Pay It Forward...



Several days ago, I won a contest at Tiff's . In my eternal loopiness, I had forgotten. Imagine the wonderful surprise today when I got mail! Tiff, thanks for the wonderful gifts, now I will try to remember your directions.

Oh, and by the way, Tiff, this was the perfect day that I needed that little something to say I am not alone out here. Thank you, thank you!

The title has given you a clue. The only catch to my gift surprise is that I must, that's right, PAY IT FORWARD. So here's your chance to get lucky. The prize may be anything, except for the lovely vase I just broke...accidentally.

The first three who make a comment and send me their mailing address will receive a gift from me.

Only one rule, (Don't you always love strings?) you have to play the game on your site.

Good luck and may your day be filled with the people you love.

Good Morning! I love this idea. I found your blog from "Children in the corn". I will gladly Pay it Forward and link back here if I am one of the winners!

Thank you.

lol! I was just checking in to gift you an award, because your blog gives me such joy to read...and now I see a fun little thing like this.
So sure I'll play along, but first I'm giving away a few gifts already with my bloggy contest.
Can I do the Pay it Forward right after that?
Either way, this is a fabulous idea.....and you still get an award!

Check out my blog a little later to claim it, please :)

It's always fun to get stuff in the mail.

Christy, Lisa and Skippy mom: You all have won!

Notify me by my email of your mailing address and I will get these right out. I promise it will not be extras cats nor roosters from our farm.
Congratulations! Hope you enjoy your small gifts. Gail

What a great and fun idea. Didn't take long for three to pop in and leave comments for you...=) I have been trying to catch up on blog reading today and wouldn't you know it, my computer is slow, slow, slow.....so I blame my computer for not getting me over here faster....he, he. I have enjoyed catching up on all of your posts....just wish I had time to comment on them all. Thank you for sharing your stories and insights. It is such a joy to come here.....=D

Gail I am sure the Skippykids would love either a kitty or a chicken - but I don't think Spot [the dog would be too thrilled, hee]

I can't link to your email, I don't know what is up, but I hate to ask - could you email me at skippyaveo@gmail.com?

I am off to write Mondays post and I can't wait to give gifts for Pay it forward too! WOOHOO! Hugs!

Tiff said...

Good to know the package made it! Hope you enjoy :o)

I hope pay it forward works better for you than it did for me. The promised item - that was paid forward to me - never arrived. The three others I sent items to, never played it forward, so the loop stopped right there.
But it's a brilliant idea if people respect the intent!
Enjoy your gift, nothing better than getting parcels in the post! :-)

I'm currently doing this right now, although in the version I'm involved in the gifts have to be handmade, but you have year to make them in. Thank goodness!! :)

Whoohoo! Thanks Gail. I promise to Pay it Forward as soon as my ABC contest is over.
