Pay It Forward

I'm sure many of you have seen this going around, but I really want to participate.  When I stopped by to visit one of my friends, I found that she was doing a 'Pay it Forward' post.  This is copied from her (Thanks Amy Jo @ Scrapping, Card Making and Living with Fibro).

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on their blog, and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 people who comment.
2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 people who comment.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

Make sure you leave your e-mail address so that I can e-mail you for your address. :)

Such a cute idea! I love the idea of putting the teacher's name on it. (BTW...We don't find out who my son's teacher is going to be until two days before school starts! Ugh!) Thanks for sharing!
