Been bartering again....

I love to barter. I just traded a $3.00 pitcher I bought at a thrift shop for 6 crocheted dish cloths. I love these. I never could learn to crochet so I just barter stuff with dear friend whenever I need any. 


I also traded a blue Pyrex Bar Code 475 for a piece I have been wanting this past week. I am awaiting the arrival of my new piece which I'll show you when it arrives. People think I'm crazy for swapping and trading. But sometimes, I buy pieces for less than $3 just to have stuff to trade.


We have a four day week this week so I am really excited about that. Also have our training meeting for VBS this week where we get to look at all the craft ideas they have.


I get to help design and decorate the stage again this year. I had a blast doing that the past year. We are going to need a ton of pool noodles to create some under the sea foliage.

Going to try my hand at making a giant octopus as well.

One Sunday before VBS I will let the kids in Children's Church make sea urchins using 1/2 of a foam ball and toothpicks.

This year is going to be fun to plan the decorating.

You are SO creative!! Submerged is a very fun theme for your VBS. I can't wait to see what you all create this year! Trading/swapping is a great way to get things you want. A time-honored way to do business!! I like those crocheted dishcloths too. Haven't had one is a long time. I CAN crochet, so there is no excuse! LOL
