It’s official…we’re in the middle of another miserable heat wave here in Central Ontario. The temperature hit 41C at about noon this afternoon. I’ve got my laptop set up in the living room so I can take advantage of the air conditioning and still get some work done.
But I have to say after working almost exclusively on the desktop for the past couple of years with its double monitors and full size mechanical keyboard, this little laptop screen and silent keys are taking some getting used to!
But the option is good and I’m grateful to have it in this heat!
Here’s what I have for you in today’s roundup…
Last Full Day for the 5 Buck Birthday Blowout
Today is the last full day for my 5 Buck Birthday Blowout. I’ll be turning the sale prices off at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning and I know myself well enough to know that I won’t get an email out to you that early in the morning!
Here are all the details you need if you haven’t checked it out yet…
I have decided to add a live repurposing Q and A as a bonus for anyone who either spends at least $15 or buys the bundle before the sale ends on Monday. We’ll take a closer look at 4 or 5 of the products in the bundle and brainstorm ways to use them to create printables and maybe even a KDP book or two. I’ll email everyone who qualifies on Monday evening with the registration link for the call.

What’s Coming Next Week
There are some great launches coming next week. On Monday Jay has a new set of coloring pages for you, and YuShaun and Cally also have a new release tomorrow morning. On Tuesday, Jan Small and Jayne from Sylverzone Printables are launching a new training on Affinity and I’ll have a bonus for that one. On Wednesday, Tools for Motivation is offering another $10 special for you, and on Thursday, Alice and Yusef have a new ekit launching that I think will also go really well with YuShaun and Cally’s topic and I’ll be doing a bonus for that one as well. And if all goes well, sometime towards the end of the week Mel is launching her newest planners.
As for me, I’ll be working on websites in between workshops all week. On Tuesday we’ll be doing the rescheduled List Building with Lead Magnets workshop, on Wednesday Mel and I are doing the live workshop that was part of Kimberley Crowe’s giveaway, and on Friday is the Bonus Q and A for my Birthday Blowout (for customers who spend $15 or more).
And that’s it for me today. Even sitting in the living room at my little laptop desk is getting pretty toasty so I’m heading for a bowl of ice cream and a chair closer to the cool air!
Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy!
P.S. Don’t forget to check out the 5 Buck Birthday Blowout!
