Hellooo??? Anyone in there????

Oh HI!!!  Yes, we’re definitely still here, but spring sprang all over Jazzbaby and I….

I’ve just been dusting things off a bit to get ready to give SpReAd the Love a little jumpstart, since lots of things have been happening on the kindness front.  A little further housekeeping is in order though, before we get to some new things…

book donationThe Children’s Book Challenge exceeded the fifty books to max out our anonymous donor’s matching cash donation pledge.  The funds were donated to Richard Armitage’s Just Giving page for Young Minds all the way back in March.  It is such a great experience to hear so many people talk about books that touched them and their desire to share that with a child.  Maybe I should build a “virtual library” page here with links to all our SpReAd the Love Children’s Book Challenge titles…future projects  🙂

Now, back to current events on the kindness front:

Over at Ancient Armitage, I am happy to report that I can still rely on the kindness of strangers to avert massive mortification

The recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal have moved Guylty to lend her creative genius to charitable works…check out the plans for a relief fund raising RAPS auction

And last but not least, a promised kindness from the mutual OOA on the doodle front…

With 2 days and 21 hours left, the “diddly doodle” in question should raise a nice amount for Neurofibromatosis Network.  As of this “press time”, the leading bid is $2125.  Click here if you’re ready to bid.

Tons of great stuff going on…watch this space in the next few weeks for a carnassial challenge to mark Richard Armitage’s debut on NBC’s Hannibal.  

As always, we are delighted to hear of SpReAding the Love with reports of any kindness given or received…click over to the ABOUT page and drop us a line!

spReAd the Love Gives Back Week 3: Lucas North

WOW…I mean *really* WOW!  Week 2 a la Guy of Gisborne was incredible.  The reports of kindnesses really do lift the spirits in an amazing ways – thanks to all who participated and congratulations again to the winner of the hand beaded by Jazzy bracelet:  zeesmuse!

For this week’s drawing, I tried my hand at a little jewelry making in honor of Lucas North.

Lovely Lucas Locket

Lovely Lucas Locket

This locket is fully reversible.  Filled with jewels reflecting Lucas’ baby blues, worn one way there is a tiny image of the spy himself.  Turned around, you can wear Lucas against your heart and show just his initial to the world. (A lobster claw clasp makes reversing the locket simple.)  I carried the cool blue color palette to the charms and added some I thought were representative of this character.  A tiny Big Ben symbolizes his return to England after years of imprisonment and the “Hope” charm is a remembrance of one tattoo…Dum spiro spero – “While I breathe, I hope.”

The locket is hung on an 18″ (45.72cm) silver finish chain.  I’ll also include in the package some spare beads and a necklace extenders case you prefer a bit longer chain.  I think that is all the pertinent details, so without further ado, in honor of the Lovely Lucas North, bring on the kindness reports!  Good luck!!

 

 

 

Can I get a drumroll please?

Jazz is out on the town this fine Friday evening, so she asked me to relay that after a duly secure selection from a hat, the kindness winner for this week IS:  Kitty!  Kitty is the new owner of an e-book copy of In Consequence written by Trudy Brasure.

Thanks to all who reported kindnesses this week – the world is a bit nicer because of your generosity of spirit!  Stay tuned for details on the new drawing for next week’s kindness reports.
