new roost tribe website & shop!

happy monday, friends! i am really (really really) excited to debut the new website and shop for the roost tribe! i’ve been putting in some serious hours on getting it all set up, and can’t believe it’s finally ready to share. woohoo! here’s an outline of what you can expect with the new site:

overall: it’s a one stop shop for all things roost tribe. all the information is now conveniently located in one place (rather than scattered across going home to roost) and it’s easy to find all the information you need. it’s a place where members can log in for helpful links and info, and a place where non members can go for information and to shop.

shop: the new site is also a shop! non-members can now browse most all of the content that gets sent out to the roost tribe and purchase the elements either individually or in monthly bundles. if you’re a member, you’ll already be getting everything that gets listed in the shop but if you’ve joined sometime after the launch of the roost tribe you’ll be able to purchase previous materials here (members get 20% off any previous content they’re purchasing). being a member is a much better deal, but i know some people may not be interested in joining the community, so you can now browse and purchases onesies and twosies all you like, without joining the roost tribe!

what’s included: the roost tribe has recently gotten a bit of a face-lift, with a few added and updated monthly materials and more community involvement with a book club, facebook group and pinterest community board. you can see all the updated info on this page.

info: now conveniently located in once place, you can read roost tribe testimonials, check out the FAQ and get caught up on the terms and conditions.

member login: members also now have a shiny new login page where they’ll find their welcome packet, member bonuses (downloads, links, badges, coupon codes etc), links and helpful info.

and that’s about it! hop on over to the new roost tribe website & shop to check it out. hope you have fun clicking around, just let me know if you have any questions! xo, bonnie

a new home, a new look

new home inspiration board

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13

it’s always fun to start with a blank slate. with our recent move to a new home, i’ve been so excited to start deciding which direction i’ll be taking the new digs. this is just a little inspiration board i’ve been building over on pinterest, and hope to acquire a few of these lovelies over the next few months. my vision is to use a lot of neutral, solid colors (mainly white) and mix and match farmhouse simplicity with rustic cabin charm. can’t wait to start sharing some tidbits with you! for now though, i’m off to work on all these boxes..

september desktop calendar by going home to roost

another month has come and gone, which means it’s time for another desktop calendar! i have so much fun making these each month, and i hope you enjoy them as well. :) to me, september always means that summer is beginning to wind down and that autumn is just around the corner. brisk(er) mornings and hazy evenings bring just enough chill for a light sweater. ahhh.

patterns, graphics and social buttons

i woke up this morning to a very exciting newsletter in my inbox, announcing august empress’ new shop for seamless repeating patterns, graphics and social buttons! for those of you who don’t know, jo klima is one of the most talented gals i know (though i may be biased, she designed going home to roost!). her patterns and graphics are stunningly beautiful with watercolor textures and soft, geometric details. each with a handcrafted touch combined with feminine colors brings both depth and light to each design- all of which i’ve fallen in love with. visit her shop here!

12 goals for 2012

January 3, 2012

Posted by in lifestyle

new thoughts for the new year. for me, january marks a time for reflection and a time for planning. a renewing of my mind always seems to occur as i find myself thankful for the past and eager for the future.

i just finished reflecting on my goals for 2011 and am happy to say that i have accomplished most of them, and am working still on a few of them. below you’ll find my thoughts and goals for this year!

let it go no. 1

12 thoughts and goals for 2012:

1) start a garden at our new place.

2) keep focused on communication with all of my friends and family across the states.

3) get my dad out to california.

4) start soaking my own beans and sprouting my own sprouts.

5) continue to educate myself on the subjects that are near to my heart (food, health and creative endeavors).

6) continue to put God first. in my time, my day, our finances, and in every way.

7) get back into my yoga routine.

8) submit a design portfolio to the fabric company of my dreams.

9) start saving above our norm, in efforts to prepare for a home and family in the coming years.

10) practice presence. life flies by to quickly.

11) visit bend, the grand canyon, lake tahoe and santa cruz.

12) nourish my creativity.

your turn! won’t you share one of your goals for the new year with us?

{stork in blue}

the time has finally come!  many of you know that a new design for going home to roost has been in the works, and the time to share it with you is almost here!  i’ve been working with the spectacular jo from the darling tree and what she’s created has exceeded even my highest expectation!  i think you all will really love it.  it will be a brand new theme as well as a brand new format which is not only more visually appealing, but much more easily navigable as well.

the new theme will be going live this monday! the site may be down a bit over the weekend, and maybe a little on monday as well, but bare with us, we’ll try to avoid it!  also, i’ll be posting updates on the status of the new design on twitter, if you would like to follow the progression there.

next time i see you, we’ll be moved into a new home!

xox, bonnie
