Instagram challenges are the best. You get to find new accounts to follow, it creates a great sense of community and engagement, you feel inspired, and you end up gaining new followers along the way. I've hosted two in the past (#30PhotosInBetween and #31PhotosInBetween) but I found it hard to always stick to the prompts. So when Taylor and I decided to host a holiday Instagram challenge, we knew we wanted to leave it up to your creative genius.

Introducing… #MyHolidaySpark! This instagram challenge starts NOW and runs until January 1st. Taylor and I decided we wanted to make it extra special by offering a prize at the end of the challenge. We'll be giving away a blanket scarf and $50 gift card to the winner.

Throughout the challenge we'll be sharing our favorite instagrams along the way! Make sure you're following along with Taylor (@thedailytay) and me (@heleneinbetween) to win and be featured.

So here's the deal:

When: Now, until January 1st

Where: Instagram!

Who: Taylor (@thedailytay) and Helene (@heleneinbetween)

Why? For fun! And for a chance to win a prize!

What: We'll be sharing our favorite ‘grams along the way on our blogs.

Prize: A blanket scarf and $50 gift card

How? Tag your photos with #MyHolidaySpark and follow (@thedailytay) and Helene (@heleneinbetween)

Feel free to share the challenge so others join in on the fun. I'm really excited for this challenge and I'm going to start using the hashtag… now! Hope you'll join us! There were a lot of exclamation points in this post, but I'm pumped for this instagram challenge. I can't help it.
