PAY IT FORWARD 2012

My pledge? I promise to make something handmade for the first 5 people who comment on this post. The catch? You must then post this on your own LJ/DW/FB/Twitter/Tumblr (wherever you like) and make something for the first 5 people who comment on it.

The rules? Items must be handmade* by you and the recipients must receive them before the end of 2012. So what are you waiting for?

*when it says handmade, it doesn't have to be anything major. It can be anything as simple as some graphics or fic (if you don't want to give out your address), or a card, or origami, crafts, sewing, knitting, food related, anything at all.


Yeah. I don't have anything to do this year so I can do art or music videos or custom tee shirts or come over and tile your bathroom. Forget that last one but let me know if you want to play.

Now I'm off to tile my bathroom.

How about if your gift is art that takes place IN a bathroom? Would that work?

Is there a limit as to how many of these I can comment on and still only offer out 5 myself?

I think I've seen mrstater's name on quite a few so there's probably no limit. :)

You should do your bathroom pink like mine! (or ...not! but we do have vintage 1940s tile, which is cool in a way)

And...sign me up? :D

Oooh! Vintage tiles sounds cool, even if it is pink. ;) However, I'm a blue person so the shower enclosure's in sky blue glass subway tile, which is kind of vintage. A sample of what I hope will be the floor tile is coming today.

You're in!

Your shower project sounds fantastic.

Believe me, I wouldn't have chosen the pink. But since it's what we've got, and it is from the 1940s, I've decided to think that it's got charm of its own. ;) After all, Tonks would surely approve...

And, yay! :)

Never mind tiling it, the whole bathroom redone would be brilliant? ;)

If anyone wants to leap in ahead of me, then they must as I've already signed up for a couple of other f-listers, and even I'm starting to feel the heavy weight of guilt now. If not, I shall return.

May have to extend my planned UK vacation a bit to accommodate.

Have I missed your pay it forward post? Would love to jump in if you do. I have so few LJ friends (but plenty of FB ones, so don't feel sad) that my entire Flist could request something. So, you're in.

No, you haven't missed it. I'm in the middle of it as we speak. Or as some of us type. ;)

And delighted to be in!

Now I've realised that I don't actually ahve to be properly crafty to return the favour (as I'm not remotely) I'm in!

I'm not much into the craft thing either, though I did dabble in candle making for the holidays, so I know where you're coming from. At least you do the writing thing.
