Pay It Forward Giveaway

I found this great idea on Brenda's blog and what do you know, I was the first comment. That means that I am going to get something handmade by her. Woo Hoo! I'd really like for you to participate, too.

According to the rules, you have 365 days to send out your homemade gifts. Rest assured, that if you win, I will not wait 365 days to send you your gift.

1. Be one of the first THREE bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me.

2. If you are one of the first three to make a comment, you are a winner! And you then agree to post this challenge on your own blog, meaning that you will pay it forward, creating a handmade gift -anything!- for the first THREE bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!

3. The gift that you send to your 3 friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember it’s the spirit and the thought that count!

4. When you receive your gift, blog about it! If you are not one of the first three to comment on this post, you can still play along. Go ahead and start your own Pay It Forward chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same! It's all about paying it forward.

I am not sure what I will make for my first three commenters, but probably a small mixed media piece.

C'mon and play!


  1. Does this mean I am first??? WooHoo! I would love to take on this challenge (as I love random acts of kindness and this is similar)... so am I first?

  2. This is a gorgeous idea!!
    A circle of gifts across the globe!

    I found your site through EDM ... and then checked out some other links you have posted on your site - I've had a fun evening!! Now I have more lovely sites to add to my ever growing favourites list!

    (Congratulations on passing your centenary post btw ... I'm approaching mine too soon!)

  3. I guess that makes me one - hurray!
    Saw your comment on trial and error and thought I check you out. So I have left a comment and now I am going to check out your blog some more
