ATG Trade Up Challenge

Filed under: Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 8:18 AM

Two weeks ago I told you about a challenge issued by Apron Thrift Girl Selena
and Thrifty Chick Amy.  

It is a swap or barter challenge based upon the One Red Paperclip story.

I was curious and interested to take part in the experiment. 

Life however has other plans for me.

You know how it is – things come up.

So I am going to have to take myself out of the competition. 
                                                                   I wish the others well and I will be watching.
To those of you I talked with about trades, I will be in touch.



  1. My sides hurt from laughing. I love the dog picture.

  2. That dog picture is great! Did he drink too much green beer last night celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

    • Altho I have a bug again it is the computer that is sicker and unwilling to cooperate.
      March is just a busy month for dogs as well.

  5. Hello!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I dont want to get you as hooked as me but check out ebay seller type-tiques they sell heaps of the blocks. You can use a regular ink pad but for the best results you use a brayer (mini rubber paint roller thing) and an oil or acrylic based ink. You can get it all pretty cheap off ebay, just search for letterpress ink!

    • While I do have some virus, it is more computer troubles that keep me from posting plus several of the dogs had yearly vet day. That involves an investment of time, more than one day of prep.
