Pay it Forward

Okay, I saw this post on my sis-in-law's blog and thought it sounded like fun. When I saw that I had 365 days to actually do it I figured it was totally do-able. I'm so excited to make something!! I already have a couple of ideas!

{The Rules}

1. Be one of the first THREE bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me - something crafty or yummy, who knows?!

2. Winners must post this challenge on your blog, meaning that you will Pay It Forward, creating a handmade gift -anything!- for the first THREE bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!

3. The gift that you send to your 3 Friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember: It’s the Spirit and the Thought That Count!

4. When you receive your gift, please feel free to blog about it, sharing appropriate Linky Love! If you are not one of the Top Three Commenters on this post, you can still play along. Go ahead and start your own Pay It Forward chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same! SO, REMEMBER...Pay it forward!

P.S. If you are one of the first three and don't have a blog to post on I have come up with a wonderful idea. Take the next three friends that call you just to chat and Pay It Forward to them! Then challenge them to do the same :)

Let's help make this a wonderful world to live in and show our friends how much we care for them :)

Sounds interesting. I am almost afraid that I am the first to leave a comment.

Lew said...

Yea!! I'm second...can't wait!

I'm third on Lew's blog . . . so don't count me as the third on yours. Let number four get the love. But it's a great idea, and I'm in.

Sweet, I'm in fourth place - I request a foot rub.

Okay, so I will also take the next commenter. (Don't worry- I'll do something special for the hubby too). Like he has to blog for lovin'. Nice. But I will point out there is nothing in the type, anywhere, that says you can request what you want from me.

Ry said...

Yes! me again - 2 for 1 special.

Destinee said...

Aaahh! What have I started here. Hey babe, how 'bout you turn off your computer funny guy and meet me on the couch!

p.s. I will take the next commenter who is NOT my husband.

We're off to watch a movie together now. Or sleep through one at the very least.

How about your uncle? Can he get in on a free homemade item? I figured you would have your three by now but since you don't I will jump in here. I might have to enlist my wife's help with the homemade item but I have plenty of time to get it done.

Oh man, I was one comment too late!!! What a great idea!!

I was second on Chastity's blog so you can take me off your list and give it to Melissa instead. I was going to send out 6 items instead of 3 since I signed in on yours and Chastity's so this way I will only have to make 3 if anyone comments on my blog.
