Samples of Finished Resources

Most of the resources in the Archives are text and graphics -- ready for your design, your creativity. You can re-format them to suit your needs.

Here are samples of finished resources from us and from others to spark your creativity. Yes, you can use them 'as is,' or take the original elements and add your personality! Most are in PDF format.

NOTE: The name Alternatives for Simple Living and the contact information mentioned in some of the following are obsolete. You may want to line them out on copies you make and substitute SimpleLivingWorks@yahoo.com.
