Go with me here…since college, I have collected fortunes from fortune cookies. I keep thinking that I will find a use for them. Until then, they don’t take up much space, so I keep them.
I love to read these positive little statements. They make me dream of what I can be, not the doldrums of everyday. How can that hurt? Maybe that will challenge me to actually do more than I do.
My interest in fortune cookies goes back to elementary school. I was assigned the task of making fortune cookies for the class. I had a recipe from a magazine. The first couple went fine, but, in my memory, they are a bit like making crepes. It took more time than I thought it would to make the cookies, create the fortunes, and put it all together. I probably had to make 20 or 25. I have not made fortune cookies since that very long night. Sadly, I did not keep any of my fortunes from that project. I wonder what I wrote to my classmates?
A quick perusal of Pinterest ferrets out only two craft projects with fortune cookie fortunes: a photo mat covered in fortunes and a collage frame filled with fortunes. There are a couple of ideas of what to do with them, such as posting them on a rotating basis on your fridge or binding the collection in a notebook for review.
What is up? I love these little communiqués, so it looks like there could be more ways to work them into our daily lives.
So here goes. I just want to share a few. Obviously, I did not write these, so all credit goes to the fortune cookie purveyors…whoever they may be.
Bonus Information: While on Pinterest, look for funny fortunes. There are several strange and/or hilarious fortunes posted that people have found in their cookies. I don’t recall getting any weird ones, but maybe I should dig through mine to see.
