With 19 days until Christmas day there are lots of advent calendars, prompt challenges and vlogs in my social media feeds.
I started posting about #MeetTheMakerWeek by Joanne Hawker and then got busy so didn’t finish all of the prompts. This challenge was a short one of six day. Taking part in this challenge gave me the chance to check out the feeds on Instagram of other makers.
I joined a group on Facebook called Brum Bloggers and they are running #brumblogmas. I got apprehensive about finding the time to produce content for 24 days in a row. Then I re-read the post and it said you could dip in and mix up the order of the prompts. I have signed up and will post some content based on the prompts.
Finally, an Instagram challenge from the Blurt Foundation called #blurtmerrycalmness. Again I will dip in and out of this challenge. I the Blurt Foundation has some interesting and inspiring articles and merchandise relating to mental health.
With that in mind I have decided not to put my big tree up this year and I will leave you with a shot from last year. I want the festive season to be a time of reflection, rest and gratitude.
