if I could retreat to my craft corner while he plays in his man-cave. But my man seems physically unable to do any of his stuff alone. He always wants me there with him to hold the ladder, or hand him a tool, or set up the hose for him, or just do the gardening with him to keep him company.

Bless. Ah well, I can't complain. If that's the worst I have to put up with, I'm a lucky lady!

Yes, my husband and I both love traveling and baseball and video games and board games (not the Parker Brothers/Milton Bradley kind, but stuff like Pandemic and Chrononauts). And he actually has spent some time in my craft room - he's made his own album of a summer camp he went to as a kid.

I think some things aren't meant to be shared! The last time he "borrowed" my stuff, he used my plier things (that I use to cut the shanks off of buttons) to cut his toenails! Never again--I got new ones and dared him to touch them. He knows my sewing room and my scrap room are off limits! I think his hobby must be watching tv, so while he does that, I scrap! Sorry, but I don't play well with others when my supplies (and toys) are involved.

How funny. Several mentioned they travelled and took pictures together so we do share that. We both have a camera around our necks at all times on trips. He does take some beautiful photos - what I don't get, he does. And he's been known to take up to 800 in a day so he definitely gets some good ones. He clicks as fast as he can. I am slow and really hold my breath and wait for the perfect shot. But the best pictures can come from either one of our cameras - I never know once they are downloaded onto the computer as to which camera they came from.

Unless I'm in it - then its his camera or he's in it - then its my camera. If we are both in it - it can be either camera.

But I don't want to play with his license plates and I don't want him playing with my scrap stuff.

I think sharing interests is a way to grow as a couple, even after 25 years. I think trying something that interests the other person shows concern for knowing that person better. That said, if you are honestly afraid to fly, I would think he could respect that.

I love roller coasters. My husband didn't really have a lot of experience but wasn't afraid of them. So he went with me, rode in the front car and understood what I loved about it now we can enjoy them together. I don't expect him to want to scrapbook with me, but it couldn't hurt him for an hour. And I could play a video game with him. (He doesn't really have a hobby, mostly he surfs the internet and teaches himself computer things in his spare time.)

My parents have been married for 52 years and agree on nothing except art. My father is an artist and my mother learned early on in their marriage that they could share that. She dabbles herself, but mostly enjoy the art exhibits and artist community he is part of.

Thanks - both of you. It was funny when it happened and its still funny. If I had been 5 minutes later getting home - he would have added the flour to the tuna to thicken it!

He told me that I added flour to thicken things all the time. I told him that was true but I cooked it. I didn't serve him raw flour.

My hubby used my sewing (fabric ONLY) shears for something in the garage on one of his projects. They were never good for fabric again. Now my fabric scissors have large permanent marker all over them SEWING ONLY. I did move the wrecked pair into my papercrafting area. They are ok for cutting tagboard, cardboard, etc.

I remember when I was married to my first husband and we had a beautiful turkey carving set. Just beautiful and made to carve a turkey or ham. Things in the kitchen. They were a very expensive wedding gift.

Then the first Christmas we were married we had a tree and I went into the living room to find him just putting it in the stand and placing it upright.

I told him, "I thought the base was way to big for the stand."

He said, "I got a knife out of the kitchen and worked on it - shaved the bottom all the way around until it fit."

Then end of my nice turkey carving knife set. It was ruined.

But Bill is the one who is into everything and has to be watched constantly. On one of the cruise ships they told me that Bill does not need a wife. He needs a keeper. They were teasing me of course but Bill is into everything.

I scrapbook nearly all of Bill's antics. Some of my books are full of his silliness and antics.

Did you ever see the page I did on Bill's frog? The one where he accidently flashed the woman next door. I've posted that several times and it gets a lot of comments because it is so funny.

Maybe I'll start a thread of funny stories we have scrapped so I don't hijack this thread any further because this really is a great thread!

No I didn't and it was well worth a scrapbook page. I should do that - its going back a ways - this was around 2007!

We weren't married yet - I lived in Georgia and Bill had a home in Florida. He was visiting for a couple day and tagged along with me to get my eyebrows waxed.

Jenny (the person who always did my eyebrows) heated a wax strip and then placed it in the perfect position under my eyebrows, pressed on it and let it cool slightly, then pulled it off. Bill watched quietly as we prepared to do my other eyebrow. We were not paying attention to him. Now I know better than to leave him unattended.

He picked up the strip she used on my first eyebrow which was still slightly warm. He put it on his chin and pressed it on real good. Then he let it get good and cool.

Then he got everyone's attention in the salon when he yelped! He had not shaved that morning and had a bit of stubble and that wax strip got every bit of it - and then some.

His yell was loud enough that everyone getting manicures and pedicures stopped what they were doing to see who was injured. And he was injured. His chin turned a bright beet red in that spot and was completely raw for a long time.

That was in 2007. This is 2013. That spot is still slightly red and when he doesn't shave you can really see it because nothing grows there!

Frau, we're coaster people, too! We were just at Knott's Berry Farm and rode the Xcelerator TEN times 9 in the front car, and once in the back. Rocket launch from 0-82 MPH in 2.3 seconds, 205 feet straight up, and then straight down again. And SMOOTH as butter! Our new favorite ride.

DH and I have a lot of similar interests - we share some hobbies, some hobbies aren't exactly shared but they're related and we share ideas and tools and stuff, and some hobbies are strictly separate.

No, my boyfriend do not share our hobbies. However, we ARE supportive of each others' hobbies. He plays racquetball with his friends. He's been doing it for over 20 years. I have never even been to his gym. That's his time to be with his buddies, away from everything, including me. I totally support that. My hobbies are crafting and photography. He gets involved in so far as buying me things, critiquing (when I ask for it) and carrying my photography stuff when I'm shooting. We spend time together and we spend time apart. I wouldn't have it any other way. However, if he flew planes I would definitely want to be part of those adventures once in a while. It sounds like a lot of fun!

On one cruise someone told me that Bill does not need a wife - he needs a keeper. This is true.

Living with him is an adventure.

I'm scanning scrapbook pages right now and I'm finishing up 2008 so the books can be printed.

I just scanned the one with the half-million bottles of Zephyr Hills water. I remember sitting at my desk and he seemed very busy on the computer. Then he said, "I got it!"

I was a bit afraid to ask him what he got because he's very dangerous at auctions. He bought a little over a half-million bottles of Zephyr Hills bottled water and put it on our credit card. The credit card is paid every month - drafted from checking account so we never pay interest.

It took 11 of the big tractor-trailer trucks to get it here. It filled the back yard of one of our rental houses which was vacant, his sister's rental house back yard and the back yard of his brother's house (the properties join in the back). It also filled our garage here. It took him about 2 months to sell it all but he did.

Wherever we went we took the van and he stopped at places everywhere and sold water, mostly to convenience stores. We were in an antique mall one day and I fell in love with a cameo ring with a rectangular stone. It was $175.00. Bill was going to pay for it and then asked to see the owner. He asked her if she would take a van load of bottled water instead and she did! It was a great deal for her because he was selling them for a really low price!

Anyway, the problem was he thought he could move the pallets around with his pallet jack. Wrong. The day after the water was delivered he had to buy a forklift to move it all.

It didn't take him long to break his forklift. Right now it is at a consignment place - he said someone may want to buy it and fix it. He says he's an old army guy and when they break something they really break it! I think he's right.

I gave Bill about 3 pairs of scissors which are in his desk drawer so he doesn't bother mine. Love the padlock idea. However, wouldn't work with Bill. In Special Forces they had to know lock picking - it was part of being a Green Beret. He taught the lock picking classes to other Green Berets. So locks aren't going to work for me.

Wow! All I can say is wow!!

Ryan and I have no problem w/ sharing hobbies. He's got his own tools also, but most of the time he uses them for some piece of electronics he's fixing. There are a lot of times I'd rather bring him to the crop w/ me. I go because I never get the chance to crop at home, but I can't deal w/ the gossip (or when my mp3 player dies) He'll take the pics I'm having a hard time w/ and make the page for me. It's nice because he's got a different view on the memory and the kids see the event or memory as a whole.

He's a software developer and I used to write code so I can give him tips or advice on his projects as well.

It's nice having someone who knows how painstaking making a page can be and doesn't tell me it's lame or doesn't understand the point behind it.

Well, just thought I'd give an UPDATE on my original post. Yesterday I flew with my husband for the very first time...and I didn't even throw up! LOL! I'm not sure it's for me and I don't think I'll be sharing this hobby of his too often but he did impress me with his piloting skills. I didn't take a camera because it was a last minute decision. I was too nervous to get any good shots anyway.

So, now it's his turn. Today he took my nephews to a dragstrip and took along the camera to get some good photos to scrapbook with me next weekend. This ought to be interesting. My daughter doesn't think we'll last 5 minutes in my scraproom together. We'll see.....

I am so proud of you Lisa. We have a friend in Miami who flies a private plane and we went from Miami to Key Largo for lunch one day a in August. I loved every minute of it! Didn't bother me at all.

Does your husband want you to just go with him and enjoy or does he actually want you to fly?

You are a scrapbooker! Our cameras are attached to us! What happened?

I keep one or two in my backpack and a small flat one in my pocket. Bill gets mad because I usually have 3 cameras with me, sometimes only 2 but never less than 1! The best scrap moments are so often the ones that aren't planned for.

LOL! I was just going for a luncheon and got dragged to the plane. I had my phone but didn't even think about pictures. I know...hard to believe right? LOL! He wants me to tag along on some of his flight-ins with his flight club. They fly to different airports that sponsor breakfasts or luncheons every Sunday. Now I just have to get up the nerve for longer distances. Next time I'm sure I'll bring my camera. Some of his friends took pictures of the crazy lady who didn't want to fly after we landed.

We share several hobbies and most of them are good photo ops for scrapbooks later, but we each have our own hobbies as well. While I'm scrapping, he's...doing something. Making electronics or working on some gadget or gizmo. He is great to bounce ideas off and is very encouraging when I want to show him something I've made. He doesn't ever come raid my room for tools...in fact it's the opposite. Almost every day I'm in his room rummaging around for some pliers (all the ones I have now used to be his) or some scrap metal or wood or random things. He probably gets so tired of it but he never says anything.

We haven't scrapped yet. He took some pictures today and will probably scrap them next weekend with me. I'm showing him just how much work is involved in one page....beginning with the photos. This guy is never behind the lens. Maybe he'll have a new appreciation for what I do....or he'll think I'm crazy.

You will probably find that you are less afraid of flying all the time. It really is fun! Especially in a small plane.

I wish my husband flew for a hobby! He would not be able to get away without me - I'd always want to go. I'm so glad you gave it a chance!

I share only one hobby with my husband and that is photography.

He does however he does have a habit of using my scissors for the wrong items. But I have now hidden them and worned him I will kick his butt if he uses my scissors. now he asks for a pair when needed.

We have very expensive kitchen knives and he is always using them for cutting non food items.

When my honey was home we shared the hobby of camping! I bought a popup camper a few years ago and furnished it with every item we would need for a long trip. Unfortunately we could never get away for more than a few days here or there. It's always so much fun, relaxing by the campfire, swimming n fishing, biking, n cooking great food. I wish we could get out more, but we work too much! And Juan Armando loves it...its REAL family time!

Dh hunts...I scrap..I even have a t shirt that says He hunts I scrap.
I went pheasant hunting once with him..strange day that...and I went to S Africa in 2007 where I went out a couple days with him but most of the time I stayed around the "camp" (more like a nice resort)..I just went to SA cuz it was a once in a lifetime deal....well he and dd1 are going again next summer..I'm not. He did take me to a scrapbooking store once when we were in Reno, Nv for the SCI (Safari Club Intl.) convention. He browsed with me and made suggestions and asked questions and bought me a bunch of scrapcrap...that is about as close to sharing hobbies as we get. He never complains about my stuff being all over the place and he likes my layouts and brags about them and I happily see him off on his hunting trips (and yay for a few days I'm in charge of the tv remote lol).
