My husband is a huge comic fan…Batman, Deadpool and the like. He and his friend go every week to the local comic shop to look through the newest editions. He has a whole collection of comic books that are all over the house. He’s collected so many that he picked up some special boxes from a different comic shop. Of course my first thought was…there are special boxes for this??? And you pay $9 for them? I just shrug and shake my head. There could be worse hobbies.
So I officially classify him as a geek. I’ve always thought this though…his shelf in our bedroom is full of Star Wars books and LEGO figures. There’s even a pair of Darth Vader earphones in my house…
Now I’m pretty OCD about things around my house. I love bright colors and abstract so it seems chaotic but there is an order to everything. The books on the shelf match in color, size and they way they’re organized. Every picture is exactly the same distance from one another and I have floating book cases that hold specific books determined by what’s around them. Like I said….crazy OCD. So when my husband brought home these ghastly white cardboard boxes I immediately freaked out. He has to keep them somewhat accessible because he goes through his books all the time. Which means that it’s going to be visible to my sensitive eyes. My solution…decorate the box! I love to scrapbook. It’s just an expensive, time consuming hobby. I don’t have a lot of room to do it so I tend to keep everything stored away and it’s a hassle to drag everything out so I don’t do it a lot. But for this…I’m invested!!
Dividers (for the comic hero and for each series):
It’s a work in progress and takes a lot of time and effort but when it’s done it will be kickass!
I’ve read through some of the comics to get inspiration for decorating and they don’t appeal at all to me. I do enjoy some of the movies and it’s neat to know some of the background stories but I’m okay if my husband just tells it to me instead of having to read it for myself. The new show Arrow is based on the Green Arrow comics which are actually pretty interesting. Plus the lead character is cute so I’m hoping the show develops well. So I’m not a comic geek but I do love me some Buffy. I consider myself only half-geek…I’m currently in the middle of season 4. I only have time to watch on my vacations so every 6 months I get a season done. Fingers crossed that one day I’ll finish!
Take time to vote today if you haven’t already done so.
Until next time!
