Pay It Forward

I have joined up to Pay It Forward on Khris's blog. What a great idea!

This is how it works: It's the Pay It Forward exchange, based on the concept of the movie "Pay It Forward", where acts of kindness are done without expecting anything in return, just passing it on, hoping that the recipients will do the same and pay it forward, like a never ending chain of kindness...

How to proceed: I will make and send a handmade gift for the first 3 people who post a comment to this post, requesting to join this exchange, and promising to pay it forward to 3 other persons, who in turn continue to pay it forward to 3 more, etc. 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 6 months.

What YOU have to do in return: Pay it forward by making the same announcement and promise on YOUR blog."I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange.

A confession here: I actually joined up a little while ago, and have received my PIF gift from Khris. This is what she made for me -

... a lovely needleholder and a little covered notebook, and they were wrapped in a fat quarter of 1930's fabric tied with ric rac - thank you Khris.
