I'm not in the swap, but I'm stalking this thread. Chocolate coffee soaps sounds delightful! I made some chocolate soap and it just finished curing a couple weeks ago. I think I may have to look into adding coffee. What a great morning pick me up!

Yeah!!! Over half full now....enjoying some Starbucks breakfast blend and checking out Pinterest.
Ugggg I should have asked this originally but does anyone have any allergies that may be a huge issue? Does anyone have any allergy causing issues like animals or smoking in their home?
I have a dog and I am allergic to cats but as long as the cats are not rolling in any projects I may receive I will be okay.
Have a great day!!! ;)

Has anyone roasted their own beans? Was thinking of trying it as it sounds easy enough. Not much cheaper though once shipping is tacked on......

They are called green coffee beans. There are a lot of places tha tsell them online but I have not searched enough to see of there is a local copany in my area. With shipping it is cheaper to buy them ready to use!

Two more days till partners! I made my choc coffee soap and now it is curing. I hope it is ready by the time send outs come up so I can send a bar!!!
Most of you are leaving it wide open for what you would like to get so partnering up should be easy just keeping in mind the allergy stuff.

If you have not already posted on your allergies or allergens in your home please do.
Please cover smoking, pets etc  :)

I received my package today :) I debated opening it...it just felt a bit like cheating seeing as I'm not done crafting...but the closer I got to the package, the more I smelled something amazing...and I tried shaking it, and Not. A. Sound! So I was intrigued...and I opened it...and its all so amazing!!!!! I'll be posting pictures this evening in the gallery.

As for crafty progress - I had a brilliant idea as I was heating my lower back last night wishing I could actually get out of my seat to do something...I do not recommend one's feet skating one direction, while the rest of one's human feels the need to go the other...  ::) So now I need to pick up a few more supplies and the coffee and I'll be ready to send soon!!

(and just a warning - I recently had my debit card # stolen....and the last place I used it before noticing all the funky charges was Michael's craft store...I know they've had this happen one other time, but they promised their customers they upgraded their systems...so, just be cautious!)

I have one project totally finished (my favorite, so far!) and one 95% complete - I just need to obtain _______ for them. Mug has been acquired. I need to go to the coffee shop this week (I am SO looking forward to sniffing the beans  ::)) and I'm thankful I don't have to buy myself any coffee - the beans quilted sent me are AMAZING! I have one project to finish up/touch up, and one more that's 98% done but I'm not sure if it'll be making it in the final cut...we'll see :) I may need a sturdier box when it's all said and done!!  ;)

I am totally up for another round! It would even be fun to have a few different partners and send each a small amount of coffee and one or two small items...I love to spread the java love :)
