The Pay It Forward Idea

Here's the Pay It Forward Idea:I will send a handmade gift to the first three (3) people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. You may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. (so, you must have a blog to participate.) I can't wait to see who I will be giving to. To join, just cut and paste this on your blog and comment away. So get posting.

My cute friend Amber has a really sweet list going and I thought it would be fun and good for me to think about all the stuff I'm thankful for- especially this time of year. Only I can't seem to be serious about any letter I try to think up. I'm going crazy here trying to be as sweet as Amber, so I guess I'll just put up the dumb stuff that's going through my head and maybe something sweet will come out every once in a while. I think I'll post a couple a day instead of just one so I can get it done by Thanksgiving. Join the fun, even if my 3 are taken of who I'll give something to and let me know if you're doing it so I can check out your blog too. :)
(Note: the pillow picture above is not what I'm making. I just found the picture googling and thought "why not?" I don't know what I'm making actually, but I will.)

A: Azcaban- I'm thankful there's a place for all those nut-job wizards and witches.

B: Brandy- Yah, I'm thankful for it. What? It makes me feel better at the end of the day. I'm just kidding. You know I don't drink the stuff.

C: Capitalism- Down with Communism! ooo ooo and candy. Nothing goes better with a little candy than Capitalism- YUM!

well isn't that the sweetest idea?!

but I don't want to do it - i've already got too much on my plate this month!

i'm looking forward to seeing what you make though!

Sorry. I'm only giving you something if you do it too, so it looks like it's for anyone else after you. :) That's the rules. Besides, it doesn't have to be made this month. I've got a year to get it done.

Count me in - I love to send mails and things :) It's nice idea - like a RAK :) And could I send you something back too? Write to me please :)
Have a nice day and take care :) michelle(at)

Kristen said...

well i wasn't asking! geez. I just said it was a cute idea. and that you'd better post a photo of what you make!

Penelope Crackers said...

Ooops. hehe. I was rereading my comment and it felt like I was telling you off Kristen when really I was being silly like how I would say it if I were on the phone with you. Too bad it's hard to tell voice inflections through writing. :)

Good thing I check your blog every stinkin day! I might have missed out! Count me in...question though. Do I have to start now, or can I wait till I get my marvelous gift from you? Don't you wish I was giving away my cool school work bored. Okay, enough of this weird random comment!

Penelope Crackers said...

Jess- Go ahead and get started. I'm not going to get whatever I am suppose to make, made til at least Christmasy time. :)

Can I do it??? I know I'm a bit of a stranger, but I promise to do it! I'm so glad I checked your blog today!!!
