Recently, my 2nd-grader was learning about bartering at school.  I wondered if people still bartered.  After all, it's a great idea.  A couple of weeks later I took my boys to get their pictures taken by Jennifer @ Moments and Memories.  She really loved the ties I made for my boys to wear during their photo session.
my handsome little guys
 She asked if I would make her some ties in exchange for some prints of my boys.  Umm, yes!!!  So I made these ties...
Tutorial by Very Homemade, found here.

I just LOVE all those dots!
 And I got some fabulous pics of my boys in return.  Here are a few of my favorites.

A big thanks to Jennifer!  I couldn't be happier with the shots you captured of my little guys!

Do you barter?
