There are lots of things to love about Instagram. There are lots of things not to love too. BUT! One thing I love is how quickly I can share projects I’m working on. Especially crafts! Yes, I have my blog to share. But there are so many random little projects here are there, and it takes quite a bit of time to share things on the blog. But not on the gram!
Lately I’ve been noticing that people appreciate my enthusiasm for their craft-bragging, and so they tag me to look at their crafts. I LOVE when people want to brag about crafts that I come to mind! Because really, I’ve never had all that much to brag about. In high school and college I wasn’t a star athlete or musician. I’ve always been a decent writer, but I’m not the scholarly type that gets published in journals-I’m too conversational. I’m not a stellar classical artists or photographer.
BUT I am one hell of a crafter. Always have been. And now that it’s finally cool to be good at crafting, I’m going to ride this wave until it crashes and I’m a washed-up old glitter-crusted lady.
That’s why, for the month of December I’m hosting a #caughtbeingcrafty brag-a-thon and contest on Instagram. I want you to tag all your December pictures of your crafts–finished, mid-project, the mess after–so I can see them and we can all cheer each other on. I want you to BRAG about being crafty! I’m going to give away a $300 gift card to one person at the end of the month! I will choose them randomly. But the more pictures you tag the more chances you’ll be chosen randomly.
I started this morning and I’m already GIDDY about the pictures being tagged. There are so many amazing craft projects happening. I will also be sharing my favorites on my Instagram feed and maybe my blog too!
Let me know if you have any questions!
