Pay it Forward
I have seen this on many blogs lately and really feel this is such a nice thing to do! Not only does it make the recipient feel good getting something in the mail but it makes me feel good making that person feel good...make sense? ;)
When something, usually good, happens to you, you turn around and do something good for someone else. Instead of paying something "back" you are paying it "forward" on to the next person.
Here's how it works....
The first five people who comment on this blog post will receive a handmade gift from me.
In return, you must FIRST write a blog post explaining Pay It Forward 2011. Then.... send out a handmade gift to the first 5 visitors who leave a comment on your post. Take your time...you don't need to send them all today or tomorrow. Any time in the next few months. No pressure. This is to be a joyful experience.
This is such a sweet way to connect with friends or meet new ones, by sharing things we create with our hearts...or in my case, buy from our hearts. ;)
"It's not the size of the gift that matters, but the spirit of paying it forward."
