Pay it Forward - a handmade swap

EDIT: Sign-ups are now closed

A little while ago (I'm a bit embarrased to say how long) I was selected to receive a handmade gift from Melissa of issa.ino: handmadeas a part of a Pay it Forward handmade gift "exchange".

Would you like to receive a handmade gift from me for no reason other than to spread some love?
If you do - here are the rules (very few strings attached):
  1. I will create a handmade gift for 3 randomly chosen people who leave a comment below. The item will be a surprise and will arrive to you within the next 365 days.

  2. In signing up for Pay it Forward, you are committing yourself to the project (if you are chosen, but feel free to start your own chain if you're not chosen)... someone pays it forward to you, then you must pay it forward to others!

  3. You need to have an active blog of your own or some way to post your PiF info like flickr, pinterest, facebook or twitter. Basically you'll need a place to announce your own PiF and to post some photos of the process.

  4. If you are chosen, post something similar on your blog/selected platform so you can spread the Pay it Forward love. I'll email you asking for your mailing address (and your blog/facebook/twitter/etc address where you'll be spreading the love). Please make sure your email address is visible on your profile or leave it in the comment so I can get ahold of you if chosen.
In simple terms, if you are chosen, you have to keep the chain going by writing a similar post on your blog (or other platform) and make 3 gifts within 1 year.

So you want to play? Leave a comment below and 3 of you will be randomly selected on Sunday November 4th. I'll update this post when I do the draw.

Now, wonder what Melissa is making for me... How many more days must I wait, I wonder...


  1. This is so much fun. I'm already in a PiF (waiting patiently) but wouldn't mind joining another one. However, if there are lots of 'newbies' feel free to choose someone else.

  2. My wheels are still as to what I'm going to make for you. Since I'm busy with getting ready for Handmade Promenade it will be after that for sure. Also, I'm not quite sure how long mail takes to get from here to there. :)

  3. Ooh...this sounds fun! I haven't entered in any PiF before and would love to join in this one. Is it open internationally or only for US residents?

  4. Since I think everything you make is spectacular, I would love to be in for a chance.


I love comments! Kind words, helpful tips, just a hello or share your thoughts - let me know you've visited!
