Thought I'd post a few random projects. Several people on one of my online groups were talking about doing more RAKs and someone said she was going to put all the names in a jar and just pick out a few each week. Another gal came up with the name of "Art of Random Thoughtfulness" (ART) which I really liked, so I decorated a small glass jar with ribbon and a label using this. I printed out the names of all our members plus their addresses. I can now pull out a name and send off a RAK without having to look for the address. Once I send one, I will throw out that paper so there will be no duplicates and I will be able to send something to everyone. This system is working well so far. Sorry for the poor photo - it's hard to see the jar on the black background- but here's my ART jar:
My local art group met last week and we made little books using one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock, two squares of lightweight cardboard for covers and a yard of ribbon. The trick is all in the folding and cutting of the cardstock. We used Xmas paper for the cover and gold-embossed Stampington's "The Twelve Days of Christmas" stamp set on the pages. These little cuties are only 3 1/4" square.
