Earlier this year, Em posted details of a Pay it Forwards on her blog, and I signed up to take part. The rules are:
Pay it forward 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They in turn must post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
My package arrived on Monday, which made for a fantastic start to the week. I was so impressed with the time and care that Em had taken to put it all together. See below for a photo of what was in it, although apologies for the picture which does not do the contents justice.
If you’d like to know how to make the lovely doorstop or how to concoct the yummy-smelling vanilla essence, Em has shared the details here.
So, now it’s my turn, and I will be sending out a parcel to five people who would like to receive something homemade through the post. International people are also welcome – you don’t have to be UK based. As yet I don’t know what will be in it but you can probably expect candles to make an appearance (although I promise this isn’t just an excuse to palm off leftover wedding decorations on people!). If you’re interested, leave a comment and then drop me an email on westcountrypostcards [at] gmail [dot] com along with your address, and then keep an eye on the mail…
