Pay It Forward

Pay it Forward

"Upon my many and joyous wanderings through One World One Heart posts this evening I was invited to join yet another inspired idea: The very artistic 'ladybug' from living in the light I find has invited everyone to take part in this Pay It Forward. I think this is a great idea...What happens you ask? Well, the first three people to leave a comment on my blog will receive a handmade gift from me. Don't look for it too soon - it may be a few weeks, but I will get them out to you as soon as possible. My request is that once you sign up, copy and paste the above on your blog and "Pay it Forward" by making the same promise"

I found the above among the new bloggers I have encountered through One World One Heart. Ellie felt she'd joined in too late to make something, but wanted to participate anyway, so she has two beautiful tiles on offer. And then, she posted that she had decided to make something to give to the next 3 people to post in a "Pay it Forward" idea started by AlteredDiva.

Now that I've put my name down on hers, I've agreed to do the same here, so within the next couple of weeks, hopefully, I'll be making a few more little books, each with a slightly different selection of my poems, stories, memoir-bits, to offer to the first 3 people to request one in a comment, and to commit to paying it forward on their blogs.

If you arrive after the first 3 commenters, you can still enter the giveaway I am offering for One World One Heart. It is HERE

YAY! I'm so happy to see you 'pay it forward'!

I Love the idea as well. And like you found out about it while surfing through all the beautiful posts from One World One Heart. I know that your 'chosen three' will love their gifts from you. (personally I'm hoping I'm the lucky on on your one world post! ;)

Happy creating! I look forward to reading your blogs!
