Details of swap: If you're anything like me, you have a little stash of whimsies and would welcome any excuse to accumulate a few more! This swap is an ideal opportunity (excuse to buy, send on and receive more whimsies!)

For this swap, you will stuff a clear plastic Jar full with whimsies! (a glass Jar, cardboard tube or tin can also be used, I will do my best to match up partners like for like, but it will be down to partners to agree finer details.
Think pretty, think cute, think weird, think wonderful, think fun!! Buttons, beads, baubles, pretty stamps, miniature toys, charms, bits of old costume jewellery, stamps, keys, ribbon, marbles pretty much anything you can get in there!!

You may only send what fits inside the jar, so this will be a fun, easy swap. Please send nice things that you would be happy to receive!

If you're sending within the States, dc's will be required. If sending within another country please make sure you get a proof of posting.
Filled Jars are not expected to have a theme or be decorated but if thats what youd like to do and or receive please feel free to talk to your partner and see if they have any ideas in mind. Otherwise, just make it pretty with what you have.   

One more thing: please post in this thread if you are going to participate!!

Heres the original conversation about this swap: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235338.0

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

A few other things to follow:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put Jar of Whimsies in the title of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it!

3.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you
      MUST inform me and your partner.

4.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

            If you send on time and follow the guidelines of only one item, I will give you a "Great Swapper"
            If you send late (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
            If you send late but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination, I will give
               you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
            If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

Woo! I'm in! This should be a fun, instant gratification swap. Thanks, RubyTuesday, for organizing!

Haha--totally off topic, but I just noticed the bunny with the shades:  Cool (Is there usually a smiley face with sunglasses?)

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
