A crash course in changing the world.
One of my friends is starting up a crafts business where she makes bracelets, necklaces, clothing, pins, accessories, etc. I didn't really have any extra money to give her to help in the business start up, but because I do loads of craft stuff at home, I had a bunch of supplies that I gave her. Yarn, embroidery floss, safety pins, fabric, needles, thread, felt, and some plastic accessory pieces. All in all, the supplies I gave her probably totaled around $100, so it was a pretty good transaction. In trade, she's making me a new purse!
