Pay it Forward

So my good friend Chloe over at My New Life as a Housewife got this idea (I forget from who...sorry, Chloe!), and I was one of the first five on her blog to comment so....I'm doing my part and paying it forward,too!

So the first 5 of you to comment on this blog will receive something special and homemade from me.  Now I feel that I must give a disclaimer at this point.  I never have been, nor will I ever be, a crafty person.  Trust me on this.  Whenever my sister-in-law used to try to help me with crafts for gifts or showers, I'd usually end up throwing my hands in the air in frustration exclaiming that I sucked at life.  (This is not an exaggeration.  This was what happened when we were making my sister's baby shower invitations and I couldn't manage gluing little pastel squares on the front of each card.)  My mother tried to teach me how to crochet once, and that lasted a matter of 2 minutes.  I threw the needles on the coach and said I sucked at life.  (See a pattern here?)

BUT, I'm willing to take the challenge here.  Because I do love my readers, and well, I do love a challenge.  However, I cannot be held responsible for the quality of my handmade products.  So I'm just putting that disclaimer out there because the attorney in me feels I must :-) 

So the first five of you who comment will get a special handmade surprise from Nain.  But you must repost this and do the same in order to pay it forward!

Now what to make, what to make....



  1. I'm sure you'll make something great!
    I can't wait to receive something handmade by/from you!!
    Thanks for posting this!

  2. Very cool! I am thinking now about what I will make. Can I post this next week or does it need to be now?!

  3. this sounds awesome! i love gettting stuff, anything

  4. I did this on my Facebook status! I think it's such a great idea. tomorrow I will post it up on my blog. For my cousin I am making cupcakes, for my friend who is having her first baby I am making a blanket and some hair bows. Still haven't decided what to make for everyone else. But it's nice to make something for people just because. Not for a birthday or holiday. And since they don't know when you will gift it it's a great surprise!

  5. Oh, this makes me so sad that I was away from the computer last week! Dang... my laptop wouldn't start.

    But I would love to see pictures of what you make for the above lucky ladies!
