Kindness Matters 12/30-1/5

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

As we head into 2020, I thought a nice challenge would be Random Acts of Kindness (RAKs). While an unexpected note of care to a family or friend will absolutely count, I am going to challenge you to think outside of your circle of family and friends. It doesn't need to be a big grandiose gesture, because ALL KINDNESS MATTERS.

If you need some help getting the creative juices flowing, here are some suggestions:
- Leave a card for your favorite waiter/waitress that you always ask for their station
- A note to that cashier you seek out because they are fast and NICE
- The local police or fire station for keeping you safe 24/7
- A shut in that would enjoy some blank cards to send out
- The Red Cross Donation Center because what they do really matters
- Drop off some cards to a local nursing home

I made some bookmarks that I'm going to slide into books at the library.

Hello from New York...
Well she did it, I never had so much fun watching my sister make these cards from really nothing.
She got a package of stickers (8) from the Dollar Store and a small tube of glue....next we went to Walmart got
3 panel of paint chips (2 blue & 1 brown/tan) plus 2 square blue paint chips...she did ask if she could take these paint chips.
The white for the base is somewhat computer paper but much thicker so it worked perfectly....we forgot to get embellishments so the dots are from a paper punch that my nephew had then we all went to my nephew office to use the paper trimmer ( I've never seen such a big trimmer in my life it was huge) to square off the cards some were kinda off (she free handed the folds) so my crafter friends here are the cards that my sister made in three days...
Oh by the way the butterfly on the top right side came from a floral wreath she had in the spare bedroom...lol

We are going back to the Dollar Store to get more stickers and paint chips at Walmart she wants to make more cards for the staff helpers at the rehab center where her husband was before he passed away last January.
The cards up above cost her $2.00 total. (stickers & glue)
