Pay It Forward- What a great Idea !


A simple concept. It's sort of a random acts of kindness sort of thing. Apparently it has been fliting around the blog-o-sphere for some time - but as usual I am late on the uptake ! The first three people to leave a comment on my blog, telling me that they too will Pay It Forward will get a handmade gift from me. In return, you agree to post the "Pay It Forward" message on your blog, and do the same for the first three people who comment on yours. I am carrying on this blog tradition thanks to Gunnel.

I will send a handmade gift of fabric, an art card or something else special -to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog and join this 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 six months! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. I will need mailing addresses and will let you know that you have "won"....so please be sure that you leave me an email address. I hope that you will all consider this Pay It Forward challenge. It seems like a wonderful idea for those of us who read each others blogs and are able to have a little window into the lives of people who could, if they were closer, so easily be our friends ! I never thought that I would enjoy blogging so much but I have "met" some wonderful people this way. Blogging has helped me overcome some "web paranoia" and has also allowed me to "get to know" some wonderful people.

I have seen this on several blogs and have been trying to find out how to become involved - I think it's a wonderful idea and - yes - I would like to be involved!

Oh, Marie, I've not yet published to my blog...maybe this will be enough to prompt me to do so ASAP. (I know, I'm a Luddite. Or lazy. Or distracted. Your choice!)

I read your blog religiously and take such inspiration from everything you do....
sending hugs,
