Halfway paid

Does anyone remember this floating around FaceBook last year?

Pay it Forward 2011
I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They in turn must post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
 

When I saw it on my friend Thom’s FB page last January, I was psyched to be one of the first 5 to sign up. I then had 5 people sign up on my FB page after I posted the same message…..and then I forgot about it since I had a whole year to send my handmade items. Out of sight, out of mind, until this item showed up mysteriously on my front porch last week:

I do believe I own the world’s only Diana Ross Wand of Wonder. Thanks Thom! It is way cool and it graces our dining room wall, ready to be taken down and waved around at a moment’s notice.

I promised handmade items to 6 people. My plans were to make something other than jewelry, since that was so predictable for me. Here it is a year later, and I am just remembering to “pay it forward.” I sent three items away today, so I am halfway there.

(I won’t let it take me another year to finish paying.)

      I bet someone will post this again this year. I’m not doing it again until I finish the pieces I promised last year! Post it on your FaceBook page and see who signs up!
