Maycember Updates and Tons of DEALS!
"Maycember it's just like the chaos of December without all of the twinkle lights and cookies!" Loosely quoted from the Holderness family :)
I don’t know about you but every May I feel like I am slapped in the face with absolute chaos that I’m not prepared for. Maybe I need to put a note in my calendar for May 1st 2024- FYI-May sucks! Somehow I remember to warn, remind and validate my clients about the struggle of May but I forget about it myself!
How have I dealt with May? My creative brain has been on a renaissance of sorts lately and I hope that all of you benefit from it. And because it’s May, I figured I’d make things easier for you in case you missed my many social media posts and newsletters and consolidate all of the new products, free resources, and more that my creative spring has sprung! Stick with me through this post because this is definitely the most free resources and huge discounts I have ever shared at one time.
Here is a great throwback video explaining why some kids and teens are a bit “extra” during the transition to the end of school, EVEN when they are excited for school to be over!
Transition trouble and how to help on Instagram
