World Kindness Day 2015


Hi Friends,

Today, as we mark ‘World Kindness Day 2015,’

we have yet another poignant reminder

of the need to help this world

turn much more gently.


As the news reports

show the latest, tragic acts of terrorism,

our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France.


When times are difficult,

it always helps me to intentionally focus my thoughts


blessings and kindness.


For most of us, kindness is a lifestyle!

The smallest things we do

can bring us great joy ~

and spread joy at the same time.

Today I spent many blissful hours in my paper crafting studio,

adding the finishing touches to our Thanksgiving cards

and making a few special Kindness cards.

I can’t wait to mail them!



Sentiment ~ ‘Throw kindness around like it’s confetti’

My paper crafting friends might be curious about the supplies I used:

Canson XL watercolor paper

Sentiment: Honey Bee Stamps

Versamark ink, Ranger Sea Foam White embossing powder

Ranger Distress inks: picked raspberry, mustard seed, peacock feathers

Sequins: Neat and Tangled

Recollections 110lb white cardstock

Listening to: Great ‘Oldies’ on the radio

Feeling: So blessed!


Have you been the recipient of any small acts of kindness this week?

Have you shared handmade kindness?


I’ll begin… and hope you will jump in to share.

We can focus on small

acts of Kindness

to help ‘make this world turn more gently.’


While we were out of town this week,

our kind neighbor raked all of our leaves as a sweet surprise!

This afternoon, I surprised him with

a handmade ‘So very Grateful’ bookmark,

 freshly baked cookies

(shaped like maple leaves and oak leaves, of course!)

and hot cocoa.



Now it’s your turn to share…


Have a wonderful November weekend, everyone!

Thank you for stopping to visit today!

Scatter kindness!

♡ Dawn
