Some Bunny Thinks You Shine
Even after all these months, there is still a sense of satisfaction that comes from carving time out of my busy month to spread shine in someone else's corner of the world.
No matter which household item we are challenged to use or the form it ends up taking at month's end, the very act of completing a Shineworks Project makes the whole month feel more worthwhile.
Sometimes the projects are big undertakings – like when I used old tuna cans to give away wishes at a public fountain. Or like the time I used clothes pins to spread the Shine message at a local Starbucks.
But then other times the message feels like it ought to be smaller and more personal.
That's what happened in March.
In March the challenge was to somehow use an old flower vase to perform a random act of kindness for someone else. I immediately decided the children of our dear family friends would be the object of my Shineworks Project.
And since Easter fell in March this year, it was the perfect source of my inspiration.
I used tissue paper, Mod Podge, foam, and pipe cleaners to turn them into cheerful bunnies and then stuffed them with treat-filled eggs. And a carrot stick that reads, “Some bunny thinks you shine“
And white pillar candles at the very bottom, because as cute as they are as Easter containers, they were actually designed to be Easter luminaries.
Next up is April. And while I already have an idea of who the recipient of this month's project is going to be, I have NO idea how I might use this month's item – a HANGER!
