RAK's (Random acts of Kindness)


RAK's (Random acts of Kindness)

I noticed there was no group for this, and I thought that there should be because it is nice to wake up to an envelope of goodies without knowing it was coming. You can also post wishes on this page - things you would like to receive to give people an idea of what they could send you.

Hi Al, I'd love to have some of your vintage materials. I am fond of illustrations, but I will be delighted to receive whatever is available. Thanks.

Hi Linda, it was me, Gretchen who send you the envy of ephemera. And YES, my dad really has a cousin named Linda Freeman! Lol.  Hope you find some inspiration in some of that stuff!

Update: The Washi RAK I posted... mystery solved. The sender gave herself away when she asked if I received a package. :) It was a dear friend trying to surprise! That, she did.

Trouble with RAK is you're never sure if that's what your mail art really is -- but this one had no return info, and was very mysterious, so I'm guessing that's what it is.

I have BOXES of old images (photographic, illustrated) cut from 100s of vintage mags and books. send me a message, and I will be happy to send some along. Random is easiest, but I will try to honor specific requests.

Received a RAK from Ohio today! I am so inspired by everything I received! I especially love the vintage photos! Thank you whoever you are!

Thanks whoever sent me the two stapled together postcards, very old, that had printed on them "Do Not Bend--Do Not Open"--you knew I'd have to take those staples out, right? I love the pictures of the people on the reverse sides of the two PC's. One of the PC's has a letter to "Dear Brother & Sister" from Mr. and Mrs. B. H. W. and the other has just the names, Elvira Smith, Anthony Ferris Smith, Ada's mother and father. Love them both.

Thanks, Jade. I am. It is. I just wish I knew who to thank for the lovely gift/gesture.
