April Photo Walk Recap

The weather could not have been more perfect for our intameet photo walk on Saturday. It was SO gorgeous! The group met up at Tivoli and Lee for mimosas and then got to walking! Printflow printed the postcards that Ciera Design created for us so we could remember our hashtags and the path. We all chatted and snapped photos together as we walked around the Warehouse District. Along the route, we stopped by the Before I Die wall, then HARO for some amazing sweets and coffee and ended at Bellocq for a few cocktails, yummy cheese and great conversation! It was an awesome day and we definitely want to plan another photo walk soon! To see everyone’s photos and perspective of the day check out #madeinmindinstameet and #instameetnola on Insagram. If you attended, don’t forget to order your Sticky9 magnets!

FREE TO ATTEND – CLICK HERE TO RSVP

Hello creative friends! You all love Instagram as much as I do right?! And Instamgramming with other creatives is way better than doing it alone! So we are hosting our first Instameet photo walk on Saturday, April 19th at 3pm.

  • You don’t have to be a photographer or even an Instagrammer to attend. You can bring a cell phone, a digital camera, heck, even a disposable camera if you want to participate!
  • Our super awesome sponsor Sticky9 is gifting each attendee with a free pack of their Instagram magnets! You choose nine of your own Instagram photos and get them back as magnets. They are super cool, I’ve written about them on my blog before!

We’ll walk this route together and snap photos along the way!

Jasmine Moves to New York

This is bitter sweet news, but my sister and Made In Mind partner in crime is following her dreams and moving to New York! By the time our next event rolls around she’ll already be there! No worries, I’m going to keep The Made In Mind Social rolling!

December Cozy Cabin Holiday Party Recap

The holiday season is all about getting together and sharing some love and that is exactly what we wanted our December meet-up to be! We were so excited to team up with A Little Happy and bring our two groups together. We had such a great turnout and are so thankful for those who made it happen and all who attended. Pearl Wine Co. was the perfect space for our cozy cabin theme and the decor from Mrs. Vintage fit right in and transformed the space wonderfully. We got to snack on delicious corn grits and spinach salad with pepper jelly vinaigrette thanks to Zea Rotisserie & Grill!

Our swag bags were a much anticipated part of the night and were almost gone right at 6pm… y’all are some loyal attendees! This fun treat wouldn’t have been possible without our contributors E. Sabrie Studio, Loomed Nola, Dry Bar Bleu, Passion Lilie, Rise, Lipscape and Kismet Cosmetics!
