I'm jumping in to the Pay it Forward Challenge.

Annie Jones, over at Real Life Living, is participating in the Pay It Forward Meme and posted an offer to send a specialized homemade gift to the first three people who responded to her post and asked for one.

I, of course, posted as soon as I saw this. I LOVE handmade things! I love free things! And I especially love surprises!! I will be getting my gift within the next 3 months, so don’t know what it will be.

Now it's my turn to Pay It Forward!
Here's How It Works:
The first three people to comment on this post (and this post only) will receive a handmade, or home made, item from me within three months, completely free of charge. I have some great readers and this is a great way for me to reward some of them. You don't get a set date, but just know that some day within the next three months, you'll receive a little surprise from me.
The Catch (of course there's a catch):
You agree to Pay It Forward yourself after you receive your gift from me. Or even before you receive it. Send a gift to the first three people who respond to your post. The gifts should be handmade, by you, and somehow personalized for that person. (I may not live up to the personalized challenge, but I will be sending something I make.)
Anyone up to the challenge??

Handmade cranberry almond bread!!!!!!!!! Oh...we can't choose? I did what you said not to and I had purply-red bread-yep popped the cranberries.

I'll be glad to pay it forward but I have no skills whatsoever. Oh wait! I got an idea.

Frances said...

LOL! Helene. Hmmm...I hadn't thought of sending baked goods....

Didn't the bread still taste delish?

If you will email me your mailing address, I will get to work on your gift. (my email link is in my profile)

This sounds like such a great idea. I'd love to participate as well. I'm doing a series on homemade Christmas gifts and they would be great for this.

Frances said...

Awesome, Tiffany! Thanks for playing!

I'll settle for the loving comments you left me today! It helped.

My son fried my computer at home and the laptop is not much better. I may be slow to respond but I am around
I will post my pay it forward thingy soon. Also I have an awesome giveaway I have yet to post.

Frances said...

Helene, I am sorry about your computer. What did your son do to it? Is it fixable?

If not, I have been seeing some pretty decent computer prices for back to school.

Can't wait to read about your give away! Thanks for coming to see me!
