So what I've enjoyed most about swap bot is all the fun new things I've been learning. I've wanted to try a whimsey jar, but of recently the ones that are showing up are themed and I've felt somewhat intimidated. So here I present a profile dependent whimsy jar for those who are new or familiar alike.

If you have done them before, welcome, now would be a good time to try something new to experiment with your jars! If you are new like me, no worries as there really is no wrong way as long as some effort goes into it. I'm hoping to have an active comments board to allow us all to bounce off ideas and advice with one another.

I would prefer to not put a money limit on it as it's up to you with what your comfortable spending, I will say that It should be full and have thought behind it so as everyone has a great jar at the end of it.

Make sure you have a well filled out profile as nothing is harder to come up with a theme or items when you have no information on your partner!!! 4.8 or higher works for signing up but I will look as people join to ensure that we have no flakers. I'm also going to make this slightly longer for complete and sign up dates to ensure everyone has time to collect, make and send as well as ask questions or comment here.

This is meant as a relaxed enjoyable swap, so have fun with it. Feel free to message me with questions or comment below!

Happy swapping!

What size jar??

Chinchigirl 09/13/2011 #

Oh! Thanks Miabiff, I was thinking a 12 to 16 oz jar.

what is a whimsy jar and how big? I am fairly new

I to would like to know what a whimsy jar is ?? I'm thinking it is a jar that we would decorate and then fill with items that would be useful to our partner.please let me know if this is correct.

Chinchigirl 09/13/2011 #

Exactly that Catjwampler! Our own swap bot glossary says: A small decorated jar filled with fun, random objects. Often decorated around a specific them and filled with items that match that theme.

In this case the theme is vague as we're just looking for something that goes with your partners profile or preference.

It's always fun to get packages, why not try a whimsy jar?

I have joined, I am new but have done swaps on other sites without being late or forgetting. I like the whimsy jars so much fun to put together. The profile whimsy is a nice idea.

I was checking out everyone's profile, I think it would be really helpful if everyone tried adding more "likes/interests."
