Pay It Forward

I came across a blog tonight with a "Pay It Forward Challenge", I liked the idea so I got on board. This is a great way to bless others with a surprise in their mail--using your time, energy and love.

Here are the rules:
  • The first 3 bloggers to leave a comment on this post will receive a handmade item from me.
  • Those 3 bloggers promise to post this challenge on their blog (meaning they too will "pay it forward", creating a handmade gift for the first 3 bloggers that leave a comment on their blog.) That's a lot of handmade love being passed around!
  • The gift can be any price range - though I'm thinking that keeping it small will be sufficient.
  • You have 365 days to make/ship your gift. So, the person receiving this will definitely be surprised when a package shows up unexpectedly in their mailbox. As you can see, if everyone cooperates and "pays it forward" this spreading of love could go on for a very long time.
  • If you want to participate, just leave a comment telling me so and then repost this on your blog so that you can "pay it forward" to 3 others, and so on, and so on, and so on...
  • You can still leave a comment on what you think about this even if you don't want to participate. I'm anxious to see who the first 3 will be who want to participate in this venture of spreading our love for one another.

I send you the gift, and you in turn send it to three people, then they each send to three people...thanks for joining in. You can email me your address at Love the blog I will keep reading to try and get an idea of what you might like.
Have a Great Day!
