Sign-up date range: July 20-27.  Sign-ups closing at 8 pm EST on the 27th.
Date to send item by: September 8 extended to September 10
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope! 
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No
If so, which country? N/A
Age requirement? 13+, just make sure you or a parent can get you to the post office on time!

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:

Credit where credit is due:  this swap was rosesanplacebos's idea!


Do you love candy and all things sweet?  Missed the cupcake swap but looooove cupcakes?  This swap may be for you! 

We will be swapping items that are candy or sweet themed.  You can do chocolates, cupcakes, cakes, pies, lollipops... any kind of tasty sweet theme!

This is a fairly laid-back swap, considering the amount of crafting time we've got.  Your requirements for this swap are ONE MEDIUM ITEM and THREE SMALL ITEMS.  You and your partner can always decide to exchange more, but this is all that you are required to do.

This swap has an extended crafting date because many of us are going back to school at the end of August.  With the increased workload that comes with school, I thought it was only fair to give an extra week so we're not scrambling to send when school starts.  IF YOU ARE FINISHED before the send-out date, feel free to send!  Sending earlier is always encouraged, but not required!

Candy is not required as part of the package, but you can feel free to add it in!  Just be careful of the climate to which you're sending; if it's going to be hot and a package may sit outside, you wouldn't want to send chocolate or something else that may melt or perish.

If you are not able to take and post photos in our gallery, MAKE SURE YOU LET YOUR PARTNER KNOW so (s)he can take them before the items are shipped!

When you have shipped, you must send your group leader a PM to let her know, and it must include a tracking number (unless your partner is not in the same country)!  If you've never swapped before and don't know how to get a tracking number, they are easy to obtain from the USPS.  Every post office has the option to add Delivery Confirmation to your package for under $1.  The receipt is bright lime green and white. 

If you are shipping internationally, you MUST save your post office receipt as proof that you sent your package, JUST IN CASE it gets lost.  Just put it in a safe place!

To see things that others have sent in similar swaps, refer to these galleries:



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

Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

What are your favorite kinds of candy/sweets?
Is there anything that you would NOT like to receive?
Do you have any pets?
Do you smoke?
Do you have any allergies?
Anything else your partner should know?

Do you promise to post photos or ask your partner to do so?
Do you promise to publicly thank your partner for the items (s)he has sent you?



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

Oooooh, Jenicat, I could just kill you!  I just convinced myself (like an hour ago) that I wouldn't sign up for any more swaps until all my other swap obligations are completed.  And then you go and do this to me!

Well... I'll try and have two of three done by the time signups are done for this one, and if I do, I'll join if there's still room.

You ladies and you're temptressing!  LOL   Tongue

(Especially since sendouts are the day before my birthday!  What a fun present that would be!)


I am walking 12 hours straight for my local Relay For Life event.  [a href="http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY11MW?px=16690269&pg=personal&fr_id=30095"]Please support me![/a href] I'm only 40% to my goal! =0(

Hahah, littlebiskit.  Smiley  But... it's so ...fun!  Candy and cupcakes and sweet things!  I know what you mean, though... I'm pretty much always in 5 swaps now.  Wink  They are just so fun.

Okay, everyone who has sent a questionnaire has been added to the list above, and has had "in progress" feedback for this swap added to their profile.  I've been checking as I've been doing it, so you don't have to check, but if you want to see it on there, feel free.  Wink

sugaree:  I'm so sorry you can't join!  But yes, hopefully we'll have a round 2!  Have fun on your vacation!

By the way, rosesanplacebos, I was singing that song (I'm so excited...) last night after I updated the participants list, and my husband kept staring at me with this look on his face like, "why the hell are you singing that song?"

Smiley  ...but then he started singing along.  Smiley
