Pay it forward

I have won a prize on Beads and Botanicals' blog! :-) I've no idea why it was called "Pay it forward" cos "Play it forward" makes more sense to me but never mind, I am looking forward to receiving my prize and in accordance with the rules (published below), here I am, passing it along:


1. Be one of the first THREE bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me. (It will be a surprise but I promise to make it something fun)

2. Winners, you must post this challenge on your blog, meaning that you will Pay It Forward, creating a handmade gift for the first THREE bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!

3. The gift that you send to your Three Friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember: It’s the Spirit and the Thought That Count!

4. When you receive your gift, please feel free to blog about it! If you are not one of the Top Three Commenter's on this post, you can still play along. Start your own Pay It Forward chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same!


  1. Pay it Forward was a really good film - brief synopsis here so perhaps where the idea came from for the competition -

    Young Trevor McKinney, troubled by his mother's alcoholism and fears of his abusive but absent father, is caught up by an intriguing assignment from his new social studies teacher, Mr. Simonet. The assignment: think of something to change the world and put it into action. Trevor conjures the notion of paying a favor not back, but forward--repaying good deeds not with payback, but with new good deeds done to three new people. Trevor's efforts to make good on his idea bring a revolution not only in the lives of himself, his mother and his physically and emotionally scarred teacher, but in those of an ever-widening circle of people completely unknown to him.

  2. Wow this is an amazing idea!

  3. Hi there, you three, thanks for entering, I'll be in touch and in the meantime, have added Pay it Forward to my Love Film list as it sounds good, Sandy! :-)

  4. I have discovered that entry numbers 2 and 3 are from the same enthusiastic person which means there is still one competition place up for grabs; the next person to post a comment against this blog entry will win a handmade item from me!

  5. I'm sure you'll love the film Sue. You could put it on your Amazon Wish List - birthday coming up soon ...

  6. I'll just rent it for the time being :-)

  7. BTW, there is still time for someone else to nab a handmade prize from me (Sandy has already entered), the NEXT new person to post an entry here will also be a winner!


Thanks so much for visiting, I love it when people leave me messages!
