This year in January, there was this thing that went around, called Pay if Forward 2012. Many of my friends posted it, and there were variations, but this is pretty much what it said:
Pay It Forward 2012: I will make something handmade for the first five people who comment on my status, AND who will, in turn, post this as their status. * The rules are it has to be handmade by you, and can be as complicated or as simple as you want, it can even just be a cup of coffee.
I had dutifully signed up on someone’s Facebook, but I never posted mine. I had planned on doing what I’m doing now: making a blog post, and then have people sign up under it. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make, since this was before I was doing glass.
After I got into kilnforming, I knew I was going to make gifts out of glass. And once I got my kiln, I knew I could make them easily at home.
But I never made the post. I thought about it, but like so many other posts, the idea occurred to me at work, and by the time I was somewhere I could write it down, or make a note, I’d forgotten about it.
Now it’s December, and 2012 is ending in less than a month. And I haven’t done my Pay It Forward. So now’s the time.
Want something made of glass from me, for free? Comment below with a couple of colours you like, and make sure when you comment that your email address is valid. The first 5 people who comment within the next week will get something free.
There are two restrictions: You must live in the US (I’ll hold an international one later), and you must not be a relative of mine, through blood, marriage, former marriage, or fur 🙂
