i’m a huge fan of using keyboard shortcuts. they save me tons of time and help me stay hyper focused and productive while i work. i first started falling in love with shortcuts when i learned adobe illustrator. knowing them reduces my ‘clicking’ time and helps turn my design time into a seamless and productive process. i’m sure from someone looking on, it looks like a bit of a dance – watching my left hand work the keyboard while my right hand draws on a wacom, all the while keeping my eyes focused on the screen.

p.s. i also illustrated a keyboard shortcut guide for illustrator a while back, you can find it here!

that’s why when i realized there were keyboard shortcuts for wordpress (duh!), i was all in. i am huge fan of wordpress for blogging and using shortcuts has dramatically decreased the time it takes me to write and publish posts. my personal favorites are the ‘insert link’ and ‘save draft post’ shortcuts (pssst. CTL + K works to insert links in several other places on the web too, like gmail and mailchimp!).

it’s hard to learn them all at once, so i made us all an illustrated guide to wordpress’s shortcuts. you can print it and keep it near your workspace as a reminder until you learn!

to download & print: click here to download the PDF version. print using the high quality setting on heavy card stock (my favorite is epson premium presentation paper).

*please note! in order to use the keyboard shortcuts for the comments section, you’ll need to enable them in wordpress (it’s easy!). to turn this feature on, go to users > your profile and click “enable keyboard shortcuts for comment moderation.”

2015 stargazing printable

at the beginning of each year, i like to make a guide to all of the stargazing events for the upcoming year. i find it’s a simple way to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the amazing things happening around me. the universe, the stars and the galaxies have always amazed me- i’m in awe of how miraculous they are! i love to think about what God must have been thinking when he created it all as I gaze into the night sky. :)

printable christmas gift list (4)

ho ho ho! one of my favorite things to do each december is to make a christmas gift list (you can find the last two year’s here and here). i find great joy in giving gifts, and making a list of all of them helps me keep organized and focused. it’s also a huge help in keeping all the gift-giving straight. plus, it’s fun to check off those tiny boxes!

printable christmas gift list (2)

i begin each year by jotting down the ideas i have for everyone (in pencil). then, as i purchase (or make) each item, i put a check mark in the box labeled ‘bought’. then, i check them off one more time as i wrap them just to make sure everything arrives and gets put under the tree. i also usually jot down the price next to each item, so i can keep track of what i spend each year!

>> to download & print: click here (or on the image above) to download the pdf. print and have fun, santa!

printable christmas gift list (3)

and because there’s nothing worse than having a loved one find your list, i’ve added an optional ‘side 2′ to the printable. just turn your list over and print page 2 on the back. then, when you fold your list, you’ll have a ‘no peeking’ label on both sides! no more spoiled gifts. no more excuses. :)

i hope this helps keeps your holidays organized! love, bonnie

p.s. if you find your name on this list, don’t worry. it isn’t actually what i’m getting you! wahaha.

Posted by in roost tribe

goodies sent out to the roost tribe during july (12)

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 july. if you’re interested in receiving, it’s not too late to get it all! i’ll be sending out a recap on thursday, july 31st,  to the roost tribe with all of the content in it from july so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined during this month.

that means, that if you join before thursday, july 31st you’ll still get all of july’s content + august’s content as well- that’s two months for the price of one!

whew. got it? :)

this pattern collection is called summer flowering. it was inspired by garden rows and flowering ground coverage. :) 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

these mini tofu ‘crab’ cakes are creamy and seasoned to perfection. adding dulse seaweed (or nori seaweed) gives them a flavor from the sea. no one believe that they’re completely plant based!

i’ve fallen in love with photo overlays. they are such a great way to add a visual caption to your snapshots!

 

for years, i’ve only planted vegetables and herbs. there was a direct payoff for all my hard work- food! it wasn’t until about a year ago i realized how much i enjoyed having flowers in my yard. freshly cut flowers bring me so much joy as they brighten my home and fill it fragrance. arranging a bouquet of flowers is relaxing and peaceful. so, i’m excited to share with you that i have just planted my first ever flower garden!

i just love a good bunting banner, don’t you? i have one strung in the eve of my house, in my sewing room and by the artwork in our living room. now, i have one for bear’s room that says ‘hello bear’. (see below!) with the entire alphabet and 10 numbers to choose from, the possibilities are endless! make a banner for birthday parties, surprise parties, dinner gatherings, summer soirees and more. (also available here)

an inspirational desktip + iphone background. this quote has meant a lot to me for a long time. if ever i question my career, i always remember how passionate i am about what i do and how thankful i am for that. you are passionate about something for a reason. i encourage you to choose to follow your dreams!

adding textures to your illustrations can really warm them up and give them a nice hand crafted look. in this video, learn how to add subtle texture to your illustrations by using scatter brushes in adobe illustrator. (also available here.)

a set of ‘feathered fronds’ illustrations.

after watching this brilliant video, i got to thinking about labels and marketing and how they affect our lives. they are everywhere, yet there still needs to be more of them. they can be overwhelming, confusing and downright deceiving. this article introduces several labels that you should keep an eye out for – some to avoid and others to support.

this may be the best dish i’ve ever made. a most delicious spin on traditional mashed potatoes.

walk in the woods pattern collection inspired by living in the forest and planting pretty flowers. :)  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

this month’s inspiration is one i believe in wholeheartedly. i truly believe that we can all follow our dreams and be successful at what we love. all we have to do is get started! 

  master series with rachael taylor

rachael taylor’s brilliant article on taking risks and designing your way. this month’s article for the master series!

this video will teach you how to use the offset path and simplify tools in adobe illustrator. so fun!

i love to garden, so of course i wanted to do a little garden project! use this printable to make your own custom plant markers.
