Pay it Forward!

I was visiting Sandy Babb’s Blog – Quill Cottage when I saw an interesting post entitled Pay It Forward. I was so intrigued by this idea; what did that mean? I even went to check out the post where Sandy had first seen this challenge; The Feathered Nest. Well, I love creating, especially when it brings a smile to someone's face, and so I decided to sign up in response to Sandy’s post!

Pay It Forward – This is how it works: I will make three small handcrafted items, one for each of the first three people who would also like to do this challenge and announce it on their blogs, thus paying it forward. The first three comments left on this post, expressing an interest to volunteer to take this challenge, will continue the deed of kindness and receive a gift from me!

~ November 1st: I have my 3 volunteers, thank you!!

To participate:

1. Comment on this post, expressing your wish to participate in ‘Pay it Forward’. I will contact the first three responders for your mailing address so I can send you your giftie. Make sure I have your email! If I can't contact you, I won't be able to include you : (

2. The first 3 to comment here who I can contact, will receive a little handmade gift from ME!

3. The first three who comment here will post this message on their own blog, and offer three more small gifts, handmade by them. You will be making one gift for each of the first three people who comment on your post, who in turn will go ahead and announce this idea on their blog and then make gifts for the first three people that sign up with them!

~ On & on the cycle continues . . . . . everyone has fun - plus there is beautiful art to enjoy & display in your home and cool mail to anticipate and open!

I hope that you will join me in spreading a little handmade love! Now to get busy & make 3 Little gifts! : )

Creatively Yours : ) Lenna
