Instagram Photo Challenge...

Lately I've been given a few Instagram photo challenges or tagged in, like the #blackandwhitechallenge. This was a five day challenge to take a photo each day but it had to be in B&W. Another is #widn (what I'm doing now?), don't think I need to explain that one. 

Anyway when I started my blog and started up an Instagram account I posted a photo with the heading 'Moments Through Their Eyes'. A little challenge I thought I would put out there, mainly for myself. It was with the idea of starting  to take more photos from my kids' perspective rather than from mine all the time. I try and capture little moments, through their eyes, mostly because I'm so curious as to how their little minds work, how they see and interpret the world. It's actually harder than you think, to get a great photo, at the right moment, and not just photograph the back of their head....haha! 

So, I put the challenge to you. Give it a go! Tag me so I can see, use the hashtag #momentthroughtheireyes and why not tag two or three of your friends and see how they go. If you're not on Instagram you can tag me on Facebook too. It's a bit of fun and it makes you get down on your kids level.

  2. What a gorgeous idea! I'm so bad at sticking to instagram challenges but this is one I think I could do!!

  3. My kids are all grown so I can't play but what a lovely idea! I was tagged recently - twice! - on Instagram to #lookleftrightnow where I had to post a photo of what was to my left. That was a new one to me! :-)

    1. Thanks. I have seen that one going around too. Haven't been tagged yet.

  4. This is a wonderful idea. I'd have to be quick though, those moments are so fleeting sometimes I wish it would last forever, or long enough to take a photo x Will join in when I have to chance :)

  5. That's a wonderful idea. I'll have to remember it. Thanks.

  6. Thanks for tagging me this week - I am excited to give this a go over the next couple of days!

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
