Pay It Forward With Handmade

Hi Y'all

Today I was reading one of the blogs that I follow Over The Moon Design by Karen Mitchell and she was saying how last week she had read about a meme going around, it’s called Pay it Forward - Handmade and a lot of bloggers are joining in. She joined in on Maša’s blog,HEARTing Handmade :3  So now I have joined in on Karen's blog.  The rules are below that I borrowed from Karen's blog. 

Here’s How It Works

I’ll send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this blog post. The gift will be a handmade surprise by me and will be sent to you some time in the next 365 days (yep, mystery gift at a mystery time).

Here’s what you need to do, leave me a comment and make sure you include your email address (if your profile doesn’t include it). I’ll email you for your snail mail address and a ask a few questions (likes/dislikes, favourite colours, sizes general stuff like that). In case your wondering, I’m happy to sent gifts overseas :)

To complete signing up you MUST play along too. To do this you must blog a similar post and pledge to make a surprise gift for the first three people who comment on it.

So, do you want to play? Comment below and I’ll sent a thoughtful handmade gift to the first three people who do.

Let the fun and games begin! 

Happy beading Y'all,


  1. Ooooh! Looks like I might be one of the first! I hope I make it. I think I might join myself. Thanks for doing this!

  2. Oh I would love to play and see it happen. I tried once before and the person never sent me anything and I let her know and that was it..nothing. I think if it works it can be like magic!!

    1. Hi Cilla,
      If you read this please leave me a message with your e-mail address so I can contact you. Your e-mail address is not turned on in blogger.
      Thank you

  3. Oh Oh Oh Me, Me, Me, Can I play? (you might begin to guess I was always the last one to get picked for teams, groups, etc) Hope not this time.

  4. This is a wonderful idea, Therese. Unfortunatelly I was not one of the first three commenting. But I am a lucky one because I already got lots of surprise gifts from you (in case the others don't know - from the Bead Soup Blog Party). :-)))))
    I am thinking about joining this and signing in. I am just not quite sure, yet. So many things to do!!
    Have fun playing around,

    This sounds wonderful!!
    If for some reason you cannot reach any of your three I would be very happy to be a sub! :)
    What a great idea! I was just hopping through trying to find your Phantom of the Opera piece and I came accross this. Lovely blog by the way!

  6. Oh wow this sounds so cool! I'm thinking about trying it out.

  7. I tried this back when my blog was fairly new and received almost now response what so ever. But what a fun idea it is!

    Wish I'd caught this on your blog earlier - I am running --way--- behind on both my blogging and blog reading this month! :)
