Hey guys! I hope you’re all having a relaxing Sunday! I got called in to work earlier and help a student write a paper on microbiology. It wasn’t all bad actually. Anyway, this past week, I’ve been working on my bookshelves and rearranging them ((again)). I got a rug for my bookshelves and I even made garland to hang on top of my shelves. I finally finished it yesterday … and in time for Shelfie Sunday! I wanted to show you my finished product! It’s a little packed but I don’t know, I kind of like it.
(If you’d like to see a list of my complete book inventory, you can click on the ‘My Shelf’ link on the menu bar, or click here.)
Here’s a closer look at my flower pom-pom garland! I made them using tissue paper and string, and taped them to my ceiling! It’s really easy to make but it’s time-consuming!
What do you guys think? How do you like to organize your books? Do you guys like your bookshelves packed or just one row of books per shelf? I also filled my shelves with little trinkets. I have Nintendo Amiibos and little Disney figurines, vases, a box of Harry Potter Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, a case of all my bookmarks, a mini jewelry box, a Fossil can with my watches, my Pandora bracelet box, Imagine Dragons CD, and my Anaklusmos/Riptide pen (from the Percy Jackson series). Do you like having other items on your shelves or just books? Do you prefer having all your books vertical or horizontal or do you like to mix it up? I’ve had to place books behind each other to fit more books. Do you have any tips on increasing space in a bookshelf? Let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
