#morethanaframe is BACK!

Hi friends! Amber and I are so excited to announce that we are starting another round of #morethanaframe! We enjoyed this last break but we started to CRAVE this community after a certain amount of time. If you aren't familiar with #morethanaframe, read on for the details! Keep your eye out for the prompt reminders each Sunday! Also, we would love if you could jump in ASAP with an introduction post so we can get to know you!


 Life's always better in community. That's why we come online and seek connections with other bloggers who write through their messes. That's why family dinners are joyful and chaotic and fill more than our bellies. To live is to crave connection, or so it seems. And our creative lives are no different.

We need people to push us forward, cheer us on, encourage our deepest of dreams. We crave the ability to share in our processes with one another, granting ourselves the chance to see the ups and downs of the creatives around us. And, lately, this itch to connect has been stronger. 

ENTER COLLABORATION. 

Community is why collaborations are delightful and divine. Together, Amber and I have been able to dream up a collaboration that not only benefits us, but benefits YOU and works towards our greater goals of fostering community.

Our collaboration came quickly in conversations about connections and making the online more real, more honest, more vulnerable. And from here the idea for #morethanaframe, a new Instagram hashtag that we hope to see become a community, bloomed. 

THE HEART BEHIND #morethanaframe: 

We know community doesn't simply happen in highlight reels, in pretty composed pictures, in beautiful calligraphy, but just outside of those square frames. Community happens in the way we nod our heads about that quote you shared, smile while we send a pink confetti bomb emoticon for your victories, and feel heavy through the losses. 

HOW DOES #morethanaframe WORK? 

It's simple, really. Each Sunday Amber and I will post the prompt for the week. It'll be a single word to help center your thoughts. On Mondays, we will  use the #morethanaframe hashtag while sharing our frames and the hearts outside of that square space.

You can post at any time during the week. You can post one time or two times or multiple times. You can skip the sharing and simply comment all over the place. We just hope to see sharing our lives beyond the online brands we've created happen.

Take advantage of both the picture and the caption. Something weighing on your heart? A trend appear over and over again in your life? Itching to give context to your creative process? Do it right here in the caption and let us connect with you beyond the beautiful blog (or brand) you've created.

Each week we'll feature our favorite shots and frames. Of course, you're allowed to participate in whatever capacity you desire. This means, you don't have a blog and you don't have to worry because this is about community. 

Without further delay, we've got the prompts for you: 


THE BEST NEWS IS THIS: YOU'RE INVITED. 

You're invited to participate in #morethanaframe on Sunday and all week long by posting your picture and using the hashtag. PLEASE feel free to use our images and share this hashtag with your friends, family, and followers.We'll hit it off starting THIS Sunday, October 18th.
