Pay it forward

This is what my kids and I have been eating.  Tri-berry jam on home made whole wheat bread.  Who knew jam and bread could be so good? 

Several months ago, I signed up for a crafty "Pay it forward" on my friend, Kiersten's blog.  I had no idea she was going to send me such a yummy treat.  Thank you so much, Kiersten!    

I was supposed to post the same thing on my blog right away, and ask for people who wanted to participate.  Unfortunately, life got busy and it got forgotten.  Now that Kiersten has sent me her yummy creation, I had better post mine.  So here goes.  I hope you sign up!  

The deal: The first 5 people to respond to this post will receive something made by me for you! It will be my choice, but custom designed especially for you. Just so we’re on the same page, here are the details: No guarantees my gift will make you feel absolute true love, but possibly some happiness, slight fervor, or maybe chocolate. It will be done sometime this year. You will have no clue what it will be… cookies, a photograph, a piece of homemade jewelry. It may be some other random thing I am capable of making or doing that would be enjoyable to you! I may bake something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you! That’s for sure. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The fine print (which is actually the same size, but whatever): You must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on their blog. When you get your lovely homemade goods from me, post a picture on your blog so I know my love arrived without a hitch. Who wants to play?
