PAY IT FORWARD

I'm pleased to be the winner of ELK's "pay it forward" over at Red Or Gray and would like to keep the spirit alive with my own offering, a set of six notecards, each with a different photo:


The notecard sampling includes: Pine, Winter Beauty, Tread Softly, Return Softly to me, Untitled and Stars Flashing Through Our Hearts.

So, any of you who still enjoy the fine craft of letter-writing, comment on THIS post (and be sure I have your e-mail so that i can reach you) by midnight Ash Wednesday, Feb. 25th. If you're picked, you can keep "pay it forward" in motion by offering something on your blog... maybe a copy of your favorite poem, a colorful stone you've been keeping on the corner of your desk, a drawing or family recipe...

I'd love for people to participate so seasoned bloggers, if you'd make note of this on your blog, I'd be much appreciative!

I'd love to participate because I adore the art of letter writing. E-mail is fine but the written word is divine. Hey, I just made that up.

I just love the "pay it forward" concept. When I was a young woman, my friend lent me $20 one time, and when I tried to pay it back, she said,"keep it going". Someone you meet will need it. And she was right.
It is great energy.
Thanks.

Call me old-fashioned...but I miss the days when writing letters was the norm. Beautiful cards sent in the mail, someone's hand-writing lovingly scrawled on paper, these are all but forgotten in light of e-cards and e-mail. Have you noticed that thank you notes are non-existent? What happened to the day when gift giving was reciprocated by a hand-written thank you note? I digress...

Please include me in your pay-it-forward give-away :) Country Girl Kate sent me.

i would love the opportunity to pay if forward. i also love the fact that you used the term 'ash wednesday' to say when this ended. and i will, indeed, pay it forward if i receive this.

Going to the mailbox with the anticipation of a "real piece of mail" i.e. a handwritten note or letter is still a fond memory for me. The memory gets all junked up with the catalogues, bills, leaflet advertising, etc. but when a "real piece" shows up that is lovely. I try to remember that when I think an email might suffice to thank a hostess for a lovely dinner and try to always respond with a pretty notecard and a handwritten note. Let, I'd love to be a part of pay it forward:)
Thanks.
