I accidentally finished the six items or less challenge a few days early. For some reason I had in my head that it finished at the end of the month, so that's when I finished. But I've just remembered it didn't officially start until the 10th. Oops! I still had a few days to go.

Wearing second-hand and handmade was a sign of poverty..something to be ashamed of. That surprised me. I’ve learned to love wearing second-hand. I like that I can count the times our household has broken the ethical clothing pledge in the past nine months on one hand. I like that our clothes have a history...a story. Like the outfit Little Eco wore to a party today. The ribbon was a gift from my sister’s opp-shop-sourced ribbon collection. The... Read more →
