I am addicted to Instagram. Have you tried it? I love the immediacy of it. The snap a photo with few words aspect, its addictive. I know a lot of folks are unhappy about Facebook acquiring Instagram (even though apparently the company has never made any money and weren't ever quite sure how they would make money). I don't love the idea myself, but I've always had a suspicion that all of these companies make their money from the collection of data from their users (us) how we each use our account. Data equals money. And I'm talking about pinterest, facebook, and twitter. If they would like to market to me, fine, its the price I pay, and I don't have to look.
Anyway, back to Instagram. I find that I snap many pictures with my phone and post to instagram, many that I probably wouldn't take otherwise with my big black camera. My Iphone 4s takes amazing photos, I hardly need to these days, the phone photos just blow me away. Mainly I'm just happy that these moments get captured. Of course, they could get captured the same by snapping a picture and posting it onto facebook, but for whatever reason I prefer instagram (which, by the way, my instagram feed goes directly to the wise craft facebook page).
All of these pictures were taken by my phone and put up on instagram this week.

Its been two weeks of kids home from school for Spring Break (Emma's break was last week, Ian's was this week). Work and productivity always take a bit of a backseat when that happens. Even though we were bummed that the kids had different breaks this year (no big spring break trip to Florida like usual), I have to admit I've really enjoyed having some individual time with each of them. They each had a week with a little down time, and a little fun. That's good.
I am looking forward to next week. I am going to see the Gauguin & Polynesia exhibit at the SAM, I am going to browse secondhand shops without needing to make deals with my offspring involving rewards for letting me go there.
I know you hear me...
Oh! And I'm still posting over at habit through the month of April. Stop by!
Have a great weekend!
