Whimsy Jar MINUS THE JAR! International friendly
Swap Coordinator:exousia (contact)
Swap categories: Random Items  Whimsey Jars 
Number of people in swap:30
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Last day to signup/drop:October 17, 2009
Date items must be sent by:October 31, 2009
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap you will send your partner a JAR of WHIMSEY except with no jar! At home stuff a jar full of random objects, beads, charms, coins, tea bags, pens, dollar store stuff, stickers, fibres, ribbons, candies, bobbles, odds and ends. You can even peak at your partners profile to see what kinds of things they might like in their jars! SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR PROFILE FILLED OUT WELL!

THEN take everything out of the jar and put it into zip lock bags so that your parcel can be FLAT. This will save on international shipping and leave this swap open to people all around the world. Plus no glass jar to break in the mail!

The size of jar that you must fill at home is 20oz or a 500ml jar. (Remember, don't send the jar just use it as a measure)

You must have ALL 5's. And at least 10 ratings. I will remove you from the swap if you have less than all 5's. Please ask if there are any questions.

Then if you want to you can put it all back in your own jar when you receive it!

I don't have ten ratings yet, but I am pretty sure I will by the date of sign up as I am signed up for quite a few swaps (and I fully intend on sending all of them!). Please don't remove me yet! :)

Great idea! I was always afraid that the jar would break in a Whimsey intr'l swap!

I just joined and really really really REALLY would love to do this one. If I promise to send it, can I please do it? If not, will you do another one some time?

exousia 09/29/2009 #

No problem Sherissa! Hi Amberrose. If this one works out well I will do them over and over again!

What size jar is the whimsy jar? I haven't done a whimsy jar swap yet.

Magickspirit51 09/30/2009 #

Never mind I see the anwser.

I should have 10 ratings by the swap deadline, so please, please don't remove me. This swap looks like so much fun, really looking forward to it!!! :D

I really really really wanna join but I don't think I'll meet the 10 ratings requirement by the sign-up deadline though I have completed 6 swaps already given that am in the Philippines the travel time takes 13 to 15 days according to the post office lady. Huhuhuhu. Please please host another one in the month or so .... happy swapping guys!

exousia 10/ 4/2009 #

Will definitly do this one again if it works out <3

lovestosew 10/ 5/2009 #

This will be fun. I love little trinkets and treasures!!!! I'm in.

Magickspirit51 10/ 5/2009 #

Believe it or not, I haven't found a 20 0z jar yet.

exousia 10/ 6/2009 #

Really? Is that an odd jar size? Should we change it? Another thing you could do is use a measuring cup and just fill it up to 20oz.

CroLaneyL 10/10/2009 #

you can alway fill a smaller jar up to reach 20oz, even if you need to fill a smaller one up. That's what I'll be doing. I've gotcha on my watch list =)

shoot.. This looked really awesome.. But theres not enough time between the getting partners and having to ship for me! If you do this swap again, can we get a weekend in there to shop?

exousia 10/13/2009 #

Sure, I can push it back if you like a little! Will do that!

CrowsFox 10/14/2009 #

yay joined!! Thanks for the date push so I can get to the store!!

also sidenote: Im USA, but for our international swappers, remember some countries are strick baout what you can send, for example Australia doesnt allow tea to be mailed!! Remember to check that stuff out and keep it in mind when shopping!!

exousia 10/17/2009 #

Australia does allow tea bags, they just have to be sealed.

CrowsFox 10/19/2009 #

hmm.. my bad... My post office said no tea, and Ive had partners from Aussie say not to send bc customs rips teh package apart...

yinlim 10/28/2009 #
