Hi friends! We’re mixing it up a little this weekend and starting off the post with #ANOWeekend and a little name change – the #ANOWeekend Community Project. What I’ve realized over the past few weeks is that we’re building a fun COMMUNITY on Instagram. Now I love Instagram for just that – connecting with other people. And that is why I also love photo-a-day projects, to see what people’s lives and pictures look like across the world. But some folks have trouble keeping up with photo-a-day (trust me, I get it), so #ANOWeekend was designed to give one prompt, each weekend, to inspire photos to share. And it’s been SO FUN! I’ve loved each and every weekend. And it’s GROWING – into an amazing community. I want to thank each and every one of you who participate and share the prompt each week.
So now to the nitty gritty! This week the prompt for #ANOWeekend is “HANDMADE!” Show us your crafty side. Show us your inner chef or baker. Or show us what someone made you that is special to you. It’s up to YOUR interpretation! I can’t wait to see what you share!
How to play: download the picture you see below (right click to save to your computer, or save image or screenshot on your phone), post it on Instagram and let’s get to it! I’ll share a new prompt each Friday. Then when you post your picture, inspired by the prompt, simply tag it with #ANOWeekend so we all can see!
Now a quick shoutout to the folks who played along with our last installment of the #ANOWeekend Community Project! This past weekend’s prompt was BLACK & WHITE. We had the most people ever participate and it was so much fun watching the beautiful collection of photos grow over the weekend! If you missed them on Instagram, be sure you go take a look HERE! It’s getting harder and harder to pick from the great photos, so this week I did two different collections, one with some beautiful faces and one of beautiful places! Here are the features for this week…
And lastly, it’s been a fun and lively week on Instagram. Thanks to all who linked up at the Instagram Blog Hop this week! If you linked up early, make sure to swing back by to visit the late-comers!
