Pay It Forward

I was going to wait a few days after posting the winners of my giveaway to post this, but I just could not wait any longer!!

Recently, I "met" N. in blog world through my House a Home Challenge and Giveaway. A few days ago, she posted about a Pay It Forward chain and I decided to sign up. She wrote in her post that the first five people who left a comment would receive something from her within the next year. To be one of those 5 people, you had to agree to do the same thing on your blog. So I decided to give it a shot!

So, giddy up gals! The first 5 people to leave a comment on this post indicating that they want to participate in "Pay It Forward" will receive something special from me at some point over the next year. It could be next week, it could be in a few months, it could be 364 days from now.

Here are the rules:
1. Leave a comment letting me know you'd like to participate. You must be willing to provide me with a mailing address, obviously.
2. Post a "Pay it Forward" on your blog where you link back to me and extend the same offer to 5 of your readers.
3. Promise that you will follow through and send something special to those 5 who comment on your blog.

(I'm sorry but I can only open this contest to residents of Canada or the United States)

The little something something's don't have to be extravagant, just something that you select with that specific person in mind. I already have some ideas of things I will select for certain people if they decide to join.

This sounds like fun & I would love to do it BUT honestly I would probably forget!

I'm bummed that I didn't get my post up about the 10 things that make your home a home. Life has been crazy this week. I'm still going to do that post though sometime next week!

Have a great weekend!
