Ecstasia is the best! She sent me loads of tasy chocolate, plus a cookbook of chocolate recipes, PLUS two chocolate-scented soaps that she made herself!

The group:

That's a "before" picture. The "after" picture, if there were one, would feature me and my roommate lying on the floor, our grins half-hidden by the chocolate smeared on our faces.

Close-up of the amazing soap. I wish scents could be transmitted over the Internet because these soaps smell delicious!


Thank you so much, ecstasia! I hope you like what I sent you!

Whiskey pm'd me, she has been sick, so can't go chocolate crazy.  I'll post my pics.
First, the actual chocolate. I made these, just Hershey's kisses on pretzels, stick in a 350 oven for about 3 min, then smoosh a m&m in it, simple but I love the salt and sweet together.

This pic is kinda dark, but in the box is 3 gourmet chocolates, different flavors, in front of box is ch.ch. chip cookies from the local pizza place, which my neighbors happen to own, in front of them is raspberry fudge made in Kansas.  To the left is a bag of ch. covered sunflower seeds, I had never tried them till now myself, there isn't enough ch. on them, but are still good.  Then 2 bags of my pretzel kisses. To the right is a big pretzel stick covered in ch. with some sunflower seeds, they called it a Kansas log...then another 2 bags of pretzel kisses.


These little guys are supposed to look like dark and milk chocolate pieces...by the time I was done with them I couldn't tell what they looked like.  They are magnets.

When I saw the ch. swap on the ideas board I knew I had to join and I knew this cross stitch pattern had been waiting in my stash for just this moment.

I finally settled on appliqueing it onto a tote bag.

Then I just could not leave the back blank, so....

Sorry that pic is dark, but did you see the awesome fabric I found?  It has all different kinds of ch. pieces. I absolutely love this fabric.  The lining is done in it too.  I also managed to make a zippered pocket on the inside, makes me think I might be able to do a purse.

And then, just because I hadn't used enough of the fabric I made a lined zippered pouch out of it!

Sorry this is so pic heavy, I just had to show off!
Whiskey says she absolutely adores the tote, and I have to admit, so do I!
Thanks for organizing classycrafter, I had loads of fun.

here are the things I sent berol-frog:

a hand sewn frog tote(my sewing machine died), a crocheted frog, ghirardelli chocolate squares and chocolate almond bar and a selection of chocolates from a local place.

here is what she sent me

the kit kat didn't make it through last night.  I'm saving the galaxy bar until I'm totally over the flu.  She also made a cute shrinky chocolate badge that was in the knitted chocolate stash bag.
Thanks again berol-frog.

Thanks for organizing classycrafter!  Berol-frog was a great swap partner.

I love that x-stitch faren! The pattern wouldn't happen to be shareable I suppose? Roll Eyes

No, it isn't, but here is the info
Great Big Graphs is the publishing co. which I think is a division of True Colors International
Designed by Andrew Stewart
Published in 1992, I think I bought it from Annie's Attic     http://www.anniesattic.com/cross-stitch/list.html
I thought I would look it up for you, but I haven't found it yet.  I only bought it a few years ago, you think it would be around someplace.  I would mail it to you, but I think I will use it again, and there might be other people who want it too.   The address of the co. is: 
Great Big Graphs
4275 Steve Reynolds Blvd.
Suite D
Norcross, GA
30093
Hope this helps!  Oh, the price was only $1.95, and it was a quick chart to do. Thanks for the compliment, Melladh.  TheRehn, yeah, I love it to, I bought the rest of the bolt, unfortunately, they only had 1 1/2 yards left!

You know, I think that soap is my favorite. I love making that soap and it feels so good too! I'm so glad that you liked my swap =)

I received my swap from you! I can't post pics since I'm at work but I love what you sent and please don't feel bad at all! I'm more than happy with it all =) I actually received it Monday after work (which was a wonderful surprise!) but I spent my weekend (Tues and Weds) in a Sims 2 induced coma lol.

Yamwam sent me loads of Hershey's milk chocolate, a truffle from another country (I'm doing this off the top of my head, can't recall if it was Belguim or Brazil. Probably Belguim), two recipes that I cannot wait to try, and some absolutely adorable chocolate inspired magnets which I love! And she made this really neat purple and gold origami chocolate box to put the candies in =) There was also another bar of chocolate but I can't recall what it is at this time. Sorry! But I'll be posting pics tonight and then pigging out on the chocolate lol

Here's the picture as promised!



I forgot to mention the mini calendar which is going back to work with me tomorrow. It's a daily calendar and each day is a new fact or quote about chocolate! Yumm! 365 days of chocolate!

Thank you again =)
