Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Pay it Forward

I have joined in on the "Pay it Forward" from Mrs B's blog. I am really busy , but it is such a fun thing to do that I have decided to join in. . Now to make items for my PIF pals. The only thing I have done here is change the rules a bit and make it a constant giving contest. You can just do it one time on your blog, but here I will be doing it all year long. What fun to give!!!

I have added to the list, I am still sending to the first 3 posts, but I am now going to draw names for 3 more PIF winners starting after the 1st 3 names. So post a comment here and join in on th e chance to be my next PIF

The guidelines:
"I will send a handmade gift to 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange after the 1st 3 posts. Then every 3 months I will draw names and pick 3 more winners to send a handmade gift to send to.

I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise!

The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."Want to participate?
  • Leave a comment on this post
  • make the same promise on your own blog.
  • Give to Random Acts of Kindness.
  • And take up to 365 days to do it in!!!

I like this idea a lot, too! So, if you're interested in participating, just post and maybe you will be one of the three of my online friends that gets picked during one of my drawings held every 3 months. Whether you are a crocheter or kniter, or maybe just want to make a new friend, just post that you would like to PIF! I'm already starting to rummage through my mind what I might like to make. And it is a great way to use my " STASH" and make some gifts!!!

I believe that it originally came from Nurhanne's blog when she got an invitation from Irene but since it is not in English I am not sure who actually started it??? No matter who I want to join in!
