Autumnlayne had the idea and I offered to organize it.

Swap name: Chocolate Themed Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: carina
Sign-up date range: July 23, 2005 August 06, 2005
Date to send item by: August 30, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Most definitely.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

The swap theme is chocolate, but the catch is you cannot include actual chocolate

 Like Autumnlayne sugested, you could make:
- Chocolate colored sewn/knitted items, jewelry etc., or even recon stuff made with chocolate candy wrappers
-Anything chocolate scented or flavored (non perishable)
-Favorite chocolate recipes

Here you have some links of ideas I saw in crafster:
Chocolate soap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29180.0
Chocolate lip gloss: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38661.0

You should make one big thing and other 2 small/medium things. But it's up to you and your partner, remember that you should send something that you'd like to receive.

If this is your first swap, remember that you must complete this one in order to join more.

If you're not sure you can do it, don't sign up. No one likes flakers
.

A Delivery Confirmation number is required when you ship within your country. If you can't get a DC#, save the receipt.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Chocolate Themed Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?:

What would you like to receive?
What are you thinking of making (in general)?
What kind of chocolate do you like in particular? ( Such as cake, ice cream, or a specific type of candy)
Sizes (so you don't ruin a surprise by asking your partner):
Wrist-
Shirt-
Shoe-
Ears pierced?:
Anything that you partner should know?
Do you have a way to post pictures?
Do you give permission to your partner to take pictures of what you send?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


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

IF YOU HAVE NEVER PARTICIPATED IN A SWAP, PLEASE READ THE GUIDELINES BEFORE SIGNING UP!

I just PMed carina my sign-up info.  I can't wait to get started on this one... I LOVE CHOCOLATE!   Tongue

carina - Should a question be added to the questionnaire about what kind of chocolate we like in particular?  Such as cake, ice cream, or a specific type of candy (in case we make something with candy wrappers).  Or should we just ask or partner this kind of thing once we get matched up?

Well, I guess we'll be 8 (or 7 if one of the participants don't get positive feedback on her first swap, I have to know first if her partner received)...

Few, but good Smiley That's a saying in Portugal.

Got my stuff - OMG HHH you outdid yourself - everything is so wonderful
Thankyou so much!

Blondie is modeling my wonderful soft cushy scarf that HHH made me - last time Blondie will ever see this scarf - it's mine alll mine <G> 
 

The magnets in their box with two wonderful lip glosses 
 

Some of the detail doesn't show on this pic - but they are so neat - just like real chocolates! 
 

HHH - you really outdid yourself with this purse - it's so cute - can't see the detail as well on this pic - she did some neat ribbon work on the flap. Really nice. I wanted to post a pic of the inside but I don't have enough room on my pic page  Cry
It's very nice - blue with pockets.

glad you liked everything. I made a purse and scarf for me too! Hand stitching on all that ribbon took forever!

My pups are facinated with the scarf fabric too. I wish I had known ou had a pup and I would have mad one for em' too. My pair have their own now too. They snuggle up their faces in it and nap.

How cute I can see why they would like them - Blondie liked it but she's not getting it back <G> but my other little dog - Goose (short for silly Goose) would chew on it I think and that would be bad.

I got my package from CraftyZary today, and I think she really overdone it.. I got so much stuff!!!! Everything is so clever and very well crafted, she will post pictures, because my camera is unavaiable today Sad

I'm getting nervous about her stuff... I hope I don't disapoint her!
