You Have to Pay to Play

I’m playing a new game this week.
One of the nicest bloggers out there, nuttnbunny, got involved in Pay it Forward which is described as such:

“. . .a promise to make something handmade, a gift of the heart, for another blogger who is also a crafty person. We’re not talking about knitting a sweater or making a large quilt for someone, something small and meaningful would be fine, and probably provide a big boost when it surprises someone in the mail. . .The first three people that leave a comment and pledge to pay it forward to three others on their blog will receive a handmade gift from me within one year of this posting. I will read your blog and get the essence of who you are to come up with an idea. It may be knitted or quilted or embroidered or……”

I have loved seeing nuttnbunny’s creations for a while, so I signed right up. And, she picked me! Yippee! I can’t wait to see what she sends.

And, then I realized that I hadn’t really thought about the ‘small print’ in this contest. Sure, I’m happy to pay it forward, but. . .with what? I don’t knit, sew, decoupage, make jewelry, do origami, write music. . .my attempts at cake decorating are novice at best (plus, how would I mail a cake???) and I doubt too many people would want to receive baked goods from a relative stranger.

But, by golly, I will pay it forward! What you receive from me will be truly a surprise to both of us (and may take me the entire year to fulfill), but go ahead and leave a comment if you’d like to play. Rather than follow the rules to the letter, I’ll put all qualifying comments into a hat and draw three names from that. Remember that you must agree to also ‘pay it forward’ to three people on your blogs!

Also, thank you from the super-nice Whirlwind for bestowing another “Nice Matters” award to me. I really needed to hear that, so thank you!
