Surprise Pay it Forward...

I have just spotted this great idea on Miss Oakden's blog Vintage Giraffe for a surprise pay it forward. This is how it works.

I will send a surprise gift to the first three people to comment on this post. This gift will be made by me and I will send it sometime within the next year. Exactly when you will receive it will be a surprise (it will probably be a surprise to me too :-D). Seeing as I'm just not that creative, what it will be will also be a total surprise to me.
Of course there are some rules in this game. Here it goes:

Rules:1. I will make a little something for the first 3 people that comment on this post. It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time in the next 365 days (yes, a year).

2. To sign up to receive a gift from me you must play along too. Share the giving love on your blog by promising to send a handmade goodie to the first three people that comment on your blog post.

3. You must have a blog.

4. After commenting on my post, you have to post this (or similar) on your blog to spread the love. If you haven't posted in 48 hours then the next commentor will be chosen.

I don't know if three people will even get around to commenting on this, but I will say that if you find this post 6 months from now and only 2 people have left a comment, you can still be commenter #3 and get a random goodie from me! When you comment, I'll email you and get your address and then you will get something from me sometime before next December 2012.



  1. Can I play??? I'd love to receive something creative from Switzerland. X

  2. Of course you can :-) I have to try to find something I can actually make - but that's fine, I'm sure even I can find something that I am capable of making in the next 365 days, although it may look like something made by a 5 year old (and not because I have got my youngest boy to make it for me either) LJx

  3. Hmmm! Interesting post LJ!! Oh - this means I've commented as WELL! 365 days eh?? AND post on my blog??

    Ok - t'will be done!!


  4. Aloha LJ! Is it too late to add my name as well? This sounds like a lovely idea...homemade gifts are definitely harder, but on the same token, the time and thought make it worthwhile.

    Mahalo and kind regards,

  5. Cool - I now have my 3 people to make things for!!! Time to get my thinking hat on to decide what I can (attempt to) make - yay!!!
