What an amazing and heartwarming response to last week’s prompt! Within minutes of the email landing I was being tagged in creations on Instagram. No two are the same, all crammed full of narrative and real life and our beautiful humanness. As Lindsay said in her comment on the last challenge, “so many are looking for online community and influencers sharing places to find it… but this feels like real community”. I hope it feels that way for you, too.

This week’s prompt is inspired by the wonderful rainbows we’ve seen folks adding to their windows and homes in recent weeks, and by the email I received after sharing this photo in last week’s email from somebody who said it made them feel strangely emotional.

​So here’s what we’re going to do:

The Challenge

​Set a timer for 15 minutes and create your own interpretation of the image above. If you live in a flat and/or don’t have a doorstep it might be a little more challenging, but it’s just another opportunity for creativity: try using a doormat, a threshold, or a garden gate. Make it your own and tell us your story.


Socks. Or shoes, or slippers, or bare feet – yours, or a little person’s? Whose story is this photo going to tell? My mismatched socks probably tell you a fair amount about me and my approach to life – what can your footwear choices tell us about you? Make it personal and fun.


​Let’s make a rainbow. Orla drew mine in coloured chalk but you can make yours in any number of ways. Flower petals; coloured paper; a rainbow on a book book cover; drawn on to an empty photo in an iphone app. A selection of random objects in a variety of colours. A painting laid on the floor. Light through a prism throwing a beautiful rainbow onto the floor.​


​Get your vantage point. Like with last week’s challenge, the angle you hold your phone or camera at here will determine how much we see. With us all stuck at home right now I’m really drawn to sharing a glimpse of the indoor/outdoor divide: that subtle line in our home that determines where we’re safe to be, and where we’re maybe not.
Pay attention to symmetry and straight lines here too – notice how my feet and the rainbow are central to the shot, but other elements like the door keep it from feeling too perfect or tidy.


Edit and share! Only if you want to, or course. You can tag me on Instagram @me_and_orla, and use the tag #15MinuteMagic – I’ll feature as many of my faves as possible on my Stories and blog.​

And if you’d like more 15-minute challenges like this with me – creating everything from photos like to lead magnets, press coverage, blog content and business growth – my program 15 Minute Magic is beginning on Wednesday, so this is your last opportunity to join.

Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

One more issue is that video gaming became one of the all-time main forms of entertainment for people spanning various ages. Kids enjoy video games, and adults do, too. The XBox 360 is amongst the favorite video games systems for people who love to have a huge variety of games available to them, as well as who like to play live with some others all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your opinions.

First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to askif you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts beforewriting. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.I do enjoy writing however it just seemslike the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?Thank you!

858399 186321The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as significantly as this 1. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, nonetheless I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear can be a bunch of whining about something which you could fix for those that werent too busy in search of attention. 559535

One thing I would really like to say is always that before obtaining more personal computer memory, check out the machine into which it could well be installed. If your machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory limit is 3.25GB. Adding above this would merely constitute any waste. Make certain that one’s motherboard can handle this upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task..
