~2011 Give Aways ~

Each month in 2011, I will be having a give away of 1 piece
of original art plus a little extra happy tucked inside the gift package.
Everyone who comments that month on Ragamuffin's Gal's Studio
will be eligible for that month's give away.
I will announce the winner on the last day of the month.

This is my little way of saying Thank You
for being my blog friend!

I have always loved 
the whole concept of 
Paying It Forward
So I have jumped on board to join Jo and Natalie 
in their Pay It Forward adventures.

Here is what I am going to do:

For the first 5 people who post a comment 
on this post,  will receive a package which will include
some original art from me and a few more goodies.
  Your part is to pay it forward to at least 5 people
sometime in 2011.  You can choose your own way
of paying it forward. Here are some ideas:
give away or donate a piece of your art,
volunteer to help for at least 1 hour,
treat a co-worker to a soda,
make a donation to a worthy cause,
plant a tree,
write a letter to someone telling them
how much you appreciate them,
get to know and befriend someone
who needs a friend.

Finally, write and tell me what you did
and I will  anonymously post about it!

Please post a comment saying that you are intending
to join in on the fun and then go to my profile and click the
email button and send me your address.
That is all you need to do!

I hope your weekend has been happy
and filled with all the things you love!

Well, I'm number 7 - bummer. Of course, I do have quite a bit of your goodness already. I guess I shouldn't be greedy.
