With the blessing of my gorgeous, talented and super-lovely friend Chantelle of Fat Mum Slim, who’s #fmsphotoaday challenge inspired this idea, I’m running a month-long Instagram #photoaday challenge in August!

This challenge is for makers, artists, and creatives of all stripes.

I know how much I love seeing behind the scenes of other creatives’ lives and work, and I know I’m not alone in that bit of loving voyeurism, am I right?

So, I created an opportunity for you to share all sorts of behind-the-scenes snapshots of your work life with us.

I want to see a month-in-the-life of your work. I want to see your space, your materials, your life, your passion. I want to see what motivates you, what your materials look like, what you DO every day!

Who wants to play?


Join us for #CTMonthInTheLife!


Below is your handy-dandy reference image that lists the challenges for each day. Please feel free to take and share this image on your own IG, blogs, and any other social media.

I’ll be posting each day’s prompt on the Create & Thrive IG account throughout August with a little blurb that explains a little bit about what it is. Most of them are pretty self-explanatory though!

We’ll kick off on August 1st, and play through till the 31st.

Please be aware that I’m running on Australian Eastern Standard Time – so for those of you on the other side of the world, we’ll be a little ahead of you time-wise – but just play when each day rolls around in your timezone!

If you have an iPhone, I recommend you give Chantelle’s app – Little Moments – a go for this challenge.

I also wrote a post outlining all my personal favourite Android Instagram apps (including a few photo creation and prettifying apps) here.

Make sure you’re following us on the @CreateAndThrive IG account.

I’ll be doing a round-up of my faves each day for the previous day’s prompt, so make sure to tag your post #CTMonthInTheLife AND @CreateandThrive so I see it!

I can’t wait to peek inside your creative lives… will you be joining us?
