Pay it forward - would you like to join in?

I have just received the two most lovely packages in the mail.
Oh how I love lovely packages that come in the mail.

I was fortunate enough to be chosen as one of the recipients of Rachel's (from Heart of Light) lovely pay it forward parcels.
Just look at these lovely things.



Hand printed cards. Weekly menu planner. And one of her sweet headbands.

The menu planner is such a great idea. You write the ingredients you need at the bottom there and then it tears off so you can take it to the store with you - cool huh!
And this is so timely, as I was saying to Aaron just the day before this arrived that I need to start planning our meals again!
(Unfortunately the parcel arrived on the rainiest weekend we've had for a long time so it got a little wet. I managed to dry it out ok but the glue at the top of the pad had kinda dissolved - hence the bulldog clip).

But wait there's more!
As if that wasn't enough.
I was extra fortunate to be chosen as the recipient of Jac's (from Coco Sunday) extra parcel she was giving away. (Rachel was one of Jac's pay it forward recipients).

So I received two wonderful parcels in one week!



Jac's pretty photo cards and one of her gorgeous pouches.



I love the fabric on the inside.
(If you want one of these for yourself by the way she sells them in her Etsy shop here)

So anyway, the deal with all this pay it forward love is that now I in turn must pay it forward.
So would you like to join in?
I need to find 5 people to send a lovely package to. If you are chosen you in turn need to send a parcel to 5 people.
It's low pressure - the gifts can be small, and you don't have to get them out immediately.
So if you'd like to play just leave a comment on this post and on Friday I will randomly pick 5 people to join in the fun.

I would love to join in, but I'm not sure that I could find 5 people to send a package to so I'll skip this on but mayby catch the next one.
