Pay it Forward

A couple of you know I had a pay it forward idea of my own in the works, but the good and generous Nancy beat me to it. Anne has signed up on Nancy's blog, and I have signed up on Anne's, so here's how it works:

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I'm actually more of a "practice random acts of kindness" person, but I think they're two sides of the same coin. At any rate, I look forward to creating some unexpected gifts for three of you, and watching the circle grow.

Oh this is such a fabulous idea! I love it! Can I play too?

I like doing random acts of kindness as well, but that can be tricky with people you meet online. I prefer surprising people, which you really can't do without asking for a mailing address, lol.

I love this idea and am perpetuating it on my own blog - Not Much

More Than This

I am also tracking this through blogs back to the original source. I am thoroughly enjoying the new blogs I am

visiting on the way.

My path so far includes:

Found on Life in the Lost World, who found on
Just a Flip Flop Mom, who found on Appliqué Today, who found on Cotton Spice Blog, who traced the movement back to roxtarchicknits, who found here on Whimsical Knitting, who says she found it here on Musings from a Knucklehead. Musings links to Knit Tea, Lapdog Creations & The Yarn Closet - not exactly sure where Musings found it, that wasn't clear. So I started with you, Knit Tea. :)

Hi Channon, I love your name BTW :)

Okay, I think I have it all figured out. Stop by and let me know if I have it right, at least to the best of your knowledge :)

Thanks for the help.
