Celebrate Life is Paying it Forward; Handmade

Handmade logo

A few weeks ago, I started thinking about rewarding  a few readers here at Celebrate Life with some of the handmade items I create.

In my down time my hands stay busy creating; handmade soaps, jewelry, perfumes, body butters, lotions, and cards. It’s not the complete list of things I hand craft, but you get the idea. I love making things!

Recently, I’ve been keeping my hands occupied. It’s so much fun, and dare I say I enjoy it more than knitting; although I like that too. Admittedly, it could be the newness that’s appealing to me. Even with the flurry of crochet objects, I’m still making other handmade crafts.

Many thanks to the talented Kathleen, for moving me into action to Pay it Forward handmade.

I’m really thrilled to be part of this, since I enjoy creating things with my hands, as can be witnessed on my site. Thus far, most of the handmade items I’ve made have been for others, such as the numerous crocheted aminekos I’ve created, or even the machine sewn quilts I’ve helped create; so this is perfect.

What a simply lovely idea, and so thoughtful!

[…] to add… I’m participating in Pay it Forward handmade! Stop by to see what the fuss is […]


“PAY IT FORWARD” is a great idea to enhance relationships and caring for others. I think there’s a movie…and perhaps, a book too? Great that you’re having something like this but I’d pass, Opal.

Would love so much to get a special gift from you and pay it forward…but it’s really expensive to send anything overseas – even the postage for a card costs a bomb, more than the cost of the card and it takes such a long time. Thanks, anyway.

I like the Pay It Forward Handmade idea. I just am not as crafty or creative than I used be so I have no idea what I could possibly make for anyone but a big mess 🙂
