This March (like the last two) I’ve been taking part in an instagram challenge called March Meet The Maker.
I’m not sure how many people are actively into using Instagram, I know lots of my friends don’t have it - or only have it because their kids do! But in the creative and maker world it seems to be a really popular social media platform (all the lovely pictures I guess!) , and the March Meet the Maker challenge is kind of a big deal.
It was set up by Joanne Hawker in 2016, and basically each day throughout March there are prompts for the “makers” of this world to post onto instagram.
But as Joanne says
“it's more than just a challenge, it's a creative community that comes together to show people what they can do. It's about building each other up, making new connections, telling your small business story, growing your confidence (and Instagram following) and most importantly, it's about putting yourself out there. “
It’s really fun to take part in, and you really do get a sense of the wider community of makers, all out there, doing what they love. If you’re a maker do pop along and join in, but even if you’re not, I’m pretty sure if you’re here looking at my blog you’re interested in handmade goodness, and there’s plenty of it going on this month. Just search for the hashtag #marchmeetthemaker and find some wonderful, new talented folk out there.
