Pay It Forward & Liebster Blog Award

A week or so ago, I saw this on Mel's blog and was lucky enough to be one of the first five to comment. I really like the idea and am excited to pay it forward.
This is how it works:
I promise something handmade to the FIRST 5 people who leave a comment here specifically stating they want to join in the Pay It Forward fun. The original "rules" state that you must repost this status, offering something handmade by you to 5 other people and it must be sent to your 5 people some time in 2011, however I am not requiring this. If you would like to repost this and offer something to your readers, that would be lovely, but feel free to enter even if you do not have the time/money/desire to pay it forward at this time.

When I know which of you will be receiving something, I'll contact you to check a few details, look at your blog to get an idea of your tastes and interests, and create something especially for you. I can't guarantee quite how quickly I'll get the items in the mail (luckily the rules say sometime in 2011), however my plan is to get something out by the end of February.

I was also recently honored by Sarah with this award:
There are a couple of conditions for the award:
You have been TAGGED and want to participate? Then create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image. You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award.You can then choose 3 - 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged. Please note: The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I was asked not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers. Again, I am not adding this requirement for those I'm passing the award on to; that choice is up to the recipients.

As always, the hardest part is to pick who to pass this on to, there are so many bloggers I could give it to, so.......since many of you already know my favorite blogs as I'm often linking to them to give credit for the ideas I've scraplifted, I've simply chosen two new (or new to me) blogs. Please check them out when you have a moment:

BTW - don't you just love how the Internet allows us to "know" and receive awards from people all around the world.

Remember, the first five people who leave a comment here specifically stating they want to join in the Pay It Forward fun will receive something made by me especially for them. Ready, set, GO!!
