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.



What to write?  That is the question.  I have no idea what to write to you, %contact.first_name%, today.  What would you like to hear about?  I would love to hear from you.  Please reply to this email to let me know.  Are you into Printables or Digital Planners or both?  Is there a specific subject you would like to hear about?

I made progress yesterday.  I still have a long way to go but I AM getting there.  At least I understand the steps I need to take to get the products listed. Next after that, I will have to start creating the products for the affiliates to promote for me.  That will be an adventure as I have never done that before.  If you are working on aMember for your site, I can tell you that they have excellent support.  When I run into a problem, they help me to solve the problem and when I really don’t understand the fix, they did it for me.  This allows me to continue working on my site with very little interruption

Our dogs are so funny.  Last night, my daughter, Angel, asked her dog, Sammi, if she wanted to come to bed with her as it was going to be in the 30s.  Sammi ignored her so my daughter went to sleep.  Not even 10 minutes later, after my daughter had already fallen into a deep sleep, Sammi decided that she wanted under the covers with Angel.  LOL  Wasn’t happening.  So Sammi went down to to bottom of the bed and laid down by Angel’s feet shivering.  I laughed and told her she had lost her chance.

Oh, so many new listings in the new products section today.  We have 2 sales and a new product.  There were a few others but I decided that these three were enough for this newsletter.  I need to trim it down.  LOL  It is getting quite long.

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

There are more seamless patterns and graphics available on Creative Fabrica for free.  Just search for St Patrick Freebie, Easter Freebie, etc. and you will get all of them.  If you want something else, just type in the search term with Freebie and you will see what is available for free without a subscription.

I have a subscription to Creative Fabrica and can download as many of the graphics on their site free.  I get an idea, I run to Creative Fabrica to see if I can find graphics to make my new creations.  It is so great.  You might want to get a subscription if you need lots of graphics.


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.

If you need to talk or get some help of some sort, I am here and will help you in any way that I can. If it is something I don’t know yet, I will refer you to someone I know who does have that information. We are all here to help each other to achieve success.

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