pay it forward

i read about this great, excellent idea on brandi's blog, notyouraverageordinary.


-i make a handmade gift for the first 3 people to comment.
-i have 365 days in which to send you the gift.
-the gift will be a total surprise.
-you keep this going by posting pay it forward on your blog.

i will be getting a lovely handmade gift from brandi, who i "met" when she commented on my blog. the best is when she comments and says nice things on my blog, it looks like i'm commenting on my work. dave even thought i was. yes brandi, gorgeous quilt! fellow brand-i's are hard to find, we gotta stick together.

i'm excited, because this is such a great idea. it gives me a reason and excuse to make things for friends!

this isn't what i'll be making, but this is a cute craft from the wonderful martha stewart, my hero. floral pillows

so the first three commenters will get gifts. i'll contact you for your address.
