Pay it Forward

(does used hat with old broach= "home made"?)

my wonderful friend, gabi, at www.thefeastwithin.com got me started on this one. at christmastime i get a little over ambitious about crafty items--so i am happy to pay a few of them forward.

The commitment is this:

“I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, which is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

I love this idea of sharing handmade items in the spirit of just that- sharing something you’ve created with the only condition being the promise of those you’ve given to, to then share their talents with others and so on and so on…. yes!

So I am making the offer, as stated above, to the first three people who post a comment on this particular post. I’ll make you a handmade item and send it to you as soon as I can finish it- a the very least in the next 365 days and you just have to promise to make the same offer on your blog. Let’s Pay it Forward with in this tiny way!
I’m not sure who started it but it seems to be going strong- let’s keep it up!

    I proudly take the challenge... I loved the movie pay it forward, and since then have loved that idea. One of the most precious human beings on the planet gave me a very heart felt gift this year. The day that person gave the gift, I was asking my angels for some type of sign that my new home was the right decision, that I would in some way be able to make it feel like mine... then this dreamy individual called me only hours later and shared their gift like a new idea... "I have been thinking and thinking of how I would get you to accept this gift.." and proceeded to gift me something very precious that whenever I am enjoying my home, makes me feel comfie, and like the world and my angels are supporting me, not only figuratively, but literally holding me up! Thus-on this day I took the plunge... I was able to do a pay it forward day for a friend in December and it was one of the most rewarding days of my year! I take this challenge because crafts are harder for me.. i will be clever... and I will post on moonforest..
    Much love my fine, feather penned friend!
