Craft it Forward

If I told you, I would send a handmade item to the first five people who comment on this post, would you jump at the chance!? Well, then, JUMP! That's right, I'm joining the Crafting it Forward movement. Have you heard of it yet? It's making its rounds and I was lucky enough to be the fourth person to comment on a post over at the Owl Club on Friday, so I can expect something in the mail, as well. Exciting, right!!? (Thanks, Suki!)

The idea behind Craft it Forward is that the five people who comment then go to their own blogs and offer five of their own handmade mystery gifts, until eventually handmade goodies are being sent all over the globe. Of course, though, there is no pressure for you to share this on your blog if you're one of the first five commenters. You can also just enjoy a fun gift from me to you. Your choice.

So, what are you waiting for? Comment! Quickly! There are only five fantastic handmade gifts to go around. Oh! And, don't forget to include your email address, so I can get in touch with you about mailing details.

Happy handmade!
