The Roost Tribe

I found Bonnie Forkners blog Going Home to Roost in July. The creative DIY-ideas, beautiful photos and tasty vegetarian recipes kept me going back to her blog - which according to Bonnies own words is about:

 " everything handmade and anything homegrown.
i love to roost, and to me that means
nesting in my home and doing the things that i love.
i’m always seeking the next creative endeavor,
inspiring artists and beautiful material
- and my purpose here is
to share those with you!"

I felt like having found a kindred spirit that likes the same things as I do, so I started to follow Going Home to Roost :)

This fall Bonnie announced that she's going to start a Roost "Family" Tribe ... That was ecxiting news! The further I read about the membership, the more interested I became. I could read that The Roost Tribe members receive every month the following:

anything else i feel like sending over. things i’ve been inspired to share with you like freebies or downloads, or you may just get a little something in the mail from time to time!"

... I found all of the above sounding great but I was wondering how costly an affair a Roost Tribe membership would actually be?
- I was gladly surprised when I found out that all the above costs only 5 USdollars a month!
So I signed up at once and was  eagerly looking forward to the Roost Tribe -release in September.

Now I almost can't wait until it's Friday, when I receice a weekly Roost Tribe newsletter!I especially look forward of receiving the patterns designed by Bonnie. 


Cards crafted with the beautiful patterns from the Roost Tribe

I enjoy crafting - making creative things is relaxing and you always get something nice out it. For me the creative input from the Roost Tribe is the thing that I love most. Getting the new patterns every now and then inspires me to do something with them ... like cards and small gift boxes :)

Bonnies monthly designs for iPhone and a matching desktop calender are inspiring, as well as the recipes and the links (like the video instruction about food styling we received this month among other useful links).

There's only 3 days to go until it's Friday
... I wonder what the Roost Tribe Newsletter contains this time?
