claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
so a long time ago, i signed up for a crafty pay it forward
thinking i would FOR SURE be able to think of something to make
then i got nervous and shoved it out of mind…
i could make things covered in glitter or a kindermusik certificate
i could make cheese dip or any length of finger knitting you want
but when i tried to think of something to actually OFFER, i got nervous.
then this package arrived.
and i felt like i stole this crafty goodness
because i didn’t pay it forward.
but oh, thank you, katie.
you paid it forward.
a sweet, sweet pillow that found its home in our cozy corner
and oh, hello, eliza, would you like to run
out of your bath and get in the picture?
well, sure you do.
so i used the thrifted placemats that i love…such happy prints
reminding me of when i was six and could get lost in patterns
i sewed little pouches…and i humbly offer them to anyone
officially, the rule of a crafty-pay-it-forward is that you
put yourself out there to make something for three people
and then they make something for three and the goodness
keeps on going and going…
and really, if i can do it, you can do it.
