DETAILS OF SWAP:
This is a swap where you will fill a container (glass, plastic, wood, cardboard/paper, metal, fabric, whatever your heart desires Cheesy) with little trinkets, bits, and baubles you think your partner will love.  The more creative the better!
Requirements are as follows:

1. A decorated container filled with approximately 2 cups / 1 pint (by volume) of whimsies.
2. A minimum of 1 small crafted whimsy (if you're feeling extra crafty and wish to make and send more crafted whimsies, that's okay too!!).
3. The majority of items in the container should be Halloween themed or be of Halloween colors (black/orange/red/white/purple/green).  
    It's okay to include some non-Halloween items you think your partner would like, but let's try to send a bunch of Halloween goodies Smiley
Note: Extras (i.e. things outside the container) are optional - discuss with your partner.

LOL!  Pumpkin season is the best! 
I've been catching up on errands today and I found a couple of tiny Halloween goodies that may or may not find their way into a new home...just sayin' Wink

This swap sounds amazing!!!

Whatcha waiting for?  You know you can't resist adding some tiny Halloween awesomeness to your stash Wink

Questionnaire sent! Sounds like fun! Cheesy

I got you covered Cheesy



Is anyone else already trying to figure out what to use as a container for this swap? 
Oh, and I might have to dig through my craft stash tomorrow to see what I can set aside to include the container Cheesy

I already found one thing that might work as a container, but I was also thinking about sewing one! I am curious if anyone knows if small flat rate boxes would hold two cups of goodies or if they are too small?

I also plan on digging through my craft stash this weekend! Cheesy

I'm thinking about this one...  I do so love whimsies!

A small flat rate box is 5 3/8 x 8 5/8 x 1 5/8, which is 75.33 cubic inches.  That's almost 5 1/4 standard (US) cups.  Smiley
