WOYWW 216

Hello Wednesday Peeps,

HAPPY WOYWW 216.... if you don't know what we're on about here, then pop over to Julia's Blog at the STAMPING GROUND and have a look. It's a great way of nosying round other people's desks to see what they are up to.



Right - so this week it's a shot of what I am doing just now..... making little baggies for my friend who makes jewellery. 
In exchange for this mind numbingly tedious task of cutting, scoring, folding and sticking, we usually barter, and this time she is giving me 2 bags of fabric 'offcuts' and a Frappe in town on Thursday morning :-D
OK 50 done and 50 more to go !!!! :-D

See you later and thanks for dropping by :-) xx

That is a fair exchange. happy crafting #12

Vicky F. AKA Crafting Vicky said...

That's a pretty fun exchange! Not sure that I would be able to do this mind numbing job... but you seem to be doing good!

Bernice said...

Oh that does look like a lot of work - surely you could get a die to do all the cutting and scoring - it would make it a bit faster!

Your little baggies are brilliant! (Of course!!) Happy WOYWW

Kimberly Hogan said...

That must be one heck of a cup of Frappe'. JK, i think it's great you and your friend barter and trade off. You're half way to your Frappe. Have a great week. (((HUGS)))

Hi Ike
that is one heck of a job you have going on there but I think your price was fair.
It is great when crafters can share different things like that as not everyone has the same skills.
Sending hugs for WOYWW and hope you enjoy the rest of your week

You bags look great, and bartering is always so much fun when both parties gain goodies.
Have a great week and I hope you enjoy your Frappe!

One hand washes the other. Love the exchange.

Julia Dunnit said...

I wondered why there was so much white - thought perhaps you'd got a job lot to alter! Good for you..that Frappe will go down really well...let us ooh and ahh over the fabrics too huh?!

Julie Ann Lee said...

I think barter is a brilliant idea. I just made a card for a lady who lives in Spain. She wanted to pay, but I suggested sending me lots of Spanish ephemera - labels, stamps all sorts instead. Hope you enjoy that frappe! Julie Ann #17 x

okienurse said...

love to barter but in this case I am glad it is you and not me! 50 more and you are off for that Frappe! Have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #71

Lynda Norton said...

oh my what stamina you have, but they are pretty bags and well worth the swap. Soon be done (hopefully)

Danie May said...

What a great trade off, I think that this sort of trade/barter system is fabulous for all types of things. Enjoy your frappe and can't wait to see what you create with your fabric offcuts! Happy WOYWW! Danie #74

Claire said...

sounds a great system! I wish more of us in the West bartered - we have so many gifts and talents to exchange!
happy WOYWW and have a great week :)

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Happy WOYWW my friend. Hope you have some LOUD music on while cutting folding and sticking!

Mmm we love frappe, well worth the tediousness of cutting and scoring we think.

Waving hi from the bears @#90

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Half way there LOL - I find repetitive stuff therapeutic - but 100 - whew... LOL - by the way I think someone played around with the WOYWW numbers again - you are #13 - mmm lucky number - well it is for me anyway... thanks for popping over - Happy WOYWW - Mxx #4

Karen Ives said...

A Frappe...no wonder you went for it!

Morti said...

Thanks for swinging by my blog today.

After the endless amount of wedding stationery and favour boxes, you totally have my empathy on such a laborious, repetitive job! Still, half done and on the home strait now...

Annie said...

Lovely to hear of your bartering....there should be lots more of it in the world :-)
Hugs,

A great idea bartering but would not fancy doing your part. Made a lot of menu cards, place cards etc for my sister - as you say quite tedious.Like the sound of the off cuts etc though. Happy WOYWW Thanks for visiting me. Anne x

Love the barter ...... sure you got the best deal??!
Very pretty bags, enjoy the frappe

Good grief that would send me scatty! I can barely make one box correctly with the sides the right length etc! Have a great week! #2

Kristina said...

Ike,
Very nice of you to make those bags for your friend. Enjoy your coffee treat out in town! You cracked me up when you said, "... mind numbingly tedious task of cutting, scoring, folding and sticking,..." You are a hoot my friend!
Peace,
Kristy

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Ike
I hope its a large Latte, as you say a very boring job, but I guess someone has to do it.
