What is Craft it Forward?
Craft it Forward is where one person sends 5 others something they've made in exchange for the 5 recipients promising to do the same. In theory, this becomes a giant web of people sending each other stuff, while not being overwhelming (since the limit is 5). You also commit to doing this by the end of the calendar year.
How does Craft it Forward work on a blog?
The rules: Craft it Forward 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here... They must in turn post this on their blog and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment. The rules are that it must be handmade by you (sewing, painting, pottery, photography, whatever!), and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
First, write a post on your blog with a link back to wherever you heard about the idea first (I think this is a fun way to see who else is taking part and you may find some fun new blogs while you're at it!)
Then come back and comment here and include a link to your post (this way others get a chance to check out some new blogs, too!)
If you'd like to connect to other bloggers who are "Crafting it Forward", you can either comment on my post here (in which case I will mail the first 5 commenters something), or you can grab a badge/button and start it up on your own blog.
* You don't need a blog to 'craft forward'. Check out the facebook page if you want to do it that way.
