Made By Me *UPDATE*

I'm sure many of you have seen the latest Facebook meme that's going around: Made by Me.

It goes like this:

Made By Me

The first five people to respond to this post will receive something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- It will be made just for YOU.
- It will be done this year (2009).
- It will be something made in the real world and not something over the internet.
- It might be art. It might be craft. It might be food.

In return, all you need to do is post this text into a note of your own and make five things for five other people.

etc. etc.

Well, a carpenter I know posted this recently, and I just could not resist something hand-made by this guy. He once made some kind of wooden whirly gig from medieval prints he'd seen. I couldn't resist!

So I reposted, and got my five (+) responses, and I'm going to keep you all posted on what I'm making for them! I'll instructablize all of the projects, and probably make some sort of "Made by Me" guide.

If you're on facebook, I encourage you to join this thread, and pass it along! If you're not, and you're interested, try to start an email thread. Come back to get inspiration for your gifts, and make sure to post your own results!

Let me know what you've done!

***** UPDATE ***********************************************************
I think what I failed to mention here, is that this is a neat idea to share with your friends. I would not want a stranger to respond to my posting, and I wouldn't respond to a stranger's. Mostly because I don't want crap. I want to make cool stuff I know my friends will like and get cool stuff made by my friends.

If you try this out and get people you don't know responding to you, I would just ignore them! Or put something in the main text about how this is for people you know ONLY!

Good luck!

Yes, problem is, no one I know locally (that are also on Facebook) would make anything for me or anyone for that matter.

I hope that is not just a way to collect email addies or street addresses :-)

You can only tag people you already know and are connected with on FB. And I only tagged the people I wanted to get cool things in return from, since part of the agreement is that they have to repost the same thing! Fortunately, some of the other people I'm "connected" to also replied, and now I'm totally psyched to see what comes from them!
Oh, I didn't mean YOU were doing what I feared. I just meant that, in a similar way that lists are passed around to gather names, etc. it is conceivable that it could be seen, and distributed to friends, and friends of friends, and so on, But as long as there is no one address to return things or info to, I suppose that is not really practical......sorry, I withdraw my potential conclusion :-)

:D
Ok, two of us, so far, have posted on FB; once those that answer my posting post their own post, do I then ask them (privately, I would hope) for their address? Will anyone send their address to someone with a face like mine LOL

If you don't know them, I guess so!

I never thought about people doing this with people they don't know.
But I'm only friends with people on FB that I know personally, so I guess the thought never occurred to me! Which is why I think I was confused by your comment earlier and why snowpenguin's parents weren't down with it.

I'm interested to hear how this turns out for you!
Well, these aren't people that I don't know exactly. Most of them are friends from here or from Care2 (a place I haunted for a few years) and we've known each other in the virtual world for nearly 5 years or so now.

I have 2 friends from Care2 willing to exchange addresses and things (one even asked me in PM what colors I like :-)
