Pay It Forward GIVEAWAY!

UPDATE - LEZEL, TERRA & BRANDY ARE IN FOR THE PIF. ALL COMMENTS FROM HERE ON OUT WILL JUST BE ENTERING THE RANDOM GIVEAWAY AND WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY IT FORWARD.

This weekend I was doing some blog surfing and I stopped by cute Kristi's blog just in time to get in on some giveaway action. You know how much I love GIVEAWAYS! Now you can get in on the Pay It Forward Action too.
Here are the official rules: I will send a hand made gift to the first three people who leave a comment on this post requesting to join the PIF exchange. All the gifts will be made and sent out (sometime within the next year). How exciting to not know when your surprise package will arrive! What you need to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. This exchange is only open to those with active websites or blogs. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PROMISE TO POST THIS SAME 'PAY IT FORWARD' MESSAGE ONTO YOUR BLOG, WHICH MUST BE ACTIVE IN ORDER TO PLAY. YOU WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO THREE PEOPLE WHO COMMENT ON YOUR BLOG.
Recap:
1. The first three people who comment commit to the PIF thing. (already done...Lezel, Terra & Brandy)2. Then, from all the other comments, I will randomly choose a winner and send that person a gift too. That person isn't in the PIF, that person is just a winner of the giveaway. I'll choose this person on Saturday, February 28th.

The gifts are supposed to be hand made. I know a lot of you are probably thinking that you can't get in on it because your aren't "crafty" enough. Hopefully the Pay It Forward Giveaway creator won't be mad at me but I'm thinking we can bend the official rules a tiny bit. If you really want in on it but don't feel like you can come up with a handmade gift on your own then you should just support someone you know that has a handmade crafty kind of business. Buy a gift from them...just don't head out to Target for your gifts...got it?

Hope this makes sense...comment away!!! Can't wait to see who gets in on this one!

  2. In case it wasn't clear, I am committing! It might be I'm committing to Griffin Memorial Hospital too if my kiddos don't get rid of the respiratory funk we've had for almost 2 weeks....almost 2 weeks of not one hour by MYSELF!!!! See where I'm comin' from?!?!

  3. I love giving gifts. My sister says it's my love language. I don't know if it really is or not. I don't necessarily think I have to receive gifts to feel loved, but I do LOVE giving gifts to people. I try not to buy gifts too early because I usually can't help but to give it to people once I have it. I can't wait to do Pay it Forward. Even if I am not the first 3 commenters on your blog, I think this sounds super fun!!

  6. Thanks for encouraging PIFs! I don't have a blog, but I have the addresses of some awesome sellers I've bought from in the past as well as I work in a community college so I will PIF whether I win or not. I love to make things too, so this will be fun!

  8. What fun! There was an article in a Woman's mag about randam acts of kindness last month. (Wish I could remember which one of the 15 mags I subscribe to that it was in.) I love doing things like this. It is just good Karma.

  18. It is so important to remind each other from time to time to stop.... and think about how lucky we are and what can we do to help someone else feel as loved and special. Thank you for the reminder.
