Launch Party! Big Picture InstaLink

Hey friends, it's finally here! Making Mrs M and I have been scheming this link up for about two months and today it's live on both of our blogs! It's with enormous excitement that we introduce you to a fun new linkup:

Big Picture InstaLink (BPIL) is a little bit different than your run-of-the-mill link up party. Here's how it works:

1) BPIL runs throughout the month, and each month is a different theme.

2) BPIL is an Instagram linkup. Simply link up with your account on the linkytools below and use the current month's hashtag on Instagram to participate (use the hashtag on many photos throughout the month)!

3) BPIL is all about building community and finding common threads that connect us all. Interact, interact, interact!

November's Big Picture InstaLink Details:
It's November, and you know what that means. The holidays are officially here! Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. We thought this month we would start the linkup off with a "Give Thanks" theme.

Thanksgiving is all about counting our blessings, so by using this month's hashtag, #GiveThanksBPIL, post photos throughout the month of things you are grateful for! You can post photos of your family, your home, a delicious meal, or even those warm fuzzy socks by the fire. Whatever gives you a sense of thankfulness is fair game!

We cannot wait to see all of your photos and we are eager to start building this community. As a thank you for participating, we are giving a whole bunch of amazing Thanksgiving-themed goodies away!

Winning is simple. all you have to do is link up with us, enter the rafflecopter below, follow both Jaelan and my blog on Bloglovin', and post five photos with the hashtag #GiveThanksBPIL by the end of the giveaway deadline. One winner will be chosen randomly by rafflecopter on November 19th and the prize will be delivered well before Thanksgiving dinner is served. Entries will be verified, so just be honest. :)

Included in the giveaway loot is:
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays cookbook - for when you just don't know what's missing on your menu
A festive apron - to help keep your Thanksgiving outfit spotless despite the mess you make in the kitchen
A pumpkin shaped casserole baker - YES, this is oven safe!
Festive dishtowels - to help you keep that kitchen clean (or hey... just to look cute)
Leftovers Stickers - to identify what's in that tupperware your packing full of yummy food for later

Now the fun part! Let's get this party started. Grab the button above, link up, and let's start connecting!

  1. Woohoo! So excited to get this thing going.

  2. So fun!! I'm going to definitely share in the picture fun this month!

  3. This is so fun! The Pioneer Woman's book alone is worth entering for. I can't even watch her show anymore because it makes me want to eat all the things.. And the pumpkin casserole baker is so flipping adorable... =)

    1. Jaelan and I were saying the SAME thing! I told her to photocopy all the pages of the book for me... And am trying to convince her I'm eligible to enter our own giveaway ;)

    Seriously though I want it all, I have been wanting to buy a Pioneer Woman cookbook after I read her love story book.
    Anyway yay I'm excited! I really don't celebrate thanksgiving and have never really done the 'give thanks' thing before but I'm totally in! :)

    1. RIGHT?

      And holluh! We're recruiting Aussie transplants to participate in the great Thanksgiving festivities. Boom.

  5. This is such a different and fun idea, I love it! Just joined!

    1. Thanks Ashley! I have too... Is it wrong for me to seriously want to win my own giveaway?

  8. This is such a fun linkup! Thanks for hosting!
