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.

Oh...a scrapbook. I'm horrible at that. How about a cute little photo album instead? I could possibly handle covering one in pretty fabric. I'm pretty swift with a glue gun.


That has been my plan as well... A scrapbook for me... you can do it... I really like to scrapbook. The reason I like it is that I keep it simple. When I finish my scrapbook of ABC's I will send you a picture. Don't look for it soon... in the middle of master's classes. I will do it though... I have to have an outlet for all of this brain activity!

YAY! Thank you for giving these away as free downloads. I plan on making Christmas gifts for the Ladies in my Bible Study. Target had their awesome clearance on school supplied which included index cards and these cute index card boxes in shades of green, red, and blue. I plan on getting fancy alphabet stickers and putting the letter on the reverse side of the card and printing the info on the other side. Add a pretty Christmas ribbon and Voila! But, I do LOVE to scrapbook - so maybe I can take time and make one of those for myself :)
Thanks again!!
~Blessings to you and your family~


I like jennifer's idea. Think I might do that too for some homemade Christmas gifts this year. Very cool, thank you so much!!!


Hmm....How about I scrap a set for you and you keep on trying to teach me how to crochet...or knit...or something with yarn so I can eventually make a shawl...
