Pay it Forward

I saw this post on Super Stitches and thought,
"What a wonderful idea!"
It was posted in March and already has 5 comments.
Which means I can't participate in her generosity,
but who's to say I can't continue Pay it Forward anyway?

This is how it works.
The first five people who leave a comment on this post
will receive a gift handmade by me.
There is an important catch..
First, you must create a post on your blog
explaining Pay it Forward 2011.
(let me know that you did with a link to your post) 
{for my friends and family without a blog, see note below}
Then, make and send a gift to the first five people
who commented on your post who agreed to do the same.
These gift don't have to be made and sent immediately,
gifts of the heart take time to make :)
As long as you get your gift to them this year..

Also, your gift doesn't have to be elaborate or difficult to make.
It can be as simple as a bookmark or whatever you can and have time to make.
This should be a fun way to share your creativity.

Ok so the catch is that you have to blog about this,
but more of my blog followers do not have a blog.
And I would like to include them as well.
This is what you can do to participate in Pay it Forward:
Tell your friends and family about Pay it Forward
and make gifts for the first 5 people who agree to do the same. 
Just let me know you did :)

If you are a friend who follows my blog with out "following"
go to the bottom of the page to BIRD WATCHERS,
show some support and sign up already! ;)
