photo a day challenge

I have seen all these fun instagram photos from my friends all over the internet lately and was feeling a bit of iphone envy. But I recently found out that instagram now has an android phone app.  So I signed up and decided to jump on the instagram band wagon.  The main reason I decided to do this is because even though I take a LOT of pictures weekly, they are usually of stuff I have made but not my family.  Ummm….hello!  Something seems really backwards about that.


So I am hoping that this will be a way to help encourage me to record my daily FAMILY life and help me to document the everyday moments.  There are a few different “Photo a Day” sites around but I decided to follow FatMumSlim’s Photo a Day series.

You simply take a photo each day of the item listed and share it on instagram.  This has been such a fun way for me to get to know others a bit more and get a peek into their daily life.  If you would like to follow along my instagram name is theidearoom.

I also share a lot of other random photos here that are not part of this #PhotoADay challenge.  I also found a great way to view your instagram pictures and the pictures of the people you follow called Pinstagram.

I have not the been the best at making sure I post them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY…but I am getting better and having a lot of fun with it.

I would love to share at the end of the month all the photos and then have you link up your photos if you want to play along with me.  What do you think?

Since it is not the end of the month quite yet, I thought I would post this to give you some time to decide whether you would like to follow along and/or join in the fun!  I will update the pictures for the rest of the month when I have them.

Then I will also share the June Photo-A-Day topics.  Sound fun?  I hope you will join us!  Also…if you join us I would love to follow YOU! Leave your instagram name in a comment so I can follow you.

    I have been wanting to do this and you have inspired me to start it up in June. Looks like FUN! BTW, how did you compile your photos in a collage/calendar? I would like to do a layout like that for my son and I to document our summer. Thanks and LOVE your creative mind!!
