We make – to give a smile
“Make something and leave it somewhere public – somewhere it might be found. Something not too grand or careful, but honest and perhaps lovely. When you’re creating it, think about one person happening upon it. Make them a message. If you enjoy this feeling of caring about something without feeling precious about it, do it again.” (Quote by Amanda Happé, A Big Important Art Book, Danielle Krysa.)
We do this every Christmas – to smile people into smiling – even though we leave before they arrive.
