So as I mentioned in my previous post, I hosted my 1st ‘pay it forward art party’. I had 2 ladies and my stepdaughter gathered in my kitchen to make some necklace pendants with Lisa Pavelka’s Magic-Glos™. I think it was fun. At least they said it was and asked that I host another one.
The prerequisite for the “pay it forward” party was that they had to make 2 items. One pendant for themselves to take home and one for someone else with an encouraging message. It could be for someone they already knew or it could be for a stranger. They left the one’s for strangers with me to sell in the Etsy shop (portions of the proceeds going towards local charities). All the pendants turned out great – I think they even surprised themselves as they shared their creations.
And for me, I’m pleased to know that they had a great time – but even more so, I’m thrilled to think that people (who were not at the event and don’t know a thing about it), will be blessed by these encouraging works of handmade art.
Great job everyone! I’m so proud of you!
