If you haven’t been following along on my new feature account @creativelife_happylife, then you simply must!! It’s been so fun.
What is @creativelife_happylife?
This is an Instagram account dedicated to celebrating creativity and gainful self employment through craft! If you are a maker, artist or creative, this account is for you!!
Tag #creativelifehappylife for single image features on the account! All your art, craft, maker-space, supply hoard, messy desk, paint covered hands and creative pursuit photos can be tagged #creativelifehappylife! I love seeing what you are making in your studio and sharing it on the account – of course, always with your permission!
What is a Maker Takeover!?
On the account, there is a visual pattern in the feed. Every fourth image is text based. In between those text images are features – reposts from the #creativelifehappylife feed. A maker takeover is when three of those images between two text images are YOURS!! All three!
