Today’s the mailing deadline for Pocket Change! Below are my artist trading card contributions for this swap, inspired by the important intention Kindness is a Choice. I used some of my assorted ATC stock, as well as a couple of playing cards for the cards’ foundations…then collage bits & pieces, words from an old dictionary, some distressed ink and stain, and a gold paint pen for edging:
As a summary from my previous post about this project, this ATC swap aims to create good vibes in the spirit of transformation & giving through making small pieces of art for one another, as well as an invitation to keep spreading acts of creative kindness to others in our lives and community.
Just think about the awesome power & positive Pocket Change energy coming in from around the world and its potential impact…Here are some thoughts by Wayne Dyer:
Research has shown that a simple act of kindness directed toward another improves the functioning of the immune system and stimulates the production of serotonin in both the recipient of the kindness and the person extending the kindness. Even more amazing is that persons observing the act of kindness have similar beneficial results. Imagine this! Kindness extended, received, or observed beneficially impacts the physical health and feelings of everyone involved!
Now that Pocket Changers have collectively made & extended their acts of kindness in the form of hundreds of ATCs, stayed tuned for more on the receiving and observing benefits as Hannah, Beth, and I begin to exchange and post the affirming mini works of art and stories sent in for this project… Lots of creative goodness to be shared and to be continued soon…
