Pay It Forward 2013

How fun is this? A handmade Pay It Forward Challenge! Let's begin...

Do you like to RECEIVE handmade gifts? Do you like to GIVE handmade gifts and bring joy to others? Do you want to join a blog hop that involves giving and receiving in a PAY IT FORWARD manner?


I am participating this project because I believe that giving handmade gifts is important in many ways. Not only does it bring joy to others but it helps us as artists stretch our creative bones, make new friends and connections, and spread the handmade movement further and further into our world. I commit to giving a handmade gift to one person who signs up to participate in this project and who is willing to "Pay It Forward" on ther own blog. Ready to join the fun?


  1. If you would like to participate, please sign up by leaving a comment below on this post. Follow up by emailing me ( with your contact information. The first person to show commitment to the project will receive a handmade gift from me!!! 
  2. Post this project on your own blog--I will email you a simple cut-n-paste to make it easy. Gather one new participant and be willing / prepared to follow through with the "Pay It Forward" part!!! (I will send your handmade gift once you've shown commitment by gathering one new participant) Please link back to this original post: ("JOIN THE FUN! Pay It Foward 2013"). I will include a link to your post so we can follow the project from its origin. 
  3. I will give you a small, heartfelt handmade gift. In turn, give a small, heartfelt handmade gift to your participant and bring on the joy! (please wait to send a gift until your participant has gathered their own new participant) 
(also please only enter under one blog... unless you are willing to perpetuate more than one chain)

(If you want to join but my slot is filled, follow the link below until you find an open slot)
