Pay it Forward


I think only once before, I heard that certain Etsians do listings called PIFs or Pass It Forwards and I had completely forgot about this certain 'phenomenon' if you will up until a few days ago when I featured one lovely lady. Carole from Reduxredux on Etsy(Read the feature and enter the giveaway Here) kindly explained to me what a PIF was when she did one to promote The Eclectic Element, her feature and her ongoing giveaway.

"PIF stands for Pay It Forward. It's basically a listing that you post for free or nearly free in order to extend a kindness to someone else. Usually, after you purchase a PIF you post your own in your shop or do something else nice for someone. It's really fun - an addictive!"

After she explained what it was, I was curious so I went on Etsy and searched under the keyword 'PIF.'

I was flabbergasted!! There are over 85 pages of kind hearted Etsians who offer their goods and or services for free! Or a very deep discount where you only pay the listing price and shipping.

It amazes me how much the crafting and artist community can come together and help each other out. I swear, if the whole world were crafters and artists, I think this recession would be a lot easier.

This all makes me want to do more! I enjoy featuring artists and crafters, but I wish there was more that I could do. If you have a chance, go on over to Etsy and look through all the PIFs they have listed. If your really feeling in the mood, list a PIF of your own and join the movement!

When I get better and have the time, I'm definitely going to jump in the Pass it Forward undertaking =]

Love and Energies.
