Mail it Forward

It’s great to get something handmade in the mail. Am I right? So, I was the first in line to put my hand up to Whitney’s pay it forward offer. In return, I am posting the same offer to my readers. The deal is:

The first five commenters on this post will receive, from me, during the year of 2013, something hand made in the mail.

I can’t say when it will be (but it will be this year)
I can’t say what it will be (but it will be something I have made – a card, collage, fabric postcard, small gift…)

In return, you pay it forward by offering the same deal to five other people.

Let’s spread crafty mail loveliness all over this world, and brighten each others days!

Hands up if you’d like some mail!

ps/ if you are one of the first five commenters, I will email you privately for your snail mail address – I don’t advise leaving it in the comments section 🙂

    This is a great idea! and if successful I’ll be happy to pass it on in my turn. Great start to the New Year.

    Awesome idea! I’ve not made the 5, but that’s perfectly okay. I may offer to pay creativity forward anyway – will keep me making. I’m currently making a bag for Partner’s mum, and I’m much more perfectionist with things I make for others, than I am with things I make for myself!

    What an excellent idea 🙂 we need more snail-mail in the world. I remember way back when real life letters were part of my mailbox-loot every week. Wonderful way to communicate, lets up the quota and give the mail-men and mail-women good news to deliver 😉

  8. […] month, I was one of the lucky first five to sign up on the lovely Vivjm’s blog  and so now, I am doing my […]
