INTRODUCTION

Thank you for taking the time to visit the 'Yesterday, I thought of you' project. Through a free art initiative, we'd like to see more people sharing ideas, creativity and personal, hand-written moments.


WHAT IS IT?
A way of being creative and making someone happy.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Grab your free art postcards by dropping us a line or, alternatively, make your own!

THEN WHAT? WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?!
The world is becoming fragmented, insular, digital. When was the last time you received a hand-written letter? Or a secret admirer left you a gift? Or you said hello to your neighbour over the fence?

This is your chance to make someone happy, to add a little wonder to their world, or to tell a secret to someone you'll never meet. Be outrageous, be sweet, be angry or sad, be poetic, fictional or honest, be whatever you want, because it is beautiful to be you.

Then leave your card in a pub or cafe, let it blow away on the beach, or tuck it into a crack in a wall. Leave a message and a piece of yourself. Leave some warmth and wonder in the world.

WHAT TO DO:
a) Choose your postcard
b) Write a message. You can start with 'Yesterday, I thought of you and...' or find your own path. There are no limits - add a picture, a sticker, a small gift, something handmade, whatever.
c) Find a public place to drop your postcard.
d) Remember to photograph it in situ, and send the photograph to:

lauren(dot)tomczak(at)yahoo(dot)com(dot)au

Images will be posted here (you can remain anonymous if you like!)
