Hello fellow crafters – We’re moving into the time of year where holidays abound. My pantry is filled with fun-sized candy bars ready to give out on Halloween. I’m already making the plan for Thanksgiving. Fried turkey, anyone? And Christmas cards are designed and ordered. It got me wondering. While there are some major holidays celebrated these last few months of the year, what are some of the more offbeat ones?
I checked and found out that November 13th is World Kindness Day! According to the website, here’s the purpose of it:
“World Kindness Day is to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us. Kindness is a fundamental part of the human condition which bridges the divides of race, religion, politics, gender and zip codes.”
Very nice! I can’t believe this isn’t a special day that we pull out all the stops for. Because to my way of thinking, the world needs all the kindness it can get.
So, in celebration of World Kindness Day, I’ve made a card I’m going to leave on my co-worker’s desk first thing on the morning of November 13th. She is usually running in the door having been caught up in Atlanta traffic. I hope it puts a smile on her face!
|Here, I matted a journaling card on the inside to write my message.|

I hope you will take a moment and spread a little joy on World Kindness Day – it can’t hurt!
