I read about the "Pay it Forward" game on Tracy Helgeson's blog. Unfortunately, I was too late to be a recipient of one of her paintings. (I am a fan of her work) However, I followed the thread and found Mary Ann--who is one of the lucky ones to get a creation of Tracy's----and, lo & behold---I was in time to sign up on Mary Ann's blog. (As of the time of this posting, Mary Ann is still looking for her third person, so check it out!)
Here's the deal for "Pay it Forward"---
"I will send a handmade gift (it will probably be a small painting)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!(You will most likely get it in the beginning of 2008, considering my current schedule/state of overwhelm) The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."
How fun! I think it will be a great way to bring in the new year & get me started on a whole new group of paintings!
