Pay It Forward

Just like the movie by the same name, this is project involves me doing something for you & then you doing something for someone else, hence pay it forward. And in this project the “doing something” involves actually making something by hand.

My friend Laura posted about this project on her blog. I loved the idea, and, of course, hopped on board. Here’s how this works:

I promise to make a handcrafted item in 2011 & mail to the FIRST 5 people who comment that they would like to join in, only asking in return that you post this on your blog and offer 5 people something you make by hand and mail to them this year.

My handcrafted item is yet to be determined, but I am leaning toward some sort of homemade canned goodies—dill pickles, sweet pickles, bread & butter pickles, Christmas pickles, apple butter, salsa, relish, or something(s) like that. Or maybe I’ll dust my scrapbook supplies out and create something fun once again. We’ll see where the wind takes me.

So, who’s in? Who wants me to send them something this year? Remember. You have to pay it forward too. Ready? Go!


  1. Pay it forward, what a wonderful idea! If I was still active with my blog I would so be doing this with you..
    However on the fly, because your so sweet, and because your doing a wonderful thing here, I will be paying to forward in foil wrapped ding dongs to my okies in dire need. No pickles needed.


  2. Count me in! I just need some details...

  3. I'm in! I love to pay it forward.
    Have a great day!

  4. Yay, I'm not too late! Count me in!

  5. Let me try again with my URL this time! I love it; I'm in!!
