… and senseless acts of beauty.
I’ve been reading recently about the Pay it Forward idea, and it’s a good one. Who doesn’t need a surprise pick-me-up? So I’m going to play too. I’ve lifted this from Peggy, who lifted it Sonya…. and well you know how these things go.
“This is the “Pay It Forward” exchange, based on the concept of the movie where acts of kindness are done without expecting anything in return…just passing it on, with the hope that the recipients of your kind acts will pass it along to someone else. Here’s how it works: I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what the gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month and maybe not next month either, but it will be sent within 6 months and that’s a promise! What you have to do in return then is “pay it forward” by making the same promise on your blog. I think this will be great. You never know when someone needs a pick me up. I can tell ya it is really wonderful to find something in the mail that brightens your day. Ok, who will be first, don’t be shy. And whether or not you are playing this game, why not pay it forward in real life and do a random act of kindness to someone this week? Amen”
Anyone want to play? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Now I get the fun of giving out a nomination. I’m going to give 2 because I got 2. Here we go:
Other Peggy: Her blog is always amusing to read. She also just got started knitting lace, and my goodness what lovely lace she is producing. Go look at her Mystery Stole. Would you believe that’s her first lace project? Wow.
Mandy: I love looking at her projects, and love looking at her adorable kids. She has a great style of writing- I enjoy visiting her blog for the prose, as well as the pictures.
Cheers and Happy Knitting to all!
