The theme for this project is Random Acts of Kindness!! Traditionally Valentine’s Day is about the one you love, but in this day and age of so many people feeling disconnected from the world we thought it would be nice to go out there and share some love with some strangers.
We’re asking you to create five postcards with a message of love, support, hope, inspiration and leave them in random places through out your town or city. The idea is to leave them as a surprise for someone else to find.
We'd also love for you to put the Creative Collective contact information on them so that people can get online and let everyone know that they've found your special card. To help we've developed a postcard template that can be downloaded from the new Creative Collective Blog. (Instructions for use of template will be provided at the Creative Collective Blog.)
We want to see what you have created! Take a photo of your newly created craft item where you hid it and then upload it to the Creative Collective Flickr Group or the Facebook Page. Don't forget to include, in the comments/description fields, clues (not the actual location) for how people can find the card, how you made the card and what materials you used. The more information you can leave the greater the chance of the image being used by other people and the cards being found.
As cards are posted to Flickr and Facebook the ladies of Creative Collective will post them to the Creative Collective Blog with your clues on how to find them.
This project runs from today until February 28, 2011. At the end of the month we're asking all members of Creative Collective to blog about their favourite cards and stories of finding them. The founding members will certainly be blogging their favourites!
Now it is time to get your craft on! We can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
All items must be handmade by you.
You must not leave personal contact details on the cards. (Like your phone number or address.)
