Pay It Forward

February 10, 2011

Take your shoes off, have a seat and stay awhile. Is there anything I can do for you?

The wonderfully talented Penny Neal from Nothing Worth Stealing posted the “Pay It Forward” challenge a few weeks ago, and I knew immediately I wanted to participate. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I thought now would be a good time to post my “Pay It Forward” challenge.

The Concept: “Pay it forward” is the idea that random acts of kindness are given without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill , that’s what this is about. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect with our fellow crafters, artists, readers, friends etc. to network, if you will, and to share our enjoyment of crafting instead of just keeping it to ourselves or where only friends and family get to see it.

How it works: You’ll have to comment on this post and the first three people who comment will receive a handmade gift from me within the next few months. But those three people will also have to post the idea on their blog (or Facebook for those of you who might like to participate but who don’t blog!) and commit to making a gift for the first three people who comment and so on and so forth.
 
So, the first three people to comment here will get something handmade by me (an illustration of some sort), but you have to do this on your blog, Facebook, etc. as well. I’ll be checking to make sure that you have posted about your “Pay it Forward!”   

Please keep it going and comment on this, and then pay it forward three times!
