Simple Living Pledge

Pop on over to Sonya's blog Kanelstrand and join up for the three week Simple Living Challenge.

From 1 February 2012, for three weeks, I pledge to:

  • Identify the important things and attempt to eliminate everything else
  • Free time to do what inspires me and be with the people I love
  • Declutter my mind and my life
  • Live frugally
  • Slow down and be present in the moment.
  • Have a healthy body and home
  • Be green and sustainable


  1. Hi Helen.
    Received this lovely comment on the blog post about your paper dog:

    Dear Helen,
    I can vividly recall my late father (ex Royal Navy) who during the fifties made these dogs from "Players Navy Cut" and "Senior Service" packets. From what I can remember he made them in 2 sizes, the smaller from the 10 packet and the larger from a 20 packet.
    I also recollect he made circular, cylindrical containers with lid using "Woodbine Packets" which he described as a biscuit barrel. No doubt many a sailor spent their spare time on board ship making these items.
    Please keep your dog on a tight leash as this species must now be an absolute rarity.
