RAK's across Canada



If you have been following along my blog, you will recall I had an idea I was working on.  I am pleased to say that my plan is ready to be put into action.  For those of you just stopping by, here's a brief recap.  I have recently started a program I call Random Art of Kindness, or RAK's for short.  RAK's are small pieces of art, either ATC or Postcard size, left in various places for people to find, take home and enjoy.  It's something I like to do to spread a little joy and happiness into the universe.  So far I have placed 9 ATC sized RAK's across Ontario.  I'm hoping that other artists might be inspired to do the same and link up with me as we spread RAK's around the world. 

I want to branch out a bit, and spread the word, however, it's slow going.  So if you are willing and you blog, I would be very greatful if you grabbed my button, and spread the word, bird!

Okay, now my plan!  My goal is to send my RAK's across Canada, one RAK to each province and territory, 13 in all!  So, I am putting out a call to action on Facebook for people to help.  They can either nominate people to send these RAKs to through the mail or they can volunteer to receive a RAK and place it Randomly in their province.   First come first serve, until I have recipients in each province or territory.  The are only two rules.  Rule one is that I cannot know the person the RAK is being sent too if being sent directly to a person.  (trying to keep the Random in there somehow)  Rule number two, is that if the request is to place the RAK, then the volunteer must document via photo, where they have placed the RAK and allow me to post the photo on my blog.   I'm hoping that if I am able to successfully send RAK's across Canada, I might open it up to the US and try for all 50 states! Or is there 51... I can never remember...  Anyway, I'm off to gather willing victims!  Wish me luck!

Stay Safe, and Love Yourself,


  1. What a great blog! Thanks for the invite :)I´ll spend some time enjoying your posts. And the RAK idea is fab!!

  2. I love your idea when you spread as far as Australia let me know :) Love the doodles its something that I have been playing with as I think it adds so much to my journal pages..

  3. Love your fabulous tangle cards. What a great idea as well.

  4. I love the botanical feel of your Zentangle ATC's. I'm sure that anyone that finds one will treasure it. I belong to a group called Art Abandonment (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ArtAbandonment/), which was established by Michael DeMeng. I think it's a great way to spread the love of art. Blessings!

  5. I love your idea of Random ART of Kindness and will be working on a post to highlight this on my blog (I will let you know when I post it, too). I have been wanting to do ATC for awhile but this seems so much more meaningful to me. I am going to do it!
    By the way, there are 50 states in the U.S I happen to live in Tennessee!
    Have a wonderful day and I'll be in touch :-)

    1. Awesome can't wait to hear from you Dawn, and thanks for the geo lesson! Tennessee is a great state! Such great hospitality down south!

  6. Love your little RAKS and that is such a fun idea!

  7. What a lovely idea! I may well get in on this over here in the UK once the dust has settled a little more on my recent house move!
