Its the new “Twitter Challenge” and it has employees at arts and crafts stores upset.
Dubbed the “Hobby Lobby Challenge”, social media users looking for their moment of fame are hitting the floral department of arts and crafts stores taking pictures… of themselves…
Kelsey Maggart is credited with starting the “Hobby Lobby challenge” after she shared a series of portraits on Twitter that she took of her friend at the store. Maggart, who is a professional photographer, said she was surprised and happy about the attention her Hobby Lobby photos received.
Maggart said that once she posted the photos she was “shocked” to see the reaction on social media. “My social media has been crazy recently and it’s just so insane to me that I was able to inspire this many people to go out and do this shoot themselves,” she said. “It really does feel amazing.”
The craft store photoshoots have since moved outside Hobby Lobby stores and into WalMart, Michaels, Target and other retailers. People started sharing their own pictures using the hashtag #HobbyLobbyChallenge and have now moved onto the broader based #uglylocationchallenge.
