OBSESSED: The Perfect Handbag Exists Only in My Imagination

By Margaret Crandall

“All I want is a lightweight, simple, minimalist, non-leather, crossbody bag that 1) has room enough for my wallet, two glasses cases, phone, keys, and a few other small items, 2) has no visible branding because last time I checked Miss Burch and her friends weren’t paying us for advertising, and 3) doesn’t cost a small fortune.”

COURSE: End-of-Life Planning Workshop


Hey peeps, Margit here. We really want you to attend this course — the first edition from doula extraordinaire Liz Lightner was so valuable and chock full of tips and good discussion (I have my QR code directives started!) We had a great crowd, but we really want you ALL to benefit. If you sign up today you can catch up on the first class or just start with the 2nd. So many of you have told me this is a pain point for you — how to get those death documents in order, for you or your parents or loved ones. This class was $125 — so this is a big, big savings. And Liz typically does one-on-one work so this is a great opportunity.

End-of-life doula Liz Lightner leads this 4-week course in which you’ll learn how to decide, discuss, document, and digitize all aspects of end-of-life. We’ve got three more sessions, and we’d love to have you there!
