I want to mention that there is one closely related swap that has already finished sign ups. It is the Chocoholics Unanimous Swap which is being run by RondaS. Send outs for this swap are Feb 1st. This way if anyone is in both swaps, there is a staggered send off date of one week.

Threads are up in the New Swap Ideas section on both of those if you want to check them out, and here is the link to the swap below.
Chocoholics Unanimous Thread:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=215366.0

If you enter more than one of these swaps and want the same partner, let me and the other organizer know when you send in your entry. You will still have to craft the equivalent of the same amount of items, but will be able to send it all in one package if you prefer. This may be a good choice for someone with an international partner.
If you want to be sure to NOT have the same partner in any of the swaps, make sure to let me and the other organizer(s) know that too!

The size thing is hard for me to judge.  So I'll just say this much for my progress. 
Thing 1 - 100% done
Thing 2 - 50% done
Other things - still in thought process :-) 

Hopefully that helps you ,iloveoctopus, figure out what I made! :-)

hahaha i'm going to guess you made...umm...i don't know. ^_^ i know what i'm making, things are started, nothing's finished, i need to go shopping! it would seem that my sister and her friend raided some supplies of mine the other day and now i'm not sure what i have and don't have that i need. that and my son likes to play with all my stuff, so it very well could be somewhere around my house. ^_^ but never fear, everything will be done and sent on time!

well - whatever it was I am really glad it turned out well, as that means maybe what you craft for me will also be fly, LOL!

I ended up with my hubby at the hospital all day and night yesterday and he had emergency surgery late Sunday night for an infection in his hip - scary stuff and they don't know if he will have to have another surgery or not.

However, since I was up all night and couldn't sleep I now have a medium project 100% done that goes into small project 0% done with the other medium project 30% done and the other small project 0% done....

and since he will be in the hospital for the next 3 to 4 days I should be getting the other medium close to done too. It is the stuff that can't go with me that will take a while to get done!

I still hope I get to take a nap, but am going to be back .

I finished my med item last night and I LOVE it.  I am so sad though that some of the transfer ink got onto another part of it, but I am going to try like hell to get it out so I can send it out.  I also have a few items done but they seem like extra small items to me so I am adding in a few little extra small things.  I am so excited.  I should be ready to send out before the week is over :D

I seriously had to stop myself from committing to anymore crafts for this swap! I think I have 5 projects going on to send my partner and I went to the craft store the other day and found at least two more crafts that I wanted to start. Had to slap my hand and say "No!"

Everything is almost finished can't wait to send and check out the gallery for all of the goodies you all have crafted.

fill in the blank game for my partner - I will fill in one blank every day starting tomorrow and hope you get your package before the sentence is filled in or you guess the rest of it! 

I have both mediums finished and have to do one small and finishing touches on the other small - then photo and package and send! Sounds like more than it is...

Gee, I just LOVE this swap. I'm coming up with different things every time. Thinking: i could do this or i could do that! It's just a really inspiring theme  ;D, but not for my mom, she sees "strange" things on her shopping list ;)

edit:  :o i looked up what my package would cost if i would sent it now. Guess what?? €11,25 :o I guess that danni.yelly gets two packages ;)

Posting! I haven't had time all week to make anything. Teachers love loading me with homework when I have things I'd rather do. This weekend, I'm crafting with no interuptions! I think I'll be ready to send out sometime in the beginning of next week. I have my medium set item done with the exception of a few small details. I also have my two small things finished but might make some other things as they are really small. ;D

Here's an update from my crafting and from the UK....

I'm happy to be able to check in on the swap board here (Finally got a connection out here with the sheep!)  I'm so excited to see all the swap goodies!


Sounds like my partner and I are two crafting addicts  :)
I got on a roll thinking of a few things to make and then started sketching out a whole set to go along with them.

Looking forward to getting back to the warm weather.  I'll have to thaw out!

i've finally got the stuff i need to start creating, there are things all over the house. which means i should be done soon and that my mom is going to yell at me soon for joining another swap and leaving everything all over the place. and also that she will tell me how neat that is and my sister will probably mope and say "you never make ME anything" and then i will have to because she is pregnant and gets really really really insanely more emotional. ^_^ things are going smoothly

I am all done!  I wrapped it all up and forgot to get pics.  Doh!  I unwrapped everything except one item which is more of just a last second throw in item because I had it wrapped all nicely and didn't want to hurt that.  I should be hitting the PO tomorrow, MOnday at the latest and will be sure to send a DCN :D

It is an extension and will not be considered a late send! Quite a lot of people (including me!) are not going to be finished on time so i thought it would be good to give an extra week! This way it will be after the valentines rush too! And this way you won't have to rush it.
But PM me if you will be sending later than the extension date.
hope that makes more sense now! :D

well - I didn't get pictures of everything - I did a group shot and a couple of things got individual photos - so I hope my partner will post more than I took. I guess I took just enough to appease the camera gods that will make it impossible to get pics on the other end if I DON'T take any at all...

more fill in the blank:

One of my mediums is a set of tasty   sweet  _____ that all go together by color and ______ and theme and ____ - and I was so excited that my DD correctly recognized and identified that it was done immediately when she looked at it and shrilled "it's a ____ and looks good  enough to eat " with great enthusiasm - "can I have it?"

Yay!!!  I am so glad that you like everything.  I was a little nervous that you would be like "uh...why did she send me this?"   :D  I have pictures of everything but the little extras that came with the bow around them if you want me to post.

One of my mediums is a set of tasty   sweet  _____ that all go together by color and construction and theme and ____ - and I was so excited that my DD correctly recognized and identified that it was done immediately when she looked at it and shrilled "it's a ____ and looks good  enough to eat " with great enthusiasm - "can I have it?" I told her not on your life!

stupid post office - I am going to end up filling in all the blanks before you get your box if they don't hurry it up!

I have everything lined up and ready to be photographed and then packaged and sent for tomorrow.  I have had such a blast crafting for this swap, I'm almost sad to see them go.
 :'(

But......I'll have pictures and my wonderful swap partner will get all of these new goodies to enjoy!  AND I'll have crafting space to start all over again (for the next round?)

Why do I keep needing to watch some old school Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory?
This swap keeps getting that movie running through my head! ;D

One of my mediums is a set of tasty   sweet  treats that all go together by color and construction and theme and yarn - and I was so excited that my DD correctly recognized and identified that it was done immediately when she looked at it and shrilled "it's a pink snowball! and looks good  enough to eat " with great enthusiasm - "can I have it?" I told her not on your life!

I give up on the post office! USPS tracker says the package was delivered, so maybe my partner is waiting for the fill in the blanks to be done - so I finished it!

did it clear up the identity of one of the things in the package?

I got my package from sinisterbutterfli today in the mail!

I will have to take pix tomorrow with the help of daylight! But meanwhile, I wanted to say I got my package! I think that she must own shares in the scotch tape industry because she sure used a lot of tape on it, and once I got the outer layer open - what did I find? more tape on the inner layers! LOL!  ;D

I just hope the cookies she sent me make it to photo time tomorrow - they smell heavenly (once I got through more tape  ;) ) and look so cute!

The only thing that could have made it better was rocks - I got no rocks...  :'(

LOL!

Look for pix in the gallery tomorrow!

Ronda
Blessings!

The rocks thing sounds so Charlie Brown  :D Heh, sadly I have no way to get rocks, or I would have send you some in various fun colors. Heck, I could just send the ones that are in my head  :P

If you sent me the rocks in your head than what would keep the marbles company?

Truly, I really do love rocks! Tumbled stones are my passion, but I like the rocks you find in the ground or especially in a creek bed too!  ;D

My grandma had a rock garden that my grandpa (who was a truck driver) brought her a new rock home every trip. She had rocks from every state except Hawaii, and parts of Canada and Mexico. Hers were big though (and I did snitch the more interesting ones when my mom tore the garden down to dig out a dead tree). For the most part my rocks are little ones that fit in a dish or box or whatever on my shelves...

You will know for next time you are my partner!  ;D

My friend (kron) got to eat a few of the truffles I made for the swap [along with all the other things I make haha] and wants me to start selling them on etsy. I didn't know people sold baked goods on etsy till she had me look today.
