Yay! I don’t know about you, but this daily photo challenge has really helped me dust off my IG account & step up my photography game while also helping me out of the rut I’d been stuck in since my divorce. So I’m stoked to be launching another month of prompts – can you believe we had almost a thousand new photos uploaded to Instagram with the #creativedaily hashtag last month?! Whoa. That’s insane! With over 10,000 images already in the collection, it’s fast becoming a trending craft tag on Instagram! That is so cool!
Ahem, all that wild excitement aside, I hope you guys will join me for another month of this fun photo challenge! And if you want to jump in now, here are the last three days prompts:
29: Needed This Today
30: Positive Vibes
31: Looking Up
New here? #creativedaily serves as both a creative outlet & a way for makers to network on Instagram. The dated prompts help makers & creatives come up with fresh content for their IG accounts besides the basic product pictures & mug shots, all while building a community of artists, designers and makers. It’s incredible to look through the #creativedaily feed on Instagram & see how differently we all interpret a single word!
To participate, all you have to do is a snap a picture that relates to the dated prompt, upload it to Instagram with a description & add the #creativedaily hashtag! Be sure to click the tag and check out what other maker babes and dudes are posting daily, too!
Here is the February prompt list. It’s sized for Instagram so feel free to download it and share there to help spread the word about the challenge – because hey, the more people involved means the more people seeing your awesome pictures, so why not?! – plus if you want you can also repost the graphic on your blog or Facebook pages, too. Wherever you wanna spread the word is cool with me, let’s just get people excited about making things, taking pictures and being creative daily!
Want to help me plan for March? Leave your suggestion’s for March prompts in the comments of this post! 😀
After a brief break to celebrate the holidays and travel from NC to OH, then back to NC, then to GA, then back to OH, then HOME to NC finally, I am finally back to the daily grind and back to my weekly Maker Made Monday posts!
These week I’m showing off the colorful work of Happy Guppy by Danielle Begnaud. I have been friends with Danielle for over a year and adore her colorful, fun work! Having her come crash at my house in Missouri before Strawberry Swing Indie Craft Fair last year was awesome! Danielle is genuinely a sweet, funny & kind maker with a huge heart and vibrant soul.
My favorite things Danielle makes is these amigurumi cacti snuggled into their colorful terracota pots. These hold a special place in my heart because my ma has grow & bred cacti & succulents for as long as I can remember and her home is full of pokey, prickly goodness every where you turn.
I’m also fawning over her amazing afghans – squeeeee! They are so colorful and cozy looking. I want for every room in my house, please!
And I know Christmas/Yule literally just happened but can was just all just pretend like it’s perfectly normal to already be planning next year’s decorations?! Because I am totally going to be custom ordering one of these tree skirts for our fantastic purple & pink tree next year!!
If you wanna stay in touch with Danielle & be awed by her colorful awesomeness daily, head over to Instagram and click “follow”. You will love her feed!
