*8Things: Projects I've Got Cookin'

8things from Magpie Girl

My mind is so very busy right now that I wake up in the middle of the night strategizing. So here’s a list to store some of it — *8Things I’ve Got Cookin’. What’s on your burners?

1. ESeries Art Lessons : art history + soulcare + blessings from moi, delivered to your inbox for a low weekly price.
2. ESeries Do Less Revolution: how to do less and live more, one weekly step at a time.
3. ESeries Withmate Stories – The Religious Recovery Series:  support as you walk through the stages of (possibly)  leaving church and finding a spirituality that fits. (I don’t know if I have the audience or passion for this one. I’m chewing on it. It would be this kind of topic, but in podcast + worksheet form. Would it appeal to Y.O.U.?)
4. Magpie Girl Re-Launch: circus-y tattooish goodness focused on care for creative souls.
5. Flock: new offerings include advice from a Money Coach, SoulFood (recipes), and an interview with Carrie McCarthy, author of our Read Along book, Style Statement.
6. SoulRetreats: We’re FINALLY going to sell our Magpie Girl’s Guide to hosting your own SoulRetreat. It will go out to mailing list people only at first, for an introductory price. So sign up!
7. 30 Days to Pavlov – The Exercise Version: I’m half way thru and exercising daily! (“the ritual has begun”)
8. 30 Days to Pavlov – The Sugar Free Version: I’m three days in and super headachey! :-(

Wow! you have a lot cookin’! I like the list.
I have a little list myself:
1. get liability statement and disclosure statements approved by attorney (free fortunately)
2. continue dialogue with local WordPress customizer lady and choose a theme (I like Johnny be Truant, but isn’t it great to find someone local?)
3. find a general practice/family medicine doc to participate
4. get #4 key unstuck (I only remember this when I need to type a 4)
5. take anger management classes
6. enroll my son in obedience classes
7. celebrate husband turning in dissertation
8. go to sleep!

It’s so nice to meet you. I love your Eight Things on the Burner idea. Thank you so much for book recommendation on Frida. I would love to be interviewed on your blog. I really like what you are doing here!

So I’ve been wanting to say something like this for a while, I am your audience for religious recovery. I found your blog about a year ago and your post on the hawk and the dove was the catalyst that pushed all the discontent I’d been feeling into something new it gave me the momentum to start leaving church. I love all the wonderful new artful things that are going on with you and your space, I know that what’s most important is for you to do what you need most. But I would be sad to loose that connection entirely.

I needed to sit down and think about all this–especially today–thank you!

Thanks for the feedback Allysa. I’m still chewing on the ESeries on Religious Recovery. It’s a big commitment — like writing a book — so I want to make sure I have the audience before I start. I appreciate the input.

We are doing a lot of religious recovery in Flock, of the reconstructive variety — ie. rebulding practices we can whole heartedly commit to. Our motto is “finding a spirituality that fits.” We’d love it if you could join us


Yours on the Journey,

As someone who used to read Franklin Planner catalogs for fun, seeing other people’s to-do lists = entertaining and inspiring. Thank you for the prompt!
