Here we go, taking over the internet one self-portrait at a time. We’re so excited you stopped by! And thanks to The Letter 4 and It’s Overflowing for co-hosting this with me! We hope you have fun!
Jamie designed this button. Isn’t it awesome?
Bloggers, make sure you add it to your sidebar or post!
What do you spend your days doing?
What do you look like in your home
element? We all spend different amounts of time at home, but at some
point in the day, we are home. The point of this contest is to challenge
yourself to take some fun/creative/interesting pictures of yourself
doing what you do best. Or most. Or worst. LOL. We just really want to
see you having fun, while attending to your life and daily tasks. So
again, your challenge is:

take a self portrait somewhere at home. 
 We want to “picture you domestic!”


You can’t take yourself too seriously. What you are doing is totally ridiculous and you know it! This is
just an opportunity to add a little creativity and excitement to your day.
2. Capture yourself somewhere in your home(inside or outside).
Be creative. Use as many different angles, reflections, scenarios as
you can. Hopefully your camera has a self timer because they have to be
taken by you, starring you.
You are not being judged on the quality of your pictures. They aren’t
required to be technically sound and perfectly edited, although that
cannot hurt! We really want to see your creativity.
Absolutely NO graphic or inappropriate pictures. Do NOT enter a picture
of you in your undies, or doing something
questionable, scary, or frightfully weird! Anything that is not family-friendly (something
appropriate for children to see), will be removed! The definition of
“inappropriate” is up the the hosts of this contest.
6. You can enter by linking up at the party
via your blog, facebook, google+, flickr, and INSTAGRAM!!!
use hashtag #picturemedomestic
7. If you have a blog, please include our cute “Picture Me Domestic” button on your post or sidebar!

Next Wednesday we will post our self portraits, and include the link
party again. It’s open for 2 weeks! The winners will be announced on May
30. But keep in mind, this contest is not about winning. It’s about

Once upon a time…

I started a blog. This is a tale of my projects, goals, and dreams. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by. I hope you have a beautiful day.
