~ Paying it Forward..........

I've seen this great concept time and time again on the news, in the newspaper and recently on Michelle's blog, Boulderneigh . I think it's an awesome idea. In the times that we are living in, life is stressful to say the least. The thought of doing some little thing to brighten someones day, if for just a moment, is a good thing :)

This is how it works:
( I followed the basic guidelines of the concept, personalizing them to suit me)

The first five people to respond to this post will get something handmade by me, from resources on the farm. You will have no idea what it will be until it reaches your mailbox :) I will try to make something tailored for each of those five people in some way or another. ( You will get a short e-mail with a couple of questions - your favorite color, scent, likes/dislikes/etc.)

Each person will receive their item by 6/1/09 if not before.

The only requirement to participate: You have to make the same offer on your blog.

A small gift wrapped in a smile and a little moral support goes a long ways towards lifting the spirits of a total stranger who quickly becomes a friend. Please join the fun and "pay it forward".

Seriously, how early do you get up to do this stuff? LOL Its 8 in the morning here & I am just having breakfast before chore time:) Okay, I would love to play as long as I have till June.....I have a habit of getting backed up on stuff.....does it have to be homemade or can I put just some fun stuff together? I loved the post the other day "On a View":)

kristi....
I'm an early bird, normally 5 am for coffee and my 'puter, in the barn by 7 :)

You can send any gift you like - doesn't have to be homemade.

Glad you like the post the other day - the snow is where it needs to be for now :)

Love the idea of this ! I know what I will make & even have a backup (not homemade) in case I wouldn't be able to finish it but I'm sure I will.

I would like to try. The stuff maynot be homemade, but I will try to make it nice.

It appears that you don't have five "takers" yet so I'd like to join in. As soon as I hear from you I'll put up a post making the same offer on my blog www.twopluseight.blogspot.com
