... of "Paying It Forward"

I was visiting Edie at Rich Gifts, and she has posted a "Pay It Forward" Challenge on her blog.

This is a great way to bless others with a surprise in their mail--using your time, talent, and love.

Here are the rules as posted on her blog:

1. The first 3 bloggers to leave a comment letting me know they want to participate, will receive a hand-made gift from me.

2. Those 3 bloggers promise to post this challenge on their blog (meaning they too will ‘pay-it-forward’, creating a handmade gift for the first 3 bloggers that leave a comment on their blog!!)

The gift can be any price range--though I'm thinking that keeping it small will be sufficient--and you have 365 days to make/ship your gift!! I will get you your gift way before a year from now! I have no clue right now what I will make but it still will not take a year to get it to you!

If you want to participate, just leave a comment telling me so and then repost this on your blog so that you can pay it forward to 3 others, and so on, and so on, and so on.......You can still leave a comment on what you think about this even if you don't want to participate!!


  1. Hi Larie! Thanks for participating. I'm working through some ideas now. I promise it will be waaayyyy sooner than a year too. LOL! My goal is a week I can. Please be sure to email me your address so that I can mail it to you.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Larie, If I am understanding-- if I am one of the first 3 to comment, will receive a hand-made gift from you and I will post this to my blog and the first three that respond will receive a hand-made gift from me. Right???
    So, you will let me know if I am one of the three and send me regular email address so I can send you my address. I would love to participate. I love to make gifts. Would love to surprise someone...

  3. I love this idea, Larie, and I already have an idea of what to make! Am I in time to be one of your three? If I'm not, can I still do this?


Y'all's comments are overwhelmingly encouraging. I appreciate them very much. They motivate me to continue being myself. Smooches!
