Pay it Forward

Another of my friend from the Welcome Wagon on Ravelry has joined this. She posted on her blog about it and I was one of the lucky first 3 to answer her. Thanks Bea!! I was lazy and just did a cut and paste (I'm really proud of myself for learning how to do that!!) and here's the rules for this!!

Let me tell you about it, these are the instructions: "It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of 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 are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I will now Pay It Forward to you THREE, I wonder who you will be?! Please, be a PIF! You will enjoy it just as much as we do!"

And, remember...you have 6 months to get your gifts done! Come on, you know you would love to be one of my angels. Then, one day, but you don't know when....you will get a gift that I have made especially for YOU!

Please remember, you don't have to knit or crochet to participate, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join :)

Again a big Thanks to Bea!!! She's great!!

Awww, I'm blushing here Carla! Thanks for signing up - I was a tad worried that no one would want to do it. You're a star!

Oh my, I'm so excited I saw your comments in this thread! Bea put a comment months ago for my PIF but I couldn't figure out how to contact her. Is she on Rav? Can you please let me know how I can reach her so I can send her gift to her? Thanks!
