Great Idea For Christmas Gifts - Bartering!

I barterz for Chrishmush?
Here is a wonderful idea for Christmas brought to us by Deborah at her blog Antiquity Oaks.
It involves bartering your skills, crafts, baked goodies or your stuff with other bloggers to use as Christmas gifts.
I love this concept. You can read all about it over at this link:

Antiquity Oaks: Planning for Christmas

If anyone would be interested I could barter any of the following:
I make the following:
- Goat's milk soap
- Dead sea salt balt salts or scrubs
- Lip Balms
- Laundry Soap Starter kits [just add water! instructions incl.]
- Candles
- Mini quilts [wall hangings]

- I also have "stuff", mostly from my craft stash:

-Fabric - lots of fabric - mostly quilting fabric
-Thread [new, unused spools]

Plus other miscellaneous stuff I can't think of right now, but may add in the future. Or just ask - I may have it!

Go ahead and take a look at the link.

Just a general comment that Skippymom is the center of my world and is the prettiest Blogger I know. She adds the lemon to my furniture polish always.

Awww, what a cute comment from pooldad :)
I will barter you stuff!!! For myself though, not for gifts, cuz I'm selfish like that. What could I possibly give you that you'd like though? No seriously, I can't think of anything :(
You have lots of stuff I want though...
