I'm a member of a facebook group called SMASH*aholics. Someone started emailing a list of members that would like to swap postcards, smashable goodies, and RAKs (random acts of kindness). A couple of months ago, I decided to start sending 5 RAKS per month to 5 random people off the list. It only costs a few dollars, and it brings me joy to make the RAKs. The recipients aren't expecting anything from me, which makes it even more fun. I really enjoy surprising them and (hopefully!) brightening their day. One reason I started sending the RAKs is because I often buy a pack of something and can't use everything or don't need that many duplicates. Now I can use what I need and spread the love to some other people. This is also a great way to practice or try a new technique that you've been wanting to do.
This month's RAK was love/Valentine's Day themed (of course). I included heart paperclips, foam stickers, heart stickers from Target, a couple of Silhouette Cameo cuts, and adorable greeting cards from Michael's. Even if one of the recipients doesn't have a boyfriend or husband, they can still use the embellishments on a page about their favorite things or about something they love.
I hope this post inspires you to perform a Random Act of Kindness!
