Pay it forward...

I found this over at Heather's blog.. HERE.. she is doing this pay it forward.. so I thought.. what a great idea.. :)
"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the 1st 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.
2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

This is giving me a bit of a spook. Because today my mood has been good and I thought to myself how the good feeling vibes caused me to be nice to several people today... and thought it'd lead to a chain reaction. And while I thought of that, I was reminded of 'Pay It Forward' show. How quaint is that!

Well, count me in. I have been wanting to do some kinda swap but I guess I don't mind making friends this way too. It's fab idea. I am glad I found this post ;) Do let me know more info.

Cheers,
Jocelyn
