Pay It Forward

My friend and fellow yarn enthusiast, Rosie, has invited me to be a part of a movement that was set forth by a movie. I haven't seen a movie in theater for 4 years or more- and rarely watch them on the tv- but love this idea and want to be a part of it....
I will blatantly BORROW ( ahem-perhaps plagiarize is the more proper word! lol )
from her blog to tell the rest.....

Have you seen the movie "Pay it Forward"?

Haley Joel Osment's character comes up with a simple idea to change the world. Give three good deeds, the person who receives it must pay it forward.

An easy thing but so difficult.

Somebody has taken this idea and turned it into presents. It's fun to give gifts. I read about it in
Rosie's blog. You can be a part of this if you promise:

“I will send a handmade gift to the first three people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week… but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”
You can be a part of this, just leave a comment here, and I will reply so you can can email me your address.


So that's it really! :)
Let's have fun!

Hope you are well!

I will have to start up getting emails again from Hippie Spirit.
I found the neatest hippie craft book at the library and thought of you right away! Glad I can share it with you now.
Thanks so much for commenting and getting back in touch. :) I really look forward to keeping in contact again.
