I have been thinking about doing this for awhile and now I am finally taking the plunge 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.
Now for my variations on the rules… Nothing major, just a couple little things to take into account the things that I know about (at least some of) the readers of this blog…
1.) In your comment, tell me a little bit about yourself. There are so many types of crafts that I do that I’d like to have some idea of what you’ll like before I make your gift. (i.e. if you’re highly sensitive to fragrance, a scent bottle with an extra BPAL imp might be a really bad gift… On the other hand, I’ve spent quite a bit of time in forums where it would be the perfect gift…)
2.) As much as I like the idea of recipients paying it forward through their blogs, I know that not everyone has or wants a blog. If you’re one of those people who has no blog and no desire to create one, you can still participate if you post the promise in an online forum where you participate. Include the link in a follow-up comment so that I can check out the forum. (Hopefully, one or more of your PIF recipients will be bloggers who can continue the blog part of the exchange… maybe the rest will continue it in other forums that they frequent.)
I took this from MysticSpiral’s blog and am not editing it much at all! 😉 I look forward to learning more about you.
