What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I love this bag! What type of fabric did you use to sew this bag? I've always wanted to sew a bag for university but am not sure which type of fabric to use.


I was going to ask the same thing. We're looking for sixties looking fabrics for a dress and I love the vintage looks you've made. Can you recomend any good sites for fabric? Do you use any Amy Butler?

I enjoy your blog! have fun in AK!


Man you're good. I'm so impressed y'all can just whip something up like it's no big deal.
