plant these save bees

i’m just beginning to make plans for a little square foot garden this year, and will definitely be taking the honey bees into consideration! plant these to help save the honey bees by hannah rosengren includes 7 herbs, 7 perennials and 7 annuals that attract bees. spread the word and help save the bees!

what will you be planting this year?

p.s. and my obsession with all things sweet as honey continues. :)

some things take time

January 27, 2014

some things take time

i’ve had my eyes on this photograph by salva lópez for a while now. i love the black and white photo,  off-white paper and gold stamped typography, not to mention the quote itself.

some things just take time, you know? it’s easy for me to get discouraged when dreams and goals are moving slowly, but most good things take a lot of hard work and time. when i’m feeling overwhelmed with how long something is taking, i ususally decide to just do one small thing each day in the direction of my dream or goal. then, progress is made bit by bit and things seem to start happening quicker.

my one thing today is to cut up some bundles of sweet as honey to send out to makers and sewers of all sorts.

what is your one thing today?

printic: the app that sends photos (5)

last week, i discovered printic and was immediately enthralled. an app that sends photos to anyone, anytime? yes! you see, i really appreciate this digital world where we can take photos anytime and browse through them on our devices, but sometimes i miss good ol’ hard copy photographs. i miss being able to hold them in my hands, send them in the mail and pin them on my inspiration boards. printic brings together both the digital and tangible worlds by letting us order photographs right from our phone, sending them to anyone in the world.

printic: the app that sends photos (3)

each photograph only costs 99 cents, which includes shipping. they also get delivered within 3 business days! one way in which i hope to use this app is to send snapshots to our grandparents and long distance friends. a lot of times, i feel as though our grandparents are missing out on our life since they aren’t seeing the photos we post around the web, so i think sending them the occasional photo through printic would be really special!

printic: the app that sends photos (4)

head on over to printic to download the app. first time users get 50% off (hence my large pile of photographs)!

gift the roost tribe!

gift the roost tribe!

hey guys! if you’ve been enjoying the roost tribe or know someone who would, you might be looking for a way to share it with them. to help, i’ve created a way for you to give anyone a membership to the roost tribe! it would be a great gift for a blogger, crafter, seller or creative of any type (or even yourself!).

there are two ways to give the membership:

1) purchase a 6 month membership to the roost tribe for $30
2) purchase a 1 year membership to the roost tribe for $60

gift the roost tribe

included in each packet will be a personalized membership certificate showing everything that’s included, an 8×10 bonnie christine bouquet print and a ‘how to get started’ kit. 6 month memberships will get the packet in a neat pdf presentation that’s ready to print and give. 1 year memberships will have the choice of either receiving the packet via ready-to-print pdf OR opt to have it mailed to you on premium presentation paper (free shipping is included!). if you choose to get a kit mailed to you, be sure to order by december 15th for delivery by christmas.

give the gift of inspiration for months to come, it truly is the gift that keeps on giving!







after you complete your purchase through paypal via the links above, i will get in touch with you via your paypal e-mail address. included in this e-mail will be an easy form for you to fill out sharing with me your information, preferences and the recipient’s information. in order to not spoil any surprises, all of the recipients roost tribe material will start on january 1st, 2013. just let me know if you have any questions!

last week, i got the most delightful e-mail from mark and zoe, affectionately known as mr. & mrs. YOKE, who illustrate and hand print on the bonnie banks of the river tay in scotland. i immediately loved their quirky illustrations and brightly colored prints. i think they give a breath of fresh air and big sense of FUN to the art of printmaking. check out their world here!

i just can’t help but feel better after reading jen renninger’s print series, words to live by. isn’t it wonderful when you find art that uplifts and inspires? today, take some of jen’s advice and have hope, sing outloud, make believe or do something good (or, do all four!).

pink bathtub designs

i met noelle griskey a very long time ago, and feel like she’s been a part of going home to roost since the get-go! i have loved watching pink bathtub designs grow and am always anxious to see what she’ll come out with next. noelle hand prints each card herself using hand carved blocks which give them a rustic-whimsy kind of feel that i just love. visit her shop to see more!
