Pay It Forward

It's been awhile since I've played the Pay It Forward homemade game, but when I saw Marjie post it last weekend, I decided to jump in for a 2011 round.

The Pay It Forward Exchange is based on the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return... just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness continue to pass it along as well. In this version of Pay It Forward, the first 5 people who respond saying they would like to play will get a handmade gift from me.  I'm not quite sure what it will be, but it will be handmade by me and you will receive it sometime in 2011.

In return, you agree to post Pay It Forward on your blog in the next few days and offer a handmade gift to the first 5 people who respond to you. You can offer whatever you can make, be it something knit, sewn, beaded, stamped or even a kitchen creation like jam, jelly, candy or some other num-num.

If you want to play, please be sure to include your email address or a means to contact you so I can request your addres, and maybe even ask a couple of questions to figure out what I'll be making just for you. If you don't want to play, but just want to say hello, please do!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and even if you don't want to play, please keep the Pay It Forward theme in mind all year long...

I would love to play the "Pay It Forward Game"! I love that you aren't suggesting that we spend lots of money in return and that the gift can be handmade. Bravo! I will mention your post in my 300th post today!
