So, this has been flying around Facebook, and I thought it would be fun to bring it to the Blogoshpere:
"2013 Creative-Pay-It-Forward: the first five people to comment below will receive something from me within the calendar year. Your gift will be a surprise and will arrive without warning. The catch? You must post this invitation on your blog, as well.
So, here is what I would like you to do:
1. Comment below that you would like to receive something from me within 2013.
2. Also, write in your comment the name of your blog so that I can learn something about you. In this way, I might be able to make your gift more personal.
3. Then go and post this invitation on your blog so that you can pay your creative abilities forward!
3. Finally, email me your full name and address for mailing your gift.
I am seriously excited!
Now, here are the humble beginnings of my first CQJP 2013 block.
My mother, a collector of all things beautiful, gave me a bag of antique lace for my birthday (a week ago). When I opened the bag and saw this lace motif, I was astounded that it fit perfectly on the fabric I had chosen for this square.
Then, after stitching the buttonhole wheels, I discovered a set of buttons she had given me,as well, that were the perfect color.
