Pay It Forward 2011


      Pay it forward 2011: I promise something handmade to the FIRST 5 people who leave a comment here. However, to be eligible, you must repost this status, offering something handmade to 5 other people. The rules are that it must be handmade (or homemade) by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011. Ready, set, GO!

     I posted this on Facebook last week and have only had three takers. I think it intimidates non crafty people, they don't jump in because they feel they have nothing to offer. Well, believe me I just as happily accept your homemade lasagna or pepper jelly made from your garden's bounty as cards or a scarf. So since I didn't have 5 takers, I will offer it up here to not just 2 more but up to 5 commenters. Same rules apply, you must offer it up on your blog! Ready, Set, GO!


  1. I'd love to be included, please! I've seen something like this before, but was too slow lol....

    Will post my own offer on my blog in the next couple of days :-)

  2. you're in, Mel! By the way, you get link love and mention in my Friday post, it's about E100 :)

  3. Excellent, thank you very much - on both counts! :-)

  4. I took you up on it, and I am NOT crafty at all...as you know. However, I did have three takers and I'm almost finished with my first "gift." The way I felt about it was that if itch came to scratch I could make a "homemade" bookmark. As it is, I think it will be three scarves, but shhhhh! dont' tell! Thanks for the prompt! I love this idea!

  5. this is such a wonderful idea! It's been fun watching you posts it on facebook, who gets comments and who doesn't... unfortunately, I was one of the "no comment" receivers!

    I'd love to take you up on your offer, and I'm going to post this to my blog tomorrow.

  6. *yes, you were Jane! I think scarves are freat especially since I don't knit! That's what I am receioving from the friend I commented on :) Your secret is safe with me!

    *Cate - yay, happy to create something for you. I'm sure your blog will bring some takers :)


YOU ROCK! Seriously, I love getting comments, so know that you have put a bit of added sunshine in my day. Thanks so much and I hope your day is glorious!
