Something Fun To Do Together..


Are you looking for something fun to do to kick start 2011?
Are you creative person who loves to share?
Would you like to receive something handmade from me?

Read on...

Yesterday, I was very excited to read a post by LJ of 'With My Own Two Hands' fame who introduced me to the concept of 'Pay It Forward Handmade', this is what she wrote:

"I promise something handmade to the FIRST 5 people who leave a comment here. However, to be eligible, you must repost this message, offering something handmade to 5 other people. The rules are that it must be handmade by you, and it must be sent to your 5 giftees sometime in 2011. Ready, set, GO!

I am playing along after seeing this wonderful idea over at Home Revolutions. I mean, who doesn't love getting something in the mail!!! Cannot promise amazing things - but I can promise made with love. "




I couldn't believe that I was amongst the first five to comment and in line with the rules I'm reposting LJs message.  For more information click on the 'Home Revolutions link in LJs post above.

Once you've done this, get cracking and write your own post offering to send out something made by you to your first 5 commenters who repost.

Then scoot back here and comment, including the link to your blog showing that you've reposted my message AND your email address so that I can contact you directly.

The first five to do this [you must include a link to your post] will be the lucky recipients of something delightful that will be lovingly made with my own two hands.

Ooh, this is fun!
Who will I be creating a real life gift of serendipity for?
I hope that it's you.
