Pay It Forward

Flowers from Mr. M

I was lucky enough to get in on loribird's post, and now I'm going to pass it on, just as I promised. If you are interested in participating in the Pay It Forward ring of expanding light and crafty goodness read on :)

The whole thing is "...based on 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 continue to pass it along as well. 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."

If you want to participate please leave a comment here AND email me at englishmajor AT hotmail DOT com with your information (mailing address, blog address, ravelry/flickr ID) so I can send you something great!

Just wanted to say that I love this idea and would totally play, but I think Josh would have some words to say if I took on another project at the moment (am buried under a pile of work at work + home for the next couple of weeks). I hope everyone has fun with this!

I love this concept, but I'm torn, because I'm concerned that holding up my end of the bargain could be difficult (I think it mainly scares me that I need to make things for 3 whole people who aren't already on my holiday knitting list). But, you know what -- it doesn't specify how simple or complex of a handmade gift, or whether it's knit or done some other way.

I can do this! Sign me up! (and thanks for your wonderful generosity)
