Pay it Forward


:: The Rules ::

I will send a handmade gift to the first three people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this Pay it Forward Exchange.

All the gifts will be made and mailed out "sometime within the next year". How exciting to not know when your surprise package will arrive!

What you need to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

This Exchange is only open to those with active websites or blogs.

UPDATE: After reading Jessica's addition to her PIF, I will add her excitement and fun to my Pay it Forward Exchange, too! So, this isn't a part that anyone who would want to participate in the Pay it Forward Exchange would have to add, it is just a little something "extra". Thanks for the idea, Jessica!

:: Added Bonus ::

After I have three people who want to play along, I am also going to select a fourth person to send something to, so you don't have to worry if you aren't the first, second or third to comment (or if you don't have a blog) - there is still a chance! Since this person will be randomly selected, they will not be obligated to participate in the Pay it Forward exchange {perhaps they could opt to commit a random act of kindness for someone in their day-to-day life instead}. I will make item #4 last... so, any added commenters up until the time #4 project is ready to send, can possibly be the #4 gift receiver on my Pay it Forward Exchange. So, comment all you like!! OH - and if you don't know how to "comment" on my blog... you click on "jumping in the leaves with us".


  1. I already signed up at Regina's or I would TOTALLY want you to make something for me (AND AMY!!!=) ) I'd sign up again, but I think committing to mail out MORE than 3 things might be a bit overwhelming for me, considering my lack of talent! ;)

  2. ok -- so no one is signing up for mine either!! Maybe I should just go ahead and join yours and quite possibly not have to make so many things! ;)

  3. As I was typing that, someone signed up!! Yay!!! =)

  4. So, congratulations on clicking on my comments button... now, you make a comment like this: "I wanna play!" and be signed in as to how I can get an email to you to get your mailing address! Then you post on YOUR blog. If you DON'T have a blog your comment could be something like this... "I love handmade items and chocolate." or "I don't blog but I do like presents!" or "Sign me up for that secret #4!!" You get the idea... you don't have to leave some brilliant comment. But do leave some kind of identifier so I can again find you to send it to you if you are the selected #4!! :) Have fun and spread the love!

  5. I'd love to receive one of your handmade items, and will happily pay the "love" forward sometime within the next year.

  6. Hi Elm,
    I read (and enjoy) your blog, although I don't think I've ever left a comment; I don't know what relevance that has, but I would like to participate in your PIF!
    Thanks, Angela

  7. Yay!! It looks like you have your three!! So, may I please be entered into your bonus!!! =)


Thanks for jumping in and leaving your thoughts!!

I sure like to know who enjoys playing around the treehouse!
