Pay It Forward

At the start of the new year, my niece Lindsay posted this on Facebook:

Pay it Forward 2012: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here.

The rules:
1. You must send me your address at some point in the next 11.5 months.
2. You must post this on your page and send something YOU make to the first 5 people who comment on your status. This item MUST be handmade by you, ............and it MUST be sent sometime in 2012.

I copied and pasted it onto my Facebook and by the end of the day there were 13 peeps that had left a comment.

I decided to make necklaces,

valentine tags,

a couple of my new moo cards,

and a mail art envelope to let each know how marvelous they truly are.

Such a fun, fun way to start off 2012 with a little art and a reminder to always try to Pay It Forward!


  1. BAF,
    I love favorite is the pendant that says giggling. So true when I am with you, we seem to giggle a lot. Thank you and love you.

  2. How does one person know how to make so many people smile by sharing their joy and generosity?

  3. I was honored to be a recipient of your goodies. Love my black high top sneakers!

  4. Elevated, that, I think best describes the feeling for me when someone takes the time to share something special that they share with only a select few. It is not so much the material things that matter, but the personal expression that comes with every encounter that allows me, if even for just a moment, to feel so much better about myself. Thank you Bobbie for thinking enough of me to share so much of you!
