**UPDATE: psst.. this workbook, video and ebook are now included in the welcome packet when you sign up for the roost tribe!

today i am so excited to share with you a project that has been long in the works. we all know that it’s important to accurately describe the items we sell online, but did you know that it’s also important to tell a story through your product descriptions? it engages your customers, draws them in and helps them connect with both you and your product. here to help us write killer product descriptions that support our brand story is brittany campbell.

if you happen to recall the interview i did with etsy a while back on how to pitch to bloggers, you might remember that i talked a lot about how much i admired brittany campbell’s ability to write amazing product descriptions for her shop, the home ground.

i”m so happy that brittany agreed to come share with us about how to write amazing product descriptions through this engaging interview, printable and thought provoking workbook. to begin, check out the interview above (it’s about 25 minutes) to get an in depth look at why it’s important to engage with your customers, how to tell a story through your products and how to go about getting started.

happy easter!

happy easter!

happy easter, folks!

i’m taking a teeny blog break to celebrate easter and heading down south to get away with david this weekend! i hope each of you have a family-filled weekend full of love, laughter and easter eggs.

here’s a snippet from my favorite online/iphone bible reader, you version:

The earth shook with the news. He is not here; He is risen! And in that moment, joy replaced despair, hope pushed past fear, and life conquered death, not just that day, but for eternity. We celebrate the resurrection of Christ for what it meant then and what it means for us every day- a sacrifice that brings forgiveness, renewal, and peace to any of us who put our faith in Jesus.

i’ll be reading the story of easter this weekend and hope that we all might experience a rebirth and renewal that courses through our hearts and minds, spilling over into our lives and our communities throughout the year!

happy weekend, friends! love, bonnie

image: love by a creative mint

valentine’s day reds.

threads of love and a morning dove.
stitches of joy and my favorite boy.
oh how i love a needle and thread,
in shades of pink, orange and red.
vintage spools make a nice combination,
the perfect setting for a valentine’s creation!

- by yours truly. (hehe!) :)

a color story- winter browns

January 18, 2012

winter browns

winter browns.

crunching leaves and frosty noses,
brisk mornings and frozen hoses.
lots of fires with warming flames,
hazy skies and indoor games.
slippery footing and falling snow,
and lots of cuddling with my beau.

- by yours truly. :)

these are just a few of the things that winter browns mean to me. what do they mean to you?

oh, how wonderful it is to live near a seaside town where the streets are lined with garden daisies and you can gaze up at the marshmallow clouds. living in our vintage summer, we dream together under the beach umbrella, sharing a single sorbet. is obvious to me what it is… it’s love.
