Simply Saturday…embrace today

I was cleaning up the other day…yes, I know…I DO get distracted very easily. 😉 Especially if some random elements I’ve found in a pile go together so well! I came across this lovely pale lemon flower and this beautiful chipboard quote and had to put them together. The Asian feel of the quote just begged to be paired up with my Lizzie Anne Designs Far East set. As for the quote…

Yesterday is but a dream, Tomorrow but a vision

…reminds me that my life counts now. I only have today. Perhaps not tomorrow. {embrace} each moment , yes. Prepare for tomorrow, yes. Prepare for eternity, definitely.

With such a busy life it is so easy to think…tomorrow will be better, another year or so when they are all in school…. things will be better when the renovation is over…and it goes on. Sometimes I need to remind myself to stop and enjoy what the day brings. That sticky finger hug, the toys that get tripped over and even through the mess and stress of a renovation, be thankful that I am being so blessed that my husband is able to take this on for us. I think it is all about my attitude. Finding peace in that whirlwind.

Yesterday and Tomorrow

This design is super simple and serene to go with the style and the quote. Simple stamping, simple sponging, simple flower, a little sanding on the chipboard to add to the look and a simple little knot of twine to draw attention to that darling little lantern.

{embrace today}

Wishing you a simply wonderful day.
