Pay it Forward

Ok, so the other day I got a random comment on my sexy laundry post. I always get excited when new people comment and I always check out their blog as well. The current post she had for that day was this:

The first 3 people that comment on this blog post, will get something awesome handmade by me, within 12 months. Might I add that this generous time limit is awesome? If you want to join the pay it forward mania, tell me and then post something on your own blog to pay it forward.

She only had 1 comment so far and I didn't know if I should comment to get something free and handmade by this what seemed-to-be-a-cool-person. I timidly went for it and she seemed happy to make something for a stranger. Yay! I was so excited. So now I am paying it forward. The first 3 people who comment on this post will get something handmade by me within the next 12 months. I'm not promising great artisitc ability, but I will try. If you live where I have to mail it, it will likely be something small and light, but still awesome. I'm just cheap like that. So comment people! I want something else to add to my to-do list and I know you do to!

This is my monkey boy:

He was hungry for a banana. He used his concentration face while getting it opened. He refused any help. -- "MY do it!"

He used his sad face to express that he was upset that he peeled too much.

He used his pouty face during several failed attempts to replace the missing peel.

His happy face came back when Mommy salvaged the detached peel with some masking tape.

The stop-taking-my-picture-and-let-me-eat-my-banana-in-peace face.
Oo oo. Ah ah.

Now don't forget to comment.


  1. Wow 6 kids. Awesome! I don't know where you live. I'm in California. I have just gotten into reading the list of Mormon Mommy blogs. Love them. Yours looks cute. love the pics of your son. Contact me at

  2. i'll comment, but you don't have to make me anything. i just love jason.

  3. I'll comment. And I won't mind if you end up outsourcing to any of the other resident artists you have with you. :)

    I can't believe how much more expressive Jason is since I last saw him! And Rachel, too, is a veritable little person. I saw the video of her walking. It's one of my favorites!

  4. Ah crap! I'm #4! It's this time difference...DANGIT! I also love Jason. Your kids are so cute! Can I have them? :)

  5. Congratualations ladies!

    Lisa - Glad to meet you! I will email you soon to get your address.

    Chera - Outsourcing is good. I was thinking of doing that.

    Amber - You still win. Since Jayne technically forfeited hers, you can have her spot. No you cannot have my kids. Then I would have to start all over.

    Jayne - Just kidding. I will still make you something, but don't expect it to be as nice as something Somer would make. Maybe I will outsource to Wendy.

    The pressure is on...
