My assignment was right up my crafty alley – spend $20 on ConsumerCrafts.com in order to make something to give away this holiday season for Random Acts of Kindness. I spent a good hour combing over the site and found these jumbo paper mache hearts – just singing out to be painted! I decorated them three different ways because the hearts are roomy and hollow inside. See more about the Consumer Crafts RAOK campaign here!
This is what I plan to do with my Happiness Hearts. Once a month for a week, I stay in Fresno/Clovis, CA for a week for my job at iLovetoCreate. Fresno and Clovis are like my second homes! I love the people there, the ones who I see every time – the airport attendants, the hotel clerks, the movie theatre ticket window girl who watches all of my YouTube videos! I’m going to give each of them one of my Happiness Hearts to thank them for making this visitor feel welcome and wanted! Here’s how I made the hearts:
I used a craft knife to cut the heart out of the front.
Next, I painted them in bright colors!
Then I used Tacky Glue to seal the picture. I also add a layer of glue on the top of the picture so when I glaze it, it will look nice and shiny!
I then added painted and glittered details and sealed it all under spray varnish!
Special thanks to ConsumerCrafts (check them out for supplies at super low prices!) and Blueprint Social for inviting me to be a part of this campaign. You can never have too much kindness in this world and I’m happy to spread it far and wide!

Love & light,
