Pay it Forward

Posted on April 17, 2012

I was very excited when I got home as I had recieved a parcel from Cate van Alphen who I was lucky enough to meet at  Polymer Pamper Play this year. It was a gorgeous bracelet she sent me as Part of Pay it Forward. she posted a Pay it forward notice on her blog and I was the first to comment so was lucky enough to recieve this bracelet!

Here’s how to play along:

  1. I’ll make something handmade for the first 2 people who comment to this post an the first person to email me (it should really be just comments but I wanted  to give everyone a chance as I know a few people can’t comment for some reason). What I make will be a surprise and will arrive to you when you least expect it. Doesn’t everyone love a surprise?
  2. I have 365 days to make and deliver it to you. But there’s a little catch, to get a handmade gift from me, you have to play too! This means you take the pledge to send something handmade to 3 of your blog readers.It can be anything that you make.
  3. In case it wasn’t obvious in #2, you have to have a blog.
  4. Once you comment here, you have to post about Pay it Forward on your blog and keep it going

So wherever you are, please comment (I’m not afraid of international postage) and please join in to share your handmade loveliness.  Make sure you give me your email address if there isn’t a way to contact you through your blog.

Thank you Cate! You should go check out her blog Fulgorine as she has polymer clay tutorials, tips and inspiration. I wonder who will be the first 3?

    • Congratulations Chris and Alison – you are the first 2 commenters. The 3rd person will be the person who emails me first, if no one emails I will take the next comment instead. Alison I need a way of getting in touch please. If I don’t hear back from you by the wekend i will take the next commenter instead.
