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.
Comment with your address - (and your wishes)

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.

Ashamed to say that I joined this group, but hadn't checked in since then... sometimes, busy isn't best. Like David A. Goldberg, I'd not posted my likes and interests and yet someone took the time to learn a bit about me... Yesterday, I received an anonymous package containing the following... food to feed my washi stash! This kind, anonymous donor has tugged on the strings of my Washi heart. I have looked at every one of your addresses and it doesn't match. If it was one of you, you were quite sneaky about it. If it was not one of you, then I fear I shall never solve the mystery....This might have been what tipped them off:

Whoever you are, THANK YOU! The florals were a joyful spring gift of Washi Proportions! They truly made my day! Now to give serious consideration to making someone else's trip to the mail box a treat! :D

Jessica, when you say "pretty paper and envelopes", do you mean stationery? And UK postage stamps to mail, or used postage stamps from anywhere to use in collages?

I love this idea!

Wishes: I adore floral prints, old book or magazine cut outs, old photos, stickers, anything that sparkles. I love learning about history and could live in an antique store. I love all colors but I've been especially drawn to bright pinks lately.
