"Pay It Forward" is the idea that random acts of kindness are given without expecting anything in return. It's passing on a kindness hoping that your recipients will do the same, forming a never-ending chain of goodwill-- that's what this is all about. As a bonus, this is also a great way to connect with our fellow crafters, to network, and to share our enjoyment of crafting instead of just keeping it to ourselves or where only friends and family get to see it.
Here is how Pay It Forward works in Blogland: Make a comment on this post. The first three people who comment will receive a handmade gift from me within the next few months! I will be contacting you for your mailing address so please make sure you post that in your comment too or make sure your blogger profile has your email address listed. The first three people that comment will post this same idea on their own blogs and commit to making a gift for the first three people who comment on their post and so on and so forth.
So, in short, the first three people to comment here will get something handmade by me (providing they also make a Pay it Forward post on their own blog). I'll be reading your blog to figure out what to make you and to make sure that you have posted about your Pay it Forward!
