Details of swap:

Mmm, more cookies!  Tongue If you loved the Holidays Cookie swap, didn't join because of whatever, and/or love cookies this is the swap for you! Who doesn't love getting cookies, especially around Valentine's Day (or Singles Awareness Day. Smiley) Once again, you'll be receiving yummy cookies in the mail, but this one is a little different.

This time we're sending (as a minimum) two batches of cookies. One should be made especially for your swap partner's tastes; the other geared toward his/her significant other's tastes. If you're single, you get two batches all to yourself. (Or your mother, father, siblings, relatives, BFF, etc. if you want to share) Also, there will be one small (or medium if you choose) crafted item, and one small bought item. (Or you can have two crafted items, but at least one must be crafted. C'mon now, this is Craftster.) AND you must include the recipes.

So, two batches of cookies, their corresponding recipes and two small items. Simple, right? Of course.

Batches are a minimum of 12. Feel free to send more batches and more items, but make sure to discuss it with your partner so all is equal and nice.


YOU MUST SEND PRIORITY
. Cookies don't last for weeks; I want everyone to be able to eat and enjoy their cookies. If you can't send priority for whatever reason please wait until the next round.

People with severe allergies/stipulations against getting cookies from a stranger are also welcome to join. You will be swapping just recipes and the items. The recipes must still be geared towards the partner and SOs tastes. Please let me know ahead of time so I can match you up accordingly.

YOU MUST POST PICTURES IN THE GALLERY. Let us see your yummies. If your camera has died/lost/fallen into water/the cat ate it, please make plans with your partner. 

A database of cookie recipes//information on sending can be found on my blog here: http://mochaxlight.blogspot.com/2009/01/cookie-website-database.html (If you have any sites to add, let me know!)

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

**Please put VDAY COOKIE SWAP in the subject line. Thanks!**

LSATS be damned! JK. You need to eat something while you study, right?  Wink

Thanks epic! I figured this would be nice, especially since my boyfriend ate half of mine. Gr.

This sounds fun. I'm going to see how much progress is made on cleaning the kitchen this week before signing up though. I got lots of baking things for Christmas. I also have a set of heart cookie cutters.  Grin

Okay, I've talked myself into it, but I have to talk to the BF to see what all he hates in cookies (he's so picky Roll Eyes )

Again - I will join if there are any vegans or people that know how to bake vegan! When I say 'know how' - actually has baked vegan and know what vegan is...I don't want to sound like an anal vegan but well, um I am.

I'll probably join again too if there is another Canadian.  The last round was so much fun, my favourite swap so far!
