Around the beginning of this year, this messaged popped up on a couple of friends Facebook status:
First Five - Let's hear it:Pay it Forward 2011~
I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here~ They must in turn post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status~
Well this just seemed an awesome opportunity to get some free stuff from people who I think make awesome art.
The only problem is, by jumping in and commenting, I'm left having to make 5 people something handmade.
Well I did it anyways, I commented both on Meeka Stuart's and Karen Francis's status, and then reposted the message as my own status.
I'm not entirely sure WHO I have to do stuff for, I have a rough idea. I THINK my list is:
Well she sent me stuff, so it's only fair I send something to her... but what?
Charlene wrote this on my status:
I officially comment!
I retract my comment? I realized I can't make anything hand made that's actually cool.
Okay, yeah I guess cookies are home/handmade. Ok you can count me in again. But I warn you, my oven has a hotspot and don't blame me if they're a little too crispy.
So I guess she is in... Not sure I saw her repost the Pay it Forward though...
Geoff Manson (maybe?)
Geoff wrote this on my status:
Can it be a print of a personalized digital painting? Last time I made anything with my hands was when I did cross-stitch as a kid, and no one wants THAT.
So I don't know if he is in... I guess?
Karen Francis (maybe? cuz I clicked on hers?)
I'm not sure I have to send her something just cuz I commented on her status...
Anyways, I will figure out something to do for all of them, I suppose, and post it up on here when finished. However, the real point of this post is that my Pay it Forward from Meeka Stuart already arrived!
The Sock Monkey is for me, the little red guy went to Mika, and the gnome was claimed by Arlyn.
The Sock Monkey has a "Rutty" tattoo (which is my sometimes nickname). It is awesome and my first sock monkey.
