My Xmas Story: Why I’m banned from cooking turkeys + 3 new products available at launch pricing or free!

by | Dec 25, 2023 | Uncategorized

Hi Reader,

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

To those that celebrate, how are the festivities going? Are you a) in the midst of the celebrations still? b) finished and feeling like a stuffed turkey? or c) laying low this season?

This year, we went with Option C and opted to go to a restaurant for Christmas dinner. We used to host holiday dinners at this time of year as well as Easter and Thanksgiving. I didn’t mind hosting, although to be fair, I don’t really cook other than to baste a ham.

I’d say I’m a decent cook but it’s not something I love to do. In fact I hate it. I’ve always been like this.

One time in my twenties, I decided I was going to cook a turkey in the microwave (insert facepalm here). To be fair, at that age, I thought the best use for my oven was to store dirty dishes. 🤣

The only issue with cooking a turkey in the microwave (other than the very idea of that in and of itself) was that I didn’t know if a turkey would actually fit.

Did I want to go all the way to a grocery store across Hell’s half acre in a place I seldom frequented (in a super not convenient location) and take a chance? What if it didn’t fit and I had to haul it all the way back and return it?

During this inner debate, my big, very plump tabby cat strolled across the living room floor and stood there looking at me. To give you some perspective…he weighed apx. 25 pounds – which was approximately the exact weight of the turkey I needed to buy.

Soooo…you can see where this is kinda going right?

I had to do it.

Yep. I put him in there. Just to see if he would fit, seeing as he was the exact size of a good sized turkey.

Well obviously I didn’t close the door or anything crazy like that. But I did check to see if he would be able to fit.

Also, it wasn’t like he needed to be crammed in either. Turns out he fit no problem and there was lots of room to spare. He was super curious to check out the space so it wasn’t traumatic for him. He was always a wildly curious cat who was always ready for adventure.

Heck, if there was some sort of comfy pillow, he would have curled up inside and made it his home. Thankfully this never happened seeing the microwave was sitting on top of my refrigerator and out of the way (and closed) for curious cats.

So long story short. I bought that frozen turkey and it fit perfectly in the microwave. I have no recollection of whether or not it was gross but I’m assuming it was. However, I don’t think I got around to cleaning the microwave after putting my cat inside.

So that is why, until this day, I’m still not allowed to cook a turkey in my household. 😆

NEW PRODUCT: CHRISTMAS COOKIE CATS

If you didn’t already know this about me, three of my favorite things are cats, cookies and Christmas-time.

If you feel the same, check out my brand new Christmas Cookie Cats Collection: Volume 1 with MRR rights which I’m releasing today to celebrate Christmas!

This Clip Art collection comes with 12 pieces of individually pre-cropped stickers which will add a fun, festive spin and a touch of whimsy. Preview of all the individual thumbnails below.

These will retail for $17 but today, I’m launching this collection for a short time where you can pay what you wish (minimum $5.) Also, instead of commercial usage, I’m offering these to you as a reader only special and throwing in MRR usage – meaning you can use them as is. You do NOT have to make any changes.

You just can’t sell the graphics as is – ie: as clip art – but you can turn them into pre-cropped stickers, use them inside your planners, printables, etc.

At checkout, you’ll also have the option to add Volume 2 to your cart for only $5. (Also with MRR usage which is only available as a reader-only special.) Or you can grab them on their own at another time while it’s at launch pricing ($7) but only for a short stint so grab these cuties while you can.

Thumbnails below of each individually cropped image.

And don’t forget, if you missed my gift from my last email, you only have a day or so to grab my free 8.5 x 11″ illustrated watercolor image: “Snowy Day.” Just click on the photo below to go straight to the download page. No opt in required.

If you love this picture, it’s part of my Winter Joy Collection which I’m offering for a very short time for whatever you’d like to pay. (But the price will go up each day.) This 18 piece, 8.5 x 11 paper pack consists of of stunning photos of winter imagery which I turned into illustrative art. None of these images were made with an A.I. art generator. You can check out the individual thumbnails below. This offer expires ends when my next newsletter comes out.

I’m going to give you my version of Alessandro’s Christmas Deals offer in the form of a very special bonus! Consider it “Lara’s Christmas Deals Bonus 2023.”
🤣

brand new 16 piece Christmas Angels collection (8 x 10.)
This is already waiting for you in your Warrior+ dashboard immediately upon purchase.

If you purchase OTO 1: you’ll immediately receive my gorgeous 80 piece collection of Christmas HoliYay papers. That’s four sets of 20 festive papers that are a combination of sparkly glitz and warm woody vibes.

If you purchase any of the upsells, for every $25 you spend, choose a deluxe bonus from my bonus page. If you spend over $49, you can change that to a deluxe bonus and grab a second deluxe bonus for every $49 after that. Remember, my bonuses do not have an expiry date and I will be updating that page soon.

– Welcome Sequence templates
– 3 newsletter templates
– 52 subject lines

Being able to create landing pages, and instant products without a website that you can sell right away for absolutely free are HUGE benefits. Plus when it comes to writing newsletters, you can instantly resize photos and easily change buttons and colors.

I used the free plan for about eight months before upgrading to the Creator Plan so I could add automated sequences but you definitely don’t need that to start.

I’ve been in Liz’s group for the last two years and you won’t find a more reasonable priced membership with such hands on training and support.

PS. Rumor has it that Liz is gonna skyrocket to mega-stardom in early 2024 so you may want to join her membership just to say you were there when… Just sayin’.

PARTY TIME PACK

Katherine’s newest kit has arrived in the Limitless Design Kits Monthly Membership.

This month’s theme is a versatile Party Time Design Kit! Whether you’re designing invitations for a birthday bash, creating eye-catching banners for a special event, profitable print-on-demand group products, or just want to add a pop of party energy to your printables, this design kit has you covered.

With all the latest concerns over copyright, usage rights, and outsourcing art from questionable sources, a few members have asked if she makes the graphics in her kits. The answer is YES, she personally illustrates/draws/paints the graphics.

All of her personal hand-drawn or painted illustrations and high-resolution elements can be used to create PLR, digital products, physical products, and TEMPLATES (to name a few) which is MUCH MORE than any typical commercial use license.

Along with the individual elements, she’s also included a few different types of graphics to help you create scenes.

These design kits are only available for one month inside the membership so you have until the 14th to pick these up. Katherine will then be offering them for sale at the current regular price of $97.

You’ll automatically receive $482 worth of bonuses that come with MRR rights, meaning you can turn these kits around and not only sell them commercially, but as PLR without restrictions!

MRR or master resell rights means you can sell these items commercially to others who can also sell them commercially. Normally, with PLR, you can sell them to others for personal use only.

This means you can use these products to create your very own PLR. It’s also perfect if you’ve been wanting to get into a bundle but don’t have a creative bone in your body and aren’t sure what you would be able to offer with PLR rights – now you’ll be able to thanks to Katherine’s gorgeous resources.

Best of all, you can use these elements without fear of infringing on someone’s license, which is much more generous than a standard commercial use license, and use them for to create PLR digital products, physical products, and templates (to name a few)
– and yes, even stickers!

Check out everything you get on the sales page. This kit will be available at the discounted price of $27 until January 14th.

AFFINITY TRAINING SALE*
*Note: There was an issue with some of the links in my Dec 5th newsletter where this post was first offered so don’t use those prior links if you were interested in purchasing and receiving a bonus. The ones below are now fixed.

Due to needing to find a better work/life balance, Catherine at Printables Academy (formerly Content Accelerators) is having a Course Retirement Sale on all her excellent courses.

If you’ve ever wanted to make the break from Adobe’s high monthly fees, grab these courses while you can because they will not be available after this month.

Catherine is a college teacher by day which makes total sense as she is highly lauded for her excellent Affinity training. I can’t think of anyone who has better training on Affinity, and her teaching style is laid back and easy to understand.

All her courses are well designed to take you from beginner to intermediate skills, step by step. She blends learning different aspects of the software with creating practical projects so you can learn by doing. Since all of her courses are geared towards printable and low content book creators, she focuses on the features of Affinity most useful to her students.

Most of these courses were originally released between 2020-22 and were filmed in Affinity V1. If you have Affinity V2, there may be a few differences in the software but Catherine is keeping her student Facebook Group open if you need help.

Right now, she’s offering 65% off any and all of her courses until 12/29. You can also purchase access to every single one of her courses for a one time fee. Discounts apply to the all-access option as well.

You can view all her courses by clicking the button below but some notables that stood out:

Affinity Content Creators 4-Course Bundle: This includes 4 amazing Affinity courses for only $38.15 (reg. $109) which you can also purchase separately.

Catherine is also offering a one-time All Access Option, which is a STEAL as it offers access to ALL her courses! Regularly $147, you can grab this now for $51.45 using code: RETIRE23. (Note, it says this is a membership but you will only be charged once and it will not be recurring.)

You also don’t have to worry about losing access to your courses as her site isn’t going anywhere and she’ll be continue to create ​blog posts​ and ​YouTube tutorials when she has time.

Use coupon code: RETIRE23 to take 65% off on al her products until December 29th

Check out all the courses on her page and make sure you take advantage while you can as you will no longer be able to purchase these products after that date.

BONUS – If you purchase Catherine’s All Access Option, choose two deluxe bonuses from my bonus page. If you prefer to pick whatever you like, for every $25 you spend after coupons are applied and before taxes, you can choose a regular bonus If you spend over $49, you can change that to a deluxe bonus and grab additional deluxe bonus for every $50 after that.

BONUS UPDATE:

Update regarding bonuses

I’ve been having a few issues lately around receiving commissions so if you want to ensure that you buy through my links and receive your bonuses, please make sure to make your purchases on a desktop.

Apple does not allow for link tracking and there is a good chance that I will not get credited for the sale. It’s also a good policy to click my link and purchase right away because if you decide to do so later, and you’re browsing other sites, or checking out other emails, you may accidentally click on someone else’s offer unknowingly so they’ll get credit for a sale and if you don’t know who that person is, they might not have a bonus for you.

For Thrivecart purchases: Make sure you see my name laramai at the bottom of the checkout page under affiliate as shown in the photo below. As there are many templates used in Thrivecart, the field might look different than the photo below but the name will appear somewhere at the very bottom of the page underneath the cart.

For Warrior+ purchases: Make sure you see my name “laramai” at the bottom of the checkout page where it says powered by Warrior Plus

GET ON THE WAITLIST

If you’re interested in learning how I use totally free and/or cheap tools to create AI generated images like the ones you see in the book above as well as my the bonuses you’ve seen lately as well as my newsletter banner photos, click here or the photo above. (Note: clicking this link won’t take you anywhere. It just records your interest so I can make sure to notify you if and when this course becomes available – and offer it to you at the lowest price.)

Don’t forget I’m still taking a poll to find out if there is interest in learning about how I created my initial tripwire landing page using entirely free tools. Click here if you want to learn more about that training.
