Oh I Wish... for a handmade gift!

Pay It Forward 2012 Project *
Erin Keane
Is the host of Pay It Forward
Erin explains how this project is stemmed from a 
Facebook challenge, which took place at the beginning of the New Year for 2011.
You can read about it here as she explains how the process of "pay it forward" came about.
I also, had the great opportunity of participating in this last year of 2011.
It was very inspiring!
I received all five handmade gifts.
Created and crafted by very talented, beautiful artful souls.
I made new friends along the way!
Which I am, still in contact with, to this very day.

I also want to give credit to 
Who is always so willing to share and inspire others with her 
art, thoughts, tutorials, and links to such projects/swaps as this one right here.
Thank you!

Creating art and sharing our talents with others who are like minded...
has a very powerful and inspiring effect on us all.

  8. Hi April, thank you so much for the package that I received in the mail today. The envelope was so cheery among the boring bills. Thank you for the lovely card and the kit of tags and papers. Small precious goodies that I really enjoyed receiving.

    I am still looking for my three and had to change my blog address so I just wanted to include the url to the post.

    Have a happy day!
