One of my favorite pieces in our home is my grandpa’s camera. It actually took images to be seen with a View-Master. My grandpa had books of View-Master reels from family vacations that were always really fun to look at.
All that to say… I love photos! When I was a kid I loved taking photos and organizing them into those sticky albums for my mom. When I grew-up and started a family, I started scrapbooking and continue to do so. And now with social media, I love taking photos and sharing them with friends on-line. My hands down favorite app is Instagram! Snap, add filters, write a caption, share… what’s not to love?!
When 2012 rolled around, a friend told me that she would be doing a photo-a-day challenge thru Instagram. The challenge is created by Chantelle of FatMumSlim. Was I in? Heck yeah!
During January, I discovered the very fun blog The House of Smiths. Shelley was also participating in the first month’s challenge and announced that she would be holding a link party for everyone to share their photos and blog link. I so badly wanted to play along and so my goal was to be ready for February. Without further ado:
My February Photo-a-Day Challenge 2012
I didn’t complete every challenge on the list, but I had plenty of other fun photos to fill in the gaps.
I think my favorite part of these challenges is taking time to capture a moment in life, in a creative way. For instance, in January, one of the daily challenges was to take a photo of the inside of your refrigerator… no thanks! So Barbie let me use hers.
Tess and I had the most fun trying to line up the eggs and watermelon. A silly mother/daughter moment during a very busy week.
I’m already into the March Photo-a-Day Challenge and I can’t wait to share it here with you. If you play along, let me know… that’s half the fun!
