About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

It's my turn to Pay It Forward (PIF) so if you would like a little present from me, come play along!
Here are the "rules"  I used  Pileofabric and issainohandmade to help me write them.

1. I will create a crafty gift for 5 people who comment to this post. This is a surprise, and will arrive to you anytime within the next 365 days. I will quilt or cross-stitch you a special item. I invite international Folks too !

2.In signing up for Pay it Forward (PIF) you are committing yourself to the Chain...Someone pays it  forward to you. You pay it forward to others! Just post this, or something similar so others can get involved. Basically you will create your own post where you create gifts for people as well. It can be any number of people you want.

3. You need to have an active blog of your own...{or some way to post  your PIF info like a flickr, pinterest, or Facebook account. Basically you'll need a place to announce your own PIF and to post some pics of the process.} after you post and contact me I have 365 days to get you a gift. 

4. After commenting on this post, post something similar on your blog...so you can spread the PIF love. I will email you asking for your mailing address {and the online address where you are posting your PIF info} so I can mail your present.  You dont qualify unless you post.

5.Just let me know if you want to play by leaving a comment saying that you want to play with your email address or be a reply blogger. Remember you have 365 days to mail your gift. Example: Melissa from issa.ino:handmade ask me what I wanted. I will email you, you will post, I will email you a few questions asking for hints of interests. (see my example below) 


I never know where my pins are and these items are just suggestions that I saw in blog land I love. I also hate the color yellow. This is the info Melissa wanted from me.
