The One with 3 Years on Instagram

Saturday, April 4, 2015

I love instagram! I love it I love it I love it. Such a fun and easy way to see what my friends, family, co-workers, and even people I don't know, are up to. I have to restrain myself from overgramming every day! 
Today is my 3 year "instaversary"! Gotta love that first pic of the dog of all things haha.
In three years I have grammed 1214 pictures. I started out mostly sharing everyday moments and things we were up to - now it's almost exclusively things I've made and places we've traveled to.
Here are my top "liked" pics according to iconosquare (it's a website where you can see all kinds of statistics about your instagram!). Coincidentally, my most liked photo was taken yesterday - a tree with 10,000 eggs on it! I'm blogging about it tomorrow - trust me, you'll want to see the pics of this phenomenon :)
I also reached a really awesome goal on Thursday - 10,000 followers! CRAZY!!! Humbling. I can't believe it. 
To celebrate these achievements (3 years/10k) I'm hosting a giveaway over on my instagram account: @paigetaylorevans
I asked people if they'd rather have a giveaway with scrapbooking supplies or a paigebook. I think a paigebook won by a landslide - your wish is my command :)
So this is a 4x6" coptic style book.
I painted the wood covers mint green.
The papers are from every single one of Maggie Holmes' collections with Crate Paper. Yes, I've been hoarding them. I still have lots left.
I turned the embellishments into charms and sewed them into the binding.
I used light pink thread to sew the book together - definitely has a "spring" vibe to it - perfect for Easter tomorrow!
This might be my favorite book I've ever made. Dunno if I can part with it :)
Thanks for letting me celebrate this little slice of my life!
