roost tribe (1)

hi friends! today i’m excited to share this month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what november brought to the roost tribe. the good news is, it’s not too late to get all of november’s content! i’ll be sending out a november recap on wednesday, december 4th to the roost tribe with all of the content in it from november so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined during this month.

that means, that if you join before wednesday,december 4th you’ll still get all of november’s content + december’s content as well- that’s two months for the price of one!

december roost tribe recap (1)

hey guys! today i’m sharing last month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what december brought to the tribe. i also wanted to let you know that it’s not too late to get in on the goods! i’ll be sending out a newsletter recap on january 6th with all of the content in it so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined.

that means, that if you join before january 6th you’ll still get all of this yummy content plus january’s too!

working with color in illustrator is one of my most favorite things to do. with this video tutorial, i’ll be sharing with you how to pull colors from an image, make a color palette, how to open custom color palettes and how to make them persistent.

i love to doll up my photos with pretty frames. putting a frame around a photo can really make it look special and take it to the next level! tribe members receive these photo frames in both png (with transparent background) and an editable pdf format so they can change the shape, size and colors using illustrator or photoshop if they wish. using frames is a great way to spice up your blog posts or family photos!

this quick print calendar won’t look like it only took you minutes to make (i promise!). you can either print my version or download the template and make your own (opening in photoshop or illustrator to edit). they are designed to fit instagram photos, but any photo cropped to a square will work.

*want a great gift idea? find your recipient on instagram (just go to instagram.com/’recipient’s instagram name’, like this: http://instagram.com/goinghometoroost) download a few photos and make a calendar for them using their very own instagram photos. they’ll be so surprised!

grab this recipe for my most favorite vegan homemade cinnamon rolls!

after several requests for a tutorial on how i made the light twinkles in this post, here is a quick (and easy) video on how i make animated gifs- this technique is great for making ads as well! (illustrator or photoshop NOT required!) december roost tribe recap (3)    december roost tribe recap (6)

though these last two elements are geared more for the holidays, they could still come in handy. why not just save them for next year?

and that’s not even all! tribe members also received a list of favorite links and resources and gift guide with exclusive coupons and deals. being a member is tons of fun and we would love to have you join the family!
