Paying it Forward

To my faithful followers (all 2 of you),

Recently, I was the recipient of a random act of kindness.  
What kind of random act you ask?  
A few weeks ago, I  was sent a gift in the mail... two tea towels adorned with tea pots to be exact. They look like this (cute... I know).  
My friend Courtney was this giver.  No reason, just because.  How cool is that?  I mean I knew Courtney was cool, but that was just straight 
t up awesome.  Thanks Court... it seriously made my day/week/year.  
I thought about sending her a thank you card and showering her in gifts of my own but I decided that Courtney would probably want me to pay it forward and send someone else a random gift.  
So here's the thing.  Since Courtney and I reconnected because of our blogs, I decided to have a little contest here.  Whoever leaves a comment (about anything) gets their name put in a hat.  By the end of the day on Wednesday I will
 randomly pull out a name and whoever he/she is, will receive this in the mail. 
It's a grocery bag dispenser, lovingly made by me.  It's not perfect, but it's functional.  I even made it extra large for all of those grocery bags hanging out in the bottom of your pantry.  If you already have one that's okay, enter your name anyway and when you receive it in the mail turn around and give it to someone else... you get it now, right?  Paying it forward?  
Courtney: (you are eligible!)
Happy commenting!

I think this is the cutest idea. And if I win, I can't guarantee that I'll be able to make anything half as cute to give to someone else, but I could buy something =)
