This went around a while back and was revived recently by Emmms, whose blog I signed up on to receive cool stuff. The giving is the more important part though so I’m hereby opening up for three people to  receive a scrummy gift from me sometime in the next 6 months.

The principle (if you’ve never heard of PIF) is basically a bit of altruistic sharing of the love. Here are the rules: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange, and who make the same pledge on their own blogs. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 6 months, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward.

The principle fits in very nicely I think with the “Buy Handmade” movement that Etsy promotes and I have kind of unofficially joined in on.

So - who’s first?

    I may not be among the first three, but I’ll take a chance. I like altruistic endeavors.
    I’m not a fiber artist, though, so I may have to give way to those who are such.

    So that’s three! Welcome all :-)

    Moon Rani, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t matter not being a fibre artist - as long as the gift is something specially hand-made.

    Don’t forget to post on your blogs, and check your mailboxes, oh sometime in the next 6 months! (surprises are half of the fun)
