It can be chocolate power, candy bar, cocoa, syrup, any form but chocolate (white, milk, dark) doesn't matter. In each spot all 4 cards must be same recipe but colors, design etc can be different so we can use up a few scrap papers....

~You may sign up for more than one spot just make each set a different recipe
~ Embellish please ! Think Valentines

Due Date Feburary 1st so we can have them back by Valentines!

Mailing: Place each group in a plastic bag label bag with your real name and user name. Also include a self address stamp envelope with the amount of stamps it took you to mail perhaps one extra in case needed.

Once you sign up I'll add you to the list and I'll pm you my address for mailing. I will also contribute recipes. Usually I can can some time especially with due date off aways.

Welcome ladies you both have 2 spots and SPECIAL surprize treats! I love to make special Valentine treats and plan a special supper and it just dawn on me my recipes are packed in box somewhere (time for new) BUT I found them this morning!!!! yea.

so my recipes (as I'm creating also are from a small handmade booklet I received at least 10 yrs ago from attending a Valentines Chocolate festival. oh the memories I'm still working on losing those pounds (lol) the event was a 2 day event in Glendale Az and the vendors including reps from "chocolate companies" anyway they made treats for us to sample, did workshops on working with "chocolate" and its health and nutrional values!

thats right it really does have value! American Heart association even agree's. We learnt about the history of chocolates and remember "SEE"S" candies? they handed out samples also several smaller candy companies. They only had event that one year but it was well worth it. we did a thing where each vendor booth or each workshop leader had receipe cards and as you visited them you got a recipe and a booklet stamped with a sweet saying, so I'm using those recipes for us!

I treasure my book and hopefully we will create a version of it together for each of us!!!! you can NEVER have to much chocolate on hand and right after Valentines we can use them to make homemade EASTER chocolates (yea) so my recipes will all be "candy" but swap is open to any chocolate items!!!!! Has anyone ever heard of a chocolate Main dish? lol

Hello there! Chocolate! Yes! May I have one spot for now? I will probably take another later, but need to check my swapping schedule.

reminding us that answers are sometimes just a simple phone call away!


Mr. Norton was in the hospital recovering from an operation when the nurse on duty received a call from a man who asked how Mr. Norton was doing. "Oh, quite well. We expect he'll be released in the morning."

"Very good, thank you."

"May I ask who is calling so that I can tell Mr. Norton?" inquired the nurse.

"This IS Mr. Norton. The doctors don't tell me anything!"

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to seek good medical care when ill!


A Veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor. The doctor asked her all the usual questions: what were the symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc. Suddenly, she interrupted him: "Hey look, I'm a vet - I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions: I can tell what's wrong just by looking." She smugly added, "Why can't you?"

The doctor nodded, stood back, looked her up and down, quickly wrote out a prescription, handed it to her and said, "There you are. Of course, if that doesn't work, we'll have to have you put to sleep."

A lady lost her handbag at the mall. An honest young lad found it and returned it to her. Looking in her purse, she said, "Hmm, that's funny. When I lost my bag, there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills."

The boy replied, "That IS funny. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward."

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with a reminder to appreciate emergency personnel!


Part of my job as a 911 dispatcher is to interrogate callers who are in various states of panic so I can send the appropriate emergency equipment. One day a woman called to say that a family member had fallen and needed to go to a hospital.

After finding out where she lived and assuring her that the paramedics would arrive shortly, I asked her, "Do you know what caused the fall?"

"No," the woman nervously replied. "What?"

with a reminder to BE Genuine/Real!


A young businessman had just started his own firm. He had just rented a beautiful office and had it furnished with antiques. Sitting there, he saw a man come into the outer office. Wishing to appear the hot shot, the businessman picked up the phone and started to pretend he had a big deal working. He threw huge figures around and made giant commitments. Finally he hung up and asked the visitor, "Can I help you?"

"Yeah, I've come to activate your phone lines."

Hi all! I have been sitting in my chair trying to finish a book on my kindle - Flowers on Main by Sherryl Woods. Got 20 pages left but want to make chocolate chip bars, so I had better get to it. I have to go to work at noon.
Have a good day everyone!

Busy with catching up on other swaps and working tons. I didn't see that you added me to your list; but if there are enough people, I would like to increase to two spots. Mole sauce is an acquired taste - not sweet though as you would think. I've tried it a few times, not my cup of tea. I have two recipes that I would like to share with the group.....I am leary of people who don't like chocolate, I often ask them....how can we be friends??? lol

My dear CherryLime, I sure didn't mean to miss you. so sorry. of course I'll add you for 2 spots I've seen your work also you are pretty darn good!!!! lol I know what you mean how can one go through life and not llike chocolate? it's just not natural, you know? lol enjoy and have fun with the recipes great time of year to try them and of course what a special Valentines treat (homemade chocolate)

Jeanette's reaction to the mole sauce turned me off, I'm picky and if someone has that strong a reaction, I tend to get leary of the item. have 2nd thoughts about trying it. on other hand I love a great recommendation!

The following is an ad from a newspaper which appeared four days in a row - the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day's mistake.

MONDAY:
For sale: R. D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone 948-0707 after 7 P.M.. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap.

TUESDAY:
Notice: We regret having erred In R. D. Jones' ad yesterday. It should have read "One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 948-0707 and ask for Mrs. Kelly, who lives with him after 7 P.M."

WEDNESDAY:
Notice: R. D. Jones has informed us that he has received several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the classified ad yesterday. The ad stands correct as follows: "For sale -- R. D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 948-0707 after 7 P.M. and ask for Mrs. Kelly who loves with him."

THURSDAY:
Notice: I, R. D. Jones, have no sewing machine for sale. I intentionally broke it. Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I have not been carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until yesterday she was my housekeeper, but she has now quit.

Jeanette's reaction to the mole sauce turned me off, I'm picky and if someone has that strong a reaction, I tend to get leary of the item. have 2nd thoughts about trying it. on other hand I love a great recommendation!
Oh, Linda... I'm sorry! I didn't mean to turn you off before you even tried it. I'm all for trying things - well, not weird meat, but other things. But when I find I don't like something, I don't eat it again unless I'm in a situation where I have to - like on a mission trip. I eat WHATEVER I am served when on a mission trip.

You might very well like the mole sauce... remember, my DD loves it. Be brave... go for it!

I have never laughed so hard in long time as that joke Jeanette posted today about the sewing machine!!!!! that is so funny! I love it.

I also have never had a day like today!! I have to share a wonderful person here in SCS and previously in one of my swaps, sent me a box of cards and card tops completed from swaps over the years which she never found use for. I cannot tell you how speechless I was it was totally a surprize and un-expected. after going through theem I went and got my angel neighbor (she's like a grand mother to me) and we spent several hours looking touching feeling and examing beautiful card tops and cards sent by this person. I'm not identifing her so as not to embaress her if she didn't want that wonderful deed known to others!!!!

we are now in process of matching cardstock or paper to the card tops to complete a card (actually its my neighbor doing that) she's so excited and we will end up using every card in probally next 6 months since she gives cards to everyone in community and I have seen some wonderful tecniques I never seen up close before. I am also making a journal of the way the card looks and how it looks like some things were done!

What a wonderful thoughtful gift from someone who doesn't even know us very well. Truly a generous heart she is cleaning her craft room and some of those swaps were dated back to 2001 God bless her I hope she gets that craft room clean!!!!

then to complete the day a friend brought over a 3 layer chocolate chip homemade cake with a milk chocolate frosting also homemade!!!! I'm in heaven tonight it just dawned on me I forgot to tell neighbor we were so wrapped up in the paper I forgot the cake!!!!!!! oh well, quess i'll have to eat 2 peices lol

I hope your day is going as well as this has for me!

Good Morning Friends!
*Ü* TGIF!!!! *Ü*

Ho! Ho! Ho!!!
Just a friendly reminder…
There are only 17 shopping days until Christmas!!!


... ... ... ...



Today is Enlightenment Day,
National Cotton Candy Day, (it was originally called Fairy Floss)
Faux Fur Day,
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day,
and International Civil Aviation Day.


Enjoy your holiday of choice today!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
with a reminder to not be boastful!


A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation. There he meets an Aussie farmer and gets talking. The Aussie shows off his big wheat field and the Texan says, "Oh! We have wheat fields that are at least twice as large".

Then they walk around the ranch a little, and the Aussie shows off his herd of cattle. The Texan immediately says, " We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows".

The conversation has, meanwhile, almost died when the Texan sees a group of kangaroos hopping through the field. He asks, "And what are those"?

The Aussie replies with an incredulous look, "Don't you have any grasshoppers in Texas"?

Hello Ladies--you might have noticed that Jeanette has been absent from SCS since last Friday. She wanted me to tell all of you she is fine--however there are some health issues for some of her family members that she is dealing with. She is not sure when she will be back to post or share her Weird Holidays............... but she misses everyone and will be back soon. If you have can send a prayer her way, that would be wonderful. Thanks!

Good Morning Linda and all my fellow swappers!

Barb, thank you for coming to the threads and letting people know I was alive during my absence. I appreciate you so much!!!

Thank you for your sweet words, Linda. We're still dealing with a lot right now, but we're hanging in there and hopefully I won't be so MIA in the future. I've missed all of the fun I normally have on SCS.

awwww... thanks, Linda! It's so nice to be missed. Things are still a bit overwhelming here, but I'm going to try not to go missing again. And I'll start the Public Service Announcements again ASAP.

My favorite flower is one we grow in pots in the summer time - Rose Moss. It is so soft, delicate and colorful. Love it! What's your favorite flower? And what is your favorite way to eat chocolate? (I'm kind of partial to fudge - yum! and I love the Cherry Mash candy bars when I can find them - they are coated with chocolate.)

I know Rose Moss that's a old flower one you don't see or hear of often. great choice. I'm an old gardner I love them all but my favorite is lilac's in spring. there are only with us a very short time once a year but they give it their all in fragrance! but like I say love them all. I truly believe you MUST make time in life to smell the flowers or you've missed it all. My favorite chocolate is chocolate covered cherries!

I use to get them every Christmas from my grand mother, she passed away and my dad picked up her place until he passed away. ocassionly my grown children will think of it but not often. they were part of my Christmas from as far back as I can remember and when both passed away and the chocolate covered cherries stopped appearing under my tree it was so missed! I associate Christmas with that candy. so now I buy a box each year for me (sounds silly but sometimes I still wrap it and put it under the tree) brings back wonderful memories of times past.

they say we can smell certain smells and it brings memories alive to us and I believe that because the cherries do that for me. Folks I promise you I'm not nuts!!!!! just learned to appreciate the past and memories. You just never know when its a little thing that will mean so much. I am glad you are back but please don't push yourself just go slow we are all here for you. your health is important.
