Day 28 of RAOK for a Month

Today, I left a stress relief gift on the doorstep of the Chief Police of our town. :) I hope he likes and I hope he knows he is appreciated!! 

Ways to Decorate Envelopes for Happy Mail

Here a couple of pictures of ways to decorate envelopes for when you send happy mail! Decorating the envelope is just one more simple touch to happy mail that makes a perfect package to brighten anyone's day! :)

This is one of my favorites! You need a pencil and a ink pad. Easy, fun, cute!

For this one, I used my mini ink pads. The only thing with this one is you need to use a address label. But other than that, I love this one!

For this one, all you need is paper punch outs and adhesive. But you will need to tape them down so the shapes don't come off. And make sure you don't put them on too thick either.

I will post more ideas later! Have fun and go send happy mail!!!!

Day 24 of RAOK for a Month

I didn't do a "real" RAOK today in some people's eyes. But in my eyes, a random act of kindness doesn't have to be anything big. It doesn't have to be a physical gift for someone. It doesn't have to be something for a random stranger. But it can be as simple as saying hello and smiling. :) And today, I did just that with a little more! So remember, it doesn't have to big, it doesn't have to be random, it doesn't have to be anything physical, just something with love and kindness! :) It all counts! Now go smile and say "hi"!

Day 23 of RAOK for a Month

Today, we went to Devil's Lake State Park. It was a lot of fun! I didn't do anything today. But I want to thank the people who did. We went up hiking and we didn't really now where to go. And many times today we asked someone about directions on the trails, and they stopped and took the time to help us out! It was very helpful!! So thank you everyone! Here are some pictures I took! Enjoy! (They are not the best. Sorry...)

Day 22 of RAOK for a Month

Today, I smiled to everyone I could! It is so fun to smile and you may never know all the good that a simple smile can do! :)

Give Your Mailman a Gift.

I don't thing you can ever give your mailman too many gifts. Your mailman is a important part of your everyday life. Without your mailman, you would never receive any mail! :O That would be horrible! I cannot imagine my life without mail! I love receiving mail. As well as sending mail! Which you wouldn't be able do without your mailman again! :O So I think we all need to slow down and appreciate the people we take for granted. Which isn't just your mailman. It includes librarians, Fed-x and UPS drivers, and people working at your everyday stores! Take the time to do some small act of love for them. Please.

Day 12 of RAOK for a Month

Today as I promised, I did a few to make up for yesterday. 

I do laundry for our family and my dad always has a full basket of clothes. So when he unloads it, he makes sure to tell me he did! :) So today I found a note in his empty basket. :)

So, I decided to congratulate him with peanuts! His favorite! :)

I also gave a unexpected gift to a family with four boys! They are good friends so I wanted to do something fun for them! :)

I hope they have fun doing all the fun activities! 
Another two kids were here today. So I also gave them gifts! It is one of my favorite things to do! (If you were wondering...) :)
