goodies sent to the roost tribe (7)

i am SO happy to share this little trick. i’ve been looking for a way to ‘lock’ colors while using the recolor artwork tool in adobe illustrator for years, when FINALLY- i figured it out! this has made recoloring my patterns and artwork so much more efficient.

goodies sent to the roost tribe (1)

this pattern collection is called feathered florals. :) 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

i love this quote from old english co. sometimes the hardest part is just starting, but you should always know: amazing things WILL happen!

one of my favorite meals this summer has been fresh paninis on the grill. they are light and refreshing and bursting with flavor!

this set of illustrations was inspired by a recent walk i took in the forest. i loved taking pictures of the moss, ferns, buds and leaves!

lately, i’ve fallen i love with making greeting cards. they are such a simple and beautiful way to express your love, gratitude or congratulations to friends and family. and, i always feel that there’s something a little extra special about receiving a card someone has printed themselves!

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.)

in addition to being a master party planner, erin is also the founder of the indie craft parade and the maker’s summit. i’ve attended both and can personally attest to how incredible these events are! if you’re a maker, attending these two events will be the highlight of your year.

the indie craft parade is a celebration of handmade art and will take place september 12th-14th in greenville, south carolina. it’s held in the most beautiful historic mill and will be featuring 80 of the most talented makers from all over the south.>

the maker’s summit is a one-day business conference for the art, craft, and design world. during the conference, you’ll learn how to start or grow your business alongside fellow creatives and hear practical advice from industry leaders and peers during keynotes, workshops, panel discussions and one-on-one time with experts. i was delighted to attend this year and it was absolutely sensational.

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.
