I just have to share this:
I got this in an email from one of my East Coast family members:
I guess that sums it up pretty well for a lot of areas!
I thought it was pretty funny.
A couple of weeks ago I was reading That's Sew Mandy blog and she had a Pay It Forward
going on there.
going on there.
Basically it is based on doing acts or deeds of kindness without expecting anything in return in the hope that the recipients you send something to will pass it on!
I love the idea of making little gifties for a new someone special so I asked if I could join in!
I saw a lot of this going on a year or so ago when I was new to blogging and as much as I wanted to join in, I resisted... I guess I felt like I was still such a newbie.
But this is a new year and I think it would be good to spread some niceness around.
I just got this book from Kim Deihl called Simple Graces and it has this cute door hanger in it.
So I was thinking that I would love to make this for the people who I get to Pay It Forward to.
(or at least something that looks close to the original)
Here is how it will work. For the first 3 people who post a comment to this entry stating they wish to join the Pay it Forward exchange,
I will make them this little something and will have it sent to them before the end of 2011.
In return, you will post the Pay it Forward on your blog promising the same thing to 3 people.
So who wants to join??? Wouldn't it be nice to start this year with a random acts of kindness!!!
Speaking of kindness...
I'm sure you all know the wonderful Wendy at Snippets of a Quilter ,
she is having a birthday... and to celebrate she is having a giveaway... soooo,
you might want to go send her some birthday wishes and help her celebrate!
(if you don't know her... you should go check out her fun blog... )
