I actually won something!! And you can, too!


Jenjen over at Tatertots&Jello has a great idea. She was inspired by someone else to have a Pay it Forward giveaway........she said her first three commenters would win a handmade treat from her....well, hard to believe, but I was commenter #3!!! How cool is that? So while I'll be anxiously waiting to see what I get from her, I'll be planning my own Pay it Forward giveaway. She challenged us, as she had been challenged to hold a giveaway of something handmade.....yea, I can do that! I have several ideas in mind already.

So here's how it works:


Be one of the first three bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me. (I promise, it will be good.)

–Winners must post this challenge on your blog, meaning that you will Pay It Forward, creating a handmade gift for the first three bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!

–The gift that you send to your Three Friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember: It’s the Spirit and the Thought That Count!

–When you receive your gift, please feel free to blog about it, sharing appropriate Linky Love!

If you are not one of the Top Three Commenters on this post, you can still play along. Please take the button and post it on your blog; start your own Pay It Forward chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same!

Ok, the giveaway.... starts..... now!!!! And go on over to Jen's and show her some bloggy love!! We all love comments, don't we?

What a fun game. I'd play but I'm at a total loss for a handmade gift that I could make! I'll have to think about this for a while...

Well I didnt make it in your top three but thats ok. I think that is a wonderful idea yall have got going on. You dont worry about us Southern girls. I have got it under control. I just hope I dont talk to weird and drawn out for them. Drawn out is not my problem. I tend to talk a bit fast with a heavy cajun flair. Dont you just love it! I will do my best to make us all look good..now to just lose that muffin top. Hard work ahead girlfriend. Im up for the job though. I will keep yall posted! Take care my southern friend
