Pay It Forward

pay_it_4ward When I met up with Carol the other day, she had a special gift for me.  I had been one of the “winners” of her Pay It  Forward post from about a thousand years ago and she thought it was time to award me my wonderful gift. 

I’d love to be able to say that I’m one of those people that is always winning something.  Sadly, I’m not…  I’m one of those people that wins something wonderful every once in a while.  (And by something wonderful, I do not mean  A Major Award.)

In this instance, I won two beautiful sets of handmade earrings.  Thanks Carol!

Now if you aren’t aware of the Pay it Forward blog movement, it’s a fun little meme that instead of answering some questions, you give three lucky recipients some sort of gift.

So here are the official “rules” of this meme (Of course there are rules…why would you doubt that?)

If you’d like to participate, leave me a comment. I will pick 3 commenters and send them….um….something.  It won’t be earrings and it won’t be a Major Award (unless, of course, Jay wins because he would probably like a Major Award!)  It might even be store bought… (I’m posting the rules,  I can make them up as I go along.  So there!) If I know you well enough, I’ll try to pick something based on what I know about you.

You do need to be willing to send me your have to send me your “snail mail” address. (BWWAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!) Then, you’ll need to make a similar post on your own blog, offering to pay it forward to 3 more bloggers who comment on your site. (You don’t have to do this until you receive the scary charming gift that I am sending to you)

On the other hand, if you decide to leave a comment, gushing about Carol’s beautiful workmanship, but you do not want to play, please tell me so in your comment.

I’ll give you until…oh Monday at midnight? Then I will pick three random numbers and see who wins!

Good luck!

    This does sound nice – must shout it out to the group.
    Have a fabulous weekend.

    Know what would be really fun? Hop on over to my house and we could make a few pairs together! Truly, they take no time at all and they’re FUN to make!

    Or hey… let’s have a local bloggers jewelry making day! How many of us are there around here?


  3. Just gushing. I wandered in here from someone else’s blog (I forget whose, I’m just doing a random click day). Anyway, those are seriously fabulous earrings. Congratulations to you for receiving them and to Carol for her talent.

    Those are beautiful earrings for sure! I’d love a chance to win something and pay it forward…paying it forward always feels good.

    By the way, how did you managed to get photos up on WP, because I haven’t been able to do it at my Cafe Karina blog since they changed the dashboard over there.

    Frances~Thanks, we plan to!

    Carol~That sounds like a GREAT idea!

    Ruth~Welcome, I hope you come back soon! (And I love my new earrings)

    Karina~The only way I could figure out how to do it was with LiveWriter (which I really love) Of course, I’m just glad to be able to blog again!

    Those ear rings are just lovely! I should try to make something like that myself. The last ones I made were fish shaped bead ones for my daughter..which I ended up wearing more than once 🙂

  7. Stephanie says:

    I remember everyone doing this a little while ago and thought it was great fun but never jumped on the band wagon. So…I’ll jump with you 🙂

  8. I would love to play and pay it forward. I keep hoping to get involved with one of these for the same reason I am such a Christmas freak – I love surprises. I love being surprised and I love surprising!

    I’m glad it is past the cut off —

    I enjoy gifts – but I hyperventilate when it comes to giving to someone I don’t know. It’s “What if they don’t like it.. etc

    Now those earrings are going to look very nice dangling on you.
