My turn to Pay it forward

Good morning Bloggy friends! It's Friday and Fridays make me happy! EDIT - trying to stay postivie - when I took Pickle Pants to the bus (Chester is sick) I realized that the temperature is -32 celcius, but get this, it is -42 with the wind chill!!! Can you say BRRRRRRRRR.....Anyhow, I had some fun in my crafty space yesterday evening and managed to get 2.5 cards completed - woohoo! The third I'll finish later today and then I'll be able to shoot some photos - in the meantime, I have something fun for you this morning......
I found this yesterday on Loopy Lindsey's blog - one of my fave places to go for inspiration and comic relief - she also is surrounded by the male species and shares the funniest stories - well, sometimes I'm sure they were NOT funny when they were happening, but she is always able to somehow find the humor - and after all, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain!"
So, this is the scoop - I promise to send something handmade to the first FIVE people who comment on this post. There is one conditon - if you are one of the first five to comment, you must then post this and promise to send some homemade to FIVE other people - see, lots of homemade goodness being shared around! I truly love this idea, because even though I send a lot of cards in the snail mail, I receive mostly bills in my mailbox - anything personal and/homemade is always treasured dearly!
To sum up, the rules state that it must be something handmade or homemade by YOU and you must send to FIVE people within 2011. I promise I won't wait until Decmeber to send it though....this just allows for some time to cut, color, glue and stick and pop things in the mail!
Hope you have a Fabby Friday! I am off to my piano lesson, then hope to finish my card and shoot some photos so that I can share one of them later on today!
Have a good one,
Shanna :)


  1. I am in. This is a fun idea and since the time line is not a week, it is manageable. I am at least an easy one for you since you already send me holiday cards.

    Glad to hear that you are getting time in your scrap room. I even managed to finish a card last night; while Jen's workshop was going on. Trevor ran the store for me for a bit.


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
