Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward Exchange is based on the concept of the movie "Pay it forward". I will send a hand made gift to the first FIVE people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join the PIF exchange. All the gifts will be made and posted out 'sometime within the next year'. How exciting to not know when your surprise package will arrive! What you need to do in return, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. This Exchange is only open to those with active websites or blogs. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PROMISE TO POST THIS SAME 'PAY IT FORWARD' MESSAGE ONTO YOUR BLOG, WHICH MUST BE ACTIVE IN ORDER TO PLAY. YOU WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO FIVE PEOPLE WHO COMMENT ON YOUR BLOG. I'd love for you to join me! Will you? Other comments are welcome, but only the first five will be my Pay It Forward recipients. Who doesn't love free loot?

I won the PIF Exchange on my college roomie, Dana's blog!  So fun!!!  Hopefully I'll come up with something amazing to make and send to the first 5!!!!
