The Trap of Instagram

Do you find yourself posting to Instagram more often than your blog?

I remember when I first created my Instagram a couple years ago (I think my first picture was an early love, the Oreo McFlurry) and my original intention was for it to remain at private settings and to catalog my daily mundane activities for memory purposes.

And then I fell to peer pressure as my friends wanted to follow those mundane activities. I'm still not entirely sure why. I got cats, and they are too cute all the time to not take pictures. I love brunch, and I take pictures of that.

It's just SO easy to fit this bite-size posting into my day when I only have bite-size free time.

However, I like blogging! I like writing my thoughts and interacting with people through blogging. Heavens knows I have enough back-logged projects to share that I'm not lacking for content.

All this to say, I am not abandoning this space. I just have to be prepared to blog with intention, and it might require actually scheduling it! And this is also an invitation that if you want to know what I'm sewing on a more regular basis, come join me on Instagram - I'm @sewfestive and would love to have you.

Some things I plan to keep mainly to IG...

I, Rebecca of Sew Festive Handmade, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I will try to wear at least 5 me-made items per week for the duration of May. I will document my outfits on Instagram and will do a round-up on the blog at the end of the month. I hope to pinpoint how my me-made garments make me feel when I wear them in order to become a better sewist.

The above dress is a Darling Ranges by Megan Nielsen, made for Easter this year in an April Rhodes Arizona voile. It's the latest of those unblogged projects!

Are you or would you ever participate in Me-Made-May?


  1. I miss your blogging but I totally get it! I want to do Me Made May - maybe next year (I only have 4 outfits total ATM!). Can't wait to see you projects (and that dress is perfection!).

  2. Hi! I have just found your website 'cause I was trying to find someone who did Washi dress with zipper and then I saw your About me with the kind of humour which like. I would like to follow you on Instagram if you don't mind because I find your tips and tricks vrry useful. Veronika
