Pay It Forward 2011

I came across this while I was browsing over at Littlesnippets Blog (she has some really beautiful handmade items). I thought it sounded like fun and a great way to share our creations. So I signed up there and am offering it to you here. 

In addition, I entered Corry's blog candy at Fancy Free 4 Ever by creating a card for her sketch. I didn't win the candy, but Corry decided to send out a package to all who submitted a card! She asked us to Pay It Forward.

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the 1st 5 people who leave a comment here.  They must, in turn, post this, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:

1.  Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.

3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.

4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

Thanks for stopping by!
