Pay it Forward 2011

Photo found here

While doing my daily blog reading on Sunday, I came across nette's post called Something for the heart: Pay it Forward 2011. The whole idea sounds fun because I love making handmade gifts in hopes that the work I put in will make someones day just a little more bright.

This is how it works:
The first five people who comment on this blog post will receive a handmade gift from me.
The only requirement in return, you must FIRST write a blog post explaining 'Pay It Forward 2011'.
Then, about the most exciting part, make and send a handmade gift to the first 5 visitors who comment and commit to do the same.
Don't worry about time. You don't need to send them all today or tomorrow.
Gifts from the heart take time and are worth waiting for!


  1. Being up super early kicking myself over not buying dang insurance for my new iPhone, I need to re-center on what's important in life. Give me a kick in the pants to get back in touch with that! I've been getting so caught up in the "little" things that I'm forgetting the big things that really matter.

  2. Wooo!

    I have heard of this before and it makes me happy to see it kicking up in the sewing blog world.

  3. This is such a great project! I love the idea of sending handmade surprises around the world to like-minded people!
