Started by ceramicist Katie Robbins, #createinspring is the ideal hashtag to share your favourite things about the season where everything bursts into life. Share your spring-inspired makes and what you’re working on as the days get brighter.
#leaf_ladies came about when a group of makers from all over the world wanted to share their love of greenery — as well as the items that plants inspire them to make. It’s a great way to check out how other women bring a love of plants into their crafts — from pottery to pins — and to share your own creations. There’s also the tag #leaf_ladies_habitat to take a look at how other makers use plants into their homes and studios.
As we move from a wild winter into a glorious spring, the hashtag #aseasonalshift is the best place to share all the first signs of new life. The tag also works all year round as the seasons shift, and celebrates all the new colours each has to offer.
There’s nothing like the peace and calm you can find in the great outdoors — either in real life or through Insta. #quietinthewild is a great way to share a love of the wildness, whether it’s the coast, countryside or forest that floats your boat.
#wipsandblooms is a tag that celebrates not just what you make, but the creativity and process that goes into it. Hosted by A Playful Day and Ceramic Magpie, this is a tag for makers who want to bring a bit of nature into their crafting. Kate O’Sullivan of A Playful Day puts it best when she says that the tag is, “a moment to pause, to reflect and to acknowledge the details of what we are making and crafting. To notice time is passing and enjoy the process.”
If your home or workspace is filled with foliage, #urbanjunglebloggers is the hashtag for you. Hosted by the blogging duo of the same name, the tag highlights the beauty and benefits of having houseplants. From succulents to palms, find others who fill their favourite places with greenery. They also share two pictures a day of their favourite Instagram snaps from everyone who uses the tag.
Fill your feed with flowers, birds and even frogs with the hashtag #natureonthepage. This tag attracts some awesome photographers, who will get you hooked on their nature-themed snaps. #natureflatlay is another similar tag to check out if you like your photos styled with foraged finds.
