Paying It Forward

I've joined the Blogger's 2013 Creative Pay It Forward!

The details: The first 5 people to comment and leave their email and blog address, will receive from me, sometime in the calendar year, a small gift - perhaps a handmade card, a baked good, some pretty jewelry - some sort of a surprise in the mail! There will be no warning, but once I know that the recipient has indeed received the surprise, I will blog about the gift I sent and count down the five surprises with all my blog readers.  Offer open internationally.

The catch: Those five people must make the same offer on their blog.

I learned about this Pay It Forward challenge on a new blog I recently found, and I knew I wanted in!  How about you?  Doesn't this sound fun?

We have a Pay It Forward item in our Etsy shop too.  It's an item that we sell way below cost, but if you purchase it, you agree to pay it forward (PIF) with an act of kindness for someone else (or, if you're an Etsy shop owner, you can sell a Pay It Forward item in your shop).  You can see the details our PIF item HERE.

***UPDATE: I believe I may have found the original source for the Blogger's PIF Challenge 2013.  While visiting some new blogs, I came across this button:

It links to a great blog, and the PIF challenge is a teeny, tiny bit different than the one that I stumbled upon last week and joined...But I think it's where it all began.  So, I wanted to add the button!  I had been wondering where the original source was, because I hadn't seen it in the one I joined.  I think I found the answer.
