You know. From like over eight months ago. I was sucker enough to sign up for two of them, so I have a total of ten homemade gifts to pass out.
And guess what? I haven't started a single one of them.
I do, however, have a problem (no, not that problem with the cupcakes). When I posted my Pay it Forward Challenge, I only got two
If you weren't around for the original post and you feel so inclined, please feel free to join in. Technically I still have room for eight more participants. But do know that if you want to participate, you too will commit yourself to making five handmade gifts and giving them out before the end of the year. The upside is that you'll get a homemade gift from me!
Now if that deadline didn't scare you and you still want to join in on this last-minute gift making / giving party, feel free to comment on this post and say you're in! The gifts don't have to be elaborate, expensive or time consuming. Just something you made and you'd like to share with someone. And if you don't have a blog, don't worry about that either. Just give your gifts out to people you know, or even people you don't know in your neighborhood. If I don't get an additional eight people to sign up, I still intend on making my ten gifts but will pass them out around the holiday time at the Salvation Army.
And as for Susan, the apparent originator of this home/handmade challenge, I'm having a bawling, stinky goat buck sent to you via FedEx. Oh, she's also hosting an awesome week-long book giveaway on her blog (it is not, a goat, I promise), go check it out. Wait. Don't check it out. I don't want to reduce my chances of winning.
