A few years ago, two blog-reading sisters came across one of the posts I wrote as a Guest Mom on DesignMom.com and paid me a visit. They’d began following my blog and told me of a beautiful idea they’d been developing- a simple and unique way to say “thank you” to someone for a simple act of thoughtfulness. The idea evolved into a tangible token carrying a message of gratitude that could be shared not only with another person, but with the world- Pocket Wishes were born.Lisa and Cristin hired me to design the Wishes In My Pocket logo and a reverse side image for the 1-1/2″ wooden coins that could be shared over and over again, all around the world. The coins can be purchased online, and when one is given as a thank-you, the recipient can then pass it along to someone else. But here’s the most fabulous part, the giver and the recipient can both go to the Wishes In My Pocket website and share their story with the world. Just think how far one little token can reach!Can you believe how feel-good this whole idea is?! Imagine how excited I am to have been a part of its beginning. Now, with their new website up and running, it’s time to get this party started! Lisa and Cristen of Wishes In My Pocket are giving away half-dozen sets of Pocket Wishes to TEN lucky JSIM readers!
