Pay It Forward...

You all know that I'm more than a little bit pokey--but this is a fantastic idea that I discovered over at Pinch My Salt. I have stolen her words verbatim--because she did such a lovely job explaining it all. :)

Now--who wants to play?

I am participating in Pay it Forward - The Blog Edition. Here’s how it works: I will send handmade gifts to the first three people who leave a comment and tell me they are interested in playing. In order to play, you must have your own blog (doesn’t have to be a food blog) and you must continue to ‘pay it forward’ by promising the same thing to your readers.

Now, as far as the handmade gifts go, I don’t know yet what they will be. I also don’t know when I’ll get them sent. You may not receive the gift tomorrow or next week, but I do promise that it will get to you within the next 365 days! Sound good? I think it sounds great!

Remember, I will be choosing the first three people who respond by leaving a comment on this blog post. The requirements are that you have your own blog and are willing to send out three of your own homemade gifts (whatever you want to make, no rules or limitations here).

I am willing to ship my gifts anywhere in the world, so everyone is eligible to participate regardless of what country you are blogging from! Just please make sure you leave a valid e-mail address so I can contact you for shipping information.


p.s. even if you don't want to participate in the Pay It Forward gift exchange, drop me a line with your snail-mail addy and I'll send you a holiday card. I'm a stationery whore with a monster card collection--I don't generally get around to sending them out in RL, so I may as well send them to my virtual friends! :) Leave your info in the comments, or to the email addy posted in the sidebar. :)

  • Don't send me nothing (but thanks for the offer). I found something on another blog this morning, though that you might be interested in as well (you too princess), stop on by and have a look at "The pseudo-Political Organization That Stole Christmas" (or whatever I titled the post today).

  • Yeah, why the hell not. I know I won't have to make but one gift. And you might not respond anyway, so by saying that I'll participate might mean that I still end up with nothing to do. I know that's not exactly Paying it Forward, but what can I say?
