Pay it forward
This will be fun!
Heather Smith Jones, whose blog I follow with great pleasure, posted an invitation, Pay It Forward:
"I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 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."
I tried to follow the chain of PIF invitations backwards, but lost myself in reading the blogs instead. Better go back and post this first, to be part of the flow.
As written above, first three to leave a comment and post an invitation will receive a handmade gift, my guess is it will be made of clay.
