This project has been in the back of my mind for about a month now, and today seems like an appropriate day to spread some warmth and love around to others!
When I was a new mother I was overwhelmed to say the least. That's just my nature! I specifically remember shopping with my newborn one cool, spring day. I was walking back to my car, head down, brisk pace, I wanted to get my daughter in the car because it was cold. I can't imagine that anything about my facial expression or posture was welcoming.
That's when I heard a man call out behind me. I almost kept walking, but then wondered if I dropped something. When I turned around, he handed me a rose and told me to have a great day. He then continued handing out roses from the bouquet he just bought to others in the parking lot.
Such a simple gesture, but one I know that I will always remember! Being kind and lifting someones mood doesn't always take something big. Sometimes it can be something surprisingly simple.
Before I started blogger, I sold at craft sales. I have since given up craft sales, but I have a lot of inventory left over! Now, I know there are many worthy charities that I could also donate to, but instead I have decided to start the Yarn it Forward initiative. I think that sometimes we are all in need of a pick me up!
Am I allowed to start my own initiative? I have no idea! But basically, here is how it works.
- I'm going to leave random yarn presents around town with a tag to tell the recipient they can take it.
If you are able to spare some extra projects and want to join me in my #yarnitforward project I would love it! I would also love to see it! Tag me with #leftinknots and #yarnitforward when you share your photos on social media :)
Let's share the yarn love everyone!
