Paying it Forward Katieroo Style!

I have an amazing blog post to share today! An amazing gesture!

As many of you know, Christy Tomlinson is offering her "She" Workshop for the next few weeks. Let me tell you .. I have been drooling and so excited to take this! Well unfortunantly after crunching numbers this past weekend, and being true to our budget, this month we just couldn't make it happen. I was so sad! I had my list all ready to go, I was eager .... then other expenses came up that trumped my hobby!

So my dear friend Katie won a spot on this workshop thru a pay it forward post that Christy had done on her blog (I had no idea that was happening)! I was so happy for her, called her and we had a great chat! Next thing I know .. Katie calls me back and says that she is giving me her spot on the workshop! I WAS COMPLETELY FLOORED! Here I am in the middle of eating my mashed taters, in front of my family with tears streaming down my face! At first I was like "No way .. you can't do that .. you won"! She didn't give me the choice .. she had already e-mailed Christy! Within 5 min I have a password and e-mail welcoming me to the workshop!

THE BEST PART IS ... when Katie e-mailed Christy to give me her spot, Christy was so touched about what Katie did .....that she gave Katie a spot too! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? Just goes to show you, that kindness is often rewarded!

Here we were last night, squealing like little school girls! The excitement was palpable!

TY TY TY from the bottom of my heart Katie ... I am not sure if you will ever truely know how much this means to me! You did this so selflessly and from a beautiful place in your heart. I will do you proud and pay it forward to someone else in my own way! YOU KNOW I WILL! :)

Here's to many days of creativity, and being a part of circle of our dearest friends who are also participating, sharing our stories and work .. all of us together!

I am not in the least surprized by Katie's generous nature. I heard the happiness in your voice this morning and I too vow to play it forward in the not too distant future
