This Could Be Scary, But....

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm playing a "craft-it-forward" game from Profgrrrrl. I am *not* a crafty person. When I was in CGIT, it was a running joke about how bad I was at crafts.... one time we made something with felt and googly eyes for Halloween - a bat maybe? - and mine literally turned into a sticky ball of felt with eyes in random locations. I can guarantee that whatever I make will not involve a glue gun. But, in the spirit of the game, I will try to think of something I can do a decent job at.
So, here’s how it works:

The first 5 people to respond to this post will get something made by me! This offer does have some restrictions and limitations so please read carefully:
  • I make no guarantees that you will like what I make but I will do my best.
  • It will be done in the next few months.
  • Exactly what I make and send will be a surprise.
It could be a photograph, baked treats, a knitted item (although this would take longer) - something that qualifies as crafty

In return, all you need to do is post this text to your own blog and make 5 things for 5 others. Remember, this is a "craft it forward" so action is required.
If you're interested, be one of the five to leave me a comment with your email (or link to it) and we'll see what I can manufacture in the coming months.

As phd me said, "This should be entertaining."


  1. hahaha... that's cute idea. I don't blog, so I won't be able to participate, but I like the idea.
    btw, congrats on your new blog!

  2. I'll do it! I would love to get something from you - and to have a reason to craft it forward (if you will). Let me know what I need to do.

    Glad you started a blog - we need more academic mommas writing and sharing our experiences.

  3. ooooooo...I'll do it too. Did I make it to your 5? I know I'm a smidge behind. Lemme know so I can craft it forward too. =)

    Welcome aboard the blog train!!!
