For the past few months I have been a little obsessed with instagram. I drive my kids crazy making them stop so I can take a picture! I feel like it helps me appreciate the simple joys and beauty in everyday life. The other thing I love about instagram is that you can see what other people from all over the world are sharing. I follow people from all over America, Denmark, Japan and the Middle East! Amazing!

Maggie and I want to invite you all to follow us on instagram. We thought it would be a fun way for you to get to know us better and for us to get to know you too. It would also be a great way for you to share your homemade projects with fellow readers by adding #homemademamas to projects you have made.

We also thought it might be fun to create our own February photo challenge! So many of the photo challenges that we have seen seem to be geared for teenagers. We tried to make one that we hope will appeal to a more general audience. With Valentine's day coming up, we gave the challenge a "love" theme. If you would like to join us, add the hashtag #hmmphotoaday to your photos.

Can't wait to see you all on instagram! Let us know if you would like us to follow you back!

Pin It!


  1. I recently got back into Instagram after a hiatus!! Can't wait for the challenge in February! Sounds like fun! Feel free to follow back @emmalibs

  2. I have been seeing a lot about Instagram lately, but no one seems to be able to explain exactly what it is... something to do with pictures obviously, but other than that... what is it???

    1. Instagram is a photo sharing site. You share photos useing iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or android phones. You can see what people are sharing all over the world. You can make your pictures public or private. You sort your pictures using hashtags. You can edit your pictures and add filters. You can also share your pics on Facebook or twitter. Lots of fun!
