Creative Goodness on the Move Again Downunder

The past month has been quite the adventure for our Random Acts of Art pouch, currently traveling in Australia for stops #41-44.  After almost a month in delivery transit from Queensland to New South Wales, the creative goodness safely arrived to Fiona in Sydney- Whew!Creative Goodness on the Move Again Downunder: Random Acts of Art Adventure | 6 Degrees of Creativity BlogIt was such a relief to see Fiona’s photo of the pouch and know it was received OK and finally in her creative hands!

Creative Goodness on the Move Again Downunder: Random Acts of Art Adventure | 6 Degrees of Creativity BlogInspired by the intention of this project, Fiona worked on a series of Permission Cards that she intended to leave in places around her neighborhood (!):

This week the Random Acts of Art Adventure started its travels to Sarah in Woodford, NSW for stop #43.  Sending good thoughts for a smooth arrival!

Creative Goodness on the Move Again Downunder: Random Acts of Art Adventure | 6 Degrees of Creativity BlogThank you to Shana and Fiona for all their helpful support and patience throughout the last month as we awaited with fingers crossed for a successful delivery.  This project continues to deliver in so many ways- not just in art, kindness & creativity, but the in power of faith and trusting the process as the pouch goes along in its route.

I am grateful to see this adventure keep going and all the creative goodness it continues to inspire -Yay! There are a couple of stops left in Australia before heading to New Zealand, where the international tour of this project will then end. Wow!  I am excited to keep sharing new travel updates as the pouch artfully journeys from place to place.   🙂
