Pay It Forward

I have joined a little challenge to ‘pay it forward‘ (PIF).  This challenge is like a reverse chain letter.  One person sends out a homemade gifts to three people, those three then make their own gifts, and sent them out to three others.  The best part about the reversal is that you choose to be part of it, rather than it being forced on you. 😉

Last night, Manny brought the mail home, and my ‘pay it forward’ gift had arrived!  It is this cute little wreath ornament, made of strips of fabric.  The kids all loved it, and wanted to play with it.  After each had a turn to hold it (and lose it), I tracked it down, and gave it a place of honor in the entry way. Thank You!!!

This made me realize that a homemade gift could be anything…     I had been limiting my thoughts to sewn/knitted/crocheted items, but now I have lots of ideas. 

The guidelines are as follows:

I would like 3 people to participate in my PIF challenge. In turn you must agree to post your PIF challenge on your blog and send homemade gifts to *3* people who sign up. You have 365 days to make and send your gifts. If more than 3 people sign up, I will draw names from a hat. If you do not think you can make and send 3 gifts within a year’s time, please don’t sign up.

Please leave a comment.

In the meantime, I am going to figure out what I want to give!  I figured out what I am giving!

Dreaming…

"Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass." ~Psalm 37:4 & 5

Confident Endeavors

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
