Oh my goodness! For once I was actually in the right place at the right time for something cool!
A few weeks ago while I should have been doing laundry, I just happened to stumble on a post by MooMama (I love MooMama’s natural parenting blog, but usually I just lurk on occasion). MooMama explained that, continuing a “pay it forward” idea that she took part in, she would send a surprise to the first three people who commented on her post. The catch: those three people would have to send a little something to three other people, and so on down the line.
Loving this idea as a fun way to spread some random goodness, I squeaked my comment in in 3rd place!
MooMama‘s little package arrived earlier this week. You can see what lovely little goodies she sent in the photo above! A potholder made by one of her daughters – age 8, the same age as my oldest daughter (aren’t those colors lovely?), a cute bee magnet, and set of homemade kindness cards – perfect for the theme of this swap.
Now it is my turn to pay it forward. Since we are going away to France next week, I unfortunately won’t have time for nice homemade things, but I thought perhaps a little simple something from France might make an interesting surprise.
- If you want a little surprise from France sent by me, and if you are interested in paying it forward, then be one of the first three comments on this post and I’ll contact you to get your address.
- Please continue the sharing by sending a little something to three other people, who in turn, should be willing to send a goody, etc. By the way, keep it simple! You needn’t send anything fancy. It is the gesture of connecting with a random “stranger” that is so meaningful.
- You don’t have to have a blog yourself, but you must be willing to pay it forward to three people. Please let me know what you do, so that I can publish it here.
- Finally, in my case, I am afraid you’ll also have to be a bit patient. I won’t be in France until the end of next week and shipping might take a little longer too (unless you are in Europe).
So, who wants to join in?
