Want to participate in this project?

All it takes are four tiny things:

  1. Make* a sign (no bigger than palm size, please) that contains an affirmation starting with “You are” on it. Many of them have been stitched, but feel free to get creative. People have also done things like painted rocks and made balloon roses!
  2. Tag: It’s up to you if you tag it with your @social_media_handle, but please tag the back of the sign with #yasvb.
  3. Place the sign somewhere in your city. On a window ledge. On a bus seat. Under the edge of a flower pot. In a change machine slot. Anywhere where they might be found by someone.
  4. Document! If you have your phone or camera on you, please take a photo and either post it on social media with the hashtag #yasvb or email me the photo(s) so I can share them!
  5. To see examples of what others have done, check on the #yasvb hashtag on Instagram!

* I have made kits to give to participants that include the instructions above, a palm-sized swatch of Aida cloth, a needle, thread in two or three colors (in lengths of about 1.5′) and a square piece of felt to be used as a back to the sign, which is ~0.5″ larger than the piece of Aida cloth.
