Time To Pay It Forward

Back in October I received a package in the mail from my friend Annie from Real Life Living. Annie blogs about keeping life real, taking care of her husband and daughter, cooking and crafting.

A while back, Annie participated in a Pay It Forward Meme, offering to send a specialized homemade gift to the first three people who responded to her post and asked for one. Of course, I jumped all over that!

Here's what she sent: A crocheted shower back washer & soap buddie made from really soft yearn. And since I dont crochet well, I loved them all and couldn't wait to use them!

Now it's my turn to Pay It Forward! I'm a little late getting this out there (sorry Annie) but felt people were too busy with the holidays to participate.

Here's How It Works:

The first three people to comment on this post (and this post only) will receive a handmade item from me within three months, completely free of charge. Be sure to leave me your email address so I can contact you. I have some great readers and this is a way for me to reward some of you. You don't get a set date, but just know that some day within the next three months, you'll receive a surprise package in the mail from me.

Then you agree to Pay It Forward yourself by sending a gift to the first three people who respond to your post. The gifts should be handmade by you for that person. There are so many options such as a gift from your kitchen, knitting, crocheting, sewing, scrapboooking, something from your computer, etc.

So, who's in? I'm feeling crafty today!


  1. I don't have time to get in on this again, but I just wanted to say that I'm glad you liked them! Have fun!

  2. Oops! My email is sissy1107011@yahoo.com

  3. I love Homemade gifts and would love to pay it forward!

  4. Bugsi & Amy I'm so happy you will be participating! I will send you an email to get your home addresses for mailing.

    Annie I absolutely loved them! I had to hide them so my son didnt cabbage on to them too! lol

    Now I need just one more of you ladies.

  5. Hi! I have just found your blog and would love to get in on this! Sounds like fun! Stephanie @ stephaniesmith0425@yahoo.com

  6. Sounds like a cute idea!

  7. What a nice idea. I will have to keep this in mind for after I have moved.

  8. Stephanie you are third, welcome!

    Shelly & Precious you gals can join in under one of the three girls here!

  9. Yeah, Shelly and Precious, if you will send my your email, you'll be two of my pay it forward peoples! =) And that should be far enough in advance for you Precious to get moved, because that means 3 months for Lisa to get to me and 3 months for me to get to you (probably won't take that long for me though) = )
