For my final Playing with Papers, I wanted to create something that would be meaningful far beyond the walls of my studio, something that combines my passion for art with LOTS of kindness, and something that would be fun and easy to do...
I immediately thought of this post that was inspired by the amazingly enchanting Patience Salgado. Patience is the kindness girl behind "guerrilla goodness":
"So much kindness you just can't help but smile and cry happy tears at the sheer joy of it all. The best part? Being kind, purposefully kind, is really so simple. Anyone can do it!"

For this week's project, I started by using last Friday's "Paper Love" FREE collage papers to create a template of blank mini note cards. (Please feel free to use my template too!)
Then I cut out the cards, wrote words of encouragement, and headed out to spread the love around town...
In a dressing room,
In a library book about interviewing for a job,
In a friend's mailbox,
At a bus stop,
In the "self-help" section,
In the waiting room at the hospital,
And in the suitcase of my sweetie!
I am carrying the rest of the blank note cards that I printed with a pen at the ready - Opportunities to offer words of encouragement and share some kindness are everywhere!
Won't you join me for a little "guerrilla goodness"?!?
