Let's play "Pay It Forward."

This picture has nothing to do with the subject of this post, but I think it turned out very nicely (I just took it this afternoon), and I like my blog posts better when they have pictures, so there you have it!

No, the subject of this post is that thanks to Arline, of SharedstuffbyArline, I am participating in the Pay It Forward Project. The rules are simple, as copied from Arline's blog:

Pay It forward rules: I will send a handmade gift (something beaded) to the first 3 people who leave a Comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange (and email me their mailing address), and who make the same pledge on their own blogs. 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 meaning you will do the same for three people who comment on your blog.

There you have it! I will be sending out either beaded or polymer items, and if you tell me your favorite colors, I'll try to make sure that it suits you, too.

I really like this as a fun and reasonably easy way to share handmade goods with the world.

And by the way, if you haven't already, you should really visit Arline's blog. Her bead embroidery is great!


  1. Many thanks for your kind comments about my beadwork. So glad you decided to join PIF. What a great way to share beautiful artwork with others.


  2. I'm not joining -- I can't do that right now, but I do pay it forward in other ways all the time. (After all, the idea came from my culture decades ago!)

    Those are cute spiral beads! They look like a little coven of snails!

  3. LOL, they do look kind of like a coven.
