In recent months my Instagram account has become one of my favourite social networks. The community are really lovely (just last night I met with some Instagram friends from several corners of the world for the first time and it was a brilliant evening of laughter and conversation), plus there’s there instancy and ease to the process that feels so welcome in today’s busy online world. Not to mention a seemingly endless abundance of visual inspiration – hands up if you fall into the Instagram black hole of visual abyss at least three times a day, please! But how often do you scroll back through your own Instagram feed? If you’re like me, then you don’t find yourself doing this all that often, which is a shame because in many ways it’s a visual diary of our lives.
When I discovered Sticky9 (formerly Stickygram), I started exploring my own Instagram feed on a more regular basis. Why? I discovered that Sticky9 give Instagrammers the opportunity to print their Instagram pictures as magnets and jigsaw puzzles and I was hooked from the off – it helps that they currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all their Instagram magnets through March 31st. I’ve created Instagram magnet sheets in a variety of themes, from a stripe story to sneak peeks of my apartment (seen in full in my new book!) and photographic highlights from a recent trip to NYC. I also ordered a large sized jigsaw magnet of my Flatiron building Instagram to have in my office because the building now hold’s special significance as my US publishing company are based in the building! Where would you display your Instagram magnets and which Instagram pictures would you like to get printed?
