March Instagram

Posted on

AHHHH!  How is it already April 8th! I can’t believe how fast time is moving and that in a short amount of time we will be in New York.  It seemed like that trip was so far away and now it is getting close enough to start packing.  All I know is this poor little blog is going to suffer with all our plans and the long work days in April.  So, the little I can do is share my Instagram from March round-up .

Testing out the waterlogue app to get ready for Pretty Waterlogue April photo a day challenge on Instagram.

Cheers to another great month and fun times ahead.  Check out my instagram account to see my daily watercolors and my travels in New York before they hit the blog!


Pretty Waterlogue April Challenge

Posted on

Who wants an opportunity to try out another great photo app and have some fun on Instagram?!? Brittany of Pretty Handy Girl threw down the Pretty Waterlogue Challenge on her blog yesterday and I have decided to pick up the torch and give it a go.  I mean who doesn’t love a good photo challenge and getting to use a fun photo app like Waterlogue?  Just look at how the pictures turn out:

Waterlogue Sample

This challenge is to take a new picture or use an already loved picture each day during April and convert it into a watercolor image using the the Waterlogue app (it costs $2.99 on the iphone).  We are then to share the picture each day on Instagram with the tags @prettyhandygirl and #prettywaterlogueapril.

I am so excited and hopeful that this will help me to come up with some great new art to use in our home and meet a few new people on Instagram.  And this challenge could not come at a better time either.  We are heading out to New York for a few days later in the month, so I will have ample pictures to use and share.  YAY!

Join in the fun with us.  Follow me on Instagram @justtwocraftysisters and Brittany @prettyhandygirl and share your beautiful art too!  Thanks for the challenge!


February Instagram Style

Posted on

Another month has come and gone.  February was a busy one, but not all that much to show on Instagram.  My phone keeps alerting me that it is full, so I need to go through and take a few things off to make more space for pictures.  Anyways, here we go with February Instagram style.

February Instagram

Enjoying the Big Game with some amazing appetizers!

King’s game vs Warriors. Unfortunately I was fighting a cold so we did not make it through the whole game, but still a good time.

Should be another busy month in March, looking forward to settling in to my new office, going on a wine tasting weekend, birthdays and more.


January Instagram Style

Did it seem like January went by crazy fast for anyone else?!?  I can’t believe we are already in February and with every weekend booked up, I know it is going to be a blur too.  So, here is a quick glance back on January through Instagram (I’m trying out a new format this month too, let me know what you like more).
