It’s no secret that I love tags. I rubberstamp them. I tie them on to packages. I paint them. I am currently in a tag collaboration with another artist friend. Little Known Fact: I also use a new tag as a book mark with every book that I read. Sometimes I write just one word on the tag. Or I use some of my washi tape to decorate it. I even doodle on them from time to time. From this love of tags came the inspiration for the #taggedbykindness project.
I recently began decorating tags and tucking them into my library books before I return them. I thought this would be a really fun way to spread some positivity through a Random Act of Kindness (RAK). I always handwrite #taggedbykindness on the back. Every once in a while I check social media to see if the tags have been found yet.
In all likelihood I will never meet any of the recipients of the #taggedbykindness project. I’m fine with this reality. That’s not the purpose of this project any way. This is a very small way to send positive energy out in to the universe. I hope that whoever finds these little tags is inspired to do something positive for someone else. Oh the many possibilities of paying it forward…
I would love if you would join me in spreading some good vibes with the #taggedbykindness project. Grab a few tags, decorate them anyway you’d like and spread them randomly in spots where they will one day be found. We’re not just limited to library books. I’m thinking coffee shops, dentist appointments (in the magazines). How about in a restaurant? Slip one under the tip for the waitress. Half the fun is figuring out where to leave these little pieces of papery goodness.
One small drop of kindness…imagine the ripple.
