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. More is acceptable if both partners agree, and I never stand in the way of spoiling a partner, but the minimum requirement must be met. Please coordinate with your partner on the amount of chocolates sent, but I request that you spend at least $10 on chocolates unless you and your partner agree on more or less than that!

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!
!

* please note... international shipping is NOT required for this swap, simply recommended for the sheer joy of experiencing international treats!

If you want to participate, this is the information to send to the organizer - remember to put Chocolate Swap! in the message line:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Chocolate Swap
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?

Are you at least 16 or older?

Are you allergic or have aversions to anything?

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

Do you live somewhere hot this time of year and need your partner to take that into consideration when packaging you parcel?

Can you send early if your partner needs that to happen?

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?

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 Chocolate Swap in the message line.

Communication with organizer and partner is vital for a good swap experience! Communication will be noted on your feedback comments.

Everyone is required to either post on the thread or send thier assigned organizer a PM with a progress report every week after partners are assigned. Failure to communicate on the thread, or with your partner or the organizer can get you dropped from the swap with a negative!

DC# is required for USA mailed items, and a Customs# for international items sent between countries (it should be on your customs sheet) or a photo of a sales receipt. Packages sent to another person in the same country other than the USA also need a tracking number.

I was just looking at an old gallery of this swap the other day and thought, "Oh, I should never do this one.  I don't need any chocolate temptation."  And then this happened and well... 

I was weak.  I'm IN!   Grin

I told myself that I would not do more than 2 swaps as it is getting to the holidays, so I may join in a round two of this if there is one....especially since I live very close to Hershey, Pa Smiley yum
