january roost tribe recap

January 31, 2014

Posted by in roost tribe

hi friends! today i’m excited to share this month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what january brought to the roost tribe. the good news is, it’s not too late to get all of january’s content! i’ll be sending out a january recap on tuesday, february 4th to the roost tribe with all of the content in it from january 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, february 4th you’ll still get all of january’s content + february’s content as well- that’s two months for the price of one!

in this adobe illustrator tutorial, i share with you how i most often use the trim and clipping mask tools, and what makes them different.

this pattern collection is called soul whispers. the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to quite down and listen to the whispers of your soul. what does it long for? mine longs to blossom and shine, which has been the inspiration for this collection. use them for digital scrap booking, as website backgrounds or print them for scrapbooking, gift wrapping and more!

a little inspiration from molly jacques for this month’s roost tribe book club read.

the most delicious root and winter vegetable casserole recipe.

an article from the most amazing nancy chalmers – the Sexy Super Natural Health Coach.

2014 goals printable worksheet.

set of clip art illustrations called spring anytime. because even though it’s january, my heart is in spring.


a set of inspirational desktop and smartphone backgrounds.

simple living article on how to help wildlife survive the winter (photo by soul centered photo art)

a list of favorite & useful links and resources from around the web.

plus more! tribe members also participated in this month’s book club reading, roost tribe challenge and more. being a member is tons of fun and we would love to have you join the family!

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!

fiber farm

some of you may know, i have a sweet spot for farms. when i found juniper moon fiber farm (via gifted magazine) i was immediately drawn in- this is the farm of farms! not only do they have the most adorable animals (am i right?), but they offer so many wonderful opportunities!

you can join their yarn csa, shop their online store, browse all of their adorable knitting patterns, watch their lamb cam (come on, people- so cute!), even vacation there with a good ol’ farm stay. if you’re a fiber lover (and even if you’re not) i think you’ll enjoy perusing the pages of juniper moon farm, you might like it so much that you want to plan a visit!
