Surprise for the Sisters

Good Wednesday morning! When I was in Washington last week, my sister & I decided to place some original ATC's around Pioneer Square in Seattle. I originally saw this idea on Marianne's blog http://mkonvalinka.blogspot.com/ about one year ago. We placed 20 ATC's in flower beds, hung from trees, lying on restaurant tables etc. It was fun placing them over about a 4 block area & wondering if people would actually pick them up & read them. Well, to my surprise.....I received this email last night:

Hi Diane,

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed finding the trading card `Mona moons the art world' on Jackson & 2nd Ave last week. I have it at my desk and it brings a smile every time I look at it.

This is a great way to enrich people's lives! Let me know if you would like to place any in the Starbucks HQ building. I'm certain that some of the 3,500 or so people that work here could also use a smile. Eventually, I will pass Mona along, but I am enjoying her way to much to let her go just yet...

have a great day!

Ed


I was shocked & positively thrilled at the same time. I am posting the "Mona" card referenced in this note. This card was actually made by my sister, Gail but since she doesn't have a blog, we put my blog name on it. Gail really deserves the credit for this wonderful creation. I am also posting a couple of others that we passed around. Have a great rest of the week!

Can you imagine the surprise on the persons face when they found this? I bet it made their whole day.
You and Gail did something special for someone- and they will never forget it. You touched hearts. That is what you and Gail do.
And you never expected that you would ever know their delight
(i just betcha)
