Simply Saturday: Pay it Forward

I found this Pay It Forward Game on a L.A. Glass Studio's blog. She happens to be a fellow Etsian and has some truly amazing work in her Etsy shop. The post in quotes below is nearly exactly as I found it on her blog.

"Okay - Here's how it works:

I am entering into the following contract with the first 5 people who comment on this post and then commit to do the same on their blog.

Just read below and if you feel up to the task copy the following into your blog and leave me a comment.

I am willing to send a surprise worldwide (I live in the United Kingdom, BUT before any goodies are sent out, I must see a post on your blog - send me a link - that would be perfect).

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. Whatcha get is whatcha get.
2. What I create will be just for you, with love.
3. It’ll be done this year (2009).
4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber.
5. I reserve the right to do something strange or weird.
6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.
7. Send your mailing address – after I contact you.

Welcome to everyone. I will however, make an effort to do something that you like based on what I see on your blog, BUT there are no guarantees."

...and she is part of my own little twist to the game!

I love, love, love the idea of this Pay it Forward game and think whoever first came up with it was brilliant! I collect a lot of art, so any opportunity to do so is always exciting to me. As a matter of fact, a new original from AutumnArt is on its way to me right now! I would buy a new piece of art everyday if I could and I would give away some of my work everyday too if it was practical. With that in mind, I am adding a little extra twist (in addition to the above) to my Pay it Forward game. If you play the game on your blog, even if you are not amongst the first 5, I will email you a high res print quality file of the painting above for you to print and hang on your wall! Just make sure to link back to my blog and to post here as well, so that I know you have done it.

Now have fun and pass the word on!
