Giveaway From A Guest Post: Time To Pay It Forward

I have a guest poster for you today. Please help me welcome to my blog a friend & coupon buddy of mine, Rhonda.

When Lisa posted her Pay It Forward, I jumped at the chance to join the Pay it Forward Challenge.

I recently received my gift from her, which was a lovely pair of earrings & a wallet pouch which I'm already using. This was the first time I ever won a prize of any kind! Unfortunately, it never occurred to me that I didn't have a blog of my own to run my own Pay It Forward post, so Lisa has graciously agreed to run it for me on her blog.

It's now time for me to Pay It Forward...here's how it works:

The first three people that would like to join the Pay It Forward Challenge, leave a comment on this post (and this post only) WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. Please include an email address so I can email you for your address & details to "personalize" your gift.

You will receive a handmade item from myself within three months, completely free of charge to you. Its just my way of giving. I also promise you I will put the same heart and soul in it as anything else I create. You don't get a set date, just know that some day in the next three months the postman may have something other than bills for you.

The Catch (isn't there always one)

You have to Pay it Forward and commit to doing the same thing. Place a Pay It Forward post on your blog, facebook account, etc.

Send something handmade to three people within three months. The items should be handmade by YOU. It can be anything. (Please don’t be intimidated by the whole handmade thing. No one is expecting you to make a quilt or knit a sweater. How about some handmade soap, marble magnets, or a mixed music cd?)

So who's in on spreading a little Pay It Forward Handmade love?

  2. Does my sad pathetic excuse of a blog count? LOL, I am just not cut out to be a blogger! I would love to play the pay it forward game though! Hmmmm....Handmade by Ooty? Has a nice ring to it! oot-n-aboot08 at hotmail dot com

  3. what a cool idea. I'd like my name thrown in the hat too. I'd love to make something nice for a nice blogger out there. Would you let us know if we were chosen? do we wait until then to post the pay it forward in our blog? --sorry, it's my first time here.

  4. Hi Lisa!
