The first time I went to the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago, I met the friend of a friend of a friend. Sarah Neuburger, the artist behind The Small Object. She makes lots of limited addition small things, one more inspiring than the next. What struck me the most that day, was a little wooden post card screened with a day brightening image. I knew I wouldn't want to part with it and so I hatched a plan.
This sweet little postcard moves through our house, hidden in secret spots where, eventually, it will be found. The recipient then hides it for a brother, sister, mother or father and the game continues.
It's become a fun little thing to do and a nice way to say "I love you". Times come and go where our little "I love you" gets lost in the shuffle as sometimes I love yous do. Then one day, when we least expect it, someone find it in an apron pocket or back of a drawer and off it goes again.
I hope this will be one of those great little memories my kids share after I am gone. Wouldn't it be wonderful it they continued this tradition - wherever they may be?
