One Green Paperclip, KAOS 91.1 Banquet Tickets, A Pashmina, and The Keg


Alright, people, I know you've been wondering if this little Green Paperclip in Fort McMurray project died a quick death - but it didn't. It was simply on hiatus for a bit while I attended to some other things (conferences, trivia, and the like) and the Intrepid Junior Bloggers got healthy again after being the victims of some nasty virus going around.

As we left it last time I had in hand banquet tickets for the upcoming fundraiser banquet for KAOS 91.1. I'd been delighted when they offered two tickets for the hockey memorabilia, and so the search for someone interested in the tickets began.

That's when I heard from Uzma from Nisa Collection, a home-based clothing business I have written about previously (and bought a beautiful outfit from, too). Nisa Collection was offering a gorgeous pashmina for trade, and I jumped at it - especially since someone who wanted to be involved but wished to remain anonymous wanted to donate a gift card to the project, too. They didn't want the banquet tickets, but just to be part of the experience, and so they offered a $100 Keg gift card. Coupled with the pashmina this made quite an enticing trade, I thought, as where better to wear the pashmina but to The Keg? I ran it by the Junior Bloggers, they quickly agreed, and we accepted the trade.


We now have in our possession one lovely ivory pashmina, soft as velvet, and one Keg gift card - but not for long! We have already agreed to our next trade, one we are VERY excited about and that we will share once we have a few pictures to share, too. I know this next trade is one everyone will find appealing, and I can't wait to share it with all of you. Keep tuned for more later this week, Fort Mac, because One Green Paperclip in Fort McMurray isn't done - we've only just begun :)
