The One You’ve Been Waiting For

No not that one, give me a week or so to put it together.

Instead I’m doing my pay it forward post.  Here’s the story, Bythelbs wrote a post in which she promised to send something handmade to the first three commenters sometime in the next year.  I think I was the fifth or sixth commenter but somehow I made it under the wire anyway (long story) so now I have to pay it forward.

Therefore sometime in 2009 I will send something handmade to the first three commenters (who want it) on this post.

The other bloggers that I’ve seen do this have stipulated that the “winners” have to do this on their own blog to pay it forward but I’ve decided to dispense with that part (It’s my blog and I can do what I want!) to me, that sort of defeates the purpose.  So I’m going to pay mine forward and you can chose whether to do the same or to be a selfish meanie and let it stop with you.  (Just because I’m not making it a requirement does not mean I’m above guilt tripping.)

Anyway, have at it.

    Like I’ve said in other posts like this, I don’t like to do nice things for people, so I’ll have to pass. Good luck.

    I want it. But I feel guilty for taking it. Because I already got one somewhere else. But I’m totally paying it forward! And I’m gonna have an amazing give-a-way for my birthday later this month, so that counts, right? Right? Right? If not, let me know. If it does, YES! I get something from you.

    I just started checking in a couple of weeks ago, and here I am at number four. I feel flattered. Of course the only things I make are food, so I don’t know how transportable it is. Unless a bad stick drawing counts.

    And I think it’s funny how you always break tag rules.

    Is there any point in my being here? And no, I have nothing to offer Blogland, so I would be one of those take-it-and-run girls.

    But at least I’m honest, right?

    So I didn’t see that many people saying to send them something so I’ll comment just in case. And also so I won’t be eavesdropping.

    I thought we were the ones we’ve been waiting for.
