Surprise Pay it Forward

 Okay, so it's no surprise to those who know me that I've been lurking over at Philofaxy to satiate my organization OCD and Filofax fixation. What makes the Philofaxy community waaaay better than a forum, IMHO, is the community. It's a frienddly, open, intelligent, respectful community of diverse people. So needless to say I've added the lot of them to my blogroll :o)


I have just spotted this great idea on the lovely LJ's blog LJ's Blog of Stuff for a surprise pay it forward. This is how it works:

I will send a surprise gift to the first three people to comment on this post. This gift will be made by me and I will send it sometime within the next year. Exactly when you will receive it will be a surprise (it will probably be a surprise to me too :-D). Seeing as I'm just not that creative, what it will be will also be a total surprise to me.

Of course there are some rules in this game. Here it goes:


1. I will make a little something for the first 3 people that comment on this post. It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time in the next 365 days (yes, a year).

2. To sign up to receive a gift from me you must play along too. Share the giving love on your blog by promising to send a handmade goodie to the first three people that comment on your blog post.

3. You must have a blog.

4. After commenting on my post, you have to post this (or similar) on your blog to spread the love. If you haven't posted in 48 hours then the next commentor will be chosen.

I don't know if three people will even get around to commenting on this, but I will say that if you find this post 6 months from now and only 2 people have left a comment, you can still be commenter #3 and get a random goodie from me! When you comment, I'll email you and get your address and then you will get something from me sometime before next December 2012.

Nobody's commented? I'm running out of time and struggling to find any ability to make anything :-)

Aloha LJ!

Your comment somehow got eaten by the filter :/ Nope, no takers yet, although I've finished making some crafty things if there were takers. Hint, hint!

I'm still struggling, but maybe getting a fabulous piece of kit to play with for Christmas, so I the other part of my surprise will be that it is after the 1 year deadline :-)

We must never permit the voice of humanity

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
