Thank You & Pay It Forward!

First, I want to thank everyone who left a comment from yesterdays berzerk blog. I now know that lurkers have voices, and wonderful ones at that!! Reading your comments and feedback is very enjoyable to me. We should all be so encouraging, even when we're shy - everywhere we go.

I am a shy person, I grew up being embarrassed to make any moves (at school) - I was embarrassed to eat my balogna sandwiches because I thot other kids would think they smelled bad, embarrased of my skinny legs and white-as-a-ghost skin, embarrassed of my voice, and so on through the years. shy as can be. Still now, a little bit of that shows it's ugly head, I get nervous when I go to the check-out at the store, especially if the checker is friendly. Why? What's gonna happen, someone's gonna say How are you? Anyway, here, we should all feel pretty safe, and secure with ea. other. No one can see us, no one can see our skinny legs.

Thank you all, very much, for your encouragement and support. I love you.



Let's play Pay It Forward!! EEK!!

And sooooooo...I am entering into the following contract with the first 5 people who comment on this post and then commit to do the same on their blog. Just read below and if you feel up to the task copy the following into your blog and leave me a comment.

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. Whatcha get is whatcha get.
2. What I create will be just for you, with love.
3. It’ll be done this year (2009).
4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. (unlikely!) Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something strange.
6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.
7. Send your mailing address - after I contact you.

Come on, don't be shy. Even if you don't think you're the creative type, you might end up surprising yourself - and making 5 other people very happy too!

So there you go, be the first 5 to leave a comment and be a part of it! Please leave your email address as well so I can contact you :) PLEASE LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSSSS!!

PS. I got this idea from MUCH LOVE blog, go visit her world {and leave her some love}!!

Oh MAN! I would so love to do this! Only problem is I don't think I have that many readers on my blog yet to really make it fair. Mostly it's my mum. (kidding. Sort of.)

But if you like, i will make you something and send it to you anyway. ^_^
