Handmade Pay it Forward

November 28, 2007 at 10:15 pm 5 comments

I will be the lucky recipient of a handmade present from Anna of SewGoodSewFar. She’s offering a Pay It Forward handmade exchange.

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first three people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I’m not sure what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 4 months) I promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

So leave a comment and help me to Pay It Forward!

Happy Crafting,


(P.S. Try the Cookie Challenge too. I’m a really good baker. I swear.)

    I’m honoured to be the first post for this PIF!! Money has been a little tight this holiday season, and I’ve already benefited from a PIF (a lovely necklace for my mom).. I’d love to join this exchange so that I can give back as well.

    I’m going to go add this post to my blog (ulixis.blogspot.com) right now. 🙂 Thank you so much!

    ps: I love you blog!
