Sweet Camille

Having a cup of tea this morning and catching up on some of my favorite blogs. We've been working hard on the shoot for the last two days. I'm told I collapsed face down into my pillow on Friday after the first day but today am energized by all the talent and good friends I've been surrounded by all weekend. We got so much amazing stuff and I am so happy with these I can't even tell you.
I'll be editing all day today and so will show you some sneak peeks later on...promise!

Couldn't wait though to post about this...Camille's idea for a Pay it Forward--a kind of "giving event"! I love the idea and so want to offer it up too! {Camille is my incredibly talented blogger friend from Rtemis: Huntress of Epicurean Delights (cute right?) who's culinary delights have my mouth watering every time and who's sweet comments on my blog keep me posting whenever humanly possible!}

See the rules below her scrumptious looking pictures:

the three photos above are by Camille from her blog Rtemis

"Pay it Forward Exchange:
Here are the rules: I agree to send something fun, cute, and nice to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on. Unfortunately, due to postage costs, I can only pay it forward within the United States. If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 blog owners to leave a comment!

You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who comment on your blog so that this continues.
When I have the first three to comment I will email you a request for your shipping address and I will send out something that I hope will make you smile!"

(I know exactly what I'm going to give!)

Huzzah for Elizabeth and Cara!!! Don't forget to send me your mailing addresses to bonbonoiseau@gmail.com and follow camille's rule for the pay it Forward event of the century!

Bonbon Oiseau said...

trupeach said...

aaa haaaa...excellent! Thanks again to camille for the great idea...

vana chupp said...

This is such an amazing idea! Good for you to pay if forward!

Here I am clicking on my computer after two hot and draining days at a soccer tournament and I'm suddenly perky because I can't believe what I'm seeing!

I never expected to see my photos on a blog and I am all the more happy because I am so fond of this blog. I am inspired each time I read Your Destiny and it helps me to be creative in my life, which in turn helps me to be creative when I bake. Thank you!

I'd love to take the credit for pay it forward, but I found it at Fifi Flowers and thought it was nifty. I'm glad it is being passed around with enthusiasm.

I can't say it enough: thank you for posting such lovely words and my photos!!!

aaaw, GREAT idea! so glad elizabeth smatched one up - i am sure your goodies will be fabulous. and I am FOR SURE commenting on her blog first ;)

this is sounding suspiciously like the underwear chain letter i got in grade school. you were supposed to send one pair of underwear (new) to the first person on the list, mail the letter to 10 people, and within weeks, receive over two dozen pairs.

needless to say, those mythical undies never materialized. maybe older, more responsible adults will have better luck with it.

Boy did I miss out!

please sir said...

I love her photos too - and those amazing recipes!

Marie Louise said...

Already drooled over these goodies over at Camille's blog. It's not a good thing for me to see such goodies so late in the evening. They make me hungry! Love the Pay it Forward idea that is taking the blog world by storm!

Elizabeth said...

So exciting! I can't wait! I will come up with some nifty goodies to share and post about it later this week. What a fun idea...

Tartelette said...

I just posted about how I used the "maple crack"!!

Camille is one of my bestest friends and she is truly as sweet as her blog makes her out to be! How nice it is to read about her this way.

trupeach said...

The PIF sounds fun!

Photoshoots are exhausting, aren't they? Love all the creative energy they provide though....
