Pay it forward...

It certainly has been a while folks! 
About 4 months to be exact.

My shop has been doing amazingly well since I started in August and I have been knitting and crocheting my little fingers off.

When I started my shop, I only expected to sell a couple things a month tops and instead I find myself with 80 sales and counting!

My biggest sellers so far were around the holidays and included my Candy Corn Pocket Pals around Halloween and my Wine Bottle Apparel (thanks a MILLION to Ivy for giving me the idea!) around Christmas .

Anyway, the main point of this post is also Ivy inspired (as was my last one from September!)...

Ivy had a truly excellent idea that I have decided to participate in. 
She has decided to Pay It Forward (explanation below) and I hope you will join us in keeping this going:

Here is my pledge for "Pay It Forward"

I promise to send something handmade to the first 3 people who leave a comment here. 

  {I will be crocheting, knitting, or possibly needle felting something for my 3 people}
To be eligible, you must also post this on your blog, 
offering the same thing to 3 other people.

The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 3 people *sometime* in 2011. 

Once you comment to participate, I will hold your spot until you have had time to do your post.  When your post is up, I will contact you to discuss your handmade item and your mailing address! 

Now, I KNOW that I have at least 3 creative and crafty readers (at least, I hope someone still reads this blog..) that either have an etsy shop or just make stuff for fun who could participate.

Imagine with me please that this were really to be chained on and on...
 people all throughout the country receiving packages containing an amazing handmade item and then in turn, those people mailing out 3 handmade items to 3 other people. 
Not only is it an excellent way for us all to connect and share a part of ourselves, it's just fun!

I hope to be in touch with 3 of you very soon!
