Pay it Forward

I was one of the first 3 lucky commenters on Tiffany's blog for this fun Pay it Forward challenge. I am super-excited, because many of us have seen how awesomely talented Tiffany is! But I am also excited about offering up one of my creations to the first 3 commenters. Here's how it works:

Pay It Forward

1. Be one of the first THREE bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me.
2. Winners must post this challenge on their own blog, meaning that you will Pay It Forward, creating a handmade gift -anything!- for the first THREE bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!
3. The gift that you send to your 3 friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember: It’s the Spirit and the Thought That Count!
4. When you receive your gift, please feel free to blog about it, sharing appropriate linky love! If you are not one of the top three commenters on this post, you can still play along. Go ahead and start your own Pay It Forward chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same! SO, REMEMBER...Pay it forward!

So for the first three commenters, I decided I am going to give you a choice of one of two items handmade by me. The first is a very adorable crayon roll, and the second is a set of two embellished burp cloths. Since just about everyone who reads this blog has kids, I figured these were two good picks.

But if you find that one of these items doesn't tickle your fancy, I'm happy to oblige by creating something else special for you. I love this challenge, because I love creating, and I can't wait to share with you and see everyone else's creative juices start flowing!

Wow - I can't believe that I'm the first to comment!! I love the handmade items that you posted, especially the crayon roll since Simon has a blast coloring right now! Now that I'm commenting, I'm thinking uh-oh! what am I going to make that's crafty!? :)

Ok, so I am totally not creative nor crafty, but what the heck, I'll try anything once (or three times, I guess)! That crayon roll is just wayyyy to cute! I need to figure out how to make the tractor Halloween costume shippable! It might kill me, but I'll come up with something!

Hello,
I am not exactly sure how but I ended up finding your blog today. I LOVE the pay it forward idea.
I don't know how many times I have thought, wow I want to be a part of "pay it forward". Seriously.
That movie I saw it many years ago and I still carry the memory of it.
OK now I am thinking I am the 3rd blogger so now what will I send as a pay it forward gift....
I am a little, ok... a very little crafty, but I do write poems. (free verse)
maybe I would make some occasion cards, I have been thinking of that for a while now. I have to figure this out.
In the mean time I hope to hear back from you.
