Pay It Forward

There is a great idea floating about lately and here's the drill:

I promise to send the first 3 persons who comment in this post something hand made before the end of this year. (Thank you to whoever came up with that rule!) Yup, something fabulous from little 'ol me! Maybe cards, maybe "doodle stitching", or who knows? But definitely hand made! And received before this time next year. Oh the mystery! What will it be?

Here's the rub: If you sign up to receive a hand made gift you need to "pay it forward" on your own blog. That is, you'll make a post similar to this and then promise and hand make a gift for three other bloggers. The gift that you send to your 3 friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember it’s the spirit and the thought that count! C'mon, an-y-thing home made by you within the year! You can do this! How fun!

So o.k. comment away!

Thanks Chrystal for this fun idea! (Sorry I misspelled your name in my comment!)

Yeah, I'm in. Can I do it if I already did it with my sister? If not then the next one can have my spot. I love the pay it forward idea!! Your awesome Mindi!

Ashlee, I decree that there is no limit to the amount of times you can "pay it forward". So Joy, Heidi and Ashlee it is. Yeah!
