pay it forward . . . with all the love going around . . .

Greetings all,
Super lovely & sweet Felicity from Gifts of Serendipity blog (what a gorgeous name for a blog) has offered up a Pay It Forward.  Yes please!!
 "I promise something handmade to the FIRST 5 people who leave a comment here. However, to be eligible, you must repost this message, offering something handmade to 5 other people. The rules are that it must be handmade by you, and it must be sent to your 5 giftees sometime in 2011. Ready, set, GO!"
So what are you waiting for??  Sign up & leave a comment, share the love of handmade & creating something with your own hands.  When my first 5 qualify with links to their own PIF, i'll confirm & request their postal addresses, then get crafting.  I'm thinking, with all the love about in blog land & the fact i'll be spending my 13th of 17 Valentine's Days without my husband i'll do something with a theme??  I don't let it bother me how many special events we spend apart, but i do count them, like we've been together for 2 out of 14 wedding anniversaries!!  We have the rest of our lives together . . . you know, after he leaves the Army.

Tune in tomorrow for the Qld Flood Appeal Auctions i'm offering to raise money to flood victims!!  My God Mother & her husband are among the mix of people who have lost a business so far . . . water to the roof of their fencing business shed with 3m more water to come . . . very frightening & with half a dozen employees, a lot of families in need without work or income.

Toni from Make it Perfect blog is coordinating this appeal, details here, & you run the auctions from your own blog.  Get involved, it's wonderful.  Love Posie
