Pay it forward



It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't quite know what I will make, or when exactly I will get around to making it but it will be within the next three months.

My thanks go to Leanne http://thestitchingroom.blogspot.com/ for the idea and the above words. She said it all so succinctly there was little point in re-inventing the wheel.

I believe that the world is still a good place and that acts like these are what make it so special.
