Immediately a list of people that could use "happiness in an envelope" (as I have named my project, rather than sticking to its assigned number) so I set out to make one.
Here's what it is:
|Obviously, because I can't seem to ever follow instructions without tweaking them a bit, I'm sending a large envelope verses a regular-sized one. The bigger, the more love (time,effort,thought) it will take and contain.|
|To me, the secret is to not over think it, sure these are random clippings and I mean random ...|
|..but that's the great part, for me the sender, and for the receiver..it's something new, a part of someone else's world...|
|I took time to write out a list of websites I like..because of their randomness of course, such as: Chris McKenzie or Bubble Wrap!|
|And here's where the randomness is up to your life..what do you have hanging around? I had stickers, cutouts from notebooks, cut out from the wrapper of a rose bouquet, a magnet puppy, post cards and mini calendars...|
|Write some inspirational quotes on those note cards you have in your drawer, for yourself, and for the love envelope!|
I'm not finished accumulating things yet, I still need to develop photographs, find a short story, more stickers and cutouts, and print a poem. But I thought I'd share my Monday's project with you all. When you're finished, don't forget to finish it all up by giving the inside of the envelope one spray of your favorite perfume/body spray!
It's random, it's fun to make, it's something everyone would like to receive in the mail one day. Try it!
