Kindness Mission: I'm in!

So we are just going to skip right over the part where I apologize for being a bad blogger....a slacker...if you will, and get right to the good stuff!!! Inspired Artist Kelly Rae Roberts has started a movement! Well, we hope it will be a movement, and if everyone participates it will be!! Go check out her blog post Here, where she talks about the Kindness Mission, and get busy!! Here is my photo of the two signs I put up in my local neighborhood Starbucks, in Claremont, CA
It is such a simple, yet inspired idea:  Someone having a bad day, or just a day where they need a little something to keep them going.  This could be it.  This could be what makes their day.  Seeing this sign, tearing off one of the little tabs, for just what they were needing that day.  It's Brilliant!! Mad love!  So besides this beautiful piece of"make my day", what else has been going on?  Well, Journalfest was last week and again, what a fabulous time hanging with my village!! It was my second year, and from what I understand, will be my last.  :( Sad, I know, but our friend Teesha Moore has bigger and better brewing I'm sure.  You can read about her announcements here.  So I am hoping to get to Artfest at the end of March, to get that last "fest" in!  Here are a few samples and pics of my time at Fort Worden, Port Townsend, WA.  It was magical as always.  I will miss it, that's for sure!

Nice pictures and the phrases on the first one: "Take what you need" and "Stop bullying now" :)
