asking for trouble

March Meet The Maker


If you follow any creative business owners on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a new Meet The Maker photo challenge happening this month. Set by Joanne Hawker, there’s daily prompts for the whole month so we can share what goes on behind the scenes.

Day 2 of #meetthemaker is Favourite to make and that's definitely repeat patterns for me.

After doing Meet The Maker Week in December I’ve signed on for the month and I’m trying to post all new photos so come on over and follow me. Yesterday had me playing with Boomerang and I’ve already made my first time lapse drawing video for later in the month so there’s lots of fun stuff to see.

There’s still time to join in if this is the first you heard about it, or just check out everyone’s posts with the #marchmeetthemaker and #meetthemaker hashtags.
