Pay It Forward! Handmade Swap

Back in June, yes June where has the time gone. I signed up to Pay It Forward on Kelly's blog over at Live.Love.Create. It's still my turn to Pay It Forward, so if you would like a little present from me, come play along!

Here are the "rules" (as taken from Kelly's blog).
1. I will create a crafty gift for each of the first three people who comment to this post. This is a surprise, and will arrive to you anytime within the next 365 days.

2. In signing up for Pay it Forward, you are committing yourself to the project...someone pays it forward to you, so you pay it forward to others! Just post this, or something similar so others can get involved. Basically you will create your own post where you create gifts for 3 people as well.

3. You need to have an active blog of your own...{or some way to post up your PIF info like a flickr, pinterest, or Facebook account. Basically you'll need a place to announce your own PIF and to post some pics of the process.}

4. After commenting on this post, post something similar on your you can spread the pay it forward love. I will email you asking for your mailing address {and the online address where you are posting your PIF info} so I can get your crafty treat in the mail. Please make sure your email address is visible on your profile or leave it in the comment.
