Deciding to leave a well paid job is a big step. Would we manage with less income? Would I feel lonely and worthless being at home again? Far from it! I have stumbled across a deep sense of satisfaction. The freedom to be creative and fill my home with hand crafted treasures, having the time to plan and cook healthy meals for my family and the time to 'Just Be'. Living a simple life is truly something to aspire to for everyone.

Hello - still here!
Sorry I've been off grid for a while. Seem to be in a bit of a 'fug'. Once I get myself out of it, I'll start posting regularly again :)
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas :)
Meanwhile, I wanted to post this picture of a gift I made for my daughter's American host family who have been very kind to her. Of course I couldn't post it earlier in case they saw it!
I got the idea from an item I had seen in a lovely little gift shop in Brixham. I'd love to say who the original artist was, but I didn't write the name down - I would be happy to credit the artist if anyone knows their name. It was such a lovely idea - simple yet very effective.
The pebbles came from Cowes beach on our visit to the Isle of Wight. I bought the box frame online.
I was very pleased with the effect and the family seemed to like it too :)
Back very soon and here's wishing you all a healthy, happy and simple 2016 x
