I spend too much time on Facebook and despair of myself for doing so but every so often something catches my eye, someone posts a link or makes a comment that leads me off somewhere.
One such comment was from Tracey Smith, who is the author of The Book of Rubbish Ideas, when she started (or possibly carried on) a ‘Pay It Forward’ handmade gift exchange. The idea is that she will send out three handmade items to the first three people who respond, who in turn repost the comment and send out three handmade items to the next three and so on.
I was number three to reply and before going away received this lovely ‘slow down’ tea card, Thank you Tracey! Now I have my ‘Pay It Forwards’ to make and send on to Anthea, Sue, Ren and Jane. I just have to set up my craft things and decided what to make.

Mornnig! What a lovely sight to start my day lolol….I’m delighted you liked the card, I had a smashing morning with friends making a batch of them and am even more glad that the bag didn’t split in travel!
The idea was initially posted by a great friend of mine, Karen Cannard, author of The Rubbish Diet and prior to that, I’d never heard of Pay it Forward, but it seems it was a film! I don’t want to hijack your thread, but I put a posting up about it and the concept behind this branching network of ‘good deeds’. It’s here http://traceysmith.info/2011/01/04/pay-it-forward-with-me/ if you’d like to find out more.
Anyway, I’m delighted it made you smile and inspired you to spread the word further!
