Instagram – Meet The New Book Box

1 year and 4 months.

Wow. That´s how long my Book Box on Instagram lasted. Pretty inpressive, if you ask me. I thought I´d give up much quicker. But I set a goal and I even reached beyond that goal. Now…

It´s time, though, to slowly send the old book box into retirement and let the new generation take over.

But before I introduce you to the new addition let´s take a moment to appreciate the old one.

Old and beaten but still wonderful. When I started out taking pics with this box it still had 4 removable legs.

Now, the box has one leg missing ( it´s somewhere in the field in the next village ) and 2 legs broke off. The box now has one remaining leg.

I will miss using this box. Not so much the fact that it´s a real pain in the ass to carry it around ( because, it truly was a tad bulky and didn´t fit into any backpack or bag ). No. I´ll miss using this for creativity purposes.

The box will stay a part of my deco in the house.

As for the new kid on the block…

It´s much smaller. Much handier. It fits in all my bags and doesn´t take up half the space in my car trunk.

The box itself is smaller than a large paperback book. But don´t worry. I wasn´t planning on stuffing a book inside the box anyways.

Morgana´s Book Box on Instagram is getting a tiny make over with this little cute baby.

Tadaaaaa!!

Isn´t it cute?

The little inscript on the lower left corner? IT WAS ALREADY THERE! * faint *

As if some higher power wanted me to put the first book box out of it´s misery. And besides, a million ideas flooded my brain when my eyes caught this little gem. A win / win for me 2x over.

Normally, I dislike replacing stuff with new things ( because if it´s not broke, there´s no need for a replacement). In this case, though… It was kind of necessary.

 

So, there ya have it. Be sure to stay tuned for more, new Instagram features  with and without the new book box.

If you haven´t already then just click here and say hi.

I´d love to chat.

Much love,

Morgana ❤

Instagram- Oh, how I love you!

It´s been almost a year and I can say, without a doubt, that my Instagram project is the best thing that could have happened to me. I´ve met so many great people and have seen so many wonderful book recommendations….. It´s overwhelming in the best way possible! I´ve also learned that not everything has to be about promoting books. It´s also about capturing moments and making memories. I might have used my children once or twice, LOL…. but that, too, was worth it. Before I go all emotional on you guys…. let me show my latest Instagram creations…. Ready? I hope you enjoy. xoxo

Happt Thursday!!! Only one more day and I can do my official dance around the coffee table and celebrate the weekend again! 🤓😉😄 My lazy days will be well spent with reading and decorating the house for Halloween!🎃🕷🕸🦇 Which will be fun because people in my town don't really celebrate Halloween. Our house will be the only spooky looking house 😂 Which reminds me of a story I read a while back… 🎃BOOK BOX FEATURE🎃 for 'Beautiful Darkness' (Caster Chronicles #2) by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. Say what you want about this story… I think it's cute and so adventurous😄😍 Perfect time of the year for a reread, don't ya think? Okay, instapeople… I gotta get these million + reviews done. Hope you all enjoy your day. Share the 📖💜 . . . . . #autumn #pumpkin #bookstagram #books #ilovecolors #bookfeature #youngadult #fantasy #hardcoverbooks #beautifuldarkness #kamigarcia #bookphotography #germany

Fall pic 2017.

She's weird, she's quirky, she's my baby. 💜 Caught her smelling my books… again. Life is never boring with that child💜💜 . I saw a post from my fellow ghettostagrammer @fetteredmatriarch and I was so touched by her personal #5piecesofselflove list. Kacy did amazing and I love her for being so brave to self- love.💗💗 . There's a fine line between self love and arrogance but Kacy nailed it. Self love is important for everyone. So, here are my #5piecesofselflove . . 💜 I love that I'm organized. Many have said that I have an OCD but in reality I just enjoy being organized. Makes my life easier. 💜I love my own food. Yupp. I'm a fab cook and can make a mean meal from scratch😉 💜I love that I'm a giver. Whether it's food or clothes or a helping hand… I give and it makes me feel good. 💜I love my "live and let live" mind-set. Having that makes room for the important things that really matter in life. 💜 I love that I'm fierce. I don't shy away from people or problems. I confront them with full force ASAP. Otherwise, I'll get more wrinkles than I already have. So, that's me. A short version of who I am. I wasn't always like this. It took time and alot of learning from mistakes but I got to the point where I truly love myself. I am the person I hope my girls look up to. I am the person I wish my girls will one day become. Because there is nothing in this world that should ever make them feel anything less than they are: kind, caring, curious, smart and full of love. Thank you @fetteredmatriarch for the post and tag😙😙 Should anyone want to add their own 2 cents or would like to participate then feel free to tag me so I can read all your beautiful self love posts 💗💗💗💗 @woodiesreads . . . . . #books #bookblog #booktag #selflove #girls #mybaby #booksmell #weirdkid #bibliophile #bookworld #bookaddict #bookstagram #booknerd #paperback #germany #bookphotography #booksandkids #instabook #instaread #inspriation #lifegoals #bookworm #bookpic #blackandwhite

This pic has made my top 10 list of fav´s.

"Get busy living, or get busy dying". 🖤 One of my fav quotes by Stephen King. Those words were an eye opener 👀 during a time in my life where I felt the pressure of trying to be the perfect mother, perfect wife and perfect everything else. I've heard those words so often in my life but when I truly HEARD them I realized I didn't want to be perfect. I didn't need to be. I like to think that that was the moment I began to live.🖤 Do you have a quote that changed your life, opened your eyes or made any other impact on you? 🖤🖤 . . . . . #wordporn #quotes #words #meaning #lifechanging #openyoureyes #bookstagram #books #paperbacks #bookish #baskets #bookphotography #bookpic #lit #read #igreads #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #igbooks #bibliophile #instalike #instapic #stephenking #notsoperfect #bookrelated #ihavelivedathousandlives #bookworm #bookninja #bookishgirl #question

Don´t ask. I had a hard time getting those baskets into place. The rest is just exhausting but it was worth the effort.

⭐PARENT FAIL⭐BOOK AWESOMENESS⭐ 😂🙈My oldest daughter ( 10 yrs ) got caught reading her book during class today. I asked her why she wasn't paying attention in school (as she should have) and her answer was; "Mom, you told me you read so you can escape real life without having to go anywhere. That's what I told my teacher. I wanted to escape Math class without having to leave." 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈 These are the moments I don't know if I should give her a high five or not. #books #booksandchildren #bookishgirl #girl #imintrouble #lordhelpme #awesome #proudmommymoment #read #bookish #thethingskidssay #mommysfootsteps #instapic #bookstagram #parentfail #bookstagram #bookblog #bookblogger #bloggerlove #blog #smartass #truth #school #📚 #bookworm #book #instalike #instablogger #germany
