~Pay It Forward~ A Handmade Gift For You

I am sharing the simple act of kindness of "Paying it forward" to the first three people who comment on this post by requesting to join the PIF exchange and then hopefully do the same "Pay It Forward" on their blog.

I am "Paying it forward" after visiting and signing PIF post on the Family and Flowers blog by Darla, who is paying it forward from the Life's Little Garden blog by Valerie.

Giving to others can create a bit of joy in life for everyone. I am really looking forward to this and hope you will be too!


The paragraph below was copied from the Life's Little Garden "Pay it forward" post.

"It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward" where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness pass it on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
Now remember you have to be in the first three that sign up to do this (you can comment without signing up!) and you have to pass it on. Be sure I have your e-mail or your blog address so I can get in touch with you."

"Be the the change you want to see in the world today." Quote by Mahatma Ghandi

Very sweet Karrita. I HATE being the first to comment on a blog-have I ever told you this??

Jan (Thanks For 2 Day) said...

Whoa Karrita, am I the second to comment? Scary!

Jan (Thanks For 2 Day) said...

I have a question: I am not sure I'm the 2nd person; I need you to tell me,because there could be a bunch of comments in your box that you haven't posted yet. I will do a post on it IF you tell me okay?

Jan~ Thanks 4 today!
Yay! I am delighted that you commented and want to "Pay it forward." This is just perfect...you seem to embody being grateful , and we all get to see that, which is a gift in itself. I am happy to give you a handmade item!
Happy day~

Hi Karrita - (I had to wait until you had three other comments)

I took part in a PIF last year and it was a great experience

Darla said...

I am so glad that you are joining us in this experience. I was just thinking today about what I will make to Pay It Forward. I need your contact info so when I get the gifts ready I can mail it to you. rusdar@hotmail.com

Hi Karen~ Still hoping for two more people to sign up. This will be my first time doing the PIF, I am looking forward to sharing. Thanks for the visit!

Darla~ Thank you for posting your "PIF," which led me to post it too.

Linda Lunda said...

Hi Karrita... I´ll try to do it! I thought I only needed to comment... sorry did not read all the loooooooooong English text..... its hard sometimes to read text in English.

Linda Lunda said...

Cant resist getting something from you!!!!!!

My Mother's Garden said...


Wonderful! That makes two people who want to pay it forward. I get to share with my creative friend all the way on the other side of the planet. This is perfect! I will send it out very soon! I just need your address, I'll email you to get it.

Happy day~

Hey Karrita,
I think What you are doing is a wonderful thing. That quote has always been a favorite of mine.

Rose said...

This is a wonderful idea, but I'm glad I'm not one of the first three, because I can't make anything! Just wanted to tell you the butterfly dish you showed on your last post was absolutely gorgeous. You have been blessed with a great talent.
