i promise i will post images tonight. the goodies are almost gone (lol, well the edible ones) my fiance loved the choxie bar, lol, i got 1 bite, he took the rest, but he did say he prefers Canadian kit Kat bars. lol, i didn't taste a difference, but he considers himself a bit of a chocolate connoisseur and informed me there really was a difference lol.

There's a difference? I must know what the difference is...The choxie bars are really good! I know, almost all of my stuff is gone. I keep a secret stash so my sweetie won't eat it all.

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Wow! Everyone's package looks so neat!
My package arrived a few days ago and I adore everything! I have to post pictures tonight. I've been eating so much chocolate lately that I'm probably going to be 600 lbs soon lol I have all the pictures taken already, just need to sit down and upload. But anyway, wow, everyone did such a great job this round =)

Everybody's loot looks so good!!  Everytime I come look at this gallery I have to go find me some chocolate Cheesy

Today I received from ecstasia!!  Picture heavy and very lengthy post coming up!  Id like to apologize in advance for the amount of glares that occur in the following pictures.  Chocolate does not last very long at my house so I went and got my camera and was taking pictures as I was opening.  Because of this I didnt take as much care as I usually do in the quality of them cause I was just too excited to start eating chocolate!!

ecstasia put the cutest piece of lined paper on the front of the box (I must know where you got this).  Ive blacked out my address so you all could oooo and ahhh over its adorableness Cheesy


And she wrote me a note on some also very cute stationary.  It was enclosed in a matching envelope (so heres the envelope, the pages are along the same theme).



The envelope was closed with one of the most adorable stickers I have ever seen, which is saying a lot because I am a sticker fiend!  I had a VERY hard time tearing it so I could open the envelope.  It was along the same theme as the above lined paper.

So what was in the package??  Ill show you!!
Inedibles:

(Starting from the top going clockwise) there is some chocolate-lavender bath mix, roll on chocolate perfume which is actually more of a yellow color, and note cards w/recipes and a list of chocolate themed books.  If theres interest (and if ecstasia doesnt mind) I can post them.

Edibles:








(Starting from the top pic) Milk chocolate eggs (which I had to hide from daddy), a chocolate crme egg, and a peanut butter egg.  A Russell Stover mixed chocolates box closed then open.  A package of dark-chocolate-mega-sized-star-wars-m&ms, plain m&ms, 2 Dark chocolate raspberry Godiva bars (this is one of my favorite chocolate bars!!  I am definitely not sharing these Wink), and a Double chocolate hersheys bar.

And now for a group shot!


Thank you so much ecstasia!!  I want you all to know that ecstasia probably had a harder time then most because she was trying to find chocolate I could have (Im gluten intolerant) and she did a great job!!

I recieved from qbmaya today! She sent me lots of yummy chocolate, you can pretty much see what everything is in the picture so I'll only explain what you can't see  Smiley the Symphony bar has almonds and toffee mmm, there are chocolate Necco wafers and there's a piece of chocolate mint fudge (my favorite kind of fudge) on top of the Riesen bag. Sorry, I know my bare mattress looks wicked ghetto but I'm getting ready to move on monday Smiley



and here's the best part, she knit me an AWESOME chocolate brown bag with a leaf on front, I LOVE IT!! I'm really excited because I want to knit but haven't learned yet so I feel so special having something handmade for me Smiley and it's a perfect size for me to carry my crochet projects around in.



Here's the inside so you can see the zippered pocket



qbmaya, This bag is beautiful, thank you so much!

Since ecstasia hasn't had a chance to post pictures of what I sent her (and because I have nothing better to do) I thought I'd post some pictures!

Here's the edibles - (from top going in a somewhat slanted upwards direction) Symphony Bar w/almonds and toffee, milk chocolate bar (don't remember what brand and I can't quite make it out), bag of Riesen, chocolate cookie mix in a jar, (bottom row) chocolate covered caramel sucker, small box of truffles (there's four in the box; they're from my favorite chocolate shop), and a double-dipped mint easter egg (or giant truffle if you don't celebrate easter Wink)


Here's a close up of the chocolate cookie mix in a jar - the red thing tied to it is a mini envelope which contains the instructions of how to turn them from mix to cookie.


Inedibles - white/milk chocolate colored wallet, Lots of recipes for various chocolate themed goodies, and a "chocolate" bracelet


And here's a pic of the inside of the wallet - I used a tutorial I found somewhere in the internet (I don't think it was on craftster but I might've been led to it from craftster, I'll see if I can find it again).
