30 Day Snap #13 | Cardboard Creations

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Confused as to what The 30 Day Snap is? Read THIS to be in the loop and join in.

Fort Building with Toddlers

You'd be quite amazed how much fun you can have with a cardboard box and a bit of imagination. If Darcy will stay still for more than half a second I plan on taking some proper pictures of our creation with my big girl camera. 

For now though, here's a sneak peak.

Sidenote - How are you all enjoying this challenge so far? I'm feeling a bit worried. My life isn't all that thrilling and so I'm concerned you might be tiring of so many 'homey' shots. The 'big things' that I do are reserved for vlogs or lifestyle posts so I think the next 2 weeks might be more Mummy/Baby/Household glimpses. Is that alright? Reassure a wobbly blogger please haha! 



Toodlepip!

  14. I love these pictures Louise, nice to see normal everyday pictures of your life :) And you're right.. there is so much you can do with cardboard boxes when you're a child! I remember me and my brother using boxes as rockets and stands to put toys on for the 'shops' we used to create in our living room haha :)

    Would love if you could have a little look at my blog, http://laurenslittleblogs.blogspot.co.uk/

  18. Louise,
    I really like your "homey" shots. Please be reassured that they are not boring in the least. I actually enjoy seeing the normal, everyday stuff that is going on in your life.

    I have a "homey" snap for today too. I would love it if you checked it out. It is quite adorable :) http://sillyrabbit99.wordpress.com/2013/06/13/snap-13/

  21. Oh no Louise! I don't hate these posts, but however I do believe they are getting a bit "common" if you know what I mean. I don't want to be mean, because Darcy is your child but nearly every pic you have posted has been about her. xx :)

  22. I actually really enjoy these types of posts! I think they are the best kind, haha xx

  28. I love this project! I love taking part in it, trying to look at my day differently and see what I want to share with everyone.

    Don't worry about it not being exciting enough. I enjoy the 'homely' posts. Everyone is the same. Some days there is just more going on than others.

    The whole point is to show a snapshot of your day. It wouldn't be an accurate snapshot if you try to force exciting things to take pictures of.

    I love your blog so much Louise!

  33. NEVER CHANGE. Coming to look at your blog every day is like having a big cosy hug- yay for hugs! Is it sad that I genuinely look forward to seeing what you've been up to when I am on my way home from work? This reassurance thing works both ways!

    Muchos love,

  35. I'm enjoying this challenge very much. It's a massive challenge for me too because I don't have a very exciting life myself! Although I do have a few things coming up this month that may be worth snapping! Yours are always lovely to look at/read :)

  43. I've been really enjoying the 30 day snap. I've only just started my blog so it's been a great way for me to make sure I post daily and to get into the blogging mindset. I also love reading your homey posts. Darcey is a wonderful little girl and it's a lot of fun to see her antics. Please don't feel wobbly we love you :D.

  46. Keep going Louise, I have really enjoyed seeing your posts and what you and Darcy have been up to :)

    I've had feelings like that with the challenge where I've not really had anything photo-worthy that day or I've forgotten until the evening but I've been pleased with what I've posted and hope others are enjoying.

  48. I just love your challenge! It gives me so much joy to take all these pictures and sit down to write a blogpost about them every evening as well as catching up on everyone who participates.
    I really understand your concerns, I felt the same thing because all I'm taking pictures of are the weather and food (at least this is what I feel like). But I mean, we're supposed to document our day and if this is special topic what we choose to tell people about, it's perfectly fine. At least that's what I think, haha.

  49. I love all the photos Louise, they're so sweet, Darcy is adorable and you should be so proud to have such an amazing baby :) I feel kind of the same, because my life isn't very interesting either, and when it is, I don't have enough time to blog about it!! I'm taking part on my blog if you wanna check out the pictures!

  50. Hi Louise!

    I love this challenge! I am hoping to maybe do it another time as I have just started my blog a few days ago!

    Cardboard boxes were always so much more fun than shop bought toys. Shop bought toys barely use your imagination! I remember as a kid always finding the bubble wrap or the washing baskets or cardboard boxes or even just getting inside the duvet cover so much more thrilling than playing with the latest polly pocket!

    I love your blog and always look forward to new posts!

  51. I love your homey posts, Louise! Your family is so adorable and I love getting little sneak peaks into your home life!

    I remember when I was a lot younger my parents had just bought a new refrigerator and they gave the GIGANTIC box it came in to me and my sisters to play with! We got my father to cut out windows and we drew all over it with sidewalk chalk and made it our own little clubhouse!

    Looking forward to your next post,

  52. Aw Louise, you don't need to be worried! After all, YOU were the one that created this :) And just for the record, I LOVE your homey/darcy/family little snaps. And I'm not the only one ♥ I'm doing this too and so glad I decided to take part! xo

  53. Hey Lousise! Don't worry your "homey" posts are fabulous and allows us viewers in on your realness and dedication as a mother. Under all the glitz and glamor of 'Sprinkle of Glitter' it is refreshing to know you are one of us. I love how you display beauty in the simplest things- really helps me to open my eyes and take note of all the small achievements and beauty surrounding me.

    Proud of you!

    Sprinklerino, Michelle

    I guess photos doesn't always have to be "extraordinary" in order to be interesting,
    it can be the most mundane things that provoke the bond between people :)

  69. I like how your blog is personal, we all get to know who you are from your photos that are shot from your home, and in a way I prefer that. I like how we can all compare ourselves to you. At times I think my photos are boring but I'm showing everyone what my life consists of during a daily basis, and I'm pretty happy with it.

    Keep doing what your doing Louise, I mean you have these followers for a reason :) We love your work :D xxx

  76. I actually hate these posts! I know Darcy is precious to you, but EVERYTHING on your blog is about her. I am sick of it and I am sure many other people are too they are just not saying it because they don't want to write mean stuff because at the same time they are advertising/promoting their blog by adding the link at the end. So if they write horrid comments, the other readers wont click on their link! Idiot, Louise and that pesty child Darcy. Ew.
