Pay it forward

It's kind of fits into the category one of my 101 in 1001 days - Random Acts Of Kindness. Pay it forward is a such gorgeous idea.

 “Together we can change the world, one good deed at a time.”  
( I would credit the image if I could find it)

I've seen this PIF challenge around the blogosphere on so many blogs and all the while I envied them.
I've been fortunate to join in Kymmie's @A day in the life of us
This is her PIF post.
Kymmie took the PIF 'baton' from Cate who loves to keep busy.

Though I, too, am thinking what the blazes will I make that is good enough to send to others ?
Surprise me - surprise for you !
So, like Kymmie said " If I'm okay with this, you can be too ! "
Don't be intimidated (said Cate). I'm still am !!

How does it work ? :
I promise something handmade to the FIRST 5 people who leave a comment here. To be eligible, you must repost this message, offering something handmade to 5 other people. The rules are that it must be handmade by you, and it must be sent to your 5 giftees sometime in 2011. Ready, set, GO!




  • The commenters who ask to take part must post the same offer on their blogs, and then send something handmade to the five commenters who ask to take part, and so on and so on.







  • Please link back here so I can share some link love with the participants!

  • I've haven't got a plan as yet but I have got a few lovely ideas in mind and I can borrow ideas I see about the PIF realms. The Tip junkie has 100's of ideas.
    I have 344 days to complete my promise.
    It won't necessarily make the world a better place but I'll give it all my heart.

    What are you waiting for ? Go ! (pretty please)

    The only eligibility is that commenters who ask to take part must post the same offer on their blogs, and then send something handmade to the five commenters who ask to take part, and so on and so on. It works on an honour system.

    Update ; Ps I'm very worried that I won't get 5 people but if so I'll still make 5 things and donate them.

    Hey Trish, just read your grateful post and headed over here. I'll be your first commenter BUT I'm a bit nervous about making the handmade things. It's not that I can't do it but rather that I am incredibly sleep deprived at the moment so can't do it now. If I can request a grace period then count me in :)

    @ Louisa ~ Thanks for stepping up.
    Grace period granted - sorry to hear you are sleep deprived too.It's hard with a young bub and a toddler to look after ourselves too.

    You actually have the whole year to make something handmade and send it - just post the post requesting your PIF people anytime you like too.

    I was worried that by letting my reader explode from neglect that I would miss out on something fun but Yippee, I am not too late so count me in, it should be fun.
