The Dying Art of Human Connection and Random Kindness
In the 1st time in maybe what feels like forever - this is NOT a Design post here in my blog world.
I feel the need to say and do something important.
The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of work/life/chaos as I have been dealing with many levels of reality. Meaning: LIFE IS HAPPENING. It's been hitting me with several "WTF" moments at an alarming pace almost daily and I should be wearing a flack jacket for all the #*@* coming my way. My grandmother (Baba) has recently been hospitalized and has exceeded the level of care they can provide for her at the care home she was residing in. This next step of life (meaning = end of life) is one I have always been afraid of - and - I wish I could go back and be a little girl again.
I just want to make pretty things - even if nobody cares. Even if they are more passionate about the whitening brightening power of their toothpaste. Or if they are in to binge-watching horrible drivel on Netflix for hours of their life. I just want people to do whatever makes them happy.
The sad truth is - lately this world has been more bent on showing how awful someone else is...than by shining their own light.
So I'm here to *@! shit up (as my hip kids would say!)
As a rebellious Random Act of Kindness - I am giving away a BRAND SPANKING NEW
May 2017 Kit of the month from Unity (which was sent to me by mistake)
And now - I want to give it to someone. Someone who really needs something to brighten their day -and I am TOTALLY paying the shipping so even if you live in some far away universe and really dig making crafty things - you defintiely deserve to win this!
SO here is the catch...
1. I want you to comment here so I know you read this entire post - and tell me I am not completely crazy for just wanting people to be a little kinder. We are all trying!
2. Next - Make a card. Seriously. Make one. And send it to a friend. Hell, send it to an enemy. (but try to be nice, haha) You can even send it to a damn stranger by looking up a totally random name/address in a good old fashioned phone book (you may have to find one in a museum) I hope they don't call the police and have you committed.
Now I am not waiting forever to choose - so you literally have until Sunday June 4th at 9 AM CST to at least let me know you stopped by. Spread the random kindness on your own :)
Love, Peace n Ink
