Pay It Forward

I love this concept. I won't tell you how long it took me to get it. I knew what to do but I didn't know why you called it that. Then when explaining Pay Backs to my little kids it all dawned on me and the wording quit messing with me. (no I'm not slow just preoccupied most of the time). I had been doing it all my life but had been calling it "being nice." It is what my mom told me to do so I did it.

I like Pay It Forward too as a mom because you are really Teaching others how to doing selfless things for still others. It is marvelous.

I read about doing it through blogs over at Starla's Blog. She is my Christmas Traditions Swap partner. I am so excited and nervous about what I am sending her. We are from very different places. Anyway, on to how the game is played .....

Here's how it goes:I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward 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. The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. So, if you're one of the first 3 people to comment, copy and paste the above paragraph on your blog and share the crafty love!

I do need to be able to get a hold of you somehow. If I can't get you for some reason I will choose the next person. You need to post here and then Post this Exchange on your blog and I will contact you.

**** Edited to Add ********
If you missed out on this (because you are not one of the first three) you can still get in on the action at my sister Jeanne's Blog or my niece Angelic's Blog. They both have wicked mad crafting skillz.

Oh, I'd love to play, can I, even though I won a great giveaway (love my apron!) a little while ago? :0) You can say no, and skip me, I'll still think you're nice...

Lucy, send anyone you can't choose my way or Jeanne's way! ;) Thanks!

What a neat idea! I was just over here looking forward to comparing laundry soap recipes.
(Definitely leave me out of the list of gift recipients. I don't have enough craftiness going on to be able to pay it forward! Someday I will...)
:D
