Happy Sunday! I am so excited to reveal the new list for December. Before you say anything I realize I am posting on the 2nd and it starts on the 1st. I can’t even begin to tell you how swamped I have been for the last week! I kept saying, I will do it later to myself… Well later finally arrived, a day late and a dollar short. (teeheheeee)

This month is super fun. I like to make December all about the fun, magical things we experience. So enjoy!

{{{a good thing to do is make this picture your screen saver so you will NOT forget to play the game}}}

You can print it out, put it on your fridge, at your desk or just keep it in your pictures album on your phone. It’s also good to set a daily reminder on your phone.

The HASH tag for every picture you post will be


(it’s very important that you put this in the comment section for each picture)

If you are new to this game I host every month let me tell you a little about it. It’s a fun game that anyone can play. It’s a simple way to stop and smell the roses. I know, that sounded so cliche but you understand. We all live busy lives and sometimes we miss little things that are really HUGE important things. It’s not hard to mess up because each day represents that day in the month. Don’t worry if you skip a day, we still want you to pick right back up and start taking pictures!

Share your pictures on your INSTAGRAMTWITTER,FACEBOOK or wherever! I am in love with instagram.  I love that I can post a picture to facebook or twitter right from it. 3 in 1. These are little things that make me happy.

Some fun apps that I am ALWAYS using to add flare to my pictures are:

(this app has a ton of filters to make your pics amazing)
(I love this app because you can add sparkle and shine to your pictures)
Collage Day 
(FREE, this is the one stop shop to add washi tape or whatever to your pics)
(use this to put more than one picture in one frame and you can write on your pics here)
(this app allows you to put your pics in BUBBLE’S and cute bubbles at that)

I hope you enjoy the month of December! See you in the next post.

Don’t forget to join me in the Live google hangout I will be hosting this week! The Graphics Fairy and Shabby Creek Cottage will be co-hosting with me!

I think the world needs to see, hear or do this. I will sorta call this a little project/game. It surely makes you stop and smell the roses (or camera buttons).

A blogger friend started this and I think it’s magnificent. It’s called Photo a Day. You guessed it, it’s exactly what it means. Each day you are to take a picture of whatever the description is for that day and post it on instagram. If you are not familiar with Instagram you can find it in your App section on your phone.

You ask: Why do I do this every day? How do I have or find the time to do this? How do I remember? The best thing I can tell you is this. Yes, somedays you might forget but after the first week you will start to remember. I find the time just like I do everything else in my life. My life is busy and hectic, but all for the right reasons. I do this because it forces me to STOP. Take a look around ME. Take a PICTURE. Then file it in my MEMORY. You might start noticing things that you would have passed by any other day.

You start seeing the beauty in things that are simple, like the texture on something or the colors in a certain picture.

So, FATMUMSLIM does a new one every month. I will post my month of June below and I will also put the new list for July up. Save it to your phone so you won’t forget where to find it. Do it! I promise it will bring happiness to your life. Share your pictures daily with your Twitter or Facebook friends. I can guarantee they will appreciate them!

Share with the world, at least in my case that is what I am doing. It feels good to release and not care who sees them! I need to start getting used to that! hahaha

Here is the new JULY list: Make sure when you share your pictures you use the hashtag #photoadayjuly

 Enjoy my June #photoadayjune
