#Craftyblisschallenge and Instagram thoughts

You can find me on Instagram right here

Two of my favourite knit bloggers have teamed up twice now to host my favourite Instagram challenge, the #craftyblisschallenge. I participated in their last one in the fall (I think it was the fall...) and was pumped when they announced the spring instalment. It's a 10 day challenge, which is the perfect length, and the prompts are fairly open ended so though you could certainly interpret each of them as knitting specific if you wanted to, you don't have to be a knitter, or post a single shot of knitting, to participate. Obviously I'm not looking for ways to limit the knitting content in my Instagram feed, I'm just sayin', I like the prompts! 

I've gone on before about how much I love Instagram and though there are definitely draw backs to being overly connected or so distracted by social media that you forget about living your real life, I think that if you strike the right balance, Instagram can be a ton of fun. I love sharing glimpses into my life, behind the scenes shots of the TFA office or a colour combination I'm particularly smitten with at the moment. It makes me feel extra connected to my crafting community, and as someone who works all alone most days (well, all alone but with lots of helps from my almost-1-year-old who is never far away) I really appreciate the interaction I get to have with my (adult) Instagram friends.
