Pay-It-Forward


This is now CLOSED. Thanks to everyone who joined in.

I can hardly contain the excitement I feel right now. Finally, my chance to give some things away and I’m thrilled. I love having fun, and for me giving is just that, fun! Suzanne, over at Shabby Chicks, is having a Pay-It-Forward, and I was lucky enough to leave her 3rd comment. This is great as it allows me to give some things away while meeting new people, making new friends and staying in touch with friends I have now. It’s also exciting because I’ll be getting a handmade gift from Suzanne through her Pay-It-Forward event.

Here's how it works. The first three bloggers to leave a comment on this post will get a handmade gift from me, yours truly, some time this year! It could be anything, and at any time. That's part of the fun, it's just a little something in the mail from me to you, out of the blue.

Here is how you pay it forward: You, the lucky first three to comment, then post this on your blog so that three people can leave you a comment and in return you send them a handmade gift! Include a link back to me in the post. The gift needs to be handmade by you! The gift can be any price you want and has to be sent out some time this year! You might want to send it out earlier before you forget it completely, and because your recipient is probably anxiously awaiting it‘s arrival. Remember it is the thought that counts! When you receive your gift make sure you blog about it. Play nice. Who wants to pay it forward? Who will be the first three lucky bloggers to leave a comment and receive fabulous handmade gift from me? Have fun!

NOTE: This is to let you know that if you want to pay-it forward or participate in another fun giveaway down the road, and three comments have already been posted, go ahead and leave a comment anyway. If enough are interested I will be holding another fun event. For my first three people commenting, you do not have to add this to your pay-it-forward. This is just an extra fun thing I am wanting to do.

this looks like fun! your blog looks great!! and your template and colors are beautiful!!!! i think you're doing very well! part of the fun is just jumping off and enjoying the ride..for me it was a huge awakening to realize that i was still okie dokie even if i goofed up my blog, or a piece of work, or the famous "oh, dear, that photo looks terrible to me today" syndrome which requires (or not) you to find a better one!!

i'm signing up to follow you and will pop back to see about the pay-it-forward info!!

cheers!
