This is one of my favorite things to do. DO a simple kindness for someone who is not expecting it, for no reason and ask for NOT A THING in return!!!!This is the theme for the latest Street Team Challenge run by amazing artist, person, friend, Michelle Ward.
Not long ago I recieved a totally unexpected gift from one of my wonderful blogging friends. I was wonderfully surprised and blown away by her kindness. I felt truely loved and appreciated and I thought for about the zillionth time how much my blogging artist friends mean to me. My life has been so enriched and expanded since I started blogging. Sharing my work with "Strangers' and getting feedback from the same folks and establishing friendships based solely on common interests has been truely amazing.
So I am going to Pay that Kindness Forward to one of my inspirational blogging friends. This gal lives far away and we will likely never meet (I suppose one never knows though). She is an incredible inspiration and motivational force for me and I love visiting her blog to see the latest magical creations that she has wrought. I will be sending her a sampling of the amazing beads that my brother brought to me this summer. These beads are very SPECIAL.
They are made from recycled glass by HIV/TB patients (mostly women) in Tanzania. My friend has a passion for beads as I do and my brother was so generous in his gift to me that I immediately thought that I had to share the treasure. I know that my friend will create amazing things with these amazing beads. I also know that she will be very happy to PAY IT FORWARD!!!
