Hi again, it’s Bettina @bettina_brent with my feature - a beautiful entry from @everydaynaseeha for our ‘my home’ challenge with @kreohome
Home is the perfect place for us to be creative, there’s nothing better than spending a few quiet hours (who am I kidding, I have three kids, it’s never really quiet for long!) faffing around with a shelfie or a bed. I adore seeing other stylist’s homes and the love they’ve put into creating it, I also love being inspired by other people’s passions, be it painting, drawing, lettering or weaving.
There’s only one more day to get your entries in! Please make sure all your entries are eligible to win by following and mentioning @creativelysquared, our sponsor @kreohome and the hashtag #cs_myhome . You could win a $200 voucher or gorgeous @suis_official water bottle!

Hi, I’m Bettina @bettina_brent, I’m so excited to be hosting my first @creativelysquared challenge along with our sponsor @kreohome! I have loved and entered many times, but this week’s theme is one I’m truly passionate about... #cs_myhome
So if home is where your heart is, mine is feeling comfortable, safe and happy with my family in the house that we renovated and literally poured our blood (Mr Brent Builder), sweat and tears (that’s me) into.
Where do you feel at home? For some it’s the beach, or hearing their kids laughing in the next room, is it where your friends are, or with pets? Or like me, do you love being surrounded with textiles, candles and interiors magazines?
I can’t wait to see everyone’s ideas of home!
Lets all send a big thank you to Gina from @_hello_g_ for hosting our #cs_handsinframe challenge this past week!
Gina is always so passionate and active in sharing support and appreciation within the community.
If you enjoyed the challenge last week and want to thank Gina for her efforts, please leave a comment for her below!
Our challenge this week is all about home sweet home! We would love to see you share your space and create a tribute to the things that make your house feel like home.
Home doesn't have to be just about interiors, it can be purely symbolic or a even a homage to the people you share it with. You could be inspired by your home town, country of origin or wherever holds your heart.
Theme: My Home #cs_myhome

Hashtagging on Instagram... is it even #worthit anymore?
We’re told that hashtags allow you to improve your visibility and share your content with interested users - but do they actually help? We have done some research and experimenting to try and bring some clarity to the mystery of hashtagging.
You can find the conclusions we came to and our suggestions for hashtag use on the full blog - link in bio.
How lovely is this shot by @graciemc8 😍🙌 Thank you for sharing your image with the #creativelysquared hashtag!
Happy Humpday! And hip hip hurray for hands 🙌

Hello everyone! I’m so pleased to be back again for my 2nd time as a guest host!
This week’s theme, we want to see your lovely hand or hands in frame. It doesn’t have to be your hands, it could your friend’s or baby/kids hands. The possibilities are endless with this theme and for me, I think it makes the photo more engaging!
I’m looking forward to see what you come up with. Have fun & enjoy! 👋 Gina @_hello_g_
