Giveaway: Paying It Forward, craft style

I saw this idea over at Starry's and thought it's fantastic. Go to Starry's blog to see the original post.

I'm going to tweak the conditions a little as I know many of my readers are neither crafters (they're readers) nor bloggers.

Here's how it works:

I will randomly pick FIVE people who will receive something made by me. I don't guarantee you'll like it, but it'll be something made from the heart and personalized for you. *grin* Sounds good? I will mail out these five items by 30 June 2009.

Here's what you've got to do:

1. Leave a comment, sharing with us the FIVE ways you will "Pay It Forward", these random acts of kindness that you pledge to fulfill within one month.

2. If you're a blogger, I hope you will host a similar "Pay It Forward" at your blog, giving away books or anything you like to FIVE (or any number) other people. You can use the same conditions as mine, or follow Starry's, or devise your own. This is NOT a condition you need to fulfill in order to enter this giveaway.

3. If you're hosting your own "Pay It Forward", let me know and I'll link to your blog.

4. This giveaway is open to everybody, worldwide. Please make sure there's some way I can contact you.

5. Closing date is Saturday, 4 April 2009.

6. Winners will be announced on 5 April 2009.

Let us all spread a little kindness.

OOh, I like the idea of "Pay It Forward". Let me think......

Hi, I love your twist, I had thought I might not get five on mine because people wouldn't want or be able to make craft to pay it forward. Also if it were the first five here, I wouldn't want to put my name down and rob someone of a chance, but being a chance outcome here, I will put my name down just in case, and let fate decide! You have done a great job tweaking this concept to suit your blog and readers, and I am glad to see that, have a great day, and a creative week,

I found your PIF through flickr and think that it is wonderful.

I also have been having a hard time trying to find more pictures of items people have made (or received) for handmade PIFs so I started a pool on flickr and am wondering if you would like to add it.

It a great cover!
Thanks!
