Pay It Forward

After seeing this idea floating around here in blogland the last couple of days
I've decided to join in on the fun.
I'm participating in Forever and Ever house's PIF
and in return I'm offering three of you guys
the chance to participate in mine!
Here's how it goes:
I will send a handmade gift to 3 people
who leave a comment on this post requesting to join this PIF exchange.
Leave a comment by Sunday evening
and I will put all the names in a hat
and draw the names on Monday.
I don’t know what I will make for you yet
and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week,
but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise!
If I draw your name,
the only thing you have to do in return
is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

It's just a little bit of fun
and a small act of kindness
that might not change the world,
but it might bring a smile to your face
on a day when you need a hug from a friend. <3

"I do not pretend to give such a Sum; I only lend it to you. When you [...] meet with another honest Man in similar Distress, you must pay me by lending this Sum to him; enjoining him to discharge the Debt by a like operation, when he shall be able, and shall meet with another opportunity. I hope it may thus go thro' many hands, before it meets with a Knave that will stop its Progress. This is a trick of mine for doing a deal of good with a little money." -- Benjamin Franklin

Who knows what you'll find awaiting in your mail box?

a knitted scarf...

a fun purse...

a pillow for your little girl's room...

an apron...

a pillowslip...

Oh the possibilities! :)

Oh, this is such a lovely idea - one we should all put to work more in day to day life! Count me in and I can't wait to see who gets to pay it forward...
Thanks Fairlight!

Hello! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and signing up for Pay it Forward. I was just at your other blog and left a lengthy message about that so I won't repeat myself here.

However, I must say that I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blogs. My goodness....and your kids are cute too....and you take awesome pictures!! I can't wait to do your scrapbook!

Love this idea...goes with the thought i have been having of doing some "giving-away" on my little bloggity-blog. Count me in!

I would LOVE to be a part of that!! What a fantastic idea for just being generally nice AND to introduce everyone's crafty/artsy-ness to the rest of the world!


PS Do you have patterns to make your aprons? I would love to know where you got them!
