Okay, it gives you other ideas, too… but the other day I was feeling a little sassy in my new J.Jill denim shirt dress (yes, I did just type that proudly) and I had an idea.
The idea? 50 selfies at 50.
It’s probably not the most original idea, but I’m going ahead with it. I set an alarm every Monday that says, “Take a selfie today” and so that is what I plan to do. At the end of the year? I’ll have 50 selfies to do something with. God only knows what that will be, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
The only rule? I have to take the photo myself. For this one, I set my phone on the ground and used the Key Cam app. It lets you clap to trigger the shot. How cool is that?
You can follow along on my Instagram feed, and look for this hashtag: #cz50selfiesat50.
And then I had another idea. (I know, two in one day is a little out of control.)
I am in love with my Letterfolk Letterboard and I don’t care who knows it.
Since acquiring this a few weeks back, roughly 5 different quotes or phrases have graced the board and it got me thinking: this would be another fun Instagram project.
It started when Dan and I were talking about his stress levels as a student teacher and grad student, and he says, “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice,” quoting lyrics from the great Neil Peart of Rush from the song Freewill.
We both looked at each other and we knew: that’s gotta go on the board.
And so kicks off the other project: #czletterboardweekly2016. I’m going to try and add a new quote, phrase or some other word combo every week for the remainder of the year, and then take a photo to share on Instagram.
Again, at the end of the year, I’ll have a bunch of photos to do something fun with. I’m thinking a mini book from Artifact Uprising more than likely.
Here’s to curating your social media projects with personal hashtags.

Speaking of Instagram… if you want to see what I’m up to with scrapbooking, design, products, stamps, classes and all things related to my small but mighty CZ Design empire, follow me on my czdesign account. Here’s where I get my scrapbooking freak on. Aw yeah. No fancy hashtags here. Just good old fashioned crafty stuff. Or at least as crafty as I get.
