Pay it forward.....

I love this idea and am honored
 to be a part of it..
only 1 spot left...

I was visiting with
this morning
and she is participating in a wonderful project called
Pay it forward 2011.  How exciting I thought! I definitely want to be apart of this.. If you want to participate, this is all you have to do...

The first FIVE visitors who leave a comment on THIS post will each receive a HANDMADE GIFT from me.

Then the catch, but really it's the best part....Easy Peasy!!
You need to create a blog post explaining the
Pay it forward 2011

After that you need to create and send 5 handmade gifts to each person that leaves a comment on your blog and agrees to to the same... That's it!

There's no pressure, you do not have to make and send your gifties today,  or even tomorrow.
Remember these are gifts from the heart, they take a little more time!!

GOOD MORNING CHERYL! Dearest, I just saw your comment as I come to my daily routine of reading my comments. Thank YOU for coming to visit with me, leaving me a comment and being so kind! YOUR BLOG IS DARLING!!! I wish I could participate in your PAYING IT FORWARD; it seems like so much fun, but I can hardly keep my life above water at the moment, being a school teacher! But isn't blogging just so much fun????? YOU ARE IN NEW JERSEY? My husband's family is there. Do come again dearest; during my summer months I am off and that is when I can play!

Have a lovely weekend! Anita

Hi, Cheryl
I see you still have one spot left on Pay It Forward. I have two spots left myself and I am still in the process of making the gifts to send to the three people who signed up on my blog! The month of April was just way to busy to get much of anything finished. And as we are under not final date to finish them (although I do feel really sheepish for not finishing them sooner!!!)
Anyway, just stopping by to say hello...
Have a lovely day!

HI, Cheryl
I waited and waited for five people to sign up for the pay if forward game in March. I ended up sending three people a gift.I thought I had made the list of your five that was going to participate and I believe I received an email from you to that effect. So was it the first five people who agreed to pay it forward who also were to get a gift from you? Not just the five people who 'posted' first but maybe were not participating. It really confused me as I never heard back from you.
Sorry is this is not the best place to post this.
Please let me know what the outcome to my question is.

As I never received anything, if that is the case.
