WOWWEEE! I receieved my package from Delana a few days ago, I've already taken tons of pictures but the stupid computer won't let me upload them. Dang it!
Anyway I'm trying to get them on here as I can.
Everyone really went all out on each other. I'm going to have to send my swap partner more stuff!

I don't know why I keep having such problems trying to post my pictues on here. Anyway I gave up but I have them all posted nicely on my blog.

So I say check em' out on there. I'm sorry this took me so long to post it. Been trying to finish exams so this chocolate couldn't have come at a better time!

Delana, my swap partner really outdid herself and I cannot thank her enough! Delana, thanks so much girl! Your getting somthing extra from seattle this weekend to make up for my box.

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 =)
-- Lissi

Glad you like it!

Since Heatherfeather is having problems with the pictures, I thought I'd post a few of the things I sent to her.  Smiley  Hope that's okay, Heather.

Various chocolatey things, mostly English but a few things I ordered from VeganEssentials in the US.  My favourite were the chocolate sticks, which are tubes of chocolate covered in paper which look just like cigarettes, and they come in a packet that looks just like a cigarette packet.  They're from France.

A S'Mores scarf!  Burnt bits and everything.

And a chocolate recipe book, with many chocolate images on the outsides and some recipes involving chocolate on the inside.  Inside the front cover is a quote that says "It's not that chocolate is a substitute for love.  Love is a substitute for chocolate.  Chocolate is, let's face it, far more reliable than a man."

I'm happy you liked it all, Heather!  Smiley

I just received my package from tsubomi_chan today


and chocolate soap, which my friend said 'is that actually soap - oh! I would have tried to eat it!' lol (far right in main pic)

Thanks soo much tsubomi_chan, you're a great swap partner Smiley

TheRehn asked me to post another picture of the chocolate soaps because hers came out blurry. . . I don't have any individual pictures, but here is the group pic I took.

I had so much fun making them! I'm sad I ran out of soap base and wasn't able to make more. . .

Okay, here are the pics of the loot I recieved from RobynLisa.   Sorry it took me so long to get them on here but I was swamped with trying to pass my classes and my jorb.  Then, my digi decided to try and crap out on me.   Guess I'm going to have to look into investing in a new one, unless you can get a replacement door for the battery compartment....mine is cracked.  :-/

Loved everything I got!  I have managed to not eat of lot of it until pics were taken, too! 

Group shot:

Closer on the bowl:

Not pictured:  Creamy KitKat.  I couldnt help myself....needed the energy during a late night paper-writing session!

Yummay!  Thanks again, RobynLisa!

I can do personal swaps!  ^_^
