Details of swap: Chocoholics anonymous?? No Way!... Chocolate lovers around the world unite! this is a swap celebrating the sweetest confection on earth - chocolate.

We will be sending one medium crafted item, and two small crafted items, and, of course, chocolate. I encourage everyone to be open for international shipping! This is a great way to try new things from other countries. I also encourage people to send locally made sweets if they can.* There's plenty of stuff to send... maybe a chocolate candy-making kit, a t-shirt or mug emblazoned with your professed love of chocolate, recipe cards, jewelry, chocolate themed or colored crocheted, knitted or sewn items, magnets... anything!

check the previous gallery for ideas!

* please note... international shipping is NOT required for this swap, simply recommended.

If you want to participate, this is the information to send to the organizer - remember to put Chocoholics Unanimous Round 2! in the message line:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Chocoholics Unanimous Round 2!
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

What kinds of chocolate do you like?

Favorite brands?

Any chocolates you don't like?

What crafted items would you like to receive?

Is there a craft that you would like to receive a kit for?

Is there something that you would NOT like to receive?

What crafted items would you be able to make for your partner?

Are you allergic or have aversions to anything?

Do you smoke or have any common allergens in your house? (pets, etc)

Tell your partner something about yourself so that they can craft to your tastes:

Do you have a wists/ blogger/ ect. List the URL here:

Is there anything else you want your partner or the organizer to know?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE. Remember to put Chocoholics Unanimous Round 2! in the message line.


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

Communication with organizer and partner is vital for a good swap experience!
DC # is required for USA mailed items, and a Customs # for international items sent from the USA to other countries (it will be on your customs sheet). Packages originating in other countries should also have a Customs # unless sent to another person in the same country.

for your reference:

I want to mention that there are two closely related swaps that will probably be starting in the next couple of weeks started so you know which you are most interested in participating in if you can only get into one swap.
One is the Sweet Treat Swap which danni.yelly is posted, the URL is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=219116.0
Sign-up date range: Weds 9th Jan Fri 18th Jan
Date to send item by: Sat 9th Feb


the other is the I <3 Coffee/Tea/Cocoa Swap Round 5 that hardyswanton01 is started on January 1st. that URL is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216713.0
Sign-up date range: 01/01/08---01/12/08
Date to send item by: 02/14/08


Threads are up in the Craft Swaps section on both of those if you want to check them out, and I will add a link to them here when they are posted as up and running in the swap section! links added

Personally - I want to do all three, LOL!

If you enter more than one of these three swaps and want the same partner, let the other organizer(s) know when you send in your entry. You will still have to craft the equivalent of the same amount of items, but will be able to send it all in one package if you prefer. This may be a good choice for someone with an international partner.
If you want to be sure to NOT have the same partner in any of the three swaps, make sure to the other organizer(s) know that too!


I hope this is a great swap experience for everyone!

hee hee I've got the perfect fabric for this one!  I'll send in my info later.  Altho international shipping is a bitch, it is tempting to go for it and get some proper british or french chocolates.

The coffee/tea/cocoa swap will be starting around jan 1, btw!  it'll be a great time, and i've got great fabric for that one, too.

(the trick is that when you're not in a themed swap, you'll find fabric for it so you buy it and then wait til it comes up again, or just host it yourself)

I will be looking forward to adding you to the list!

my first international swap was great! and you would be surprised what you can find in USA too!

The coffee/tea/cocoa swap will be starting around jan 1, btw!  it'll be a great time, and i've got great fabric for that one, too.

I updated the first post with that info!

(the trick is that when you're not in a themed swap, you'll find fabric for it so you buy it and then wait til it comes up again, or just host it yourself)

so that is how you always have great themed fabric! LOL!
