august's roost tribe recap. join today!

hi everyone! i’m here to share this month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what roost tribe members received during the month of august. if you’re interested in receiving, it’s not too late to get it all! i’ll be sending out a recap on tuesday, september 2nd,  to the roost tribe with all of the content in it from august so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined during this month.

that means, that if you join before tuesday, september 2nd you’ll still get all of august’s content + september’s content as well- that’s two months for the price of one!

whew. got it? :)

i am SO happy to share this little trick. i’ve been looking for a way to ‘lock’ colors while using the recolor artwork tool in adobe illustrator for years, when FINALLY- i figured it out! this has made recoloring my patterns and artwork so much more efficient.

this pattern collection is called feathered florals. :) you can print them, frame them, make cards from them, use them on your blog, social media sites, use them as wrapping paper, etc! i

lately, i’ve fallen i love with making greeting cards. they are such a simple and beautiful way to express your love, gratitude or congratulations to friends and family. and, i always feel that there’s something a little extra special about receiving a card someone has printed themselves!
