P.I.F. Pay It Forward


What is a P.I.F you ask? Well it's where you make a crafty gift for someone and in return they do the same for someone else. So would you like to P.I.F.................... Here's how it works.....


A few months ago I was chosen to participate in a P.I.F. though Su at Contemplating My Needle & Thread. And Su made me this beautiful cross stitched heart. Now it's my turn to Pay It Forward.

I will be choosing 5 people at random to send some little handmade gift to in the next 365 days. (A PIF's rules say 365 days, but I plan to do so in much shorter time!).

In return you have to post a PIF on your blog linking back to this PIF (You can even use my PIF banner above on your blog). and choose a minimum of 4 people--(more is ok too) to send a little handmade crafty gift to in 365 days from your PIF post. (and then they will do the same and so on and so forth til it travels round the world and involves hundreds of bloggers!). Your gift may be in the medium of your choice. Just please make sure it is something that is nice that you would like to receive.

If you would like to have a chance at receiving a PIF from me (and in turn PIFing others) within the next 365 days then please leave a comment on this post only between now and February 12th.

On Februrary 13th--my birthday!--I will draw names of 5 people and they will be my PIF members. I will email you to let you know if you have been chosen and I will need your name and snail mail addy,so I can you your PIF at an unknown time--the element of surprise!

You DO need to have an active blog in order to participate.

Please make sure that I can either reach you through your profile or leave me your email addy. Thank you!

Get ready......get set.......PIF!

Oh I so want to be a PIFfer. I love this idea. I would love some of your work. It is terrible that your own sister has to beg for your work. But I know I will get some one day. It is not so much that I want you work as that I want to PIF too! Don't get me wrong I want both. But I have other ways of getting your work....I have lots of family rust at my disposal...:) Please oh Please great wonderful sister of mine who is the smartest and creativest...pretty please with sugar and pink on top...

The sister who would be a good PIFfer!
Rhonda
