Love Pictures and A Challenge? Join Us for the 12x12x12

By  |  11 Comments

my husband has less of a photo addiction than i do and he looooves ‘challenges’ so because i’m such a sexy supportive wife, i’m jumping on board with his 12x12x12 photo challenge! so if you love pictures and a challenge, consider joining us!

it’s going live tomorrow since it’s 12/12 so that’s the most fun day to join along. the hardest part will be selecting the 12 photos that are your favorites from this past year. it’s okay if you started to get a little panicky that christmas and hanukkah  wouldn’t be included (because i certainly did) so let’s all acknowledge that some super solid ones will occur then too.

this could live on your blog, you could share it on facebook in an album or even on instagram with one of those photo collage things.

some resources for putting collages together are (my personal favorite) and both are free to use, which makes it even better.

here’s what else he says:

Here is text for the album or blog description:
Several of us are getting together to go through all of our photos this year and selecting twelve photos that highlight the best, worst, happiest, saddest, coolest, adventurous, or most terrifying moments of our year!

Here is the hashtag for the album and photos:
When sharing your photos or article on social media use: #121212 so we can all follow each other and see what others post. Tell us about your year’s greatest lessons, stories, insights, sorrows, and triumphs! Let’s see how we can portray our year using twelve photos from the past twelve months! source
(haha just kidding. i’m sitting across from him).

if you’re wondering where i’ll be for the next day…it’s searching through literally thousands of photos from our insane (and not yet over) 2014. i mean, i’ve taken 12 photos in the last hour. i’ve had to start transferring my photos to a hard-drive because my poor computer is like OMG enough with the food photos and selfies with your husband! 

hope you join us tomorrow for the #12x12x12 and if not, hope you’ll be back to hear how i agonized over which photos made the cut and which ones sadly still sit in a folder.

**i will be setting up a blog link-up (thanks faith!) for you to come back to this if you already have plans and can’t post on 12x12x12 but want to participate before the year is over! check it out HERE!

1) how do you organize your own photos and where do you store them? i need suggestions!
2) do you like taking photos?
3) what’s the last idea your partner had that you jumped on board with?

    I organize my photos by day: 14-12-12, 14-12-13, etc.

    It took me about eightsixs to get organized.

    I save them to multiple external HD and to a Pro Flicker feed ($25 annually for unlimited space). I have 112,000+ photos so it is important to organize and tag.
