As an editor, stories are what excite me most. However, there’s more to storytelling than words alone (though I do adore them); telling a story through images can be even more powerful. And that’s why my colleagues and I are so obsessed with Instagram, the addictive, inspiring, occasionally envy-inducing photo-sharing app we can’t stop scrolling — in line at the grocery store, between meetings at work, and even under the covers before bedtime. (Hey, we even did a how-to about it!)
It’s no surprise the Etsy community has embraced Instagram with gusto, sharing their behind-the-scenes processes, new product lines, and even their favorite Etsy purchases. Now Etsy has joined the conversation, sharing our favorite DIY projects, maker stories, studio and home tours, cool products, and highlights from Etsy HQ at Instagram.com/Etsy.
Inspired by our members’ endless creativity, today we’re kicking off the first in a series of #dayinthelife posts with Chicago-based jewelry designer Christina of Boo and Boo Factory. Follow along as she shares photos of her colorful studio, textured leather statement necklaces, and maybe even an adorable dog!
