At the beginning of this year I proposed a little challenge on my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MrsMacMakes) The rules were very simple…

“Pay it forward in 2012. I promise to make something handmade for the 1st 5 people who comment below. The rules are: 1) they must also post this status & make something for the 1st 5 people who post comments on their status. 2) It must be made by you and received before the end of 2012.”

I thought this would be a fun challenge as ‘handmade’ could be interpreted as something simple like making someone a cup of tea! Well it seems five people agreed with me and duly took on the challenge and I was left pondering what to make them. I wanted to use this as an opportunity to try some new ideas rather than send out some stock.

Well the ideas started to ferment earlier this month and I excitedly mailed out the first two parcels last week. I honestly can’t remember the last time I was so nervous about hearing a reply. Thankfully both gifts were well received…phew(!) and here are the finished items…
