ANNA MARIE IGNACIO (@annings), 30, full-time mom and artist


Instagram user since: November 2010


Why she took the plunge: “I initially started using Instagram to capture and share random moments of my daily life. My Instagram eventually turned into an outlet for creativity. I have always been passionate about art and design, but being a stay-at-home mom, I rarely have the time and chance to sit down and be creative. Styling and thinking up creative shots for my Instagram keeps my thirst for creating art nourished and alive.”


Gadget of choice: iPhone


What you’ll see on her feed: “My favorite things, in general. My artwork, paintings, crafts, and DIY projects. Corners of my home, yummy food, lots of coffee and a bit about my life as a wife and a mom.”


Favorite Instagram subjects: “My artwork, paintings, crafts, food, coffee and my little girl.”


Favorite filter: “Valencia. It tones down the colors and gives the image a slight vintage look.”


Favorite Instagram-related apps: “I rarely use other apps to edit my Instagrams, but when I do, I use iPhoto for cropping and alignments, and Aviary for color adjustments.”


Instagram video—yes or no? “Yes!”


Instagram pet peeves: People who steal other people’s photos from the Internet (especially from sites like We Heart It or Pinterest) and post them as their own. Spam comments.


Her five favorite Instagram users:


@leslieshewing: Her feed is like one big inspiration board! Lots of crafts, creative projects, flowers and pretty little things.

@etst: Beautiful and heartwarming photos of her lovely family, all captured in vintage hues.


@hellokris: She takes beautiful travel photos and creatively styled shots of her everyday life.


@sweethue: Creative food styling. The food always ends up looking too pretty to eat!
