Hooray for Bartering!

Okay, so you are probably sick of seeing these different filigree heart cards, but I promise none are the same - I'm not recycling old pictures over and over again. These two cards are especially great because I bartered a sweet deal - 5 slotted tools for a few filigree heart cards. My friend Janet (see today's earlier post) had purchased the slotted tools for a quilling class I taught to the young women (ages 12 - 18) at our church. I had been just borrowing the tools for other quilling classes, but then thought I really should just purchase them from her. I tried to pay for them and being the lovely person that Janet is, she didn't want to accept payment for them. Well, that doesn't fly with me when I know that taking advantage of someone's generosity isn't something I intend to make a habit of, SO I bartered. Yep, good old-fashioned bartering! I love bartering and am thinking about starting a campaign to reinstate the system (tongue in cheek).

Three cheers for bartering! Hip! Hip! Hooray!


  1. I am so glad that you were able to do the blog update! I was getting worried that you had fallen off the edge of a quilling tool! Good Barter!!! Your sis - Barbara
