I’ve managed to complete my second month of daily photo challenges. (You can see a summary of October here.) I never thought I’d make it this far, let alone want to keep going. I’ve become a bit addicted.
While I have not seen any official planner daily photo challenges posted anywhere, I have found two, thanks to some recommendations on Facebook. First, there’s a Christmas photo challenge from White Peach Blog. Then there’s the December photo challenge from Fatmumslim. Both sound great, I have to say. But I wonder how much of these I can do since (from what I can tell) they aren’t geared specifically towards planners.
But why can’t I make them specifically for planners? There’s no rule (as far as I know) as to how you complete your photo challenges. I have to say that White Peach’s Christmas challenge is just that—a challenge. I’m not sure how many of these I can complete where my planner is concerned. But I wouldn’t let that stop me.
What might stop me is the fact that both of these challenges aren’t for planners specifically. That’s okay, but I feel that I have to credit to the creators of each challenge, which means adding hastags to my photos. They will be searchable within those hastags, and while I don’t care what others think of my planner addiction, it’s not as fun when my photos aren’t seen by other planner aficionados.
So… this might be a good opportunity for me to create my own. Rather than wrack my brain to come up with 31 topics all at once, I might make them up as I go. That would be more of a challenge. Hopefully a planner-specific challenge list will appear soon. In the meantime, I’ll try to snap photos as I see fit based on the day. We’ll see how that goes.
In any event, here are my favorites from November:
|Day 1: Brown|
|Day 4: planners galore|
|Day 9: apples|
|Day 15: at the table|
|Day 25: cozy|
|Day 27: gobble, gobble - I gobble up eggnog, a favorite|
|Day 28: thankful - I am thankful for everyone in my life, but especially for |
my husband who chooses to stay with me every day
*UPDATE: The Gillio Facebook group has created their own version of a December photo challenge based on the Fatmumslim list above. I will be following that list. I do not own a Gillio (yet) so I will use the hashtag #FiloInDecember.
