Craft It Forward

A while ago, a friend of mine from Legacy posted a blog called Craft It Forward. If you've ever heard of saying "pay it forward," the idea is based off of that. Anyway, she offered to make something for the first three commenters on her blog post, but those commenters had to agree to "craft it forward."

Well, I signed up for the challenge, and received my gift about a month ago: this really lovely necklace! Thank you so much, Deanna! Needless to say, it has become one of my favorites and I wear it all the time. :)

In fulfilling my part of the deal, I'm posting the same thing here and hoping for three people to comment and accept the challenge. Since most of our readers are supporters, friends, and partners in our work here in Ukraine, the crafts I make will be something related to Ukraine. (A fun challenge for me and hopefully something different for you!)

The first three commenters to this post will receive something from me, and yes, I'll mail it all the way from Ukraine to you. All you have to do is agree to craft it forward to three other people. And, yes, if you don't feel particularly "crafty," then you can bake something or adapt it to what suites your gifts/talents!

Thanks again, Deanna, for the challenge!

I'm in! What a wonderful idea! Kind of like Love to Cook Thursday - don't you think. The hard part is trying to decide what to "Craft Forward". Maybe I'll make some homemade candy. My aunt asked me to make some Butterfingers for her Sunday School class Christmas party. Thanks for passing on this idea.

I can't believe I was number 4. What a bummer!! But what a great idea - thanks for sharing it! And now I feel really bad it took me so long to get that package to you! Love you!

Deanna said...
