all my various projects {in addition to the ones I've blogged about}

Ok, things are busy over here. Ever the glutton for punishment or, as I like to put it, an enthusiastic multi-tasker, I've signed on for several new projects!

The first is the Gypsy Dreams blog party, brought to you by Celia from Adventures of the Striped Stockings. I've never done a blog party before so I'm pretty excited! I'm busy dreaming and plotting my great Gypsy debut...

Gypsy Dreams Blog Party

Next up, another blog party! Practical Magic 2011 by Frosted Petunias. Cause well, not only do I love the movie, I loved the things that were out and about during last year's party.

And for those of you who haven't figured it out by now, I'm a big fan of the yoga. Big fan. But I hurt my knee a year ago during Nia and have gotten really out of shape. Now it's time to get off my lazy butt, get back in shape and back on the mat! However, after a brief stint back at Nia and also at Zumba, I decided that while it was time to head back to my yoga practice, I wanted to take things slowly and not commit to a full hour and a half class yet, or work in a group at the class pace because I need to be taking time to check in, position properly, and take care of my injury. And I know that in a class I tend to push in order to keep up with others. So for now, I've commited to an online practice (which feels a bit counter intuitive to me but I'm giving it a go because it feels like the right thing for me, right now). So far I'm enjoying it.

And last, but not least, I'm working on a Halloween Album with prompts from Ali Edwards! I have great plans for this album and am already thinking of ways to modify and make it grow for a more pagan friendly context. Oh how the ideas abound...

What about you? Are you working on any great new projects that you're dying to share? I'd love to know about them because let's face it, I love projects! (I'm such a glutton for punishment).



  1. I'm right there with ya. I feel like I ALWAYS have projects going on. Right now it's trying to come up with fresh amigurumi patterns.

    I checked out the Yoga site. Sounds like an interesting idea. Should you ever learn the position called the raven or crow or squatting vulture or something weird like that, let us know. As far as I can remember, it's one that involves putting your hand on the floor, bending your arms so your elbows are out and letting your knees sit on your upper arms in an inverted position. I'm not sure what the health benefit of this position is, but it sure as heck amuses the instructor to watch you fall time and time again. :P

    P.S. And yay for the PM Blog partay! See you there!

  2. I know exactly what pose you're thinking of and I'll spare you all the details when I get there! Let's just say, I've been there before and it's not a graceful place for me!

  3. yay yoga! i'm actually feeling pretty darn crafty and trying out some new bracelets-necklaces (one of which is yoga friendly... and a giveaway :D )

    I'm also trying to reconnect with my spirituality. took kinda a back seat for a while.

    Good luck with the yoga challenge!

  4. OOh I'd not heard about the Ali Edwards Halloween project, going to have to do that. I'll look forward to seeing how you do yours with a pagan context, as I'd like to do something similar but not sure how at the moment.

  5. Thanks. Yay for fellow pagan scrapbookers. I'm still figuring out how I want to go about the project but I'm looking forward to playing with it.

  6. I also have so many projects going right now. I know how to say "no", I just don't want to miss out on all the fun. ;-)

  7. I am participating in this year's Practical Magic party too - can't wait to see what you (and all the other amazing bloggers) have in store!
