Pay it Forward

I am sure that many of you will have seen "pay it forward" on other blogs around and about.

I think it is such a nice idea and I was delighted when I saw that Vivian was participating. As I love her work, and I love the concept of "Pay it Forward" I left a comment on her blog - and I was one of the first three to do so!

This means that sometime in the next 365 days I will receive a piece of art from Vivian and I have to "Pay it Forward" here on my blog. Here is how it goes:-

"I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 artists who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."

I don't know where this started. I tried to track the "pay it forwards" exchange back through various blogs - but I found myself so diverted with interesting reading and other links - that I did not get very far - so I don't know who the credit for this scheme goes too.

So the first three people who comment, will receive something in the post from me - not to sure when, and all I ask is that you continue with the PIF exchange on your own blogs.

LOL.....here I am! Numero Uno!! Yayyyyy!!!!! ;-)
I was going to start a PIF on my blog this morning....so now I have a good reason to do so!
I do hate that the postage will be a bit high for you, but then maybe I can return the favor!
