The lovely and talented Susan K Weckesser started this campaign after her father died of cancer. It's a way to remind us that small kindnesses have big impact. She's created a beautiful stamp you can purchase for $3.00 to create art you can share with others, the proceeds from the stamp benefit The American Cancer Society. PLUS you can share your art to win prizes AND throughout the campaign, there will be random unannounced surprise contests and giveaways. All you have to do is follow the Christmas Love Campaign on Facebook, check Susan's My Sweet Earth blog daily and follow her on Twitter for updates.
The Mission: Create something (anything crafty),cards, sewing, editable art, beads, you name it, and then give it to someone. ANYONE....even a TOTAL STRANGER! Then TAKE a picture of what you have created. GO over to to the CHRISTMAS LOVE CAMPAIGN Facebook page. Upload your picture. SHARE your Christmas Love Story.
I've written a short essay you can find on Susan's blog today! And in the spirit of GIVING here is my gift for you, gentle reader...you are cordially invited to download this permission free holiday image from my ephemera collection for your creations. If you do use it, share a picture with me and I'll share it here! I only ask that you don't sell this image, but you are free to sell anything you create with it.
Life is short, be sparkly!
