Love tokens

I've been making these little cotton felt hearts, which I have dubbed, "Love Tokens".  (and i'm going to do a little tutorial at some point).I like to give them out to people I meet in public (strangers) who look like they are having a bad day or maybe they work one of those jobs that none of us want to do (like cleaning a public bathroom). Or I like to give them out if I received excellent customer service (a rarity these days!) 

I recently handed one to a toll booth attendant. She wasn't very friendly and you could tell she was just go through the same motions again and again (probably bored out of her mind, i get that.) When I handed it to her, I explained that I was giving it to her to let her know I appreciate her. She got the biggest smile on her face. It was fun to shock and surprise her. And hopefully it made a difference in her day. 

I'm getting ready to leave for 2 weeks (taking miss sophie with me) doing some teaching and traveling  to Nashville, TN (Art-is-You) and Saluda, NC (Random Arts) and I will hand these out along the way. When I stop at rest stops, I also like to put them in the return dispenser on candy/gumball machines!


  1. You are such a kind and nice person. I really appreciate you!. Have a great trip - so nice that you will have Sophie as your sidekick! I'm sure she will be a big hit. Can't wait to hear about your classes - wish I was going along with you.

  2. Looks really nice your post! :-) love the first pic, thanks for sharing!

  3. Kecia, I love this idea. I just posted it to one of my Pinterest boads and shared with my FB friends. TFS!

  4. Those are great! And you are too for trying to give someone a smile.
