Project Sending Love

I started a blog last year called Project Sending Love…I didn’t keep it updated…lots of stuff was happening last year and I chalk it up to God telling me it just wasn’t the right thing at the right time.  BUT now is the right time…the right time for Project Sending Love to get going, the right time for Embracing Life, Love & Art to be what it is going to be, the right time to live fully…right here and right now.

From the Project Sending Love Blog:
I have been thinking of this project since 2008 when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. But things happened, life took over and I pushed this to the back too many times. I was re-diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer in March, 2011 and decided this is something too important to push back any longer.

After both diagnosis’s, I received the most heartfelt cards from friends and family. These cards were filled with words of love, kindness, joy, hope and prayers. I honestly think this love helped carry me through cancer with flying colors!

Why do we wait to tell each other how much we love one and other, how important someone is to us and what an impact the person makes on our lives and the world until a tragedy strikes?

What if we all started sharing the love, kindness, joy and prayers that we think about others in our hearts all the time with those we are thinking about? How special and important would they feel? How could that love for each other change the world? I am not sure, but I have to see.

It is easy to get caught up in the idea of “how” do I tell others that I love them, respect them, that they are very import to me, to the world. But the how is the easiest part – open your heart and love. You can’t run out of it and the more you give, the more you have to give and the more you get. Crazy little thing God gave us – the ability to love.

Sending Love is such a simple idea and even simpler to do: write your love for others down on a postcard and send it.

Here are some new designs I sent off yesterday for postcard printing.  I plan to roll Project Sending Love into this blog as well…let me know your thought…what you would like to see with PSL.

I will be updating my Etsy Shop as soon as I get the postcards in and wrapped up cute!
