New Sponsor Spotlight: Whoopdwhoop

Chances are good that if you’re reading this blog (and you’re not related to me) you like to make crap. Do you ever go crazy and make like 15 of the same thing and then look around and wonder what in the world you’re going to do with all those fabric flowers/appliqued onesies/bows/necklaces? My neighbor Jami carries them around in her purse and hands them out to random strangers. Yes, really. If you’re not as crazy as Jami (and really, who is?), Crap I’ve Made’s newest sponsor could be your answer…

McKay says: I am so excited to tell you about a new website that my husband and I have created!

Our vision was to create a community where artisans (that’s you!) could share their talents, creativity and creations with others not
through money, but through swapping. We wanted a place where people could list their handiwork (photography, paper crafts, jewelry, art, sewn items, basically anything that they have handmade) and then swap them for others’ handmade items- completely eliminating the need for money.

It was this idea that sparked the life of whoopdwhoop.com. Whoopdwhoop is a unique, currency-free marketplace where individuals can both list their creative endeavors and ‘shop’ for others’ creative endeavors — all without the use of money. Points (whoops) are earned by both listing and swapping your handiwork. You can then take the whoops that you have earned and ‘shop’ within the whoopdwhoop community. It’s the perfect way to partake in some retail therapy and not feel guilty! It’s free, it’s easy, and it’s fun.

Our hope is that in this economy where things can be tough, whoopdwhoop will allow people to share their talents, creativity, and creations with others — all by simply swapping.

Here are some other items you can find at whoopdwhoop

    Sweet! I am signing up. Although I am like your friend Jami! I made these really cute babywipes case covers from old sheets with things like strawberry shortcake, scooby doo or other characters on it. When moms would comment on how cute they were hanging off my diaper bag, I would just give them one!
