Pay it forward

Here’s the concept: “Pay it forward” is the idea that random acts of kindness are given without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill, that’s what this is about. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

Here’s how it works: You’ll have to comment on this post and the first three people who comment will receive an original “Pay it Forward” gift from me within the next few months. But those three people will also have to post the idea on their blog and commit to creating something for the first three people who comment and so on and so forth.

SO, the first three people to comment here will get something made by me, but you have to do this on your blog as well. I’ll be reading your blog to make sure that you have posted something about your “Pay it Forward.”

  1. Good morning Andrea, what fun this is! I hope it keeps going a long way. Now, I am deciding on my handmade gift for you and what I would like to know is do you have a preference with colours eg;pastels or brights, blues or pinks etc. It will just help me with my little plan! Also please can you email me your address via my Etsy shop so that something nice will surprise you via the mail soon.
    Happy Sunday, Jane x

  2. P.S. Didn't want to post another comment on the OWOH post, but I forgot something important, so I post it here: I LOVE your concept of the falling ladies, and it's like camomille tea for my soul to see them falling so... easily.

  3. Hello Andrea! What a fun idea this is! I'm already thinking of what to make for the three ladies who will comment on my post. :^) Patsy from
