Instagram Great-Gram Day & Celebrate Family

Instagram Great Gram Day

Although I've been crafting and blogging more frequently around here, I'm still too busy (sadly) to take on some of my favorite things...such as Celebrate Family...the annual celebration of The Family: A Proclamation to the World ,which I have participated in for the last three years.

What?!  Yes, crazy to think that I won't be co-hosting this fun two-week event this year, but even I have my limits!!  And we've got to tend to what is best for each one of us, right?  Right.

BUT that shouldn't stop YOU from joining in the fun over at Montserrat's blog Chocolate on My Cranium!  And who knows...I still might be able to pull a Family Proclamation rabbit out of my hat at some point over the next two stay tuned! :)

ALSO OF TOTALLY AWESOME NOTE:  THIS SUNDAY IS INSTAGRAM GREAT-GRAM DAY!  What is that, you may ask?  Well, it's a chance for you to do some really easy--family history work online.

All you have to do is post an old photo of someone from your family history on facebook, twitter, or instagram.   (See these two lovebirds?  That's my grandma and grandpa!)

Here's the deets:

In your status, caption, or tweet, include with the picture:

- The person's name

- How you're related

- A brief blurb on their life if you know it

- This link:

- And a fun little hash tag like #IGGday, #grateful or #Ancestor

Got it?  Got it.

I would have followed the format, but I've gotta pick up a little girl from school.

  1. Love the picture of your grandparents! Thanks for sharing this - we're excited!

  2. I haven't heard about this. How awesome! I wish I heard about it before since I don't have time to go get some photos from my parents. I don't have a single old photo of my own.
