A DAY IN THE LIFE

 

The intent behind this post  to share a day in the life of a maker/artist/business owner. How you start your day, your work process, if you take time to step away, how you wind down and transition to the later part of your day, etc.. Something true and pretty indicative of your real life.

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVeR

Once a month I will open a spot on the CYL Instagram for a takeover! The idea behind this is to boost engagement, offer cross-promotion and give some insight into our Squad members. Each takeover will last for one 24-hour period. Because the feed is curated I am going to be going through a selection and approval process for this opportunity. 

To be considered please thoughtfully fill out the form below.

Please use this section to give me an idea of what you would share throughout the takeover. Details are appreciated! And keep in mind the goal is to give insight into our Squad and the members involved. Keep in mind that if you are planning content that is somehow relevant to what may be happening at that time, preference will be given. It would also be appreciated if you could share how you may promote this through your own channels.
All spring spots are now booked. Please check back in Summer.
 

INSTAGRAM BLURB

Every month I will be choosing a theme for the CYL Instagram. I'd love to have the voices of the Squad members be heard, so I'm opening this up. Feel free to apply to one of themes below, or all! Because the feed is curated I am going to be going through a selection and approval process for this opportunity. 

 

APRIL: EARTH

April means Earth Day! During this month I want to explore our connection to nature. Feel free to talk about our obligation to this planet; what steps you are taking to be a steward to Earth; how nature impacts your work... the sky is the limit!
