Whimsies can be anything really as long as they're relatively small  Cheesy Abandoned game pieces, scrabble tiles, beads, marbles, trinkets and treasure it all is!

I just sent in my app. I am super excited to get partners. I have a decent stash already gathered, just waiting to learn about my partner's likes so I can customize.

Check your junk drawer, yard sales in the old toys and broken jewelry section. Check the birthday sections for small toys, try plastic charms searches on eBay, jewelry sections, doll house sections in craft shops. Office supplies can be whimsical....sewing supplies are my personal favorite. Buttons, beads that kind of thing for filler. Once you start looking for tiny things they start popping up everywhere.

Sending in my info NOW !!   Grin

Oh! I've always wanted to get in on one of these! I'm slowly getting into altered art and am in desperate need of some whimsies to do more shrines and stuff! I have some great little bits and bobs I'm willing to share! Off to fill out the info. (Oh and don't anyone tell my hubby I'm doing this swap!  Cheesy I'm supposed to be just working on the swaps I have right now and then taking a break!)
