Pay It Forward

You want to know the 'new', 'cool' thing to do?  Pay it forward!  I just signed up at Kim's blog Flowers and Art to participate in something called Pay it Forward 2011.  Here's how it works.  The first five people who leave a comment on this post telling me you want to participate will receive a gift that has been handmade by me.  You also need to create a post on your blog explaining Pay it Forward.  Then for the best part, make and send a gift to the first five visitors who comment on your post and who agree to do the same.  There is no set  time limit.

This should be a fun way to make new friends and share your creativity.

Pay it Forward is about friendship and sharing.
So what do you say?  If this sounds like fun, let me know and get your name on my list!

For various reasons I haven't done a whole lot of crafting, or for that matter, blogging lately but I did recently make my first wee nest.  The 'eggs' did not turn out so well so I will have to retry those but my little twine nest turned out great.  I got the bird cage from the jewelry supplier and I am eventually going to try to rust it up a bit.  If anyone has some tips for how to make it shabby looking I would love to hear them. 

Have a great day everyone!
