Love this poem. Luckily I have a mum that says "We'll do it tomorrow' all the time while refering to laundry, cleaning the house or some other chore that gets in the way of our fun.

And, yet, the house and laundry always seem to get clean.

Love the poem - it is sad that we need to remind ourselves to slow down, enjoy the day and the rest can wait, it is a lesson that should not be so hard to learn. Love your cards, so beautiful. I love to look at the layers and details you add, so love you work. It is a reflection of the beauty you hold. Thanks for sharing with us all!

Fun, fun cards as always! Thanks for the sharing the poem - a great reminder for everyone. Have a splendid weekend with your family.


Your cards are so adorable and fun! The poem is so beautiful and as I age it seems to be a message I hear more often and from many is so great that such a young woman like you is listening now! Thanks for sharing both!

LOVE the poem. Thanks for sharing. It is so perfect for this week when life became more hectic with school starting for the kids. I think that I will take a slow dance. Enjoy the weekend.
