pay it forward - crafty style!

ok. i don't think i quite know what i've gotten myself into. since i don't update regularly, and since i don't have very many commenters, i might have to alter the rules SLIGHTLY to get my three in. nevertheless i REFUSE to end the pay it forward cycle! i WILL carry on! :) Rules:

1. comment on this post (be one of the first 3ish).
2. receive a handmade gift from ME, maker of handmade gifts.
3. post this message on YOUR blog and offer THREE more handmade gifts to the first three commenters.
4. the clever cycle continues and everyone has fun and beautiful crafts to display in their home.

(thanks for that rule synopsis benny!)

understand? ok. go forth and comment! :)

haha oops I didn't mean I would check out your blog as this grand favor to you. I meant I would return to read more often, but I rushed through the comment. Sorry!

:) I love fun crafts...too bad I am not good at making them. But regardless - let's see if this works.

Ok....third times a charm. I have not left comments before and after typing 2 - realized I need a google account.

I read a couple of blogs periodically and enjoy reading about things in your lives. I realize as part of my commenting to your blog, I now need to create one - therefore will need some help from you and Dawnners : 0 )

I love the movie "Pay it Forward". We purchased it several months ago and watch it periodically. I think it is something we should be doing on a regular basis!

So, I was a victim of a "Random Act of kindness" last night. It surprised me so, that I want to share with others. While sitting in the drive through to bring home food for my family, I was exhausted from the day at work and ready to call it a day. I ordered our food and drove to the first window to pay. The person inside the drive through informed me our order had just been paid for by the person in the car in front of me. Ther person had already drove off and I was stunned. I asked the kids if he was kidding and he said no - go to the next wondow to pick up your food.

I have heard of things like this and even read about doing some similar type of acts of kindness, leaving a message behind - track, etc. I think this is something we should think about doing a little more often and touch others lives.
