Pay It Forward!!!

I read this post this afternoon on This is the Crafty One’s blog and I thought that it was a fantastic idea. I haven’t had anything great and exciting in my mailbox since I was kid! Besides this idea really does give us a chance to communicate with each other outside of the cyber world! So I pretty much stole her blog post and I am sharing it with all of you. I hope you all decide to Pay It Forward as well!

I was also one of the first people to respond on This is the Crafty One’s blog so I will be looking forward to receiving a gift from her within the year. 🙂

I will send a surprise gift to the first 3 people to comment on this post.  This gift will be made by me and I will send it sometime within the next year.  Exactly when you will receive it will be a surprise ( it will probably be a surprise to me too).

Of course there are some rules in this game.  Here it goes:

1.  I will make a little something for the first 3 people who comment on this post.  It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time in the next 365 days (yes, a year).

2.  To sign up to receive a gift from me you must play along too.  Share the giving love on your blog by promising to send a handmade goodie to the first three people who comment on your blog post.

3.  You must have a blog.

4.  After commenting on my post, you have to post this (or similar) on your blog to spread the love.  If you haven’t posted in 48 hours then the next commenter will be chosen.

If you want to join in just comment below and if you’re on of the first three I’ll send you something before the end of August next year!

Can’t wait to hear from you!

    Elizabeth, I did something similar in year 2011. There was a Pay It Forward post on Facebook. I did it. What a wonderful feel to be able to surprise a reader with a special gift. Just so you know it did take me a while to create the gifts. I wish I had a blog to repost this on, but I don’t. I think the three individuals that post on this board will truly receive something special from you. Good Luck!

      Hi Nancy, I am sure that it will take me some time as well but I think it truly is a wonderful way for us to communicate with each other as crafter’s and not just through cyber space. Please email me your address so that I can start making your gift. You never know you just might get it before Christmas! My email link can be found on all of my posts on the right hand side. By the way maybe it’s a good time for you start a blog 🙂

    Oh my gosh! This is a totally cool idea! My only issue would be forgetting to send those gifts out to the 3 first commenters because of the time frame involved but then again, the recipient would probably forget about it, too and be totally surprised when a special gift arrives for them. How nice that would be! May have to do this!

      Hi Carol, That is hilarious lucky for you I won’t forget to send you a gift! So don’t forget to email me your address so that I can mail you out a gift as you are the second person to comment on my post!!! I am really looking forward to making these gifts. I have to get plotting and figure out what I am going to make. Thank you for commenting!

    Beth~I am so sorry I haven’t responded but my MIL has been quite ill and we are just waiting. That’s all that has been on my mind. I will get to this right now as far as posting it on my blog and send you my address while I’m at it!
