Pay something handmade forward

Pay it Forward., originally uploaded by Chrissie White.

After rediscovering how fun it is to send stuff in the post, I joined the pay it forward blog movement on lemondrop vintage, and I’m excited! I hope I can inspire you all to spread the joy of handmade!

Here’s the blurb that explains what this is all about:

I am entering into the following agreement with the first 5 people who VOLUNTEER on this post and commit to passing the project along on their blog. Just read below and if you feel ready to commit, copy the following into your blog and leave me a comment. If you just want to say hi and good luck, no worries, you’re not “it”!

I am willing to post overseas (I am in the U.K.), but remember you must commit on your blog to do the same for others.

* I make no guarantees that you will like what I send you. But you may be pleasantly surprised.
* What I send will be made just for you, with love, by my own hands. You’d be surprised how much of our personalities does come through online.
* I will complete all 5 gifts this year – 2009.
* I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world, that you can touch and feel, and not something cyber.
* I reserve the right to do something strange. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. If you find it truly horrendous, just let me know. Perhaps you’ll send it forward to someone who will absolutely love it.
* In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.

Send your mailing address – after I contact you to confirm.

Everyone is welcome. I guarantee that you will receive something from me providing you do the same for 5 other people in your blog post. Are you game? Let me know. If you are not one of the first 5, see who is and visit them for a chance to spread the love- and handmade stuff.
