Craft it Forward

***this post will stay up top for the month of October so please join in CRAFT IT FORWARD! please scroll down for new postings***  +++++come on down!  it's fun to share your art.***

Over on my friend Susan's blog:  My Mother's Apron String-Susan Tierney Cockburn she is doing this Craft it forward project and I thought it would be a fun and sharing thing to do so I'm about you?
Here is post from her blog:

It seems only fitting that on Saturday, October 1st, I received in the mail gifts from a fellow Blogger--Char of We Blog Artists, with a "Craft it Forward" concept she came up with, to share with five followers who posted on her blog, her beautiful creations. We needed to make the promise to do the same on our blogs.

I say "fitting" because on October 8th would have been Kelly's 39th birthday and I had decided to make the month very special in her memory. Kelly's blog, with her best friend, Kandyce, is Notions & Threads and both of them would have loved to participate because they knew the meaning of sharing and giving in the most extreme way.

***note from me (stampersue):  also fitting for me because on Oct. 25 my son Michael would have been 34 and so I think it would be nice for me to craft it forward because he was a very sharing person and would given you the shirt off his back if you needed it.***

So, in addition to creating every post this month with Pumpkin, which was Kelly's favorite, I will continue the "Craft it Forward" for the first five (5) people who comment on this post and send you a craft that I have handmade. I believe reaching out to one another through crafts is a way we share ourselves.

The rules are simple:

1) Comment    2)Agree to post the handmade gift on your blog and;   3)Make a handmade gift to pass on to 5 people who comment on your blog.
***If anyone would like to join in but they don't have a blog to show off what they craft ..... I would be glad to put up a picture on my blog for you.  Just comment here that you would like to play then email me a picture of your project***
