a project, a do-good feel

Last night I indulged in Amelie, a french movie about a lonely girl who does good deeds for others anonymously.
I thought, how nice if we could have this on our mind more often.
I think my Valentine's day cards will fulfill my do-good-er desire.
Painting them by hand allowed me to personalize them and make them special. It was fun, so I made extras to send to people I might not normally wish a Happy Valentine's.
This artistic activity also stirred up my juices... might I try to make cards for every occasion? could I get paid to do this?
Feb 3- painting valentines
Truth is, when I get a job, my efforts will be focused there, and so making cards could become a chore. So, I will try to not think too far ahead, and instead, enjoy my little successes, no matter how small.
