The Random Act of Kindness (RAK) like those of Amelie in the fabulous and beautiful movie Le Fabuleux destin d’Am?lie Poulain does, are selfless acts performed by a person wishing to either assist or cheer up another individual. One RAK, for example, is to send someone a nice gift without expecting to get anything back – just out of the blue because you want to, like TJ in Germany did for me recently. I was blown away buy all the cute stuff she sent me, knowing about my love for owls, papers, pens and fun decorations. She writes that she wanted to give a token of gratitude for linking me to her blog. I continued to get traffic from iHanna’s very popular site even through her summer hiatus. iHanna was one of the first people in the blog-o-sphere to really help me along.
Along with her very sweet and endearing letter my favorite item in the package is this owl pendant that she made for me:
I ♥ it! It is adorable, isn’t it? You’re absolutely jealous, right? I know, I’m a lucky girl. Read more about it in TJ’s own post Owl Shrine.
The scrapbook owl in the cardmaking kit I got is a keeper – too cute to give away. I’ve put where I can see it every day:
Paper Owl – now on my recycled Letter Box Hanger thing that I love.
