Pay it Forward


What a lovely time of year to be doing something nice just for the sake of it. I love this idea so read on below and the first 3 commenters will be on my 'list' - hopefully over the Chrissy break I'll have time to get my gifts organised...
okay, its time for bed now, will talk to you all next week after I have recovered from Market, hope to catch up with some of our other favourite Aussie designer friends, marvellous store owners, suppliers, inspirators and bloggers over the weekend...

hugs, Helen


It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. 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 are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. 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 my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I love the idea of pay it forward. It's something I really try to practice, but it does take work. Now i will think of how to pay it forward on my blog.
