The last whimsey jar swap I was in, my partner sent my stuff in a Gerber baby food jar! So, this swap will be even for all.

The jar must be an 8 oz jar or larger if you'd like, but no smaller!

Fill it with neat Halloween stickers, orange/black buttons and ribbons, magnets, doodads and what is that's. Be creative and only send things you'd love to receive.

Decorate the jar cute too!

Swappers limited to 4.9 rate or better. No exceptions to this one.

I reserve the right to ban any swapper for any apparent reason.

I've never done a whimsey either! lol

I found the perfect jar and it was right in my fridge the whole time! The fruit I buy comes in little 8 oz. glass jars. I use them for storing odds and ends when I am through with them, too. If anyone is interested, I find them at Wal-Mart in the canned fruit aisle next to all the applesauce and raisins! They're less than $1 a jar here.

Ok, this will sound very newbie, but what is a Whimsy Jar? Sounds super fun!

Boupie 08/29/2009 #

Does it have to be cute Halloween or can it be gothic or scary Halloween? I would totally prefer gothic/scary personally but would love anything. Watching for now.

RyeRye 09/ 1/2009 #

any type or style you'd like.

Java, it is a har filled with the theme of the swap stuff and the jar lid is also decorated. You can probably google the word and see some examples.

Wow...I've googled some whimsy jars for inspriration on the internet and now I'm a bit nervous, but excited!

@snowflakeoneyelashes just gave me the nicest rating/comment on my "Whimsey Coffin" - I sent her a wooden coffin instead of a jar and she loved it! I was thrilled. This was a FUN, FUN, FUN swap.

[she named it-too cute!] I will post a pic', but I didn't get one of the outside.
