So, here's the thing: I kind of like to think of myself as a big sugar cube in the coffee cup that is life.
And as such, I am constantly doing little things that I hope will make life just a little sweeter for people. I've left fake cupcakes around the city; I give people candy and cookies; I write little love notes. For no reason in particular, other than to bring joy and maybe a little everyday delight to the masses.
And on my recent trip to San Francisco, I employed sweet magnetism: I brought a stockpile of magnetic CakeSpy postcards, and stuck them to unsuspecting surfaces.
Each one had a sweet little note written on the back (I did this while on the plane). Wonder who found my sweet handiwork?
First, a sweet little note left on a post office box, just off of...you guessed it...TREAT STREET!
Then, after some reflection, I decided my art was museum-worthy, and so I stuck one to the sign at the Oakland Museum of California. My first solo exhibit!
Next, a sweet little offering on someone's entryway. What a sweet thing to come home to!
Howsabout finding one of these sweet little things on the side of your Vespa? (Note: there was a scratch on the side, so really, I was also providing a nice patch too).
But for those taking mass transit, I left this one on the Muni.
And then, in Santa Cruz, one was left like a prize on the espresso machine at Cafe Delmarette.
...and I also left one with Carolyn and Lindsey at the Twitter offices to do with as they pleased.
All said and done? I believe I made San Francisco just a little sweeter with this gentle street art. If you found one, I hope it made your day just a little sweeter--either that, or that the cuteness made you projectile vomit. Either/or.
