Imagine my surprise when Merry aka Wendy contacted me back at the beginning of May to say that she was going to send me some items under ‘paying it forward’.  Wendy lives in Gordonvale in Queensland Australia.  But I often pop by to read her blog but sometimes I forget to leave a comment.  Such a lovely act of Kindness should not go unnoticed so I thought I would blog it.

"Pay It Forward"

is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.



I received a lovely present from Wendy consisting of some gorgeous linen feeling papers from Blue Edge Crafts, plus a stamp sadly I’ve not yet been able to use yet but looking forward to it soon.

I am one of those people who love the feel of paper so I keep getting them out and stroking them.   Crazy I know :)

I also received a lovely message from Wendy in a card.  Also a picture post card  of Gordonvale.  Since I became a follower of Wendy, I also periodically look at the Gordonvale Town blog.



If I ever get myself organised it  a really good idea to reciprocate to other fellow crafters.  My problem is getting organised in my personal life as I like to leave organisation at work to some degree – where it belongs.  My only other problem I can foresee is that I’ve no idea how to use those electronic number generators – so mine would be a hat with number written on bits of paper!!  lol

Well I’ve just stopped for a bit as I’ve have loads of jobs to do today and Joe is helping me organise my craft room which is is the making

thanks for stopping by reading my blog and leaving a comment

best wishes
