handmade pay it forward!

handmade pay it forward do you like handmade gifts and making handmade radness for other people who feel the same? then check this out!

Melissa at misocraftyknits posted something awesome that i've never seen before, a handmade pay it forward. can we all just agree right now this idea is far less depressing than that movie? no one should be getting shanked at the end of this hopefully. anyways, super lucky me i managed to get in on the fun! so here's the deal...

i will send a surprise gift to the first three commenters on this post. the gift will be handmade by me and it will be sent sometime in the next 365 days. it will be a surprise. surprise gifts in the mail = always awesome.
  1. in your comment, tell me your two favorite colors (that will help me make an appropriate gift).
  2. to join the fun and receive a gift, you must play along, too. pay it forward on your blog by promising to make a surprise for the first three people who comment on the post.
  3. you must have a blog (that is updated, as i will blog stalk you to find the right gift for you).
  4. after commenting here, you must re-post this or something similar to your blog in 48 hours. if not, i will choose the next person who comments.
sounds pretty fun right? i know i post a lot about knitting but what i make and what you make doesn't have to be knitting, it can totally be anything you like to craft by hand. spread the love!


  1. I like pink and black and everything you make. I need a good idea like this to be crafty again/paint!

  2. I'm in! I know I'm months late ... but I went to the craft store today and am full of ambition. I'm in a blue-and-green kind of place these days.

  3. also not commented here is my lovely mother who has spread the handmade pay it forward through her office because she doesn't have a blog or facebook. :)
