PIF :)

I have a vast and wide array of topics to blog about but this one is at the top of the list for the moment :)

Who doesn't love getting some happy mail? Something unexpected. Something handmade. Something that doesn't require a check to be written to some nameless jerk in Hoboken. My super talented and funny and beautiful friend G is on board for a fun pay it forward project she found on this blog. It's a total pyramid scheme but a good one where everyone wins :)

I signed up to get some delicious G goodness at three random times this year and it's my turn to pay it forward to my blog readers! So, the first three people to comment that they're interested will be on my PIF list. The only catch is that you have to promise to do the same on your own blog! I think in this economy, we could all use some surprise happiness every once in awhile.

And, to sweeten the pot, I'll let you in on a secret. I got a hand-me-down sewing machine yesterday so you might just find yourself receiving some horribly cobbled together crookedly sewn handmade goods. Now, before you all run screaming in the opposite direction, I promise to include something that's actually well made along with the botched sewing projects ;)

Who's in?


  1. dude, I'm totally in!!!!! YAY!

    Love this idea -- sounds so fun! Thanks for letting me be a part of it all.

  2. HA! Small world ... Jenn Olson (Evolutions) is my sweet ubber talented friend :). I signed up under her Pay it Forward and put it up on my "Knitty Bitties" blog, but I SO love the idea that I'd like to do it on my personal blog too. Can I do that? ;). Pay it Double Forward? LOL!!

    And I would LOVE to get some new stitched goodness. And I'd be happy to help answer any question you might have, but the online world has so many wonderful tutorials and patterns and inspiration I suspect you'll do just fine. After all if you can be patient enough to cut out such intricacy that you do with an x-acto, sewing will be a breeze!!

    Happy Day!

    I LOVE horribly cobbled together badly sewn stuff. Dude, I'm totally on the wrong end of my own pay it forward. (*ahem*pay it backward*cough). Me getting E stuff in the mail would be SO much better than you getting G stuff in the mail.


    And? I think you're super talented and funny and beautiful, too.

    Just sayin'.


  5. I knew I'd be late!
    Have fun with your new sewing machine!
