Pay it forward giveaway!


Recently I won a giveaway! A beautiful bounty of gifts! I could not have been more excited! One of the first blogs I signed up to follow when I became a blogger was with the lovely Kathryn from Our Shabby Cottage. I have always been in awe of her talents. She has an etsy shop which she stocks with her beautfully shabby decor, which is of a really high standard. If you love Cath Kidston you will just love the fabrics she uses. Her handmade throws are just so beautiful, I just drool looking at them. Kathryn has a busy family life, I have followed with interest as her new house was being built and felt excited along with her when she moved into it. How she fits into one day all that she does leaves me gobsmacked.


Anyhow...... Kathryn had a pay it forward giveaway. Pay it forward has a special interest for me also. I just knew I had to enter. A while back, my number 1 daughter and I became very interested in the pay it forward concept. So much so that we were once invited to speak at a large gathering to explain and promote the concept. My daughter and I had so much fun paying it forward to people that never knew we did. Secret gifts, small favors, and the thing was I think the pleasure was mostly ours :) My daughter and I sharing these moments made it all so special. So you see why I just had to join in with Kathryn, don't you?


Sooooo... in my next post I will show you the gorgeous gifts that Kathryn sent (trying to get my camera to co operate). I will be having my little giveaway, and I am having so much fun getting it together. I love to do cardmaking. I am making 4 sets of cards to give as my giveaway. I hope you like them as much as I like making them.


Here we go, I will randomly select 4 bloggers to recieve a pay-it-forward gift from me. All you need do is leave a comment on this post for me. The conditions are, that you must have a blog, and you must be prepared to share the love and pay-it-forward on your blog and then link back here when you post about your pay-it-forward. Pretty simple :)
