Us in October #MyMonthlyMontage

You may remember that I made this video in September, but if you didn't see it, then I'll explain a little about what it is that I'm doing for my family at the end of every single month.. 

In September 2015 I decided to start making monthly montage videos of clips that we've taken as a family throughout the month, putting together different video clips that my family and I have taken throughout the month (some clips from our phones and others form our HD camera). It's about the ordinary, everyday moments. 

Because how many of us pull our phones/cameras out to record a little snippet of a moment we don't want to forget, but then end up forgetting that we ever recorded it as it gets buried within other countless amounts of photos and videos that we go on to take?

It's about dusting those clips off, putting them together and re-living the good moments that the moth has brought us. It's about slowing life down and taking the opportunity to remember the everyday, ordinary moments, that are so often the very best. 

So this is #MyMonthlyMontage. This is Us in October..

You can Subscribe to us on YouTube here.

I've just opened ‪#‎MyMonthlyMontage‬ up for you to link up to, as so many of you said you loved the idea and wanted to join in! I know the lovely Hayley from Sparkles and Stretchmarks has just uploaded hers. But if anyone else is interested this month, it's not too late!

If you took any snippets of video in October of you and your family (the one's we all take on our phones because we don't want to forget a great moment but then forget about as they get buried under heaps and heaps of other photos and videos that we go on to take), dust them off, put them all together and come and join in with #MyMonthlyMontage - You've got until the end of this month to publish Octobers! They really will become priceless to you and your family in years to come! So please share with anyone else that you think might be interested! 



  1. Fab idea Alex I miss your last one but I love it! I always start flogging days but then I stop and just delete the footage! I am definitely doing one for November :) xx

    1. Thanks Kerry! This is exactly what #MyMonthlyMontage is about. It's the little snippets and moments of life that we want to remember. Never delete the footage, put it all together in one big montage and re-live your month! Can't wait to see yours in November! xx

  2. Aw this is such a lovely idea Alex, and I loved your one for September too. I definitely would love to start doing this, I take so many little clips on my iPhone and never watch them again. I think like Kerry says, I might also do one for November, you've inspired me! That's such a gorgeous black and white photo of your beautiful family too xx

  3. I love this idea. I will be doing one for November for sure x

  4. This is beautiful and something I would love to do, weekly vlogs are not very good for me as the kids are at school all day so it is just me and the dog! Could get rather boring but I love creating them so this would be my better option as I can capture the moments throughout the month. Great idea! Are you going to set this up as a linky? Would love to join in with everyones.

  5. What a great idea. I so want to do this.

  6. What a lovely idea Alex. I loved your little snippets! xx

  7. I will be editing and joining in, what beautiful footage. xx
