Pay It Forward

I love presents, surprise parcels and handmade things, so this is going to be swell!

While spending some time blog-hopping, I ended up at Blue-J Cottage. This is a blog written by a lady who loves cats and sewing, like me. Only she's a lot better at sewing!

She also wrote a post about the Pay It Forward Handmade movement. It sounded like a fun thing to do, so I decided to participate. The concept is easy. If you find a Pay It Forward post, AND you blog, too, AND you are one of the first three commenters on the blog post that tells you about Pay It Forward, this blog owner will make something especially for you. I am very excited about this idea and wondering what Ms Blue-J Cottage is going to make for me!

Are you interested in joining Pay It Forward Handmade?

Here are the details:

1. Important! You have to have a blog.

2. I will make a little something for the first 3 blog owners who comment on this post. It will be a surprise and I will make it and send it to you some time during the next 365 days after you have commented.

3. Make sure you let me know your email address, so that I can get your contact details.

4. To get a handmade present from me, you have to play too! This means YOU pledge to send a little handmade something to 3 readers of your blog. It doesn't matter what you give, as long as it is handmade by you!

5. Once you comment here, you need to post about your Pay It Forward on your blog to keep the fun going - you can just copy the rules from me and please include the Pay It Forward badge in your post. Also, feel free to join the Flickr group to see what else is being sent!

6. Follow my blog. (That would be nice!)

Ideally, this will help all of us to get to know some fellow bloggers and to spread some handmade joy and cheer around. I sure am looking forward to reading my first 3 commenters' blogs and to deciding what to make you!

Yay! I have now found three people to craft for, so I closed the comments.  

Thank you, my three commenters!

If anybody is still interested in doing this, you can possibly still join at one of their blogs:
