The 13th day of Christmas? Superstitions and Motivations 😆

by | Jan 6, 2024 | Uncategorized

Hello Reader,

Yesterday I did something I’ve never done before which was take down my tree before the holiday break ended.

Usually I leave it up until closer to the end of the month (and sometimes longer if my husband doesn’t squawk too much) but one of my lovely readers wrote to tell me that the tree, decorations and cards must come down on twelfth night or you’ll have bad luck for the rest of the year.

If there’s one thing about me which you may not know is that I’m more than a little bit superstitious and will always go out of my way to avoid bad luck if at all possible.

However, the details were a little fuzzy about which day the 12th day of Christmas falls under. The Church of England goes by January 5th while others declare it’s the 6th. And if you’re Roman Catholic, you can keep your tree up until February 2nd.

It’s also bad luck to take your tree down too early so there’s some food for thought for the early birds who have their tree gone by December 26th.

If you still haven’t taken down your tree, well, depending on where you are in the world and what your beliefs are, there’s still time to take it down, or leave it up.

We compromised and took all the decorations down and I left my husband to put the tree away today.

The reason the decorations and tree needs to be taken down is that in days of old, it was believed that tree spirits lived in the decorations used to deck the halls, like holly and ivy. Failing to release the tree back to the wild was believed to bring bad luck. However, since we have an artificial tree, I don’t think there’s any need to worry about angering the tree spirits.

At the very least, hubby is happy that the tree won’t be up until next month and I’m feeling proud of myself for being so industrious – regardless of where I received my motivation from. 😆

​On Tuesday, January 9, Clàudia Orengo will be doing a live training on how to design seamless patterns with Canva. The replay will be available for 24 hours and then it will move into her membership The Passive Income Growth Academy

And even better, after you sign up for the free training, you can join her membership for $5 for the first month.

If you’ve never heard of PIGA or Clàudia, she’s a full-time graphic designer and artist from Barcelona who loves creating colorful watercolor graphics and vector illustrations for repeat pattern backgrounds.

I’ve been in her membership for a few months now and getting first-hand access to ask her direct questions and learn how to become a full time designer is a huge plus. Other perks include accountability and community calls where you get things done together and can get support anytime you need it.


How long?

The training is meant to last 60 minutes or less.

What will you learn?

  • Design a pattern tile that repeats seamlessly using the free version of Canva.
  • Understand the foundations of surface pattern design.
  • Export the pattern to use as background, print on fabric, design new products or even sell it!

What to expect?

Be ready to learn some theory and graphic design foundations but also have a computer handy to implement during the live workshop. There will be allocated time to take action during the training.

By coming live you’ll be able to ask questions! Nobody will be able to hear or see you, so PJs and messy hair is welcome!

What are seamless patterns?

A seamless pattern is an image that, if you repeat vertically and/or horizontally, matches perfectly creating an endless repeat where you are not able to identify the original tile or seam. They are usually created from individual illustrations, combined with a background like the ones pictured below.

What can you do with those patterns?

You can use them as background for books, digital presentations, any digital products, as part of your branding, turn them into physical products like fabric, wallpaper or stationery… but you can also sell them to other creators in online marketplaces.

Do I need a Canva Pro account?


Who is this for?

This training is perfect for you if…

  • You are a creative soul (no need to be an artist or illustrator)
  • You’re interested in selling digital products
  • You’d love to learn how to create passive income
  • You have a free Canva account and know the basics of it
  • You want to have fun creating unique patterns!

This training happens on Tuesday, January 9th at 8am PT / 11am EST / 4pm UK / 5pm CET

At $17, grab all 12 courses (a savings of $323.90) which is truly a steal (and one of the reasons I haven’t promoted his offers in recent months.)

Since I’ve bought his Christmas Deals bundle over the last few years, I would not feel right promoting individual releases since I myself hold out until now to grab this deal.

Even if there’s only one or two courses that you can make use of, this is a no brainer deal. Plus, there are lots of interesting ideas and niches that might spark further ideas for you to pursue in 2024.

I’ve included all the OTO’s in the funnel below. The one I highly recommend is OTO1. If you’re interested in prompts, check out OTO 3 and 4, as well as his special add-ons if you’re a raving fan of everything Alessandro creates.

  • OTO2: These are all of the prompts Alessandro released with Paulo Gro. $37
  • OTO3: These are the prompt upsells released with Paulo Gro. $67.
  • OTO4: This is a series of Alessandro’s special offers and premium webinars. $47
  • OTO5: This is every collection included in every one of his previous Christmas Deals. $27. (Fantastic deal!)

This sale has been extended until January 6th so this is your last chance to grab his main offer for $17 instead of $97 along with my awesome goodies which are great not only for Christmas but year-round.

BONUS – If you purchase Alessandro’s offer using my link, make sure you see my name “laramai” at the bottom of the checkout page where it says powered by Warrior Plus when you hover over the little person icon.

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.”

If you purchase the main offer, you’ll receive my
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 OTO2, you’ll receive my gorgeous 50 piece set of Bokeh Christmas Tree papers which will be waiting for you in your member dashboard.

If you purchase OTO3, you’ll receive my brand new stunning Sparkly Poinsettia 20 piece set of seamless papers in 12 x 12 repeating pattern. (This collection set will be waiting for you after January 6th. Preview of 8 of the possible images included.)

If you purchase OTO4, you’ll receive my Christmas Gift Wrap papers in “Vintage Metallic” and “Gift Wrap” (40 + 40.) All four sets including the brand new Bokeh Christmas papers (150 gorgeous pieces in total!) are waiting for you in your Warrior Plus account dashboard upon purchase. 💘

If you purchase OTO5 (which is the other deal I highly recommend if you don’t already have his products from previous years) I’ll throw in my gorgeous 20 piece set of Christmas Holiday Market papers which will be waiting for you in your member dashboard.

A set of simple questions help identify items to keep, donate, fix, sell, or discard and once the decision is made there are sheets to keep a check on items in each of those categories so buyers know when they have completed the process of getting clutter out of their home.

There’s also a storage log to help find items at a later date. What’s in box 2 in the garage? They’ll know at the click of a button. Where did they put the floor sander? It’s all there.

Full instructions are included so you can easily add your own design ideas to make your product unique or make a special version for different customers.

The Decluttering Spreadsheet uses Google Sheets which most customers will be familiar with and have free access to, but it doesn’t rely on any spreadsheet knowledge. The interface is very simple for customers and the steps for getting started are included in the product.

Customers can start using it right away as it can be used this year, next year, and every year in the future making it an evergreen product which is attractive to those on a budget.

I have a sweet gift available for a short time: My 20 piece “Sunflower Love” Paper Pack which you can get for free when you pick up Faith’s FREE Sunflowers Calendar 2024. 🌻

Yep! You’ll get her Sunflower planner AND my paper pack both for free. (I sell my images in my Etsy store for $10 with personal use (worth $200) but since you’ll be getting this with commercial usage, the value is more than $200.

Consider it my little reader-only gift to you! Faith has always been super generous with her time and resources (such as her low cost membership which you can read more about below) so it seems only fitting to add my companion pack.

Faith’s planner includes a total of 16 pages with planner covers, calendar 2024, and journal lined page.

You’re not just getting access to a useful planner, but after you sign up, Faith will be popping into your inbox with little mini trainings on customizing PLR, improving your design skills, marketing tips, and surprise products and trainings (even EXCLUSIVE ones!).

There’s also an exclusive Take Action design challenge for you with details sent to you via email on the third day after you sign up for the Sunflowers Calendar. Many of her enthusiastic community members have shared their creations in her Facebook group and received coupon codes from her.

If you’re interested in not only scoring a free planner but learning some new tips and taking action in her upcoming design challenge, sign up while you can.

And make sure to check out Faith’s course blowout and her low cost membership below.


With so many freebies available right now around PLR, I found something a little different that I think would really make a difference if you’re relatively new to writing a newsletter, need help, or interested in starting one.

Liz Wilcox, the creator of Email Marketing Membership has a Mega Swipe File available for free and it includes:

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

Liz and I both use Convertkit and you can sign up for their free plan that’s good for your first 1,000 subscribers.

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’.


MaryJo also has a gift to share with you. It’s her brand new, super cute 2024 Resolutions Template Pack which comes with commercial rights.

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.

BONUS – If you purchase Katherine’s kit choose a one-time regular bonus from my bonus page.


The Self Publishing Titans Black Friday deal on their Everything Bundle, is going away soon. This is a huge, new set of tools to their website in the form of the if you’re super serious about upping your KDP game in 2024, this comes stuffed with all the tools you could possibly ever need to succeed in 2024 and beyond!

They’ve included a video of their new tools so make sure you check it out!

The bundle includes:

1) Titan Retro Vision: This will be a reverse ASIN research tool. Many of you have asked for a tool like this to have an affordable alternative to what is currently available. They’ve figured out how to make this a reality and it’s going to be a game changer.

2) Titan Deep View: This will be similar to Titans Quick View but instead of only analyzing the first page results, it will show you the first 100 product results for any search. There are a few similar tools out there, but what makes their tool unique is that it not only works for Amazon USA but on every single Amazon marketplace worldwide! You’ll also notice how much much faster speeds their tool is compared to other options out there.

3) Titan Product Tracking: This will allow you to track either your products or competitors products. Track rankings, review count, rating score, price. You’ll also have a long-running chart of all key metrics. What makes this tool great, is that you will be able to track more products than most other tools, which is once again much more affordable in comparison.

4) Titan Keyword Tracking: Track keyword rankings for any product on Amazon and see how it is performing and if it is ranking for a specific ASIN.

5) Digital Titans Designer: This special tool is perfect for creating custom fonts and cool designs for KDP, Print on Demand Merch, Etsy etc. They’ve also found one lacking feature in Canva which they’ve found a solution for!

Again, make sure you check out Corvin’s thorough video which walks you through all the features so you can decide whether these tools are right for you.

BONUS – If you grab the Everything Bundle, using my link, send your invoice to me and choose between either of the following options (or feel free to mix and match a bit of both!)

BONUS 1 – Choose six deluxe bonuses from my bonus page. Send your invoice for this one. For split payment option, send the invoice my way and I will send you your bonuses after both payments have cleared.

BONUS 2 – Book TWO 40 minute intuitive Pick My Brain Session to brainstorm your next big business idea.

I’ve helped many business owners with ideas on how to make money quickly so be sure to check out my about page and testimonials here.

NEW! If you don’t want a “pick my brain” session, I can walk you through how to use my A.I. software generator to create anything you’d love to make using my time-proven methods. That’s a HUGE value right there for custom branding + one on one support! Note, there are some exceptions that the generator doesn’t do well so if you want to write me beforehand to ask about what you’d like to create, feel free to drop me a separate email with the subject line “Coaching Bonus.”

These sessions will commence in January. If you need advice sooner, I can send you my responses over an email and/or a video recording. I am currently not accepting client work so bonuses are your only opportunity to work with me. However, if you don’t want this bonus, you can choose 4 of my higher end paper packs featured in my newsletter. If you need help choosing, drop me a line.


Check out my bonus page here. My bonuses do not have an expiry. I have been working on updating my bonus page (December 5th, 2023) so look forward to that soon.

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


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.
