One red paperclip The paperclip that Kyle MacDonald traded for a house. The website One red paperclip was created by Canadian blogger Kyle MacDonald, who bartered his way from a single red paperclip to a house in a series of fourteen online trades over the course of a year.[1] MacDonald was inspired by the childhood game Bigger, Better, and the site received a considerable amount of notice for tracking the transactions. "A lot of people have been asking how I've stirred up so much publicity around the project, and my simple answer is: 'I have no idea'", he told the BBC.[2] Trading timeline[edit] MacDonald made his first trade, a red paper clip for a fish-shaped pen, on July 14, 2005.

Extraordinary Dear blank, please blank. Blimpus, An Inflatable Character Canvas by blimpus As designers we pretty much want to put graphics on EVERYTHING. We've done t-shirts, posters, skateboards, and anything flat and easy to print on. But now we want to explore beyond flatland and into the round, bulbous world of inflatable characters as custom, collectible art. What we've created is a blank, inflatable canvas with a big silly head to paint on and feet to stand on. They're a bit over two feet tall, with stubby legs and they're made of an ink-receptive PVC vinyl. We've refined the shape to it's final form through two rounds of prototypes. Option 1: Blank White DIY Blimpus This is our entry-level Blimpus. Option 2: Solid Color Blimpus with Sticker Kit A cyan, magenta or yellow solid color vinyl character and a vinyl sticker kit which includes facial features and whatnot to get you going. Option 3: Designer Edition Character Blimpus A fully printed character entirely designed by us and printed by our vendor in CA via digital transfer. We've added a reward!
