Going to share a little something with all your crafters today. Do you ever buy a package of something and only use a bit of whats in it? Not sure what to do with the rest of it.. but you know someone could use it?
Well,I'm going to introduce you all to a group and a few new terms. It's a group called AAPSF. So, in this group gals exchange crafting and on occasion non crafting items. This is how it works. Say you have a homemade items, a partial package of flowers, or even a NIP (new in package) item that you no longer like or want. These are called PIF's (pay it forward.. or pass it forward).
Basically in short what everyone does in this group is they post an item they no longer want... and how many "credits" (not money) they want for the item. You list an item and then someone else may want it.. so they "snag" it they put their name on it. You now have a credit to take something else that is listed on the group.
I'm sharing this as it's a great way to do a number of things. Exchange products out for something you want, find things from all over the country that you may not have access to in your area. All you do is at the end of the month send out the items to those whom have taken items from you. Easy enough.
Anywho, I used to own one of these groups.. and now a good friend of mine runs one. So, I thought I would share it with all of you. There's more than just trading but also general discussion on scrappin subjects. All you have to do is sign up.. fill out the application... on it you can put that you saw the group on my blog..
