out of hiding

Happy Friday folks! :-) Some of you know that so far I've been a big, fat hider on Instagram. I kept my account private and had no followers. It didn't fit in with the effort to simplify my life. I was just doing it for me; not as a social media type thing. But last night I had a change of heart, so if you'd like to follow me on Instagram, you can find me under "karlibonnie." I'm still going to keep my account private, and just share pictues with my mom-blogger friends. So Sarah, Stacey, Ashley and Courtney...you can find me now - LOL! ;-) If you'd like to follow me on Instagram and I don't click on you to approve, it's because I don't recognize your Instagram name. Just drop me an email and say "hey! It's me!" :-)

If you don't have Instagram and would like to see what I've been up to, here's the link to my Instagrid. You can click on each picture to enlarge. (Edit: It looks like the "More" button at the bottom of the Instagrid is not working today; it's probably just a temporary glitch. I have 72 pictures, but right now it will only let you see 20).

AND... in light of the recent egg-throwing, heckling, wedgies and atomic wedgies (where the elastic band of your underwear actually goes over your head) from members of my extended family that are not hip to my iPhone pictures, this post should come as good news to you. I will be sharing FEWER iPhone pics on my blog, and we will resume next week with our regularly scheduled clean, clear, non-iPhone photos. ♥

HOWEVER... don't think you'll get off that easily. Here are a few of my recent iPhone shots.
Just think of it as a last hurrah. ;-)



And of course a collage...



There! It's out of my system! :-) From now on, if you'd like to see my iPhone shots, just click here. I also added the link to my menu bar so you can find it easily. Hope everyone has a great weekend! ♥♥

I love those school supply shots! Circle frames are so cool!

Ashley Sisk said...

I wish I had an iphone...so I could join your little party. I'm trying to convince the hubs to join instagram but he says he just likes taking pictures for him. I am now subscribing though by email so I can be fully up to date on you...stalking perhaps? :)

Jess said...

I'm with Ashley. All you iphone users are making me dream of iphones in my sleep... and somehow I just don't think that's healthy.

You are such a funny lady! I so wish I knew you in real life! (for many reasons, and speaking of... I'll try to reply to your last email later today)

When did TT grow up? That doesn't mean my Bean has too, does it!?

Brooke said...

I think I need one of those fancy schmancy Iphone gadgets. Love all the shots Chica!!!! ;D

Amarie said...

Love the circles! And personally, I LOVE seeing your iphone pics! Photography is photography, to me, no matter what medium you use. Will you post some from time to time for those of us who don't use Instagram? :-)

Kristal said...

I don't have an iphone so I don't have instagram...

LOVE the circle shots!

Mandy@ a sorta fairytale said...

I'm on instagram and just sent you a request! :)

Melanie said...

Ahhh... I heart your iphone pics!
Yay! I have another good reason for getting an iphone! Always love me some crayon shots, AND how crazy cute is your lil girl!!! Sooooo CUTE!

Kristin said...

I too wish i had an iphone... instagram shots look so so fun!! :)

Sarah said...

YAY! Exciting. I saw you ask to follow me. I almost said no. ha ha. Just kidding. I jumped up and down. I love those three with the scissors, paperclips and crayons. You can make anything look beautiful.

Naomi said...

Aaaaah, makes me WANT my iPhone even MORE, didn't think that was possible! But then we could be Instagram friends! ;o) I never ever grow tired of your iPhone photos. Sure, they are totally different than your regular shots, but it is all in the eye, and YOU have the eye! Your perspective is amazing! Love the car wash shot - love the phone line shots, love them all, of course, but I am thinking my favorite this time is the back shot of TT walking towards the stairs!!!! I am assuming it is TT? FABULOUS Karli!
XOXOXO

Natalie said...

I for one love your instagram shots. You are good to get such great shots from a phone. Impressive!

Jill Samter Photography said...

OK, first of all I don't even know what instagram or whatever is.

Second, I don't have an iphone either.

Third, I love each shot you shared today!

Fourth, I just joined pinterest and loving every minute of the inspiration I am finding on there.

I don't tweet or whatever it is called. I'm not interested in knowing where all of my friends are every second of the day. Call me crazy but I can barely keep up with my life let alone all those that I know. And now there is a photo kind of thing like that? Really? Goodness I'm going to be left behind for sure on this one!

Hugs and love! Your ROCK no matter what you use for photo taking.

HEY I'm going to my first REAL fair in over 20 yrs next week with the kids. But guess who will be all by herself for some photo fun!?? YEP, me!

Sheesh didn't mean to make this so long!

Love you!
Jill
PS I got all excited thinking I would see photos of YOU!!!!!

Eileen said...

I'm liking your iPhone photos! I am definitely getting an iPhone. Just waiting for my current phone to die. It's on a downward spiral, maybe I should just help it along? :)
I love the circle frames. Very cool.

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

Love the first set of the circled images. I completely understand the need to keep certain things a bit private. Sometimes you need that little bit that is just for yourself.

Michelle said...

Eh, who needs an iphone when you got an Android with Vignette on it? (um, the instigram equivalent on android) And while I do take photos on my cell, I sure don't share them often enough (although I have a bunch saved for whenever I can make time to do some blog posts! :) I'm trying to unbury myself from my inbox and my 2mo worth of unsorted/organized/culled photos. Ick, I don't even want to take more until I get all straightened up! (and I'm so awful for not replying back to you sooner!!)

Anyway... sorry for those wedgies, but I love your iphone shots (and that one of TT with the sunrays in the collage --- WOW WOW WOW!!! :)

hehe... and I see you got a crayon shot in -- very cool with colors on the supplies :)

xoxo

You are a nut...talking about my Instagram collage. You know why? 'Cause I was trying to do one like yours!! LOL! I am so irritated that the storyboard I used leaves too much space between. Ha! This has cracked me up. LOVE your school supplies and your little one making a kissy face. :o)
