Pay It Forward. . . .edited

A few months ago, my friend Judy issued a "pay it forward" challenge on her blog. Here's how it works. These are her words:

"I will send a handmade gift to the first three people that leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what the gift will be yet. My intention is to make something you will know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. You may not receive to tomorrow, or next week, but you will receive it within the next 365 days. That is my promise. The only thing you have to do in return is to Pay it Forward by making the same promise on your blog."

(Yeah, sorry. . .this will be restricted to other bloggers)

So, that's what I'm doing. . . .because I promised.

So, if you are interested in something handmade by moi and are willing to promise to pay it forward after you've received something from me. . . please indicate so in the comment section.

Remember that handmade can be scrapbook elements, sewn items, framed photos you take yourself, altered items, something crocheted. . .the possibilities are literally endless.

Me? I got a kickin' apron.
You? Will get something made by me -- if you sign up (and are in the first three people)

I reserve the right to send three different items to my three people, depending on who they end up being. But, you have my assurance that it will be made by hand -- and that it will come within the next 365 days. (And if you know me. . . it seriously may be 363 days from now!) :)

Are you interested? I encourage you to do it -- I love the part where you receive ONCE, and give THRICE. There's something very soul-stirring about that. Don't you think?

Oh, you wanted to see my apron? I'll gladly show it off!!

Edited to add: We have our three next contestants -- Donna. . . Beth. . . Jean! :) Like I said, girls, when I get the stuff to you --it's your turn to post it on your blog, and bless three more people!

Darn, I was going to ask for brownies. I'll live.

Mark, I'm still willing to accept brownies from you. Sort of a "never in, first out" accounting system.
