The newest craze

I'm not one for following the crowd...or buying into the latest fad...but I have to admit that when I read about this newest craze over the weekend, it was just up my alley...

Introducing the "shelfie"!

As explained in the WSJ Weekend article, this photo sharing phenomenon is replacing the selfie as the way to demonstrate who you are...

I never cared for the selfie...only took one when I had to for the first Beyond Layers course...

But this idea of expressing yourself through sharing what you have on your shelves...bingo! lightbulb moment!

As I discovered as I posted a couple of shots on Instagram, this idea resonates with others...so for the month of May, I'm going to post a shelfie everyday on Instagram...and I invite all of you to join in...

I've been using Instagram to record my artistic musings...I love that its quick, fast and visual... 
I hope that you'll follow along...

Also joining up with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday...there might be one or two shelfie geeks in that group...

  8. Like I told you on IG, I'm in! I can hardly wait for May to begin. We have a few weekend excursions planned for May so I think it will be fun to snap a 'shelfie' wherever I may be. At my age, this is a much better idea than a selfie. Ugh!

  9. I'd rather do a shelfie than a selfie any day!
