the pansies above are like me, bruised and battered, but they carry on. (hope you all are safe in these rather violent storms.) i'm planning to participate in a pay it forward.....i'm sure you all have heard of this before, but....for those of you that haven't. a pay it forward is a gift that you give because you want to express gratitude for what you've been given. i've been given a lot in my life and though i sometimes stomp and complain a bit, i know that there are others that have it much worse than me....so...here are your choices (pick one of the four) the rules follow the choices.
- a choice from my etsy shop,
- a small cookbook of recipes i use all the time and maybe a few i've been taught by my mom,
- used books that i've read (not handmade i know, but they are hand selected by me and some people would just prefer a book),
- or my photoshop skills in making you an art piece such as your favorite quote and photograph combined or a blog header.
should you decide to take up the challenge, then are willing to:
write a short blog about paying it forward. then be willing to send five people something "handmade". i'm pretty loose about the handmade part - as i count photography as "handmade" and as you see, the used books. then, select five people from your list of participants - in this case, the blogger suggested the first five that responded, so i'm going with that. i recognize that handmade for five may take a while - don't feel like you have to send all five at once, quality takes some time, yo?
it's just a fun way to share. also....last year we did a valentine's day card swap. anyone feeling a spring swap?
