Friday (Insta)Favorites

Something simple that I’m enjoying this holiday season is capturing little holiday details, sharing them on Instagram and seeing others do the same. I’ve also been participating in a couple of series lately. The #happyholigram tag is one of my favorites. Are you on Instagram? Share your name so I can follow along with your festivities this holiday season.

Instatime: A DIY Instagram Clock

Jason is starting kindergarten this year, and I’ve recently started talking to him about what to expect at school – the activities he’ll be doing, how he’ll get there, when he’ll come home, etc. And since I’m pretty obsessed with Instagram, I decided to make a clock using pictures I’ve taken of his daily activities. This way, he’ll have a visual depiction of his day. Now maybe he’ll learn what to expect when school starts and - even better – learn how to tell time. I think it might be catching on. When I first gave him the clock yesterday afternoon, he immediately told his sister it was time for playdough. Lesson learned.

I’m working on a step-by-step tutorial, but here’s a sneak peek:
