summer gallery advertising

hello lovelies! it’s time for the summer gallery advertising opportunity! if you glance over in the right hand sidebar, you’ll see a special place with the summer gallery emblem in it. below it, i’ll be opening up 10 large spots for anyone who would like to join the gallery to promote their shop, blog or website for the summer buying season!

i’m also excited to begin ‘a day in the life’ creative series. i always think it’s so inspiring to hear about how other creatives structure their day, so by participating in the summer gallery, you’ll have the unique opportunity to share with us how you plan your day, as well as your favorite tip on staying productive.

why only 10 spots? i’ve reduced the number of spots available in the summer gallery this season to give those of you who participate better placement on the website. with fewer ads to clutter the space, you’ll get more ‘bang for your buck’ in this prime real estate area.

these spots will go on a first come first serve basis and are available to book for july, august and september only. offer is not valid with any other deals. just e-mail me if you’re interested!

*roost tribe members get 20% off the original pricing, making this deal even sweeter!

** to see all of going home to roost’s advertising options, click here.

made with studio | going home to roost (1)

hi friends! are you familiar with the made with studio app? if not, i want to introduce you to it today! i grabbed a few of my favorite instagram photos and have had so much fun adding type and texture to them.

the studio app makes it quick and easy to add beautiful design and layers to your photographs, then share them to all your social media outlets in the touch of a button. best of all, it’s free! if you like, you can follow me by searching for ‘goinghometoroost‘. i’ll meet you there!
