Who wants to play Paying it Forward?

Okay, so I've never played this before...but I read about it here and here and missed the opportunity so I thought it would be a fun idea to post it and see if I can get enough people to play! The instructions are below, read them carefully!

"Let's play Pay It Forward!! EEK!!

And sooooooo...I am entering into the following contract with the first 5 people who comment on this post and then commit to do the same on their blog. Just read below and if you feel up to the task copy the following into your blog and leave me a comment.

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. Whatcha get is whatcha get.
2. What I create will be just for you, with love.
3. It'll be done this year (2009).
4. I will not give you any clue what it's going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. (unlikely!) Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something strange.
6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.
7. Send your mailing address - after I contact you. Come on, don't be shy. Even if you don't think you're the creative type, you might end up surprising yourself - and making 5 other people very happy too!

I read about it and I'm doin' it!
The first 5 comments on this post who give me confirmation they want to play and who post these same rules on their own blog will get something from we before 2009 is over! Oh my gosh, that's only 77 more days!!

ha ha, then I guess you just have to pay it forward to me...less work that way :)

this sounds fun kelley! even though i am still in the range of being part of the "5", I am so not creative enough to do this. And I have no blog followers, LOL! I hope you post pics so we can see what you've made. :o)

Kelley said...

ha ha too bad BlankDaze, you replied, now you have to participate :) It'll be fun, c'mon!

I'm replying because it sounds like fun, but I don't have a blog. How do I participate or not. Maybe i will just watch how it turns out. Love the idea.

Well, I can't be left out of replying to this fun. Since it's just us 'local' girls, maybe we can do something off line. It gets crazy for me during the holidays but I might be able to do 5 things.

yay! I love this concept, and since I'm already sending you something {and then vice versa} I think it would be fun to include this!

There is nothing like making something heartfelt for someone!

So is Steph doing this as well? Will you post a another entry and let us know how many we will need to make and how extactly we are going to deliver our gifts. :)
I need to get crackin' on my idea and start whatever I am going to make, cuz we all know I can be slow. LOL
