If you are new to my newsletter, I would like to welcome you. If you are wondering why you are receiving this newsletter, you signed up for one of the bundles/giveaways or from my website.

I will try not to spam you, although, I will be sending you links to things that I think will help your business grow. I want to see you succeed. If you do not want to receive emails from me, I will be sad to see you go, but just unsubscribe here or the link at the bottom of this newsletter. You will always be welcome to come back if you decide you really want to hear from me.

If you missed any of my newsletters, you can find back issues on my website. It will have all the newsletters in publication order.



I have a hard time trying to think of what to write to you, %contact.first_name%.  I would really love you would send me a message letting me know what you would like to see in my newsletters.

I did it again!  I forgot to change the subject yesterday.  The email you got yesterday looked like it was a duplicate of the day before but nope, it was its own newsletter.  I will get the hang of writing a newsletter one of these days.  

Well, I worked on my website yesterday.  I had a shopping cart with a couple of products on it. I was so excited.  I showed it to my daughter. And then, all of a sudden the products weren’t showing up anymore.  Oh no!  What did I do to my aMember?  So I spent a lot of frustrating time going back trying to figure out what I had done yesterday to break my shopping cart.  I had changed my email address on my aMember.  No, that wasn’t it.  So I started trial and error.  Finally about 4 or 5 hours later, I had my shopping cart back.  Whew!  Now, I need to test it to make sure it works.  Once I am sure it works, I will start loading some of my products in it.  Hopefully, I will be able to open my store within the next month.

Well, if nothing else, I am proving I am human with all of these mistakes I make.  Thankfully I have worked with computers for a while and know how to go back and do the trial and error thing to fix whatever is wrong.

When I look for products to tell you about.  I keep in mind that most of you might be like me and running your business on a shoestring.  I also try not to show you the same products that everyone else is.  Unfortunately, since I am in the same pond as everyone else, there will be duplication in what I am showing you.  I will do my best to give you the best of the best and not just throw products at you.  I am showing you products that I myself would be interested in.  I even purchase them as I have the funds for them.  I do bookmark them to purchase at a later date.  Like you, I prioritize the products that I buy.  Oh, NO!  Some people will say that I phrased that wrong but I believe in telling like it is.  I want to be me with you always.

Oh, yes, for Affinity Publisher lovers, tomorrow I will be telling you about a new course that Faith is putting out about how to create digital papers, how to customize some she is giving you, how to use them as backgrounds, plus so much more.

OK, that it it for today.  Hope ya’ll are having a wonderful day out there.

What are you working on? Below, you will find some freebies that you can use to create your products. There are seamless patterns for you to use as covers for your products. Remember, always modify the images so that they are different from what someone else might create with the same pattern. Make your cover stand out and let people know you are different.

Mix and match the coloring pages, color by number, dot to dot, and word search to create your own coloring book. Add something to them to make them your own so you won’t be creating the same coloring book as everyone else.

Create a mug or greeting cards to put in your store. You might create these to give to special people in your life. See below in MISCELLANEOUS to find the links to the templates for you.

I want you to keep on working and growing your business. Let me know your accomplishments and what you are working on.

Hope you are having a wonderful, productive day.  Get lots of products created or training done.
