This is my most favorite "forward" on facebook thus far. I have been waiting to do a giveaway on my blog. I knew I wouldn't be able to wait for my one year blog-anniversary to do it. At first, I thought I would do it somewhere around the 1,000th viewing, then that came and went. Then I came upon this idea and decided it was perfect. I was fortunate enough to be one of the 1st five to respond to my friend Christine's note on facebook and I am so excited. Even more than that I am excited to tweak it a little.
The rules of the facebook note are that the first 5 people to respond will receive a handmade/homemade gift sometime in the next year(2009). And here comes the part I love. The condition to accepting this gift is that you must "pay it forward" to five more who would respond to your note. I love conscious, thoughtful giving as much as I love spontaneous and unannounced giving. This is going to be so much fun!!
Here is where the tweaking comes in. Due to the fact that I live away from most of my blog followers, there is a possibility that not all of my gifts will be homemade. Some may be purchased...but I promise it will be with you in mind and heartfelt. I am totally confident I will be having to mail most, if not all. Please leave a comment about the blog, things you like or don't like. What you would like to see me talk more or less about. If you want less talk more photos (although this could be an issue since I really feel like I am trying really hard to take more pics these days because of the blog. And I am driving my family nuts with all the pictures!) I am totally thrilled to hear any and all feedback! And to know that you are following and/or stalking the blog...let me know you are out there! Also, to be fair this will not be based on the first 5 people to respond, not all of us are stay at home moms that can blog stalk everyday in between rounds of bejeweled blitz. All who respond will be entered into a drawing and 5 names will be drawn at the end of a week.

Like the facebook note the same rules apply...you must pay it forward! So, please enter with that in mind!
