Random Act of Kindness

As promised, I am posting more!  Have you noticed that the world seems to lack a little gentility these days? In our rush to get through our lists, care for the important others in our life, etc., it seems as though we have very little time to do a random act of kindness for strangers.  Stepping outside our established relationships and helping others becomes something of a miracle due to the many constraints placed on our time. This week, I was on the receiving end of one such miracle!  I wanted to share with you the lovely mail art envelope that I received from Susan at Paper Art Team. Not only did she take the time to decorate the envelope but she also .... (insert drum roll here) filled it with envelopes!! 

I have been watching tutorials on envelope pockets, envelope mini-albums, altered envelopes ... You get the idea!  Unfortunately, I did not have any envelopes and have spent a fortune on craft and art supplies lately so it was a purchase I just continued to put off.  Susan was the cure to my desperate need of a solution.  I have already started using these envelopes to help build the pages for the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe gate-fold album I am using.

So first, I would like to send Susan a giant heartfelt THANK YOU!  Second, I would like to encourage you to visit her blog.  Last, but certainly not least, I would like to share my treasure with you. Remember, art is in your heART. :)

Mistakes are Proof That You're Trying ... isn't that the truth?!
