pay it forward.

the news of the world is grim right now.

we all need an escape.

we all need to feel good.

i feel good when i give.

i got this idea of "paying it forward" from my friend Suzan's blog, Old Grey Mare
and jumped at the fun opportunity.

Here's how it works....
The first five people who comment on this blog post will receive a handmade gift from me.
In return, you must FIRST write a blog post explaining Pay It Forward 2011. Then.... send out a handmade gift to the first 5 visitors who leave a comment on your post. Take your don't need to send them all today or tomorrow.
This is such a sweet way to connect with friends or meet new ones, by sharing things we create with our hearts.
"It's not the size of the gift that matters, but the spirit
of paying it forward."

Happy Spring!

Hi Erin,

I don't have a blog so I can't play, but I still wanted to say that is a sweet thing to do. It made me smile. I love the saying "what comes around, goes around." May you get it back ten fold! :)
