My main hobbies - the ones I promptly and factitious-ly reply when people ask me what my hobbies are - are writing and reading. But behind that I have quite a few weird hobbies. I think everyone has them (and I would most certainly, ducks, be interested in know what yours are!) So here are five of my weird and slightly unusual, or less-talked-of hobbies:
#1. Organising books by colour
I love books and I love colours, so it's actually not very surprising that this has become a great big hobby of mine! I just love organising books by colour. The books in my room (I did a great tag about it once here) have been organised in colour for quite a long time now, but this past week I've been doing loads more. The pictures here are all of the three book-cases we have in the hall, with all kinds of books stuffed into one. They were a dreadful mess and my mum asked me if I would like to organise them. (I said, yes, I would! :)
I LOVE organising books. It's just, the best kind of manual work there is. Especially if you do it via colour. It's so much fun!
I did try to keep the genres a little bit together (and the languages of the books - we have quite a lot of books in English as well as in Dutch and also two shelves of French ones), though, but my main way of organising was via colours. Not only is it fun to do, it also looks so beautiful. It's like having a picture frame up - it makes the room look so much artsy and happy and, obviously, rainbow-like. Oh, the endless things books can do! :)
As I said, this week I've been doing a lot of book organising-via-colour. We're kind of having a big house tidy-up for the Summer Holidays, and, really, I'm just loving it. I've organised about four bookcases, and I'm still ridiculously proud of them whenever I walk by. Look at them with a huge grin on my face, I do.
#2. Discovering things in books
#3. Drawing out outfitsPeriod Drama Forever' board and then copying them over in sketches in one of my bookies.
#4. Writing little letters to peoplehere. Call me weird, I don't care. :-P It's just so much fun, try it.
#5. Designing covers
So there you go! Five of my hidden talents, uh, I mean, hobbies.
What are some of your unusual, side-kick hobbies?
