So yesterday, I was perusing my facebook and one of my friends through Crafting posted the following as a status:
Pay it Forward 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must in turn post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. *The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
Ummmm, Hello genius! What better way to share handmade loving than through a handmade loving chain letter/package of sorts! I am super excited because I have already connected with new people and have the opportunity to share some of my “test subjects” with others, mayhaps getting their opinions? A Prim & Propah survey? My mind is spinning wildly out of control (OK, that was a tad dramatic).
I also thought about how I can take this idea and mold it into something bigger and bring in more of the handmade community; sort of like let’s trade our goods then blog about how special they made us feel… Eh, it’s still a rough idea but I really think I might be on to something really cool. I will take my time and mold the idea, then see who is on board!
First things first though? Paying it Forward a la Handmade. Can’t wait to blog about the experience once I have created some treats for my buds! Hot Dog!
PS. OK, I have to leave you with this which isn’t necessarily in conjunction with my post topic but is more so something I should look to on a daily basis. Ha. Love it. Truth.
