Now that I've got the Blogger Awards thing finished I suppose it's time to get on with the other item I've been putting off. Although I've purposely put it off (really, honest!) because at one point when it started, there were posts about it everywhere and figured I'd lay low until the initial hub-bub subsided and smoked cleared.
I'm placing the blame on Susan over at e-i-e-i-omg! and she can then go back and blame someone else. But it's really not anything bad; on the contrary it's very good! I believe it was called the Handmade Pay-It-Forward Challenge. And the rest I just copied right from Susan's blog post on same:
As part of the Handmade Pay It Forward 2012, I hereby pledge to send something hand made (by moi) to the first five people who leave comments. But wait! Before you hit that publish button, there's a catch! YOU first-five-commenters have to pledge to do the same! It doesn't matter what you make, how complicated, or simple, it is. And you have to pledge to send them out by the end of 2012. So there is no deadline looming over your shoulder breathing guilt fumes down your collar. You have the whole remaining year.
So, being a glutton for punishment, I commented on Susan's blog and was one of the first five. So now I have to think of something to make for you, yes YOU first five commenters on this post. But once again, I remind you that if you choose to participate, you are pledging to make five handmade gifts for the first five commenters on YOUR blog.
Sounds like fun, eh? I though so, and I hope you will too.
I'd also like to mention that Hoosier Girl at Blessed Little Homestead Life also took up the challenge and that she's needing five willing participants in order to complete her side of the challenge. If you missed your chance here to get in on the Handmade Pay It Forward Challenge, go over to her place by clicking HERE and join in over at her blog!
Now if I can just manage to not wait until December of 2012 to make something homemade and handy-dandy........
