One Red Guitar Pick!

If Kyle MacDonald started with one red paperclip and with the support of many fine new friends made online, traded up to a house we can do it too! And for a greater cause than a house for two.

Now what do I have to trade up? Looking around my desk I see One Red Guitar Pick, my favourite one, the only red one I own at present and the one used to help create the song I was inspired to write in honour of "the one red paperclip guy" and the town of Kipling, Saskatchewan. The Red Paperclip Festival is coming up over the August 29th-30th weekend. UPDATE: I was going to have a live acoustic version of the song posted online by then but I just sat down on this Monday August 25th night to practice the song and ended up using one line from that and some lines from another song I wrote to create a whole new song, can you guess what it's called?

I have one red guitar pick, "plectrum" if you speak Dutch, to trade with you or maybe your friend for something bigger and better that you have around or can get your hands on.

Want to help make someone's future brighter? Let's agree to meet to make a trade and help make history?

All you need is something bigger or better than a red guitar pick and the heart to trade it! Email me with the details at

Hope to meet and trade with you soon! Please see this blog post at Model To Mansion, thanks so much for your interest, care and support...

P.S. I'm going to make a loving line of trade ups until I get something worth enough cash to help cover the costs of adopting a new member into our family and mansion to come. You can see the most current Model To Mansion trade up post here. Yes you can help an orphans dreams come true and spread a little love to others along the way too!
