Last Thursday, Susan at e-i-e-i-omg infected us (her words) with a wild and crazy scheme. She gave us the opportunity to participate in the Hand Made Pay It Forward 2012 challenge.
She had already joined and wanted us to get in on the fun. So just what is the fun? Well, she pledged to send something she makes with her own two little hands to each of the first 5 commenters on her post. (This must be done by the end of this year, 2012.)
The little bitty teeny tiny slight catch (but definitely part of the fun) is that each of the five commenters (and lucky recipients of Susan's talent) has to offer the same deal on her/his blog.
Sounded good to me! I willingly (well, let's face it, I just could not resist) jumped in with both feet 'cause it would give me an excuse to do more handwork . . . something I enjoy immensely but something that too often gets pushed aside in favor of toilet cleaning or some such unavoidable task.
So here I am in turn offering you, my dear readers, a chance to join the merriment. I promise to send a hand made something to each of the first five commenters to this post. And then you promise to continue by offering the Hand Made Pay It Forward 2012 challenge on your blog.
The item you make can be anything of your choice, simple or complicated, big or small, just so it's hand made. And since this is only the end of January, you have eleven more months to fulfill your promise. Knit a pair of mittens? Send a jar of home made jam from your garden? A photograph you took? A poem you wrote? A little jar of powdered garlic from your crop? A quilted pot holder? A crocheted head band? A batch of star shaped cookies for 4th of July? Your options are endless.
So come on, go for it. I dare ya . . . be one of my first five commenters and I'll start thinking about what I can make for you!
