*** This project is on hiatus until after I finish grad school. I have a few pieces to make and send (and I will do that for sure), so please be patient if you requested one that hasn’t gone out yet. I’ll get the ball rolling on this again sometime after May 2011. ****
In the comment field below, type a positive message for someone, the name of the person needing the message, and your own name. I will embroider all of this and send it to the recipient.
These things are absolutely essential:
1 – Keep it positive. Yes, sometimes people need a kick in the pants, but this is not the forum for that.
2 – Keep it short. Use Twitter as your guide and keep sayings to 140 characters or less.
3 – Include your own name and the name of the person you’d like to receive your message. Please also include your e-mail address so I can reach you later (I promise these will not be sold and will not appear on the comments page for others to see).
4 – Keep it specific. If I receive more than three requests for a particular message, I’ll retire it. Or maybe I’ll make a bunch of them and sell them on Etsy. We’ll see if it comes to that.
I will contact you via e-mail so I can get the address of your recipient. Please don’t request an object for yourself–this is about spreading the love. If you want a piece have someone request a phrase for you.
One more thing: this is an entirely free service. Well, free to you. If you like the project and would like to help me defer my costs, feel free to donate through the PayPal link below. (But, again, there is no charge for these messages. Donate only if you really want to.)
