pay it forward / lucky you

ETA: So it was brought to my attention that I contradicted myself while trying to combine both the "pay it forward" and "lucky you" challenges. So I will count five people rather than three.

So I've read a couple of friends' blogs lately who have a similar made similar offers but they are slightly different, so I will include both parts here. This is the basic idea:

1) The first 5 people to leave a comment on this post will receive a gift from me sometime in the next month!

2) When and what you receive will be a surprise!

3) Then you have to post this "Pay it Forward" challenge on your blog, then come back and leave a 2nd comment telling me you've done it.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!}

Just a little tidbit of fun for those who love to WIN ANYTHING/better the world through kindness!! Good luck!! Happy commenting!

Hi Ashley,

Do I get to play, or am I disqualified? I like the whole year instead of a month. It gives opportunity to do something nicer. I think I'll do that with your goody from me, is that OK? (Hopefully it won't take that long though.)

Is it the first 3 people or the first 5 people? You contradicted yourself. I saw this on another friends' blog the other day. Very cool!

wow! that filled up fast! I might could try it out on my own blog anyway though...

Ashley, Don't count me as one of the five. Let Bethaney take my place instead. Thanks!
