I signed up for this a while ago and just now have found more than a few minutes to adequately post about it on my blog. I read about this on the Pugs, Knitting, and Me blog posted by Amber. She knits and talks about that in her blog. I just visited her site again today and found out that she also belongs to a bag sewing Yahoo group and posted pics of a few bags she made. I and definately a bag addict, so I will be checking out that Yahoo group for myself! Anyways, here is the description of the pay it forward exchange idea which I so lovingly lifted from Amber's blog (thanks Amber for including me in 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 :)
So, that being said, leave a comment and join in on this wonderful exchange idea! It is so rewarding to give a handmade gift and experience the joy it gives the recipient!
