I can cross something off my list. Passing On. Not the permanent life altering passing on to the next life (oh now that's deep huh!), but the passing on of the pass it on project.
Remember my post about being a lucky duck here? I told you about being part of the Pass It On project...... it was months ago so if you don't remember I understand. I slapped myself for being so slow with it.
So what was my problem with getting it done?
The "What": It wasn't that I didn't know what to do. It wasn't that I didn't know what to pass on.
The "When": I certainly knew when to pass it on, and that was much sooner than I eventually did!
The "Where": It could be anywhere, there was no limit.
The "Why": Basically to perform a random act of kindness. Why do something nice? Because we all can!
The "Who": And herein lies the problem.......it was that I love all my blog friends so much I could not decide who to pass it on too!
Like Lay's tater chips, I did not think I could pick just one. But I could not send to 20 (unlike my crazy Pass It On mentor).
|The scientific genius|
I also had to determine if the person plucked from the bowl would be able to participate because there is a commitment. Then I had to say to myself..... self, be not afraid. Just offer it up, if they can participate they will. If not, it's not personal so get over it. Then I quit talking to myself.
So someone received these baubles of kitchen beauty.
I reused the original Pass It On paint chips that I thought were so darn clever......
Packaged up the goods and shipped them off to where the yellow jasmine blooms.
But Bliss, you ask, who did they go too and what are these jeweled pieces of art?
These are cake testers. You know, the diva version of the familiar toothpick. A couple years ago #2 daughter started making and selling them to pay for her gas to college. You can read a bit about them on her shout out page, or see more on her Etsy site.
The cake testers are unique, original, useful and pretty....... like the blogger who received them. I put them together specially for her with agates and all glass beads. I also told her every time she stabs the helll out of a cake she can think of me.
The recipient blogger doesn't like to bake, not even a little, but from time to time she has too and since she is the queen of her kitchen she deserved to have a tiny scepter of kitchen bling.
This gal can whip up a truffle with a cake filling and you do need a tester for that...
Or she can turn you on to a new beer because she's friendly like that....
She hosts home tours that make you drool (you may never see mine but not for lack of trying only lack of cleaning). She might just be one of the reasons you are reading this now - she brought us together when our blogs were infants. She has a secret crush on a musician that I would tell you about, but some things are private in blogland. Funny how well we get to know folks in a short amount of time. My all time favorite link party also happens at her place (notice the cute Valentine by Moi when you click).
And she dooo love her some Halloween. If there is some link thing and project judging going on this Fall, SO count me in (insert my evil laugh here).
She is a friend too many, and I doos think of her as one of mine. Heck I even spray painted coke cans in pastel colors inspired by her. It's pretty inspiring to be able to inspire someone to paint coke cans to begin with, 'ya know?
So I should doo like ya'll and be a tease (the Northerner said ya'll. Or is that yawl?). Tell you I'll have the reveal tomorrow. But I'm way too nice to leave you hanging like that.
So in my very best James Bond voice I give you the recipient of my pass it on project........... Doo's, Debbie Doos.
So because I couldn't send a cake tester to all my bestest buddies, in July I will be hosting a giveaway so everyone can enter to win one. Details on that and also my very first link party with 4 other great bloggers......... coming soon!
