something in the air

so i saw on sabine's blog something she had seen on scrappy's blog: a 'pay it forward' game. I decided to participate and so can you! Anyone can play, but the rules are:

I will send a handmade gift to the first three people who leave a comment here requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
