*trows mobile phone away and grabs the photo camera* I have tried over 10 times to film a decent, well English spoken (it is not my native language) not to shaken film for this blog. To show you all my new Hobbyroom. But my mobile phone and some uploading sites (including this blogs uploading capacity) prevents me to even upload a decent film... So, instead of me talking and moving and showing the room in upper detail, I have taken some photos to show you this room. I really hope the photos can translate the model animals and the atmosphere that is in here. I shall try to describe every photo with as much info, as I can possibly add to it without being it too long and boring to read. So lets begin!
The first things you will see when you enter my room and you turn to the left, are two white Lidl cabinets and two shelves on the wall. In the first Lidl cabinet you can see my predators (Not all of them, as my bears, small predators like otters and weasels, and my dolphins and whales are in the big white cabinet I will show you later.) The second Lidl cabinet is filled with birds, reptiles, amphibians, spiders and fishes. On top of the Lidle cabinets are my Dinosaurs and my bigger animals like the Safari LTD Vanishing Wild animals and Wildlife Wonders coyote, Papo big wolf and the Invicta blue whale. The first shelf on the wall contains my Border Collie collection and the second, most upper shelf, contains my bigger animals like AAA and ELC. I did not collect the AAA and ELC animals as much in the past as I do now. All because of me lacking the space to display them in a proper manor.
This is the part in de middle of the room. Looks a bit messy, I know. The room is almost finished, but I still have to find some places to store and to display things. But after this was taken, I already cleaned up the chair and the books on the ground XD (Chii, our female cat, is lying on the chair the moment I type this <3) LOVE my feather curtains <3 It gives the room a certain light but natural feel to it. Behind the chair, is my book corner. I will share this when it is completely finished.
This is the other side of the room. My desk with my computer and some other things. It is also my place when I work on crafty things. Above my desk you can see my main white cabinet. Handmade by Tijn and me. It displays all my other animals that I own. Every section has his won habitat/theme.
And this is the other half of my desk and my white cabinet. In the corner you can see a cabinet filled with plush animals. Hanging on the wall there is a deer plate. And on the ground you can see a little plush kitty.
This was a overall view of my Hobbyroom. Lets continue with some close up photos of the cabinets and shelves and all the animal in/on them <3 I try to give a short description with every photo.

Some closeup photos of the shelves:
Above the two Lidl cabinets are my Border Collie collection and on an other shelf above them are my AAA and ELC animals. I only got some close ups of my Border Collie collection, as I am not content with the arrangement of the AAA/ELC animals. Have to rearrange them in order to make some good photos.
Next is my big white main cabinet. I let the first photos do the talking, they are a broader view of the whole cabinet. After those there will be some close ups of al the different sections with their animals in it. I will give a short description of the theme and animals in each section.
Deer, bears, bats, wolverines, hares and rabbits, badgers, weasels, otters, skunks, raccoons, mice, marmots, boars, ibexes, mouflons etc.
Smaller whales and dolphins
(My bigger whales and dolphins are on top on the length of the cabinet.)
Orcas, humpback whales, white sided dolphins, belugas, bottlenose dolphins, blue whales, sperm whales, commerson's dolphins, porpoises, etc.
Elephants, zebras, rhinos, hippos, buffalo, giraffes, oryxes, gazelles, meerkats, anteaters etc.
Farm Animals and some Fantasy
Cows, sheep, goats, rabbits, people, pigs, llamas, etc.
Made by Horse and Bird and Noémi D. Soós Creations.
Rain forest Animals
Okapis, elephants, tapirs, gorillas, orangutans, bats, tamanduas, etc.
Arctic and Desert Animals
Kangaroos, platypuses, polar bears, gerbils, dromedary, etc.
And these are all my stuffed animals. This cabinet, also handmade, originally was my bookcase. But now my books have and other place to stand, so I though this would be a good cabinet for all my beloved stuffed animals who have been stored in a box for so long. Many of them I already had when I was a child, so they are precious to me <3
So this is it! I really hope you enjoyed watching all the photos, instead of a video.
Welcome to my blog! Look around and be amazed by the world of animal collections.
