MARCH MEET THE MAKER INSTAGRAM CHALLENGE
Designer Joanne Hawker put out an Instagram challenge to all makers. With as many photos as you see of the challenge, a lot of makers got excited about it. I know I did.
I’ve had my life turned upside down with a new baby so things slip my mind or I run out of day. I was a little behind but I still completed the challenge. This challenge lets fans get to know the makers and makers get to know each other as well. I know I love meeting other artists, especially knowing the behind the scenes of the art.
Joanne put out the first challenge last year and I missed it. By the way thanks Joanne! I realized that even with a bio and a cv it’s so impersonal and not really saying much about the artist. That’s why I chose to share it on my other social media and write this post.
I started late and caught up. Not too hard, still fun watching people under the #marchmeetthemaker hashtag.
I will give a few details on the photos chosen. I’ll keep it short, I promise.
