Or, as they're known by many, RAKs. A smile here, an opened door there. Paying for the guy's coffee in the car behind you in drive-through, leaving a handmade card for someone going through a rough time. All are random, all are appreciated more than anyone will ever know.
I have been peppering a few teachers and staff with RAKs this year. A few are going through rough times, so I wanted to let them know they aren't alone in their prayers by saying it in cards. A couple had babies, and I wanted to brighten their day with a handmade gift to cheer their sleep-deprived weeks. Here is a gift I made for one of the new mommies.
While rummaging for deals at a rummage sale, I found a shadow box with a weird focus, but the frame was sturdy, so I cracked it open and threw the weirdness away.
I covered the back with patterned paper, adding a photo mat. Then I had fun with a paper piecing, handmade flowers and some baby embellishments.
When I gave it to my teaching friend, she loved it, and immediately thought it would be the perfect place to keepsake her new daughter's hospital wristband. I put a smile on her face, and on a Monday morning, in her class room!
Now it's your turn. Do something nice, randomly. And keep crafting!!
