When I am at my worst or lowest, the only thing that really seems to help is to do something positive for others. As I was sulking this morning and checking up on my blogging friends, I ran across this post on Fastlane’s blog about paying it forward. It was just what I needed to get my mind out of the not so great place it has been in lately.
I was lucky enough to be the third commenter and now get to have some fun! I’m going to make homemade gifts for the first three people who not only comment, but also agree to give something or do something nice for three more people, thus the pay it forward idea.
Fastlane got the idea from Emily’s blog and I think she gave herself a 6 month limit to complete her homemade items because she is knitting them. I don’t think it will take me nearly that long for my projects, but I’ll just say you will get you items in less than 6 months. (just to be safe)
I thought that I would make some aprons with colors and prints like the ones pictured above. I have been wanting to start another sewing project and I am excited to get started. Like I said, my reasons are a little selfish; I need a distraction right now and I can’t think of a better or more rewarding way than this!
If you like this idea, or just want to get a cute apron from me then comment quick! Maybe I’ll make a few extras for a later giveaway too. Let us know what you do when you pay it forward as well. I love to hear what other people are doing!
Happy Thursday to all of you and good luck!
