Mug – Handle = Vase

Mug – Handle = Vase

Please Note: I failed to take before photos, so you’ll need to imagine those. Yes, this post is the first of my Home Time blog, and I’m aware that this was for my office. That’s okay – this idea works well at home, too. One day, while rearranging my desk, I realized that the mugs I use…

Storytimepalooza!

Storytimepalooza!

While going through thousands of files in my quest to rebuild my blog, I came across one of the very first images that I created when I began overseeing our Children’s Library in 2013. This was either one of my earliest Photoshopped images, or it was built with either Word or Publisher. Yes, you can…

Where Is HAFUBOTI?!

Where Is HAFUBOTI?!

Due to a series of very unfortunate events, I’m needing to recreate Hafuboti from the ground up. Currently the only thing available on this site is the #LAFE Library. Until things settle back down, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or requests: rebecca@hafuboti.com I truly appreciate your patience with this…

THE FOOL

THE FOOL

Back in 2014 I had a moment in my life where I could almost literally feel the change in my life’s path. I was sitting in a Rheumatologist’s exam room, and he had informed me that I was the poster child for Fibromyalgia. He gave me some reading material and said he’d give me and…

Even More Signs

Even More Signs

Okay, so it turned out that my three part new sign series has a fourth part. What can I say? I rebel against…uh, numbers? Along with our directional and informational signs from 2015, I realized that our “rules” signs also needed a refresh. BEFORE: AFTER: In the After picture, the library images behind the children…

Cat Fans

Cat Fans

Before last year’s Kitty Café I had an idea. You see, it tends to get pretty hot in our small meeting room during this event, even if we pump up the A/C beforehand. So it’d be nice to have fans to give to people. And, in the way my mind works, I came up with…

A Great Update

A Great Update

Besides recently giving our library’s community space a much needed update, I’ve also been trying to make our office a bit nicer. I share this office with Jennifer, our Children’s Librarian, and it’s pretty much the hub for the rest of our team. The doorway leading out to the circulation desk has had its share…

2018 CHILDREN’S LIBRARY THEMES

2018 CHILDREN’S LIBRARY THEMES

This post is meant to be an overview, and not a blow-by-blow breakdown of how we did it. If you have any questions whatsoever about anything you see here, there, or anywhere on my blog, then don’t hesitate to ask me! Either on social media, or at hafuboti@gmail.com. I must give credit to my right-hand assistant and…

Book End Cozy Redux

Book End Cozy Redux

This is the third, and final, sign revamp post. Here is part one and part two in case you missed them. As I went to look for my post on what I call “book end cozies,” I realized that my first post about them was buried in a holiday post. Oops. And at the beginning…
